FORGIVENESS CAN BE TOUGH, BUT IT IS REQUIRED TO BE FORGIVEN!
Mark 11:25, And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
WE ALL KNOW WE HAVE TO FORGIVE OR WE GET A ROOT OF BITTERNESS. Heb. 12:15, Look after each other so that none of you fails to receive the grace of God. Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many.
THE MOST CHALLENGING PERSON TO FORGIVE IS OURSELVES.
When we forgive others we are setting ourselves free from the hold they would have on our lives through memories. We choose to set them free through forgiveness, which ultimately sets us free from bitterness.
MOST PEOPLE STRUGGLE WITH FORGIVING THEMSELVES BECAUSE THE MEMORIES ARE ALWAYS STREAMING THROUGH THE MIND.
The majority of great people in the Bible had to come to the place of forgiving themselves to continue in Jesus.
David the king of Israel – had to move on from the Bathsheba sin.
Peter had to move past his denial of Christ 3 times.
YOU MUST CHOOSE TO ARREST THE THOUGHTS AND MOVE ON TO FORGIVE YOURSELF SO YOU CAN MOVE FORWARD IN THE WILL OF GOD.
You cannot reel back time and get a re-do, BUT you can choose to forgive yourself and move forward.
That does not mean there will not be consequences, but there is forgiveness for yourself!
SET YOURSELF FREE TODAY FROM THE SINS OF YOUR PAST!
Jesus forgave you and now it is time to forgive yourself.
