A reminder for today
Now, however, it is time to forgive and comfort him. Otherwise he may be overcome by discouragement. So I urge you now to reaffirm your love for him. (2 Corinthians 2:7-8)
Forgiveness is the most powerful tool we possess. It not only breaks the chains of the enemy; it also releases you from the power the enemy could have on you. It also releases the other person from the same grip. Forgives heals and builds.
So now I encourage you to forgive and let go so that the other person will not be discouraged but rather be encouraged to do better by the love you show. Forgiveness is all about love and it embodies the scripture where Jesus says that you should love another like yourself. Real love sees no hate and real love brings about freedom for all.
So today I want you to forgive just as God has forgiven you. Hold no grudges and keep no record of the wrongs against you. Love with compassion and speak life over all those that needs your forgiveness. Release yourself from the bonds of the enemy by forgiving and forgetting.
Then Peter came to him and asked, "Lord, how often should I forgive someone who sins against me? Seven times?" "No, not seven times," Jesus replied, "but seventy times seven! (Matthew 18:21-22)
Lord, help us to forgive with compassion and give us the strength to release those we hold in our grudges. Help us to love completely and set us free from the enemy. In Jesus name.
Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
