I forgave an enemy today and I feel empowered, relieved, and ready to move on!!!
The bible speaks a lot about forgiveness and what is expected of us. I do know it is hard to forgive as our approach to forgiveness is sometimes done in the flesh and not in the spirit.
When someone has a grudge against you and you against them, it shouldn’t be expected that when you are ready to forgive, that they are ready. Also, forgiveness doesn’t necessarily mean reconciliation with the person that hurts you, or condoning of their actions.
What I do know is that there is a peace that happens along with the assurance that you have been obedient to Gods word and his expectation of us.
Here are some scriptures on forgiveness that empowers me.
Matthew 6:14 – For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you don not forgive men for their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
Ephesians 1:7 – In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.
Mark 11:25 – And when you stand in praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.
