Forgiveness – A Powerful Gift

What’s going on?

Last night I attended a powerful men’s ministry meeting on forgiveness. Forgiveness is such a powerful gift from heaven. It’s like a door on our heart. When we choose to forgive, it opens our heart so that we can receive everything God has in store for us. But when we hold onto unforgiveness, bitterness and resentment, it closes up our heart, and keeps us from moving forward physically, but mainly spiritually.

What does God say?

“…whoever has been forgiven little loves little.” (Luke 7:47, NIV). The Scripture also tells us that, “if we don’t forgive others, God cannot forgive us” (Matthew 6:15). That’s because the door on our heart is closed. If forgiveness doesn’t go out, forgiveness can’t come in. But when we choose to forgive, we open our heart so we can receive His forgiveness, and allow His love to flow freely through us. Forgiveness increases our capacity to receive! Hallelujah!

What do I do now?

Today remember, people will let you down, they will hurt you and disappoint you. Don’t let the actions of others block your relationship with the Father by holding unforgiveness. Instead, choose to forgive, so that you can increase your capacity to receive every blessing and favour God has in store for you!

Let’s Pray

Yahweh, thank You for forgiving me and setting me free from the sins of unforgiveness, bitterness and resentment. Father, today I have decided to forgive others, which will make room in my heart to receive Your forgiveness and love. Almighty God, thank You for accepting me with my sins and setting me free, in Christ’s Name! Amen.
