So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. (John 8:36). Many of God’s children hold grudges and harbor unforgiveness. This is not living in the fullness of God. How can it be, when we who live in this world are bound by the hardness of these spirits? Harboring these feelings is blocking you from receiving the fullness of God, Who is LOVE. God is love (1 John 4:8). He forgave us and He created us in His image (Genesis 1:27).
Do we think He is pleased with or is willing to justify our emotions? God is a Father that cannot lie (Number 23:19). He is not a liar. He says in His word to forgive so the He may forgive us. How can the enemy fool God’s people in this manner? We are to forgive, not only others, but ourselves (Colossians 3:13). Unforgiviness opens the door to many other things. It hinders our spiritual growth; it stops us from moving freely in the things of God because of lack of trust, and fear of being hurt. In a lot of cases it opens the door to sickness and infirmities.
Why allow something from the past to do all this? Give them and the situation to God and allow Him to fight for you and at the same time He will heal you. Disappointment in others is a part of life. No man on this earth is perfect. This is why we are to turn to Jesus as our everything. He is a walking example of how not to depend soley on people. He was realistic about the disciple’s flaws and kept His eyes on God His whole walk. Be needy of God, not man. Let go of the hurt and forgive. God will do the rest.
Scripture of the Day: “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” – Galatians 5:1
