Forgive, Forgiven and Forgiveness

Posted on March 24, 2013Ann “afriend4ever54” Friend

The ability or choice to forgive, be forgiven and offer forgiveness requires a spiritual connection and grace from God. We can all relate that in life, stuff happens and each of us has a story we could tell.

Forgiveness is for us–let go of (fill in the blank) and let God! Some things we hold onto keeps us from moving forward. Keeps us stuck! Let it go, release it to God by faith and watch what He will do.

When God is taking us through the fiery furnace, molding and shaping to put the fruits of the spirit in us so that we are more like His Son Jesus; let’s just say, He gets His way eventually :)sooner or later we get tired of going around the same mountain.

There are vile and horrible things happening all around us to people who don’t know God or that He loves them. As children of God, we are to show them God–through our life style, speech–the fruits of the spirit and none of this is possible if we can’t forgive.

God takes care of those who mistreat His children.

God is always in charge. He is always the same.

to be continued…..

Matthew 6:12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

Psalms 32:1 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.

Psalms 86:5 For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.

Proverbs 17:9 He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeaters a matter separateth very friends.

Mark 11:26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

Luke 6:37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

Luke 17:3 Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.

Luke 17:4 And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.

Luke 23:34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

Matthew 18:21-22 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

Isaiah 35:4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.

Romans 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

A powerful quote about forgiveness. Forgive others. Forgive ourself. Give it to God! Put it at the foot of the cross and by faith, forgive ______________ and ourself. This brings peace and freedom only God can give!

Forgiveness and renewing the mind can work together. It is a process and must be our choice to forgive and release _________________, to God. Only God can heal areas, from the inside, with no emotional residue to linger. Sure, we may never forget but the power to cripple will diminish.

Heavenly Father, by faith, help us forgive and let go of anything keeping us from complete forgiveness. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
