14 “If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you.15 But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.
Wow! The bible is really clear on unforgiveness! It says very clearly: if we do not forgive others then God is not going to forgive us! I don't know about you but I fail daily as a Christian and I need forgiveness!!!
My Gran Gran says it the best to me. She said The Lord taught her many years ago this demonstration and it really burned into her spirit. She says to stretch out your arms and open your hands with your palms facing up. She says that is what our lives are life when we walk in forgiveness! We are open to receive blessings from God! The next demonstration is to stretch out your arms and open your hands with your palms facing up also. Then clench your hands into fist as tight as you can! Wow! She says God told her that is how we live if we choose to not forgive. We are spiritually closed and cannot revive God's blessings! That is definitely not a place that I would ever want to be!!!
I know a lot people have a hard time with forgiveness but remember we can do nothing without God! Ask God to help you with the forgiveness process! What seems impossible to man is possible with God.
Choose to forgive those who have wronged you. Even if you think they don't deserve to be forgiven. Do it because God has commanded us to. Choose to live in freedom today!!!
