Love and Forgive By Jeanne Theriault
When someone hurts you, forgive them
When feeling bitter, release love on them
When hurts arise, ask God’s healing and pray for them
When thoughts of resentment, release blessings on them
At any time when you have ill thoughts or feeling of those who have hurt you , speak out and release love, forgiveness, healing and blessings.
Romans 12:14 Bless those who persecute you, bless and do not curse. 17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. 20 If your enemy is hungry feed him, if he is thirsty give him something to drink. In doing this you will heap burning coals on his head.
Matthew 5:44 But I tell you the truth, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you .
Luke 6:27 But I tell you who hear me Love your enemies , do good to those who hate you. 28 Bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.
It is one of the hardest thing to walk in love. But it is a choice you need to make, not for there benefit but for yours. At any given time when you have ill feelings of those who have hurt you or betrayed you , speak out and release love, forgiveness, healing, blessings and pray for them.
God showed his love for us
John 15:12 My command is this, love each other as I have loved you 13 Greater love has no one than this that he layed down his life for his friends 14 You are my friends if you do what I command.
Forgive sincerely don’t harbor grudges or hatred
Leviticus 19:17 Do not hate your brother in your heart 18 Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people but love your neighbor as yourself.
Ephesians 4:31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassion to one another, forgiving each other just as Christ God forgave you .
Colossians 3:12 Therefore as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved clothe yourselves with compassion kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you 14 And over all these virtues put on love which binds them together in perfect unity. 15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts.
Is that you? I believe that God is speaking to your heart today. God is saying to you my child it is time for you to forgive. Give it all to God with a pure heart and allow him to heal you. You need not to hold on to the past hurts. Your past will keep you from going into your future.
Matthew 6:14 For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their sins your Father will not forgive you.
These words are powerful. Just remember God forgives you and he requires for you also to forgive others.
For when you hold on to pain, hurts, anger all it does is causes stress and unhappiness. You are not hurting the other person , you are hurting yourself . In order for you to move on you need to forgive. Time heals all wounds. Jesus walked in forgiveness up to the cross when crucified
Luke 23:34 Father forgive them for they do not know what they are doing.
The Father requires you to do the same thing , he will give you the strength and the grace and bless you with peace.
Psalm 29:11 The Lord gives strength to his people the Lord blesses his people with peace.
Philippians 3:13 Brothers forgetting what was behind and straining toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heaven ward in Christ Jesus.
Isaiah 43:18 Forget the former things do not dwell in the past 19 See I am doing a new thing, now it springs up do you not perceive it?
Lord it is your will for all to forgive and to love. Just like you forgave and loved us. You came on earth to set an example. Lord help me to leave the past behind to walk in forgivenss and love . It is my desire to forgive others in the same way you have forgiven me . Forgive me where as I have failed to walk in forgiveness. Teach me your ways O Lord in all things .Let my heart be pleasing to you O Lord an to be obedient to your word in forgiving and loving others as you have loved me and forgiven me Amen
