Forgiveness, A Powerful Tool…
Good morning beautiful people. Recently, I sat under a teaching on forgiveness once again. The man spoke about how when we are hurt we need to be quick to forgive. He spoke about words that hurt and cause people to bleed inside (inner hurts). Sometimes the expression on another persons face is from the results from words that were spoken. Many times it is easier to have the broken arm, the bruised body than to carry around the pain of inner hurts.
Today, we can bring painful words and actions, the hurts, even the scars left behind and be made whole again. It can change the expression on our faces.
Father, thank you a bruised reed you will not break, and a smoldering wick you will not snuff out. In faithfulness, you will bring forth justice. (Isaiah 42:3)
Father, thank you for the grace to forgive the words and actions that have caused pain. Thank you that today we can choose to forgive the people that brought the hurt. Ephesians 4:32 tells us to be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave us.
Father, please empower others to forgive us for when we have done wrong and brought pain to them intentionally or unintentionally. Nothing escapes your watchful eye and you hear and see everything.
Father, help our words to be kind and gentle as proverbs 15:1 tells us; A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
Together, all across this globe we release the power of forgiveness. We receive the healing balm of Gilead. Jesus is the healing balm. Amen.
Have a blessed day God’s beautiful people. Find a new level of freedom as we forgive.
