Forgiveness Doesn’t Excuse Their Behavior Forgiveness Prevents Their Behavior From Destroying Your Heart!
Isn’t that an awesome way to think about it when others may be less then appropriate in our lives? Sometimes we just have to forgive the way Jesus did, as it says in the Bible.
Mathew 6 14-15
“For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 “But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
You know there are times when we just have to give it up to God and ask for him to step in our situation and forgive others as others have forgiven us. What a awesome act of kindness that in many ways demonstrates Gods Love on a whole new level.
I remember in the past before I really new Jesus there were times that others have forgiven me for something I said or did and I remember it striking me by thinking wow this person has the biggest heart and really cares.
Isn’t that how Gods love is for us? He demonstrates his forgiveness
and Love and kindness all the time.
You know sometimes when we try and forgive somebody it’s not necessarily easy, you know sometimes people may have done something that is really unforgivable in the flesh, but when you walk with God and you truly know him and you ask him into your heart and every piece of your world it gets easier easier to forgive someone. Just know that that’s what Jesus did when he was here. There were so many people that hurt him in different ways but he knew to forgive and believe the best in people and it’s so freeing when were able to do this so learn to forgive and learn to go to the next level and know that God will be there with you ensuring every step of the way.
There can be times where we have to ask for forgiveness not only for our own actions but the actions of others as well. Have you ever been in charge of a department or even being a parent you may find your self in this situation. These situations can be delicate and many times its what we do long before the asking or granting forgiveness is what matters. Do you come to God in prayer and ask him to go before you and ensure all of your days are directed by him and all of your steps are on track with his vision?
When God intervenes he may put it in someones heart just like the good Lord forgives us when we fall and allows us to continue on and hopefully get better and do things in a more efficient way.
When we stay on course and forgive others and learn to be caring and Love one another just like Gods Love for us we are well on our way to an Elevated life.
You know Jesus really helps us overcome obstacles. Sometimes in life as we go through, it can seem like some obstacles are getting in our way and are not easily overcome. With God on our side we know we can overcome them.
I know a few years ago when we were trying to buy a home in a really tough economy, it was not looking great and we began to think that maybe it just wasn’t going to happen, yeah we kept our faith in the good Lord, stayed faithful and then coming out of nowhere, a lady showed up and really stepped in and helped our situation. She had all the Godfidence in the world and we are sure she must of been sent from above as our Angel.
Genesis 21:17 And God heard the voice of the lad. Then the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said to her, “What ails you, Hagar? Fear not, for God has heard the voice of the lad where he is.
There are times where our situation can just seems hopeless like there is no getting past that hurdle or you start to think this is a mountain to climb and is this really possible? When you pray and step out with Jesus by your side he can help you over those obstacles.
You know at times its simply amazing to watch the Lord work. Each day is a gift from him and just know he is working behind the scenes to line things up.
My God Son was recently trying to join the military and was getting a feeling of why is this taking so long and because of some tattoos he has on his arms he thought he was not going to be able to get in. Well when you have Godfidence in the almighty guess who shows up and moves that mountain? He is now almost done processing and starting his career.
When we trust in the his ways and know they are higher then our ways, the most high God will set the course! Does it always happen immediately? No not always. Like our house buying took many months of waiting & praying. But eventually God and our Angel came through.
That’s what happens when were faithful, people show up and help your situation. I know that’s what happened. The right people showed up at the right time and made it happen.
Stay faithful and don’t Give up and know the Lord is shifting things in your favor as longs as we put our trust in him and his timing. If that door does close, go knock on another one God wants you to go through.
Long story short we ended up buying the home and we’ve been happy really ever since, so you know
you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you and helps you get over obstacles! That’s the message today everybody have a Blessed day see you tomorrow.
