A Promise For You From Bible Promises:
Unforgiveness: Satanic Weapon
But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matthew 6:15. Read: Matt. 6:12-15
Whenever some people are offended, you hear them saying all sorts of words like, I will never forgive you over my dead body. Till I die, I will not forgive him/her. Heaven seekers must not say such words because Jesus said, For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matt. 6:14-15. And if God do not forgive you, it means you are His enemy and His enemy will never be with Him in His Kingdom. To err is human, forgiveness divine. As long as we are human, we are bound to make mistakes and offend each other. Forgiveness must be part of us as children of God because we are created in His image and also, He forgives us whenever we sin against Him because He knows our frame that we are dust. Ps. 103:13-14.
Yesterday, I made mentioned of four ways to handle offenders which one of them is grace to forgive. Yes, we all need grace to forgive our offenders. You can also ask God for grace to forbear. To forbear mean, To forgive an offender before he/she offends you. God forgave us our sins before we ask Him for forgiveness.
* Be like your Heavenly Father who forgive all.
