Key to Freedom – Forgiveness: 40 Yrs. with Jesus – Day 142,561
We do seem like fakes; the times we have said we forgive, when deep down in our hearts we want that person to burn in hell. We learned as children to say “sorry” but forgiveness is deeper, it is a process but, I have discovered that there is that moment when it really comes true!
Growing up we called it our “bad bag”. Everyone that caused us an injustice, we carried around in our thoughts every day. Then if a new person harmed us we would throw them in the bag with everyone else and compound the injustices that were already in the bag.
Some men have gone to the moon, discovered cures for diseases, saved people from burning buildings or have written the greatest symphony…well…my great goal, accomplishment, achievement was to empty my “bad bag”.
Once empty, BURN IT!
Now, you no longer have a bad bag!
It is a process; one that for me started by understanding the injustices that Jesus; the Son of God encountered and then followed His path of how to forgive. I have honestly prayed Matthew 6:12 “…And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors” (NKJV). Today I can pray it in advance:
Father God I purpose in my heart to forgive in advance anyone who would try to harm me or my family this day, help me to walk in forgiveness, Amen.
Today I pray that you would open YOUR “bad bag” and just dump it, you may feel like a fake in the beginning but as the process continues it DOES become REAL!
