I do hope that you all are well and warm on this cold day here up north or are comfortable no matter where you are on GOD’s earth. It is so good to know we have a patient and loving GOD who watches over us all. Be it those of us who are saved or not. GOD waits for us to come to HIM, it is our choice whether to love GOD and HIS beloved son or not.
It is our choice whether to forgive and pray for our enemies or not too. For if we do not forgive, how can we be forgiven by GOD? It is not easy to forgive anyone who has hurt you. A school mate, a neighbor, a spouse, a family member, a co worker, even a stranger who you will most likely never see again. But it needs to be done so we do not hold the feelings in you of hurt that they have put upon you.
And if you see this person day to day, you are remembered of what they had done to you when you see them. This is the hardest thing to do , is to forgive when you are hurt. I am sure there are many who are reading this was hurt by someone.
But what about those of us who had hurt someone else? You want those you hurt to forgive you too right? So here’s the thing. GOD wants us all to forgive so we all can be forgiven. Its is how GOD wants it so it should be done as such. GOD will forgive us too.
“Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:”
King James Version (KJV)
Communication is very important when we talk to each in hoping a truthful understand was accomplished. This is not always the case even with brothers and sisters in the LORD. I have seen men not speak to each other for years over a simple misunderstanding and not wanting to do what GOD says to do. Being prideful. One more stubborn than the other who will not accept the apology under any circumstances.
Not doing GOD’s will by being stubborn and not wanting to forgive. Even when one wants to make things right, both have to forgive and make peace. Both! Because the devil loves it when people do not get along and want peace, the devil does not want people to forgive each other.
But remember, it is GOD’s heaven. We all need to understand this, GOD does not want any strife in HIS heaven. A 1/3 of the bad angels got kicked out of heaven for causing strife!
“And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.”
King James Version (KJV)
Mankind does not rule anyone or anything. All creation belongs to GOD. Let us treat each other with respect. When a fellow mankind is saying things to you, or doing things to you that is not right in GODS eye and you don’t like it think about this. Remember the things you may have said or done your whole life that you have done to people. Things that may have hurt them knowingly or knowingly. You want GOD to forgive you too of these things too. GOD knows all, sees all too.
Make amends with those around you. Don not let either one of you die, and then you can not forgive the person or they forgive you. If there is not way to find to locate them on your own, pray and pray some more to forgive them. So that you will be forgiven as well too.
Don’t take your anger to the grave when then it is too late. JESUS forgave us of our sins. HE sacrificed HIS Self on the cross. JESUS was treated so horrible and gave HIS life for all of us mankind so we all can be forgiven.
This human thing about judging others we do not even know in a ungodly way is wrong too. What does the bible say about that? You can hurt others by judging them to be ungodly when you are doing the very thing first! Which is being ungodly by judging. Such as saying “those people are like this or that.” And they can be more righteous and faithful to GOD than you are and have accepted JESUS as savior. So you will want to be forgiven of these thoughts towards people or a person you do not know. Let us study the word together in unity for peace.
