“and be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”
Ephesians 4:32 KJV
You need to be ready to freely forgive others because God forgave you! Be quickly to forgive thoroughly because the Lord forgave you! Forgiveness gives you freedom from internal bondage. ❤️
Forgiveness is a gift that is found in the grace of God. If you have grace then you can definitely forgive! If you stop comparing your good to the good of the one who hurt you, you would be at a better place in measuring your good to God’s infinite Holiness. As s child of God, loving your enemies and putting REAL LOVE, God’s love into action is true forgiveness ❤️
Wounds= a person’s debt to you➡️ forgiveness pays that debt ❤️
Yes, forgiveness is hard and you definitely might not like it but it’s a necessary process for your your healing and salvation. Don’t just forgive! Release that person from that debt to you so you can walk happy and free! You obviously can’t forget what the person has done to you even after you forgive BUT YOU have a CHOICE to continue dwelling on that hurt.
Through forgiveness you can keep yourself from seeking revenge or having resentment towards the person. Forgiveness➡️ is understanding through faith that God serves justice better than you do. Most importantly, even if you aren’t right, take responsibility or be the bigger person.
Don’t justify, excuse, or explain what you did but simply let the person know that you are aware that you hurt them. Ask them for forgiveness, this now shifts them into now making a choice whether or not they forgive you. Don’t worry about if the person forgives you or not. God saw you and He forgave you before you even took this course of action. Give the gift of forgiveness so you can regain that relationship (that’s what God would want you to do). However, definitely pray about whether if this person is meant to stay in your life or not.
God has forgiven you for a debt that you could NEVER repay! By God’s grace, you are able to give grace and forgiveness to those who’ve wounded you. 🙏🏽❤️ Grace and forgiveness gives you gives you a powerful opportunity to transform your relationship and heal the in grace in your relationships. I pray this helps you 🙏🏽❤️
