This is a good one as our election is only days away.
As for me
As for me, I was very once a child.
I held on to wrongs.
I avoided people so that I will not have to forgive them.
But, once one gets married and has children that become a bit harder.
It affects you, it affects your spouse, and the children, as well.
After a while, it starts to affect one’s relationship with God.
Easiest Way to Know
The easiest way to pick up other people’s spirits is how they hold a grudge against you.
Not only do you know them, but you also pick up their spirit.
Their argument against you.
It’s roots, its sources, the deepness of their hurt.
I can just imagine some people’s prayer.
It likely goes God please don’t forgive this person.
Don’t forgive this sin.
Don’t forgive anyone who has ever committed this sin.
It is a mighty prayer; for sure.
But, do you know how deep it really is?
How many people you are cursing with those simple utterances.
Please remember your God is not just a God.
He is your father, as well.
He is long-suffering.
He is gentle and kind.
Glory & Praise
When he is hurt, remind him.
Remind your God of his Glory and his praise
Isaiah 42:8 reads:-
I will not yield my glory or my praise
Especially in the days ahead, God please remind us of the uncommon favor granted a forgiving heart.
Speak to us during the day, remind us at night.
Shake it out of us if need be.
Please walk through our unyielding heart.
Use us to re-institute our siblings.
We are all our own calling.
Embedded in us is a piece, a thread, of each gift.
God is a clay master; he works and molds it differently in each life.
There is someone out there who needs to read and hear this today.
Please, Father, reach that person and let him or her know — you sought them out and now you are contending for their gentle spirit.
Please claim back that soul.
The evil one has been using unforgiveness as a tool for bitterness, legality, and a spirit of religion.
Jesus and the Samaritan Woman
John 4 [ Link ]
“Sir,” the woman said, “I see that You are a prophet.
Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews say that the place where one must worship is in Jerusalem.”
…But a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for the Father is seeking such as these to worship Him.
God is Spirit, and His worshipers must worship Him in spirit and in truth.
…The woman said, “I know that Messiah” (called Christ) “is coming. When He comes, He will explain everything to us.” Jesus answered, “I who speak to you am He“.
Please position we your people.
Line us up, weed out, clean out…be the good shepherd.
