Today and for the next couple of days we will learn how to overcome unforgiveness in our lives.
Unforgiveness is a powerful blessing blocker and keeps you away from God; this will lead you straight to hell. Let’s see how to forgive a person through faith which is how it’s done. Forgiveness does not come through emotions or feeling but rather through faith.
Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him. And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.
My friend, this is what God is saying to you today that if you are having trouble forgiving others you will have to draw from your faith. You can forgive any person through faith, Jesus said offenses will surely come. Offences are nothing but you negative response to a situation or comment.
Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
Offences will surely come but you must forgive, therefore Jesus said,if someone comes against you, you must forgive him 70 times 7 times. Forget about even 7 times if someone comes against you once, how long does that hurt remain? Jesus talks about forgiving people, the first things the apostles said was the Word is too difficult to practise and asked Jesus to give them more faith.
