TREM Devotional 9 November 2021 Daily Devotional By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Be Ready To Forgive

 

TOPIC: Be Ready To Forgive 


“And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.” Mark 11:25 KJV


It is very essential for us as believers to walk in love and be ready to forgive. It helps us to stand strong in the Lord. How can one ever say he is a believer and he is filled with bitterness, envy, strife and unforgiveness? Some even make bold to say in their heart, “I will never forgive him or her.” Just imagine if the Lord decides not to forgive you, where will you be? The problem is that you have not sat down to consider how much you were forgiven. If you do, then you will not sit in the judgment corner.


The Word of God declares that in Christ “…we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins” (Colossians 1:14 KJV). If God forgave us, why are you refusing to forgive your husband, your wife, your children, your brother or sister? Why will you as a child not forgive your parents?


Whether you like it or not, wherever there are two or three people, there will always be issues. Jesus had issues with His disciples. There will always be issues but what makes the difference is our relationship with Christ. When Jesus is in the center of our lives and when we pass our relationship through Him, then it will positively affect the person you are not relating well with. So, let Jesus be the center of the reconciliation.


Unforgiveness is a blessing blocker! Walking in hatred is a blessing blocker and more often than not, you block your own blessing when you don’t forgive. The person you refuse to forgive is progressing and you are saying to yourself, “despite all I am doing to this person, he is still succeeding.” Child of God, life is too short to hold on to things that you should release. Let it go so that what God has ordained in your life will be deposited in your life.
