HOLDING ONTO UNFORGIVENESS, DESTROYS YOU, NOT THEM.
Definition of Unforgiveness:
Holding a grudge against someone who has offended you.
When I see post of people justifying #unforgiveness it saddens me greatly. I see anger, hurt, resentment and bitterness all working against the simple act of #forgiveness.
In the beginning of my stand for personal healing, marriage & family restoration, no one asked me to forgive them for what part they may have played in the breakdown of my personal relationship with Christ, then marriage, family and eventually ministry. My husband, children and parents certainly thought they had done NOTHING WRONG. Yet, in my choosing to forgive them before the Father, as Christ did, our example, “FORGIVE THEM FATHER, THEY #KNOW#NOT WHAT THEY DO”, I began to break FREE. Free to love myself again. In time each lost relationship has or is being restored.
WHY? Because, when we choose to focus on the grace and mercy of God (that we did not deserve), we are able to show others that same love of mercy. This does not mean you allow others to destroy you through their actions, deeds and words (or lack thereof), but what it does mean is you choose to love yourself more than choosing to find every reason and bible verse (taken out of context) not to forgive and begin pressing through FOR YOUR HEALING.
Matthew 18:33, “Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellow-servant, even as I had pity on thee?”
Chain Breakers we only have one life to honor God with…
God did not place us here to be unhappy…
Living our lives without happiness is #dishonoring GOD.
Our happiness was never intended to come from others. God is the only real source of happiness. If we are unhappy, it’s because WE are not choosing to keep our eyes stayed on Thee. (ISAIAH 26:3)
ISAIAH 26:3 (KJV) says, “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”
“Thou = “GOD
wilt = WILL
keep = CONTINUOUSLY KEEP
him = _________ (YOUR NAME)
in perfect = SUPERNATURALLY IN
peace = THE PEACE OF JESUS,
whose = WHEN
mind = __________’s MIND
is stayed = IS CONSTANTLY THINKING
on thee: = ON GOD:
because = ___________ DOES THIS BECAUSE
he = ____________
trusteth = TRUST
in thee.” = GOD!!!”
Do you want to die an unhappy person waiting on someone else to make you happy or for them to find happiness themselves? It is not your cross to bear to “make” another happy. True happiness only comes from God. Always putting the needs of another above your own needs out of fear is idolatry (thoughts of: they might leave you or what will they do without me or what if this or that happens)… YOU ARE NOT THEIR GOD and are in turn attempting to play god (witchcraft).
What will your response be when God asks you why did you not enjoy your life? How sad it will be to respond, “Well God, I was waiting on my spouse, my child, my parent to be happy, rather than being happy in what Jesus accomplished for me on the cross.”
What if these same people may be watching and waiting on you to take the next step of faith… to trust God and choose to be happy regardless of some else’s choice? What if your fears are keeping others from moving forward?
If you would just #CHOOSE GOD, the rest will line up… CHOOSE YOU THIS DAY WHOM YOU WILL SERVE… Drawing healthy boundaries, for yourself is not being selfish, it is being WISE.
I’ll tell you why, because Jesus said, “THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE!!!”
What truths are we missing?
It would seem to be an identity issue… knowing WHOSE YOU ARE and WHO YOU ARE? Even our Lord and Savior dealt with this issue when questioned by some Jewish Leaders according to John 8:32 (KJV) which reads… “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”, but if you read it again in the TPT (The Passion Translation) it reads like this… “For if you embrace the truth, it will release #more#freedom
More Freedom… That tells me that things have been kept hidden by those that stand to loose their grip on society.
I will be sharing more in the near future… I just want you to think about this. Who told you Jesus (Yeshua) was white? Who would stand to loose in the acknowledging Yeshua as a black man?
We have come into a new season of #TRANSFORMATION, that will bring forth #REFORMATION. According to Romans 12:2 we are told (TPT) … Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you; but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think.
Who is needing reformation? And Why???
Before ascending into heaven Jesus gave the disciples a new commandment. John 13:34 (TPT) 34 “So I give you now a new commandment: Love each other just as much as I have loved you. 35 For when you demonstrate the same love I have for you by loving one another, everyone will know that you’re my true followers.”
Why did Jesus emphatically want to get this point across to us, to the point he made another commandment? He knew that hatred for others would hold us back from His return.
Take a look at Ephesians 2, and then specifically vs 14-15 (TPT) 14 Our reconciling “Peace” is Jesus! He has made Jew and non-Jew one is Christ. By dying as our sacrifice, he has broken down every wall of prejudice that separated us and has now made us equal through our union with Christ. 15 Ethnic hatred has been dissolved by the crucifixion of his precious body on the cross. The legal code that stood condemning every one of us has now been repealed by his command. His triune essence has made peace between us by starting over – forming ONE NEW MAN, Jews and non-Jews fused together!
If you have been walking out the promises of God and suddenly find you have come under an attack, that you know you have overcome in the Lord, in times past. Pay it no mind!!! The enemy KNOWS that THE BLESSING IS ON IT’S WAY it is an all out war, an attempt to distract and shut you down. IT IS UP TO YOU TO STAY FOCUSED. DO NOT LET HIM GAIN GROUND!
The people God has aligned you with, are your circle of influence to help you up when the attacks come. Do not turn inward!!! Do not accept defeat, because you have seen this path before!!! THESE ARE LIES!!! If you need to have a good cry, let it out, but then pull up your boot straps and get back up. Press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Phil.3:14. GODs GOT THIS!!! Stand your ground, Stay in Position of Praise, Stay in Alignment with His Heart and the Promises HE has spoken to YOU!!!
#VICTORY is Your’s if you DO NOT FALTER!!! You do this by staying in Praise, Worship, Meditating on THE WORD OF GOD, feeding your spirit man with scriptural affirmations, choosing to stay in the fight!!!
The enemy knows your weaknesses, be aware of his tactics they don’t change (same old lies). GREATER IS HE (JESUS) THAT IS IN YOU, THAN he (satan) that is coming against you!!! He only attacks what he is fearful of. DO NOT GIVE IN, REGARDLESS OF WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE!!!!!
Good Morning/ Afternoon/ Evening!!! May the Peace of Jesus, that pass ALL understanding, rule and reign in you every day!!!
I realize that many have been without loved ones through the past couple of “holidays” and I sense this has caused some to be downcast in their hearts and minds. This is why I keep posting about holidays on my wall and pages.
Holidays seem to bring out the best in us when we are happy or when “we” feel we are where we should be in life. When things aren’t well financially/ physically speaking or when our relationships aren’t where’ they should be, we tend to allow our emotions to run us. I have seen many post sharing “up and down” emotions and as believer’s, we must keep our emotions in check. Our response is showing the enemy that someone else’s lack of care or concern for us is more important that what Christ says about US. We are placing higher expectations on others, that only Christ can fulfill. In allowing this, our reaction is accepting and claiming defeat.
Rise Up Brothers & Sisters!!! Who is your King? What does Christ say about you? What has he promised to fulfill? Lean on Him by faith, knowing that even though we may not have our loved ones beside us, WE STILL HAVE FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT IN US!!! Jesus deserves undivided attention EVERYDAY way more than ANYONE in our lives.
It’s a choice, to understand that the only person I need on so-called “special” days is Father God ‘I AM’, Christ Jesus and Holy Spirit (consider that for many 3 would be a lot of people). I believe that when we truly are fulfilled in Him alone, the breakthrough is able to come forth. #Chains#Break in the #Presence of #God through #Relationship!
