Stop Drinking the Poison of Unforgiveness By Using This Simple 3 Step Process
Each day we get hurt by people.
Our family, friends and loved ones often say words or do things that we just can’t forget. And above all we can’t forgive them no matter how hard we try.
Ever been there?
Many times things happen that become a tattoo on our heart and mind and then we find ourselves in the unending journey of struggling with uneasiness, bitterness, frustration and a lot more. You know why?
Simply because we carry the burden of unforgiveness. So the question is:
How can we get freedom from unforgiveness?
1. Intentionally Choose to Forgive
Don’t wait for the perfect time or the feel good moment to forgive. Because chances are that time won’t come ever. Instead choose to not carry the burden of unforgiveness anymore.
Matthew 6: 12-14 says
“And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors… For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.”
2. Humble Yourself and Seek Holy Spirit’s Guidance
Ask someone and they’ll tell you it’s been years they couldn’t forgive that person.
Acknowledge the fact you can’t forgive others, even yourself in your own strength.
That’s why, humble yourself and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you. He will give you the instructions and the power.
3. Obey What the Holy Spirit Says
It’s definitely tempting to keep living in unforgiveness for another hour, day or year simply because what the Holy Spirit said takes an act of courage.
The Bible says, bless and do not curse. In Greek, to bless means “to speak well of”, therefore, speaking blessings in the lives of those who wronged, betrayed or hurt you.
The point is, no matter what action is needed, obey the Spirit of the Lord because the scripture says that delayed obedience equals disobedience.
