THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
FORGIVENESS IS A CHOICE AND IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE PERSON THAT HURT YOU
God never promised that life would always be fair. In fact, He warns us of just the opposite! People are NOT perfect; we all make mistakes and bad decisions. You may have been hurt by others in the past, but what’s most important is how you CHOOSE to deal with that hurt.
When you harbor hurts and offenses, it keeps you stuck in the past. It only causes harm in your life. If you want to move forward in JOY and PEACE, you have to choose FORGIVENESS.
Yes, forgiveness is a CHOICE, and it has nothing to do with the person who hurt you. FORGIVENESS is the choice to hand your hurts over to God and let HIM make up the difference. When we choose to extend forgiveness, that’s when we choose to receive HIS forgiveness! Today, choose God’s way, choose forgiveness, and choose to move forward in the BLESSING and VICTORY He has prepared for YOU!
“But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your transgressions.”
Mark 11:26, NASB
