Happy Monday Saints.
2 Cornthians 2:10&11 “ANYONE YOU FORGIVE, I ALSO FORGIVE… IN ORDER THAT SATAN MIGHT NOT OUTWIT US. FOR WE ARE NOT UNAWARE OF HIS SCHEMES.”
In our homes and our churches, we should always be encouraging FORGIVENESS when people have been offended.
The devil loves discord. He loves it when Christians are caught up in strife, bitterness, and unforgiveness. Jesus prayed that we would all BE ONE and our enemy would like nothing more than to see us do the complete opposite.
The devil has outwitted many and deceived them into thinking that their unforgiveness is justified.
He always wants us to hang on to our bitterness and resentment just a little bit longer. He wants us to stew in our bitterness long enough to result in us inflicting any ill intentions upon others.
Unforgiveness is blinding. It prevents us from seeing resolutions and any hope of reconciliation and restoration.
The longer we hang on to any resentment, the more time we give the enemy to outwit us and take advantage of us.
He is a liar and a schemer. Don’t let him trick you into remaining hardhearted and bitter towards others.
The time to let it go and forgive is NOW.
When it comes to forgiveness, the only time that is better than the present is in the past, the moment you were offended. But because you can’t go back in time, the next best time is NOW.
Don’t let Satan have any more satisfaction from the division he has caused. As far as it is possible with you, live peaceably with all others. Let God use you to bring reconciliation, peace, and harmony to others this week.
Have an awesome one. God bless and lots’a love,
