Forgiveness is not an option it is an obligation. It is an extension of who you must be, to live for ME, in this world. You are a spirit having a carnal experience.
To forgive and to accept forgiveness is as necessary as breathing air. When you refuse to do either, it is like shutting up your bowels and refusing to allow the refuse, exit.
You have been hurt, yes. You have been betrayed, yes. You have been lied about, yes. It has and it will happen many more times over. This is the requirement to be a spirit, connected to ME, in a fallen world.
The forgiveness both given and received is the key to rising above the pain. Rising above the fear and rising above the hurt. Your ability to forgive unlocks freedom, for you and for those who have harmed you. MY Word is clear I have come to set the captives free.
“He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.”
