Forgive by Faith

Forgive Matthew 18:21-22

 

Have you ever wondered how to actually and practically apply the Word of God to your life??

I mean really, how do we walk by faith?

Let me give you an example the Lord showed me many years ago: The opportunity to forgive never comes without a prior opportunity to take offence!

Yes, that’s right!! We wouldn’t ever have to forgive anybody if people would just never irritate us!!! And we all know that will never happen right?? People are people and sometimes…well, sometimes we just do plain, dumb stuff that is ‘unforgivable’ right?

Wrong!

It’s right after your best friend, spouse, sibling or coworker does that one thing that you just can’t understand…like really, why would anyone be so ignorant…that is when you take the Word of God and apply it to that situation!!

You walk by faith and not by sight…or by how you feel! You forgive by faith!! You make a determined decision to forgive, love, bless and pray for the offending party and from that moment on you continually choose to walk out forgiveness…by faith!! Every time you think about it, you just say: “no, I’ve forgiven ____________ I don’t keep a record of wrong! They are forgiven and I walk in love and love does not remember a suffered wrong!”

Will that fall on you like ripe cherries off a tree? Not likely, but you can do it because God is inside you, and with Him ALL things are possible!!!

Be encouraged!! Apply the word to your life, it will produce fruit!

We love you and are standing with you!!

Jesus is Lord!

 

Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how may times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?
Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy {x} seven times.”
~ Matthew 18:21-22(NIV)
