...even when we are justified in our anger and frustration!!! Even when those who have "trespassed against you" is not worthy of forgiveness. They did it again!! So I feel that I am justified in feeling unforgiveness toward them. BUT...
Jesus says, "If you forgive men their trespasses, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses!" (Matthew 6:14-15)
I NEED God's forgiveness. Especially in moments like this, when I feel justified. I need to humble myself under the mighty hand of God and be a doer of His Word. I need to remember that they are just people just like me, and I mess up all the time.
So, right now, I choose to forgive them! I choose to think good thoughts toward them and walk in love.
This is not easy, but with the help of the Holy Spirit, I can do it. My pursuit is too important to me.
"Lord, my prayer is that you would bless them right now. Protect them and keep them in your care. Draw them closer to You so that their soul and spirit would be quenched with Your presence. Amen."
