Letting Go Through Forgiveness

In Matthew 6:12, when Jesus was teaching his disciples what we call “The Lord’s Prayer”, He said, “Forgive us as we forgive others.” He put such emphasis on this idea that two verses later He mentions it again. It was as if He started to walk away but turned around and said, “Listen to what I’m telling you! If you forgive others, your Heavenly Father will forgive you. But if you don’t forgive, you won’t be forgiven.” Think about this – It’s the only part of the prayer he repeated!

It will be the thing you think about over and over and you will lose your peace and cease to function because you are so tied up in knots.

But here’s the key – when somebody has hurt you, don’t curse it, don’t nurse it, and don’t rehearse it. Instead, disperse it and God will reverse it! That means don’t complain about it, don’t think about it over and over and don’t constantly talk about how hurt you are to other people. Instead, disperse it. Give it to God and He will turn the situation around for your good.

Remember, you’ve been forgiven. Walk in that forgiveness and you’ll be free. Nobody will be able to rob you of that freedom! When you’re hurt or offended, give it to God and let Him deal with it, and He will. That’s what brings the miraculous turnaround that you’ve been looking for in your life; your turnaround financially, your turnaround emotionally, your turnaround spiritually, your turnaround in your relationships and in your health. It all begins with forgiveness. Forgiveness is the gateway to your miracle.
