Choose Forgiveness


Friday, 19th February 2021

Mathew 18:21-22 – Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy times seven.

Forgive your brother. Forgive your sister. Forgive those who have come up against you. Forgive your enemies. Forgive those who have set themselves against you. Forgive those who have spoken against you.

Clear your heart. Clear your mind. Clear your thoughts. Forgive those who have intentionally set themselves to sabotage your destiny. Jesus Christ forgave those who were crucifying Him. Though your enemies may come to crucify your flesh, choose to surrender to Christ and forgive those who have come up against you.

Let it go. Whatever “it” is, let it go. Choose to let the past go. Choose to let the pain of the past go. Choose to forgive and move forward. Choose to surrender to Christ. Let your Heart reflect the merciful and compassionate Heart of God.

Forgiveness is a choice. Forgiveness is intentional. It’s important to forgive those who have offended you. Offense corrupts the character and soil of your heart. It’s your choice — you can choose to stay in a place of bondage or you can choose to forgive and free your heart from the chains of the past.

Forgive those who have come against you. Forgive your enemies. Forgive those who have abandoned you. Forgive those who have forsaken you. Forgive quickly, freely, and often.

Mercy and forgiveness are brothers. Choose to show mercy when others have wronged you. Choose to show grace to those who have offended you. Choose to forgive and let the past go. Don’t let the chains and yokes of the past taint the soil of your heart. Holding on to past trespasses will ruin your harvest. Choose to show mercy and allow God to lead your heart.

Let mercy reign richly in the ground of your home. Let love reign richly in the ground of your family. Let grace reign richly in every aspect of your life. Let mercy overflow in how you choose to handle business. Let mercy flow in how you handle the heart of others. It’s your choice. Choose to sow mercy.
