Forgiveness Sets You Free

Day 5 of 7 • This day’s reading

Devotional

Are you not able to forgive someone for doing you wrong? Is it because they don't deserve it?! 

Stop being the victim - you do NOT have to suffer anymore! 

Stop creating those memories in your head - you do NOT have to face this person in unforgiveness anymore! 

Stop making up excuses - you do NOT have to be in this state anymore! 

God forgave us even though we didn't deserve it. He lost his only begotten son through our hands! Because of His promise to us, everything works together for our good. 

Jesus forgave us while he was on the cross. While his executors were celebrating, he asked his Father to forgive them! 

If God and Jesus can do it — you are able to do the same through their power! 

Let's pray:

Dear Lord, Heavenly Father. I thank you with all my heart for your kindness you give to us, even to those who do not deserve it. You show grace to all people, even if they do not love you. 

I thank you for your mercy as you gave us your only begotten son in order to take away our sins. 

I know I can put all my trust in you because you always lead me the right way and prevent me from falling. 

Please help me find the strength to forgive the ones who have wronged me. 

Dear God, show me where I need to go and teach me how to live and think in order to become more Christ-like. With the help of your power, I will be able to set myself free.

In Jesus' Name. Amen. 

As you forgive, you will be forgiven.
