Exercising Your Power To Forgive
"You have the ability, you have the power to forgive. Exercise it. It’s in your ability, in your power. Maximize that moment, forgive that person, so you can live a life worthy of a calling, worthy of your purpose, to live a great life."
Luke 6:37 (NKJV) “Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
Forgive: stop feeling angry or resentful toward (someone) for an offense, flaw, or mistake.
The year was 1983 and as a young boy is beginning to enjoy life and friendship, something was suddenly taken from him and added into his life at the same time. The day that changed this young boys life forever was the befriending of a neighborhood teenager. This teenager took advantage of the child like heart of a young boy that was 7, by using the naivety of what friends do together and how they play. This teenage boy cohearsed this young boy to play hide and seek under a house, because all houses had a space where the house sat above ground and a little door gave you access to the pipes and anything under the home. I tell you hide and go seek led to a molestation that wasn’t warranted, and repeated for a time after that. That young boy was myself.
I tell you this from firsthand knowledge and can testify to the power that forgiveness has for you above all. You have been given great power to direct much of your life, whether its with forgiveness, wealth, health, or elite relationships. Your creator God placed inside of you the ability to be guided, instructed and comforted at every corner.
Wayne Dyer- Forgiveness is really an act of letting go, releasing the anger, the hatred, the bitterness, the thoughts of revenge that we have been carrying around. We can do this letting go without even encountering the person we want to forgive.
Much of society blames external forces or people for their short comings or failures. Listen, I fell victim to this many times over my life. It can creep up on you at any moment and before you realize what pity soup you are in you smell of it. In society, there is a disease that is running rampant in our world , where responsibility for your own actions is not the majority but the minority. We can easily point a finger and forget the other there digits are pointing back at us.
80% of Americans are in the self pity mode and not in the business of exercising the tremendous power and gift they have. Allow me to introduce you to the power inside of you to unleash major change and transformation in your life and others positively. Forgive! It can be an instantaneous thing or it can be a process, whatever the journey, it is well worth it simply for you.
Jesus had the power to forgive sins because he was instructed to, Jesus also instructed us to forgive for our benefit and the benefit of others.
Be the channel to impact change for good , not the catalyst to perpetuate destruction. Unleash your Power!
Pastor Milton, II
The King Loves You
Good morning family,
However, the Lord your God would not listen to Balaam but turned the curse into a blessing for you, because the Lord your God loves you.Do not seek a treaty of friendship with them as long as you live. - Deuteronomy 23:5-6 NIV
People will wish the worst, but God doesn’t listen to people with little faith. Look at Deuteronomy 23:5. God turns curses into blessings! So be happy when people hate you for doing good, because God is Good, and He has the last word!
People may tell you how your dreams aren’t going to come to pass and how you don’t have the training. They can speak defeat all day long. But, here’s the key, they are powerless to change the blessing on your life. #THANKYOUJESUS!!
