Unforgiveness


"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1John 1:9

If we are a believer carrying around sin in our life, we are going to be weighed down.

We can't enjoy life event fully and enjoy God's blessings.

Sin  such as jealousy will steal our joy: envy, strife, resentment, bitterness and anger will prevent us from being ass He wants us to be through Him.

 When our attention is not focused on God and we are thinking about that something that is wrong, and eventually can be a hindrance in our walk with him.

Did you know that greed limits our ability to know what God is calling us to do.

An endless pursuit of worldly pleasures  of fame, fortune and wealth will harden our heart towards the simplest pleasures that God gives us each and every day.

Lust greed and immorality deaden the heart as well as our Spirit to such a degree that we can not hear the voice of God.

In other words we become spiritually deaf to His principles set forth in His Word.

Are you constantly finding that you are making one mistake after another?

One can not mix sin and purity.

Choose wisely a for one leads to joy, peace that passes all understanding and security while the other one offers isolation, insecurity, regret, deep sorrow and even death.

"Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?" 2 Corinthians 6:14 NASB

Forgiveness


Fore bearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye." Colossians 3:13

Do you know that God forgives us?

Do you forgive others?

Did you know that when we forgive others that we are not saying that it is right what they did; but that we want to be free from that bondage that is holding us captive.

Did you know that forgiveness is a command?

Did you know that we are not to ignore His commands?

The only way to understand the depth of His love, is to obey Him!

Most the things we struggle with each day has its root in unforgiveness.

Maybe you have hidden anger, frustration an or disappointment that stresses ya out.

Unforgiveness is generally found at the root of these problems.

The lack of forgiveness will leak a poison into your system and it will have a devastating effect on  your body and emotions.

unforgiveness will also affect our prayer life as well.

Unforgiveness is a stumbling block and a distraction to all whom it affects.

God instructs us to obey him in this area of forgiveness.

While He was on the Cross, Jesus prayed,"Father forgive them; they know not what they are doing." Luke 23:34

As we learn to practice this principle we will sense an incredible joy rise up in us, as well as a peace that passes all understanding.

In His way and in His timing God will deal with those who have hurt us.

It is our responsibility to forgive and let go of anything and everything that would prevent us or hinder us from walking in fellowship with Him each day.

"Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love Me, he will keep My Words: and My Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him." John 14:23

Is He your daily bread?


"when thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee. For the commandment is a lamp and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:" Proverbs 6:22-23

Ya can't run a fast face pace for a long time and maintain a close intimate relationship with the Savior!

Jesus even made sure that He that He took time with His heavenly Father.

Jesus earthly ministry was important, but to do His father's will, He could not always be on the go, always moving and rushing around.

Jesus had to be still in His Father's presence.

God will show you what to do and when to do it when we are still before Him looking and listening to Him and for Him.

 "I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way in which thou shalt go; I will guide thee with mine eye." Psalm 32:8
