This forgiveness takes a Supernatural power. It takes more than human will power to get it's full benefit. It's not about our works of righteousness but it's about His Grace. For example; the 10 Commandments of God are perfect but as Bible verses tell us, if you fail in even one point you are guilty of all.
Hard as you may try to keep the laws of God, you will always fail in some point. God Is Holy and Righteous, there is no turning in Him. He Must require Absolute perfection. That's why Jesus had to come. That's why the law points to Jesus. The Law screams, 'Look to Jesus to keep the Law'. He is the only One who can save us for He is the only One who never broke the law.
Jesus,' The perfect law keeper', died in our place for our sins our failures in order to be able to lawfully give us His
perfect righteousness as a free gift. He offers to exchanged His perfectness for our lawless deeds. We don't deserve this gift. This is unmerited favor- the Grace of God.
God gives us a command to forgive. This is a spiritual law and the will of God. But when you are in so much pain how can you forgive those who have hurt you? But your failure to forgive is not a deterrent for God. God's Grace is there for us still. Just as Jesus kept the 10 Commandments perfect for us, so to can Jesus fulfill this command to forgive for you and in you. By Grace you are saved.
All you have to do is be willing to yield to God's will and let Jesus the Great Forgiver do the work in you. Just Yield to Him.
a parent, when your child is hurt, all you can think of is, how can I
stop my child's pain! Picture a little child that gets a big painful
sliver, and runs to their Father for help. If that child would just sit
still and trust their parent with the tweezers to get that thing out-
the child could be free of the pain. Little does the child know that
their Father is a skilled Surgeon.
Our Father God
wants to remove the Pain in you. Listen with your spiritual ears and
understand with your spirit. The answer is always the same, the answer
points to Jesus. He is the only One who can save us. Discern between our
works and the work of God in us.
Through our own works, you can have head knowledge. You can decide to do the will of God and that is mental assent. Some may say in their heart through clenched teeth," I will forgive them, but I will never forget it". You will not receive the full benefit of forgiveness this way. Every time you think of the person or situation the Emotional Pain will still be there.
Your necessary starting point; to will to do Gods will, (even that Jesus does in you) but there is much more to come...
All of us have been hurt many times in this life. Negative emotions can be our friends, they tell us when there is something wrong. But they must be dealt with or they can affect your emotional health.
Daily we can face negative emotions for one reason or another. You can pickup offense in any given moment of the day. It can be as simple as someone saying an unkind word to you or someone pulling out in traffic in front of you. It also can be some horrible abuse that severely touches your whole life.
Severe abuse can be mixed with extreme fear, anger and hatred that humans just can't overcome alone. It can be overwhelming. Some have been abused so badly that they believe they can never fully get over it. They can suffer for years after the abuse and there seems to be no hope for them to ever be completely healed. Whether we face daily problems of stress or horrible trauma in our life, Jesus will overcome it for us.
That's good news for you, there is hope in Christ. Hope, Bible hope, is earnest expectation of good. God is good and He's good all the time. No matter what the enemy does to you God has the answer. There is nothing too hard for God. He loves you and He died that you might be free! Every answer points to Jesus.
Your human spirit is not the only spirit in your body. You have invited the Spirit of the living God to dwell inside of you. After you received Jesus as Savior, He said he would never leave you nor forsake you. No matter what you have done or gone through, God's Word is true. It doesn't depend on you but it depends on His Covenant Promise. He is the God that cannot lie. He is there with you right now and is eager to do the work in you.
The Spirit of Jesus dwells in your heart. As you study what the English Bible calls...... 'your heart', you will find the words used in the Greek and Hebrew are referring to your belly or your gut. It is where the seat of your emotions are.
Have you ever had a gut feeling?... Pay attention to them, could be the Spirit of God trying to speak to you. God speaks in a still small voice. It's subtle, but Don't disregard that. Pay attention and you will hear God speaking to you from your gut.
Doctors and scientists are finding that there is a connection between the gut and your brain. It has to do with the enteric nervous system or the 'second brain' and embryonic development. Science is proving the Bible correct again. All that aside, you just need to know that God dwells in you. And He speaks to you from your gut, from the inside out, most of the time.
Jesus stands at the door of your heart and knocks. Open the door of your emotions to Christ within.
Become aware of His presence. Close your eyes and focus on the deepest part of the inside of you. Focus on Him and listen for Him to speak to you. Christ in you will bring you the victory, He is the hope of glory! Let this revelation be heart knowledge, let it be experienced and it will convict your head knowledge.
The Bible tells us to let the peace of God rule in us. Jesus is the Prince of peace. You can tap in to the peace of God as you meditate on Him. Peace can be felt in your gut. Peace can lead you through decisions. The Prince of peace can keep you in peace even in hostile environments.
Within our soul there is our mind will and emotions. As powerful as thoughts are they are not as powerful as the emotions that we feel. That's why we need to open up our emotions to the Christ within us. For every thought there is a corresponding emotion that is attached to it. That's why when we think about a certain person that has hurt us, situation or trauma that we went through, we can actually feel the pain of that moment.
God's will is for you to be healed and for you to be healed without scars. He wants you to have no pain when you remember any bad situation. Jesus is the only one that can take away that kind of pain. Jesus wants to replace the pain with his peace. He wants you to walk in peace on a daily basis. This is possible. It's like a detoxing for your soul. When you trust Him and belief Him, the mechanics of how to be healed is amazingly simple.
Do you remember how simple it was when you received Jesus as your Lord and Savior? You just believed and it happened instantly. Confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart and you shall be saved. Simple. God is not, complicated. He is accessible to all of His children. Believe in your heart, believe from your gut and you shall be saved.
There is no respecter of persons with Him. You don't have to be highly educated to hear His voice, does a baby have to be educated in order to recognize the mother's voice?
Luke 6:37 Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
Phil 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure. KJV
Jesus said, "believe only" ....and He will do the rest. Jesus is the one who gave us the gift of forgiveness from the cross... Luke 23:34 Then Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do."NKJV.
Forgiveness is a person, it is Jesus the great forgiver. Yield to Him Now and behold the Grace of God.
Experience God in this process...
Think about a person or situation that has hurt you.
Let God lead you. What is the first thing that comes to your mind?
Allow yourself to feel the emotion. Don't be afraid of the pain....
What is it that you are feeling? Focus on the emotion. Name it,
Is it fear, emptiness or rejection or Whatever it is,... think about it for a moment. Give yourself some time. Don't hide from the pain, Jesus can
only take away that which you are willing to give to Him not what you hide.
You can listen for Him in case He would speak to you about the situation or Just wait. He will take the pain and replace it with His peace. IT'S SUPERNATURAL
It is God that does the work in you SUPERNATURALLY.
This can happen quite quickly. Wait for it by faith, it will come every time. When it comes you will know it, all the pain, will be gone.
Rejoice with Him, Hallelujah!! The Peace that is beyond understanding.
Let God touch you Spirit to spirit. Experience God!
You can do this simple process over and over again for as many things that come to your mind. You can use this gift of forgiveness on a daily basis with all of the stress that you go through and you can walk in peace daily.
Become aware of any negative emotions that you feel, they are warning signs to you. They tell you who is ruling. If peace is not ruling you have a negative emotion, you know it, and you can correct it by forgiveness.
When you continually practice forgiveness it will come to the place where you will catch your unforgiving attitudes before you get angry, before you pick up offense. You will find yourself stopping before you give into it and it becomes sin that separates you from God and His Peace.
You will begin to deal with it as a temptation and choose to just let it go. At this point you will Walk continually in God's Peace for long periods of time. Your fellowship with God will grow Strong. You will have fellowship with God on a daily basis.
We serve an awesome God who cares deeply about every situation in our life. His will for you is Shalom, that is complete peace, nothing missing and nothing broken and so much more.
Gods will is to heal you completely and have unbroken fellowship and Communion with Him.
3 John 2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul (mind, will,and emotions) prospereth. KJV
