“How often should I forgive someone who comes against me?” (Mt. 18:21)
Is forgiveness the key to healing?
When someone comes against you, it’s natural to pause or be taken aback. The crushing pain or disappointment won’t last forever.
Even if you step back into the pain or have been in this setting before, make a decision to move beyond the past; finding freedom from bondage of self. Ask yourself, “Do I want 70×7 the anguish or 70×7 the blessings?”
Your mind is like a car, it gets stuck in reverse (thoughts). It’s time to clean out the cobwebs. Are you ready?
Hold on with the right hand of God; gently switch the gear shift from reverse to drive finding the forgiveness you seek. Watch it enter your heart.
In place of anguish flows a river of healing.
“No, not seven times,” Jesus replied, “but seventy times seven! “(Mt. 18:22)
