Good morning brothers and sisters. We have talked about this before. I know that forgiveness is easier said than done. I know that I struggle with it. I am one to forgive but then you always have that one that does it again. And the process starts all over. But I know that I have to do the process all over because I can't, no, I won't allow bitterness and hate to enter into my heart. My Lord and Savior forgives me time and time again, so too must I follow suit. This morning because I was dealing with this very thing, not really hate but bitterness and frustration, I opened my Bible to Psalm 32:1-2. 1-Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. 2- Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit. See it is that last word that gets us- deceit. When we harbor the things that Jesus can fix, we harbor deceit. I just can't do that. He forgives me of so much. I must extend that same forgiveness. And when I hand it over to Jesus, my heart is full of His joy and I am able to say and do Psalm 34;1-3. 1-I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2- My soul shall make its boast in the Lord; the humble shall hear of it and be glad. 3- Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together. Lay what needs forgiven at the feet of Jesus. While you are laying it down, stay down and humble ourselves in prayer. And you notice when we do, we will have the joy of the Lord and others will see it. Repent, refresh, revive. Rise up child of God, rise up!
