OUR DAILY MANNA DAILY DEVOTIONAL DECEMBER 19, 2021 (YOU’RE THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN FREE YOURSELF)
TOPIC: YOU’RE THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN FREE YOURSELF
BASIC SCRIPTURE: MATTHEW 18: 21-35
Unforgiveness is a negative baggage that you take up with your hands and that you can only drop with your own hands. Rather than drop it fast and finally, many people hold on to it.
They carry it like backpacks and they fight anyone that tries to admonish them to let go of it. As long as they carry that backpack of unforgiveness, they find it difficult to move forward into the beautiful future that God has for them. They find it hard to hear the voice of God; prayer becomes a difficult, burdensome thing for them.
Fear begins to reign in their hearts. They lose their peace of mind. If any small thing should happen, they begin to panic. And then, they are deceived by the devil into thinking that: one witch somewhere is the cause of their misfortune. No!
Check yourself today. That “WITCH” can be you! Are you carrying any baggage of unforgiveness and strife? Holding on to an offence is as dangerous as a small bike trying to pull a large truck up a steep hill. The bike rider will never move forward! The only direction that is sure for him/her is backwards/down.
Forgive and forget! NOT EASY I KNOW! WAS ONCE IN THAT TRAP ALSO because even people you trust will hurt you the most on this planet! But you must let go or you go down! In fact, forgive people in ADVANCE because they will hurt you always!
Unforgiveness is like a smog that clogs the pipe through which God channels His blessings to you. You will never gain anything by holding on to an offence. It will not add anything to you but sorrow and heart pain. As a phamarcist but now called by God into ministry, I know that lots of diseases and stress-related health problems can be traced to unforgiveness and strife.
For example, if you are being troubled by ulcer, check your heart; do you have anything against anyone? If you do, it is time to let God and let go!
