How Do We Forgive? - Spiritual Growth Encouragement Series


Bible Verse: Romans 12:17-21
“Never pay back evil with more evil. Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honorable. Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone. Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, ‘I will take revenge; I will pay them back,’ says the LORD. Instead, ‘If your enemies are hungry, feed them. If they are thirsty, give them something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals of shame on their heads.’ Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good.”

Luke 23:34
“Forgive them, for they know not what they do.”

Reflect and Respond: How do today's verses speak to you about forgiveness? Even about forgiving someone who clearly wronged you?

Prayer: Father, I want to love like You and forgive like You, but I need Your help. Please empower me to make the step to forgive today. I leave vengeance in Your hands. I choose to forgive and live in peace with You. Help me to do this daily. Amen.

Dear Lord,
It seems to me that, in my life, all I had in my life were enemies. I've never had friends in my life, nor did I ever have comfort in my life. Lord, help me with this; I can't take any more trauma. I pray this in Jesus name. Amen!

I was robbed of all my jewelry and half my household goods by so called friends which hurt deeply when my back was broken and I was in the recovery hospital. It took awhile but God finally gave me the grace to forgive. I am not bothered by it anymore. But I do use it to testify of Gods wonderful love for me and His mighty power to heal us.
I love Jesus, I don’t want to miss Heaven because of being so full of my hurt that I won’t forgive. God is good and things decay but people have eternal souls.

Lord, help me have a forgiving spirit and nature. I used to have this and now it is lost. Life and people have a let me down so much to the point where I am numb. I hold onto my hurt, disappointment and pain. Help me release it and trust you are with me. I want to forgive. I want to be healed from this sin of unforgiveness. I want to be healed from my bitterness. I want to feel your peace inside every part of my being. Lord, thank you for Your forgiveness. In Jesus name, Amen.
