Forgiveness is not About Deserving

Forgiveness is not about deserving but rather unbinding. “Forgive us as we forgive TwoPeopleTalkingthose who trespass against us” is not a request for forgiveness so God won’t be mad at us. It is a request that God free us from sin that stops us short of His glory, free us of the things that cause us to detour or delay or destroy His original intent for us; free us from issues that keep us from getting where we were born to go. —Kathy Gabler


Releasing Others

(Kathy) — As we release others, dead or alive, from what they owe us in apology for pain, hassle, grief or injustice, we are freed up from the debt we have built. Debt erased from our future will change it. Forgiveness is an investment in your future.  “And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.” (Matt.6:12, KJV)

Embrace Forgiveness

Liftinghandssmiling
As the people of God assemble today, may they embrace the forgiveness of God Almighty

and step into new levels of freedom and fulfillment through His mercy and loving-kindness.

“For You, O Lord, are good, and ready to forgive [our trespasses, sending them away, letting them go completely and forever]; and You are abundant in mercy and loving-kindness to all those who call upon You.” (Ps.86:5, Amp)

Forgive And Rest

TwoWalkingTogether
Forgiveness, when wounded, is not based on “deserving” because we don’t want our forgiveness based on deserving!  I will forgive others for being wrong because I want forgiveness when I am wrong.  Matt 6:12, “and forgive us our sins, JUST AS we have forgiven those who have sinned against us.” (TLB) We can then rest in God’s wisdom to handle the matter.  God said vengeance is His, and you can trust Him with it! 

WOUNDS and painful experiences will come, but we can walk out the process of healing and be whole!

Positive Resolve Of Anger

CrutchFreeWe cannot deny we are angry and hurt when someone wounds us; and a desire for revenge is normal, maybe even justifiable.  But neither denial or justifiable revenge is positive resolve of anger.  For example: a husband with a roving eye continually wounds his wife.  She can deny her anger and it will affect her own mind and body eventually.   Or she can feel anything from an inadequate failure to pure rage, (and her feelings are understandable and justifiable).  Forgiveness will probably be the last thing on her mind.  WHY shouldn’t she hurt him in return?  Because His SIN would then CRIPPLE her!  Sin reveals a problem in the sinner – not in those he sins against. Why make His problem her problem?  Whatever other choices she must make in her individual situation, she can ultimately choose to forgive her husband and be released from the cycle of grief and pain.

Investing In Our Future

ChainsBrokenForgiveness is an investment in your future. It is not about staying saved or deserving, it is about investing wisely.  And forgive us our debts AS we forgive our debtors is a declaration that we understand Father’s governing principle and we know our personal responsibility in living it out.  I have to think God was emphasizing a consistent and continuous release that forgiveness brings, a continual unfettering of others to unfetter ourselves from our issues, a continual coming to freedom and deliverance to live as God intended, free to be who we were born to be for our Father’s glory.

Untethered From A Future Dictated By The Past

LookRearviewMirror

 

Mature sons know that walking confidently in the freedom and power of forgiveness only happens “AS” we forgive others and un-tether them from a future dictated by the past. As we release others, dead or alive, from what they owe us in apology for pain, hassle, grief or injustice, we are freed up from the debt we have built.  Debt erased from our future will change it.  (Matt.6:12)
