I have been forgiven!
Have you been forgiven?
When we ask God to forgive...HE does!!!
HE places ALL of our sins, ALL of them, into the sea of no more remembrance!
As far as the east is from the west! Never to be remembered against you, and I, ever again!
Why is it then, that we have such a hard time forgiving ourselves?
Because we have some enemies! Yes, we do!
The devil, people, and ourselves.
First, The devil is the enemy of our soul, he is the accuser! He never takes a rest. He is constantly trying to make you relive your past. Remember, He is walking about, AS A ROARING LION seeking whom he may devour.
The Key word here is, AS!
It is time, TODAY, to put him in his rightful place, where he belongs... Under our feet!
Secondly, we have people. Some are family, some are close friends, some are acquaintances and then we have the religious crowd. A people who "think" God came down from HIS SEAT and changed places with them. These know-it-all folks, who think they have everything figured out. They have set themselves up as the jury, the judge and the executioner!
SITTING IN JUDGEMENT...
Pointing their hypocritical, religious finger at anyone who goes against their beliefs.
Notice I said, "their beliefs." Most of the time they go by their own experience and DO NOT have a clue about the details of your situation, anyway!
Never caring enough to find out what the Word of GOD says about it, nor do they apply Biblical principals in finding a solution.
The type of execution they use is their tongue! What a POWERFUL, but small WEAPON it is!
In my opinion, it would seem to me that it would be more humane to take a gun or a knife and kill them once, than to continually use your tongue to murder that person over and over again!
Think about this...The tongue, has brought down many people, crushing them, until they would have been better off dead.. Insead of trying to repair themselves after harsh words, and lies, were spoken in the spirit of condemnation, against them. Even if you know what is being said, is the truth, it is WRONG for it to be repeated. This is another way to condemn and wound someone, also, it is called GOSSIP!
Oh, be careful little lips, what you say!
Yes, these self righteous people will bring up your dead and buried stuff, as long as you allow them to do so! IF YOU continue to allow them, they WILL DO IT! They will remind you of ALL of your PAST mistakes and failures. You can stop it! Tell them that your past is just that! Your past! Because, Thank you Jesus, IT IS UNDER THE BLOOD!
"DOES ANYONE HAVE A MIRROR?" Take a long look at yourself...before you go saying something about someone else!
Hmmmm......Maybe, we should carry our own bag of pebbles, rocks, and stones, to hand out to our accusers...because, we know they are talking, anyway!
ACCUSERS...Do not forget where GOD has brought you from! You may just find yourself walking in the person's shoes...you know, the one you are slicing through and murdering with your sharp tongue. The Word describes "the tongue" as a small member, but it is full of deadly poison! No matter the size of your words, they all hurt!
Thirdly, we are our worst enemy. We feel that we have done too many things that are unpardonable. We believe that we cannot be forgiven. We hold ourselves captive to the condemnation our old way of life. Remember this, ALL of us have a past! ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of GOD.
Do you remember these words? JESUS said, "Neither do I condemn thee!"
"You who are without sin, you be the first one, to throw your stone!"
IF you are a born again, blood bought Christian, then as children of God, being Christ-like, just give them the words of Jesus! Don't try to justify yourself about anything...you do not owe an explaination, if you have been forgiven!
Because, in their courtroom, anything you say, can and will be used against you!
Do you remember these words? Jesus said them!
JESUS SAID, "WHERE ARE YOUR ACCUSERS?"
The woman said, "NO MAN, LORD."
JESUS SAID, "NEITHER DO I CONDEMN YOU, GO AND SIN NO MORE!"
There is NOW NO CONDEMNATION...TO A BLOOD BOUGHT CHILD OF THE MOST HIGH GOD!
Stop listening to the enemy he is a liar!
Stop listening to people!
Remind yourself, GOD LOVES YOU!
THE BLOOD OF JESUS COVERS YOU!
YOU ARE FORGIVEN!
YOU ARE A NEW CREATION, IN HIM!
Get in the Word of GOD, all of the answers are there! Find out to WHOM it is, you belong!
Then you will not have any questions, as to who you are in Christ Jesus!
Do it today!
Forgive yourself and move forward!
Much Love, DeVonne
