Beloved, how are doing today in the department of godly love? Pretty well I suppose, glory be to God. did I mentioned to you yesterday that it might easy for you to do, that it is not what the natural man (flesh) may want to do but remember that every impossibility is made possible in Christ Jesus.

Paul while writing to the Thessalonians said that he may not dwell so much on it because from the report reaching him through Timothy said they are doing well in brotherly love because why they desiring to go back to them to supply what may be lacking in their faith satan hindered them, they prayed to God and He made their love to increase and overflow for each other (1Thess 3:12). And God did just that (1 Thess 4:9-10). So he urge them to do more and more. Jesus also told His disciple except they were are this little children, they shall not enter into the kingdom of God (Matt 18:3-4).

Love is humbling, 1 Cor 13 confirms it. It also assumes the best as we will also discover in today’s teaching. Praise God.

Therefore we urge you to as you pray today, ask God to help you especially in those areas you are finding difficult He will answer you. If God helped a whole city to love one another, He will surely do same to you if you asked from Him.

So as you pray, lift up your voice unto heaven and make most of every opportunity to receive the gift of love from God our Maker. Let’s read more from the message below:

               

[Love] bears all things, believes all things,

hopes all things, endures all things.—1 Corinthians 13:7

Love has no limits. Love never says, “You’ve gone too far. I can’t love you now.” “All things” means everything is included. Christlike love leaves no doubt in the mind of another that you will continue to love steadfastly. Do those close to you know that they can fail and do foolish things, yet you will not falter in your love for them? Are others assured that, even when they hurt you, you still love them, holding nothing against them?

Love assumes the best about others. If someone inadvertently offends you, you choose to believe the offense was unintentional. If someone seeks to harm you, you “bear all things,” forgiving unconditionally. If a positive light can be shed on a difficult encounter, you grasp it. If someone continually provokes you, you “endure all things.” You never lose hope in the ones you love. You practice the same unconditional love toward others that Christ gives to you.

Paul said that he was nothing if he had the faith to move mountains, the tongue of an angel, and the gift of prophecy to understand all mysteries, yet did not have God’s love. It is unacceptable to say, “Well, I just can’t love people that way!” When God loves people through you, this is the only kind of love He has! Read 1 Corinthians 13 with gratitude that God has already expressed this complete and selfless love to you. Pray and ask Him to express it through you now, to others.

Beloved, what am about to share with you was an article on “forgiveness” given to me by a dear friend. Pay great attention as your read and you will be bless at the end.

“If you feel stuck in any area of your life it could very well be due to a lack of forgiveness. Perhaps you are having trouble forgiving someone else or yourself. Holding on to past memories or “stories” is guarantees to tie up your energy and block your ability to attract what you want.

If you think about it, when you choose to forgive someone. It is nothing more than an ego trip. When you say “I forgive you” what you are really saying is you have some sort of hold over them. By saying “I forgive you,” you decree that you are pronouncing them free of your resentment. That isn’t forgiveness. That’s is an ego trip.

There is nothing to forgive. What we call forgiveness is simply letting go. It is not placing judgment on other people or yourself. When you are truly conscious you realize that nothing “bad” or “wrong” happened. You may judge it as “bad” or wrong” but from the view of ALL THAT IS what occurred is simply what occurred. It’s over. It’s done. It’s history.

Because we believe something happened, we still think of ourselves as being victimized no matter how much we try to forgive. So we are caught up between two conflicting energies and this creates a new reality loop.  One is to condemn and blame and the other is to forgive. This is why we struggle with forgiveness.

However, when we truly conscious we realize nothing “bad”, “negative” or “evil” happened at al. in fact what happened didn’t append TO you but FOR you. It happened to help you to waken and grow. It was part of your life lesson to bring you to where you are right now and to allow you to let go of your “story” of victimization.

So if you are struck in any area of your life, take a look at your unwillingness to forgive yourself or others and just let it go! Realize there is nothing to forgive. You just have to release it and move on.” (The end).

I believe someone is blessed by reading this piece above. Now you have to pray that God should help you to let go of any hurt might have suffered and may be you are still in it. If you read the passage above on love assumes the best, you will truly agree with this writer that truly there is nothing to forgive afterall.

So let us therefore forgive to be forgiven:

And forgive us our debts,

as we also have forgiven our debtors.—Matthew 6:12

Few things are more precious to receive than forgiveness. After carrying the burden of our sin, it is wonderfully freeing to know that the one we have wronged has completely forgiven us. Jesus told His disciples to ask God for forgiveness every time they prayed. Jesus knew that we would daily incur debts against God, as we inevitably fall short of God’s standard. A day does not go by that we do not need to ask God to remove our debt against Him.

Jesus warned that we should expect forgiveness from God as we forgive those who sin against us, for God will forgive us in the same way we forgive others (Matt. 6:15). God’s nature is forgiveness (Exod. 34:6–7). If we are to be His disciples, we must follow His example. If God will forgive our most relentless enemy, we can do nothing less. Jesus did not say that certain offenses are unworthy of our forgiveness. We have no biblical excuse for allowing unforgiveness in our hearts.

If you choose to withhold forgiveness from someone, your worship and prayers are futile (Matt. 5:23–24). Ask God to make you aware of those dark corners in your life where you are harboring resentment. A keen awareness of your own need for forgiveness will put the offenses of others in their proper light. Ask God to make you like Christ so that, even when you are being persecuted, you can pray “Father, forgive them.”

Are you ready to pray? Go on your knees and ask God to give the Spirit of true love that comes from above as it is in His power to do so. Ask Him also to obey His commandment to forgive others just as you have been forgiven.

Father Your Word is yea and amen! Help us we pray Thee in Jesus Name.

Beloved, “greater glory” is riding on wings of this all important discussion on love and forgiveness, imbibe them and you will be glad you did. Your will be on top of every situation that comes your way going forward.

May God help you I pray in Jesus Name, Amen!

Remain ever blessed in the Lord.
