Matthew 18:21-22 Then Peter came up to Him and said, Lord, how many times may my brother sin against me and I forgive him and let it go? [As many as] up to seven times? Vs 22 Jesus answered him, I tell you, not up to seven times, but seventy times seven.

That means any time some body does something to mistreat us we need to forgive them, no matter what they have done. Now if we try to forgive just with in our own strength we will fail.

We need the power of the Holy Spirit to empower us to forgive. That power is imparted to us as we spend time in our Heavenly Father‘s presence. 

That is why it is so important to be planted in a church where we can freely worship God and hear His word preached. We need to be in His presence in order to supernaturally forgive those that sin against us. Several years ago some one stole from me a motorcycle that was very expensive.

I was very angry when I first discovered that I was ripped off. But then I made a choice to forgive them and just let it go. If I would have aloud bitterness into my heart it would have destroyed me.

It is proven that one of the number one causes of sickness and disease is not forgiving those that have done us wrong.

So make a decision to walk in unconditional love today and release those that have done you wrong.

I choose to forgive!
