A Forgiving Spirit.
Zechariah 3 Verse 1 to 7:
Using V1 To 4:
V1: “Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of The Lord, with Satan standing at his right side to accuse him.
V2: The Lord said to Satan; ‘The Lord rebuke you, Satan! May the Lord who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Isn’t this man a burning stick from the fire.
V3: Now Joshua was dressed with Filthy clothes as he stood before the Angel.
V4: So, He spoke to those standing near Him, ‘Take off his filthy clothes’ Then He said to him, “See I have removed your guilt from you and I will cloth you with splendid robes,”
Forgiveness is not a feeling ——— It is a release.
To pray is to change. Prayer is the glorious way God uses to transform us.
If you are unwilling to change, we will abandon prayer and focus on our own lives. Our focus should be to want more of Him.
The nearer we come to the heartbeat of God, the more we see our need and the more we desire to be more like Him.
Consider the cross. Jesus took on the form of a man, but was God; offered forgiveness in the pain and agony. He didn’t have to suffer, but He did so that we could be forgiven of all the things that stopped us from achieving His eternal plans and destiny for our lives.
Forgiveness means that you will no hold that failure or hurt against anyone. It means that you don’t bring up the past failures. It means you recognize that Christ has already paid for your sins (wrong doings). Because God has forgive you, you can choose to forgive others. Allow yourself to be transformed by the power of forgiveness.
