“Love Keeps No Record of Wrong”
Holding onto the past or holding onto a grudge is all too easy, especially when you find yourself being hurt over and over again. Maybe you have been hurt by different people but all in the same way, or maybe you have been hurt by the same person but in numerous ways. Whatever your situation may be, forget it. True love is enacted through grace and mercy such as what Christ offers us not only on a daily basis, but on a second-by-second basis. The longer we hold on to some sort of sin, regret, wrongdoing, or ill manner, the longer we allow these thoughts and memories to creep into our being and terminate our true love and affection we could be feeling instead.
Question & Answer: Who do you currently need to let go of past circumstances with?
Challenge: Approach that person (or people), via note or in person, and let it go!
God, I pray that You soften my heart. Help me to let go of any past hurt that I’ve been holding onto; bring me peace. In Your name, I command the enemy to back up – he has no place in my life! He has no authority over my life. You are the Lord and Savior over my life. Take the bitterness; take the rage; take the anger. Spread your protection over me and surround me with Your favour as with a shield. Forgive me for any known sin and bring to light any unknown sin that is separating my heart from You. In You, I have been made brand new. Draw me nearer to You. Fill my spirit with unconditional love, pure joy, and a calming peace. Help me to forgive others as You have forgiven me. Thank You for Your unconditional love and unending grace. In Your name, I pray – Amen.
With love in Christ,
