What you do next will determine your Prognosis.

Matthew 6:14-15 says” For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Your hurt your injured your brain just realized you are hurt what do you do next. Most of us first thing we want to do it retaliate, speak negatively back to them hurt them with our words. What you do at that exact moment will determine your outcome in life.

Will you get healing or will you sit out and be stricken with poison in your body?  Normally the first thing we do when we are hurt is go into plan of an attack, our body defenses immediately prepare for an attack. Your wounded on the field and you are in need of physical medical care it’s your choice as to what you want for your injury.

Many of us know that it’s always best to forgive then to seek revenge or justice for ourselves. The reason many don’t want to forgive at that moment is that we think that forgiveness gives that person permission or that we excuse what they have done, and so we know in our heart that what they done was wrong we feel they should be held accountable for what they’ve done. Remember forgiveness never excuses or gives a person permission for anything, what forgiveness does is sets you free and that you release that person or persons into God’s hands.

  1. I really appreciate this word, especially the last paragraph–I had the mistaken thought that forgiveness does excuse and give people permission to continue their hurtful behavior. I’m glad that’s not true, as I’m all for being set free–and desire to release people into God’s hands. Thanks so much today. God bless you.

    1. You know Sis many years ago I thought the same thing you did until I saw that forgiving them sets me free my pastor always tells us when we don’t forgive you become their prisoner and I decided I am not going to be a prisoner to anyone. At times we want those who hurt us to get what is coming to them but when we forgive God deals with them far much better than we can. Once I learned that it does make it much easier to forgive and though we must remind ourselves all the time do we want to be free or caged up? I rather be free like a bird, amen

  2. Forgiveness, when done through the power of Christ, can be so healing. . . not just for us, but for the person we are forgiving. I pray more people open themselves and others up to that freedom.

    1. I pray the same thing, it’s something that must be taught in churches all the time. One can never get enough teaching on forgiveness.

  3. Thank you so much for this word about forgiveness. I can’t hear it enough. Praying to forgive quicker and quicker, before those feelings kick in that tell me anything other than to forgive. God bless you, dear Deisray, and your ministry to us!

    1. Thank you Debbie and as you said when we don’t forgive quickly those nasty feelings will come to us and began to take root that is why we must forgive.
