My Daily Devotional


Learn To Forgive

“Forgive, and you will be forgiven.”
Luke 6:37

Today, I want to talk to you about your attitude toward your enemies. How we feel about, and deal with these people in our life that are not friends, is a major indicator of our spiritual growth and character. These are the people in your life that you can’t get along with, that may not like you, that may have harmed you at some time. Jesus gave us the example as to how to handle this, as He loved his enemies, He forgave them, and He prayed for them. Therefore this is how you must deal with your own enemies. You must learn to forgive them, love them and pray for those who are out to get you. Anyone that has allowed bitterness to become a stronghold in their lives, needs to realize that this is not of God, but of Satan. Satan wants you to harbor bitterness and hatred in your heart, as this is one of his weapons to use against you. I know that it may seem impossible to love and pray for your enemies, but when you call upon the strength of God, it is possible to love and pray for them. Remember, that Jesus forgave all those that beat, tortured and even killed Him, and He expects you to have the same forgiveness in your hearts, to forgive others who have sinned against you. I realize that these are difficult words to hear, and even more difficult to put into action, but when you are successful in forgiving, as Jesus did, you will experience a freedom you have never known. I would encourage each of you, to take a few minutes to think about the people in your life that you consider enemies, and pray for them. Ask God to bless them, and open their hearts, and also your heart to love them. Pray for your enemies today, and be like Jesus.
