Forgiveness: A Mighty Weapon

One of the weapons we have in our spiritual arsenal is forgiveness – not only that we have RECEIVED forgiveness but that WE forgive. The enemy of your soul HATES forgiveness – he cannot deal with it. All the more reason to forgive those who may have wronged you, said something out of order or ignored you.
What would keep us from forgiving? Is it pride? The Word tells us that pride always comes before a fall. I have learned that forgiving anyone REQUIRES a CONSCIOUS decision on my part and replacing unforgiveness with prayer for that person. Reaching back in time I asked God to bring to my mind anyone I haven’t forgiven – He did. All the way back to age 5. Children remember things you think they may have forgotten since they were so young. They don’t. Forgiving not only brings peace – it is a mighty weapon & the enemy cannot deal with your throwing away one of his weapons. Check your arsenal. We are made overcomers by the Word of our testimony. I choose to forgive.
