Life is a process that we live one moment at a time. And each moment and decision that we make will not always yield favorable results. But we know that all things will work together for our good (see Romans 8:28). In these less favorable moments we must be able to forgive ourselves. So many times were quick to focus on forgiving others...but what do we do when we’re the offender?
Then Peter came to him and asked, “Lord, how often should I forgive someone who sins against me? Seven times? No, not seven times,” Jesus replied, “but seventy times seven!”
We must be able to extend this same level of 70x7(then repeat) grace on ourselves. If we find it hard to forgive others most likely we find it hard to forgive ourselves! This is a heart issue that can only be resolved by the love of God!
Today let’s allow the love of God to permeate our hearts and deal with any areas that we have failed to let ourselves go from offenses! His love is unfailing, never ending and more than enough for even the worst situations.
