The one who Forgives, WINS

Updated: Jul 1

“When you forgive anyone, I also forgive that person. Whatever bad thing somebody has done, I have Christ's authority to forgive them. And I do it to help you. We do not want Satan to win against us. He is very clever. We know how he likes to cause us to have trouble.”

‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭2‬:‭10‬-‭11‬ ‭EASY‬‬

What a practical reminder this morning of the destruction unforgiveness can cause. I remember someone teaching me that while unforgiveness may help us feel like we are holding someone accountable It really hurts us to live In unforgiveness.

Unforgiveness is like eating rat poisoning and expecting the other person to die!

In today's scripture I see how unforgiveness truly opens us up to the enemy having a foothold in our lives. I want NO part of giving Satan any room to win in my life, espcially if I can help it. Im sure I give him plenty of ammunition. I used to be in a better habit when I was doing my morning meditation to ask the Lord, "who I need to forgive?" It helped me to keep my side of the street clean I guess you can say.

The fact that Paul talks about unforgiveness right before he talks about the enemy having influence over us is not by coincidence. The more I read the Bible the more I recognize the order in things are shared is so very intentional.

The choice Is truly mine... IF I choose to NOT forgive than Satan can win against me. However If I choose to forgive the person, than Satan can NOT win against me. I think I'll choose to walk in forgiveness. :)
