How can you lift the debt from your debtors if you don’t comprehend that you are in debt? How can you offer that freedom if you yourself have never received it? One of the biggest obstacles to forgiving others is our failure to understand the depth of God’s forgiveness for us. It’s not until you accept that God has paid the penalty on your account that will you cease your efforts to collect from others.
When you take God at His word, this glorious freedom can start to sink in. Then you can begin to process of offering your offenders full forgiveness. You must choose to leave all punishment or retaliation up to the Lord. We can totally trust God to handle our injustices appropriately because He is the ultimate judge. “Vengeance is Mine” Heb. 10:30
