Remember not the past as the structure of the present, for to those in My Name, there is now new life. Forgotten is the past. As one day of sun is not determined by the last, you too are not determined of your past. The Spirit renews, bringing life to death, good from pain, strength from weakness. As the seasons change the earth, so My Spirit renews those in My care. Forgiveness flows, covering wounds to self and others. I have seen all, and know all, and for those that ask in repentant mind and strength of faith, they shall receive the newness, and breathe again. To others, you must also grant this gift. To those who hurt you, they too are to receive what you have received, that again they are made new in the eyes of those made new. As forgiveness flows into your basin, so too it flows out into the basin of others, for as you have been forgiven, to others also forgive. Impatience and anger are the festering of he who knows not forgiveness. Those who curse others, feel cursed themselves, but he who knows the forgiveness of his own, in him, also will be forgiveness – fruit of My fruit. Give life as I have renewed your own.
Matt 18:32-33 (ESV) – Then his master summoned him and said to him, ‘You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you pleaded with me. And should not you have had mercy on your fellow servant, as I had mercy on you?’
Bottom Line: We are forgiven. Unbelievable! Even though He knows us through and through, He has chosen to forgive us. We are heading back into the workplace again today. Who do we need to flow forgiveness to? Not because we feel like it, but because the Lord has asked us to. We are obedient because we are grateful for our own forgiveness. As we have been given new life, let’s be His reflection, and pass it on. Who will it be today?
