Parenthetically let me say one last word. Don’t miss this. I know some of you are saying OK, Ok, I understand that I am powerless, God has the power, I want to commit my life to His will, I know what I will do. I’ve got it. Instead of making a decision now though, I’ve solve the problems in my life first and then I will make the decision. I will problem solve and get this straightened out and then I will make the decision.
Please, please, I beg you, inspired by the word of God, don’t do that. If you are a manager do you say OK we are going to make a decision but before we make a decision at work I want to solve all the problems. It is crazy. You make a decision and then you solve the problem. Today you made the decision to get into the wheelbarrow. Jesus Christ will take care of the problems. You first decide to get in. So, what is it going to be? Are you going to get in or are you going to continue to be burned up and choked by that thick, black smoke of your towering inferno? That is one of the reasons I need to release people that have harmed me in the past.
God has forgiven me. Colossians 3:13. “Never hold grudges. Remember the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.” If you have a tough time forgiving people in your life it usually means you don’t feel forgiven. You need to remember Colossians 3:13. The Lord forgave you. You’ll never have to forgive someone more than Jesus has had to forgive you. You never will. And one of the reasons, again, that I should release those people is because God has forgiven me.
