Mission Obstacles

Unforgiveness is excess baggage, daughters, weighing down our lives and destroying our mission. People need loving the most when they deserve it the least. If Jesus had waited until His enemies repented He’d never have prayed on the cross, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing” (Luke 23:34). Sure, it’s easier to forgive when others acknowledge their offense. But if that’s a prerequisite, you may never experience victory. In his book Surprised by Hope, N. T. Wright, a New Testament scholar says, “Forgiveness, is God’s way of life and God’s way to life.” You may let someone off your hook, but that doesn’t mean they’re off God’s hook. He will deal with them the right way and bring about the right result, which is something you can’t do. Besides, what you don’t forgive—you have to relive. So for your own sake daughters, forgive, take back your lives, and begin walking in the blessing of the Lord. Walking in forgiveness is choosing to live a large life. As N.T Wright puts it, “If we close our hearts to forgiveness, then we close our hearts to God!”
