Today’s Inspiration: “Do to others as you would have them do to you. “If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them.” Luke 6:31-32. The Bible teaches us that out of our hearts flow issues of life and we need to learn how to guard our hearts from offences from others and offences to others. Many do not deal with the latter. In the healing ministry, we discovered that many souls didn’t deal with how they treat others, and hurting souls don’t know that they do. One can be blinded by our wounds and only the Holy Spirit can reveal.
Sanctification is not just asking God for forgiveness in repentance but also loving and forgiving oneself in reflection. Releasing forgiveness to others and asking others for forgiveness are two edged sword which are equally important for the restoration of our souls in breaking bitterness, hatred, resentment, anger and pride. You can guard health by exercising, eating, and resting well but not toxic emotions and thoughts. Only the Word of God can do so. John 8:32. In fact, you will discover the fact that hurting people hurt themselves. We all need the healing and cleansing of God daily. Hurts always cause divisions but Healing brings restoration and reconciliation. Glory to God!
Prayer: O Lord my God, let us not just love those who love us but give us faith to also love our enemies, pray for those who hurt us and do good to those who mistreated us. Forgive me if I have also caused hurt to others and guide me to change to become more like Christ and His image each day, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
