Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding.
When you lug around resentment, hatred and bitterness into every relationship including your relationship with Jesus, you suffer greatly. There is no true peace in your life. You may not understand the importance of finding healing for the mind, body and soul through forgiveness since forgiveness may bring old hurts to the surface.
Forgive the person who hurt you.
Matthew 18 verses 21-22Then Peter came and said to him, “Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how often should I forgive? As many as seven times?” 22 Jesus said to him, “Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy-seven times.
Blessed is the one whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.
Establish a relationship with God, not forgiving people distances you from God and there is no peace for an unforgiving person.
John 14 verse 2727 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
