DECIDE TO FORGIVE

Devotional for Monday February 28, 2022


Morning Matthew 6:9-15

Noon Psalm 2

Evening Matthew 5:23-26


God has created us with the ability to make decisions, using what others have expressed as "information provided by our intellect and our emotions, which is precisely what makes us human beings." “Forgiveness begins with a decision. Resolve to set yourself free from the prison of unforgiveness.” You do not necessarily have to initially feel the desire to forgive, to achieve it. If anyone knows what it is to be forgiven, it is we who have been born of water and the Spirit. We have been forgiven of a great debt, and we have been ransomed by the price of our Savior's blood. Today is the time to examine your heart and free yourself from any resentment or root of bitterness that has been embedded in it. It's never too late to start. No matter how hard you think it is, it is possible to forgive. It soothes your soul! Of course, we cannot do it without God's help. Give your burden to God. Tell him you need all the help in heaven. He will send a legion of angels to your aid and relieve your sorrows... and instead of causing another injury, do good to the one who has offended you.

Morning Matthew 6:9-15

9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.



Noon Psalm 2

1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision.

5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.



Evening Matthew 5:23-26

23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;

24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.

26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
