I hope and pray that all of you are enjoying your new year. A moment ago while I was meditating, I had a sudden thought which was like a curtain being taken away from my face. What came to my mind is not new but it`s a different way of thinking from the world`s – that’s why am calling it the other perspective. Many people struggle with unforgiveness. We`ve heard many sermons about forgiveness which is the focus of today`s other perspective. Sometimes we even think that we`ve already forgiven someone, only discovering later that we have never done so, when a certain situation in relation to that person presents it self.
Am using the word curtain figuratively to mean what the devil does to people`s minds and lives. Many people have not yet managed to tear that curtain in front of them to have a chance of looking back at their lives and see the truth. It`s so relieving to see the truth but the enemy doesn`t want us to. Unforgiveness hurts you more than it does the unforgiven person. The peace that follows true forgiveness is so good that its difficult to describe; it`s better to experience it your self. 2 Corinthians 4:4 talks about the god of this age blinding the minds of unbelievers so that they can`t see the light of the gospel displaying Christ`s glory ( Please look up this vs and read on). When that curtain is removed or torn you will see the truth. One way to achieve this is through prayer and fasting and seeking God with a sincere heart.
Mathew 6:14 conveys a message implying that if one forgives other people, he or she will also be forgiven by God. But if they don`t forgive others, they will also not be forgiven. Forgiveness removes the torment of unforgiveness and brings about true happiness. Just go for it and you will experience what I am talking about.
