“The Lord will wash away the filth of the women of Zion; he will cleanse the bloodstains from Jerusalem by a spirit of judgment and a spirit of fire” Isaiah 4:4
Are you struggling with any sin in your life? There is power in the Holy Spirit to wash away sin and renew us. Titus 3:5. When I accepted Christ in my life as my Lord and Savior, I knew that all my sins has been washed away as the bible states that if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, but I came to realize that, I was still struggling with the sin of un-forgiveness. Even though I confessed that I have forgiven, I still felt the pain each time I spoke with and or saw the people that hurt me in the pass. Then the Spirit of the Lord lead me to Isaiah 58:6, which made me to understand that, some sins are like a heavy burden to keep children of God oppressed.
It takes prayer and fasting to break this yoke. At that moment, I made a decision to fast and pray for the Holy Spirit to take away this burden from my heart. Un-forgiveness is a sin that can cause you a child of God to miss heaven. The bible states that if you don’t forgive, then your father in heaven cannot forgive you as well. “For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.” (Matt 6:14-15).
Therefore Daughters of Zion, if you find yourself struggling with un-forgiveness, this is- the hour to make a decision to forgive as you yield to the Holy Spirit for tomorrow might be too late. Forgive that brother, sister, mother, father, husband, mother in law, father in law that hurt you in the past. Let go and Let God. God Bless you. Ephesians 4:31-32 states “Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” Don’t miss heaven because of what someone did. God forgives us daily, so we have to forgive one another daily as well.
I pray that the holy spirit will help you purge out the spirit of un-forgiveness that you have been hovering all these years in Jesus name. Amen
