THE DANGER OF UNFORGIVENESS

OVERVIEW
(FROM THE OCTOBER 2018 EDITION OF THE SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR. PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE)

FRIDAY 26TH OCTOBER, 2018

SCRIPTURE: And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. Mark 11:25

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The root of bitterness (unforgiveness) makes life bitter.

Unforgiveness refers to the lack of forgiveness; it is the inability of a person to let go of offences and offenders from his/her heart. It is very important to forgive because unforgiveness has many dangers.

Now, what are some of the dangers of unforgiveness?
1. Unforgiveness prevents people from receiving from God
The truth is, if you feel someone’s offence against you is too grievous for you to forgive, your sins as well would be too grievous for God to forgive (Matthew 18:32-35).

2. Prayer becomes a waste of time where unforgiveness is in place
Without forgiveness, prayer becomes a waste of time and an exercise in futility (Matthew 18:35).

3. Unforgiveness attracts the ministry of tormentors
If you don’t forgive, you have signed in to the activities of tormentors in your life. Cancer is a tormentor, ulcer, paralysis, arthritis, poverty, witchcraft attacks, etc. are all tormentors (Matthew 18:32-35). But that shall not be your portion in Jesus’ Name.

4. Unforgiveness invites troubles to life.

5. Unforgiveness leads people to eternal damnation in hell fire (1 John 3:14-15).
Unforgiveness is the pathway to eternity in hellfire. Therefore, refuse to go to hell because of being hurt by a person.

Now, what are the keys to forgiveness?
1. Remember that you have been forgiven by God of your sins
Always know that if God could forgive you, you too can forgive another person.

2. Remember that your eternity is at stake
To agree to be unforgiving is to sign in for hellfire.

Beloved, I prophesy the grace and the spirit of forgiveness upon you, in Jesus’ Name.

REMEMBER THIS: The root of bitterness (unforgiveness) makes life bitter.

ASSIGNMENTS:
1. Make up your mind not to go to hell because of offence or hurt.
2. Ask God daily for the grace to forgive.
3. Pray for and reconcile with all offenders.

PRAYER: Lord, I make demands on Your grace to be able to forgive offences and offenders. Help me not to be an agent of offence to people Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
