Forgive and Forget

Capture that forgiveness is not only an act performed by the MIND…but also by the HEART.

Understand that when you forgive from the mind, you make a deliberate decision to give up resentment and your claim to requital for the wrong deeds done against you, EVEN IF YOU DO NOT FEEL LIKE IT.  This is good; however, Jesus requires MORE!  Jesus requires you to also forgive FROM YOUR HEART.

FORGIVE YOUR BROTHER FROM YOUR HEART
(Matthew 18:35).

Blessed One, know that if you forgive from your mind, you will only be able to give up your resentment partially, because the rest of it will still be lodged in your heart.  However, if you also involve your heart during the process of forgiveness, you have the opportunity to experience a miracle.  If you invite Me, Jesus, into your heart to deal with the heartache caused by wrongful deeds committed against you, I will heal your heart.  In turn, not only will you be able to let go of your resentment, but the resentment will let go of you, too. Because the pain in your heart will be gone, you will be able to FORGET the wrongs committed against you.

IT IS FOR FREEDOM THAT CHRIST HAS SET US FREE
(Galatians 5:1).

Know that forgiveness from your heart requires your heart to be involved…to be engaged…to participate.  To forgive from your heart I need you to FEEL the effects of the wrongful deeds committed against you—the rejection, the abandonment, the shame, and the condemnation. Then, submit your heart to Me, just the way it is, so I may set it free from the PAIN.

Only then you will be able to FORGIVE and FORGET.

Is there someone is your life whom you have forgiven from your MIND, but not from your HEART, yet?

I urge you to speak to God about this person and the pain she or he has caused in your heart. Submit each piece of heartache to God, along with the underlying feelings of abandonment, condemnation, rejection, and shame. Let the Lord Jesus mend your heart completely, even if it takes a long time. Then, you will finally be free to forget.

PRAYER: Lord Jesus, I invite Your Presence and Participation into my broken heart to deal with the heartache caused by wrongful deeds committed against me.  Lord Jesus, heal my heart, so I will be able to let go of my resentment, and the resentment will let go of me.  Then, I will be able to FORGIVE the wrongs done against me…and also FORGET, for it is for freedom that You have set me free.

Start Where You Are

NOW THE MIND OF THE FLESH [WHICH IS SENSE AND REASON WITHOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT] IS DEATH [DEATH THAT COMPRISES ALL THE MISERIES ARISING FROM SIN, BOTH HERE AND HEREAFTER]. BUT THE MIND OF THE [HOLY] SPIRIT IS LIFE AND [SOUL] PEACE [BOTH NOW AND FOREVER]
(Romans 8:6 AMP).

Capture that the human mind loves to reason without the Holy Spirit.  However, reasoning without the Holy Spirit leads to sin and death, both here and hereafter.  Reasoning without the Holy Spirit causes us to reject God’s intimate Presence and Participation in the innermost parts of our beings.

The Father lived IN the Lord Jesus, while He was here on earth. They shared the intimate Glory of Oneness. And then the Lord Jesus passed this Glory of Oneness on to us—to live in us and through us, while the Father lives in Him and through Him. Imagine that! The very same Oneness that Jesus enjoyed with His Father has been made available to us. To receive this Oneness, all you need to do is invite the reasoning of the Holy Spirit into your daily, moment-by-moment tasks, wherever you are, whatever you are doing.

THAT THEY ALL MAY BE ONE; AS THOU, FATHER, ART IN ME, AND I IN THEE, THAT THEY ALSO MAY BE ONE IN US…AND THE GLORY WHICH THOU GAVEST ME I HAVE GIVEN THEM; THAT THEY MAY BE ONE, EVEN AS WE ARE ONE
(John 17:20-22).

Blessed One, cultivate Oneness with Me. Start where you are.  Do not go and look for something big or different to do for Me.  Invite the reasoning of the Holy Spirit into the conclusions of your current situations and problems.  Do you have a child?  Invite the reasoning of the Holy Spirit into your frustration, when your child becomes irritable, during your Christmas shopping.  Do you have a husband or friend?  Invite the reasoning of the Holy Spirit into your feelings of abandonment, when your husband or friend ignores you, during this busy time of the year.  Do you have a co-worker?  Invite the reasoning of the Holy Spirit into your feelings of shame and condemnation, when your co-worker ridicules you for your mistakes.  Do you have an enemy?  Invite the reasoning of the Holy Spirit into your feelings of rejection, when your enemy accuses you.  You will find that this is no easy task.  But, this cultivates ONENESS WITH ME. This allows Jesus to live HIS LIFE in you, while I, the Father, live in Him.

THIS IS HOW GOD SHOWED HIS LOVE AMONG US: HE SENT HIS ONE AND ONLY SON INTO THE WORLD THAT WE MIGHT LIVE THROUGH HIM
(1 John 4:9).

How does this message of ONENESS with God challenge and change your thinking, this Christmas season?

PRAYER: Lord God, I want to receive Your Gift of Oneness; therefore, I lay down my own reasoning to allow the reasoning of Your Holy Spirit in me and through me, this Christmas season.

It Is the Season of Glory

FROM HIS ABUNDANCE WE HAVE ALL RECEIVED ONE GRACIOUS BLESSING AFTER ANOTHER
(John 1:16 NLT).

I bless you to prepare differently for this Christmas Season than you have for those in the past. Do not fill yourself with dread for these days, or rehearsal of what has been, or worry of what might be. Instead, allow the Everlasting Father to take you to a higher and deeper place…a new place—a place of Glory.  Let Him show you who He wants to be for you, during this season of His Glory. Fill the next month with reflections of PAST blessings from God, and with anticipation of FUTURE blessings from Him, as well.

FOR TO US A CHILD IS BORN, TO US A SON IS GIVEN, AND THE GOVERNMENT WILL BE ON HIS SHOULDERS. AND HE WILL BE CALLED WONDERFUL COUNSELOR, MIGHTY GOD, EVERLASTING FATHER, PRINCE OF PEACE
(Isaiah 9:6).

For you a Child is born.  To you a Son is given.  Invite His Government to govern your will, your thoughts, your emotions, your desires, and your nature, during this month. Allow His Counsel to show you Joy in your sorrow, Peace in your anxiety, and Hope in your despair. Connect with the Presence of the Everlasting Father when you feel alone and lonely, during this time of Glory.

Anticipate Mighty God’s blessings when you buy gifts, when you spend time with your family, and when you look at the beautiful Christmas decorations everywhere that celebrate His Glory.  Invite the King of Kings to rule in the circumstances of your life, during this season.  Allow Him to remove your animosity, your anger, and your disappointments from your heart and from your mind.  Ask the Wonderful Counselor to lead you into all Truth, in the midst of your circumstances.  Meditate on everything that is honorable, pure, and lovely.

Invite the Prince of Peace to make new memories for you, this month of December, and to remove the pain of old memories of years gone by.  Start new traditions as you allow His Light to shine into your heart.  From His Abundance, receive the many blessings the Everlasting Father longs to give you through His precious Son, the Christ.

Whose government is going to govern your heart this Christmas season: the government of the Lord Jesus, whose birthday you are celebrating, or the government of the father-of-lies?

PRAYER: Wonderful Counselor, I invite Your Government to govern my heart, Your Counsel to reign in my mind, and Your Peace to dominate my spirit, during this Christmas season. Thank you for all the blessings of past Christmas seasons. Help me to focus and look forward to all the new and special blessings You have in store for me, this year.

The Two Counsels

Come to Me to Abide in Me

COME TO ME
(Matthew 11:28).

ABIDE IN ME, AND I IN YOU
(John 15:4).

Pay attention that the Lord Jesus did not say, “Come to Me to abide WITH Me,” but rather, “Come to Me to abide IN Me…and I in you.”  To abide means to remain or to stay.

Understand that there is a difference.  To stay WITH Jesus means that you try very hard to keep up with Him…to be like Him…to follow a set of rules.  It is about fixing your mind, heart, and circumstances. It is about mending the past, changing the present, and controlling the future.  It is all about what you ought to DO to be acceptable, loved, and worthy.

However, to abide IN Jesus means to let go…and let God. It is all about inviting God’s Participation into the minute details of your life, instead of controlling, complaining, and criticizing. It is about allowing God’s Presence into the black stone of bitterness in your heart, instead of covering it up with vows and resentment. It is about exposing the negative, out-of-control thoughts in your mind to God’s infinite Understanding, instead of letting them attack you and those around you. It is about letting the Law of the Spirit set you free from the Law of Sin and Death, instead of trying to cope with sinful habits and patterns, on your own. It is about inviting God’s Will to take control of your life. It is about asking Christ to crucify the OLD MAN in you, so you may be free to follow the desires of the Holy Spirit in you.

To abide IN Jesus is all about what you cannot do. It is all about what Christ came to do for you…IN you.

BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO HAVE LEARNED TO ACCLAIM YOU, WHO WALK IN THE LIGHT OF YOUR PRESENCE, LORD
(Psalm 89:15).

I bless you to come to the Lord Jesus and abide IN Him.  Stop striving, fixing, and doing.  Stop hiding, running, and blaming.  Instead, let Him be in you what HE has always planned to be. Let Him do in you and through you, using His own Presence. Let go…and let God.

What would you like to change today, in order to start abiding IN the Lord Jesus, moment-by-moment, from now on?

PRAYER: Majesty, I come to abide IN You. I come to acclaim You and to walk in the Light of Your Presence.  Come and take control of my life. Be in me what You want to be. Do in me and through me what You want to do. Thy Kingdom come. Thy Will be done…in my life, as it is in Heaven.

No Evil Will Conquer You

MY PRAYER IS NOT THAT YOU TAKE THEM OUT OF THE WORLD BUT THAT YOU PROTECT THEM FROM THE EVIL ONE
(John 17:15).

The Lord Jesus knew that your problem would not be with the world, but with the evil one.  He knew that your problem would not be with your circumstances, but with what the evil one told you about your circumstances—that they are impossible, unsolvable, and unchangeable. He knew that your problem would not be with what people told you, but with what the evil one told you: “Your mistakes are too numerous.  Your character is too flawed.  Your defect is non-redeemable.”  Therefore, Jesus asked His Father, the Most High, to protect you from the evil one.

The evil one sets you up with his purpose, from the start. He introduces you to his lies. These lies become your purpose from the evil one. Through them, he supplies everything you need, in order to make sure you serve him with your soul, your spirit, and your body. He furnishes you with his will, his desires, and his nature, so you may carry out the deeds he commissioned you to do, in obedience to these lies. Then, he sits back and watches you fulfill his purpose for your life.

IF YOU MAKE THE LORD YOUR REFUGE,
IF YOU MAKE THE MOST HIGH YOUR SHELTER,
NO EVIL WILL CONQUER YOU
(Psalm 91:9-10).

Don’t run from the evil one’s lies. Don’t hide from them, either. Don’t blame others for the evil one’s words in your mind.  Instead, push through your fear, your disappointment, your confusion, your anger, your jealousy, and your resentment, and bring your sadness, your badness, and your madness to the Perfect Father. Make the Lord your Refuge; then, no evil will conquer you.

Expose the evil one’s lies about you to God—that your mistakes are too numerous, your character is too flawed, and your defect is non-redeemable. Tell God what the evil one said about your circumstances—that they are impossible, unsolvable, and unchangeable. You will find that His arm is not too short to deliver you from the evil one.

WAS MY ARM TOO SHORT TO DELIVER YOU? DO I LACK THE STRENGTH TO RESCUE YOU? BY A MERE REBUKE I DRY UP THE SEA, I TURN RIVERS INTO A DESERT; THEIR FISH ROT FOR LACK OF WATER AND DIE OF THIRST
(Isaiah 50:2-3).

What has been keeping you from making the Most High your shelter against the evil one?

PRAYER: Most High, protect me from the evil one, so he would not be able to fulfill his purpose for my life.  Deliver me from his deceitful desires in me, from his spiteful will in me, from his negative, destructive beliefs in me, from his sinful nature in me. Deliver me from the evil one, so I may belong to You.

The Two Counsels

Your Father’s Unlimited Resources

WHEN I THINK OF ALL THIS, I FALL TO MY KNEES AND PRAY TO THE FATHER, THE CREATOR OF EVERYTHING IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH.  I PRAY THAT FROM HIS GLORIOUS, UNLIMITED RESOURCES HE WILL EMPOWER YOU WITH INNER STRENGTH THROUGH HIS SPIRIT
(Ephesians 3:14-16 NLT).

Did you know that your Perfect Father, the Creator of everything in Heaven and on earth, has unlimited Resources from which He is able to supply what you need, even today?  Maybe you believe that there is no answer for your problem.  Maybe you believe that there is no solution for your unacceptable character.  Maybe you believe that there is no remedy for your sinful habits and patterns of escape.

GREAT IS OUR LORD, AND OF GREAT POWER: HIS UNDERSTANDING IS INFINITE
(Psalm 147:5).

Blessed Child, I am the Perfect Father, the Creator of everything in Heaven and on earth. I am of great Power…and I created YOU, too. Now, from My glorious, unlimited resources, I am able to empower you with inner strength through My Spirit, so you may have sufficiency in all things, from the inside out. All you need to do is DRAW from Me.

Fall to your knees and pray to Me, your Father in Heaven. My glorious Recourses are unlimited to supply everything you need for life and godliness, despite the ungodliness in your nature, the instability in your emotions, and the spitefulness in your will.

Look up, Child. I am able to make all My Grace abound toward you, so you may have what it takes to be gentle, good, gracious, faithful, patient, forgiving, and filled with self-control. My Grace is enough to cover your past failures and mistakes, to deal with your present guilt and shame, and to ensure a hopeful future.  

AND GOD IS ABLE TO MAKE ALL GRACE ABOUND TOWARD YOU; THAT YE, ALWAYS HAVING ALL SUFFICIENCY IN ALL THINGS, MAY ABOUND TO EVERY GOOD WORK
(2 Corinthians 9:8).

Regardless of your need, shortcoming, or defect, God is able to make all Grace abound toward you, so that you may have sufficiency in all things—in your will, your nature, your thoughts, your emotions, your desires…and your deeds.

For what problem in your life do you need to draw from the Perfect Father’s unlimited resources?

PRAYER: Lord God, how great You are! I pray that from Your glorious, unlimited resources You empower me with inner strength through Your Spirit, so I may have sufficiency in all things.

The Two Counsels

Make the Most of Every Opportunity

BE VERY CAREFUL, THEN, HOW YOU LIVE—NOT AS UNWISE BUT AS WISE, MAKING THE MOST OF EVERY OPPORTUNITY, BECAUSE THE DAYS ARE EVIL
(Ephesians 5:15-16).

I bless you to be very careful how you live.  Make the most of every opportunity…every task…every incident. Set your mind on what God’s Spirit desires, through His Divine Nature, and not on what the father-of-lies desires, through the sinful nature.

THOSE WHO LIVE ACCORDING TO THE SINFUL NATURE HAVE THEIR MINDS SET ON WHAT THAT NATURE DESIRES; BUT THOSE WHO LIVE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE SPIRIT HAVE THEIR MINDS SET ON WHAT THE SPIRIT DESIRES
(Romans 8:5).

You need to understand that it is during all the ordinary little conversations that you have the chance to make the most of every opportunity. It is during your regular daily tasks that you have the choice to either set your mind on what the father-of-lies desires for your life, through his sinful nature, or what the Holy Spirit desires for your life, through His Divine Nature.

 MAN IS NOT FULLY CONDITIONED AND DETERMINED BUT RATHER DETERMINES HIMSELF WHETHER HE GIVES IN TO CONDITIONS OR STAND UP TO THEM.
(Victor E. Frankl)

Grasp that to “live in accordance with the Spirit” is a moment-by-moment opportunity.  This does not only apply to the big incidences of crises and chaos in your life, but to the little daily happenings: the simple assignments…the basic chores…the ordinary errands.

FOR FROM HIM AND THROUGH HIM AND TO HIM ARE ALL THINGS. TO HIM BE THE GLORY FOREVER!
(Romans 11:36).

I bless you to live FROM God, THROUGH God, and TO God during your daily errands—when the disappointment, confusion, and frustration strike—because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.

BECAUSE THOSE WHO ARE LED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD ARE SONS OF GOD
(Romans 8:14).

 How do you make the most of every opportunity, every day?

PRAYER: Lord Jesus, remind me to submit the little moments of each day to You: the moments of disappointment…the moments of loneliness…the moments of fear.  May I live FROM You, THROUGH You, and TO You, during each moment, and so make the most of every opportunity.

The Two Counsels

Believe…And You Will Have Life

Is there something in your life that you do not like: your dysfunctional personality, the darkness in your mind, the death in your spirit, the painful feelings in your heart, the sickness in your body, or the senseless life you have lived, until now? If you could go to the pawn shop and exchange your dark mind for a new mind, filled with light, would you consider it? If you could ask a surgeon to replace your broken heart with a whole one, would you do it? If you could ask a psychiatrist to give you a pill that would eradicate your spirit of death and grow a new spirit of life, in its place, would you contemplate it? If you could ask a psychologist to replace your dysfunctional personality with a different one, would you try it? If there were a special kind of food that would heal your body from its diseases, would you eat it? If someone who is filled with life, love, and hope offered you her/his life in exchange for yours, would you take it? If someone could bring Heaven to earth, would you receive it?

FOR AS THE FATHER HAS LIFE IN HIMSELF, SO HE HAS GRANTED THE SON TO HAVE LIFE IN HIMSELF
(John 5:26).

I have GOOD NEWS for you.  There is someone who brought Heaven to earth: into your troubled heart, into your dark mind, into your dead spirit, into your disease-ridden body, and into your broken life.  The Perfect Father has Life in Himself. He gave that Life to His Son, Jesus Christ…to bring YOU that Life, as well. When you receive that Life, in faith, you receive HIS LIFE, complete with HIS MIND, HIS HEART, HIS SPIRIT, HIS BODY, and HIS PURPOSE…and this Life lasts forever.

BUT THESE ARE WRITTEN THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE THAT JESUS IS THE CHRIST, THE SON OF GOD, AND THAT BY BELIEVING YOU MAY HAVE LIFE IN HIS NAME
(John 20:31).

You cannot lead two lives, at the same time. It will either be the Lord Jesus, living HIS LIFE in you, or YOU, living YOUR life in you. The choice is yours.

What do you need to do to receive the LIFE the Perfect Father gave the Lord Jesus to give to YOU?

You give Him yours, in faith. Then, you ask Him for His, in faith.

PRAYER: Father of our Lord Jesus, I worship You with gladness for the Life that You have in Yourself. How encouraged I am that You have granted that same Life to Your Son, Jesus, and for offering that Life to me, as well. In faith, I surrender my life to You, in exchange for Your Life to dwell in me, through Your Spirit. Thank you that this Life lasts forever.

How often do we find ourselves doing “good deeds,” just to find out that our “good deeds” were not really good, but merely a reaction to the OLD MAN belief “You are bad”?

The Two Counsels

What You Need to Be Truly Happy

THEY SAY A PERSON NEEDS THREE THINGS TO BE TRULY HAPPY IN THIS WORLD:
SOMEONE TO LOVE, SOMETHING TO DO,
AND SOMETHING TO HOPE FOR
(Thomas Edward Bodett).

I have found this to be true in my life.
I need three things to experience true joy in this world:
to love God,
to do the good works God has prepared for me to do,
and to have the hope of possessing a heart that is good, acceptable, and worthy.

I bless you to believe that you were created with the desire to love God; however, you need to understand HOW to love God.  Loving God is not just a feeling.  Loving God is not just a one-time decision.  Loving God is a moment-by-moment interchange of surrendering and receiving—surrendering everything you are, to God, to receive everything God is, to you.

I bless you to believe that you were created to do the good works GOD has prepared for you, since the beginning of time.  These works accommodate your personality, skills, and gifts.  They allow you to be you!  When you do the good works GOD has prepared specifically for you, you experience God’s Peace, God’s Power, and God’s Joy! How do you know what those good works are? Ask Him! Get to know Him. Then, He will show them to you.

I bless you to believe that you were created with the desire to have a good heart.  People always ask, “Have you given your heart to Jesus?”  But, I want to know, “After you have given your heart to Jesus, have you asked Jesus to give His heart to you?” This spiritual exchange is absolutely necessary if you want to be happy. When you receive the heart of Jesus, you do not have to strive to make your own heart good, work to make yourself acceptable, and toil to prove that you are worthy.  HIS HEART IS ALREADY GOOD. Bring your broken heart to him just the way it is, full of fear, animosity, jealousy, resentment, anger, anxiety, suffering, and disappointment, and ask Him to exchange all of that for His own Heart. Then, with Joy, proceed to draw water out of the wells of salvation.

THEREFORE WITH JOY SHALL YE DRAW WATER OUT OF THE WELLS OF SALVATION
(Isaiah 12:3).

Have you given your heart, with everything in it, to Jesus? 

Have you asked Jesus to give His heart, with everything in it, to you? 

PRAYER: Most High, how I love loving You, moment-by-moment, through an interchange of surrendering and receiving—SURRENDERING TO YOU EVERYTHING I AM AND DO, TO RECEIVE FROM YOU EVERYTHING YOU ARE AND DO.

If you surrender your pain to the father-of-lies, he will coax you into sinful solutions of hiding, blaming, and running. He will take you down that broad road of destruction where he will kill you from the inside out.

The Two Counsels

How To Be Perfect

Is there someone in your life who hates you?  Is there someone in your life who always tries to manipulate and control you?  Is there someone in your life who is spiteful…who is defensive…who is contentious?

BUT YOU ARE TO BE PERFECT, EVEN AS YOUR FATHER IN HEAVEN IS PERFECT
(Matthew 5:48).

Do you know what your Father is expecting of you?  Yes, you guessed it—to be perfect!  What would a perfect person say to someone who hates him?  How does a perfect person react to someone who tries to manipulate and control him?  What would a perfect person do with someone who spitefully uses him?

YE HAVE HEARD THAT IT HATH BEEN SAID, THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR, AND HATE THINE ENEMY.  BUT I SAY UNTO YOU, LOVE YOUR ENEMIES, BLESS THEM THAT CURSE YOU, DO GOOD TO THEM THAT HATE YOU, AND PRAY FOR THEM WHICH DESPITEFULLY USE YOU, AND PERSECUTE YOU; THAT YE MAY BE THE CHILDREN OF YOUR FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN: FOR HE MAKETH HIS SUN TO RISE ON THE EVIL AND ON THE GOOD, AND SENDETH RAIN ON THE JUST AND ON THE UNJUST.  FOR IF YE LOVE THEM WHICH LOVE YOU, WHAT REWARD HAVE YE? DO NOT EVEN THE PUBLICANS THE SAME?  AND IF YE SALUTE YOUR BRETHREN ONLY, WHAT DO YE MORE THAN OTHERS? DO NOT EVEN THE PUBLICANS SO?  BE YE THEREFORE PERFECT, EVEN AS YOUR FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN IS PERFECT
(Matthew 5:43-48).

Know that your Perfect Father knows that you cannot be perfect by mere effort.  Therefore, your Father sent the Spirit of His Son, Jesus, into your heart, so He can be perfect in you, through you, and for you.

IT IS BECAUSE OF HIM THAT YOU ARE IN CHRIST JESUS, WHO HAS BECOME FOR US WISDOM FROM GOD—THAT IS, OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS, HOLINESS AND REDEMPTION
(1 Corinthians 1:30).

Notice that the Lord Jesus has become your Redemption, Righteousness, and Holiness from God.

GOD SENT THE SPIRIT OF HIS SON INTO OUR HEARTS
(Galatians 4:6).

Surrender your own heart of animosity to Jesus, and allow Him to love your enemies through you—to bless them who curse you, to do good to those who hate you, and to pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.

What might be the wrong way and what might be the right way to be perfect?

PRAYER: Perfect Father, I admit that I cannot be perfect by mere effort.  Therefore, I welcome the Spirit of Your Son, Jesus, into my heart to be perfect in me, through me, and for me.
