11.15.22     Let Go

Did you know that the Cross is all about letting go?  God the Father is all about letting go? A majority of counseling and life issues are all about letting go?  All of these statements are true and once we can take in the reality of these truths, our lives will become more internally peaceful and stable.

One extremely important verse in the Bible concerning this is found in Matthew 6:14-15 :

 "IF you forgive men when they sin (offend) you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins (offenses), your Father (in heaven) will not forgive your sins."

Ephesians 4:32  "Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you."

Colossians 3:13  "Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord for gave you."

Forgiveness does not mean we forget but that we let go of the "right" to hang onto the offense and to get even.  Forgiveness does not always mean this person who offended you is safe for you to be around but it does mean you let go of wishing any evil will upon them or that you continue to talk bad about them. Let go and let God deal with them.  Think about it. Each and everyone of us has wronged someone at some time in our life, intentionally or unintentionally. And it is a simple fact that we need heavenly Father's forgiveness between us and him every single day. We offend him in our thoughts, our speech, and our actions. I am grateful he sees us through the sacrifice of forgiveness his son Jesus made on the Cross.

Think about it. What kind of life do you want?  I want one filled with internal peace and unblocked answers to prayers, with the mercy and goodness of God weaving throughout my spirit and life, no matter what is happening externally.

Check out verses concerning forgiveness towards others, of ourselves, the work on the Cross. You simply cannot love Christ and not be wise to forgive and let go. Lets grow up, become mature in Christ, stop fussing and squabbling and offending. Amen.

-Pastor Sandra Matheson 



Heavenly Father, bring to our remembrance of sacrifice that Jesus went through on the Cross to submit a blood sacrifice for our sins, individually and collectively. Let us be mindful of not taking on any offenses and not putting out any. Help us to remember we are all human and have stressful and bad days, hurts and wounds that cannot be seen, and how we would like to be treated as well. Give us wisdom to know when to truly forgive and to walk away, knowing that person or situation is not healthy for us. We desire to be free and healthy in mind, body, soul, and spirit.   Amen

Numbers 30:2 ESV    If a man vows a vow to the Lord, or swears an oath to bind himself by a pledge, he shall not break his word. He shall do according to all that proceeds out of his mouth.

Matthew 5:37 ESV   Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil.

Here we are in a new year. New opportunities, new mercies and grace, new beginnings. In my Bible class we discussed New Year's resolutions.  Are you one who does that? Do you follow through and stay this course - all year long? Are you a person of your word or do you mean it at the time and then totally forget it?

As Christians, we must learn to be thoughtful (full of thought) before we speak or give a promise or a pledge to someone.  Our word should be our bond. Our word, and how we keep it, will speak volumes to others of who you really are - and if your walk with Christ is solid.  We expect others to keep their promises to us; we expect God the Father to keep His word, His promises to us. Why then are we so thoughtless in some of our promises and some of our pledges?  Take your word seriously; others do. Take your promises seriously, as if you are giving it to yourself - because you are!
Come on Christians, let us discipline ourselves to be people who honor God's Word without reservations and move in integrity in our promises to Him and to others.
Yes, sometimes things change that are out of control, but that is rare.
So, I am calling all of you up on this issue this year:  If you want God the Father to honor all His promises to you, be faithful and honor all your promises to Him and to others! 
 Be a man or woman of your word!    Amen!

- Pastor Sandi

The last time I give promises was with my mother. I promised her that I will never leave her no matter what happen. I told her that I will stay beside her even if she pushed me away. And that is something I am very regretful because those promises that I said was my own destruction. It really kills me in a way that I still promised to myself that I will be with her even if she didn’t care about me. I just make myself so miserable and pushing myself to a person who didn’t want to be with me.
