A Faith-based, Non-profit Corporation


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.

Prayer:

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 www.olivebranchdiscipleshipministries.com

Thank you everyone!

Thank you everyone!

I want to take a moment to say thank you very, very much to all those who have visited this Blog and the amazingly kind and encouraging words you have posted concerning the contents.  To be encouraged in one's endeavors is a blessing beyond expression and I am truly blessed. I think we live in a world filled with discouragement and a lot of depression. It is a world that is rushed and out of balance and peace, there is so much to do and so many places to go. 
We as Believers in Christ Jesus have got to learn the discipline of staying in His Peace that passes all understanding. We need to learn to not be offended and to forgive quickly. We need to be thankful in all we have and in every situation. This will bring us victory and the peace we need.
I also find that we are our greatest enemy at times by the self talk we do. I really don't think we would tolerate someone else talking to us that way. Very condemning and hurtful, calling our self stupid, incompetent, etc. The Lord never speaks to us that way but Satan will. What is your first perspective? Are you negative or positive? Do you take a bad report and run with it? Are you overly concerned with what people think of you? Are you a perfectionist/controller? 
All of this will beat against your heart and mind and wear you down. God wants to encourage us and build us up to better His Kingdom here on earth. A report is to only be a warning and a basis of prayer for our life. Faith and unbelief cannot operate together.
Let us determine today to start our New Year with a renewed confidence in our being through faith in Christ Jesus and discipline our self to live in faith believing. We are destined to be victorious and to be filled with His power. Only you can separate yourself from the love and care of God the Father. Only you.
This year go through your issues quickly with the wisdom of Christ and the Word.
Let go of offenses immediately.( Remember that you also offend and you want forgiveness as well). Forgive!!  Stop being a victim. Start being victorious. 
- Pastor Sandi

Prayer:
O Lord thank you for those who encourage and give thanks for others and for the gifts you have given them. We are to be thankful for each other, for this family of God that we come into through Jesus Christ, for our brothers and our sisters and for those who show kindness and goodness to us who don't yet know you. Thankyou for those who encourage us and speak wisdoms to us. May you bless each on with the saving knowledge of Christ and may their needs be met in you.
Amen

Ephesians 1:15-16  For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and your love for all God's people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.
1 Thessalonians 5:11  Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
Hebrews 10:24  And let us consider how we may spur one another on towards love and good deeds
Hebrews 3:13  But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called "Today", so that none of you ay be hardened by sin's deceitfulness.
