Against Anyone by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 06/01/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When should we forgive? Here’s what Jesus said: “When you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”

“When you stand praying,” when you go to church, when you’re in a prayer meeting, or when you’re having your quiet time—is there some issue that comes to mind? Is there some unresolved conflict that hinders your conversation with the Lord?

“If you hold anything against anyone . . .” Now that covers all the bases. It includes every possible offense that I might be holding in my heart.

Jesus is saying, “When you come and talk to your heavenly Father, if you hold anything against anyone, before you keep on praying, forgive that person. Forgive him so that your Father may forgive your sins.”

The next time you have your quiet time, start by asking God if you need to offer some forgiveness.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
