• “He will enable you to overcome the giants in your temperament …He allows adversity and trial in our lives in order to reveal our true nature to us. Thus He humbles us and breaks us, so that He can transform us into His likeness.” – Annie Poonen

Neither Will Your Father by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 02/13/12

“Here’s Nancy Leigh DeMoss with counsel on choosing forgiveness.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Jesus offers some strong words in Matthew 6. He says, “If you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”

John Piper reflected on this thought and said, “If we hold fast to an unforgiving spirit, we will not be forgiven by God. If we continue on in that way, then we will not go to heaven because heaven is the dwelling place of forgiven people.”

I think one of the biggest reasons people find it difficult to accept and experience God’s love and forgiveness is a refusal to forgive others.

If we’re holding on to bitterness, we can never hope to enjoy the full, sweet taste of God’s compassion and mercy. Would you choose to forgive those who have wronged you and experience the forgiveness of your Father?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “Experience has taught me that the Shepherd is far more willing to show His sheep the path than the sheep are to follow. He is endlessly merciful, patient, tender, and loving. If we, His stupid and wayward sheep, really want to be led, we will without fail be led. Of that I am sure.” – Elisabeth Elliot
