How to Forgive Yourself A Summer Series, Day 1

Most people find it difficult to forgive themselves for the things they have done wrong. They feel they must pay for their sins themselves, somehow. But that is something you cannot do. There must be a spotless sacrifice offered, and you and I are not spotless. Only Jesus Christ was the spotless Lamb. This becomes a vicious cycle when we can’t forgive ourselves. We feel we must pay for what we have done wrong, and then it bleeds over to where we can’t forgive others because we feel they need to pay for what they done wrong to us. We’ve got this all wrong.

Several years ago I found an amazing book called How to Forgive Ourselves – Totally, written by R.T. Kendall. After reading this book, I realized I still had unforgiveness toward myself for past failures. I grieved my heart due to regret and guilt the enemy had heaped upon me. I had allowed Satan and others to harass me in this area, but this book helped me realize none of that was from the Lord. It helped me experience another level of Jesus’ love for me I had never known. I felt closer to Him. I could literally feel His arms around me saying, “Let it go… I have. It’s all forgotten. Now go live freely and live the best life I have planned for you.” I completely embraced that, and because of that determination in my mind, I do not allow anyone else to throw up my past sins that are covered by the blood of Jesus, especially Satan! I easily put him in his place – and that is under my feet! It’s time to let yourself off the hook!

I will be sharing with you each day what this book taught me. You don’t want to miss a single day!
