10 Reasons you should forgive yourself.
You should forgive yourself because your spiritual relationship is at stake.
There is an inseparable connection between our spiritual health and a good relationship with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a very sensitive person, and we should not grieve Him. By not forgiving yourself, you will grieve the Holy Spirit. Why? Because you are holding bitterness and grudges against yourself.
I have grieved the Holy Spirit so many times that I would die a thousand deaths if you ever saw a video replay of my whole life. But you won’t, because God has forgiven my sins. The blood of Jesus has washed them all away. And the least I can do, therefore, in the light of God forgiving me, is to forgive myself.
We are God’s creation, and Satan hates what God has created. The Holy Spirit will give you positive thoughts about yourself. What comes from the Holy Spirit is the complete opposite to thoughts from the devil. Learn to recognize, refuse, and resist those negative thoughts about yourself. God has new things for you that you could not have conceived of. Behold, God told Isaiah, “I am doing a new thing!” The truth is, God isn’t finished with you yet and has much more in mind for you than you have thought! Don’t let the devil have a victory over you by telling you, “What you now have is as good as it will get!” Remember, Satan is a liar!
I pray this has helped you realize the importance of forgiving yourself. Don’t continue another day in bondage to the lies of Satan. Forgive yourself freely, completely, totally and abundantly! Let yourself “OFF THE HOOK” forever and ever and don’t look back! Live in the freedom Christ died on the cross to give to you.
Ephesians 4:31-32, “Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”
