When someone says, ¿I can forgive, but I cannot forget,¿ they really are saying, ¿I will not forgive.¿ Unforgiveness, resentment, and bitterness are spiritual maladies that keep many people from living a Spirit-filled life. Joyce Meyer says that keeping score of all the hurts we have suffered does more spiritual damage to us than those who have offended us. In fact, we can suffer serious physical illnesses as a result of unforgiveness. Is it difficult to forgive? Absolutely, but the rewards are well worth it.
In THE POWER OF FORGIVENESS, Joyce Meyer reveals that when we choose to forgive others, we release ourselves from sin¿s power. The act of forgiving them allows God to work his will and our healing in the situation. Forgiveness in the power that will change life of defeat into one of victory.
