The two biggest enemies in your life will often be unforgiveness and fear. Both are sin and we tend to hold onto them with a tight grip. Unfortunately, when we do that. we block the blessings that we need in our lives.
Unforgiveness goes deep when we’ve been badly hurt. We may be willing to forgive small things someone has done, but if there is something that caused deep pain, we are unwilling to even touch it, let alone forgive for it. This is dangerous. Jesus was very clear: But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. (Mat 6:15) Yikes!
Fear is another favorite weapon of the enemy. For some reason, we don’t tend to think of fear as a problem for us. We think it’s acceptable to worry about things. God doesn’t agree. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. (IJohn 4:18)
If you live with fear and worry, then you haven’t had a true revelation of God and how much He loves you. If you really understood that He will take care of everything, if you let Him, you could live in peace.
Take a look at your life and see if you are holding onto unforgiveness or fear. It’s time to let go.
