Kingdom Forgiveness 

Matthew 6:9-15 In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom comes. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever. Amen. “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your father forgive your trespasses. 

Father thank you for modeling prayer, forgiveness, pain, suffering, redemption, and healing. Thank you for modeling the human life experience and journey that we should live. Thank you for being the example of leadership, direction, and guidance. Thank you for bestowing your gifts, talents, and presence in us. In Jesus name. Amen. 

______________________________________________________________________________There has been a cloud spirit of rejection following this week. It has been hovering since last weekend. It appeared at every turn, there was a no spoken into my space. Most recently, there was rejection from working out with a team at the health club. This was the low of the lowest because I had just been given an affirmative. Less than an hour later, via text, it was shared that the group had reached capacity. This was the lowest of the low. My mind could not comprehend. At work, it appears as if the value of information is no longer needed. Individuals continue to work in silos.  

However, daddy is always there for his children. During rejection, may I share He showed me Him. He showed me that He sees all. He showed the love He has, and favor is indeed fair. So grateful, that He is a ride or die in the simple and mundane. So grateful and thankful that the greatness He has for each of us is vastly different. So grateful and thankful that His love is all encompassing. So grateful and thankful for redemption. Real talk! You see amid it all, He took a moment to have someone dispense a compliment on work product. In the moment, He took the time to show His daughter beloved that the love of Him encourages another. Amid it all He took the time to give encouraging conversation. Amid it all, He took the time to share Himself and the redemption that is available to us all. From a heartfelt compliment to words of encouragement from a friend and co-worker. He took the time to bestow kingdom forgiveness upon mind, body, and spirit. Because the mind was in such turmoil this week, the spirit was downtrodden, and the body was impaled with unhealthy nutrients. However, with the revelation of Him, encouragement, prayer and reading His word supplied much needed nutrients to bring life to a dead situation. 


Father, we thank you for life today. We thank you that kingdom forgiveness shows us you in the midst. We are grateful Father that we get to spend another day, moment, and minute in your presence. To see you and your hand on our situation. To experience your love for us. To know that you are our all and all. To know that our circumstances, must and will change. In Jesus name. Amen.
