Hindrance 6: Unforgiveness

Mark 11:25-26 "And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins." NIV

Jesus is clear about this, if we cannot forgive the sins of others, God cannot forgive us. If we cannot forgive those who hurt us, God cannot forgive us.

Job 42:10 "After Job had prayed for his friends, the LORD made him prosperous again and gave him twice as much as he had before." NIV

Job underwent terrible trials. Some pretending friends came to give him advice, but in reality they were blaming his sins for all his calamities. Only after Job forgave them and started to pray for them, was He finally restored to full health. Here is a clear connection between forgiveness and healing.

Have you forgiven those who hurt you? Follow Jesus' example. You cannot go wrong when you do.

Luke 23:34 "Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." And they divided up his clothes by casting lots." NIV
