BURN THAT BOOK…

“How are you tonight?” I asked the man who appeared to have Parkinson’s Disease. “Ask me after prayer,” he replied. I spoke on “Focus on the Goal” that night, and I saw him listening intently. As the team prepared to pray, I went to him. Sally and Elena were also drawn to pray for him. God had given me a word of encouragement for the gentleman. After sharing that, I moved on knowing the ladies would pray with Holy Spirit power. Later, Sally said, “His whole face transformed when you gave him that word.” I saw it, too. Sally said, “I asked if he had anyone to forgive. He said, ‘Yes. I keep a book of everyone who has ever hurt me.’” We spoke a bit and he did choose to forgive. Finally, he said, “I’m going home to burn the book!” His tremors reduced. To whom it may concern: You might be stunned to read this man kept a physical book of wrongs done to him. But how often do we excuse ourselves for writing chapters of how we were offended in our minds. Burn the book, forgive and start to live the good life God has planned for you. It’s sinful to look for satisfaction in brooding over hurts and planning revenge. Realize Satan is tempting you. Forgive others, and ask God to forgive you for holding unforgiveness. Start experiencing the fullness of life God has for you.
