A Good Devotion That I Read Today!

As we head to thanksgiving I always think of God's goodness and how thankful I am that I am forgiven and free. It's a blessing to be able to receive forgiveness and also a great blessing to give it. Check out this devotional I read from Joel Osteen today and ask God if there is someone that you need to bless with forgiveness this week.

The Blessing of Forgiveness
Today's Scripture

“Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered” (Psalm 32:1, NIV).

Today's Word from Joel and Victoria

The scripture is filled with keys to obtaining God’s promise of blessing. It says here in Psalm 32 that you are blessed when your transgressions are forgiven. God extends forgiveness to everyone, but we have to do our part to receive the forgiveness. We have to repent, or change our ways, with open hearts. The Bible also tells us that if we don’t forgive others of their trespasses against us, we cannot be forgiven. Is there anyone in your life today that you need to forgive? Is there someone who has hurt or wronged you? Make the decision to forgive so that you can walk in the blessing of God’s forgiveness for you. Remember, forgiveness doesn’t condone wrong behavior. It simply releases the person from the debt they owe you so that God can release you from the debt you owe from your own transgressions. When you make the choice to forgive and allow God to heal your heart, you will be able to receive His forgiveness for you, and you will walk in His abundant blessing all the days of your life.

A Prayer for Today

Heavenly Father, thank You for the promise of blessing in my life. I open my heart to You and ask that You cleanse me of anything that isn’t pleasing to You. Search me and show me if there is any unforgiveness in my heart so that I can release it and walk in Your blessing for me today. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
