Renewing the Confidence of Forgiveness

Confidence in the fundamental pillars of life will help us to move forward with our learning. Find out how to reconnect with your inner confidence in the following article.

"Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. Through him everyone who believes is set free from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law of Moses." Acts 13:38-39

Reinforcing the pillars of life, we will find that one of the most important to reinforce when moving forward with adversities and complex situation scenarios is love.

Because in the end every response leads to love. Love for the Lord who teaches us day by day through his example.

The love with which the Heavenly Father approaches us drives us to go further and to be better people.

It is then love as a response to all the legacy with which God blesses us. His message is clearer and more lasting from the vision of love. It turns out to be better heard and better transmitted if we do and say things with the love and hope necessary to grow and learn from the Holy Spirit.

"Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times." Matthew 18:21-22

The humility with which we move and move forward in the daily decisions of life will help us to reconnect with those people around us who show us ways to live life in a different way.

Being able to dispose of our mind and our feelings in an open and receptive way will help us to understand those who offend us and many times may say or do something out of place.

Making the decision to walk on the path of light of the Lord, will enlighten us to act and understand that people who are in this moment need a lot of humility to recognize the mistake made and, for our part, humility is also needed to put aside the offense and focus on our path of self-improvement.

"if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14

By attempting to forgive those who offend us, we may truly discover a version of ourselves that we may have forgotten in the past. 

Truly forgiving is not an easy task to accomplish and, what's more, it involves a huge commitment on our part over the long haul.

Beginning with an aspect that honestly escapes all logic but, as the Lord often does, is put into practice in a different way.

Building the necessary empathy for those who offend us means putting ourselves in their place, so that we can truly understand their needs and motives in life.

God reminds us in the Bible to just remember how He turned His other cheek to those who offended Him, in order to show them that in reality there are many ways to connect with them from love.

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7

Finally, and most importantly, in order to strengthen the pillars of acceptance, empathy and forgiveness towards others, is gratitude.

To be thankful, to ask for help in situations that seem problematic in our lives, but which in reality are events and moments where we seek to test ourselves and learn from the Holy Spirit.

It presupposes an act of humility necessary to move forward and overcome those barriers of prejudice that do so much harm. Our Heavenly Father helps us to grow internally, to expand our love and heart full of faith and hope.

Considering the importance of thankfulness as something that allows us to believe more and more in the universal healing of the Holy Spirit.
