30 Days of Praise and Thanksgiving: Day 18

Day 18: God forgave me so I can forgive others.

“Praise Me for the good things I am teaching you through your most difficult relationships.” [The 30 Day Praise Challenge by Becky Harling] Oh Poppa! He was sure stepping all over my toes with that one. Some of these people are condescending, rude, just not even the slightest bit nice. Another excerpt from the book reads, “You become more like Me every time you offer mercy instead of judgment. When you dare to praise Me for the difficult people in your life, I receive honor and glory, and you receive blessing.” “Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.” ~ 1 Peter 3:9 But Poppa, they are just going to continue going unchecked; thinking running rough shot over people makes them so powerful. It just seems so unfair! “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose.” ~ Romans 8:28 It doesn’t really matter what they think. Don’t bring yourself to their level. “Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.” ~ Psalm 37:8 Yes, I’ve thought long and hard on this today. Poppa, help me to be more like You. Protect me during those times when their actions and words sting. “8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings, 9 From the wicked that oppress me, [from] my deadly enemies, [who] compass me about.” ~ Psalm 17:8-9 Forgiving the difficult people in our life isn’t easy, but necessary. From now on I’m going to look at those situations and ask Lord what are you trying to teach me here? Then I’m going to praise Him for the good things I’m gleaning from seemingly impossible people! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

❤️ Thank You Father God for forgiving me so that I can forgive others. ❤️

Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: ~ Luke 6:37

Judge not, that ye be not judged. ~ Matthew 7:1

For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: ~ Matthew 6:14

6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: 7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: ~ 1 Peter 1:6-7

For with God nothing shall be impossible. ~ Luke 1:37

But [it is] good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works. ~ Psalm 73:28
