Nourishment for Your Soul and Mind: August 22, 2022

I sat for a long time reading and praying for a Scripture for today’s Nourishment blog before the Lord brought me to Nahum. I am so thankful that the Lord is slow to anger and for His patience with me. I reflected on this verse for a long time. Forgiveness of others is so critical in our personal walk with God and sometimes so difficult. I was thinking back over some personal wounds and it wasn’t anger, but deep hurt that pierced that heart and made the unforgiveness so difficult. Help me Poppa. I began to reflect on Jesus and Judas and how that had to hurt. We have to forgive and love with the heart of Jesus even when that wound is still festering and ask for Jesus to pour His blood over it and cover it as a salve, a healing balm that can heal like no other! If we don’t it will continue to fester and grow until it takes root and that is just what the devil wants. In fact he will try to attack our mind and say remember that thing and how it hurt you, that hurt will begin to fester into anger and then to bitterness. But God! When you apply the blood of Jesus to it and forgiveness cleanse it out healing starts to take place. You may need to continually ask God to help you for awhile and that’s okay, He knows your heart. Give it Him and allow Him to heal you and let him take that thing done against you and turn it your favor. The Lord will fight for His children and before you know it, you will be praying for mercy on the very people that caused you pain! That is the goodness of God. We want everyone to know His mercy and love. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

The Lord is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the Lord hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.” ~ Nahum 1:3
