Forgiveness

“You can’t love with unforgiveness in your heart…Who do you need to forgive?  Other people, yourself…and this may sound strange, but God. You’d be surprised how many people are mad at God. They’d never admit it, because you don’t want to say, “Well, I’m mad at God.” Well, maybe a few would, but…That’s a really dangerous thing to be mad at the only one that can help you.

And why do we get mad at God? Because we had a plan for our life, and we prayed, and we believed, and we were good, and we tithed, and we went to church, and we did good works, and we didn’t get what we wanted. And not only that, somebody else we know that is a lot less spiritual than us got what we wanted. Now there you have it: the religious, Pharisee, self-righteous spirit that God despises.

So you’d better forgive God if you’re mad at Him, because He’s smarter than you are, and He’s got a good plan for you life, and man’s mind plans his way, but God directs his steps. And excuse me, but it’s just dumb to be mad at God. Because God is good no matter what happens to us in our lives, God is good. And, yes, we get disappointed when we don’t get things our way and there are things that don’t seem right and there are things that don’t seem fair but I am telling you, if you will keep your eyes on God and keep wanting His will and His way, He will make wrong things right, and God will reward you…” ~Joyce Meyer
