Today is Monday, the 2 day of May in the year 2022, and our bible verse of the day will be taken from the book of 1 Peter 5:8..
For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.Mathew 6:14
Our Lord Jesus is very plain in stating the fact that we must first of all forgive those who tresspass against us, before we seek the forgiveness of the Father.
And you know as much as I do that the forgiveness of the Father is needed before we can obtain anything we need from him.
In other words, the scripture helps us to understand in the book of Isaiah 59:1 that; it is sin that prevents God from hearing our prayers.
As a matter of fact, we pray everyday to God in the hope that He would grant our heart desires and requests.
And if forgiving people is all we require for Him to hear and answer us, then why don’t we do that today and now.
Once upon a time our Lord Jesus was asked how many times we should forgive people who tresspass against us, and He replied: seventy times seven times (Mathew 18:22).
And when you add that up, you have 490 times to forgive a single human being every single day.
I don’t think there is the possibility of someone offending us that number of times in a day.
So make sure you forgive those who tresspass against you today, if you want to receive God’s forgiveness.
