We have all failed and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). It seems, sometimes, that the hardest thing to do, is to forgive ourselves. God paid the highest price of all which was His Son dying to set us free on that cross (John 3:16). It was that sacrifice which has set us free from chains that bind us. Who are we to hold on to past sins, that we have done, when God has removed them from us as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103:12)? They are gone. Listen, whom the Son sets free, he is free indeed (John 8:36).
So now what, you may say. You might be wondering why you can’t forgive yourself. I would say it is a little bit satan and a little bit flesh. Just plain human memories sometimes cause the pain. So, what do we do?
We ask God to help us to forgive ourselves. The burden isn’t ours to carry. We were meant for so much more. God is faithful. He will take away that pain, hurt, or regret that you are carrying (Matthew 11:28-29).
Pray with me please for release of heavy burdens
Father thank You for being so awesome, loving and forgiving. We could never praise You enough for all that You are and all that You do. There are so many things You have done, Lord, and we don’t even know. I just want to thank You for that.
I come before You today with humbled heart asking You for release from this heavy burden that I have carried for way too long. Lord, please take this memory of sin, that keeps me down, remove it far from me. Enable me to cast it aside, if and when satan or any of his demons try to bring it back up, enable me to say, “get away from me satan that was nailed to the cross.” Give me the ability to forgive myself for I know that You truly forgive me. Today, I claim my freedom in Jesus’ name.
We are instructed to bear one another’s burdens, (Galatians 6:2) so if there are any prayer requests feel free to leave them in the comment section. I would be honored to pray with you. If it is more private you can always contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org I check that every day. Blessings to you all, till we meet again, tomorrow, if the Lord is willing. Peace.
