|Today you will see that My strength never fails you. For many days you have felt that your progress was so slow, but from today forward, you will soar swiftly like an eagle in the sky. But I am asking one thing of you today, that you would learn to forgive, even as I have forgiven you. The gift I give to you that will make you fly, is the gift of forgiveness. Freely take this gift and give it away. I have died for all and forgiven My enemies, even praying for those who pierced Me.
You will find in heaven many people that will surprise you, for in their later years I came to them with this gift and they received Me as their Redeemer, the One who took away their sin. Now today you will extend a hand of mercy to those who have pierced you, those who have brought pain into your life. For as you forgive you will fly.
You will taste the gift of mercy as never before, but only as you give this gift of mercy to others. I will take that dark veil away from your heart and you will begin to see others in the light of grace, the beautiful light of mercy. Even as I have freely forgiven the most vile offender, I call you to walk with Me and find that My strength will not fail you– the strength to forgive. This is the new ministry I am calling you to embrace. You will need My grace to accept this calling but it will bring life into your soul, for My life will cause you to overflow with great love expressed as you forgive.
Today you will have opportunities to say the words that I once spoke and My servant Stephen also spoke, “Father, forgive them.” As you release this forgiveness I will release the pain from your heart and you not feel it again. My grace will wash and cleanse and empower you to forgive and forgive and forgive, until you no longer keep records of wrongs against you.
Even as I cooked breakfast for the one who denied Me three times, you will show mercy. Today you will learn that My strength will never fail you, for you will taste the sweetness of My mercy.
