And in my devotion today, I was being presented with this message from God. He can't be more timely than this. In His mysterious ways, He always never fail to let me know what He expects from me because I've asked Him to reveal to me.
23 “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, 24 leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift." ~ Matthew 5:23-24Having been prompted by His Spirit and His Word, there's no way I can run away from what is necessary for me to do. That is, to trust the Spirit's conviction to me and obey what He has asked me to do. It doesn't matter who was in the wrong in the situations that I developed the resentment or grudge, it is the willingness on my part to submit to God in His authority to know what is the best thing for me to do.
The very first step I've taken is to write an apology card to someone whom I was upset with since the beginning of this year for her stubbornness and insistence of doing some things her way which obviously I didn't agree to. I have resented her for more than 6 months now and I haven't been in talking terms with her. This isn't easy for me given that I didn't think I was in the wrong but it is the Lord that I am doing this for and I know for sure this is for my own good to release the resentment and to forgive in order to restore the relationship once again.
