Then Jesus said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.” (Luke 7v48 NIV)
Your sins are forgiven.
Step one: Repeat after me. I…am…totally…completely…forgiven.
Step two: Rejoice and rejoice well.
Be exceedingly happy.
Doing this puts everything into perspective.
Step three: Expect Him to shower you with His love.
Here is a really good question; how happy are you?
Ask God to show you what that means and what that looks like.
There is joy, peace and deep contentment available through rejoicing.
How can you be happy if you are in the middle of a crisis or you are depressed?
The answer is more than a quick fix.
He has the answer to every situation.
You have an ability to rejoice in every and in all situations and circumstances.
That is an act of your will, based on faith not a feeling.
Start thanking Him for things even when they are a struggle.
Thank Him for the opportunities this presents even when they are a challenge.
Pick a situation and ask Him how He sees it.
Ask Him to show you what good is coming out of it.
What upgrades you are going to get.
He is going to upgrade you through your challenges.
If He has forgiven you, forgive yourself and forgive everyone else, unconditionally.
