Greetings:

2013 Spirit Realm Theme is “Walking in Obedience”

“Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us” (Luke 11:4a, NIV).

Walking in Forgiveness: A few months ago I purchased a new cell phone in order to better commuicate; with people, social network and surf the net. I have discovered that my conversations are often blocked because of the sensitive mute button that pops up on the screen. Prayer is our communication line to God. The more we pray to Him, the more our communication (verbal and receptive) enhances. Unforgiveness is like the mute button on the cell phone. It blocks communication with our forgiving God.

“Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled unto them; then come and offer your gift” (Matthew 5:23-24).

Spiritual Manifestation: How many times have you gone to the altar at church or your prayer closet expecting to hear God’s voice, His guidance in your situation? Every time we pray to God we should expect results or else we are praying in vain. In His model prayer, Jesus commands forgiveness. In His Sermon on the Mount, Jesus uplifts the ministry of reconciliation above the ministry of giving. I encourage you to take a process that admittedly, I found very difficult, yet rewarding: forgiving the person you don’t want to forgive the most. Once you do this it will be easier to walk in forgiveness with others. Your prayer life will instantly become more effective because you will be more like Christ and you would have decided to Walk in Obedience!

With Love in the Spirit,
—Evangelist Shulanda J Hastings
