REMOVING A MAJOR BARRIER



There is a major barrier that can hinder the divine provision of God from flowing into

your life. You must eliminate it not only in order to receive financial blessings, but also

to be able to fulfill your destiny. Let’s start with the revelation from the Word:


"Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar , and there rememberest that thy brother hath

ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar and go thy way; first be

reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift" (Matthew 5:23-24).


Did you recognize the barrier? God’s Word declares that if you bring your gift to the

altar and there is anything wrong between you and another person, you are to first be

reconciled to them and then offer your gift. If you are presenting your gifts with an

unforgiving heart, they will not be accepted. Forgiveness is not just a reluctant

handshake, a forced smile, and mumbled words. It is a true change in feelings and

attitudes that comes from deep inside your spirit. The fault is swept away and its negative

influence on your emotions, thoughts, and actions cease. You can only do this when you

have been forgiven yourself and you understand the true concept of forgiveness. Here are

five practical steps to extend forgiveness to others and open the way for your gifts to God

and your blessings from Him to be received:


Step one: Deal with your anger. When you are hurt, anger often results. If you try to

forgive before you have dealt with your anger, then forgiveness will not be genuine and

will not last. Ask God for forgiveness for your anger.


Step two: Accept what happened. It is sometimes difficult to come to terms with the

reality of the hurts you have experienced. You hope that everything will return to normal,

but it won't. You must accept that the incident happened. You cannot undo it. You cannot

dismiss it. You cannot return to how it was before the problem happened.


Step three: Recognize that the offender is valuable to God. The offender, like us all,

is flawed because they are human. Do not minimize the evil they have done, but consider

their positive points, their strengths, and their potential. Try to see them as God sees

them, as valuable, important, and lovable despite their sins.


Step four: Acknowledge your part in the offense. In human interaction, it is rare for a

broken relationship to be totally the fault of one person. Admit your part in the offence

and seek forgiveness from God and the offended person.


Step five: Offer unrestricted forgiveness. God's forgiveness is offered without any

conditions, despite His full awareness that we are completely untrustworthy beings who

will fail again in the future. Do not demand any guarantees from the person to whom you

are offering forgiveness. Forgive as God has forgiven you. Do you harbor

unforgiveness against someone? Does someone have something against you? Deal with

these issues, then bring your gifts of finances, time, and talents, and present them to God.


PRAYER:


My FATHER, My God, this year let my life reflect the blessing of the Lord, I shall not be static, I decree PROGRESS, FAVOR, HONOR, AND INFLUENCE are my portion. My life is SALTED, My speech is SALTED, My Home and Business are SALTED in the name of Jesus.
