Reasons You Should not to Be Concerned When a Man Cannot Forgive
Don’t trouble yourself when man cannot forgive, give him to God! There are some genres of evil, pride and mental dysfunction that may never be resolved in this lifetime. If or when we encounter people so damaged that reaching them appears to be a loss cause the problem is too complex for us to solve. Lacking the expertise or ability is not a reason to feel impotent. Then more than ever it is important to remember that the battle is not ours it’s the Lords.
Colossians 3:13 – Bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. Matthew 6:12 – From the Lord’s Prayer – “And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.”
Scripture addresses many incidents of human error. While some may have been deemed as irredeemable, they do not prohibit us from asking God for forgiveness. Accordingly, a belief that asking for forgiveness for a particular transgression is futile is foolish.
It would be better to ask for forgiveness even if seemingly unforgivable deeds have been committed, than to not ask because you do not believe that God will forgive. Often times people use willing“sinful indulgence” as an excuse to not seek the Lord’s forgiveness. That’s no reason to not go to God in prayer: anybody who has sinned once willfully did so.
Nobody knows what the Father will not forgive with absolute certainty. Perhaps that’s because man’s perception is not on the same level as Gods. For this reason, we should never give up on ourselves by giving Satan control of our lives.
