In her book The Gift of Forgiveness, Denise Renner describes the power God has given the believer to release or to retain offenses that others commit against you. When you choose to forgive, you free not only yourself but also the other person from the oppression the enemy has brought to bear in the situation. You may not feel like forgiving the other person. You may not even want God to forgive him or her. But until you choose to walk in forgiveness, you are choosing to walk contrary to God. The blood of Jesus has been shed to free you and the person who wounded you. Get in agreement with God and forgive. When you do, you ll experience the power of God come on the scene to meet your need. The Gift of Forgiveness will help you take your first step outside the walls of offense that have hindered you in the past.
