This life is full of ups and downs which are absolute cause by men, the way this world system is running can sometimes frustrate human beings especially when you don’t have the mind of Christ. This has made people to always transfer aggression to others from what life has given them, that how people begin to hurt their other fellow, so it continue like that except for those that have better understanding.
In order to relief this pain people tend to console themselves by putting on some attitude thinking that could take away their pain but I tell you that some of this things are techniques that can only relief you for awhile not forever except you take the right step. This includes:
- Coping mechanisms.
This is by providing temporary relief. Deceive us into thinking we are healed when in fact we are only camouflaging the pain with work, alcohol, church, sex or drugs.
This is the erroneous idea that hurting the person will heal the victim. In reality, hurting me won’t heal you. It just lowers you to the level of the perpetrator!
Now, you’ve forsaken the eligibility to get Gods vindication became he’s not going to handle what you’ve decided to do on your own.
- Self – Deception
I don’t care. Gradually the rage turns inside. Anger turned inside is what depression is made of!
Now, I am sure that the question in your mind is if all these are erroneous ways of healing pain, then what the right ways of doing it are. Well I tell you, it just one way and this might look very hard or unbelievable to say. But I tell you that this the best way you can heal your pain. And that way is FORGIVENESS.
Yes Forgiveness, I know it is very difficult to say but that’s the truth actually, just have to forgive and let it go.
I know someone will be like what if the person continues to hurt; you just have to continue to forgive and move on. That was what Jesus told his disciple in Luke 17:3-4 Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. 4 And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.
It is not easy though but you just have to for your own sake. What you need now is increasing your faith to forgive. Because the apostles had the understanding that they only need divine ability to forgive that is why they asked Jesus is verse 5 to increase their faith.
You increase your faith because;
- Faith looks forward that is, you can easily move on believing their there is greater glory ahead of you.
- Faith isn’t sensual (Unseen)
- Faith grows from Word.
