Walls Of Unforgiveness

You harden your heart to protect yourself from pain and emotional stress. With each brick laid, in the foundation, of that wall you are building your own cell, your own cage, your own prison. One day..one comes to realize that wall to protect becomes the wall that kills. The walls kill your spirit, kill your joy, and physically alters your health and emotions. Then it’s like man, why has God done this to me? He DID NOT! You did!! He WILL help you fix the problem but you must be honest with God, yourself and more than likely a trustworthy friend.

The healing is what hurts, but if you had done it right the first time around you would not be going through this. The healing should have happened before the first brick was laid. The Bible is VERY clear on this issue.

James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray for one another, that ye may be healed…..

Jesus, himself expresses this in how we should pray by the Lord’s prayer in Matthew 6:12 And forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. He then goes on to say in verse 14 & 15 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; But if you forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Wherever you pray is your altar and prayer is a spiritual act/gift of worship.

Matthew 5:23,24 Therefore, if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there remember that thy brother has anything against thee, Leave your gift at the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

So if you are holding on to anger towards your spouse, child, family member or friend first go and be reconciled, then bring your gift of praise through prayer to the Father. If you have sinned against someone go, ask for forgiveness, be reconciled. Allow the Lord to heal you to where the bricks of the wall start to crumble one by one, sin by sin, day by day, moment by moment, forgiveness by forgiveness, humbleness by humbleness until they are gone and you are not surrounded by a wall of bricks but standing on a foundation of solid rock..JESUS CHRIST

  1. I was asked by someone very special to me recently, why I liked this post so much….. I have read this post several times now. It has in some sence, brought me closer to who I want to be who I should be , and the woman I need to be. I’ve had walls built around me in fear that I would be hurt, or pushed away, and yes at times I have been. Also I’ve had doubts of my worth. My faith became thin, and I began to lock myself up in the walls I built, not realizing at that time how wrong that was. Thanks to you Stu, for sharing this post, the walls I’ve built in fear, are beginning to come crumbling down. I know my worth, I know that even though I’ve had some struggles and i have made mistakes along the way, God still loves me and he is still beside me to comfort me, to keep me strong, and to guide me through every obstacle I must endure. I have found peace and my heart is open to him ,and all good things . I’ve learned to forgive others that’s caused pain towards me. I have for the first time in a long time, feel that I can accomplish anything as long as I keep God in my heart. No matter what may be in my future, I leave it to God to show me the way. Thank you Stu . God bless you.
