This morning, the following paragraph from Joyce Meyer's devotion jumped off the page: "I want to encourage you today to bless the people who have hurt you by praying for them, even though you may feel hurt and irritated by them. When you pray for people who have hurt you, it's a choice you make. And forgiveness is based on your decision - not a feeling. But there's healing in that for you."
Read that last phrase again, "But there's healing in that for you." We have received an impartation for health, wealth and miracles during these "Seventy Days of Blessing." But these are not automatic impartations. God releases His rich and grace-filled blessings into our chaotic lives. Those blessings come into their fullest manifestation when we come into God's order, plan, destiny and direction for our lives. His order is this: When we bless and forgive those who have wronged us, our lives will come into their full blessing and healing!
"'Be angry, and do not sin' - do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil" (Ephesians 4:26, 27).
