GOT A LIST?  4/21/09 


Today in the car I was thinking about what the Lord meant when He said, “Keep a short list”  in regards to apologies.  I realized He was saying that when offenses happen, we need to keep a short list by forgiving and not bringing up a list of past offenses, and also keep a short list of having the need to be forgiven. 


I wondered about the idea that of having a list at all, and then I realized that all of us are blind in one way of another and so we all probably have a list of things we are not forgiven of until the Lord opens our eyes and we make right.  And secondly, the blasphemy against the Holy is not forgiven in this life of the world to come. 


Scripture says that when we love someone, it keeps no record or having been wronged. 


1 Cor 13:5  NLT

Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged.


1 Cor 13:5  AMP takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong].


So while I was driving in the car, I searched my heart about all the major stumbling blocks that the enemy has used to trip me up.  And I verbally confessed once again with a free heart, that I had forgiven those offenses and I had not even a twinge of feelings about them and barely could remember them.  It was a very good feeling to see how I had progressed over deep feelings of loss, mourning and grief.


When I arrived at Fred Meyer I noticed a large truck that was re-doing their billboard sign.  The only words on the sign were, “What’s on your list today?”


Ps 40:5 NLT

O LORD my God, you have done many miracles for us. Your plans for us are too numerous to list.  If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds, I would never come to the end of them.
