List Benefits From Offenses
What do you do if you forgive an offender and verbally ask God to bless him but you still feel the emotional pain and keep reliving the offense?
If we want to experience complete freedom from past hurts, there is a vital step that must be carried out.
If we fail to see the benefits that God intended for allowing an offense to happen, we will find it difficult to rejoice.
We are commanded to rejoice in all things. This includes trials, tribulations, persecutions, false accusations, and all other offenses. (See I Peter 4:13 and Matthew 5:12.) A powerful way to do this is to ask yourself why God might have allowed it to happen.
