Promise of the Day: Systems Check

Systems Check


Today’s Promise is Mark 11:25, 26 NKJV:

And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.”

Systems Check


Every prayer should begin with a systems check. Many times we harbor bitterness and unforgiveness against people and don’t see it for what it really is. Sometimes, we actually believe that we are justified in our unforgiveness, and therefore exempt from this command. Jesus makes it very clear that we cannot receive what we are unwilling to give. But God is so good, not only to give us the Holy Spirit to reveal our hidden unforgiveness, but to give us the grace we lack on our own to forgive others. This is how much He wants us to succeed. And, success is worth a daily systems check.


Heavenly Father, I want to abide in Your grace. Please, help me to remember that whatever anyone does to me, Your Son covered on the Cross, just as He covered my sin. Help me to be more concerned with the salvation of others than with my wounded pride, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Have a victorious day in the Lord!
