God is not surprised nor dismayed, nor should we be. He told Joshua “Do not fear and do not be dismayed.” (Joshua 8:1, ESV)
“List the emotions that you struggled with in the last year.
Who do you need to forgive from the past year (or beyond)?
Now, take a moment or two and pray about the last two questions. If forgiveness is an issue for you in any respect, pause and pray by name for those damaged relationships that you have.
Remember: On the cross, Jesus said “It is finished.”
Our sin is PAID FOR!”
