Here’s a thought. Another word for history is, “record.” 1 Corinthians 13, one of the most well-known passages of Scripture on love, tells us in verse 5 that loves keeps no record of wrongs. In the KJV version, it says, “thinketh no evil.” And “thinketh” means, “to keep a log of, to calculate, to compute.”
The sobering thought for us to meditate on this week is dealing with the records in our heart, the calculations we have about a person. And a lot of these calculations have been there for years. Unresolved issues lying dormant inside of us are eating away at the health of our soul.
What issues have you allowed to fester within? Who have you not released to the Father? Do you find yourself not dealing with things but putting them off continually? Why do you believe this is ok to do?
I challenge you that once a legitimate wrong stings your heart, run to the Presence of God and ask Him to help you with it immediately. We don’t need old history books in our hearts of grudges and offenses that are collecting dust because they’ve been there for so long.
It’s time to get cleaned out so we will not view people and life through the lenses of pain. Selah.
