Because we need forgiveness from God, we must, therefore, forgive our fellow human beings for their evil ways.
However, there are times when the Devil caused people to push you to limits that make it virtually impossible to offer forgiveness to those individuals, But remember that God through Jesus continually forgives you of your sins. We have to find it in our hearts to forgive those who wrong you.
Forgiveness is letting go and building the confidence necessary to experience healthy and positive growth. It is deciding that you will no longer be locked in the past as a victim of circumstances. You will not perpetuate unhealthy lifestyle through blame and anger. That you will instead access the strength and love that God gives you to fulfil the unique purpose for which you were, created.
What does the Bible tell us about forgiveness?

Everlasting God, I know that you will be the conscience I need to overcome all adversities and allow me to forgive. Father, I am asking for your help to assist my family in all that they require and that if I am unable to fulfil the obligation that they too will forgive me, in Jesus name Amen.
