I was asking the LORD how that when you forgive a person, what do you do if you can’t trust them anymore?
His Words to me were that, “Jo, when you ask Me to forgive you, that is a given. I have forgiven you, but you have to earn My trust back again.
In other words — I don’t share My secrets with those whom I do not trust. Even so, when you have forgiven a person, that is what you should do, — but they must earn your trust back.
You don’t have to trust them to forgive them. Then go forward and do what you are called to do.
I will begin to convict them of what they did and will work on them. I just need your forgiveness toward them in order to do that, because, didn’t I say in My Word that whoever sins you remit they are remitted unto them?
You have the authority through forgiveness to allow Me to work on them and bring them to repentance!”
Father forgive them, for they know not what they do, and forgive us for we don’t either! Amen!
There is power in our mouths!
