Today's daily words of encouragement word is Forsake: Forsake means to let go of something, or stop doing something. In other words it means to let go of ungodly habits and clean up our spiritual life. It means to give up sin and iniquities. I would be lying if I said, we can live our lives without sin ; but we can live our lives as close as possible to sin free by living for God. If we didn't have sin and iniquities to fight against we wouldn't have a reason for prayers and forgiveness.
So, we have to rid our selves of things that's keeping us from living a godly life . Let go of the hatred and replace it with the love of God. Let go of anger and replace it with love and peace of mind. Let go of any obstacle that's keeping us from living according to Gods word.
