you have the Damascus Sword hanging over your head

Do you have the Damascus sword hanging over your head?

When you have done someone wrong and refuse to repent, that is when you have the Damascus Sword hanging over your head.

Remember when an arrogant king had a meeting with the king of Damascus and bragged about all of his army and cavalry? The king informed him to look up. There hanging by a thread over his head was the Damascus Sword.

So to it is with your arrogant attitude that you think you got away with it and won’t be punished. God hangs that sword over your head and that string can be let loose at any time.

The Lord is longsuffering and abundant in mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He by no means clears the guilty. —Numbers 14:18

The offended person may have forgiven you (yes we need to forgive and only by the grace of God can we be healed.) however, if you do not repent, you will face the consequences.

Repent: to turn from sin and dedicate oneself to the amendment of one's life 2a: to feel regret or contrition b: to change one's mind Webster’s Dictionary

When you repent and are reconciled to God, then go make your peace with the man or woman you have offended. When you do this it will remove that sword hanging above your head.

God has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.”
2 Corinthians 5:19-20

Reconcile: to restore to friendship or harmony Webster’s Dictionary

Prayer: Please my beloved Heavenly Father guide me how to reconcile with You and with___________ (fill in the name of someone you have wronged) In the name of our wonderful reconciler Jesus Christ we pray. Amen


May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ love bless you today and every day

      Hi teaches.

      I thank God so many times a day it can't be counted.

      The hardest thing for me to teach is repentence and forgiveness, but my kids watch me and I try to teach them

      We as teachers and parents must always set the example.

      Thank you for your comment

      God bless you.

      I thank God for his mercy every day. As you mentioned, sometimes we do not realize that sword is hanging over our heads. Forgiveness goes a long way in making things align with His favor and love.
