Daniel 9:9 To the Lord our God belong mercy and forgiveness, though we have rebelled against Him.
We are the weak link. The Lord is the strength of our lives. My flesh naturally wants to rebel. This is equal to rebellion against God. He created us for His good pleasure, do I bring Him that? I can as I receive that mercy & forgiveness He has offered me. God our Father, wants us to have a fresh start. Why hold on to grudges or past hurts that will only harm you? God forgives us but also breaks those chains in us to forgive ourselves. That is difficult to do.
