"As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come" (Prov. 26:2).

If you were to leave the front door of your home wide open, any kind of animal—even a skunk—could walk right in. Spiritually speaking, Christians sometimes leave a "door" open to their lives for the enemy's "skunk" to enter.

Perhaps you're having trouble with obstacles the devil keeps throwing your way and you've done everything you know to do. Well, check to see if you've left a door open.

By that I mean, for instance, are you walking in love? Are you harboring unforgiveness in your heart toward anyone?

You see, unforgiveness stops faith from working, because faith works by love, and love always forgives (Gal. 5:6). We may be trying to believe God for healing. But if we harbor unforgiveness in our hearts, our faith will not work.

Sometimes people think they just can't forgive. They claim that the devil just won't let them. No, it isn't the devil who won't let people forgive; it's their own flesh—and the flesh can always be put under.

Forgiveness is not a feeling; it's a decision. We may have to reinforce that commitment to forgive again and again, but it's well worth the effort. When we keep all our doors shut, no skunks can get in to steal our blessings!

I refuse to walk in unforgiveness and open the door to the
devil. I won't allow the enemy's curse to come back on me.
I choose to forgive, no matter what anyone does. I walk in love!
