With death, domestic violence, sibling rivalry and race issues etc on the increase during this lockdown, there will be more and more bitterness, and long term unforgiveness and resentment in our society. Bitterness is an extremely destructive force. It can seep into the depths of your heart if you choose not to forgive someone.
Scripture tells us that if we choose not to forgive others, it will even hinder our prayers. Thank God that He has empowered us with the power to forgive and release bitterness! It all begins with a choice. You may have been through unfair situations, but itâ€™s not over until God says itâ€™s over. God always has the final say. He is a God of justice, even today during these hard times. He sees every wrong thatâ€™s ever been done to you, and every unfair situation, and He will make it right. Trust Him!
Today, If you will stay in faith and choose to forgive, God will make your wrongs right. Heâ€™ll bring justice into your life. Your attitude should be, â€œit may have been unfair. They may have done me wrong, but I refuse to get bitter. I know my time is coming.â€ Choose forgiveness, honour God and walk in complete freedom in every area of your life!
â€œGet rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.â€(Ephesians 4:31, NIV)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, today I refuse bitterness. I refuse to allow the past or present to keep me stuck. Father, take away my negative feelings towards others. Please help me right now to forgive those who have hurt me. God, I pray blessings on them, that they would come to know Your truth and their lives will be changed. In faith I thank You for setting my heart free, in Jesusâ€™ Name! Amen.
