Bitterness A Monster 

Monsters aren’t just in movies or video games, we can deal with monsters in our personal lives too. They can appear out of nowhere and create all kinds of destruction. Yes, they might not be destroying buildings and hurting people, but they are dangerous. If we don’t stop the monsters in our lives, they can keep us from doing everything God has in store for us. 

What’s your monster today? Maybe it’s bitterness or rage. Bitterness is so sneaky. It can show up in our lives in ways we’ve never expected. Perhaps all the time you’ve been spending with your family right now is making you bitter at your mom, dad, or siblings, over something small or stupid. It snuck up so quietly, and now, you realize that you’ve really begun to resent them. 

The thing about bitterness is that if we let it grow, it will destroy our happiness. It’s hard to be happy when you’re upset and bitter at someone or something. Even though things are probably less than ideal in your life right now, you need to decide to not become bitter. Bitterness in your life will only cause heartache, stress, and destruction. 

Today, if bitterness has grown in your life, ask God for His help. He’s ready and willing to help you in any way He can. Ask Him to show you how you can begin to let God’s love shine through you and get rid of bitterness from your life. With God’s help, we can destroy the monster of bitterness! 

Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. – Ephesians 4:31 (NLT) 

Let’s Pray 

Yahweh, I acknowledge that I’ve held resentment and bitterness in my heart. Father, I confess this and ask You to forgive me. Help me Lord, to not hold on to bitterness or resentments, but rather to love all. God, I ask You to also forgive those who hold bitterness or resentment toward me. Thank You for hearing and answering this prayer. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
