Are You Bitter?

Are You Bitter?

What eats at the gut of your soul my friend? Could it be bitterness? It can be done away with if you continue to spend time with the Lord in prayer and in His Word. Ask God to help you.

Hebrews 12:1 says, “Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

If you continue to look at the person or problem that has hurt you, bitterness can last. Oh my friend, fix your eyes on Jesus. Ask God to open the eyes of your understanding. Beloved, you’re standing in God’s adequacy for every situation of life.

2 Corinthians 12:9 promises, “My grace is sufficient for you; for power is perfected in weakness."
