Words of Wisdom — The Case of Bitterness

There are some of you that are struggling with unforgiveness and bitterness towards people that have wronged you.

There are some of you who are struggling with unforgiveness and bitterness towards people who have wronged you.

I understand, I really do. I had gotten to that point and could not forgive, no matter how and what I tried.

Finally, after much heartache and bitterness of the soul, The LORD invaded my thoughts and I simply asked for The Grace of God to help me forgive.

Over a few weeks of asking for grace to forgive, The LORD helped me to understand and to walk this out.

He gave me the strength to let it all go.

I also found out that bitterness not only hurt me, but it hurt others and defiled many. It’s like being sick with a crippling disease that spreads to others.

Bitterness has the same results and it spreads to others even those we love.

“Looking diligently lest any man fails of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled,” Hebrews 12:15.

We can infect people or affect people if we fail to learn that God’s Grace covers a multitude of sin and iniquity. Not only does it infect us — but it also will infect others.

When we get this revelation of Grace, it makes us sufficient in all ways.

I hope some Word I shared has helped. God bless you!


In HIS Grace and Mercy,
