A Note on Bitterness

A Note on Bitterness

When you ask God to come in and evaluate your life, He begins to show you the areas of your life that may be clogging your potential and ability to hear from Him.

So many people have been hurt to their core. Hurt, anger, and bitterness holds us captive and unable to move. We are justified by our reasoning but are in serious need of letting go so that we can be released into things of God.

Feeding families, ministers leaving the church to start their own ministries and taking your members, stealing husbands and girlfriends. We may think it is not fair and seek to go after our own justice nurturing the hurt while injuring ourselves in the process.

So many of us have been hurt so much but we retreated from the very things we are supposed to pursue and use the pain to build walls and thus have become isolated and lost the ability to be relational.

God loves us so much and He wants us to be sensitive to His voice so that we can become sensitive once again to His people.

When we forgive, God opens the doors! Often the ones who have hurt us will bless us! Forgive so God can forgive you and most importantly use you.

Orphans walk with one eye present to be among the living, but a constant twitching in the eye because at any moment they made be yanked back into a system of bondage that they desparately want to escape. Traveling around from here to there with a stack of luggage on their back, if not visable to the eye, it is emotional weight that constantly feeds the track of their minds with full occupants in a race, going round and round, and around. These mental demons are on a treadmill attacking confidence, belonging, identify, inheritance, healing, and a possible future of peace.

This is the orphan spirit. A behavior that manfests what we belive we are not entitled to because we are unworthy to recieve such an awesome gift from a loving God. There is no need to prove yourself to your Daddy God. He knows what you are capable of whether you are holding a gun in your hand, a bag of weed, or a can of Bud Light burping incessiantly. God loves you and He does have a plan for your life. Associate yourself with the belief that no matter what I have done, Daddy God still loves me and has a place for me in His kingdom. Desire to be there and turn away from your current activity knowing that you have been adopted.
