Closing the Door on Bitterness
Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman
There’s a price to be paid for holding onto bitterness! Most people think that if their grudge is justified, they have the right to nurture it. Sometimes life can hurt, and anger does spring up, but that resentment can take a horrible toll on one’s life—in relationships, health and even with our fellowship with FATHER GOD!
Lingering bitterness will always bring destruction and harm to those around us. It breaks our fellowship with GOD and robs us of peace! It can lead to emotional isolation, frustration and anxiety. If left unattended, it can bring total fatigue and depression. And worst of all, it grieves ABBA!
He can not pour all His blessings on an angry person. As a child of God Most High (Elyon (Hebrew: עֶלְיוֹן ʿElyōn), we have Kingdom work to do, and this will hinder that work!
When angry; do not sin, do not ever let your wrath last until the sun goes down.
One thing is certain, letting go of anger will keep you from self-destruction! Ask for the Holy Spirit’s leading and help with letting go of any lingering anger! You will put a smile on GOD’S face, and you will be filled with peace!
Love & Blessings,
Pastor Bruce and Suzi Elman
