Let it Go Quickly

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE:

Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.
Ephesians 4:31, NIV

TODAY’S WORD:

Bitterness is always knocking at the door—people do you wrong, you didn’t get the promotion, you came down with an illness. You can’t stop difficult things from happening to you, but you can choose how you respond to them. If you hold on to the hurt and dwell on the offense, you open the door to bitterness, which poisons your attitude to the point where you see everything in a negative light. It will steal your dreams and rob you of your joy.

When something unfair happens that you don’t understand and the question, “Why did this happen?” comes up, let go of it quickly. God sees what’s happening to you. He knows what wasn’t fair. He knows how to bring you out better. Trust Him to be your vindicator. The longer you dwell on it, the more you let it bother you, the deeper it gets rooted in you. The key is to forgive quickly and let it go.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

“Father, thank You that You see everything that has happened to me, every unfair thing. Thank You that I can let go of it and forgive quickly before bitterness can come in. I declare that You are my vindicator, and You will make my wrongs right. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
