VICTORY OVER RESENTMENT

A little bit of kindness can go a long long way. A little bit of love can help one through the day.“And be ye kind one to another, tender hearted, forgiving one another,even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”(Ephesians 4:32).
“Dearly beloved,avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written,VENGEANCE IS MINE; I WILL REPAY, saith the Lord. THEREFORE IF THINE ENEMY HUNGER, FEED HIM; IF HE THIRST, GIVE HIM DRINK: FOR IN SO DOING THOU SHALT HEAP COALS OF FIRE ON HIS HEAD.Be not overcome of evil,but overcome evil with good.”( Romans 12:19-21).In other words keep your wrath and anger in the right place, which is in the Lord’s hands, and don’t let the devil cause you to sin by saying and doing things which are not of the Lord, but what the devil wants you to say and do.“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” (Matthew 5:44-48).“Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God: lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;”(Hebrews 12:14,15).”BE YE ANGRY, AND SIN NOT: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil.”( Ephesians 4:26,27) We all make mistakes and sin. We all need forgivness from the Lord and others. He drew a circle that shut me out , but I drew a circle that brought him in.“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.”(Acts 10:38). When Peter cut off the ear of the soldier, Jesus put the soldiers ear back on,and healed him, and told Peter “Put away your sword.”(John 18: 10,11) and(Luke 22:49-51).“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”( Matthew 5:9).“If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.” (Galatians 5:25,26).Hate and bitterness will choke you out spiritually and even effect you physically, and all those around you it is like a highly contagious sickness. The only way out of this devils trap is desperate prayer and getting into the Word. Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees;  and make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed. Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:  looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;” (Hebrews 12:15). Holding onto bitterness is making an open door for the devil to come in with his hordes of demons who will try and destroy you and those you come in contact with. The way to check our spiritual temperature is by asking ourselves, am I becoming more like Jesus?

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

  1. I was just getting upset about not having as much money as I had a few months ago. I was complaining about my staff at work. This was making me get angry and I started blaming others for mistakes. I realize I am blessed and I need to be thankful.
