ROOT OF BITTERNESS | I see it! You want to know why people who once had faith in God, lose faith? It's because of bitterness and unforgiveness. I promise! Most every person who I've talked to about faith in God who have slipped away or turned against God totally, they always bring up a situation when they were wronged by someone, or they will bring up how they were rejected or abused by their father which altered the way they view having a relationship with a Heavenly Father. Think about it y'all... People mess over people in earthly relationships because of how they were done in previous ones. This is the MAIN reason how FALSE religions start and confusing philosophies get adapted by people.
Satan will ALWAYS capitalize off of you dwelling on offenses by someone who was in a place of trust and authority in your life. And the time he aims for us is when we are venerable & impressionable as children. When a child is abused, rejected, or hurt in some way by a parent, their whole life can be altered and world view skewed because of it! Why? Because our parents are the very ones that are responsible for our existence. They are also responsible for molding our character initially! So, when a child has to endure pain and suffering because of dad and mom's rejection and abuse, a child can grow up harboring wrath, bitterness, and unforgiveness towards others, themselves, and even God.
So, when a person has this in their heart, here comes the vices like smoking, alcoholism, sexual deviance, etc, because they need to feel the pleasurable chemical releases to take their mind off of the unresolved issues they've grown to live with, instead of getting delivered from that junk and forgiving people!
What a horrible way to live! It's much easier to just forgive those who wronged us, including our parents and ask God to forgive us for how wrong towards Him so we can stay free in our body, soul, and spirit!
Oh and by the way, you may be sick in your body now and not even realize that it was probably caused by harboring unforgiveness & bitterness.
LET IT GO AND FORGIVE SO YOU CAN STAY FREE!!!
Mat 6:14 - 15
“For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
May the Lord be with you,
