Everyday Bitter Root
We can say we trust in God to avenge us but as soon as we take matters into our own hands and try to avenge ourselves or someone, we love we obviously aren’t putting a lot of faith in the power of who and what God says. I think a big challenge is not to pick up the offense of a friend or family member who’s been hurt. I’m guilty there. But when we take on someone else’s offense we’re sucking the poison of their garbage sin and we become bitter along with them.
One prayer I’ve said many times is, “Jesus root it up.” I’m asking God to take the bitter root of hurt I’ve let seep in from another. What God has prompted me to do is think about the good things this person has done in my rather than rehearse the pain. God understands our hurts and He is always on the move to make amends and redeem. Talk to Him. Journal about the hurt. It’s the enemy’s plan to ruin relationships. God’s plan is to restore. Follow Deuteronomy 30:19 which tells us to make the choices which bring life so that we and our descendants may live meaningful lives…everyday.
