Romans 12:12 Don’t burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame. Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder.
Luke 6:28 Bless those who call down curses on you. And pray for those who treat you badly.
This I found hard to get my head around until I started to understand, most of the people I was holding resentments against didn’t even know it.
The only person we destroy when we hold onto resentment is ourselves.
Recovery is going to highlight in our lies some bad situations we have been in. We can get resentful and feel sorry for ourselves but we don’t need to stay that way. We can remove resentment from our lives by honestly expressing our pain and shame to God, forgiving others and concentrating on changing ourselves.
- Are you content with who you are today?
- Are there resentments you need to let go of?
Prayer: God help me today to let go of my past and concentrate on being all You want me to be.
Colossians 1:16 Christ himself is the Creator who made everything in heaven and earth, the things we can see and the things we can’t; the spirit world with its kings and kingdoms, its rulers and authorities; all were made by Christ for his own use and glory.
