Battle over Bitterness
By Don Miller | May 25, 2019
Anyone on the planet with any age has some issues that are worthy of some hefty bitterness. But God, who is fully aware of every heart, promises His power working for those who will forgive and think upon the things worthy of praise.
The problem is that the attack of bitterness comes in waves; you can be free, then later find another wave catching you unsuspectingly.
God says, ‘Forget all that—it is nothing compared to what I am going to do’… “Behold, I am about to do something new; even now it is coming… Indeed, I will make a way in the wilderness and streams in the desert.” —Isaiah 43:18,19.
Joseph was given the opportunity to crush those who hurt him and give them a full measure of the great hurt they brought upon him. But he caught the Unseen. “God sent me ahead …for… a great deliverance.” –Genesis 45:7. He was given great difficulty, yet by his persistence to follow his God, with God, Joseph turned the situation into an opportunity to help others. Then, God blew all the walls down and opened one of the greatest opportunities to help others in the history of mankind. And staggering blessings were brought to Joseph, also, in the process.
Put on the armor of God…the shield of faith..know that the Almighty God is a GREAT rewarder of those who continuously seek Him in this!
