Are you bitter?
Is it possible you are and think you're not?
Interesting thing about bitterness is that this snare that satan uses to catch us is practically invisible to us. This is mostly because the snare is set using our own emotions against us. Someone harms me in some way, says something hurtful, does something hateful to me and these may truly have been offences to me. Now I react with anger. This is an honest emotion. I become sad and upset. Again, more honest emotions. Satan sees this happening and begins to stoke those flames of emotion with thoughts of, how could they have done this to me? What kind of person would do such a thing? Why me? And with all of this, left unchecked, your heart becomes bitter. Now you feel you have the right to stay in this state of mind toward those who have offended you and satan is just cheering you on against them knowing that your bitter heart has now made you defiled. God has a much better plan for you knowing that being defiled will separate you from Him. The scriptures tell us that it is good that the heart be established by grace (kindness, favor), not with foods that have not profited those who have been occupied with them. Hebrews 13:9 Let the Lord undue this snare that you have been caught up in and bring true lasting healing to your heart.
