SCRIPTURE: Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled. Hebrews12:15.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Sickness is rooted in unforgiveness and bitterness; and forgiveness is a cure of affliction.
There was the story of a young lady who was said to be dying of blood cell cancer without cure. Then she met a Christian doctor who told her to go and forgive.
When the doctor told her to go and forgive, she started crying because she had been embittered by her father. According to the story, when she was a little girl, her mother died and her father did not explain to her what happened to her mother. She saw people putting her mother in a coffin and burying her.
No one explained anything to her. She must have been wondering what her mother did to her father to warrant her being put inside a box and then buried. Then her father went on to marry another woman who maltreated her and she grew up in bitterness. This made blood cell cancer to ravage her body.
The doctor advised her to forgive her father and he heeded the doctor’s advice. When she forgave her father, within six weeks, the cancer disappeared from her blood.
This is the lesson: sickness is rooted in unforgiveness and bitterness; and forgiveness is a cure of affliction.
There was also a woman who was told to forgive her husband. When she did that, she was delivered from barrenness that lasted for thirteen years. So, unforgiveness is a trap of the enemy.
Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled.
The root of bitterness is the root of trouble. Every time bitterness is rooted in your heart, trouble has been rooted.
Therefore, by all means, refuse to be embittered by anyone. Release offenders so you can be healed.
REMEMBER THIS: Sickness is rooted in unforgiveness and bitterness; and forgiveness is a cure of affliction.
1. Refuse to be provoked unto bitterness and unforgiveness.
2. Make up your mind to forgive all offenders.
PRAYER: Lord, I thank You for Your Word to me today. I receive the grace to forgive and release all offenders from my heart, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
