SCRIPTURE: For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The release of people is the release of self.
The Holy Spirit is the personality of Divinity that executes Divine agenda. Just as the sunlight has multi-functional components and assignments such as supplying of health to sick eagles, supplying food to plants in the process called photosynthesis, etc., so is the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is multi-functional.
It is important to know that one of the dimensions of the Holy Spirit is Love. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Love. The love of God is saturated, distributed, percolated in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given to us (Romans 5:5).
Now, what is the assignment of the Spirit of love?
It is the impartation of grace to walk in freedom from bitterness and unforgiveness. There is a grace to walk in freedom from unforgiveness when the Spirit of love controls your life.
There are families where unforgiveness is a virtue among members, and that is a demonic virtue.
Sometime ago, a young man told me that his father said to him, “If anybody looks for your trouble, do not return home until you finish with him”. (Paraphrased). He said they were raised to be bitter and not to forgive.
You see, when the Spirit of God works in you, you can forgive and forget.
Beloved, if you have an assignment to fulfil in life and you lock your heart in bitterness, your destiny is already arrested. The release of people is the release of self. You cannot hold people in your heart without holding yourself down on earth.
My counsel is, yield yourself to the Holy Spirit and allow Him to help you walk in love.
Remember this: The release of people is the release of self.
1. Fellowship with the Holy Ghost.
2. If you are holding anyone in your heart, ask for the grace to release the person. Do it now.
3. Avoid the company of gossips, malicious and bitter people.
PRAYER: Sweet Holy Spirit, I ask that You overwhelm my heart with God’s love and cause this love to flow through me to people around me. I refuse to live in bitterness, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: If you harbour, even for a minute, the act of bitterness or unforgiveness, you are indirectly putting on the nature of satan, the devil. Culled from “AM I BITTER?” by Dr (Mrs) Becky Paul-Enenche.
AMAZING FACT: Dolphins have several highly developed forms of communication. They have a “signature whistle” which allows other individuals to recognise them. What is your own uniqueness?
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Receive the fresh baptism of the Spirit of love this day in the Name of Jesus’ Name.
