The Topic of Seeds of Destiny Devotional for Today 26th December 2023 Is “Bitterness, A “Disconnector” From Grace”
Scripture: Hebrews 12:14, 15
Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: 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.
Thought for The Day: Bitterness disconnects people from the Grace of God.
Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that bitterness disconnects people from the Grace of God.
The Scripture says,
Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God;
When a man is bitter, the grace of God will be lacking in his life.
Hebrews 4:16 says,
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
This means, a bitter person has no access to the throne of Grace. He cannot come boldly to the throne of Grace. When you are graceless, you are helpless; and when you are helpless, you are useless and vulnerable before the devil.
Bitterness between you and your spouse renders both of you useless and vulnerable before the devil. Bitterness between you and your brother, sister, stepmother, father, or in-laws, renders you graceless, helpless and useless before the powers of darkness.
Sometime ago, a man who repented from the ogboni fraternity, said that one of the weapons the devil used to ruin the destiny of Christians was bitterness. He said that whenever they wanted to attack Christians, they would send offences to them, and that if they could make Christians bitter and angry, they could gain access into their lives.
So, in order to gain access into the lives of Christians, they introduce offences, anger and bitterness.
I have seen a family where children kept dying one by one because of irresolvable strife between the husband and the wife. If you want the Grace of God to grease your life, you must make up your mind to avoid bitterness.
Remember this: Bitterness disconnects people from the Grace of God.
- By all means, avoid bitterness to avoid the leakage of God’s Grace from your life.
- Always ask God to give you the grace to forgive people.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I receive Your help to avoid bitterness at all cost, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
