Let it Go

Let it Go Eph 4:31-32 – Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. NKJV
 
The apostle Paul wrote to the Church at Ephesus, giving them an important task, they were supposed to rid their lives all of these things: anger, evil speaking, bitterness etc. When you hold on to the wrong things, it will hinder your progress spiritually and will keep you from living the life that God has planned for you.
 
Bitterness, wrath anger etc., will harden your heart towards God and others. You will become desensitized to spiritual things and it will be difficult to receive from God like you should. When you’re heart is hardened, spiritual things will become indistinct to you and it will be difficult to discern the leading of the Lord in your life.
 
Learn to let things go, stop holding onto harmful thoughts and attitudes. The Word of God is full of instructions like these, they are not in the Bible to take up space or to sound spiritual; we are supposed to apply these verses to our lives.
 
James 1:22 – But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. NKJV
 
Be a doer of the Word, when the Bible says something, do it.  When you act on the Word you put yourself in a place where God can bless your life. If you have been struggling spiritually and finding yourself walking in confusion, stop and be a doer of the Word.  
 
Check your heart; make sure you are right before God.  If you need to forgive someone, do it!  Be kind and tenderhearted towards others and forgive.   Remind yourself of the good things in the Word, that you are saved, born of God to overcome, and that you are forgiven!  Don’t continue to live life with a hardened, cold heart, get it right by applying the Word of God to it.  
 
1 John 1:9 – If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. NKJV
 
God is faithful to forgive you and help you!
 
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I ask that you would help me today to forgive others. I choose to walk in your forgiveness.  Help me put a guard over my mouth and to let things go. I choose to focus on the good, I choose to be kind and tenderhearted today.  I am a doer of your Word and I thank you that you help me today and everyday. In Jesus name, Amen.
