Bitterness – The Lesson

Well, before I could learn about iniquity I was lead to the thought of “bitterness”.

I wanted to know the connection between “bitterness” and “iniquity and I found more than I wanted in Acts 8: 20-23.

20 But Peter said to him, “Your money perish with you, because you thought that the gift of God could be purchased with money!

21 You have neither part nor portion in this matter, for your heart is not right in the sight of God.

22 Repent therefore of this your wickedness, and pray God if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you.

23 For I see that you are poisoned by bitterness and bound by iniquity.”

I have a valley that I am walking through that I am not happy about and I see now that I need to refresh my commitment to submit all my cares to God. I cannot change anything and my pride is causing bitterness to surface. I am asking God to be faithful, so I have to do the same with a righteous heart and get back to where I belong.

Next steps: I need to go pray and confess my sins and ask for forgiveness and believe that God has it all under control and as I wait on Him and the victory that He promises- keep my thoughts, my mouth and actions inline with my belief.

In a nutshell – Brinda – be still and bequiet and know that He is God, not me.

He said TRUST HIM and I will.
