8 Steps for Overcoming Bitterness

8 Steps for Overcoming Bitterness Biblically

When dealing with injustice and bitterness, make this your daily "to do" list:

1. Trust God to use the situation for good (Romans 8:28).

2. Put your hope in God alone, not circumstances or earthly justice (Psalm 62).

3. Focus on the good things in your life (Philippians 4:8).

8 Steps for Overcoming Bitterness Biblically4. When unproductive thoughts overtake you, pray for your offender. And, if God prompts you to bless your offender in some tangible way, obey Him (Romans 12:14, 17-21).

5. Refuse false blame from Satan (1 Peter 5:8,9).

6. But listen carefully to God’s conviction and genuinely repent of any sinful attitudes or actions you have, no matter how small in comparison to your offender (1 John 1:9).

7. Release all bitterness by the power of God’s Spirit because you can't do it on your own (Ephesians 3:20-21Philippians 4:13).

8. Remind yourself that you are doing these things because you love Christ and owe Him your life (1 Corinthians 6:20).
    These things have helped me when I'm dealing with injustice and bitterness. I hope they will help you as well. 

    Bitterness destroys, but God restores!
