8 Steps for Overcoming Bitterness

bitterness, overcome bitterness
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).

4. 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!
