Thought and Prayer for Monday, October 21, 2013

Monday, October 21, 2013


We have the choice everyday to be happy or to be bitter. Even right now, whatever our situation is, we can choose. Sometimes we canít choose happiness on our own because we hold too many feelings of resentment and anger. Sometimes we canít choose happiness on our own because we donít want to let go of our selfish feelings. We want the other person to suffer because we feel hurt. However, Godís grace isnít about holding grudges. His grace is about freedom. Freedom from bitterness and hate. Godís grace can cleanse us and our attitude toward others. Letís choose to allow His grace to mend our broken relationships.

Hebrews 12:15 ďLook after each other so that none of you fails to receive the grace of God. Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many.Ē (NLT)

Dear Lord, we canít do anything without You. Right now, we pray You will give us what we need to remove the hate, the anger, the bitterness toward others. Release our wrong and selfish feelings so we can show love and grace to others. Help us today to live for You and to serve others in the way You want us to. Guide us today and cleanse us so we can be the person You created us to be. In Jesusí name. Amen.

Godís grace can remove bitterness.

Godís grace can remove hate.

Godís grace can remove anger.

Godís grace can remove resentment.

Godís grace can remove jealousy.

1 Peter 2:1 ďSo get rid of all evil behavior. Be done with all deceit, hypocrisy, jealousy, and all unkind speech.Ē (NLT)
