It can creep in and plant itself before we know it. The enemy can use it to hinder our marriages, the ministry we are leading, and breed disunity among the church.
Anger can slip out fast. We get angry with our husbands because they don't listen, or become angry with the church for circumstances not looking like we hoped. Anger breeds death.
Becoming jealous for your husbands time, or becoming jealous of the church breeds both bitterness and anger.
These three weeds the enemy uses to come to steal, kill, and destroy often root themselves deep down before we even know it. We start acting, and carrying ourselves ways we never would have before. We complain about everything, and find something wrong with any and everyone. Unfortunately, we don't realize bitterness, anger, and jealousy have taken home in our lives until life starts getting sticky and messy.
Fortunately, there is hope. Weeds don't belong in our lives no matter how pretty they disguise themselves. I hate to sound cheesy here, but you need to spray the weed killer friends. We must start covering our hearts, and minds with whatever is pure and lovely. We need to memorize scripture. What we put in, ultimately comes out. Are you eating bitterness for breakfast, or God's word?
Take a look in your life, and start being thankful for everything God has given you. Have a thankful, loving, kind heart. Cover yourself in God's promises, and truths. Watch out for the enemy's lying schemes that like to slither and wiggle their way in dark places of your heart. Keep asking God to look at your heart and take what isn't Him out.
Take a look at what God says about bitterness, anger, and jealousy.
Ephesians 4:31-32 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted,forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
Proverbs 27:4 Anger is cruel, and wrath is like a flood, but jealousy is even more dangerous.
