Grudge Holding Grip


Devotion:  Leviticus 19:18

Have you ever had a wrong spirit within you?  You knew it was wrong and frankly you didn’t care.  Someone made you mad or sad and you felt led to act or react and held that grudge against the person for a very long time.  So how’s that working for you?

The other person has no idea he or she is holding you captive, effecting your spirit.  In fact, you’ve been dragging this wrong spirit around so long; it almost feels “normal”.

If you can find it in your heart to forgive and release him or her from your grudge holding grip; you will find instant relief and release from the weight of it all.

You were not built to carry grudges.  Bearing grudges brings all sorts of physical, as well as spiritual weights along with it.  You stay angry and full of resentment.  Is it really worth all that?  It’s such a waste of time  that you could spend thinking on good things, doing productive things.  You must fight against that grudge holding grip.  It is absolutely the worst heart and soul binding thief of all times.

Bring your grudges to the cross of Christ.  He died to bring freedom from grudges.  He will bring the sweetest release when you give over those grudges to Him.  Why not?  The One who will heal your sin sick soul; will also free you from that grudge holding grip.

Prayer in Motion:

Lord, please forgive me for bearing grudges.  I’ve wasted so much time brooding over things that have been said or done to me.  I thank You for patiently teaching me and training me in righteousness.  In Jesus Name.  Amen
