Growing and maturing beyond resentment
The Word of God teaches us that “We are more than conquerors” When we conquer something we master it! We become better because of it, rather than letting it overtake us. The Word is “Alive & Powerful!” It is a mighty spiritual weapon that cuts and yields healing! It is effective when we believe it, embrace the intended principles and actually implement it within our daily lives. As we trust God the fear of whatever it is, diminishes and there goes the resentment. We are then able to begin to step out on Faith and trust God to lead us through whatever it may be differently.
How will I know that I have given up the resentment?
You will realize that you have been delivered from the resentment once you do not let it unfavorably trigger your emotions.
You no longer hold unto it like a useless security blanket that is full of holes.
You now elect to respond or not respond by instead embracing self-control.
You do not let the situation or incident dictate your feelings.
You do not allow it to trigger your emotions.
You do not allow your pride to take the forefront and govern your actions. Nor do you reach for something outside of you to numb and dull your senses.
You are now committed to moving forward. Once you have genuinely let the resentment go you accept that you have constructively confronted the issue(s) head on. It is no longer acceptable to once again allow yourself to be pulled into despair.
One must commit to take the higher road and focus upon the Lord by; Shaking yourself loose & put yourself in check!
God has no grandchildren. He is the ultimate Father that always knows what is best for us. He is the Most High God. So at whatever age you may be, know that you will always need to be willing to humble yourself and submit to His Will & His Way! We submit as an obedient child does to an honorable parent but we are not to be childish. We daily strive to growing onward towards spiritual maturity. We begin reprogramming our minds to reach to God first. We must be willing to eat more “humble pie” as we embrace humility which is a part of the Fruit of His Spirit.
We can better build stronger benevolent character within ourselves as we submit to God’s way and relinquish our own way. This is a lifelong process. It is evil and sinful to think that we know better than God. Sin is what separates us from God. There is no true inner peace apart from God. We are totally transparent to God. He knows us all from the inside out. The goal is to seek to please the Lord every day. I assure you that you will be a lot happier!
