Did you know that bitterness is a deadly poison? Bitterness is a harmful feeling that affects both your mood and your health, for this reason we will teach you 11 tips to get away from the bitterness in your life.

Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

Hebrews 12:14

Just as a small root grows into a large tree, bitterness springs up in our hearts and overshadows even our deepest relationships.

A “root of bitterness” takes hold of us when we allow disagreements to grow into resentment, or when we nurture grudges over past hurts.

BITTERNESS MEANS POISON; that does a lot of damage. Within bitterness there is a state that leads to anger followed by fury, as in the case of an emotion that happens; anger in turn produces the feeling that has already settled and that has a desire to take revenge; which causes shouting, slander, blasphemies, which in turn refers to all kinds of slander. Bad feelings deepen to the degree that the carnal individual cultivates. It has to explode into hurtful discussions and talk.

1) Let’s not be like animals that need to be tamed.

“If you did good, you could walk with your head held high. But if you do wrong, sin stalks you, like a beast ready to catch you. However, you can master it. “


After Cain’s sacrifice was rejected, God gave him the opportunity to correct it and try again. Even God encouraged him to do it! But Cain refused, and the rest of his life is a striking example of what happens to those who refuse to admit his mistakes.

2) Don’t let Bitterness Kill your Emotions.

We observe the process of bitterness in this text. (Genesis 4: 1-12) It begins with bitterness that Cain guards against his brother Abel.

What is the consequence of his bitterness?
He takes your face off. The enemy will try by any means, take away the peace and joy of the Lord.

3) Do not allow Bitterness to mix with religiosity.

Is it possible to be religious and bitter at the same time?
The Pharisees were super-religious people, but also bitter and jealous. With cruelty and envy, they had Jesus killed on the cross. If we allow bitterness to settle in our hearts, we can become “Christian Pharisees.”

Who is wise and understanding among you? Show by good conduct his works in wise meekness. But if you have bitter jealousy and contention in your heart, do not boast, nor lie against the truth; because this wisdom is not that which comes down from on high, but is earthly, animal, diabolical.

SANTIAGO 3:13-16

How could a Christian think himself very “wise” but have “bitter jealousy” at the same time?
Bitterness Contaminates Other Relationships in Life As punishment, Cain became “a wanderer and a stranger on earth.” (Genesis 4:12) He was condemned to live isolated and separated from others.


Well, this is what Esau did that for a single meal he sold the rights of his eldest son; and later, when he wanted to receive the blessing of his father, he was rejected and although he cried a lot there was no longer any remedy for what happened.

The story of Esau shows us that mistakes and sins sometimes have long-term consequences (Genesis 25: 29–34; 27:36). Even repentance and forgiveness do not eliminate the consequences of sin. How often does he make decisions based on what he wants now, and not what he needs in the long run? He evaluates the long-term effects of his decisions and actions.


Bitterness comes when we take wrong routes; Like Esau in Genesis, chapter 26:34 he joined the women of the Hittite nation where there was only evil. These two women made life bitter for Isaac and Rebekah. We must stay away from those who can infect us with bitterness.

Ruth 1: 19-22 speaks of Naomi; a woman who, because of her suffering, allowed her soul to embitter; she experienced various hardships leaving Israel married and safe; she returned widowed and poor. She changed her name to Mara to express her bitterness and the pain she felt.

Naomi did not reject God by openly manifesting her pain. Yet it seems that she lost sight of the tremendous resources she had in her relationship with Ruth and with God.

When you face bitter times, God will welcome your sincere prayers, but be careful not to overlook the love, strength, and resources He provides in present relationships. And don’t let bitterness and disappointment blind you to opportunities. You must learn to make good decisions and remember that today’s decisions define your future. “


David even though he had a heart after God’s; he also experienced bitterness. In Psalm 73: 21-22 he says:

“My soul was filled with bitterness, and in my heart I felt pangs. I was so clumsy that I did not understand; she was like a dress in front of you. “

PSALMS 73: 21-22

Bitterness is the easiest sin to justify and the most difficult to diagnose because it is reasonable to excuse it before men and before God himself, at the same time it is one of the most common, dangerous, harmful and the most contagious sins.

“Because we all offend many times, if someone does not offend in words, this is a perfect man, capable also of restraining the whole body,”

JAMES 3: 2


Hurt feelings, anger, resentment, self-pity, resentment, revenge, vain machinations, backbiting, gossip, envy, slander, cynicism, jealousy, dissension and immorality.

Someone once said, we cannot prevent birds from flying over our heads, but we can prevent them from making nests in them, I say that referring to the fact that we cannot prevent these feelings from reaching us at some point in our lives, but we can. prevent them from staying in our hearts.

It is your decision not to keep these feelings that are so harmful.


The scriptures teach us to remove all seeds that have NOT been planted by our Heavenly Father; it must be uprooted. (Matthew 15:13) Also THE Apostle Paul says in the book of Galatians 5:20 that enmity, quarrel, jealousy, anger, strife, dissension, envy.

The Apostle himself speaks in 2 Corinthians 12:20 of pride and in 1 Corinthians 6: 8 of wrongdoing. The Apostle refers to all these and more seeds that are planted by our adversary and must be uprooted and ratifies that those who do not uproot these seeds will have no part in the kingdom of God.

Also Ephesians 4: 31-32 “Get rid of you all bitterness, anger, hatred, yelling, slander, and all malice. Rather, be kind to one another, merciful, forgiving one another, as God also forgives you in Christ.


This provokes strong opinions that irritate others; Many people speak from their bitterness.


The principle for true forgiveness is not only receiving it, but also giving it; otherwise there will not be a true experience of forgiveness in our lives.

Forgiveness comes from God and is given only through genuine repentance. I must repent not only of the evil that I have done, but of all my condition of life in sin before the Father. If not, let’s ask the Psalmist David in Psalm 51.


My liberation depends on my forgiveness. Forgiveness is a decision that activates the plan of redemption, and brings as a benefit:

  • Healing – Psalms 32: 3-4,
  • La Libertad – Mateos 18:27,
  • Prosperity – Proverbs 28:13


The argument is a prejudice that we consciously or unconsciously keep in our hearts and generates rebellion and bitterness against someone or something.

In me there was an argument against my biological father; a man abused by his father never knew why he abused, when his mother gave birth to him, he dies.

It is believed that because of the death of his mother at the time of delivery; there was a distance between the father to son relationship.

He grew up with the rejection of his father, without the care of his mother and with a physical defect; despised by his brothers, only his older sister took charge of him.

When he was barely 12 years old, he fled from his father’s side due to physical, emotional, and moral abuse and grew up without parental affection; poor, lonely and perhaps frustrated by the physical problem that he presented. This caused quite a serious problem for him; he brought the seed of iniquity; poverty, limitation.

“But your iniquities have separated you from your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.”

ISAIAH 59: 2

I knew a story about a little elephant in a circus; He grew up tied to his paw, but as time went by, someone bought the circus and releasing it from his paw would reach the space that allowed him to reach when he was tied to that rope.

This story resembled my father; he was such a limited man in everything.

He was a man without studies, bad character, adulterer, among others; When I was very young, I watched my father beat my mother; Those images remained in my conscience and although I did not understand it; a root of bitterness and arguments was born.

After a long time; my father met the Liberator of his life “JESUS ​​CHRIST” and despite all those difficulties he has been an exemplary father giving us what he has been able to with physical limits, but with great love, he knew how to lift us up and help us until then.

He taught us the values ​​but above all to know the Heavenly Father. Today I can say that I have the best father; God transformed him and changed him to a new man; as the Father did with Saul when he was in his best days. (1 Samuel 10: 6) “then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you with power and you will prophesy with them, and you will be changed to another man” that’s how it was, God gave us a new father.

I can also say that God took away all arguments from me and today I am free, thanks to his love.


“You are the most beautiful Rose in the middle of her garden”

At one time she was suffering from hormonal problems, she felt that she was dying, she was very bad physically. That day I was in a prayer and miracle service; At the end, the Pastors asked us to come forward to pray for us.

On the way to the Altar a shepherdess whom I love very much approached me and she whispered in my ear saying: this is what the Lord says to you: “You are the most beautiful Rose in the middle of her garden” I received the word in my spirit; I felt that God himself spoke to me to prepare my esteem and my spirit.

At the same moment a member of the church approached me equally and said: Sister- I just saw you bent and old; in the same way, I put my eyes on his and responded very sure of what the Father had just told me.

Sister, excuse me I think she was wrong- because a moment ago My Father told me that I am the most beautiful rose in the middle of his Garden!

She, impressed with a bit of pity, turned and walked away from her.
The enemy wanted to put doubt in me, but THE Father who knows everything prepared my spirit filling it with hope, although my body was sick, the Father breathed the breath of life the moment he gave the precise word to strengthen me.

Listening to the voice of God is the most impressive thing that has happened to me in recent times.
The enemy comes to overshadow, to bring doubts, to distract us and above all to distance us from the truth of the Spirit.

“The desert and solitude will rejoice; the wilderness will rejoice and BLOOM LIKE THE ROSE “

ISAIAH 35: 1
