Resentment is a real thing. And thank God for leaving behind Scripture for how to overcome resentment so that it does not overtake us.

Resentment is a strange spirit. Many encumbered by it rarely admit to having the affliction for fear of being labeled jealous! The truth about resentment is that sometimes it is fueled by jealousy. Somebody reading this has been there in the room, close up and personal and in the midst of a resentful orbit. It’s not an ideal situation.

Resentment triggered by jealousy often has no valid reason to be but none the less it persists. This is when turning to Scripture for direction, strength and tolerance is essential. Scripture for resentment not only helps the person struggling with feelings of resentment but it also helps the one on the receiving end. Asking God in prayer for wisdom and insight to overcome demonic forces benefits any Christian under attack.

Scripture for how to overcome resentment is powerful but impotent when spoken from the mouth of the un-repented. Wounds require some tending too by someone who knows what they are doing. In the world those people include mothers, fathers, doctors, nurses and even grandmothers. But, for sins, only God can tend too and treat carnal wounds. You cannot bypass him no matter how you try. The preacher can’t dot, the priest can’t do it. The deacon or psychic can’t do it, though many have tried!

Truth be told, most of us know how to overcome resentment, we just don’t have the tools in our belt to do the job. This is where God and prayer come in. We need not be ashamed when we need God’s help. Hence, the Lord can and will equip anybody stricken by the spirit of resentment and bitterness to conquer it. The worst thing you can do is live with it. Even more, expecting to wake up one morning and it’s all gone on it’s own is wishful thinking.

The reason being, it’s a process that requires God’s intervention. He must cleanse the soul, rid the soul of it’s hardened heart and heal all the wounds being resentful and bitter inflict.
