“Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:” Hebrews 12:1 tells us to lay aside every weight and the sin that will so easily ensnare us. Sometimes we also have to let go of the past so we can hold of our future “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 3:13-14 KJV
“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”
Galatians 5:19-21 KJV
The Bible also gives us some things to grab onto.
“And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.”
1 Corinthians 13:13 KJV
“Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.”
Romans 15:13 KJV
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.”
Galatians 5:22-25 KJV
If you’re holding on to anger and revenge and hurts and disappointments, you will have no room for faith, hope and love!! We need to let go so we can grab onto!! God will pour out blessings upon you that you won’t be able to contain!!
