Cut Out All Evil

Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour,
and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving
one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven
you (Ephesians 4:31-32).
In Deuteronomy 10:16, the Bible tells us to circumcise
our hearts: “Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your
heart, and be no more stiffnecked.” What does this mean? To
circumcise means to “cut out” something. To circumcise your
heart would therefore mean to cut out from your heart those
things that aren’t supposed to be there: bitterness, anger,
envy, hatred, malice, and all forms of wickedness. Some
people unwittingly allow these things in their hearts because
they’re ignorant of the consequences.
A bitter heart, for instance, is a breeding ground for
demonic activity. Not only that, most cancers come from
anger and bitterness. Proverbs 14:30 says, “A peaceful heart
leads to a healthy body; jealousy is like cancer in the bones”
(NLT). People only become aware of cancer when it starts
giving pain and discomfort; they don’t know it most likely
started years before, when they allowed bitterness, anger,
hatred, malice, and envy to persist in their lives. That’s why the
Bible says, “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without
which no man shall see the Lord: Looking diligently lest any
man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness
springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled”
(Hebrews 12:14-15).
There’re people who have been wounded to the point
of tears, and with bitterness in their hearts, acted in a wrathful
Cut Out All Evil out the way. The Lord says to you today, “Circumcise your heart!”
Cut out the bitterness and the anger from your heart, for your
own good.
Have you been trying to stop the anger, or trying to put
away bitterness without success? You don’t have to struggle.
All you have to do is proclaim the Lordship of Jesus Christ
over your life: over your spirit, soul and body. Then declare, “I
choose to serve the Lord; I reject hatred, bitterness and anger.
I’m going to walk in love.” No demon of darkness can stand
against that. Satan can’t resist the power of love. The Word
declares, “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casteth out
fear…” (1 John 4:18).
PRAYER
Dear Father, my heart is full of
your love, kindness, and
compassion. I refuse to allow
bitterness, anger, or strife to take
root in me. I walk in love today
and always, confident that no
weapon fashioned against me
shall prosper, in Jesus’ Name.
