Importance of Forgiveness Recovery Program – Part 1F – Session 5 – June 25th  

III. Take Action By Taking Responsibility – Homework – Due June 25th :

B.   Self-Bitterness – 1F

Loving and forgiving yourself is just as important as loving and forgiving others; if you do not love yourself, you will abuse your own self. Jesus said in Mark 12:30-31:

30Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these.’”

 

Self includes many modifiers:

  • Self-abandonment: disregarding; disregarding all self-interest.
  • Self-abasement: humiliation of one-self.
  • Self-absorbed: focusing on oneself to the exclusion or consideration of others.
  • Self-abuse: comes in many forms, i.e. obesity or anorexia; sleep deprivation or too much sleep; lack of exercise or pushing oneself to the brink; denial of normal sexuality (with spouse) or preoccupation with sex; calling yourself “stupid,” “fat,” “ugly,” “dumb or other names that will demean and degrade yourself [you are “fearfully and wonderfully made” – Ps. 139:14].
  • Self-accusation: constantly finding fault with oneself.

 

To be set free from self-bitterness:

Make a list of all the bitterness you have had in the past or have now against yourself. You need to confess and repent before Almighty God for holding onto this bitterness and believing it, instead of believing Him [God]. The stronghold that self-bitterness has held in your life will be destroyed.

After you have written your list, pray the “Prayer of Release” (listed below) for each issue on your list; do not do a “blanket” prayer – praying each issue separate will cause you to face and deal with each issue one at a time.

 

III.  Take Action By Taking Responsibility – Homework – Due June 25th :

B.   Self-Bitterness Affidavit – 1F

The Self-Bitterness Affidavit – 1F - Keep for yourself

Make the list of all the bitterness you have against yourself. You need to confess and repent before Almighty God for holding onto this bitterness and believing it, instead of believing Him. The stronghold that bitterness has held in your life will be destroyed. Bitterness gains entrance into your life through unforgiveness. Once you get rid of self-bitterness then you will become free of all shame, guilt, self-condemnation, regret, sorrow and other negative emotions that have attached themselves to you through self-bitterness.

Importance of Forgiveness Recovery Program – 1F-1 – Session 5 - June 25th   

Pray the prayer below to Overcome Self-Bitterness using “Self-Bitterness Affidavit” as a guide

 

III.  Take Action By Taking Responsibility – Homework – June 25th

B.  Self-Bitterness

  •  Prayer to Overcome Self-Bitterness – 1F-1

Dear Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus, and as an act of my free will, I confess, repent, and renounce my (specific sin of self-bitterness). I ask You to forgive me for this sin. I purpose and choose to forgive myself for this (specific sin of self-bitterness) from my heart. I release myself from any guilt or shame because of this self-bitterness. In the name of Jesus, and by the power of His blood, I cancel Satan’s authority over me because of the self-bitterness of (specific sin of self-bitterness). In the name of Jesus, I command this spirit of self-bitterness to go.

Holy Spirit, I invite You into my heart to heal me of self-bitterness, in the name of Jesus, Amen!

Note: Forgiveness journal is a notebook you can use to write things down; it is up to you but I highly suggest you keep a journal.

Goal is for deliverance; not speeding through the prayers. If an issue returns, write it in your “Forgiveness Journal” (label which one of these issues are trying to return –deal with issues as they arise not let them control you again) and let me know so we can pray through that memory again in the next session. Therefore, praying through the issues may take longer than one session or two or even three sessions.
