God wants access to your heart to set you free from tormenting spirits so you can walk into the good things He has for you. The Word of God says that if a root of bitterness is in your heart it’s not something that stays stagnant, it’s an infectious poison that grows and spreads throughout all your relationships. Having bitterness will affect your relationship with God, your family, and people. Bitterness is always a choice. It is often a response to life’s setbacks.
