It is for freedom that I have set you free. I have called you to follow and see what I have planned for you. I have made promises to you, but you must walk forward and believe to receive. I told Abram to leave his father’s house and go to the promise. To leave the idol’s and to walk by faith. Leaving or letting go is a sign to Me that you believe what I have promised you.I told Abram to look up to the stars. Abram believed Me and it was credited to Him as righteousness. As for you, you must look up as well, to what is above you. As long as you hold on to what your hand can hold or your eyes can see, you are not walking by faith. I am your comfort and I am your strength. I am your satisfaction. I am calling you to set aside the things that hinder you and to run the race set before you. Run to the promises that I have made you. Do you believe what I have told you, or do you trust in what you hold in your hand? I have asked you to walk by faith, not by sight. ~God

Hebrew 12 Therefore, since we also have such a large cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily ensnares us. Let us run with endurance the race that lies before us, keeping our eyes on Jesus, the source and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that lay before Him endured a cross and despised the shame and has sat down at the right hand of God’s throne.

There are places in your soul where you have small deposits of unforgiveness and bitterness. You have welcomed these deposits through the offense you have taken as others have disappointed and hurt you. You allow them to remain because you believe they  protect you from future disappointments. I Am the One who protects you. I will establish you and guard you from the evil one. You must let down your guard and release bitterness and resentment. For I have called you to Love Others and Do Good to those who hate you, and to bless and not curse. I know that this is impossible for your flesh. But I am asking you to die to self and live for Me. Live by faith in Me, knowing that I gave My flesh as an offering to save you. As long as you live in agreement with the enemy and allow these deposits to remain, the devil has place in you to manipulate and control you. But I have given you the keys to loose these things and to bind to you My risen life instead. ~Jesus

“quiet anger- is a small grudge or harbored bitterness toward someone who has hurt or disappointed you.” Jennie Allen from the Bible Study “Stuck”

Prayer: Holy Spirit I ask You to search me and reveal to me any areas of “quiet anger”.  As He reveals these to you say: “I confess these as sins and I choose to loose offense, bitterness and resentment from my soul, In Jesus’ Name. I choose to bind to my soul, forgiveness and love and faith in My Savior Jesus. Amen.

Luke 6:28-30 Bless those who curse you. To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic either. 

Matthew 16:19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
