I wonder why many medicines are bitter. The thing which is supposed to cure us is often bitter and difficult to swallow, yet the same bitter pill is supposed to bring relief and joy when the pain or sickness disappears.
God’s word is like that; it is bitter-sweet. There are many people with sick bodies, relationships, marriages, character, spirits, and finances. The way out is the medicine of God’s word.
In Revelation 10:9, John describes the effect of the word of God in our lives. It reads, “And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up, and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.”
To take the bitterness of a failed relationship, demonic oppression, or a difficult past out of your life, you will have to first embrace the ‘bitterness’ of God’s word. This is because you may have to sacrifice some things, but remember that is God’s medicine; it is bitter at the beginning, but afterward, it shall be as honey in your mouth or in your experience. It will restore sweetness back to your life.
Take it by obeying it!
