Proverbs 18:19 A brother offended is harder to win than a strong city, and contentions are like the bars of a castle. I speak to those who have become offended and hurt. The rejection that you have entertained has imprisoned you and separated you not only from your purpose and position in My kingdom, but from Me. You have nursed this offense like a dependent child, and it has become a constant companion and reminder of your pain. It is time for you to make a decision to tear down the walls of offense and forgive those through whom this offense came. You must make a decision to arise out of this place of self-pity, or that which has been lame will be dislocated. (Hebrews 12:13) Release yourself from the bondage brought on by the condition of your heart and be free.
