Stop That Anger

Focus: Psalms 37:8 - KJV

8. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.


Ephesians 4:31-32


Scriptures assert that anger lies in the bosom of fools. However, there are too many things happening around the believer to lure him into anger, even if only momentarily. Unfortunately, a spate of anger is a straying away from the presence of God, for everyone that is of God is dead to the flesh and the dead feels no pain to draw him out of his cool state into a burst of anger. When properly analyzed, anger is borne out of pride and God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. No matter the instrument the devil uses to want to lure you out of your cool into a rage of madness, please do not yield. David was taunted by one pedestrian fellow called Shimei. Rather than being angry, the king knew it was impossible for such an individual to so deride him if God did not permit it. Hence, David walked away sulking in the malignment of Shimei. Alas, the same Shimei came back prostrating to the king on his return from exile. If David had acted in anger when Shimei derided him, he might have had his hands stained with his blood.


The mind of God for the believer is to stay far from anger as it bears no good fruit. It does not matter who it is trying to cause you to be angry; just take it in your stride and move on. There is no action taken in anger that is not regrated in the end. The evil doer may bring things our ways to make us look belittled by God. We ought to know better that our God is constantly on our side. And since anger will infuriate our God, we ought to abstain from it. Yielding to anger will only bring the fool in us to the fore. Since we belong to God through Christ, the meekness of Christ ought to show in our lives. Hence, rather than being angry, we are to allow our meekness to show, to the shame of the devil and his agents, just like Shimei was shamed in the matter of David.


SOLUTION: Never allow anything or situation to move you to anger. What you do in the face of provocation is what shows what kind of spirit you have in you.


Please pray:

·      Please give thanks to God for being your sustainer in life up till this day

·      Ask God to please imbue you the more with His Spirit so that you may not yield to the flesh any more in life

·      Pray that God will help you to always put your body under so that you may not end up being proud through anger
