Good Lord! I remember when I used to live and feed on anger, it was terrible I would quake, sweat, have an increased heart rate and just stammer my way out of the house and fume until I heard the Voice of the Lord tell me, "you need help with this". I can't remember how many time I prayed and fasted against the Spirit of anger in my life.
Ephesians 4:31 31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: 32 and be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.NLT
DEALING WITH ANGER
Firstly Anger has to be put away from you. . . and that is an express instruction from God .
In Psalms 37:8 8 Stop your anger! Turn from your rage! Do not envy others- it only leads to harm.
Anger is a Capital NO, NO for a Christian, period, because when it is not controlled, it grows and gives birth to another deadly sin called "Hatred"!
I say to you today that, Uncontrolled anger can lead to Hatred. hatred can be described as an immense feeling of dislike toward a person or a thing, and even worse it could be An intense feeling towards someone or something, wanting to kill, or harm a person, in feelings of dislike. . . Terrible isn't it?
A Christian has no business hating someone or repaying evil for evil, I tell you in my life, life has given me reasons to be angry, bitter, vindictive and also hate people around me but; God did not allow the seed of bitterness to bear fruit in my life. that's why am reaching out to you and admonishing you to shun anger, for it is a dangerous weapon of the devil to keep you away from your blessings in Christ Jesus.
Lastly, give it all to Jesus! who better to heal your broken heart and disappointments? He is the only one who will never hurt you, be rest assured that people will definitely offend you, use you and keep doing those things that infuriate you. The key is not to take umbrage but to look unto Jesus the Author and finisher of your faith.
Ask the Lord to take away the Spirit of anger, it is possible, it happened to me. . . today am delivered in Jesus Mighty Name Amen.
It would also be wise to try and stay away from situations and relationships that cause you to get angry. . . especially avoidable ones, so as to minimize the incidence of it happening.
Keep your heart clean and remain faithful to God.
