πŸ‘‘πŸ™πŸ½ How To Deal With Anger

We are living in a day when philosophy says, β€œexpress yourself openly,” β€œtell it like it is,” β€œopen up,” β€œlet it all hang out.” However, the Scriptures counsel us to exercise restraint.

β€œThe fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law” (Gal. 5:22-23).

As we walk by grace through faith, temperance will enable us to keep our anger under control. But how does this work out in a practical sense? Those who fly off in a fit of rage permit their anger to take control of them. Consequently, the energy emitted from this emotion is usually misdirected at someone or something. Sinful anger tears down. Thus, in the heat of the moment things are often said and done which cause irreparable damage to relationships.

β€œBe ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil” (Eph. 4:26-27).

Paul adds here in Ephesians, β€œlet not the sun go down upon your wrath.” We should never allow our anger to simmer overnight. This will only cause it to become more deeply seated. β€œNeither give place to the devil.” You see, if you fail to handle things in the proper and biblical manner, you may well be giving Satan an opportunity to drive a deeper wedge in your relationships with others. Surely, we are not ignorant of his devices. Always remember, Satan is an opportunist.

Prayer

Heavenly Father,

Forgive me for my outbursts of anger. Today I choose to be constrained by your words when I feel that my anger is simmering or rising. I choose to lay down the anger that leads to sin and to walk in the Spirit instead. I choose to overcome evil with good and to be kind to others, tenderhearted, and forgiving, even as God in Christ has forgiven me. Thank You, Father, for Your immeasurable gift of forgiveness and for the truth that leads to wisdom and grace. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
