Anger

TODAY’S VERSE

And “don’t sin by letting anger control you.” Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry, for anger gives a foothold to the devil.
Ephesians 4:26-27 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Anger is a powerful emotion. It becomes “sin” when it controls us. So much so that Paul says if held onto, anger can give a foothold in our life to the devil. When decisions are made out of anger they can rarely be right because it is impossible to be angry and loving at the same time. God wants us to act in love. Here is the truth. Anger is not the real issue. It is a secondary emotion. It ignites us and off we go, out of control when behind the anger we are really fearful, sad, disgusted or feeling ashamed. Anger does not solve that. Today, don’t sin by letting anger control you. Ask yourself, “What am I really feeling behind the anger?” and let God heal that.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, you know all about my anger. You also know about my wounds and other emotions that are really bothering me. Help me Lord. Heal me Lord of these painful emotions. Help me know the truth of Your great love for me that I might not give a foothold to the devil.
AMEN

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
