Overcoming Anger 

Anger is an easy subject to discuss because we’ve all been there. Anger can start with a minor irritation that makes us mad. But sometimes it is a serious offence that leads to anger. Either way, the question is, which direction will you let your anger take you? 

In scripture, Jonah was a man who knew something about being angry. He ran from God in disobedience, but the Lord saved him out of the belly of a whale and gave him a second chance. He took that chance and went to tell the people of Nineveh that their sin was going to bring the wrath of God. They listened, repented, and God “changed his mind and did not carry out the destruction he had threatened”. But instead of being thankful for the lives that were saved, Jonah was angry! He wanted judgment brought on others, although he was just saved. “The Lord replied, “Is it right for you to be angry about this?” 

Today, satan would like nothing more than for you to be eaten up with resentment, bitterness, and unforgiveness until you find yourself in a place where you can’t escape. Remember Satan drives us but God guides us. Choose the one you want leading you. 

“I will take away their stony, stubborn heart and give them a tender, responsive heart…” – Ezekiel 11:19 

Let’s Pray 

Yahweh, please take my stony, stubborn heart and turn it into a tender, responsive heart that seeks You and your will above all else. Father, forgive me of any bitterness I harbour help me to find release and peace in you alone. God, I thank you for your grace, mercy, and the work you are doing in my life. In Christ’s Name, Amen
