Managing your anger?

‘Be ye angry, and sin not. Let not the sun go down upon your wrath’, Eph. 4. 26.

Anger is not a sin; mismanaging it is! The first thing to remember when you get mad at someone is, it means you care! You wouldn’t let someone know how you feel if you didn’t. You just need to learn how to express your feelings in a way that brings better results. Instead of yelling at your children for not doing their homework, explain to them how an education can fulfill their dreams, then help them where they’re struggling. And don’t constantly preach at your unsaved loved ones. They will be won more easily with attraction rather than provocation!

Hear the wisdom of scripture, ‘Neither give place to the devil’, Eph. 4. 27. The first territory the enemy wants to take is your home, because that’s the seat of your power. Don’t let him! ‘But I’ve reason to be angry,’ you say. So had Joseph. Yet he fed those who imprisoned him, and blessed those who betrayed him. In so doing, he was set free from his anger.

Later, when he had two sons, he called the first Manasseh, meaning ‘God has made me forget all my trouble’, Gen. 41. 51. Would Joseph have become great if he’d gone back to seek revenge? No! He fulfilled his destiny and enjoyed God’s favour, because he controlled his emotions instead of venting them. He called his second son Ephraim, meaning ‘God has made me fruitful in the land of my suffering’, Gen 41. 52. Your anger subsides as you start to see that, in spite of all you’ve been through, God has continued to bless you.
