Bible in one year: Luke 17:11-18:14, Hymn: Sing hymn 25

Message:-

Anger is so dangerous because it can destroy a lifetime of achievements within seconds. Ask Moses: a man who God spoke to face to face (Exodus 33:11), the one who led the children of Israel out of bondage in Egypt and also caused the Egyptian army to be destroyed in the Red Sea (Exodus 14:27,28). Many great miracles had happened through him and he was on the way to leading the children of Israel to the promised land, but anger ended his mission within seconds (Numbers 20:10-12).

Anger is a destiny-killer and that is why I am determined never to get angry again in my life. I was once asked to act the role of an angry man in a play. As hard as I tried, I just couldn’t do it because I had dealt with anger so much in my life. Once in a while, things happen around me that can get me angry but I ensure that I do not stop doing things that help me avoid anger.

Always be in control of your emotions. Anger has a way of making people say or do thing they wouldn’t, normally. You need to be in control so anger does not take you in that direction. When people say “That is how I behave when I get angry”, it shows they don’t place great value on their destiny. If you let anger dictate how you behave, it will also dictate how far you go. Proverbs 25:28 says:

 

“He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.”

You have control; us it!

 

When someone gets angry, I sing choruses. As I sing, I am inviting the Holy Spirit to take control and since He is a gentle Spirit, once He comes in, the anger will go. At other times, you may just quietly leave a place to avoid getting angry.

 

Whatever you do, ensure anger does not control you.

 

“Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry, for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.”

Ecclesiastes 7:9

 

Don’t be a fool.

Key Point

If you let anger dictates how you behave, it will also dictate how far you go in life.
