•Have you ever had something to say to someone and wanted to say it the right way, at the right time, but you were also angry with the person? Don’t say it,because once you say it,you can’t take it back. And don’t say,you didn’t mean it because, God says,
“Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.”(Matthew 12:34 NKJV). OOPS, THERE IT IS.
•Here are some fundamental principles of scripture that will help you.
“Do not hasten in your spirit to be angry, For anger rests in the bosom of fools.” (Ecclesiastes 7:9 NKJV).
“The heart knows its own bitterness, And a stranger does not share its joy. A wise man fears and departs from evil, But a fool rages and is self-confident. A quick-tempered man acts foolishly, And a man of wicked intentions is hated.” (Proverbs 14:10, 16-17 NKJV).
“A soft answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger. The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly, But the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness. The eyes of the Lord are in every place, Keeping watch on the evil and the good. A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, But perverseness in it breaks the spirit.” (Proverbs 15:1-4 NKJV).
“Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil. Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need. LET NO CORRUPT WORD PROCEED OUT OF YOUR MOUTH, BUT WHAT IS GOOD FOR NECESSARY EDIFICATION, THAT IT MAY IMPART GRACE TO THE HEARERS. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.” (Ephesians 4:26-32 NKJV).
James 1:19-20 advices us:
Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath, For the wrath of man works not the righteousness of God.
Then James 3:2 says :
…If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man…
•Always be willing to let the anger go, trust God and communicate in love.
Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!
“Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, And to present you faultless Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen.”
[Jude 1:24-25 NKJV].
