The Upward Call of God – Managing Your Anger the Right Way - Thursday, October 18th

The Upward Call of God – Managing Your Anger the Right Way - Thursday, October 18th

Later Cain suggested to his brother, Abel, "Let’s go out into the fields." And while they were there, Cain attacked and killed his brother. Genesis 4:8

But you did not learn Christ in this way, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus, that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth. Therefore, laying aside falsehood, speak truth each one of you with his neighbor, for we are members of one another. Be angry, and yet do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and do not give the devil an opportunity. Ephesians 4:20-27

Pursue peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, and by it many be defiled. Hebrews 12:14-15

This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God. Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls. But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was. But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer, this man will be blessed in what he does. James 1:19-25

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

It is interesting that God tells us through Paul, not to let the sun go down on our anger. If Cain had followed this prescription history may have been very different. This time frame from God for dealing with anger is a profoundly simple solution. If when the sun goes down each day, there is no anger present we will be in good shape day by day by day. If we ignore this prescription, we will carry anger with us and we will become increasingly subject to feelings and outbursts of rage. The simple practice of coming before the Lord at the close of day can make all the difference. There in His presence we ask Him to reveal any anger we are not already aware of and then by faith we give it all to Him and we go into the night resting in the assurance our anger has been replaced by His peace and comfort.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, I do not want to be a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer. Help me to follow your prescription for managing anger. I am committed to leaving behind the old life and forsaking the old self. I choose to put on the new self in my pursuit of the new life you have called me to. I choose to walk in your grace and leave anger and rage behind. Amen!
