Bible Reading: Proverbs 14:29; 15: 1,18 ; 22:24; Eccl 7:9 MemoryVerse: A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control. Proverbs 29:11 (NIV)   Anger is one word short from danger. Uncontrolled anger indeed could be dangerous. Individuals, lives, properties, establishments and nations have been destroyed due to anger (Prov. 15:18). Only fools allow themselves to be carried away by anger to the extent of misbehaving. It is almost impossible not to come across people and events in life that will make you angry but the Scriptures offer the solution: “Be angry, and do not sin: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil” (Eph. 4: 26-27). There is no wisdom when people say, “Let me say all that is on my mind now that I am annoyed”. No matter how angry you are, learn to control your temper and bridle your tongue (Jas. 3:2-7).   Uncontrolled anger has resulted in many misusing the power of the tongue, which has led to great disasters and regrets. The disaster resulting from untamed anger can be worse than an holocaust. Anyone who properly checks his temper is referred to as wise (Eccl. 7:9). Surprisingly, when it comes to anger, even a genius, or the most anointed, can become a fool. Nabal foolishly disdained David and his men when they asked for his kind gesture after they had risked their lives to protect his flocks. Thank God for wise Abigail, Nabal’s wife who prevented David from venting his anger on him (1 Sam. 25:10-34). “For the anger of man doesn’t produce the righteousness of God”. James 1:20(WEB). It is natural and normal to see or hear things that can make one angry, but God expects you to choose how to positively respond to such situations. The late Dr. Myles Munroe said, “Life is 10% what happens to you, and 90% how you react to it.”    What do you do when angry?  1. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you. Anger is a demon. Rebuke it. 2. Walk away from the anger provoking scene. 3. Keep quiet. Ambrose Bierce said, “Speak when you are angry and you will make the best speech you will ever regret” . 4. Never take any minor or major decisions when angry. 5. Take a cold drink or a cold shower to calm your nerves. 6. Seek foundational deliverance from the spirit of anger residing in your blood.   Shall we round off in the words of Shannon L. Alder, “If you spend your time hoping someone will suffer the consequences for what they did to your heart, then you’re allowing them hurt you a second time in your mind”. Mastering your emotions is one of the true signs of maturity.   QuoteAnger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured – Mark Twain   Prophetic Decree: Receive your deliverance from the anger spirit of your father’s house, in Jesus name.   Prayer Focus 1. Thank You Father for your rod of correction 2. Holy Spirit, please overwhelm and override my temperament, in Jesus name. 3. Lord, help me to control my tongue and actions when I am angry, so that l don’t disappoint You. 4. Lord, help our leaders not to be eaten up by anger, so they don’t miss the mark and end like Moses. 5. I curse every foundational spirit of anger in my blood, in Jesus name.
