Bible reading: Col. 3:8, Heb. 4:12.

Memory Verse: “Be angry without doing wrong; let not the sun go down on your wrath” Ephesians 4:26(BBE)

  1. Resolve it quickly (Eccl. 7:9; Eph. 4:26).
  2. Anger can help you protect yourself, but, make sure it is not your fuel to rationalize yourself out of your responsibility (1 Sam. 31:4).
  3.  It is OK to be angry; it is how you handle it that matters. Try to spend time in prayer and read the Book of Psalms to calm down. Go for a walk (do not take a drive!) or exercise to help release your stress. Make sure you pray for those frustrating you (Acts 24:16).
  4. Focus on Christ, and His interests (Phil. 2:4).
  5. Focus on the root cause of anger, not the person or situation (Prov. 29:11).
  6. Ask yourself, “Have I analysed the circumstances correctly, or am I overreacting? “From experience, 95% of people overreact!
  7. Ask for help from an impartial friend, a counsellor, or pastor. Make sure you do not aim your anger at them (Matt. 5:23-24).
  8. Ask yourself, “Why am I angry?” Why do I feel this way?” What did I do to spur this on?” Why am I threatened?” What are my “hot buttons,”?” “Will my anger be a benefit, or a hindrance? ” Am I focused on God, or am I focused on my expectations and comfort? ” How will my anger benefit my spiritual growth, my witness, and God’s call in my life? “There is a bigger picture and reason to life than what you may be feeling (Prov. 15:18; 29:22).
  9. Seek and resolve the problem without being rational (Matt. 7:1-5).
  10. Perhaps God is using you to confront someone; if so, do it with tact (Prov. 15:1; Eph. 4).

Quote: When Angry, Stay Under the Control of the Holy Spirit until He diffuses your emotion.

Prophetic Word: Receive grace to triumph over every work of anger in your life, in Jesus name.
