Lots of things in the world right now can cause us to be angry. Things like
the coronavirus, siblings, other’s actions, teachers, etc. But, when we work
on controlling our anger, it’s a sign of maturity and growth.
Proverbs 25:28 says, “a man who does not control his temper is like a city
who’s walls are broken down.”
It’s ok to be angry at the devil; the things he has done, sickness he has
created, but don’t let your anger become uncontrollable. When we don’t
control our anger, we are allowing the enemy to succeed. And if we’re not
careful, we can allow the enemy to take our anger to a whole different level.
Like turning the small situations into bigger unmanageable situations.
When you stay in anger, you start to focus on you. Then anger turns to
wrath. When we give in, we focus on ourselves.
“The Bible says human anger can be sinful. We can get mad or angry, but
we must not nurture that anger. When we cannot get past what makes us
angry, and we stay in that state for a while, it starts ruining our thoughts, it
changes our mood, it turns a good day into a bad day, and it can even start
to ruin our relationships.” (Quote from New Life New Way/You Version).
We need to not give in to anger. The way something stays alive is by
nurturing it. If we feed into anger, it will stay but even worse, it will grow. We
need to let God work in us, ask for wisdom, and pray.
