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 4:26-27

What importance this verse holds! While anger is a natural emotion, letting it fester inside us gives the devil a chance to enter our lives.

When we feel angry, we don’t need to bottle it up, but instead take it to the Lord’s feet.

In His presence, He will help us decipher whether the anger we are feeling is just or not. If it is, He will guide you on what to do next.

However, many times anger arises from misunderstandings and deception.

Misguided anger leads to offense, and offense leads to strife and division.

This is why it is never wise to be driven by emotion, but remain composed and rely on the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Have you ever lashed out at someone and regretted it later?

Feeling anger itself isn’t sinful, but we need to be careful how we express it. If done rashly, we end up hurting the Lord and other people.

Since God understands us perfectly, He is faithful to forgive and help us get back on track.

The next time you feel anger rise up in you, pause and take it to the Lord. Remember that He came to make you free from the bondages of the world.

Yielding to the Holy Spirit and dealing with emotions responsibly allows you to live with abundant joy and peace!  

With Love,
Paper Sunday

Father God, Thank You. This was for me. I was angry and spoke harsh to my husband last night. The Holy Spirit convicted me, I knew I was wrong, but it took me a while to apologize, tell him I was sorry. He said it was alright. I told him no I shouldn’t havs spoke to him in that tone. Father I’m sorry I sinner against you, please forgive me. In Jesus Name.
