Are You Angry 😡

Bottled up anger is a like a ticking pipe bomb that’s ready to detonate at the slightest disturbance. Ephesians 4:26-27 says, “In your anger do not sin: Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold.” Notice, Paul did not teach that all anger is wrong, but it’s what you do with your anger that counts. When the unchecked pipe bomb explodes most will take the path of least resistance and say, “I am only being human!” Well, when you default into “just being human” and feed your carnal nature, you give the enemy permission to take control of the situation. Anger rooted in our own sinfulness is dangerous and destructive to others and to ourselves. Unchecked anger among family and friends will break fellowship and bring damage to our precious relationships. How many times have you angered God? His response to our poor lack of judgment is found in Hebrews 8:12, “And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins.” Bottom line: we must be careful to heed the closing exhortation of Ephesians 4, “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you” (Ephesians 4:32). If you feel like detonating…..LET IT GO!!! Remember when you hold on to anger, you run the risk of becoming bitter and resentful, which provides the enemy with a foothold in your life and relationships! Just so you know; foothold in the Greek is translated “moomad” (moh-om-awd) and it means a standing ground. So in other words, when you yield to anger you’re literally give Satan which represents darkness standing ground in your life….is this what you really want?
