Every human being one way or the other gets angry. We all have times when we become angry. Sometimes people make us angry, and other times things also make us angry. We all get angry when things do not go the way we expect them to go. We get angry when people talk about us in a negative manner.
Anger has devastated a lot of marriages, separate children and parents, and poison relationships.
In any way that anger comes to us, Anger is a monster within us that does terrible things. A person with extreme anger does terrible things that they regret later.
I do believe that anger is wrecking so many homes, businesses, etc that all of us would want to know how we can be able to deal with this terrible monster called anger.
What causes anger is
• NOT HAVING OUR WAY: Some people grow angry when they lose control of a Situation.
• FEELING REJECTED: Being excluded, overlooked, or mistreated can stir up anger.
• LOSS: Losing what we cherish, or simply fearing that loss, can make us angry.
• DISAPPOINTMENT: Unmet expectations can lead to anger.
• INJUSTICE: When we see people mistreated, we can become indignant on their behalf.
• FEELING INADEQUATE: Comparing our life to the lives of others may upset us.
We may blame our quick temper on a lot of things, mostly on our heritage. We may even be proud of it. We may sometimes say, I inherited it from my grandparents. It is in our family. But the bottom line is, if we have a short fuse, we are going to do a lot of foolish things. When we lose our temper we say things we know we should not have said, and do things that we are going to be sorry for later on.
Doctors tell us that losing our temper consistently brings about high blood pressure, dryness of mouth, and a fast-beating heart. It could even bring pre-mature death.
A hot temper could also mean loss of family and friends. The penalties of losing our temper are many.
There is an anger that just stays there, day after day after day. Every cherished anger is a place given to the tempter in his war against us from which he may shoot his arrows towards us.
Stop justifying your anger.
Stop making excuses for your frustration and your rage.
Stop rationalizing what you say and do.
Don’t give the devil a foothold; don’t let your heart be hardened. Let the Holy Spirit set you free from your anger as you respond to His voice.
God has given you the power of choice. Make the right choice.
You can choose to be like God and let love direct what you say and do. Perhaps you feel that you simply can’t lay down your anger. But with the Lord’s help, I’m confident you can.
Do not let anger drive you. Stay in the driver’s seat listening to the instruction of the Holy Spirit. Let God direct your response and not your anger. You can be free from the grip of anger. YOU CAN BE FREE TO LIVE THE RIGHTEOUS LIFE GOD HAS DESIGNED FOR YOU TO LIVE.
