DO NOT BE RULED BY ANGER!
Then Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah went near and struck Micaiah on the cheek, and said, “Which way did the spirit from the Lord go from me to speak to you (2 Chronicles 18:23).
A Christian should never be ruled by anger because anger is an evil spirit that can influence one negatively. When you are being ruled by anger, you lose control of yourself both physically and emotionally. The Bible says in the opening text that then Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah went near and struck Micaiah on the cheek, and said, “Which way did the spirit from the Lord go from me to speak to you”. Every Christian should take note of the fact that the spirit of anger and pride go together and they can destroy destinies if unchecked.
God wants you as a Christian to be able to control your emotions and anger. Anyone who fails to control his emotions and anger is immature spiritually. Of course, spiritual maturity entails self-disciplined. That is why the Bible says in Proverbs 25:28, “Whoever has no rule over his own spirit is like a city broken down, without walls.” When a Christian fails to rule and control his spirit in the Lord, he becomes a big problem to the body of Jesus Christ. The ability to control your anger is highly necessary for your spiritual development.
When you are ruled by the spirit of anger, you can never please God because your ways will be contrary to His ways. That is the reason why the Bible says in James 1:20, “For the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.” In fact, anger is one of the natures of the flesh listed in Galatians 5:20. The spirit of anger is contrary to the Holy Spirit; and anyone who is led by it can never produce the righteousness of God. Therefore, every Christian is hereby admonished to endeavor by all means master the art of self-control in Christ Jesus.
Daily Tip: A Christian should not be ruled by the spirit of anger because it can never produce the righteousness of God in him. Shalom!
Golden Text: A fool vents all his feelings, but a wise man holds them back (Proverbs 29:11).
