Dealing With Anger God's Way
 

As with all Biblical topics, you can only fully use this after you have been born again to be God’s child. You must be a Christian.

The Bible has answers to all life's problems. the Holy Spirit helps you use the commandments that are in the Bible.

 

Mar 12:29  And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: 

Mar 12:30  And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. 

Mar 12:31  And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. 

  

 Pro 29:11  A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.

 

You must control your temper.

  • Controlling anger is usually a matter of setting Godly priorities. For example a man may blow up at his wife and children, but not at his boss. His reason is that if he blows up at his boss he will get fired. This is setting the money he gets from the job at a higher priority than the relationship with his wife and children.
  • Uncontrolled temper is sin, as so is not pleasing to God. Also, because it is sin, God has given us answers for the problem of uncontrolled anger. (See Ephesians 4: 31-32.)
  • Instead of blowing up some hold anger in and do a “slow burn”. That person holds it in, and thinks about it, and resentment grows. This is also sin because it is not handling anger God’s way. (See Ephesians 4:26.) Anger must be resolved before going to sleep at night.
  • The challenge to our spirit is to be angry and sin not.
  • Anger is a proper and useful emotion when it is expressed consistent with the scriptures and when used for purposes set forth by God. (See Psalm 7:11 and Mark 3:5.)
  • Blowing up and holding anger in do not solve problems, but they do create new and worse problems.
  • Realize that anger is a powerful and motivating force that God intended to be used to destroy something, But of course not other people, or our own bodies.
  • Words spoken because of anger must be directed at destroying the problem and not at destroying the person.
  • To blow up or to burn does not address the problem.

 

God’s Way

  • Let God and Godly counsel train you to release anger under control. (See Ephesians 4: 15.)
  • Pray that God assists you to release and talk about the problems that make you angry. Learn how to yield your rights.
  • Pray about the love of God growing in your life and actions.
  • Make yourself accountable to mature Christians that you trust.
  • Study the Bible about the attributes of Godly love.
  • Seek counsel and support from mature Christians.
