A fool gives full vent to his anger,but a wise man keeps himself under control" - Proverbs 29:11. Today's topic is on Anger, Guys many of us let the devil win by not controlling our anger.
Why is this?  Anger is not of the lord, it makes us do things that we won't do on a normal day. Mans anger does not bring the righteous life that God desires for us, when your angry different thoughts come to mind which is the devil speaking to you and trying to manipulate you. Many of us let the devil win by giving a response. Guys do you know not all situations need reactions, sometimes you don't need to reply to every thing someone says to you. I had a friend who used to say silence was the best answer for a fool, i thought she was just being immature and all but it always worked for her because she never got into any heated arguments or fights. That silence you might wonder thats so immature, "i need to say my mind and let the person know i was hurt too and their wrong" but do you know two wrongs don't make a right. While you're there trying to talk and explain yourself do you know the person might not be listening to you, most people don't actually listen to understand you but instead they listen to reply you and then the conversation won't go anywhere. But when you're silent and you don't speak you'll actually see how its going to benefit you so much, because then you won't give the person any reply and when the person is tired of talking they'll leave and most times they feel very stupid. Anger is of the devil guys, if someone is annoying you or saying something you don't like and you already told them you don't like it. If this person continues, then just walk out of that room and pray about it after praying do something to keep you busy. Some people are just very jobless, they don't have anything to do so they love to tease people a lot without actually thinking. This is where the devil starts to do his useless work, he'll start trying to manipulate you in your head you'll be hearing things like "how can you let him or her talk to you like that, are you dumb? you're not even strong". You don't need to prove yourself to anybody, anyone that thinks you need to fight to speak to everything anyone says that person is not a good friend probably still immature and doesn't have christ in him or her. I know yes we are young and when some one does something stupid, even though in your own mind you don't want to react but you just want to show your guys that you are a bad babe or bad guy. After showing that your a bad babe or guy please tell me what did you achieve? did they give you a medal or oh you earned mans respect but failed your own lord. What a shame, guys please we need to be wiser and not let the devil use us like this. When you're in the spirit, and you pray well nothing can happen to you. Guys yes i get angry sometimes, and i just want to address the person and react but then i think what am i gaining from getting angry and reacting. Just come out and tell your friend you didn't like what they did and if they own up to it and apologize then just forget it and act like it never happened don't bring it up again its called forgiveness and when you forgive you also forget what the person did don't use it to judge them later. Remember you do a lot of things in secret, but God forgives you so who are you not to forgive?. Don't let anger get the best of you, you'll end up saying things you would regret and at the end of the day you'll wish you never said or did it in the first place and theres nothing worse than " i told you so, i wish i never said it or only if i had listened". When am angry and i need to vent, i cry out in my room and speak to God on how i feel and it always works  don't turn to man first for comfort always go to God he will always be there and speak to you through his words(the bible). Music helps me too , don't let the devil use you and don't get angry till the next morning well i use to be like this i could keep a grudge till the next day but i realized i can't claim that i love God and am saved if am doing that. " In your anger do not sin, do not let the sun go down while you're still angry".  So guys you  never know what tomorrow would bring so if you're angry with anyone right now or you're keeping a grudge just call that person, go to them , apologize if you're wrong and even if you're not wrong just make peace and love them before its too late . " Blessed are the peacemakers for they will be called children of God".  Don't let pride get in your way. "When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humble is wisdom"Proverbs 11:2.

  1. You know this piece spoke to me directly, cos I'm most guilty of this. I'm still a work in progress and I'm grateful to God that I'm a long way from where I used to be, trusting God to perfect all that's left.
