How Long?

Do you ever get angry? I’m sure the answer’s yes – I know I do. What about at God? This is not so easy to answer because no one wants to admit they get angry with God but all of us have or will at some point.

Psalm 13:1-3 (https://bit.ly/2M66MTf)

The Psalms have lots of examples of people who were angry with God. Being angry with God is not the problem; He’s big enough to handle it. It’s what we do next that’s important. Simply talk to Him about it, let it all out. God’s there, waiting to hear from you. This is something awesome to know about God.

Sticks and stones

“Sticks and stones may break my bones but your silly words, will probably kill me.” A spin on a saying you’ve probably heard before.

“A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” Proverbs 15:1 (http://bit.ly/2Pe7eBy)

The wise book of Proverbs tells us to watch our words! Language is a wonderful thing – choose your words correctly!

Why give an aggressive answer, when a gentle one is better?

Life can be cruel and unkind at times, so why add to it by speaking harshly?

Ephesians 4: 26 says “Do not let the sun go down on your anger.”
Do you battle with getting angry? And do you hold onto grudges?

Paul spoke to the church in Ephesus and he speaks to you and me too with incredibly wise words. Don’t let your day end without dealing with your anger! The next line after that verse says “otherwise you give the devil a foothold.”

If anger is not dealt with, it will imprison you. Who do you need to forgive?
And is it maybe time you ask Jesus to help you deal with your anger?

Any WordSpacers out there ever been mad at God? That’s ok! If God is who he says he is, then he’s more than big enough to handle our tantrums.

More good news: you can take your anger to God in prayer. He knows you’re angry, anyway. You may as well pour it all out at his feet – as loud and furious as you like.

Just don’t be surprised if he quiets your anger with his grace. Don’t be surprised if you come away a little awestruck.

‘So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.’ (Hebrews 4v16 – http://bit.ly/1ah6Vq7 )
