Take Heart And Gain Strength


May the people of God lift up their eyes to Him who has never failed

His people and who is always faithful and who has a plan and a timetable.
May they take heart and be strengthened by His faithfulness.

“Counting on God’s rule to prevail, I take heart and gain
strength…” (Hab.3:19, Msg)

The Anger Filter

ColoredLenses
Unresolved anger can become a distorted filter or darkened understanding.  The positive person sees life through rose-colored glasses.  Likewise, the angry, grieving see life through a bitter-lemon-yellow perspective.  Their position and perspective affects their view of self, God, people and situations, and it destroys self-confidence, health, lifestyle and destiny. Unresolved anger can become a generational curse!  It can be passed on as an inheritance.  Sometimes we cannot find the root of anger because it is in a past generation and it will take the Spirit of God to reveal it!

Awaken From Slumber


As the people of God assemble today, may they be
stirred to awaken to the light of Christ who shows them
the path away from fraud and error. May they awaken
from all sense of slumber and not dose at time of opportunity.

“Wake up from your sleep, Climb out of your coffins;
Christ will show you the light!” (Eph. 5:14, Msg)


Release From The Pattern Of Anger

BirdFlyAwayUnresolved anger can become a driving force, a passion, an energy that can seem good and productive, while it undermines like termites until the core of character, integrity, hope and joy of life is eaten away. Unresolved anger can become depression, fear, sickness and even a pattern of failure. I know a young lady whose anger at criticism and injustice as a child kept her grieving. She became a prisoner of her focus. Because she could not take her eyes off of her victimization, she remained a victim, actually positioning herself for more criticism and injustice. Resolving her anger was the release from the pattern.

Loosing The Anchor Of Anger

BoatAdrift_1Anger is a strong passion, which of itself is not sin; but we sin, or miss the mark, by how we DEAL with it, (Eph 4:26-32). We MUST resolve it according to Godly principles, and resolve it QUICKLY! Ignoring anger does not make it go away. Anger is tangible, as literal as a hot coal. It will burn and destroy . . . health, relationships, opportunities, destiny. Exploding in temper does not resolve anger because even after the bomb blows, it regenerates if there is no CHANGE of heart or issues! Unresolved anger can change form until it is unrecognizable. It can become a witty cynicism. If my jokes and remarks make people laugh the anger doesn’t seem so dangerous! But anger can anchor GRIEF to our lives!

Allow Reason

BoatSailing
May we allow the Holy Spirit to reason with us when we get over into a
mentality of frustration and anger, and begin to express views and attitudes
that aren’t even reasonable. May He help us to recover in a timely fashion
and grant us grace to repair the breaches.

“Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD…” (Isa.1:18, KJV)

Recognizing Anger In Grief

CloudLightSunINABILITY or REFUSAL to be comforted can be a sign that the roots of grief have become infected with  anger and unforgiveness.  It is sometimes difficult to recognize anger or unforgiveness because they have many faces.  Anger can SEEM like a responsibility. ‘I must stay angry to protect my family.  I must stay angry to protect myself from this ever happening again.’  Or, ‘I must stay angry to insure the guilty party does not go unpunished!’  Anger can even seem to be a positive force and be used as a form of power or control in chaotic times.  However, the long range repercussions are not good.   James 1:20, “For man’s anger does NOT bring about the righteous life that God desires. (NIV)
