- Allow our anger to draw us closer to God. We do this by receiving strength and comfort from His Word. If our sin causes us to be angry at ourselves, we repent and ask God to forgive us. And we must forgive ourselves, too (often this is more difficult). If the sins of others have caused us anger, we must learn to forgive them just as Christ forgave us. Forgiving others is not a choice, but a MUST, if we are to have any part in Christ.
- Let hope defuse our anger. This can
be accomplishedby starting an honest conversation with God. Ask Him to show us what’s underneath our anger and choosing to put our hope in God, not the outcome of the situation. Our hope in Christ gives us the confidence that with God all things are possible.
All glory to God!
