Bride of Christ

Don't go to bed with the devil! 8/4/14

And “don’t sin by letting anger control you.” Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry, for anger gives a foothold to the devil.   Eph. 4:26  NLT 

Anger is an emotional response.   Anger is a dangerous emotion!   Anger can control you!  Even Darth Vader knew that, "Anger will give you over to the dark side"!  

People controlled by anger are easy to spot.   They are difficult to be around.    They tend to be judgmental, critical and misunderstand everything said or done.  They have little joy, no peace, and seek revenge rather than reconciliation.     Hmm... that sound like a description of the devil!

Today, someone may say or do something that could make you mad.    Beloved, please go to God with this anger before you go to bed.    Evaluate the reason you are angry.   Pray for the person who has hurt you, and ask God to forgive them... then... you forgive them too!

It' OK to be angry... but if you are... you have some work to do BEFORE the sun goes down!   After all... You don't want to go to bed with the devil!
