And “don’t sin by letting anger control you.” Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry,”Ephesians 4:26
Anger is the wind that blows out the lamp of the mind. When you are angry your flesh can get in the way of what the spirit is doing. That’s why the Bible said “be angry but sin not” meaning process your emotions but don’t act on them, and don’t stay in that angry place. You need an overcoming mindset when dealing with conflict. Once you get to the spiritual root of the issue, there is no reason to stay upset. Once you have prayed and given it over to God, there is no reason to stay in that angry place. True forgiveness is not about the other person, it’s about setting your mind and heart free from the situation. Forgives is all about your heart being light.
Galatians 5:7 says For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do.
In moments of betrayal when we feel we have been done wrong that’s not the moment to have a fleshly rant. Romans 12:19 says Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” And ranting about it on social media and other places for others to join in in what looks like them aiding us, when we are really having a fleshly emotionally rant and seeking vengeance upon ourselves. The dangers of this “not so big” act cause us to speak from our hurt and pain, then others jump in with half the story and aid us from a false and fleshly perspective. They now are speaking against that person and it becomes gossip and discord. That’s witchcraft. Small problems become big problems when you take your frustrations to people and not God. Real humility will have you process that betrayal in prayer first.
There are so many examples I can display about how many of us is harboring unhealed aches and pains, and that has now turned into anger and unforgiveness. But the Lord desires for us to be free mentally and spiritually. There is nothing another person has robbed you of that the good Lord cannot restore. Remember, what the devil means to harm you, God will turn it around for your good. So then, let today be the day that you let go of all your past hurt and pain’s, and forgive people who have wronged you without an apology. Let this be the day that you walk forth in healing and establish a true connection with the most high God through you’re willing and forgiving heart.
