Ecclesiastes 7:9
Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.

Such an easy verse to remember and recite when times are good, but it’s quite another to apply this verse when life and our world turns upside down.

Look, there is no sin in being angry or upset, after all, anger is a human emotion. However, it is quite another thing to stay angry and even act on that anger.

When we act on anger, that is when we become like the fool. When we act on anger, we are not thinking through a situation, we are more or less acting on animal instincts. Instead of thinking, we are reacting. Sometimes, the enemy will attempt to anger you so you react a certain way.

Always calculate your reaction and never act out of anger. People who do act out of anger typically always regret their actions later, after they have had time to calm down and think things through.

Let’s talk about this word “angry” which can even mean “rage” and rage means,

Violent, uncontrollable anger.

“Uncontrollable anger” has no place in a Christian’s spirit.

Yet, as the days go by, more and more people become quick to anger, they do not think through a situation before reacting. Due to that, they harm themselves, their families, and communities. This is another sign indicating humanity’s moral compass is spinning out of control, (2 Timothy 3:1-5).

The Fear Of Man Brings A Snare

The Fear Of Man Brings A Snare

The words of men always seem to instill fear in us which brings about a snare being a trap. Yet, God’s Words always bring confidence, security, and hope.

Please my heart is hurting. I became angry be with my husband last night and told him I want to separate. He does not spend time with me like we used to, he does not communicate with me and we have not been intimate for quite awhile. I don’t know what to do I wanted to separate because I don’t want to get angry anymore. We are living with his parents and he tells them everything and every move we make, I tell him I don’t like it but he doesn’t listeñ. This causes confusion.
