Topic: Take Control Of Your Anger

Scripture: He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, he who rules his [own] spirit than he who takes a city. Proverbs 16:32 (AMPC)

Joyce Meyer Daily 9 April 2022 Devotional MESSAGE

This verse illustrates the power of controlling your anger. God gave us self-control (see Galatians 5:23) to monitor our mouths, thoughts, passions, emotions, and tempers, yet many people don’t know that controlling their emotions is an option. They think the way they feel must dictate their actions.

When they get mad, they let the feeling of anger decide how long they will stay angry, and all the while it is stealing their joy from them. In Scripture, we read about Absalom, who held on to his anger for two years, allowing it to build until he ended up killing his own brother (see 2 Samuel 13).

You need to know that with God’s help, you can get over your anger. Study the Word about anger and the importance of forgiving those who hurt you and pray and ask God to give you grace and strength to forgive (see 2 Corinthians 12:9). Don’t let anger shut down the power of God in your life.

How do you deal with anger that you’ve had a long time?

Prayer Starter: Lord, please help me to forgive quickly and to never allow emotion to rule my actions, amen.
