“Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: 1:20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.”
Anger is not part of the fruit of the Spirit, it is a natural product of the flesh. It’s innate, everyone born of the flesh has the nature of anger. We can’t shy away from that fact. Nobody, taught a six months old baby before he/she begins to manifest the nature of anger.
The nature grows with the child and will need help to tame it, as he/she matures. The ultimate solution to get delivered from the manifestation of the works of the flesh is to first of all get born again and exhibits the fruit of the Spirit. You can claim to be born again, but still manifests the works of the flesh like anger, if you fail to live your new life in the Spirit.
Self control is one of the fruit of the Spirit that can help you deal with the nature of anger. Be swift to hear as the scriptures said, slow to speak, slow to wrath. It is not every situation that you should respond to immediately, take a deep breath and calm your nerves until your anger is pass. You don’t take crucial decisions when you are angry, give it time. Many decisions are taking wrongly, because of the influence of anger. The anger of man does not reveal the righteousness of God. Beware of anger, don’t let it destroys you!
God bless you
Father, I pray that you enlighten the eyes of my understanding through this word. Deliver me from the spirit of anger, help me to caution myself always, in Jesus name. Amen!
