Do you ever just get mad? And I mean really really mad? Maybe for no reason at all. Or maybe over the smallest thing? “The root cause of a spirit of anger is tension from past hurts and guilt. Unless these experiences are resolved through repentance and forgiveness, we will continue to experience bouts of anger when our tension points are triggered.” Anger can cause us to be irritable, impatient, raise our voices, say things we don’t mean, and react in the moment. I felt the need to post this to break this off of my life. I’ve noticed over the past two months that I’ve tended to grow angry a lot easier and more often than normal. That’s not good for me or the people around me. I don’t want to be someone who makes the people around them miserable and I don’t want to be miserable either. Holding things in and letting them build up is like a volcano bound to erupt. The Bible tells us to rid anger from our lives. James 1:19 says “My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.” I declare over my life that the spirit of anger is broken off. It will not come over me or have control over my life anymore. I found this awesome prayer and one step is to pray for yourself. Pray for the person making you angry. Pray for the situation. Pray for God to soften your heart.
“Right now, you need to be changed, and the person who’s hurt you needs to be changed. Give yourself permission to just focus on you for now. Ask God to change you and get rid of your anger despite the rotten situation you’re in.”
It also important to express love and to give forgiveness. These two things release a huge amount of anger. If you find yourself getting angry and it seems to be uncalled for think about why you’re really feeling that way.
