Don’t let your anger become a stumbling block to spiritual maturity

Romans 12:19-21 (AMP)  9 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave the way open for [God’s] wrath; for it is written, Vengeance is Mine, I will repay (requite), says the Lord.  20 But if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals upon his head.  21 Do not let yourself be overcome by evil, but overcome (master) evil with good.

When we are angry we always want to place blame on other people.  Why be mad at people instead of the Devil?  The way to get the Devil back is to not let situations get to us, do good and be kind no matter how badly we’ve been hurt.  That’s spiritual warfare.  When we start doing things like that we break the power Satan has over us and we open the door for God to bless us.

Turn your anger to God and let God resolve the situations you are angry over.  Don’t let the Devil be a stumbling block for you to reach spiritual maturity.  Make a decision that you will press past your feelings and be a blessing to everyone you know.

Ephesians 4:26 (AMP)   26 When angry, do not sin; do not ever let your wrath (your exasperation, your fury or indignation) last until the sun goes down.

My true belief is that the best way to preach is by our actions and not our words. However, we need some daily inspiration to keep us on our path. We as Christians have a responsibility not to judge others by our words but to show the love of Christ by loving them where they are at on their personal journey in life...and if they never turn their life over to Christ, continue to love them for who they are - after all God does.
