TOPIC: The Two Men Who Fought To Death (2)
BASIC SCRIPTURES: Luke 17; James 1:19-27
Remember yesterday’s devotional about the two men who ANGRILY killed themselves because of their wives! James 1: 19 says, “Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.” USE THIS PRINCIPLE AS A DAILY GUIDE/ CODE as you live on planet earth -BE SLOW TO ANGER (wrath).
Proverbs 10: 19 says – “In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise.” LEARN TO SPEAK FEW WORDS! See Proverbs 16: 32: “He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.”
BE SLOW TO ANGER BECAUSE MANY WILL PROVOKE YOU DAILY! This is a wisdom key to living! Hear this: SPEAK WHEN YOU ARE ANGRY AND YOU WILL MAKE THE BEST SPEECH YOU WILL EVER REGRET!
Proverbs 17: 27 – “He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.” SPEAK LESS than you know! Wise men and women SPARE their words! Only a FOOL will reveal it ALL! Ah!
I see RESTORATION TAKING PLACE because the Holy Ghost is showing me that there are users of today’s devotional that have LOST relationships and HELPERS because of their WORDS! I hear the LORD say: “What was damaged with your tongue in the past will be UNDONE and RESTORED if you fast and pray for 2 days.” Wow!
Catch this now: Always try to manage your anger because people cannot manage their stupidity! Jesus said: “OFFENCES WILL ALWAYS COME” (Luke 17:1)! Anger does not solve anything. It builds nothing but it can destroy everything! A Chinese proverb says: “If you are patient in one moment of ANGER, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow.” Oh God, help us!
The Bible makes provision for people that offend you foolishly or deliberately. Ephesians 4:26 (yesterday’s devotional) says: “Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil’’ Wow! ANGER OPENS A DOOR FOR THE DEVIL TO OPERATE IN YOUR LIFE OR MINISTRY! Yes! Anger is an effective weapon, which the devil uses for mass and self- destruction!
Any time you are offended, pause for ten seconds before you say or do anything. This will give you time to think fast. Too many people have done permanent damage to their lives and destinies, just in one temporary moment of anger. Don’t be the next victim! Pray now!
