Day 79 Anger
Sunday, December 11, 2016
You must not worship any of the gods of neighboring nations, 15 for the Lord your God, who lives among you, is a jealous God. His anger will flare up against you, and he will wipe you from the face of the earth. - Deuteronomy 6:14-15
We wither beneath your anger; we are overwhelmed by your fury. You spread out our sins before you, our secret sins, and you see them all. We live our lives beneath your wrath, ending our years with a groan. - Psalm 90:7-9
God tells us it is okay to be angry, but we are not to sin. We need to have a spirit of reconciliation, making amends and compromising. When we don't have this perspective of quickly resolving conflict, our anger festers. We end up making room for the devil, allowing Satan to have a foothold in our lives.
Forgiving Lord, I surrender my anger to You. Please give me a spirit of reconciliation and the opportunity to make amends.
