Slow to anger
“The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.”
Psalm 103:8 NIV
We know that the lord is slow to anger because his love for us goes beyond our understanding. But why are we quick to anger? And what are we angry about? See when we ask the question it means we are searching for the answer. The answer is not outside of us it’s actually inside. We get impatient with ourselves which causes us to be quick to anger. When things are not going our way or it’s not moving at the way we would like. But I say lets see and try it gods way! Things are released in divine time and order. Let the lord’s hand be your guide. Release the anger and embrace his love for you and trust that the battle was already won because we have the victory in us through him!
The Fruit of the Holy Spirit is a biblical term that sums up nine attributes of a Christian life according to Paul in his Letter to the Galatians: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” Many are experiencing mixed emotions in these days concerning Christ stand on today’s issues. Why has there been no relief from God they say, or where is your God they ask? Many have fallen away from the faith and even stopped teaching their children the faith walk. The Bible prepared us prophetically for the end times.
End times lining up with Luke 21 showing wars and famine, families riding against one another, but if we do not read daily and teach our kids the word and prayer as they rise and set daily what responsibility will we have played in this worlds end time?
Deut. 6 is a perfect example of realigning the family to begin a course of taken things back that we gave they enemy.
The fruit of the spirit is what we’re striving for character wise. If we continue looking at Christ rather than crisis we will make the strives Christ in each of us desires, but if we claim all the hurt and pain we see and have experienced as worldly individuals we will forever find ourselves missing the important lessons in life that are called to remind us of our Divine Kinship. The lessons that soften the heart allowing seeds of transformation to enter in for the harvest to come into our lives. Go back to the beginning when our grand parents imparted life through the word of God in us. Live by the word of God totally, and lean not to your own understanding because deception is a trap from the enemy. Work with the fruit of the spirit and lessen the interference !
Amen.. Look to the hills not to the world and it’s distractions.
Remember every road that God led you on for those forty years in the wilderness, pushing you to your limits, testing you so that he would know what you were made of, whether you would keep his commandments or not. He put you through hard times. He made you go hungry. Then he fed you with manna, something neither you nor your parents knew anything about, so you would learn that men and women don’t live by bread only; we live by every word that comes from God’s mouth. Deut. 8:2-4
