Too Fast to Get Furious
June 19, 2007 9 Comments
I would like to ask how I can eliminate my attitude of being so furious and angry immediately whenever I encounter some difficulties. Kindly help me I know my actions are not acceptable but I can’t help it since I was a child.
No man can attain renewal by himself alone.
(Jeremiah 10:23) “O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.”
You will need the intervention of the Lord to be renewed from evil things you are accustomed to do.
(Jeremiah 13:23) “Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.”
By himself, a black Ethiopian can not change the natural color of his or her skin, nor can a leopard remove its spot. It is only through God’s power that a person can attain renewal.
(Proverbs 16:9) “A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.”
Pray for God’s guidance and power to intervene in your person, especially in your heart. It is divinely possible.
(Ezekiel 36:26) “A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.”
Enrich your heart with unfeigned love and hatred and anger will be gone away.
(Proverbs 22:24-25) “Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go: Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul.”
Follow Christ and you will be renewed.
(2 Corinthians 5:17) “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
