“But after Xerxes’ anger had subsided, he began thinking about Vashti and what she had done and the decree he had made.” – Esther 2:1 NLT
Anger can sometimes be like insanity; it pushes people to do things which they would probably not do in their right senses.
We blame the devil for things we did in anger, but the real problem is that we open the door for the devil to wreck havoc, by not being self controlled.
The fruit of the Spirit is love, gentleness and self-control. These are qualities we must develop in our lives. We’ve got to stop boasting about our abilities to get angry easily. Make decisions on how you’d react going on, at home, at work, in school, and even in church! Anger is a weakness, not a strength; get rid of it.
God’s grace is sufficient for you.
