Lesson On Anger 07-02-19

Good day and praise the Lord for another day on the path that leads to Him. I was counseling someone close to me last evening on the subject of anger when I got an urging in my spirit to write about Saul. Get ready for what came out of that urging.

Today’s Prayer

Father, I come before you on behalf of my brothers and sisters in Christ this morning with this prayer. I have a tugging on my heart today to pray for those that know you but have fallen away. I pray right now that they will repent and come back and not just sit at your feet, but crawl into your lap and ask for forgiveness. There are so many that feel that they can’t go on, but You promise that you will never leave or forsake us. Touch their hearts today Lord and bring them back into the fold. I pray this in JESUS’ wonderful name, Amen and Amen.

Anger Born of the Spirit

Then the Spirit of God came powerfully upon Saul, and he became very angry.1 Samuel 11:6

The Bible tells us that Saul had just been crowned as the new king of Israel. His first battle was upon him, and he had to bring a new nation together to fight the Ammonites. The Spirit of GOD fell on Saul and resulted in righteous anger against GOD’s enemies. GOD led him to send an unusual “direct-mail”package to all the regions where the people lived. He cut up pieces of oxen and sent the pieces throughout Israel with a warning-“Join the army or your oxen will be as these!”
Sometimes GOD uses strong measures to accomplish His purposes. In this case, fear and intimidation were used to motivate the army of GOD to be as one. GOD must have felt this is what was needed to drive this army to become a unified force.
GOD knows the only way to achieve success is if the army is one. A house divided cannot stand. What will it take to unify your company, your church, and your family to be one? Unless you are one, you cannot win the battles you will face. Ask GOD to make you and those you walk with to be one in mission and one in spirit.

Quote of the Day

While we are zealous for good works, let us be careful not to put them in the place of Christ’s righteousness, and not to advance anything which may betray others into so dreadful a delusion.

Matthew Henry
