Recently I have found myself under attack. I always try to be loving, kind and fair to people, but not everyone sees me in this light. My natural instinct when I am attacked is to be angry. I want to stand up and defend myself and prove that they are wrong! These vengeance feelings are not of God. In His word, God says, “reconcile with your advisories quickly”. Isn’t it funny that I can think of myself as such a Godly woman and yet, I get filled with all the junk everyone else feels too? My solution to this will be humility. I believe humility is trusting God to handle it.
How about you? Do you have a situation that is making you angry? Do you feel you are being treated unfair? Do you want to be validated?
We all go through many types of conflicts. Be inspired to be slow to wrath and let God handle it.
“Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”
James 1:12 (NIV)
“ Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.”
James 1:19 (NIV)
“My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,”
Be fit and be blessed,
