Anger | What is God's Promise?

Penulis : A. James on Thursday, March 7, 2013 | 12:00 PM

When you think of anger, what do you associate it with? Right up front I want to say there are different types of anger. There is the kind where things in your every day life sets something off inside you that you can't control. Then, there is the anger that we feel when someone has done us wrong.

For instance, you may feel anger when the same person at work calls off sick constantly leaving you to work late or come in on your days off. So much anger may build up inside you that you want to give them a taste of their own medicine.

Have you been there?

Anger - What's God's Promise?

When you are constantly having people in your life cause you trouble, or you're being bullied, or your co-worker is so mean and vindictive that you just want to accidentally spill your hot cup of coffee in their lap, you need to turn to God and His Word.

In Romans 12:19-21 KJV, we find these verses...

19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.

21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

The bible plainly tells us that we are not suppose to take matters into our own hands, no matter how badly we want to see someone wearing our cup of coffee.

Instead, we are to leave matters such as this to Him.

So, what are we suppose to do with people who cause our anger levels to soar because they are mean, or are a bully, or any number of other un-Christ-like ways?

After turning the situation over to God, we are to be kind. In verse 20, God tells us that if our enemy is hungry we should feed him and if our enemy is thirsty we are to give them something to drink.

You've heard the old saying, 'Kill'em with kindness'.

This old saying works perfectly here.

It can be extremely difficult to turn the whole thing over to God. After all, we want things done right now! Thankfully, God doesn't work hastily. Instead, He waits until just the right moment to show someone the wrong they have done.

Often, we may never witness what God does to take care of the situations we want Him to take over. But, whatever the amount of time, we can be sure that God can and He will do what he promises even if it does take years for the perfect moment.

Trust in God and His promise to take care of the things that anger us when someone is doing us wrong. Remember He says..

19 ...for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
