Ephesians 4:26

Release Your Anger Daily

26Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:

Bible KJV http://www.biblegateway.com
Don’t let the sun go down on your anger. Release your anger daily!

Did you know that you should release your anger daily? Sometimes, we hold onto them intentionally or perhaps unintentionally. At times we cling to them far too long. By holding anger and sin, we are allowing the enemy to have a place within us. The longer we hold onto rage and iniquities, the more they grow and with that, we allow Satan and his host to work in us with free reign. Making it very important to release our anger daily!

The author is suggesting that our wrath must be dealt with by the end of the day. By releasing our anger and sin, the enemy can no longer have a foothold on us.

Don’t let anger fester!

My prayer for Ephesians 4:26

Heavenly Father – You are the Lord who can help me release my anger daily.

Thank you Lord for being such an amazing God. In you I can always find a way to deal with every situation I am faced with, including anger and sin.

Sometimes Lord, I want to hold onto them. I’ve been hurt in such a way that the anger is the only thing that keeps me going. Embracing the anger, leads to sin.

I know that holding onto them is exactly what the enemy wants. Satan is using anger to keep my mind occupied. And on top of that, he continues to increases the level of anger.

Please always help me to see that this is a huge plot of Satan’s. He jumps in immediately and builds on my feelings. I can feel my heart begin to race, my thoughts run rampant and my blood pressure rises.

The enemy is using my hurt and building on it. It’s his main job to keep me from finding a more peaceful way to work out the situation. He’s not taking the chance for me to have the opportunity to call out to you Lord.

The enemy knows that through you, I can have peace within me and without. When Satan keeps me away from you, he knows that my anger and sin will continue to grow and eventually I will be consumed with a vehement desire to keep the anger alive.

In these situations, I need your help Lord. Please come to my aid. Don’t allow my anger to grow and consume me.

The enemy has many ways to get a foothold on me. Believing that I have dealt with the anger and sin, the process of the anger forging deep inside my soul may have already started.

Help me Lord to find the true calm, the inner stillness, the peace that passes understanding. In you, I can find tranquility, love and forgiveness, in a situation where peace usually can’t be found. Help me to release my anger daily. Father, you are my peace. Thank you Lord.

In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray, Amen

1 TIMOTHY 1:17

One and Only Wise God – Know Him and Praise Him

Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen

Bible KJV http://wwwbiblegateway.com
Gives Bible chapter and verse

Paul recognized the one and only wise God and he wanted people to understand and to praise Him as well. When teaching others about the Lord, Paul included some of these attributes that he knew God to be: King eternal, immortal and invisible to our eyes, but not to our hearts. Paul worshipped the one and only wise God and wanted to make sure the people understood that he did not worship or even believe in other gods nor idols.

Why is He the one and only wise God?

Why did Paul say our Father was the one and only wise God? In Paul’s era (and even today) there had always been other gods in this world, however, those gods are mostly carved by men, out of gold, wood, or other materials . These gods could not see, hear, speak or even help people, and yet they were continually worshipped.

Paul praised the Heavenly God and encouraged others to do the same, because the one and only wise God can see, hear, lead and guide us. Also God sent his only Son to earth in human form, to experience everything as a human. Jesus was crucified and rose again to life to become our Saviour, which is something that no other god has ever been able to accomplish (death followed by resurrection). Because God is made up of the Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit), no other god has the understanding of human life like the God of Heaven .

Unlike other gods, our Father is the one and only wise God, who deserves our admiration and respect because he is the Alpha and the Omega and will continue to be so, evermore. He is the first and the last, the beginning and the end. For Christians today, He is the one and only wise God. He deserves reverence and our honour, praise and glory for eternity!

How can I find this unique, wise God?

God may be invisible to our eyes but it’s important for us to look at him with our faith and hearts. When we look with these, we know, without doubt that He is there. It’s important that we worship and follow God in the same way as Paul did; being thankful that He is in our lives, guiding, nurturing, teaching, leading and loving us.

Paul was singing praises to Him, and telling others that He is truly the one and only wise God. When we choose Him we will want to worship him, with thanks, glory and honour; happily, completely, and with knowledge that God is working in us every day of our lives.

My prayer for 1 Timothy 1:17

Heavenly Father, the only wise God

It is my pleasure to praise you today and every day.

Father, you are always in my thoughts and prayers. Every step I take, I am reminded of how you walk with me. I pray that when I look at you with my heart and with love. I pray that I will realize that because of your deep love for me, you are always standing with me, regardless of the situation.

You are very worthy of my love and honour. You are worthy of my prayers. May my heart always be open to you Lord. May I always remember that it is my privilege to worship and honour you, for who you are.

Draw me closer to you. Please fill my heart to overflow with your love, so that I in turn, can be your representative today, as Paul was in his time, telling others of your magnificence.

I bless your Holy name.

In the name of your son, I pray. Amen
