26 Be angry, but don’t sin — don’t let the sun go down before you have dealt with the cause of your anger;

via Ephesians 4:26 KJV;CJB – Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the – Bible Gateway. Ephesians 4:26 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

BE ANGRY.

That’s a strange command from GOD, wouldn’t you say?

Be angry.

I have to tell you I have no problem with being angry! I have an endless supply of things about which to be angry. The troubling part is my anger is most often connected to people. People I can’t get to. People with whom I cannot obtain an audience. Do you know what that puts my beloved through?! 🙂 So I SO need what I’m about to share with you.

Obviously ABBA is intimately acquainted with anger. I am going so far to say that it would be sin if we were not angry about certain matters. Strange as it sounds: Times arise when we NEED to be angry. So we got that part. But then what?

Be angry BUT

Don’t sin in your anger.

Let me get this straight. It can be a sin to NOT get angry and it can be sin to be angry.

Let’s read the rest of the verse.

Don’t let the sun go down before you have dealt with the cause of your anger.

Deal quickly with the root of anger. 

When we are angry we must immediately ask why am I angry?
Do I have a natural right to be angry?
Do I have a supernatural need to be angry?

The answer is crucial.
It dictates how we proceed.
It dictates how we process the anger and WHEN we process the anger.

For you see improperly processed OR unprocessed anger turns to a noose around our own heart and will choke the life out of us.

So. Are you angry today? Were you angry yesterday? And was it about the same matter? When will you deal with it? The command is plain. And the MASTER is ready, willing and able to help us process it.

Process and Proceed or
Stew and Die –
it’s our choice.

26 Be angry, but don’t sin — don’t let the sun go down before you have dealt with the cause of your anger;

Be Hidden in CHRIST,

ABBA,as I said matters about which to be angry seem endless and I don’t want to sin either way; by refusing to care enough to be angry about sin and injustices abounding around me or to respond in an unholy way or to simmer and stew about it but do nothing to help right wrongs or help rescue others caught by sin and maltreatment from others. I pray You will call; and an army of praying, holy living Christians will arise to do good in this world. Thank You for reminding me. Thank You for turning the light on, ABBA. And I pray for grace to walk in that very light. (Isaiah 61).
Thank You too now for the privilege of praying for Jamie, Terri, Lance, Carol, Rick, and some Others whose names I don’t recall but I remember their families asked. And always remembering Kerri, Dori and every person in the hearts of all who come to this page to pray. Thank You for this screen, thank You for these people, thank You for loving us. Thank You for watching over us and taking care of us. Thank You for making love, wisdom, truth, faith, forgiveness, strength, peace, comfort, joy, and all the helps we need available to us; all that is left is for us to choose and receive; HOLY SPIRIT, help us let You help us. Thank You LORD JESUS for living, dying and coming to life again forevermore. Increase our desire for You, to love You, co-labor with You and when it’s time see Your holy face, face to face. Thank You, LORD.
