Life Hack: Be Slow to Anger

Life Hack: Be Slow to Anger

Better to be patient than powerful; better to have self-control than to conquer a city. Proverbs 16:32

This past week has been one of those weeks where you’re like, Devil – you really are trying to f*ck with me, aren’t you?

Ok then, you’re on.

First off, did you know that the devil knows you better than your closest of friends? I know scary, But you need to know this in order to be better prepared to play in the spiritual game.

Secondly, you need to know that – The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy.  John 10:10

Like a thesis in college, you have your foundation – and knowing what the Devil is after, is crucial in overcoming and ultimately winning the battle against him.

What is causing the quarrels and fights among you? Don’t they come from the evil desires at war within you? james 4:1

It’s tough because we learn these lessons through the people around us. We all have a thorn in our side, some have more than others. There is always that one thing, or that one person in any given season that makes you want to go to war, guns blazing!

But no, The truth is…

Fools vent their anger, but the wise quietly hold it back. Proverbs 29:11

Yeah you heard me. The devil wants you to rise to anger because he knows that you’ll do dumb sh*t to curse yourself. So you know what you do, knowing that? You say okay,I see what you did there – but what I’m gonna do, to prove that I’m better than this, is be slow to anger, and to be wise and calm about it.

That’s true savagery, right? Have you ever had someone do something stupid just to get a reaction out of you? Knowing that it SHOULD bring out a reaction, but you don’t react. Well, #WIN

The score: Devil – 0  Us – 1

What I want you to remember is that when you’re up against negative forces, you have to look at the root, the intention in order to remove the problem. Don’t focus on WHAT is actually happening, but rather WHY it is happening. In that you will always find truth. Ask yourself, what’s the motive?

Obscene stories, foolish talk, and coarse jokes—these are not for you. Instead, let there be thankfulness to God. Eph 5:4

Ask God: What’s in it for me?

I know what you’re thinking, the title seems pretty selfish, allow me to explain. Let’s consider the idea that most people don’t get what they want because they don’t ask God, and actually believe that they will get whatever they ask.
