Ephesians 4:31-32; "Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you."
In the scripture above, Apostle Paul was admonishing the church in Ephesus to be free from all form of anger, slander and malice among brethren. He encouraged them to forgive one another because unforgiveness hinders the power of God.
In the story of Moses, we read that he could not get into the promise land due to a simple disobedience and this disobedience to God was caused by anger. Anger can hinder the glory of God from manifesting in our lives, you can lose your salvation when your anger can't be controlled.
To some people, these weaknesses are inherited, to some others they are strongholds built in their minds due to their environment while to another it's through association with friends or colleagues and these strongholds have limited them in all their struggles.
Thank God for the Holy Spirit, it was given to us as a helper to overcome these weaknesses. If you avail yourself to the Holy Spirit, he will help you get rid of anger, bitterness, slander, malice and unforgiveness. It will not disappear all at once but little by little as your faith keeps growing, the power of God will transform you to a better person.
Ezekiel 36:26 says; "A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh."
Dear Lord, I thank you for your Holy Spirit. I reject every form of anger, bitterness, slander, malice and unforgiveness in my life. I declare that I have the mind of Christ in Jesus name! Amen!
