Do you have an anger problem?  Well, the first step in solving anger is to ADMIT.

  1. ADMITTING that you have an anger problem is an open door to your deliverance.  Don't let the devil use pride, shame, or anything else to prevent you from getting your deliverance.  Many times we are afraid to admit we have a problem because we have been made to feel ashamed of many things by others.  

Psalm 32:5.  "I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid.  I said, I will confess my trangressions unto the Lord, and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin."

 2.   The second step is TAKING.

Take the problem to God.   Confess the problem to God and ask for His help.  Repent of the sins you have committed and ask for God's mercy.  God's anointing power is able to remove and destroy the power of anger over you. Fasting along with prayer will help.  You may have to pray several times, but do not lose hope because the Bible encourages us to ask, knock, and seek.

You pray that God will give you the wisdom and control over your anger.  You do not pray for Him to eliminate it because anger, used appropriately is positive.   It's' okay for me to get angry against injustice, presumptuous sin, and a total disregard for the things of God.  If you were to completely remove your ability to become angry, you would not have the capacity to get mad about these things.  Remember the Bible states, Be angry and sin not. (Ephesians 4:26.)

Woman of Praise

 The Tongue
Lesson 7

Philippians 2:3.  "Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves."

The antidote for pride is to see yourself smaller than others, at all times.  Whenever you find yourself thinking that you are better than someone else, know that you are treading on dangerous soil and work to correct it quickly.  God hates pride and, in the Bible there are numerous examples of how He dealt with those who operated in PRIDE.  Too many people in the body of Christ have a proclivity to feel superior to others.   

Ephesians 3:7.  "But unto everyone of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.  Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men."

Being used by God should not engender PRIDE; but HUMILITY because He is the one who anoints.  He is the one who equips.  He is also the one who chooses to distribute the gifts and the measure of the gifts, the way He likes.  The gifts of the five-fold ministry were all given for the same reason:

Ephesians 4:11-13.  "And he gave some apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ."
Verse 14.  "Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ."

So, from what I can see here, no one can feel superior because the gifts are all a means to the same end.  They are all given by Christ, so He gets the credit for our gifts and not us.  So how can you be prideful?  If anything, you should be humbled to be used by Him: THE KING OF KINGS.

If you are the type of individual who feels like you are more special than someone else to God, know you are swimming in dangerous waters.  We are all special to God.  The Bible says His thoughts toward us are thoughts that we should be successful.  3 John 2 states that, He wishes above all things that we should prosper and be in health as our soul prospers.  This desire is for all Christians, so how can you feel more special than another.  This is foolish and prideful thinking, and will lead to shame and disgrace if not corrected.

Proverbs 16:18.  "Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall."
Proverbs 29:23.  "A man's pride shall bring him low; but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit."
Proverbs 11:2.  "When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom."
Proverbs 14:3.  "In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them." 

Save yourself the trouble and begin to walk in the fear of the Lord now.  The consequences for walking in pride is never a pretty one.  Examine your thoughts, words, and actions toward others and amend them.  Inspect your thoughts, words, and actions about yourself and change them.  Walking in pride is walking in foolishness.  Choose the path of wisdom and walk in a manner that is pleasing to your God.  And now, may the Lord keep you always and cause His face to shine upon you.  God bless you.  Grace and peace. 

Proverbs 8:13.  "The fear of the Lord is to hate evil:  PRIDE, arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate."



A little prayer,
is all you need, 
to put things into perspective.

The School Bus
by K. Bamkefa

On my way to drop my daughter to school, one morning, I noticed a school bus with it's stop sign's arm extended.  I was not late, but, for some strange reason--impatience I guess--I made a u-turn and a first left-turn hoping I would be able to evade the delay by finding another way out.  I began, like a mole, to tunnel my way through the streets, desperately looking for a way of escape.  The more I drove, the more I realized that I had found myself in a circle, just going around and around and returning to the same place every time, like a spinning wheel.

Frustrated and penitent that I did not exercise discretion, I decided to return to my starting-point.   But, if you don't know where you are, how do you get back to the place from which you came.  Well, suddenly, by the amazing grace of God, I saw another car in the maze and decided to follow it.  I trailed it until I got to a place I was familiar with.  I made a quick left and then right, and when I got back to where I started, the school-bus was just leaving.  

Sometimes in life, we make choices that put us off-course because of our restiveness; but repentance and prayer can correct our way.  Getting to your destiny hinges on you following the track of God. Not every turn is designed to take you there, so knowing what the will of God is, is crucial in getting you to the promise land.  Grace and Peace.

         Proverbs 16:25.  "There is a way that seemeth right unto a man; but the end thereof are the ways of death."


His Banqueting Table

1 John 1:5-7

"This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.  If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth.  But if we walk in the light as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin."

2 Chronicles 20:13-15

"And all Judah stood before the Lord, with their little ones, their wives, and their children.  Then upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, came the Spirit of the Lord in the midst of the congregration; And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's.

2 Chronicles 16:9-11

"For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.  Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.  Then Asa was wroth with the seer, and put him in a prison house; for he was in a rage with him because of this thing.  And Asa oppressed some of the people the same time.  And, behold, the acts of Asa, first and last, lo, they are written in the Book of the Kings of Judah and Israel."

1 John 8-10
"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.  If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us."

Ezekiel 37:1-3
"The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones.  And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.  And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live?  And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest."
