In the scripture below, Paul quotes King David from Psalm 4:4 which is simply advising us to “let it go”. David became angry because the Israelites continued to be unfaithful to God. This is the same frustration that we may feel today when see the world continue to do the same. God’s response was a warning to us not to let that frustration turn to sin. Don’t focus on what others are doing wrong and search our own hearts instead.
“In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, – Ephesians 4:26
Feeling anger is natural, but acting upon it is sin…even if we convince ourselves we are justified because the Lord is on our side. Before we go to sleep at night, we are instructed to make our own peace with God. Trust Him to deal with those who have aroused our anger.
Whether you have been harboring anger for many years or something this morning has caused you to get angry, its time to let it go. Let God fight that battle and focus on the good things. (Philippians 4:8)
