Tame Your Temper

You have a temper! There is nothing unique about that. Most people have tempers, in varying degrees, of course. God does not ask that you get rid of that temper. But He does say that if you are to be happy, it must be brought under control and rechanneled to proper use. God cannot use a man without a temper as well as one with a controlled temper. Too many professed Christians never get “wrought up” about anything; they never get indignant with injustice, with corruption in high places, or with the godless traffics which barter away the souls and bodies of men.

Prayer for the day

Use my anger to help others, Lord. When I see them hurting or Your world decaying, let me be challenged to reach out—instead of merely exploding.

    I was so blessed to be able to take part in the prayer rally! I’ve been waiting for months and God did not disappoint! It was so wonderful to be there with all my brothers and sisters in Christ and pray for our country! A challenge to all those that were there and those that couldn’t be there, continue to pray for Colorado and their leaders. Also pray for all the next stops to come on Franklin’s tour that there would be people at that rally who’s hearts would turn to service to God to help in their various communities to stand boldly and make God pleasing decisions. To God be the glory!

    May the Holy Spirit have hearts and ears opened today in Phoenix, Arizona as you, Franklin Graham, and your support staff and others who have been vigilantly praying that the Good News will be heard and accepted and the importance will be reinforced of the importance of bringing our country back to God. Respectfully, a servant of God.

    It takes a determined effort not to get too angry as we watch the moral decline of society. Our values have plunged deeply into dire straits . Things that were once considered disgusting and terrible are now a common occurrence. Open persecution of Christians is now commonplace . However Almighty God sits firmly on his throne and remains just and merciful. Thank you for your unmerited Grace dear Lord .

    Heavenly Father help me this day to control my temper…and my tongue and to use them in the service of my savior Jesus Christ.
