The Trigger Of Anger
"For the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God."—James 1:20
We all have those moments. Moments of anger, outbursts, explosion, and implosion. As much as these moments seems to catch us by surprise, signs lead up to them that we ignore. Some triggers elicit these responses. Triggers which we can direct. While we may feel a victim, we are not, and we are entirely liable. For lack of awareness, we fall for the enemy's plan. He lurks in waiting for moments we lack two things—first awareness of the triggering issue and second thoughtful responses that "produce the righteousness of God." So today, when anger lurks, note the trigger and take a moment to respond in a way that producing something better—righteousness.
DO THIS: Stop. Note the trigger. Respond. Act in righteousness.
PRAYER: God, help me stop the advancement of my anger and increase the flow of righteousness.
