Like a city that is broken down and without walls [leaving it unprotected]
Is a man who has no self-control over his spirit [and sets himself up for trouble]. Proverbs 25:28 Holy Bible Amplified Version
Once a long time ago I played a chess game while stoned on marijuana and it was the quickest game my opponent ever played and the easiest win as well.
Many decades later (and no longer a pot head) the Holy Spirit brought back that memory to teach me a valuable lesson. The reason the opponent won so easily was because the pot diminished my ability to use reason and logic.
So too it is with our temper.
When we begin to lose our temper we begin to be easy pickings for our opponent and the devil will use this to our advantage.
To lose your temper is to lose the battle. To depend upon the Holy Spirit to control our temper and bless us with wisdom, grace and strength is to gain victory. Joseph a son of Jehovah
If instead we are wise and depend upon the Holy Spirit for guidance, He will bless us with Supreme Divine logic and reasoning, including when to get out of there and calm down. Indeed, He will guide us to avoid those who love to instigate fights for no other reason than to watch folks blow up and make fools of themselves.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) bless me with the strength to shut my mouth and remove myself from situations that agitate my patience and with the wisdom, gracefulness, meekness and strength to deal with agitators who perversely enjoy stirring up the pot. I ask this in the name of my humble (humbleness mean to keep your temper under control) King Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
