Read verse 12 twice
Title: Unresolved Anger
Has anybody been mad, upset, over the last 60 days? Have you allow someone to get you to the point where you wanted to say something to someone, and the something you wanted to say, and it wasn’t God Bless either. Something you wanted to say was not “have a nice day”.
You wanted to say something that would propelled you back to the street days…we know we are saved, but we remember some of the stuff we have said, before we got saved. Amen
When we got saved, it didn’t wipe out memory…we still know how to handle some stuff, we still know how to say some words…and some people where so good, that they made up on their on words…. we still know how to prepare for battle. We know how to take them earring offs, roll up our sleeves…we still know how to move that head…we have not forgot how to snap them fingers.
Has anybody have taken you back to that point, where we used be, to circumstances, where in our minds, we can visibly see ourselves getting to a point of doing some stuff that you know God is not going to be please with.
And sometimes to the point where you say, I know love the lord, and I know I am saved in Christ Jesus I know I am save with the holy ghost, But sometime folks get on our nervous, and upset us so bad, that you can visibly some stuff that what to do, that you your hands going around somebody neck.
And sometimes we can get so angry, that all you could do is grit your teeth. In addition, tears came down. And you had to go somewhere to calm you’re nervous…or may be the next day; you couldn’t even go to work.
TITLE: UNRESOLVED ANGER
Now anger in itself is not wrong. In Ephesians, it tells us to be anger, but sin not.
Now the sin part…it says we should not let the sun go down on our wrath. In other words we must do something with our own self. We must deal with this energy, because that’s want anger is. .energy. And lot of time when we get anger with someone else we cannot right away resolve the situation between the other person and ourselves.
However if we got some anger, or energy in our system, the bible tells us that we have to deal with it.
but first we need to resolve our wrath, and we need to channel this energy/anger to do some good for God.
Now here we see Moses. We all know about Moses. Moses the Deliver. Moses is the one who met God on Mt Sinai. Moses is the one who brought the word down to the people. Moses who had the burn bush experience.
But something devastating happen to Moses in this Chapter, we read about it in verse 12.
Its says that Moses and Aaron was not able to enter into the promise land that God has provided for them. Simply because Moses, had some Unresolved Anger.
You know unresolved anger is a silent killer. When we are angry about certain things in our life. And we don’t bring it to some kind of resolve in our self. What we tend to do, is we tend to harbor up this energy with in us.
Many times, we walk around as if nothing is bothering us.
However, if you got some anger that you have to deal with. The first that we have to do, is let the Lord know that we got some anger.
To many times we try to hide the fact that we are angry about something. This anger can become madness. This is a reason why there is so many killings among other things that relate to anger…that anger has turned into a madness…it is a “Silent Killer”.
Sometimes we get anger about something, and we kept holding back, hoping it will take care of itself…then one day, we explode with that anger that we have been harboring, that never was resolved.
And in addition, sometimes that Anger explodes at home. . On our spouse, or our children, or our friends. That unresolved anger that’s maybe on our jobs, we bring it home…and it explodes. This Anger comes out on someone that we are not even anger with.
And if it is not resolves…someone’s always get hurt. And when this anger blows up, we are going to miss our blessings…we are going to be just like Moses.
God Took Moses on the mountain and show him the promise land…But He said Moses you cannot go. And the reason is because Moses allowed His anger to get the best of Him.
