{Mad Mom Makeover} Quick to Anger? Trust God More

Quick to Anger?  Trust God More

Are your passions at war within you?  Do those passions sometimes lead to outbursts of anger that you wish you could take back?  In the Bible, James writes about this problem…

 

“What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you? You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have, because you do not ask. “ -James 4:1-2 (ESV)

 

James uses the terminology of your passions being at war.  Those of us who’ve experienced the grace of forgiveness and salvation through Christ still face a battle between our spirit (with it’s Godly desires) and our flesh (our worldly desires)- and we will continue to throughout this life. 

 

We are not left on our own to fight this battle.  @@We can trust God to continue the good work that he started in us@@ when we accepted Christ as our Lord and Savior.
