24 “Make no friendship with an angry man, and with a furious man do not go,
25 Lest you learn his ways and set a snare for your soul.”
Today’s Inspiration: Do not associate with a man given to anger or go with a hot-tempered man lest you learn his ways and find a snare for yourself. Proverbs 22:24-25. If you are provoked to anger, ignore them and commit them to the Lord and bless them as Jesus has taught us to bless those who persecute us. Matthew 5:10. Vindication belongs to Him. Isaiah 54:17.
Let all bitterness, wrath and anger and clamor and slander be out away. Be kind to one another and tender-hearted forgiving each other just as God in Christ also had forgiven us. Ephesians 4:31-32.
There is power in forgiveness. The enemy flee from you when the spirit of grace for forgiveness arises in and out of you. Forgiveness brings forth a healing process beyond your imagination. It heals not only your soul but it heals your sickness. Your heart lit up at your forgiveness.
Now that you are children of the light, walk as children of the light. There is fruit in the light. Light produces fruit of goodness, righteousness and truth that is pleasing to the Lord. The devil is always prowling waiting for an opportunity to devour you so we need to be alert and not be ignorant of his wicked schemes. Be careful how you walk making the most of your time because the days are evil. Understand what the will of God is. Ephesians 4:15-17. God be praised.
Prayer: Lord grant me the grace to stay calm even when provoked that I might not give the devil an opportunity. In Jesus’ name, amen.
