Christian Anger Management Book Excerpt
How to Manage Your Anger
Anger management is a very important life skill since anger, like fire, can destroy you if you let it manage you, instead of you managing it.
Learn from Moses when God told him to take his rod and speak to the rock so that it could give the Israelites water for he struck the rock and spoke to the Israelites without glorifying God and subsequently lost his chance of entering the Promised Land. (Numbers 20:7-11)
Therefore follow these Christian anger management tips so that you can control yourself and ensure that anger does not destroy your testimony and life.
Pray for God's Help
When you find yourself getting angry pray and ask God to help you keep your cool.
Bible verse prayers that can help you control anger include:
Heavenly Father I ask You in the name of Jesus to help me keep my cool because man’s anger does not bring about the righteousness that God desires. (James 1:20)
Refuse To Get Angry Quickly
When people issue inflaming statements or do annoying things to you, Be slow to anger (James 1:19) and do not let them provoke you until you loose your temper.
If you feel the fire of ire rising within you, begin counting to forty silently while taking deep breaths between each number so that you can cool the burning embers within you before they burst into uncontrollable flames.
If you can, walk away from the people and situation.
However, if you are physically stuck with them like Moses was stuck with the Israelites in the wilderness for forty years, take slow, deep breaths as you leave them mentally by meditating on anger management Bible verses like the following:
The discretion of a person makes them slow to anger and their glory is to overlook a transgression. (Proverbs 19:11)
Be slow to anger. (James 1:19)
Do your best to control yourself because Whoever does not control his own spirit is like a broken down city without walls. (Proverbs 25:28) This means that a person without self control is like a city which is defenseless before its enemies since the enemies can do things to make him/her angry so that he/she can do what they want him/her to do.
