Last week, I had an opportunity to really go off the rails after hearing a conversation. I mean, I was ready to go from 0 to 60 mph in 2.3 seconds! I was on fire! But....I didn't. It was hard, though. The Lord was gracious to give me strength to hold my peace. The way I felt really bummed me out until I happened to read a devotional that I received through email. It referenced Proverbs 16:32 - "He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city."
There it is. The residue of my anger dissipated immediately. The Lord delivered. My thought process was transformed. He will take care of it.
What about you? Are you ruling your spirit or are you lacking restraint?
