My oldest daughter and I are a lot alike. Unfortunately even when it comes to our quick temper.

So a few evenings ago we sat down and asked the Lord what we could do about it. First we prayed. Then we got into the Word.

He showed us that:

  • “fly off the handle anger” isn’t a fruit of the Spirit *self-control is* (Galatians 5:22)
  • Mightiness/rule over your Spirit is a good thing (Proverbs 16:32)
  • We can find that strength when we wait on Him (Isaiah 40:31)

Isn’t that amazing? Through the Word and guidance of the Holy Spirit we were:

  • Showed an area where we needed to mature
  • Told why maturity in this area would be a blessing to us
  • Taught how to mature in Him

Jesus left nothing out.

He never does. 🙂
