Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires. (NLT) -James 1:20 What is human anger? It's anger that occurs when someone rubs against our pride or selfishness. God still wants us to get angry, but for the right reasons such as the injustice of orphans or widows. Learn to temper your selfish anger. When you feel yourself getting angry because your feelings are hurt, swallow it and focus your mind on something else. Stewing in your anger only produces more anger. Practice refocusing your mind as many times as needed.
You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people. (NLT) -Genesis 50:20 Joseph's brothers sold him into slavery, but God used this circumstance for good. If you find yourself in a desperate situation, don't be afraid. Do not think for one minute that God doesn't love you because of your circumstances. He loves you. Don't lose yourself in despair, focus on a bigger picture. Looking at your situation, what are some possible ways God could use it for good, just as He did for Joseph?
