"And do not give the devil a foothold." NIV
"Neither give place to the devil." KJV
Anger can be a large opening for the entrance of Satan.
If we do not keep our anger under control, we are carving
a perfect step for the evil one to place his foot and just
take off with his hatred and toxin. We are all in situations
that cause us to become angry, and anger is a normal
human emotion. But when our anger takes over our self
control, we literally hand control over to whatever or
whoever is there to take it over. It is up to us. We have the
choice and the control. Let's keep that in mind each time
our emotions get intense.
Heavenly Father, please forgive us when we have allowed
our anger to be taken over by the evil one because we
didn't keep control. Help us, Lord, to never give the devil
an opportunity to work through our uncontrolled
emotions. We pray in Jesus' name. Amen.
