KEY SCRIPTURE: Eph 4:27 KJV” Neither give place to the devil”.
Our key scripture tells us not to give any place to the devil. A devil may come into your life when conditions are ripe. An evil person can gain assess into your life through anger. When Balak the king of Moab, wanted to defeat the Jews who had just come from Egypt, he hired Balaam a fortune teller to put a curse on them, so he could defeat them. This is what Balaam said, Num 23:21. There was no iniquity in Israel and so He could not curse them. He advised Balak to make the women of Moab to fornicate with the men of Israel. This will break the word of God and then a curse could easily come on them.
Evil people like witches or wizards also use this same strategy against some Christians they may be living together with. They know they cannot easily harm the Christian because of the protection of God. They will normally offend the Christian in such an unreasonable way, to make the Christian lose his temper and become angry. If the anger persists over a period then the scripture has been broken, giving grounds for this evil person to gain assess into the Christian’s life. Many children of God have suffered through this means. Be very careful about those who would offend you without any provocation. Do not fall for unnecessary provocations. When you are angry over such actions, don’t let the sun go down over your anger.
Quickly consider what God’s word says and turn away from the anger. Pro 19:11 KJV” The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression. “In such times consider some of the insight in this study and put off the anger. Note: It is not every offender that is an evil witch or wizard. Don’t go looking for any, just do what the scripture says. Don’t let the sun go down on your anger. I used the example of witches or wizards, just to show how the devil can easily have an advantage over you, and harm you through an uncontrolled anger.
My eyes are opened and do not fall to the devices of the enemy. I have self-control and so no matter how much I am provoked, I control my anger and give no place to the devil.
Gen 4:6 & 7 NET Then the LORD said to Cain, “Why are you angry, and why is your expression downcast?
Is it not true that if you do what is right, you will be fine? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at the door. It desires to dominate you, but you must subdue it.”
Proverbs 15:1 NET “A gentle response turns away anger, but a harsh word stirs up wrath.”
