A stone is heavy, and the sand weighty; but a fool’s wrath is heavier than them both. (Proverbs 27:3 KJV)
Anger and bitterness are dangerous to the one who carries it. They have the capacity of burying one alive and can destroy the body, soul and spirit. Many will say that I am angry because I was wronged but the moment you carry that wrath overnight, you are putting yourself in a worse problem. Despite being born again, anger can affect your salvation.
As you walk here on earth, there are challenges that are likely to bring you into a state of anger and bitterness. This can even be as worse as anger and bitterness towards ones parents. Forgiveness is an important key no matter how hard the situation you have been made to pass through is! Imagine God the Father giving His only begotten son to redeem man who had wronged him and continued living in sin and rebellion.
Solomon, a man of wisdom pens these words, “A stone is heavy, and the sand is weighty; but a fool’s wrath is heavier than them both.” These are serious words which require deeper analysis. Imagine trying to lift a boulder, it is heavy for the body so is a sack full of sand now imagine both combined? This is in the natural but he says all these are nothing compared to the burden of wrath or anger! It is heavy for the one who carries it. It will torment your being until you can’t carry on. In your right senses when you realize a stone is too heavy, you put it down otherwise you break your back. Put the same application towards that anger. Put it down before it breaks your spirit man.
Don’t carry anger towards your parents, your brothers and sisters and even strangers that wronged you. Be quick to forgive and leave all vengeance to the Lord. The word even urges us to feed our enemies. Why is that, to relieve you of the danger of anger and bitterness! When one is angry, they are bound to make wrong decisions without reason, that only translates to foolishness.
I pray for you today that you find it in your heart to forgive those who have wronged you. May the grace of God encompass you and help you in this area. Search your soul, who am I angry with? This one thing can block the blessing of the Lord flowing in your life and give the devil room to operate. It will block your prayers and they will not reach the Lord.
Thank you Lord for the light of the Word. I remove the burden of anger from myself knowing that my spirit can not continue carrying this burden. Thank you for teaching me to forgive those who trespass against me as you have done the same for me over and over again in Jesus’ name.
