Introduction and Summary
In John 16:33 Jesus said, “I have told you these things, so that in Me you
may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have
tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good
cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I
have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have
conquered it for you.]” (AMP)
There’s absolutely nothing that can overtake us if we put our TOTAL trust and
confidence in Him and obey the Word.
Consequently, these lessons are designed to teach you how to embrace the
power of God that’s available in the Person of the Holy Spirit. He will empower
you to handle and overcome anxiety, anger, depression, frustration, and feeling
powerless during this economic downturn.
The truth is what Jesus told His disciples over 2000 years ago are applicable
today. Do you believe it? Do you want help? Would like to experience the
compassion of the One who created you in His image and likeness?
If so, you’re at a good place to begin the healing process. We’ll focus on six (6)
emotions that are most common during stressful and challenging times. It is my
prayer that you receive the encouragement for which this series is purposed.
God’s Power over Anger
James 1:19-20; Ephesians 4:26-27; Proverbs 14:29
Anger is a strong feeling of displeasure. It is an advanced
stage of frustration. It is a deep-seated feeling of being out
of control and unable to cope. Anger is the emotion that
can result from feeling powerless, and being frustrated. If
not dealt with properly, or controlled by the power of Good,
anger results in outbursts and is acted out in violent
behavior and even criminal and destructive conduct.

TWO TYPES OF ANGER

There are various reasons this emotion can surface, i.e.,
life’s circumstances, unpleasant situations and
conditions, relationships issues, financial matters,
Anger is a God-given emotion that can motivate us to
reflect the “heart” of God and take a stand against
opposition and carry out Kingdom assignments as His
representatives in the Earth.
Example of righteous anger: Jesus in Mark 11:15-17,
John 2:13-16. This was a demonstration of righteous
anger because “money changers” actions and conduct
were contrary to God’s plan and purpose for the Temple.
Therefore, it made Jesus angry to see this inappropriate
behavior in God’s designated place of reverence that
represented His presence and holiness.

Distinguishing the difference…
For “faith talking” believing and practicing Christians
,ask yourself the following questions:
1. Am I a person with understanding or am I a foolish
person? I choose to determine the kind of person I
am by my actions. (Ref. Proverbs 14:29)
2. Am I a “doer” of the Word, or a hearer only?
3. Do I want to give the devil a foothold, and allow my
emotions to control? (Ref. Eph. 4:26-27).

Practical tips for controlling anger
1. Practice and develop good listening skills
2. Learn to be quiet (be slow to speak; take
3. STOP! Think! Try to understand the other
4. STOP! Think! Consider the consequences
if you react or respond in anger.
REVIEW AND DISCUSSION
1. Meditate on Proverbs 14:29, Proverbs 15:1,
and James 1:19-20.
2. Do you get angry easily? Is it righteous or
unrighteous anger? Be honest with yourself.
Ask God to reveal the truth to you about
3. People often justify their anger by quoting
Ephesians 4:26-27, “Be angry, but do not sin.”
However, they often let the sun go down while
they’re still angry. Give this verse some thought.
Let the power of the Holy Spirit give you insight.
Read 2 Samuel 13 (the story of Absalom’s anger toward his
brother Amnon for raping their sister, Tamar). Was Absalom’s
anger justified to point of murder ?
Father, thank you for being concerned about every area of
my life because it’s your desire for me to represent you well
in the earth. I confess that sometimes I don’t because of
my unrighteous anger to control my thoughts and actions. I
want to change. Forgive me. Help me to allow your Holy
Spirit to empower me so that I can experience your power
over anger. In Jesus’ name I pray. I believe; I receive.
