Breaking Bread For 5.19.21

Scripture

My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.

James 1:19-20

Reflection

A child of God should be strengthened in His Word, and by the example of His son Jesus Christ. We should have discernment to see, hear, feel, and know when things are wrong and not of God. We should have discernment to see, hear, feel, and know when we are being moved towards darkness.

We should be disciplined enough to turn away from darkness and not give in to anger and rage. Pray for the strength to be more loving even when others aren’t being loving to you. As the old adage goes, “If you have nothing good to say then say nothing at all”. We should practice this daily so as not to fall into the enemy’s trap. The enemy wants you caught up in chaos and confusion. Don’t give in to the foolishness. Turn the mess over to God.

Prayer

Father, help me to listen more intently and purposely. Open my eyes to see the things I overlook, and help me to clearly discern what’s before me. I pray that I stop to think before I speak so that only loving words come from my mouth. I hope that I turn to You so that my emotions do not bubble out of control, and grow to anger and rage.

Father, I know that anger is not a by-product of Your love and Light. It is in weakness that a person turns to anger and violence to address their concerns and issues. It is a weak person that lashes out verbally or physically. I want to be strong in You. Touch my heart so that I can align in all ways to You. In Your Name I praise and pray. Amen.

Love always,

Natasha
