  1. I have a hidden berserker in me. Sure, I have righteous anger sometimes. But the way I react and express my feelings comes out scary, mean and can cause a scene. Lately I have prayed on the spot about it. This calms and grounds me effectively. The prayer starts off in an angry tone then improves, having and humbling and disciplining effect. Talking things out with trusted people helps too. I cannot always employ these strategies and could use more suggestions. Then again, I get angry at things I should not. I am in the wrong. It does not even occur to me to use the above strategies then. I am too caught up in my own selfish moment. I pray after the fact. I try to apologize to the people involved afterwards. I only do it again eventually. I seem to have a long fuse but an overblown powder keg. I even get mad at myself. I beat myself up over all sorts of things. I believe it to be a form of self abuse. My theory is I would rather take things out on myself than others. I might become indignant rather than address whatever the issue is. My anger symptoms must have a rooted cause that I am avoiding or not even aware of. All of the above is frustrating, annoying and troublesome. I will start to pray about this. One specific request I have been making of God recently is for Him to take control of my emotions. Identifying this problem and wanting to change is a good sign and start, I figure. Any and all advice, scripture, prayers, comments or constructive criticism is appreciated. God bless you, GregoryB 8 Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret—it leads only to evil. - Psalm 37:8 New International Version (NIV)
  2. Isaiah 54:3-5: "Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; Do not spare; lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes. For you shall expand to the right and to the left, and your descendants will inherit the nations, and make the desolate cities inhabited. Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed; neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame; for you will forget the shame of your youth.....for your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is His name; and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel; He is called the God of the whole earth." We are about to expand beyond our imagination. We need to prepare for the feast that is being prepared for us. Psalm 23:5 says, "God will prepare a table of feasting for us in the very presence of our enemies." God is preparing a table for us, a table of feasting. We have to make room for what He was about to bring into our life. "Strengthen your stakes." means the walls, or stakes (your faith and expectation) must be able to support what God is bringing into your life. It is time to expand our cords - make large the place - and prepare our hearts. It is time to expand our capacity to receive. It's feasting time in the presence of the Lord! It's time to break out! 1 Timothy 4:7,8 - "Discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness; for bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come." You are divinely prepared to accomplish the task God has assigned you. You can do something no other human being can do. You have been chosen by Christ, for Christ; the choice was made before the foundation of the world (see Ephesians 1:4). Knowing this promise will release you from rejection and depression. Power is released through discipline. The goal is to finish the course and to be able to say with all confidence, "I've kept the faith and stayed on course, accomplishing the task set before me." It is to that individual Christ will say, "Well done, good and faithful servant" (Matthew 25:21). Affirmation: I DISCIPLINE MYSELF IN CHRIST SO THAT I WILL ACCOMPLISH GOD'S CALLING ON MY LIFE. He is perpetually with you, taking care of you. That is the most important fact of your existence. He is not limited by time or space; you need not fear the future, for He is already there. When you make that quantum leap into eternity, you will find Him awaiting you in heaven. Your future is in His hands; He releases it to you day by day, moment by moment. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow. Don’t be distracted by future concerns. Leave them to Him! Each day of life is a glorious gift, but so few people know how to live within the confines of today. Much of their energy for abundant living spills over the timeline into tomorrow’s worries or past regrets. Their remaining energy is sufficient only for limping through the day, not for living it to the full. I am training you to keep your focus on My Presence in the present. This is how to receive abundant Life, which flows freely from His throne of grace.“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” - Matthew 6:34 “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” - John 10:10 ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY
  3. “Forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:13-14) The enemy will do anything he can to keep us dwelling on the past — but Jesus is calling us FORWARD and UPWARD to our true destiny! And this destiny is often something we must fight for (in our thoughts and emotions) and choose daily. BUT IT IS SO WORTH IT!!!
  4. John 3:21 - "He that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God." Affirmation: I stay alive to His Word and keep His Word bright by keeping it first in my life, regardless of what happens. When people fail, it doesn't mean the word failed, it means someone failed the Word. John 17:17 - "Sanctify them through thy truth; thy Word is truth." 1 Timothy 4:7,8 - "Discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness; for bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come." You are divinely prepared to accomplish the task God has assigned you. You can do something no other human being can do. You have been chosen by Christ, for Christ; the choice was made before the foundation of the world (see Ephesians 1:4). Knowing this promise will release you from rejection and depression. Power is released through discipline. The goal is to finish the course and to be able to say with all confidence, "I've kept the faith and stayed on course, accomplishing the task set before me." It is to that individual Christ will say, "Well done, good and faithful servant" (Matthew 25:21). Affirmation: I DISCIPLINE MYSELF IN CHRIST SO THAT I WILL ACCOMPLISH THINGS THAT WILL BEAR ETERNAL FRUIT. Romans 4:17 - "Even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were." Affirmation: I CANNOT BE WHAT I AM NOT BUT I CAN BECOME WHAT I AM NOT. ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY
