Proverbs 29:1 The man that with a
stiff neck despises him that reproves him, shall suddenly be destroyed: and
health shall not follow him.
It was a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon, and as a child of
10 years old, I wanted to be playing outside, but for some reason, I was told
to stay in the house and to sit on the couch.
I can’t remember ever being that angry before, but I was violently
Reaching over to the Sunday funny papers that lay along side
of me, I hastily grabbed them, and viciously and quickly, tore them into small
My dad was in his chair, reading the sports section and he
jumped up with a hop, into the kitchen, grabbed “the belt,” and with a skip he
jerked me up and submitted a sound whipping to the back of my legs and back
When he had fulfilled his own anger, he explained to me that
I did not get the thrashing because he had not read the funnies, but it was
because I had destroyed something in a fit of anger.
The lesson here of course was not to break,
hit, tear or destroy something while angry.I learned a personal lesson, and that was not to display anger, but to
hold it in.
When my children were growing up, I took out my anger on
them.To hear them tell it, they
received a beating every day of their early lives.Later as they grew older, the punishment
turned to a short “time out,” giving them time to ponder what they had done.
Usually apologies were quick, and that would settle it, and
it was considered closure.
My anger continued, turning into resentment and depression,
with no outlet in sight.Repentance did
not solve it, and I was at a loss for a cure!
One eventful day, I read a pamphlet written by Derek
Prince.He spoke of all the emotions
inside of us that could, and would destroy our peace.His solution was a Spiritual plan that
involved, “Binding and Loosening.”The
steps were simple enough.
I must honestly tell you these steps brought me complete victory and set me free !!
Step 1.Find a quiet place where you can be alone and
when time is not pressing!
Step 2. Desire to be set free from
the disturbing emotion, or habit that is troubling you.
Step 3. Ask the Lord to show you
the name of the problem you seek freedom from.
Step 4. Pause and wait. – There is
Step 5. As you begin to realize an
unwanted emotion, confess to God that you do NOT want to keep it, and release
it to Him.Name it.
Step 6. Ask the Lord to show you a
replacement attitude and trade the bad with an opposite and good emotion to
take its place.Name it.
Step 7. Tell God that you receive
the new, and then thank Him for his peace.
Step 8. There may be more emotions that you are not aware
of, so begin again until all that might be troubling you has been released, and
replaced with the new and better.
It is extremely important to replace the old attitudes and
emotions with the new, because you cannot afford to have a clean but empty
Matthew 12:43 - 45 When the unwanted spirit is gone out of
a man, he walks through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none.Then he says, I will return into my house
from whence I came out; and when he is come, he finds it empty, swept, and clean.Then goes he, and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than
himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the
Now fill your spirit with praise and worship to God and fill
your mind with his Word.
