Apostle Grace Lubega
Numbers 20:10-12(KJV); And Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation together before the rock, and he said unto them, Hear now, ye rebels; must we fetch you water out of this rock? And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their beasts also. And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed me not, to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them.
The distance between some people and their success is anger.
Some cling to their temper like it is some sort of virtue.
I have heard Christians boast about what a great temper they have. No one should dare to cross them because they will “change colour.”
Beloved saint, what other colour do you have that is not the colour of love?
It was out of anger that Moses killed an Egyptian man and buried him in the sand (Exodus 2:11).
For forty years, he never heard the voice of God again. Forty years!
It was out of anger that Moses broke the stone tablets(Exodus 32:19).
He had to rewrite them yet what was done before had been written by the very finger of God.
In our theme scripture, it is out of anger that Moses struck the rock twice.
God refused him to enter the Promised Land.
What a sad thing!
The Bible says, never let the sun go down on your anger (Ephesians 4:26).
This means you should never allow it to eat up your spirit.
It is ungodly to keep anger.
Let go. Allow God through His grace to heal your heart. He is our balm; there is no hurt He cannot soothe.
His name be praised.

The distance between some people and their success is anger. It is ungodly to keep anger. Let go. Allow God through His grace to heal your heart.
PRAYER: My God, I am grateful for Your Word. I refuse to keep anger in my spirit because it is not Your nature and neither is it mine. You are not a God of wrath but of mercy. I know the colour of love and it lives inside of me. Your love has been shed abroad in my heart and it is by this love that I function every day: to forgive, let go and to turn the other cheek. To the glory of Your name. Amen.
