Humans not that blessed of having a

Humans believe that
there is God, their Creator in whom gives grace to His people and make their
lives as easy as possible. Likewise, on the case of people who are not that
blessed of having a lot of wealth, they considered themselves as unloved or
neglected by God. Also, if there are some people who are facing a lot of problems
in their lives and cannot solve or take it anymore, they  tend to blame God for all of it and most
likely eliminates their faith in God. Another, there are also people who cannot
wait of the perfect time that God had allotted for them for the flow of His grace
in man; the outcome is they are not able to receive the great blessing of God.
Truly, the emotions and works of man really affect the grace that would be
giving by God in them.


Often, man considers
himself as a very intelligent person, in which he already forgets of having
faith in God because of his rationality. Likewise, he makes his own decision
for his own life. It is true that man has their own freewill of making decisions
and things in their lives likewise, they must also know of the work of God in
their lives wherein it would imparting a great event or change in their lives.
To have faith in Him and patience on everything that He plans to do will lead
man to its success in living here in earth and his Spirit that would be guided
accordingly by the Holy Spirit through God. Man must not only consider of what
they see, hear, sense, taste, and touch, sometimes what the senses feels most
likely is not real but what the senses does not feel most likely of being real.

Since almost humans
depend on their rationalities, what they do not really feel through their
senses is assured as not existing or imaginary. Their actions or feelings are
also dependent in the knowledge that they acquire or something that really
exists, thus, emotions of man are very dependent. In general, one can be happy
and fulfilled when they are grateful of something that they acquire or get
through hardships, one can feel they are valuable if the people that are
surrounding them make him or her feel so loved, and one can also be thankful if
everything that they had wished for were granted. But, one can get disappointed
if any single or simple thing weren’t met, one can get sad if something
valuable lost to them, and also one can get mad or angry when they feel
irritated or were blocked from achieving their goals. Every man’s emotions has
its reason for existence, which is why, there are no reason for a man to react
not accordingly to the existence of some events in their lives.

Every time people are
praying to God, they always ask for something that they cannot work on and the
only way to get it is to pray and ask some help from God but the thing is,
people would not really do some actions, they would entrust everything to God.
Also, when people pray to God, they always wish for many things, requesting for
a lot of things that they want to receive or have and every time they wish for
it, they want it now, the result is, they would be impatient of waiting for the
right time to receive that blessing. The conflict is when people wish from Him,
they expect that He would already grant it and if not, we would be disappointed
or upset and may also cause for people to eliminate their faith and may cause
them to be lost on what path they will be going to take in their lives. People
are so dependent of what they are wishing and when the time comes that they are
already in need of what they had asked they would be too impatient and if that
prayer was not able to occur or to be answered, people would blame all things
from Him, like God is the reason for everything that they experience. There are
also some instances that people who always do good things towards other people
came to experience a bunch of circumstances in their life in which they tend to
ask God for what wrong thing they had done in their life, and when they cannot
really endure it, they would blame God and can be a cause to turn back from
their faith.


According to
(Shahsavarani, Noohi, et. al., 2016), “Anger is a complex human emotion and a
frequent reaction to frustration and maltreatment.” It is considered as one of
the principal emotions of humankind and is considered natural just like the
other emotions that a man expresses (i.e., joy, sadness, happiness, fear, and
disgust). Likewise, it is not good as it may result to destruction of
relationships and create enemies. According to (sofia.edu, 2018), “Anger is one
of the most difficult emotions experienced by humans, both personally and
relationally.” It is because of the difficulty to handle or deal with it. In
order for some people to control this kind of emotions, they try to repress it,
as they believe that this will be the way to make a peaceful environment, some
also may ventilate or expound this kind of emotions not considering of the
outcomes and consequences that may get in. Anger possesses an outward energy
and is usually accompanied by accusations, this tends to accuse, criticize,
punish, and avenge. This outward energy does not only affect the other person
whom the person is angry with, likewise, it is also the person who becomes
angry as the negative energy of anger flows in his or her body and mind making
his or her way of life become negative.


In relation to the
flow of grace that is given by God in His people, anger may also affect their
belief in God. In example, people are praying for something that they really
want to get and they want to receive it now, but people are too impatient to
wait for the blessing, anger arises and may cause them to become rebellious in
the faith. Anger is a negative emotion that can drive people to a more negative
way of life. The flow of grace of God in His people does not really fails, what
fails is the attitude of the people towards the blessings that God is giving to
them. Everyday that we spent here in earth is already a big blessing from Him,
as He still allows us to live here in earth together with the people we love,
but almost all of the people tend to forget about it. It is such an immoral
action to revenge against the faith that a man has, only because of the reason
that circumstances that appears in his life really gives him a miserable
situation to cope up in his life. Man forgets that God would not allow His
people to suffer from circumstances that they can’t surmount. It is just that
people are too impatient to end their suffering, the circumstances they are
facing, the negativities in their lives that they want to eliminate. Man always
forgets that without these circumstances, one could not enjoy fully the
happiness that he or she will experience after those circumstances. They also tend
to forget that God is always by their side even though they only tend to
remember Him in times of trouble and in times of need. This may not apply to
all humanities that exist here in earth but almost all of the human being that
exist here in earth are being poisoned by the modernity and the worldly things
in this place. To avenge towards God would not only be a foul play but is also
senseless. It would be senseless as man could not survive without having a God.
Man could not see, hear, touch, and feel anything that exists here in earth
without God. Man is imperfect, but this imperfection does not mean that man
must already repeat the same mistakes that he had. Also, it is the choice of
man what life he takes so; to blame things to God is unreasonable. Man could
not exist without God. Thus, to go defiant against the faith is such an
indecent thing to do because man was only created by God. Thus, to rebel on Him
would not help to live a good life and to make it to go to Heaven after life
here in earth.


Anger is really a
powerful emotion that can strike suddenly taking over the thoughts of a person
with violent force. It seems uncontrollable and its devastating effects may result
for a man to leave his faith, family, and career in ruins. But, there is always
a way to break free from anger’s grasp, it is through by patience. First,
people must get to the source of their anger. There are a lot of causes and
expressions of anger of a person; it is because of people, the people who keep
them overwhelming of anger. But the most things that keeps them of being
overwhelmed of anger is things does not turn out the way they wanted, the
result is they become more angry. Unfortunately, all of the energy that a man
invest with anger are all of waste, it cannot let them get the situation better
nor it would only breed more anger and creating a destructive cycle of their
lives. “The anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God” (James
1:20). Second is finding freedom. If anger really gives a man a hard time to
control it, let it be to God. Let God yield and control all things that are
going in one’s life. Anger is all about control, if one does not have the
control; it could create a gap between him and God as this emotion possesses a
wedge taking away humanities from God. With this emotion, people reject God’s
love in His people; accusing God of not taking care of what happens to His
people. Third is overcoming anger day every day. The new life together with
Christ does not immediately answer a man to be out of anger but he must learn
how to conquer anger because every day will might give him different
circumstances triggering him from getting angry. Fourth is to pray to God, hand
over the reins in one’s heart to God and let Him work over and walk with Him
together with His love and forgiveness. Last is to remember God’s word “Be
angry, and yet do not sin; do not let the sun to down on your anger, and do not
give the devil an opportunity….. and do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by
whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath
and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.
And be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God
in Christ also has forgiven you.” (Ephesians 4:26-27, 30-32).


Jesus Christ had
suffered from the cross when He had redeemed the humanities from their sins. He
was cruelly and unusually punished, tortured, and severely harrowed by people.
Jesus let that happen because of His love in His people. He suffered greatly
yet He had waited patiently of what God will do unto Him. Because His trust in
His Father, all good things happened in His life, He resurrected from death and
ascended to Heaven. Jesus had waited patiently of what His Father will do unto
Him, He trust His Father no matter torment He had gone. If Jesus let Himself be
patient, thus man as well. Patience is letting oneself suffer, endure, and wait
uncomplainingly by the determination of one’s will and as not by necessity.
Patience is an essential Christian virtue that a man must exercise. People must
be patient waiting for God, that he would endure without complain the various
forms of sufferings, evil works that he meet, and bear patiently the inequities
and provocations that he cannot eliminate. Patience is not an easy virtue as
one cannot endure without complaint the sufferings that he will be going to. In
today’s modernity, it would be much harder for a man to patiently wait for
things, thus, what more for God. That is why people today tend to neglect God
as they might waste time that is going really fast. But, man must still
willingly wait for God and His grace.


God is very patient in
His people, thus, people as well towards other people. God’s love and patience
towards His people abounds despite of the sins that man has towards Him. From
this, man must have the reason to restraint from their harshness and constraint
from love and patience towards others that sin to them. According to (Orr),
“Patience is a virtue intimately connected to God’s dealings with man by
covenant.” God had His covenant towards humanities and he fulfils it over time
without fail. With this, it must mean for people to wait for God to keep His
promises in His own way, time, and place. God knows what’s fit and best for His
people, thus, man has a lot of reason to obediently and calmly be patient
towards God. Patience is the duty of man towards God and for himself. Through
this virtue, man can ponder and establish a road which will lead to the right
direction in his life. Patience is rooted in Christ, he cultivates patience.
People must be like Abraham towards God; Abraham gazed at God towards His
covenant, he waited patiently for the promised covenant on him by God. People
must not look on how negative life is because of what he suffers but it must be
on the promise of God in every each of them. Patience focuses on the
covenant-keeping God. If people would be focus on God’s righteousness, promise,
and ability as the Sovereign Judge in the earth, people could wait for God’s
time, place, and way of fulfilment without complaining and with a calm spirit
within. Patience is a matter of love, love means that people would look to God
as a covenant-keeping God, so man needs to wait patiently. The keys for a man
to wait successfully are to wait for Jesus to act and look for Jesus to act.


Patience is a lot
better than getting angry; it can help a person in a lot ways than letting the
circumstance to eat him. Patience can give a person a time to think rationally
about the problem. One must stop when he is angry, then breathe and ask God’s
help. This will give way for the person to think more about the situation.
Remember what God said, “You have heard the law that says the punishment must
match the injury: ‘an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth. But I say, do
not resist an evil person! If someone slaps you on the right cheek, offer the
other cheek also.” (Matthew 5: 38-39). The patient love and forgiveness that
one offer to someone else will let him to show to other people God’s patient
love and forgiveness. Patience will help man learn from his experience. In
everything that a person experiences, there is always a lesson to learn.
Knowing how to deal with difficult people is essential. It will enhance his
patience more. Bursting out on anger cannot give one a good end; likewise, it
could just ruin a relationship and may miss out on something that must learn by
oneself. (Romans 5:4-5), “and patience produces character, and character
produces hope. And this hope will never disappoint us, because God has poured
out his love to fill our hearts.” Patience makes it possible for a man to move
forward positively. If one do not let go of what happened, the situation would
not let go as well. Letting oneself angry would just prolong the problem and
make it harder for a person to move on through forgiveness. According to Isaac
Barrow, “it is commonly said that revenge is sweet, but to a calm and
considerate mind, patience and forgiveness are sweeter.” Patience with
understanding may help one realize that this isn’t about him. “The best revenge
is to be unlike him who performed the injury” (Marcus Aurelius). Stopping to
take a breath and pray will let one understand the problem and make him solve
it for the better. Patience gives the wound time to heal. Every wound requires
time to heal it. Thus, give patience to self and to others, spend time to God’s
presence to let Him heal your spirit and calm your heart. “Comfort experiences
the presence of God in the presence of suffering – a presence that empowers me
to survive scars and plants the seed of hope that I will yet thrive.” (Dr.
Robert Kelleman). Patience is obedience. Being patient all the time makes one
to be obedient as a child of God. It may be reasonable enough for one to take
revenge but remain humble and patient, as revenge would not keep one from being
obedient to God. “Never pay back evil with more evil. Do things in such a way
that everyone can see you are honorable. Do all that you can to live in peace
with everyone. Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous
anger of God.” (Romans 12:17-19). Patience trusts God to take care of it. Being
obedient to God would make a person ahead of others who become angry. A person
can tell the person who makes them angry that their words are already hurtful
but let the other actions to God. “Don’t say, ‘I’ll pay you back for the wrong
you did’, wait for the Lord and He will make things right.” (Proverbs 20:22).
The patient love of God really works. Thus, patience really works better than
being angry that would only result to a lot negative situations. “Forgive and
give as if it were your last opportunity. Love like there’s no tomorrow, and if
tomorrow comes, love again.” (Max Lucado).


People must be patient
when they are angry. Getting ventilated of their anger can only let their
emotions to be expressed but it can cause a lot of consequences resulting for
the matter to get worse. According to Ephesians 4:26, “if you’re angry, do not
let it become sin. Get over your anger before the day is finished.” To not let
anger become a sin, one must practice of praying and having patience. God said
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbour and hate your enemies. But
I say to you, love your enemies. Pray for those who hurt you.'” When it says
patience with God, it is not connected with the patience that endures the hard
times; likewise, this is about the long suffering toward people. God with His
patience controls His Sovereign plan and perfect timing to come. Thus, man must
not conclude that he would be making his own life; yet, it is quite true as man
has their freedom, but God is always there to guide man when he commits
mistakes because of being bull-headed. Everything happens to man has its reason
and God knows all about it. Before a person was being born, every mistake that
he will commit, every decision he will be making, and even the time that he
will die, God all knows it. Without God’s patience and perfect timing, maybe
the whole humanities do not exist anymore. From history, men are already
sinful, so if God is impatient, He had might strike the earth and live no one.
But God is patient loving; He let the people to live comfortably and freely.
Thus, man must also be like Him. To overcome anger and patiently love would be
the best thing that man can give to God and to his fellowmen. It is indeed hard
but it is not impossible. Every hard thing requires God, perseverance, and
enjoyment to make it in success.


To overcome anger will
let a person to see everything that is more important in his life than being
angry. He could seen opportunities approaching, loving people who are always at
his back, fruitful living in earth together with his love ones, and good relationship
with God as man and God and as a child and Father. To pursue someone to prevent
from being angry, the result of not being angry would not be enough, but the
result of being angry would be. Anger has three faces: explosive and blowing
up; stewing, brewing, or silent indignation; and irritability. Anger hurts
relationships. Sometimes, people cannot burst out their anger to the real
people who they become angry with, so they tend to burst it out to their loved
ones, which could really destroy relationships. Anger is in the Bible. Man’s
anger is expressed by rejecting God and pursuing his own way yet man could not
accomplish what God’s righteous purposes. Anger put Jesus on the Cross. The
anger of man and God’s wrath for the sins of humanities culminated onto Jesus
when he went to the Cross to pay the penalty for sin. Jesus had satisfied the
God’s wrath and allowed man to express their anger towards Him at the same
time. Anger is covered by Christ’s blood. The blood of Christ had been enough
to cover the sins of man so no matter what they get angry and get sin, they can
still have a newness of life. Anger is a sin but the death and blood of Christ
is enough to cover it. Anger is a life-dominating sin. People can become
enslaved to anger; it temporarily satisfies the sinful desire and flesh of a
person but may feel guilty and ashamed when given a full vent. It is a vicious
cycle of self-destruction. Anger is an expression of false worship. When a man
expressed his anger sinfully, a man has does it for a reason. Thus, he has
something that wants to get and get sin just to get it. Thus, man idolizes
anything else rather than God that becomes as another sin and as a false
worship. Anger is often just a fruit. Anger usually has fear as its root, the
fear of man specifically. It is only the anger that is being seen, but it is
fearful, insecure, unsafe, untrusting heart looking for something from man that
only God can satisfy. Love God more because perfect love can cast out fear.
Anger can be righteous. “Be angry and do not sin”, one sinfully becomes angry
when he is getting angry at God but he can righteously become angry when he
becomes angry with God. Man can be angry on what angers God, so he must use it
at righteousness. Anger must be surrendered. To surrender their anger to God
freely, one must let out their full control over it; let the Spirit move
himself to action. Humble oneself in his broken state and surrender their
sinful anger to God. God is always there to give man His grace when it is needed;
man only needs to wait for the right time.


According to Bible,
“those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up
with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and
not faint” (Isaiah 40:31). Waiting on God is a regular refrain in the life of
faith and it is an expression of the healthy heart’s desire and an echo of the
unparalleled power and grace of God. Always renew faith and hope in God, it is
through by delays and pauses, and becoming aware of the lack of patience in
which God works to save people from self-reliance and revitalize their faith
and hope in Him. Patience comes with faith and hope. Faith for the moment and
hope for the future, faith feeds hope and give everything to God that man
cannot see and do, for He will give it to His people, just wait patiently. Pray
and give thanks. Be constant in praying to God, it let the eyes of man to see
the opportunities that are waiting on him and the blessing that is going to
award by God in him. Let the word of Christ dwell in man richly, teaching and
admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual
songs, with thankfulness in their hearts to God. Remember the Patience of God.
The pain of waiting can point the hearts of man to the life-saving patience of
God with this patience of God; humanities were being saved from sins and were
able to repent. To become truly patient, one must exercise of staying focused
on his goal. Man must deal with his problems and better be focused on the ultimate
goal which is, birth into God’s family and co-ruler ship with Jesus Christ of
the universe. Learning to think before speaking. To think before to speak will
allow man to be calm and think of a better way to make things or wait for
things. Looking for ways to give their service to others, man must not become
impatient as it images his selfishness; likewise, look for the shortcomings of
others. Working out their conflicts with other people. To be patient is to
love, with this people must abstain from any conflicts that he has and solve it
as being patient is like being god in likeness of Him, loving other people
wholeheartedly and patiently. Another, working with God through the Spirit to
develop Godly patience in themselves, developing a calm, positive attitude, and
peace of mind. People who have patience bear trials calmly. Patient people are
not hasty or impetuous but act with wisdom and discretion. God had wanted His
people to stand like a rock in the face of adversity. There would be really a
time in person’s life that the problems that is coming unto him are so
overwhelming that it is already hard to develop patience but always trust God
as it is the only way to gain patience.
