The 2016 Presidential race has brought one ugly behavior to the surface in us Americans: anger.
William DeFoore, an anger-management writer, described anger as a pressure cooker: we can only apply pressure against our anger for a certain amount of time until it explodes. (Wikipedia)
Sadly, I believe DeFoore is correct and that America has a pressure cooker atmosphere right now, just waiting to explode.
My prayer today:
Lord, help us American believers to put away all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, slander, malice, and instead, help us to be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave us. (Based on Ephesians 4:31-32)
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?
Join with me on Thursdays to fast and pray for America.

The spirit of rebellion! If we won’t get it out of ourselves as individual Christians we won’t get it out of the church. If it doesn’t come out of the church it doesn’t come out of the nation. No repentance, no authority.
As usual, right on target. Thanks for your insight.
