Anger is a normal physical response in animals,man included,to any event perceived as a threat. It is a good tool God built into us to help protect us from harm. Be angry and sin not let not the sun go down upon your wrath. Temper on the other hand is a lack of control of ones behavior and an attempt to control or punish the source of the anger,in a stressful situation. Tempers run rampant is aggression. Anger when expressed in quite voice is maturity with wisdom.

These chronic "Temper" cases as stated by the temperamental indidual usually denotes guilt on account that these ppl realize that they trow a fit or get angry at people who uasually are loving to them, their "loved ones", the innocent. Here is what I sugest: Go to the worst part of town, where not even the police go much. Once in there put on your best "Temper" seizure against the meanest ppl you come across.

ALL:What is anger?Wrath rage annoyance strong displeasure.Leading to all kind of actions even murder so it is a sin against the 4th Commandment.

Age brings about some changes and maturity. Your temper may improve with age. You also count the cost before you let your temper get out of control. You need to ask yourself:what is the worse thing that can happen if I lose my temper(when you feel yourself about to blow)?. This may help you control your temper.Especially if losing your temper at that time,will cost you a great deal,ike your job,for instance. Prayer helps,too.

Think of the Lord for a moment, Not the one thats in Heaven right now, But when He was Ripped to Shreads By the cat of 9 tails for your/our sins & then Stand him next to you, Then ask yourself: If the Lord was really standing their What Would I Do right Now? I Bet you'll Do the Right Thing, I had a Bar-room Whore of a Mom & 4 Abusive Dads, not counting all her Boyfriends By the age of 12, I know about Anger & what to do with it, LET IT GO! My Mom has found the Lord & all is well.

Losing one's temper is something we all do. We all have come short of the Glory of God.(Romans 3:23) Just remember, that when we act out of anger, it is giving into temptation, which is a choice. God always provides a way out of temptation.(1 Corinthians 10:13) Also, a person knows a christian by the fruit they bear. (Galatians 5:22) Self control! A tree won't bear good fruit without proper pruning. We have to let God prune us so we can bear His fruit.

pamea3353, (1.)(Ephesians 4:26,27) says be angry and sin not, neither give place to the devil. Ask the Lord to direct your temper toward the devil and his kingdom. You will need some of that temper at times in regard to satan. Decide you are going to yield your body (Romans 6:13)
, including your mouth (James 1:26) to the Holy Spirit. It takes time for some , it took time for me! Many are stubborn , in regard to disobedience but this doesn't edify, learn to be stubborn about pleasing to the Lord...

Turn your concern over to the Lord..first. Learn to pray when you feel yourself becoming angry over something or at someone. A hot temper is a terrible demon you are dealing with. The bible says anger rests in the bosom of a fool. Also says: don't make friends with an angry man. A hot temper spealls TROUBLE...big time. Ask the Lord to take that from you.

Pray for the Holy Spirit to be in you at the time that you feel your temper rising. Stay in prayer and if the situation allows, seperate yourself from the thing causing anger. Go for a brief walk while praying and meditating on the uselessness of the feeling in relationship to what is going on. Seek God for peace and breath deeply and slowely all the while. Don't try to solve a problem while your temper is rising if you can help it. Gain control first. Hope it helps. Blessings

The best control for temper is prevention. Excessive temper is usually the result of excessive irritation at something. When you begin to "lose your temper" take a moment and ask yourself "Is this really such a big deal? Will anybody care a year from now? Is it possible that my judgment of a situation is not the standard all others should be held up to? Perhaps I am over-reacting." Try to find if there is a fault with yourself before deciding to scorn somebody else with your temper.
---Anthony on 5/19/07

There's a story about a man who prayed for patience. During that day he lost his temper six times.

When praying at the end of the day, saying, "Lord, I asked you to give me patience," the Lord replied, "But I gave you six chances to practice patience today alone."
---Jack on 5/19/07

I think you have to realize that most things we get angry about are really trivial things.

After you get angry examine the situation - think of how you could of handled it differently. Pray about it and try to remember to do that the next time. If you do that each time you lose it - you will start learning about what sets you off - how to avoid it and think about how to deal with it before you react. You have to retrain yourself.

---Spike on 10/4/06

A wise minister once told me(in a similar situation)"we should surround ourselves with those people who represent what we want to be". Then I read "tribulation worketh patience". So I worked to become friends with people who gave of themselves to help others. Shared love and peace with their families, friends, and strangers. It took a while (and still does)but through God's people I learn patience, with myself as well as others.

Meditate on Bible passages about peace, long suffering, how our victory is in Christ, etc. Put those verses in your mind over and over until they become a part of you. Once that Word becomes a part of you, it will set you free.
Joshua 1:8 This book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it by day and by night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall act wisely.

Prayer. Ask God what the root is. Believe Him. I had anger - I tried to stay in the Spirit all the time. But, sometimes honestly I was not. Had to find out what it was. I was angry at God for years. Hurt by what He allowed. I was afraid to vent to Him. "I am angry at you!"
But, it came out - as face to face with God. I feel freer today. Not hiding that fear. Anger does steam from hurt. What is it that is touchy with you? - Personal you'd rather not talk about, or face? Start there.

If (remember if) there is demonic activity going on you can fight it and take medication but you will have to have the demon(s) cast out before you will have relief. The spirit of peace will expel the spirit of wrath. Good overcomes evil. Seek some people who will help you with this.

Christina, very encouraging testimony.

Donna9759 , You are a living testimony of victory in the Lord, not defeat. I hate to hear about defeat with no solutions all the time coming from "Christians", many all out sinner's sound happier, this is wrong because our Lord suffered greatly to bring us victory, victory , victory, victory in Jesus, not bondage, He breaks the yolks, if we will only believe. Amen and Amen. God bless your heart! --Mrs. Morgan

If you walk by the Spirit, you won't carry out the desires of the flesh. I know that's a broad answer, but I used to have a bad Italian temper. When I asked the Lord how to get rid of it, He told me to cry out to Him to get set free. Then He showed me that when I walk by the Spirit, I won't get angry and go off the deep end like I used to. Today, hardly anything gets me that angry. I walk away from people now. I fill myself up with the word of God and I prayed for wisdom and revelation knowledge.
---Donna9759 on 10/3/06

Pamea3353 - I cried out to God many times to please take my temper away from me. I believe that Jesus took my anger on the Cross. The Lord delivered me.

I has grown up never loosing my temper, thought I had no anger issues. WRONG! When saved God started bringing out things in me, ie: temper, grieved me so but was unable to totally control/illiminate it. I prayed much and sought Godly counsel and prayer and God delivered me. Confess your faults to one another that you may be healed. (We all need healing) Bless you
---christina on 10/2/06

pamea3353, Remember that you shouldnt give up, run the race and dont be discouraged if you stumble, don't look back, don't allow the enemy to discourage you. Always remember that those who endure till the end will be saved(Hebrews 12:1,2)(Revelation 3:21)(Philippians 4:13)(Romans 12:2). I have lifted you up in prayer, and felt God's Holy Anointing, Don't be discouraged now! God Bless.

pamea3353,(2.)...pleasing Him, doing His will! Remember that you battle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities(Eph. 6:12).Be careful and gird yourself with the whole armor of God(Eph.6:11-18), and be sober minded, when you are around those people/situations that flare you up. Learn to ask the Holy Ghost for help, God is patient, and will help you as you learn to surrender all to Him. Pray for the mind of Christ(Philippians 2:5), study how our Lord dealt with difficult people/situations...
