They made him angry by the waters of Meribah,and Moses suffered because of them,for they aroused his temper, and he spoke rashly.
Psalms 106:32-33 NET
Psalms 106 recounts the Exodus of the Israelites and their journey in the Wilderness. The author mentions how the Israelites didn’t fully obey God and continued to have problems because of there disobedience.
Their disobedience even pushed Moses over the edge one time and caused him to respond in anger. His anger caused him to make a bad decision, in which he didn’t fully obey the Lord either.
As a result, he didn’t get to enter the Promised Land with the generation that was allowed.
Responding in anger doesn’t bring about the desired outcome. God still holds you accountable for your actions.
You need to know yourself and how you respond when you’re angry. If you need to walk away or take a breather, do so.
You don’t want your anger to move you into disobedience and hinder what God wants to do in your life.
When you weigh the things of God vs the things of this world, you realize that nothing on this Earth is worth losing your focus on God.
Lord, help me to always see things from Your perspective. Help me to always respond in a way that is pleasing to You.
