Prayer to Release Anger

Prayer to Release Anger

Heavenly Father,

Please help me to dwell on the good and the positive in my life. I know that it is You who examines our hearts. Search the inner depths of my heart and expose anything that is not of You so I can be set free of it.

Lord, where I have directed anger toward others in my life or held anger inside of me, I confess that as sin and ask You to forgive me and take all the anger away. Heal any wounds that I have inflicted, through my words and actions, in others and myself. Help me to speak sweet words and healing, for I know that pleases You. Where I have shown anger toward others I confess it to you as sin. Bring Your restoration to every situation where it is needed.

Thank You, Lord, that You will redeem my soul in peace from the battle that is against me. I believe that You, the God of peace will crush the enemy under my feet. Help me to live righteously because I know there is a connection between obedience to Your ways and peace. Help me to depart from thoughts of anger and bouts with depression; help me to seek peace and actively pursue it. Thank You that You will take away all anger in me and keep me in perfect peace, because my mind is fixed on You Father.  In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen

School of Dung; Modern-day Josephs and Remnant Church

Enrolled In The School of Dung
By Michael Fain Edds 
Tuesday, January 22, 2008 

Rated “G” by the Author.

Why do bad things happen to Godly people? Is there a purpose for all of the hard times we go through? “Enrolled In The School of Dung” focuses on the purpose behind the seemingly tough times we go through.

“Enrolled In The School Of Dung”

 

There is a special remnant of believers whom I call the “Joseph Generation.” They are a divinely appointed people whom God has been preparing for a specific time of ministry. Like Joseph, God has placed within them a “life plan” or specific destiny or calling to fulfill in life. They have divine giftings within them to fulfill that life plan. Paraphrasing Psalms 139:1, the Scripture states: “All the days planned for me were written in Your book before any came to be.” Ephesians 4:8 records these words, “When He ascended on high He gave gifts (His abilities) to men and women.” The heart of God is recorded in the words of Matthew 9:36, “When He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them because they were weary, scattered like sheep having no shepherd.” GOD CARES ABOUT PEOPLE. That is His nature. His compassion always leads to action.

“JOSEPH:”

God looked down through the ages of time and saw a day and time that would bring starvation on the world and upon His people. In His compassion, God prepared a plan and a man in advance to meet that critical situation. He placed that plan along with the divine abilities to fulfill that plan in the soul and life of a man called Joseph. Jeremiah 1:5 states, “Before you were born, I knew you and set you apart. I appointed you as a prophet to the nations. You must go everywhere I send you and say whatsoever I command you.” Joseph, like the Joseph Generation today, was born by the will of God, not by the will of the flesh. Joseph was born with a life plan and abilities from God. Did he know the fullness of that life plan? No, he did not. He knew that he had administrative abilities, gifts and special insights. His destiny and life plan called to him through dreams, an inward sense of purpose and through circumstances. Did Joseph immediately step into his life plan and destiny? NO, he did not. He was enrolled in the “SCHOOL OF DUNG.” Psalms 105: 16-22 describes that schooling. He was rejected and hated by his own brothers, sold into slavery, he was laid in irons and chains, his feet were hurt with fetters, he was falsely accused, innocently sent to prison, and the Word of the Lord tried him severely. His destiny, which called to him, and life’s situations were horribly in conflict. Life had gone to “hell in a hand basket.” Thoughts raged through Joseph’s mind and soul: “God, you promised me wonderful things. What I am going through is the total opposite of what You revealed to me long ago. Why am I suffering rejection, false accusation, hatred and abuse? Where are You in all of this, Lord? Have you forsaken me? Were all those things just a mere dream, a fantasy of my mind? Why does this inward sense of destiny still call me when it looks impossible for any good to come to me?” THE WORD OF THE LORD TRIED Joseph! When creating a vessel for special purpose or honor, a wise potter follows a certain procedure. There is a plan and destiny for the lump of clay in the potter’s hands. The clay is pounded, pressed and pressure placed upon it to make it pliable. It is placed upon the potter’s wheel and pressure applied to start molding it into shape. When the desired shape is achieved, the potter places his creation into the kiln for intense heat to be applied to harden it. After cooling, stain is applied to this hardened pot. It is fired again to make sure the stain and colors are permanent. The pot is beautiful and ready for use, right? NO! The wise potter wants his creation to be completely ready for its intended purpose. He places it on a shelf in a dark, lonely place to age. When the time is right, he takes the pot out of the darkness and brings it into the light for use. Otherwise, an unprepared vessel could break and spoil the contents it carries.

The Word of the Lord tried Joseph. “Has God forgotten me? Has He abandoned me? Have I missed it somewhere?” Like the potter, God allowed Joseph to go through the “dung of life,” the pressures, the heat, the staining and the lonely darkness in order to prepare him for the destiny which had called to him all of his life. God had not forgotten nor abandoned him. God heard Joseph’s many prayers, laments, and cries of desperation. He felt the hurts and anguish of this man of destiny. Many times He would have, wanted to and could have intervened to deliver Joseph. However, He tied His own Hands and refused to deliver Joseph out of ultimate love for him. He knew that if He took Joseph out of the “school of dung,” that intervention would destroy the divine destiny God had prepared for him. It would destroy the process of making Joseph into a vessel of honor and great purpose.

The Word of the Lord tried Joseph until the day that His word came to pass. That word was, “the king has need of thee.”Joseph’s prison door was opened, his garments changed, and he was ushered into the presence of Pharaoh. He went from prison to position in a moment’s notice! His destiny had arrived! All of the dung and hardships that Joseph had gone through suddenly made sense. People had meant those things for evil BUT GOD HAD MEANT IT FOR GOOD, FOR THE SAVING OF MANY LIVES. Joseph was completely ready and prepared for the destiny for which he was created. He never failed nor dropped the ball. He successfully fulfilled the plan of God.

A special generation now exists, which has felt throughout their lives an inward sense of destiny and purpose. That destiny has called to them every day of their lives. That divine destiny has called to them through dreams, visions, an inward desire or passion, and through circumstances. However, like Joseph, they have been enrolled in the “school of dung.” They have unjustly suffered rejection, jealousy, hatred, been forgotten, falsely accused, and have been misunderstood. Their pure motives have been suspect. Their love has been not been reciprocated. They have felt imprisoned on an island of loneliness and rejection. Life has not been kind nor gentle to them. The Word of the Lord has severely tried them. Their divine destiny or life plan has been in conflict with the situations in which they find themselves. Their prayers seem to bounce off a heaven made of brass. They feel that they have been placed on a dark, lonely, dusty shelf. Purpose has evaporated. They have even cried out to God to “just take me on home.” Where is God in all of this? Out of infinite love, God has allowed this generation, this Joseph Generation, to endure this school of dung. He has refused to intervene until they had been prepared and perfected for the destiny to which He has called them. He is creating a generation that will be “selfless” rather than “selfish.” Like Joseph, they will graduate from the school of dung as vessels of honor. They will not fail nor drop the ball. They will be totally prepared to fulfill the destiny to which God has called them. They have been prepared for a day and an hour of great ministry. They will be ushered from prison to position suddenly. The time has come for the “Master Potter” to walk into that dark lonely room. He will stretch forth His Hand onto that dusty shelf and pick up the vessel that has endured the long night of solitary isolation. Gently, His Hand will wipe away the dust and bring forth that special vessel. The words will be spoken, “The King has need of thee.” The time of preparation will have ended. Destiny has come! The long endured hardships will suddenly make sense. Joy will overtake them. Their life plan and gifting will be activated.

The Joseph Generation is a secret weapon that God has prepared in the school of dung, in the darkness, in the isolation for such a time as this. They are about to be suddenly unleashed upon the kingdom of darkness. God has prepared them to meet the great needs of this present generation. They will have the Master Potter’s image upon them. They will have the forgiving heart of Joseph who said, “You meant it for evil, but God meant it for good to the saving of many lives.” They will be a selfless people who will give the glory to God. They will not fail. So, Joseph Generation, take heart. Your bitter night is about to end. It is sunrise not sunset. Joy comes in the morning! Even now, the door is being unlocked and opened. Listen for the words, “the King has need of thee.” God has not forgotten you! Yes, He has seen your tears and heard your cries. He is opening a door which NO MAN can open or shut. … Josephs take courage! THE KING HAS NEED OF THEE!
