BSF notes


There are three types of anger that are sinful and lead to sinful acts: unjustified, contemptuous, and abusive. Righteous anger is anger at sin or at Satan; it leads to prayer.




Speak how you feel to God. The Holy Spirit will work it through.



Temptation is not sin. When the thought enters my mind, that is temptation. I can choose to dwell on it or to bring it captive to Christ.



Bring negative emotions to God to be cleansed and replaced with His emotions. (Ephesians 4:29-32; 1 John 3:15) Indulging in anger and hatred by choice grieves the Holy Spirit.



My note: The Spirit is a comforter. When I choose to hold on to negative emotions, I quench the Spirit and reject God's gift of comfort.



When tempted with impure thoughts, turn and think pure thoughts. (Philippians 4:8)



Refusing to forgive myself is a rejection of God's forgiveness.



God will bless as He restores the years that the locust has eaten. (Joel 2:25)



Retaliation comes in the form of revenge or a bitter spirit.



Sometimes God waits and tests us to see how much we desire what we ask for. Do I want it enough to search the Scriptures and seek understanding of His promises so that I can stand on them?



There are six reasons not to worry:



  1. God will take care of me.

  2. God feeds the birds, and I am more important than a bird.

  3. Worry doesn't help.

  4. God clothes nature.

  5. To worry is to live like the heathen.

  6. God knows my needs.



To seek God's righteousness, I have to work hard. Don't dishonor Him by murmuring, complaining, etc.



Judging is making a decision about another person's worth. Why do I care about another person's faults? The answer shows whether or not I am judging or teaching and admonishing. Think about myself using the same criteria first.
