Your Mind, Your Mouth and Your Master

January 14, 2020

Have you ever heard the Scripture, “In your anger, do not sin” (Psalm 4:4, Ephesians 4:26) and thought to yourself, This sounds really great … but how do I actually live this out? 

The good news is, you’re not alone! We all struggle with this because we’re human. And as long as we’re human, we must choose to trust God with what makes us angry instead of fighting back in our flesh. Today on The Proverbs 31 Ministries Podcast, you’ll hear a helpful message by Lysa TerKeurst from our 2019 She Speaks Conference, where she shares what God has shown her about forgiveness. We pray that this message equips you, both spiritually and practically, to walk through whatever you’re facing today.

In this episode, you will…

  • Gain clarity on who or what you serve by looking at the key roles that forgiveness and humility play in the story of Cain and Abel.
  • Learn how to let go of the need to fix the person or situation you’re frustrated with by meditating on Scripture that aligns your heart with the goodness of God.
  • Discover how to forgive someone for an offense by asking the Lord to help you find compassion for the hurt they might’ve gone through.
