determine what happens to us but we can have the control of our attitudes and reactions to these demanding situations of life.
When in a temper the brain is not properly engaged, thinking is irrational, and so unwise words and actions can result (Prov 14:17). Take control of your emotions and calm down, for we should be “slow to become angry, because it doesn’t bring about the righteous life that God desires” (Jas 1:19,20). God said to Cain, “Why are you angry? You must master it or it will master you” (Gen 4:6,7). Jesus said anyone who is angry with his brother is in danger of experiencing God’s anger toward them (Mt 5:22). The Bible’s instruction is “In your anger don’t sin or let it continue to control you”, resolve the issue and get rid of anger (Ps 4:4; Eph 4:26,31).

his anger but a wise man keeps himself under control” (Prov 15:1, 16:32, 19:11, 29:11). The Bible instructs us to "Rid yourselves of anger, rage..." (Eph 4:31; Col 3:8).
When God gets angry it is the righteous response of His holy nature expressing displeasure at sin and sinners who live contrary to His standards (Ps 6:1, 7:11, 30:5, 86:15; Jnh 4:2; Nah 1:3; Mk 3:5; Heb 3:11). Human 'righteous anger' has the proper focus, the proper motivation, the proper control, the proper duration, and concludes with the proper result. However, our temper is often motivated by selfishness and directed toward other people instead of toward sin.
