We all know the passage be quick to listen slow to speak and slow to become angry that is out of James. For some reason I’ve never read the book of James in the mirror version but this really struck me this morning.
James 1:19 Consequently, my beloved Brethren, (when you’re faced with temptation and contradiction) Ponder the word that reveals your true origin, do not Ponder the problem, that is how frustration is conceived. Rather remain silent than to give anger your voice. (Quick to hear slow to speak slow to anger.) The mirror version
This puts a whole different light on whatever you’re facing, mainely temptation. So basically when you are being tempted then get in the word so you can be reminded of Who You Are. You’re true origin of where you came from. Stop Believing the lies and get out of the problem and into the solution
James 1:20 anger distorts the picture and brings no credit to compliment God’s righteousness. 21 get rid of any remaining residue of evil that polluted your life before (if a quick temper was your problem then, don’t make it your problem again.) Welcome with sensitive embrace the word that powerfully conceives salvation in your soul (saving you from negative thought patterns and present emotional traits.) 22 give the word your undivided attention, do not underestimate yourself. Make the calculation. There can only be one logical conclusion. Your authentic origin is mirrored in the word. You are God’s poem, let his voice make poetry of your life! The Mirror
I don’t know if there’s anything that I could add to this other than if you’re not in the word get in it.
