God has given you a counsellor. His name is the Holy Spirit. He is the Comforter, the Helper promised to lead and guide the saints. In a time of anger, pause and consult Him that dwells within you. Do not speak until you have heard Him. He does not contradict the word of God nor will He prod you into evil. Instead, He rebukes, comforts, admonishes and brings useful correction into situations. Even in starting your business, it is not unlikely that you will encounter scenarios that cause anger to boil in your heart … but pause, go to the Holy Spirit. Leave it to Him for a while. Soon you will have the right words to say and your wisdom and words will astound your hearers.
Luk 21:14 Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer: 15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
Do not dwell for hours planning revenge, or rehearsing an attack … ask God for the mouth and wisdom which your adversaries are unable to resist or flaw. Learn from Jesus, to reply rashness with wisdom.
Joh 18:22 And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high priest so? 23 Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou me?

Lord teach us your ways … Holy Spirit, be my counsellor and helper. Help my weakness in wrong words. Amen
As Nehemiah’s wall was built, so will we see a reconstruction in all that may appear in distress and in waste. Nehemiah trusted and feared God, putting his faith in the Almighty whose strength is limitless to exceed all our expectations. Look out daily for Nehemiah’s Wall in 2015 and do invite friends to subscribe to the free email or social media posts.
I am praying someone with a burden to be used by God in building will receive a fresh vision and get the job done.
