It isn’t surprising that the Word tells us to not let the sun go down on our wrath, because in the everyday things of life, if we don’t keep a strong enough determination to see things through to completion, we don’t see the results we wanted to see or receive the victory either. If we get all fired up about a business dream that we are sure we would be good and successful at, but lack the determination it takes to see it through, it’s like falling asleep in mid-stream—We never see the end result we saw in the beginning. There are many people who have allowed such dreams to slip by, simply because they lacked the furriery determination which was needed to see it through to the end. And now, they can only say, “I could have did that,’ or, ‘Hey, that was my idea, I thought about that.’
Do these statements sound familiar to anyone? I know I’ve said them before. But just as the sun settles down to rest, so does our determination, unless it is directed and guided by a better source than ourselves. This principle works in the same way when receiving the promises of God in our life—such as finances, healing and more. That’s why the Scripture tells us if we do not faint, and become weary we will receive victory in the end. Galatians 6:9 We don’t reap, if we grow weary—if we allow the sun to go down on our wrath (on our fight against what is attackng us).
Jesus was angered at the things going on in temple of God. There is an anger that we should have, and it is not sin to do so. We are to hate the things that God hates, and hate them with our whole being, nothing wavering. Sickness and disease came about because of sin, it is of the devil, but today many of us have learned to tolerate it. We tend to accept it much like the Jews accepted what was going on in the temple. Let’s be sure of what we stand for, and then give it our all, not allowing the sun to go down on our wrath.
Father, we know that You are always there to guide us in the direction we should go and the things we should do--may we learn how to become so determined that we see these things through to victory in Your Son, Jesus. Thank You for providing all we need that pertains to life. May we always keep our eyes on You Lord so we continue in Your strength and endure to the end. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
