Thousand Foot Krutch

Thousand Foot Krutch
I love this band. I listen to them daily. Even though we are looking at another camera, we all look like we're alert for it being a fan signing and it's 11:30 p.m. on a Friday.

God's anger was not kindled against Balaam until he actually took the action and prepared to go, saddling his donkey (Numbers 22:22). In his heart he determined to go and curse the Israelites for money, but he had not yet committed the sin. When he committed the sin, or took the action, he infuriated God.

The same with Cain. Cain was angry.

Genesis 4:6 - So the LORD said to Cain, “Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen? If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.”

Cain could not control his fury, and God knew it, but he was giving him a way of escape. Control it, Cain. Rule over it, which you CAN do. Cain did not rule over it. But notice he was not punished until AFTER he killed Abel. God did not punish him for thinking angry thoughts, but for acting on it and sinning and not ruling over the sin and anger. 

Watch your thoughts, they become your actions. If you stop or rule over your thought life, your actions will line up with it If your heart is pure, your actions will mimic that, you will not sin and you will not enrage God.

Praying you have faith, hope, and love always,
