The Raging Heart—A Perfect Storm

Pastor Jay continues his “Guard Your Heart” series this week with a sermon titled “The Raging Heart—A Perfect Storm,” from Proverbs 19:3.

Proverbs 19:3 (ESV)

When a man’s folly brings his way to ruin, his heart rages against the Lord.

We need to get honest about the rage that is in our hearts. 

  • Rage is destructive.

  • Deal with your heart rage.

    • Repent
    • Pray
    • Keep growing in Christ.
    • Discipline yourself.
    • Look at your health.
