There is no easy cheat for that. You can scrape the lines with a wide putty knife, that has the edge filed sharp at a right angle, then sand, and repaint. Anything else will just make a bigger problem.

I don't thing the putty knife is necessary as you may gouge the wall and then have to make a repair to the wall. You will have to sand the paint ridges smooth and then repaint. Rollers do not leave ridges if used properly. So you may want to learn how to use a roller or have someone else do the painting for you.

I definitely wouldn't scrape either but before you start sanding watch this entire video first. If those lines you have aren't really thick you might be able to cover them using the correct way to paint shown. Just try a portion of a wall and see if doing it will cover what you have before wasting time sanding. I've painted over dried lines before and it worked nine times out of ten (used to own several rental properties).
