Our pastor asked our congregation this question in church this morning. As I scanned the sanctuary I saw many members of our church family that I assumed would have had the same answer as I. Yes, I have been angry with God. Have you?
Maybe its because you lost a child, or suffered a painful illness, lost a spouse or your job. Maybe you're struggling with family issues or financial difficulties. I think in one way or another we have all been there. Even people in the Bible were mad at God; Jonah, David, Job...we are all human. The important thing is that we don't stay angry with God. The bible tells us in Psalms 10 verse 14 that God cares about our needs and understands our hurt.
We are his children and he loves us and wants us to trust in Him even when times are tough. He will see us through.
The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: "I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness" (Jeremiah 31:3).
In my own life I have seen God's love for me even more during those times of grief and anger towards him. He will "never leave you nor forsake you". (Hebrews 13:5)
Happy Sunday Friends!
