Are You Angry at God?
How can we stop being angry at God?
First, realize we don't have all the information that He has. Dt. 29:29 says, "The secret things belong to the Lord"... and He's not obligated to tell us. If we knew that He knows, we would sheepishly say, "Oooooohhh, that's why!" When we stand before Him, He will answer all our questions, but until then, we must continue to trust Him.
Second, we've got to stop blaming God. God gets blamed for so many things He doesn't do. Just read Job 1-2 to see how Satan likes to cause destruction and then pin the blame on God.
Third, we must lower our expectations. We get angry because we want God to meet our demands. That's pride, and we know that "God resists the proud but give grace to the humble" (James 4:6). It could be that your anger at God is actually keeping you from being blessed. Humble yourself and ask God's forgiveness. If you will, you'll find that your anger will vanish.
