3 Things To Do When You’re Angry With God
So maybe you’re angry with God. We all get there sometimes. (Yup, even pastors do.)
If you don’t consider yourself a Christian, your anger might be what’s keeping you from trusting Christ and becoming a Christian.
If you are a Christian, you probably feel guilty for feeling angry with God. And like anger in any relationship, our frustration can get in the way of our relationship. Maybe you feel distant or detached as a result.
So what do you do when you’re angry with God, other than stay angry?
Here are 3 things that have helped me.
1. Talk to God About It
So can you talk to God about how angry you are with him?
Yes you can.
In the Old Testament, Moses did. He was upset with the fact that God had called him into leadership and things were going so poorly. Rather than walk away, quit or talk to other people about it, he prayed about it. You can read the prayer here.
So why doesn’t God just smite us if we’re angry with him and we tell him?
Think about it. If someone you loved was angry with you, wouldn’t you rather talk to that person rather than have them simply walk away from the relationship?
Because that’s what happens with anger. If you don’t talk to God about it, you end up walking away.
So talk to God. He’s listening. And he hasn’t walked away.
