28 Anger Towards GodPosted: August 1, 2012
Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to Whom we must give account. Hebrews 4:13
After a crash, we can vacillate between doubting God and feeling angry with Him. “If He exists and is truly all-loving, all-knowing and all-powerful, why did He allow this crash into my life?” How do you phase this question? Regardless of the specific words, this question disturbs us.
To remain firm in our faith, we need to deal with our anger towards God. No answer satisfies the question “Why did You let this happen to me?!” No answer can satisfy the question. We need God Himself to meet our hearts. We need His presence and comfort. Nothing can satisfy, but God alone. Even though we will not fully know God until Heaven, we can still get glimpses of Him while on Earth.
Do you want more of God? Cry out to Him! He will show up for you. We open our hearts to Him When we cry out to Him. He already know what we are thinking and feeling. We do not protect God by withholding ourselves from Him. Neither do we protect ourselves by keeping ourselves from Him.
Tell God exactly what you are feeling. If you are angry with God, tell Him! I know, this sounds sacrilegious. This does not sound true, noble, right, honorable, excellent or praise-worthy to tell God we are angry at Him (cf. Philippians 4:8). God is to be worshiped and glorified forever (cf. Rev 4:8-11). Yes! And we need to be open and honest with Him! Telling God what is going on inside of us is not only important, it is right and true. A friend once said, “He is big enough to take it.”
Think of telling God what you feel towards Him as a form of prayer. Telling God what you feel towards Him shows that: 1) You believe that He exists. 2) You believe He is all-loving, all-knowing and all-powerful. 3) You trust Him enough to share your deep and dark thoughts with Him.
If you keep your anger towards God to yourself, you will only end up holding onto them. Crying out to God will help you to release your feelings to Him! Own them, then let go of your negative feelings. Healing is a process. Keep crying out to God as long as you have intense negative feelings.
