“O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up.You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. You know what I am going to say even before I say it, Lord.” (Psalm 139:1-4)
As human beings, we get angry. We get angry with our family, we get angry with our friends, and sometimes we even get angry with our God.
There are times that I’ve been really angry at God. But honestly, I believe this anger has been brewing deep down inside for a very long time. As a matter of fact, this type of anger I was feeling is actually generational.
Everyday I would find myself asking God why things are the way they are. I ask myself, why must I face such trials and overwhelming opposition day after day as Christian. Unsurprisingly, I even felt like my anger was causing my relationship with God to be strained. The real reason is because I had stopped turning to God in these areas. Too many times I have prayed and asked for help, asked for peace. But day after day I felt like I was beat down by one obstical after another.
I did not want to read my Bible, I did not feel like going to church, and worst of all, I had stopped praying or asking God for help.
It’s true that when we are angry with someone, we tend to give them the silent treatment to let them know that we are still angry. However, God already knows that we’re angry!
He knows how angry we are, and He knows why we’re angry. And you know what? We need to talk to God the most when we’re angry. That’s when we need to feel His presence, and read His word, and know His perfect love for us!
You can be 100% real with God. Actually, you really have no choice. God already knows your heart. It’s okay to say, “Oh Lord, I’m so angry right now! I don’t understand why (insert reason for being angry). Oh Lord, I feel like You’ve forsaken me. Oh Lord, I need You more than ever right now.”
Lastly, when you’re angry, remember that God loves you so much! He died for you. Everyday, He is working miracles in your life; even when it doesn’t feel like it.
Lay your heart before God today and ask Him to take your anger. Push deeper into Him instead of farther from Him
“Lay your anger down at the foot of the cross, Jesus can handle it”
Heavenly Father, Thank You for loving me. Please forgive me for my sins and remove this deep rooted anger that I have kept deep in my heart. In my daily struggles and continuous opposition from the enemy I started blaming You Lord. Asking myself why You don’t make life easier for me. My life is hard, always has been. I ask humbly to help me remove the deep rooted pain, the dissapointments. Please show me these things so that I can give them over to You. Help me rebuild my dreams again, I pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Have you ever received Jesus as you Lord and Savior? If you do not know Him personally, I encourage you not to pass up the precious gift of His love and eternal life. Jesus died on the cross for you and me. Jesus loves us and wants to help us through the storms. If you have not asked Jesus to be your Lord and Savior please click here 4 Simple Steps to Jesus
