Are You Angry with God?

In 1 Chronicles 13:10-11

And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzzah, and he struck him down because he put out his hand to the ark, and he died there before God. 11 And David was angry because the LORD had broken out against Uzzah. And that place is called Perez-uzza to this day.


In this selection of the Word of God, we see David angry with God. Sometimes God does things (or we perceive that God does things) that make us angry with Him. The other day I was speaking with a lady who had not been involved in the body of Christ for years because she was angry with God over taking the life of her husband. This lady like David was angry with God.

Has God done something that angered you lately? These feelings of anger are not necessarily sin, but they often quickly lead to sin if they are not confessed and forsaken.

If anger against God is interfering with your fellowship with Christ or the church He died for then Satan has accomplished his intent. He has done in your life what he did with Adam and Eve. He has you questioning God’s right to Sovereignly rule as He sees fit and has put a wedge between your fellowship with God.

Don’t let Satan do that. Confess your sin of being angry with God to the point of interfering with fellowship and forsake your anger. Each of us must trust that God always acts in the best interest of the world as He pursues and preserves His glory. If this is hard for you to understand or you are angry with God; instead, of running away from God in anger run to Him in your anger and tell Him you are angry and ask His grace to help you understand His wise, benevolent, just decisions and ask Him to help you get over your anger.

If you are still struggling see a good Christian friend, with a Biblical worldview, or your pastor and ask them to help you seek God’s grace together to gain the victory.
