Who Should We Be Mad At?

Why do people get mad at God? Does He do anything wrong? He is God. Who are we? We are allowed to get mad. We are allowed to get angry. “Be angry [or stand in awe] and sin not; commune with your own hearts upon your beds and be silent (sorry for the things you say in your hearts). Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!” Psalm 4:4 AMP There are things that should make us angry. We just need to be careful who we direct the anger toward and our actions because of the anger and also examine the reason for our anger. God may allow stuff but He does not cause all of it. Sin will bring about a lot of anger. Sin hurts those that are living a sin but that sin also hurts those around them. We should hate the sin but not the sinner. We should hate Satan for deceiving those that fall into sin. We should not be mad at God for the choices that we or others make. Consequences come and we often know what the consequence could be but still choose to commit the sin.

God is big enough for us to tell Him about our anger but don’t blame Him for what is happening. He is God. If He allowed it, it can be turned into good no matter how evil it seems if it is given to Him. The difference is whether we give it to Him or choose to deal with it our self. We often make bad choices if we aren’t in a right relationship with God. We can’t control the decisions that others make. We can do our best to influence them but we must be accountable for our decisions and our relationship with God so that we know what to do. God is the only one with the whole puzzle. We can only see one puzzle piece or maybe a few.
