At Issue - Anger at God
Verse: Job 10:1–22
Your husband abandons you. Cancer claims a loved one. Your baby doesn’t make it. You’ve been sexually assaulted. And you want to know: Is it OK to be angry with God? First answer this: Does being angry with God mean that you think God is wrong or has made a mistake? When Job directed his anger at God, God reminded Job (for four chapters!) of his incomparable wisdom and power. He reminded Job that he’s never wrong. If you’re angry with God, talk to him about it. In your anger, don’t sin by turning from God, blaming God or believing he’s wrong (see Psalm 4:4; Ephesians 4:26). Ask him to help you accept his wisdom and work through your feelings.
