Rage

You’re angry at God.  Why?  Are you disappointed?  Do you feel cheated?  Life unfair?  Do you believe that God has let you down . . . or that He actually hurt you?

Maybe He has come to you with an answer to your problem and you didn’t like it.  Did you turn and walk away in disgust?  Are you like Jonah sitting under a dying plant?  Or are you like Job refusing to curse God?

What do you DESERVE?  God doesn’t owe you anything and yet He has offered you everything.  The scriptures say not to sin in anger.  When we get angry we tend to act irrationally.

Stop and calm down.  God has an answer for you.

2 Kings 5:So Naaman went with his horses and chariots and stopped at the door of Elisha’s house. 10 Elisha sent a messenger to say to him, “Go, washyourself seven times in the Jordan, and your flesh will be restored and you will be cleansed.”

11 But Naaman went away angry and said, “I thought that he would surely come out to me and stand and call on the name of the Lord his God, wave his hand over the spot and cure me of my leprosy. 12 Are not Abana and Pharpar, the rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? Couldn’t I wash in them and be cleansed?” So he turned and went off in a rage.
