Finding Hope, Not Hope - So, For Your Soul
Finding Hope, Not Hope - So, For Your Soul 

                          Angry at God          

"Call upon me in the day of trouble;

I shall rescue you,

and you will honor me. 

Psalm 50:15

I recently sat beside a beautiful young mother

on a Delta flight.  

When I asked her if she had children,

she pulled her photo album out of her purse.

"This is my son," she said. "He is autistic.

I did everything right when I was pregnant with him,

and still he was born with autism.

All my friends children are perfectly normal, but not mine."

"Are you angry at God," I asked?

 

 

How about you?

Have you ever been,

or are you angry at God

because of something that has happened in your life?

 

 

Talk to God about your feelings. 

Search the Scriptures for real life testimonies

of people who had great trials,

but were able to trust God

in spite of their circumstances.

 

Deuteronomy 29:29

gives a great answer to the WHY

of our circumstances:

"The secret things belong unto the Lord our God;

 but the things which are revealed belong to us

and to our children for ever,

that we may do all of the words of this law."

 

In other words, there are secret things and there are revealed things.

God lets us in on the "why" of the revealed things.

However, the secret things do not belong to us.

So, that means we must trust God with the secret things

and continue to live for his glory,

which is the ultimate best for us.

 

"Let us then fearlessly and confidently

and boldly draw near

to the throne of grace - the throne of God's

unmerited favor [to us sinners];

that we may receive mercy [for our failures]

and find grace to help in good time

for every need - appropriate help

and well-timed help,

coming just when we need it"

(Hebrews 4:16 AMP).
