|2 Corinthians 2:9 My grace is sufficient for thee.|
The one time that is it mentioned in the Bible that men curse God or in other words are angry at God is in the Revelation, while the World is suffering under the God's judgments. Yet anger at God is not new to man. Some believers spend part of their Christian walk angry at God. We are often angry at God for:
Injustices in the world
We are angry at God for breaking our hearts and dreams. When we hurt to the depths of our souls we become angry at God for our pain.
How can a loving God let us suffer like this we reason. How many of us have been in this place. Our anger is real and felt to our soul. Some of us will even yell at God and curse at Him. We feel wholly justified. Some some situations that people have suffered through we can totally understand their anger.
I remember the case of a man who lost his son. His 16 year old boy was hit by a van while riding his bike. It nearly severed his arm and he was left with some brain damage. He went into a coma and his father prayed for his life and miraculously he awoke from the coma. One year later an electrical fire caused their home to go in flames. The family made it out of the house and the father was assured that his son was safe because his dog made it outside. Sadly he never made it out of the home and was burned to death in the fire. The anger this man felt against God raged. Who of us can judge when considering how we might react at such a traumatic loss. But many of us are angry at God for the many things that go wrong in our lives. We blame Him for the losses and frustrations we suffer.
The Scripture does not mention man’s anger at God except when it comes to the Tribulation. In Revelation chapter 16 we read three different times that men curse God as they suffer under God’s plagues. In Revelation 16:11 we learn that with cursing they also do not turn to God or repent from their sin. God will allow unpleasant things in our life and instead of it drawing some of us closer to him, we grow angry at God and bitter and continue in our sinful ways.
Paul had an infirmity, an area that caused him suffering and he could have gotten angry that he was not being healed. He prayed that God would heal him and take it away. In 2 Corinthians 2:9 Paul stated, "And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness."Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest on me." God does not view our suffering as we view it and our area of pain can become an area where his power rests on on us.
The first commandment tells us that we should have no other gods before God. Often our gods are the very things we get angry at god for not giving to us. We do not see it that way. It is easy to put our jobs, spouses and family members in front of God. This is why Jesus said that if we are not willing to leave all behind to follow him we are not worthy of Him.
When God is in the place in our lives He should be, we do not get angry at Him rather we see His hand in our lives. We trust that what He is doing is for our best and we praise Him rather than curse Him.
