Do you ever feel like God is angry with you? Like you can’t do anything right?
Though God can be a God of anger, it is aimed specifically.
When God told Abraham of His intentions toward Sodom and Gommorah, Abraham began to plead for the cities.
Would God destroy everyone if fifty righteous people could be found? Then forty?
It was here that Abraham said something that seems strange to me.
Gen 18:30 “Let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak: Suppose thirty should be found there?”
Why would the Lord be angry at someone for interceding for them – even the exceedingly wicked (Gen 13:13) people of Sodom.
God’s anger is not directed toward good. It is directed at sin.
His anger is not against…
love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. Gal 5:22-23
His anger is not because of prayer and intercession. His anger is not at preaching the Gospel. He is not angry at praise and worship.
He is not angry with those that seek Him with their whole heart.
Abba, though I deserve Your fullest wrath, I am so thankful that You are not angry with me in Jesus name. YES&AMEN
