The ANGER of GOD

SOURCE:  Max Lucado

Do not confuse the wrath of God with the wrath of man.

The two have little in common.

We get ticked off because we’ve been overlooked, neglected, or cheated.  It’s the anger of man. God does not get angry because He doesn’t get his way. He gets angry because disobedience always results in self-destruction.

What kind of father sits by and watches his child hurt himself?

What kind of God would do the same?

Do we think he giggles at adultery? Or snickers at murder? Does he shake his head and say, “Humans will be humans?” God is rightfully angry. Our sins are an affront to his holiness.  Habakkuk 1:13 says, his eyes are “too good to look at evil; he cannot stand to see those who do wrong.”

God is angry at the evil that ruins his children. He cannot be indifferent that his creation is destroyed and his holy will trodden underfoot.

    I really appreciate this perspective of God’s anger. I remember reading over a devotional regarding the difference of God’s anger and human anger. It was eye opening and gave such a change in my perspective being a child of God. We mustn’t fear to make Him angry, but to seek how to always go to the Heavenly Father no matter the circumstances. He will help us learn and teach us how to not grip the fear of anger, but let love come before all else. Max Lucado is one of my favorite authors. Thank you!
