When trouble comes, how do you react? Do you blame your problems on some horrible sin you committed? Do you convince yourself that God is mad at you because of that? “I disobeyed God and now He is punishing me,” you might say. Well, I’m here to blow a hole in this is big, fat LIE! God is NOT mad at you and let me tell you why.

It’s true sin can open the door to the enemy. Personally, I believe that prayerlessness and not paying attention to the Word of God are two of the biggest. So many Christians live their lives without letting God in. They might even go to church every Sunday but they don’t hunger and thirst for God’s presence, they don’t read the Bible much. They choose to engage in other activities and not make time for the Lord. Listen, if you are not spending time in God’s Word every day and getting with Him in prayer, you are doing yourself a huge disservice. When trouble comes, you won’t be ready to stand against the enemy. You’ll be like the man in Matthew 7:27 who built his house on the sand.

Still, even if you are guilty of these sins or any others, there is a wonderful opportunity that is before you day and night. All you have to do is walk through the open door. That opportunity is found in I John 1:9. This verse says that when you sin, if you are truly repentant and sorry for your sin, you can come to God and confess it and be forgiven.

I want you to really think about that because when you say God is mad at you, you essentially believe He is holding a grudge against you. That is the opposite from the truth in I John 1:9. It is opposite of God’s nature! God is not capable of holding a grudge because He is HOLY! Men hold grudges. God NEVER will.

It’s time for you to get out of this mode of thinking. God is NOT mad at you. God is love. God is good. He has the best intentions toward you. There is NOTHING that can separate you from His love, not even your sin. He already proved that. When you were at your worst, God sent His best – Jesus – to atone for your sin. So, stop giving the enemy a foothold by accusing God of evil. Receive forgiveness. Receive the love of God.

You see, any kind of wrong thinking including believing God is mad at you will hinder your faith. And, when trouble comes, faith is what you need. Strong faith requires confidence and if you believe God is mad at you, you’ll buckle under the pressure. You won’t believe that God is on your side and is willing to help you.

Yes! God is on your side! God is for you and no one can be against you (Romans 8:31).

I want you to understand that I’m not talking about taking sin lightly. I said earlier that you must truly be sorry for sin. When you are, the door to a changed heart and mind is open.

Yes, God wants you to change and He will help you. Feed on His Word daily and you will grow strong enough to resist temptation

Let me end by restating what I said earlier and that is God is NOT mad at you! He is not holding anything against you. That would be evil and God is not capable of evil. He is a holy God. What’s more, He loves and forgives you. So, RECEIVE His love and forgiveness today.

Love,

Karin
