Have you ever felt angry with God? OR, is that you right now? Maybe you are navigating a valley that doesn’t feel right or fair to you. Maybe, someone you know is going through something they don’t deserve.
Being in this world can sometimes make you wonder why God allows bad things to happen, and that might frustrate you or even make you angry at God. Today, I’m digging into this topic and recapping Jonah’s chapter 4 in the process.
I pray this blesses you.

Learn how to embrace your current situation with faith that God can make things work out
Be aware of God’s grace and mercy so that you can extend it to others

Check out these episode highlights:
01.43 – A brief summary of Jonah Chapter 4 – the final chapter
Jonah expresses his dissatisfaction with God’s actions in response to Nineveh turning toward the Lord
Two times, God asks Jonah, “is it right for you to be angry?”
03.52 – It’s so important to remember that, while others may do things that culture sees as horrible or even things that culture says aren’t that bad (or not bad at all), sin, no matter what that sin is, separates us from God.
04.25 – How you might be justified in your anger toward God
05.54 – Reflection Questions to Help You Work Through Your Anger
What do you believe about God? Do you question that God is just when unjust things occur in the world or in your life?
Do you trust Him and His sovereignty completely?
If the answer to the latter is YES, you have to ask yourself: are you angry with God or angry with someone else. If it’s someone else, is that someone else YOU?
06.58 – One of the things that I found so intriguing in Jonah chapter 4
09.44 – Why I wanted to do this episode
10.42 – My encouragement for you…
Our anger at God is sometimes the result of not understanding the true cause of the issue. Usually, it’s unmet expectations.
Whenever you are angry with God, be open and honest with Him. Ask Him to help you understand your situation.
