"Shall not the Judge of the earth do what is just?" -Genesis 18 :25

Thoughts I have had this week...reading about Job...again, I love this story, his trust in God when all went wrong, I thought a lot about how angry he must have been.

Being angry at God is never right. It is wrong, always wrong.
Now don't get me wrong, it is ok to express our anger to God, but to judge or outright disapprove of God for what he allows and does is wrong. We are but just puny people, full of ourselves and to disapprove of what God does is wrong. We can be angry at sin, angry at the evil one, but God knows what is best...he does what is right and just.
God sees our anger, there is no hiding it from him, but if we should be angry at him we should talk with him about it, confess that we feel this way and ask for his help and guidance so that we might trust fully in him, trust in his wisdom.
When Jesus died on the cross for our sins, he removed the wrath of God from our lives. Forever! We have a merciful God...always...even when life seems like more than we may be able to handle.

I was just meditating on this thought today after reading a different passage. I think it was from Psalm 42?
