4 Reminders that No, God is not mad at You

A 5 Minute Read Christian Article by Adrian Goh Guan Kiong

Have you ever felt that God was angry with you? Did you ever think that this was the end? Have you ever made a promise to “do better” over and over again? Have you ever said to God, “This is the last time I’ll do this” and returned to the same sins you vowed never to commit again?

If that’s you, I’m about to give you a hello:

Welcome to the club. It may sound crazy, but your situation is not unique to you. Because we fall into these places of temptation and failure, we tend to believe that God is angry with you.

I want you to know today that God is not mad at you, and to prove it, I want to share with you 4 reasons. Then you can be sure that God is not angry with you.

Here are four reminders that God is not mad at you:

1. God loves you unconditionally: The Bible teaches that God loves us unconditionally, no matter what we have done or how we may feel. In Romans 8:38-39, it says that nothing can separate us from the love of God. God’s love for us is not based on our performance or behaviour, but on who he is.

2. God forgives and forgets: When we confess our sins and ask for forgiveness, God not only forgives us, but he also forgets our sins. In Psalm 103:12, it says that God removes our sins as far as the east is from the west. This means that God does not hold our past mistakes against us.

3. Jesus took the punishment for our sins: When Jesus died on the cross, he took the punishment for our sins so that we could be forgiven and have eternal life. In Romans 5:8, it says that God demonstrated his love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. This means that we do not have to live in fear of God’s anger because Jesus has already paid the price for our sins.

4. God wants to have a relationship with you: God desires to have a personal relationship with each of us, and he invites us to come to him. In Matthew 11:28-30, Jesus says, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” God wants to comfort and encourage us, not to punish or condemn us.

These reminders show that God is not mad at us, but rather he loves us and wants to have a relationship with us. We can trust in his love and forgiveness and turn to him in times of need.
