Bible verses about blaming God
Are you always blaming God for your problems? We should never blame or be angry at God especially for our own foolishness, mistakes, and sins. We say things like, “God why didn’t you stop me from making that decision? Why did you put that person in my life who caused me to sin? Why did you put me in a world with so much sin? Why didn’t you protect me?”
When Job was going through severe trials and tribulations did He blame God? No!
We have to learn to be more like Job. The more we lose and suffer in this life the more we should worship God and say, “blessed be the name of the Lord.”
God has nothing to do with evil only Satan does and never forget that. God has never promised that Christians won’t suffer in this life. What is your response to pain? When times get tough we should never complain and say, “it’s your fault you did it.”
We should use adversity in life to cherish God more. Know that God is in control of the situation and all things work together for good. Instead of looking for every excuse to blame Him, trust in Him at all times.
When we stop trusting God we will start to harbor bitterness in our hearts toward Him and question His goodness. Never give up on God because He has never given up on you.
When bad things happen even if it’s your fault, use it to grow as a Christian. If God said He will work in your life and He will help you through trials as a Christian, then He will do just that. Don’t just tell God you’re going to trust Him, actually do it!
- “If you don’t do your part, don’t blame God.” Billy Sunday
- “Don’t hang on to old hurts. You can spend your years blaming God, blaming other people. But in the end it was a choice.” Jenny B. Jones
- “Some people create their own storms, then get upset when it rains.”
