Have You Ever Accused God?

Possibly every believer, at one time or another has accused God. These accusations arise from many circumstances: misunderstanding God’s purpose, frustrations from individual trials, or having clouded vision.

Early in life, God called Jeremiah to be a prophet and a warning voice to a stubborn idol-worshipping people. Obediently he revealed God’s prophesy of their future destruction if they continued in their wickedness and detestable idol worship. They didn’t like God’s warning.

Jeremiah was irksome to them; he was rejected and suffered severe persecution from his people. They beat him and threatened him with death. He wondered, “Why is my pain unending?” In his anguish, he seemingly accused God and judged Him like mankind judges, of being shifty and deceptive with Him. God refuted that accusation and quickly dealt out harsh words to Jeremiah: “If you repent, I will restore you…if you utter worthy, not worthless words.”

My unwise words have been many, and I have uttered them for a lot lesser reason than did Jeremiah. Could you, thinking as mankind does, have unjustly accused God only to regret speaking those irrational thoughts? Deceptiveness is against God’s holy nature. He is the only righteous One who is trustworthy, and uniquely works out His plan in us. Then God encouraged Jeremiah: “I am with you to rescue and save you.”

Worthless accusations draw God’s crushing rebuke. Wisely remember Jeremiah, and quickly ask His forgiveness, and acknowledge that God’s holy nature would never allow Him to deceive you - ever.
