When the Lord heard them, he was furious. The fire of his wrath burned against Jacob. Yes, his anger rose against Israel, for they did not believe God or trust him to care for them. But he commanded the skies to open; he opened the doors of heaven. He rained down manna for them to eat; he gave them bread from heaven. Psalm 78: 21-24 NLT
God was angry.
So what did God do?
God provided just what the people didn't think God could give them. Imagine what God would have done if the people had not rebelled but had remained faithful!
Has God ever been angry at you? How would you know? In fact, if God is this generous to us when he is angry, what would God's generosity to be like when God is pleased with us?
What steps can you take this very day to make it up to God? How can you please God more and more in your life?
God, have you been angry with me? Forgive me. Help me to be more in step with you and closer to you each day. In Jesus' name. Amen.
