3 Truths When We Feel Wronged by God

When we feel wronged by God, do you know that there are 3 powerful truths we can lean into? Acknowledging these truths helps us cope and grow closer to God, despite our disappointment.

Here is a sneak peek of my guest post at Medium.com for Koinonia in which I share the truth about God when we feel wronged and disappointed by Him.

When I Felt Wronged and Disappointed by God

I couldn’t believe the unthinkable happened and my worst fears materialized. I prayed fervently for weeks, day and night, my whole being in the agony of total helplessness. God didn’t intervene in the way I hoped, expected, and prayed for. He allowed the worst to happen. My trust in Him was shaken to the core.

To the unbearable sorrow and pain from my loss, feelings of being betrayed and disappointed by God burdened my heart and clouded my mind. Thoughts that make me doubt His goodness and faithfulness attacked my mind daily.

This should not have happened. Never. It is cruel and not fair! You are not fair.

How can I trust You when You took my most precious thing?

It is not safe for me to trust Your protection and love.

I don’t understand why You did this.

Remember to pin me for later!

The Struggle with Doubts and Lies

Perhaps you struggle with similar thoughts when you face the darkness of a death experience. This could be the death of dreams, relationships, marriages, businesses, bodies, and daily losses and disappointments

These death experiences are like open doors for insidious lies if we are not careful. We start doubting God’s love, character, and, most of all, His faithfulness and trustworthiness.

The more I perceived God as my opponent and enemy, the more my disappointment, anger, and pain intensified. It was nearly impossible to set my feet on the road to healing.

How could I find healing when I doubted my Healer?

How could I have hope when I mistrusted my Hope-giver?

Perceiving God as our opponent and enemy increases our pain and hinders our healing and restoration. #truth #healing #encouragement Click To Tweet
