Don't Blame God- its Not His Fault

"O give thanks unto the LORD;
for He is good: for His mercy endureth for ever."

You can find this exact phrase or a
very close paraphrase in ALL these places:
1 Chronicles 16:34
2 Chronicles 5:13
2 Chronicles 7:3
Ezra 3:11
Psalm 100:5
Psalm 106:1
Psalm 107:1
Psalm 118:1
Psalm 118:29
Psalm 136:1
Jeremiah 33:11

While working today Ive been listening to a great Bible teaching by Andrew Wommack-"God is a Good God" -that starts by examining our misunderstandings about the sovereignty of God...we have so messed this about! I have friends and family who are mad at a God that they are trying hard to believe doesn't exist and the root of this anger is a direct result of this "tradition of man" that has so permeated Christian teaching.

The series I was listening to is no longer up on the website, but here is a previous one that Andrew Wommack did: "The True Nature of God"

Keith Moore also has a series on the goodness of God available at no cost here: "God is Good"

Here are some of my favorite books by Andrew Wommack:


  1. It's true that being "mad at God" over the bad things that happen is a very natural response when we don't know the Truth about Him and what He is really like, and what He has told us He will do, and will not do; and indeed, a great misunderstanding about His sovereignty! I vividly remember being very angry at God myself many years ago - hurting terribly, and crying out in anguish "Why, God?!" at the bad things that happen in the world, and in my own life at that point. Then, a few years ago I learned the real truth of that very matter. The explanation is quite simple, actually: mankind has an enemy (hint: it's not other people) - that serpent of old, called the devil and Satan - who "goes about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour". And God's Word goes on to say "Whom resist, steadfast in the faith". (faith in God's Truth, that is). Over the years, I came to understand that we who have believed, and received as Saviour and Lord, His dear Son are not helpless against these things. Why? Because "For this purpose was the Son of God manifest, to destroy the works of the devil". And knowing these things, we can rejoice! I realize this sounds simplistic, and there ARE more pieces to this "puzzle", but not room to write them here :)
