Topic: Angry With Your Maker? [Teens Open Heavens 21 October 2018]

Memorise: “Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherd of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it? What makest thou? Or thy work, he hath no hands? Isaiah 45:9

Read: 2 Kings 13-14 (KJV)

Bible In One Year: Jeremiah 5-6, 1 Timothy 1

MESSAGE:

In 2 Kings 5:11-12, when Elisha did not meet any of Naaman’s expectations, Naaman was angry. In his rage, he set out to return to his home country, but for the timely intervention of his servant. Anyone who is angry with God is merely wasting his time. It is very dangerous to be angry with God or His servants.

Some people are angry with God because He has not answered some of their prayers. It is possible that you have been tempted to be angry with God at one time or the other. Whenever this temptation comes, know that your miracle is at your doorstep. The devil has seen the miracle being released from Heaven, and so he tries to prevent you by sowing seeds of doubts and anger in your heart. No matter how bad things appear, never get angry at the only One who can help you.

Key Point: In which areas have been angry at God or holding a grudge against Him? He who fights God is a loser.

Hymn 9:

1. I am so glad that our Father in heaven
Tells of His love in the book He has given;
Wonderful things in the Bible I see;
This is the dearest, that Jesus loves me.

Chorus
I am so glad that Jesus loves me,
Jesus loves me, Jesus love me;
I am so glad that Jesus loves me,
Jesus loves even me.

2. Though I forget Him and wander away,
Still He doth love me whenever I stray;
Back to His dear loving arms would I flee,
When I remember that Jesus loves me.

3. Oh, if there’s only one song I can sing,
When in His beauty I see the great King,
This shall my song in eternity be,
“Oh, what a wonder that Jesus loves me.”
