God is in a GOOD mood all the time!
I don’t know about you, but ever since I was a young believer, I was brought up thinking that after Adam and Eve sinned God was constantly angry with all of us.
I would hear preaches on God’s judgement and destruction of entire nations in the Old Testament. Even after Jesus dealt with sin on the cross in the New Testament, God was still very angry with us and, if we didn’t turn away from our sin, God would destroy us again. At any moment God could bring down judgement on an unsuspecting person, family, town, city or country, and we just had to accept it.
I have even heard pastors say that the reason one person is healed and not another person is all because God is unpredictable, and works in mysterious ways! That if you lose a loved one, especially a young child, it’s because God wants them back in Heaven to make His garden look pretty, and the reason God gave your child or family member a sickness was a way of bringing Him Glory!
I don’t know about you, but if God is like this, I would find Him very hard to trust, love and obey. I certainly wouldn’t want to call Him Father God.
Now, before you get all upset with me, let me explain where I am going with all this!
