“You will never get life to conform to your expectations, no matter how hard you try. God controls the affairs of life, and the intensity of your desires will not persuade Him to relinquish that control.” Walter A. Henrichsen (“Walt”)
Thoughts From The Diary of A Desperate Man
“And they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron, and said unto them, Ye take too much upon you, seeing all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and the Lord is among them: wherefore then lift ye up yourselves above the congregation of the Lord?” Numbers 16:3
Dathan, Korah, and Abiram complained to Moses that the priesthood belonged to the people, and for Moses to take it from the people and give it to his brother Aaron was wrong. God intervened and destroyed the three men and all that joined them in their confrontation. Thousands died because of it. God has no patience for such lamentation.
If you complain to anyone other than God, you do not understand your God. Because God is in charge, there is no such thing as having a problem with another person. Complain against God with the right attitude and all will be well, for He is not threatened by your lamentations. But you will find that He doesn’t take kindly to your getting mad at one of His servants.
Many tend to believe the opposite: that you can get mad at others, but you had better not become angry with God. The only kind of anger that God rebukes is when you challenge His authority in an act of rebellion. Get mad at God, but never threaten him with statements like, “If He does this to me I will cease following Him.” But if you get mad at God’s servants, it is difficult to predict what He will do to you.
