Blame (No) God

b8afc10650e00bc138f0c57d44e164ee“You speak as a foolish woman speaks,” he told her. “Should we accept only good from God and not adversity?” Throughout all this Job did not sin in what he said. (Job 2:10)

God seems to get more blame than credit and praise. It’s as if we want the accolades of accomplishments while we give the responsibility to God when things go wrong. We might even go to the extreme of declaring there is no God, yet He is the first we blame for pain and wrongdoing.

What we project onto God doesn’t change Him. What we understand about Him changes us.

God is God, no matter what. We can’t fit all the pieces together, but our limits don’t need to change our trust. God is okay with the responsibility He has. We’re the ones that struggle with them, as well as struggle with our own.

Struggling is okay. Questions are okay. Confusion is okay. Doubt is okay. But do all those things with God. Otherwise, we’re simply spinning in our own limited perspective with no true reality check.
