RRT Chaplains Praying With Woman

Answering the Question ‘Is God Mad at Me?’

Dear Friend,

Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria have caused destruction and human heartache on a massive scale. Crisis-trained chaplains from our Billy Graham Rapid Response Team have poured into South Texas and Florida, and they will deploy to Puerto Rico the moment conditions make it practical.

A team has also deployed to Las Vegas in the aftermath of the horrific shooting massacre there.

People struggling through a storm or enduring tragedy sometimes ask, “Is God mad at me? Maybe I did something wrong, and God is judging me.” I don’t believe that. If there is sin in our lives, we urgently need to repent of it, but storms are going to come in life.

Jesus Christ went through the storms of life. Storms often cause us to refocus our priorities, and that is important because our relationship with God is the highest priority.

For those who put their trust in Christ, we know that no matter what the storm is—whether it’s a hurricane or a storm of cancer or grief or anything else—God loves us and He cares.
