Do You Have a Grudge Against God?

“These things I have spoken to you, that you should not be made to stumble.”


What causes people to develop a grudge against God? Some possibilities are persecution, disappointment, rebuke, resentment at being rebuked, and envy at how somebody else is being blessed. The Lord Jesus knows we all have this tendency to resent God. In John 16:1-4, Jesus said, “These things I have spoken to you, that you should not be made to stumble. They will put you out of the synagogues; yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he offers God service. And these things they will do to you because they have not known the Father nor Me. But these things I have told you, that when the time comes, you may remember that I told you of them.”

Jesus was saying, “I’m going to Heaven. I’m leaving you here. Don’t get offended.” If you’ve got a grudge against God, tell God about it. If you’ve got honest questions, bring them to God. Don’t come to the Lord with false expectations. You say, “Pastor, I thought it was wonderful to serve Jesus.” It is. If I had a thousand lives, I’d give every one of them to Jesus Christ. I’m not disappointed in Jesus, but I don’t want to carry a grudge because of any false expectations.

  • What are examples of false expectations a person might have of God?
  • What are some specific false expectations you may have of God?


Take time today to confess any false expectations you have of God. Ask Him to help you release these so that you won’t hold a grudge against Him.
