The scripture for today, February 27, is Jeremiah 2:27 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
“ ‘Why do you bring charges against me? You have all rebelled against me,’ declares the Lord.”
People sometimes blame God for bad things happening in their life that are no fault of their own. They don’t really want to blame God because they want to think God loves them. But there is no one else to blame. No one else to blame? Oh, yes, there is. There is Satan. We tend to forget Satan is out there too. It is Satan who causes bad to happen, not God.
Is that what you’ve done lately ~ blame God for bad happening, then rebel against him? Or do you know someone who is going through many problems not of their doing or choosing? Are they blaming God and rebelling against him? Help them. Remind them of Satan.
People want to blame someone. They will be relieved to be reminded that Satan exists. Now they can put the blame were it belongs.
Let us not blame God for the bad. Instead, let us thank Him for the good.
