Do you ever feel like God is angry with you? Like you can’t do anything right?
Though God can be a God of anger, it is aimed specifically.

Why would the Lord be angry at someone for interceding for them – even the exceedingly wicked (Gen 13:13) people of Sodom.

He is not angry with those that seek Him with their whole heart.
Abba, though I deserve Your fullest wrath, I am so thankful that You are not angry with me in Jesus name. YES&AMEN
