Psalm 22:1 To the Chief Musician. Set to “The Deer of the Dawn.” A Psalm of David. My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me? Why are You so far from helping Me, And from the words of My groaning?

From the death of a loved one to a layoff at work, people have their reasons for holding a grudge against God. God didn’t meet their expectations and now they’re mad.

A grudge comes from receiving and accepting the lies of Satan. He’ll say, if God really loved you, this wouldn’t have happened or if God really was a protector, He wouldn’t have let that happen. If we entertain and agree with those thoughts, it can turn into a grudge.

Satan uses these tactics to separate us from God. We’re not going to church, praying, or reading the bible anymore. He’s using all our anger and emotion to destroy our lives. Holding a grudge has us missing out on God’s favor, miracles, and blessings.

So, don’t fall into the trap of holding a grudge against God. Get down to the bottom of the situation by going to God. It’s okay to be angry but go to God with that anger and get answers. He’ll tell us why it happened and how to prevent it in the future. We may not always like the answer, but a reason was given. Receive God’s love, peace, and forgiveness and let go of the grudge.

Ephesians 4:31 Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.
