Q. In previous posts you keep telling your readers that if you tithe regularly and support Israel you will be showered with blessings. If this is the case, why did my friend at work stab me in the back and steal my job? And why is my father now threatening to throw me out on the street because I haven’t found another one yet, even though I’ve only been laid off two weeks and I’m actively looking for work? There are a lot of things I stopped doing years now, such as witchcraft and watching porn. I’ve always supported Israel, financially as well as emotionally. Yet it seems I can’t do anything to please anyone, least of all God. I wish you would stop telling your readers lies.
A. When things are not going well, it’s normal to look outside ourselves for the reason. When we can’t find anyone else we blame God. Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble, but take heart. I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). Your temporary set backs are just that, temporary. I recommend you read Psalm 37. It tells us not to fret because of evil men but to trust in the Lord. If we delight ourselves in the Lord He will give us the desires of our heart. If we trust in Him He will do this.
Since Romans 8:28 says God is working all things together for the good of those who love Him, it’s His desire that the things you’re experiencing will result in greater blessings for you. The anger you feel is natural but if you let it control you, it could delay these blessings (Ephesians 4:26-27). Confess and be forgiven and then forgive those who’ve wronged you (Ephesians 4:31-32) and start looking for the good that will come out of this. These are not lies, but the promises of God who cannot lie.
