Have you ever been angry at God? Of course you have. Life has a way of crushing us all, and when that happens, we often get angry at God about it.
When you’re angry at God, what do you do? Do you try to handle it yourself? Or do you lash out at God in your anger? This study of Jonah 4:2 reveals what Jonah did, and you will find it very encouraging for your own prayer life going forward.
The Text of Jonah 4:2
He prayed to Yahweh and said, “Now Yahweh, was this not my word to You while I was in my own land? So that is why I fled to Tarshish. I know that You are a God who is gracious and compassionate, taking long to get angry, having great loyalty, and is sorry about doing evil.”
In this discussion of Jonah 4:2 we look at:
- The shocking revelation that Jonah does in fact know what God is like
- The five terms that Jonah uses to describe God
- Why it is good and helpful to pray when we’re angry
