TOPIC : OFFENDED AT GOD (PART 2)
Scripture :Matthew 11: 6. And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! We shall continue what we started yesterday, that it is possible to be offended at God! Yes many are already offended at the Lover of their souls and as such have forsaken their First Love! I was there before but God helped me out and I’m sure if you are one of those who are offended at God, please, God is passing through my voice to invite you for a reconciliation;
Isaiah 1: 18. Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: …

Today, our focus is to explore possible reasons why a mortal man should be offended at God.

What could make people be offended at their Maker?


The following are my view on possible reasons why men are offended at God:
1. When expectations are not met (Matt.11:1-10):
Our opening scripture reveals that John, the forerunner of Jesus was offended in Him because certain expectations were not met. This why we established previously that never you expect much from people because that is sure way into of offence. For your information, John was a cousin to Jesus! Besides, he was the one that baptized Jesus. So there were high expectations from JOHN when he was arrested and jail, he was expecting Jesus to come to his rescue, and when he couldn’t get any he began to get offended

Beloved what happens to you when you expect God to intervene in a certain way and God chooses not to?

As the year is gradually coming to an end now, there are many unfulfilled expectations, unfulfilled prophesies etc! Those who began the year with high expectations and high spirits are gradually going down. Some are already offended at God. Others are in dilemma and are asking, “is it the pastor that is deceiving us or is it God that is giving us fake prophesies? Who is really lying?” This has bred bitterness in the hearts of many. Beloved, whatever is your reason, please don’t be offended at God because the consequences are scary and it can abort destiny.

2. When you feel God has abandoned you(Lam.5:19-20, PS.22:1-3) : There are times when you feel abandoned by God because of our human nature! David felt like that also:
*Psalm 22: 1. My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?*

But such feelings are a lie because God promised never to abandon us;
Matthew 28: 20. … and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Hebrews 13: 5. … for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

3. When we don’t understand what God is doing (Hos.4:6, Isa.55:8-9): Many times our offence stems out of lack of knowledge of God and His ways :
Isaiah 55: 8. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.

Beloved I don’t know the reason why you are offended at God; probably because of unanswered prayers, a feeling of rejection or lack of knowledge of the ways of God. You need to straighten the cord between you and your Maker. If you don’t want to end cheaply like John the baptist. How can a man with such a strong prophecy on his life die just like that? How can a man who was so anointed that he revived a nation back to God be beheaded just like that, as if he was never anointed? The answer is simple, offence made that happen! Chai! Offence is a destroyer of love and when love is absent, the oil(anointing) dries off.

Dear pastors, brothers and sisters in Christ, please don’t allow offence between you and your Maker. Otherwise, your prayer time would be complaining time with God. Those that feel that God has not done them well are always full of murmuring and complaining. They are never candidates of the blessing.

Remember this : Heaven is real and hell is real! If you reject Christ on earth, you have simply rejected the only way out of eternal damnation. Give Jesus a space in your heart today.

Prayer points :
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord I repent of ever taking up a quarrel against you. I’m sorry Lord, I will not complain again in Jesus name.
Prophetic Declaration :
– I prophesy your season of turnaround is here! You are blessed and lifted.
– I declare a fresh wave of the spirit of love and passion for God sweep over you now in the name of Jesus.

From your brother Alex
God bless you
