Is God mad at me? - Isaiah 54:9-10

In Isaiah 53, we see a prophecy about Jesus’ suffering on the cross and His payment for our sins. In the next chapter, Isaiah 54:9-10, we get to see what our relationship with God is now like after the redemptive work of Christ:

“‘To me this is like the days of Noah, when I swore that the waters of Noah would never again cover the earth. So now I have sworn not to be angry with you, never to rebuke you again. Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,’ says the Lord, who has compassion on you.” (NIV)

God makes it very clear. He will never be angry with us again.

But what if I’ve failed and sinned? Nothing can ever again separate you from God if you’ve put your trust in the finished work of Christ on the cross. God has punished all of your sins on the cross when Jesus carried them for us. He will never condemn you, or punish you again. It has been paid for by Jesus.

What if I don’t believe it?

Whether you believe God’s promises or not, doesn’t make them any less true. It will, however, hinder you from enjoying the intimacy with God that Jesus has purchased for you. Don’t waste your time questioning whether God really meant that promise in Isaiah 54:9-10. God’s Word is true, and you can believe it. Even when you feel like God is mad at you, stand firm on the Word of God and thus grow your faith.
