It feels good when God decides to answer our prayers. A Christian will be glad to find out that indeed God has listened and finally responded to his or her prayers. Sometimes one can pray and wait for an answer that might not come. This might be caused by what we do that make God angry. You want God to do one thing for you but you need to ask yourself what you are doing on your side. It is always important to reciprocate the love of God with holiness and righteousness. Below are therefore things that make God angry;

Pride.

This is what brought the devil and his angels to hell. They have been trying everything possible to make sure that some Christians goes to hell. This has been propagated through pride. Not even one proud person will accept correction. He will not listen to the word of God and will never change since he or she is proud. Humility is what matters in the kingdom of God. If you are humble then God will exalt you. He will humble you in undesirable way if you exalt yourself.

Lies.

God hates a lies or falsehood. This is whether you are lying in order to escape a certain temptation or trap. Whichever the circumstances never be tempted to lie since God hates a tongue that lies. John chapter 8 verse 44 says that and I quote, ‘’He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language for he is a liar and the father of lies.’’ Then Proverbs chapter 12 verses 22 also speaks of the same that lying lips are an abomination to the Lord.

Hatred.

It is difficult to hate one another then expect the Love from God. God is merciful and compassionate such that He forgives when the sinner repents genuinely. When one hates another, he can even commit murder. We all understand that God hates hands that shed innocent blood. This can be read in the book of Genesis chapter 4 verse 6 and 7.

A wicked heart.

This is the heart that plans evil. A heart that will never rest until it has made someone shed tears. A Person with a wicked heart will always have sleepless nights if he has not achieved his evil plans. Try to avoid such a heart and be compassionate. Love one another the way God loved the world. The love described in John 3: 16 was the initial example that God set to all mankind and therefore try as much as you can to emulate it. Jeremiah 17 chapter 16 says, ‘’The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. Who can know it?’’

Friendship with the World.

The bible says that friendship with the world is enmity with God. Wise people will try to flee evil that is found in the world. Separation is the key in this case since you aren’t going to allow modern styles to control your life. Try as much as you can to avoid evil. Proverbs 14 verse 16 says that a man fears and departs from evil but the fool rages and is confident. 1st Samuel chapter 2 verse 9 is more serious in this case. It says and I quote, ‘’He will keep the feet of his saints and the wicked shall be silent in darkness,’’
