Let God handle unfair circumstances

Ok, so I am burying myself in my Bible study this morning! The next section of Prasso is talking about anger. I read a story about Moses in Numbers 20 about Moses getting water for the people. Moses was angry with the people because of their behavior toward him when they needed water. He spoke to them in anger, and then he struck the rock to get water to come out. Such a small thing, but God rebuked Moses for not demonstrating His holiness. I know that I have often responded wrong and failed to demonstrate God's holiness. Here is another quote from Prasso:
God is not the author of sin. He never condones, causes or excuses sin. However, at times, He does allow His children to experience the consequences of another's sinful actions. Moses took the brunt of the Isrealites' selfish and rebellious actions. The fact that he had experiences harsh treatment...did not excuse his responsibility to trust the sovereignty of God. Although God allows people to act contrary to His will, He promises that nothing will ever happen to you contrary to his will.
"Your greatest difficulty in dealing with anger will be your unwillingness to believe that God's way of handling life's unfair circumstances is the best way."
