Jeremiah 30:24 The fierce anger of the LORD will not turn back until He has executed and accomplished the intentions of His mind. In the latter days you will understand this.
The Lord is deliberate, purposeful and intentional to do everything He has determined. He will not brook our interference or, worse, attempts to thwart Him. Man's countering of God's instructions and actions arouse His ire - just as you would become angry if someone else ignored you or deliberately did the opposite of what you asked. We do not understand everything that God does in the world around us in real time, but at the end - when everything is solved and sorted - we will then be able to see with hindsight (and divine explanation as necessary) exactly what was going on at the time and why God did what He did.
For now, we have to trust Him and acknowledge that He knows best and is the only one who can see the whole picture.
