The Lord said to Job: “Will the one who contends with the Almighty correct him? Let him who accuses God answer him!” (Job 40:1-2 NIV)
How do you contend with or accuse Almighty God? Do you demand answers when things don’t go your way? What If you lose your job, someone close to you is ill or dies, finances are tight, you fail or an unexpected change occurs do you demand answer from God?
The next time you decide to complain to God consider how much He loves you and remember Job’s reaction when he had his chance to speak. Are you worse off than Job or more righteous than He?
Give God a chance to reveal His greater purposes for you, but remember that they may unfold over the course of your life and not at the moment you desire. (Life Application)
