January 20 – Scripture of the Day



Have you ever gotten mad at God? Ever yelled at God? Ever gotten into an argument with God?

If so, you’re not alone.

In chapter 7 of Job, he cries out to God. And it’s not in a gentle, loving way. Job is, in fact, angry. He’s hurting. He’s lost his children, many of his servants, and much of his property.

The scripture that stood out to me today was Job 7:11 which says: “I cannot keep from speaking. I must express my anguish. My bitter soul must complain.”

That’s Job speaking to God.

God created us for his glory. He wants relationship with us. So much so, he’s ok with us being angry at him.

Yelling at him.

Relationships are about communication, and relationships are not easy. And all communication isn’t positive.

So, if you’re mad at God, tell him. Let him have it.

He a big God, he can handle it.
