Recently, I turned on my YouVersion Bible app reader and was listening to Psalms, and what struck me was how many times the psalmist ends one psalm in praise, and starts the next one lamenting, “Why have you not listened to me? Why have you left me?”
It’s kind of how often we put things at the foot of the cross, rejoicing and trusting in expectancy of how the Lord protects us, and picking it up again when He’s not moving in the way and time we want. And then we lament, like the psalmist.
What encourages me – and hopefully you – is that even the saints of the Bible whined a little too. I wonder if sometimes God wanted to ask, “Do you want some cheese with that whine?” (just kidding)
The question is: Can we surrender like the psalmist and return to rejoicing in every situation?
What we need is Jesus for that whine!
