God’s Answers To Our Complaints, Part 2

Do you complain about these things? I do. Then I look to the Bible for the answers. Here are some complaints and God’s response:

I feel depressed and alone.
God says in Deuteronomy and Hebrews that He will never leave us or forsake us.

I worry about everything. What can I do?
Cast all your anxiety on the Lord because He cares for you (1st Peter 5:7).

I’m out of money, overdrawn, bills are piling up. I want … I need …
God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4: 23).

I wish I was smarter, younger, prettier, thinner, taller, richer ….
Jesus said, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (2nd Corinthians 12:9)

I feel so alone; everyone is against me.

Romans 8: 31 says “If God is for us, who can be against us?”
