Often we find ourselves, like the people in Malachi’s day, lodging a complaint against God. Why? Because He didn’t do things the way we thought He should. Because we don’t like the situation we are in. Because we want more than what He has sovereignly given us. Because He didn’t meet our expectations.
Just like spoiled, selfish children.
But the granddaddy of all complaints is found in Malachi 2:17 where the people accuse God of blessing evil and ignoring good: “Everyone who does evil is good in the sight of the Lord, and He delights in them.” Or, “Where is the God of justice?”
Want to see how God responds? Then keep listening.
