Like Naomi In The Bible, Have Life Circumstances Made You Complain Bitterly Against God? Is What You Are Passing Through In This Life Made You Complain Bitterly Against God Even To The Extent Of Changing Your Name.
Let’s look at an old testament figure in Ruth chapter one about a woman called Naomi. Naomi left Bethlehem Judah to Moab with her husband and two sons Mahlon and Chilon and there in foreign land the husband and two sons died– Such a predicament befalling a woman at her age but something happened.
When Naomi began to sojourn back from Moab and if you read Ruth 1:19 “ So they two went until they came to Bethlehem. And it came to pass when were come to Bethlehem that all the CITY WAS MOVED ABOUT THEM AND THEY SAID, IS THIS NAOMI?
Looking at the passage the people were moved and they began to ask questions
1. Is this how life has kept Naomi
2. Is this how Situation/Circumstances has mesmerized this woman
3. Is this how the world has turned against this woman?
4. Is this Naomi that we used to know?
5. Is this how this woman Naomi that left Bethlehem with her husband and two sons nows looks like?
Have people asked such questions to you due to your condition?
The bible said people were moved and started asking questions.
But something happened and Naomi in response in verse 20 said to them “ Do not call me Naomi ( To her Naomi meant something nice, good and noble), Call me Mara ( Bitterness) for the Almighty has dealt bitterly with me.
—Notice the emphasis she laid here “ For the Almighty has…” Her life circumstances has led her to complain bitterly against God.
She didn’t stop here but she went further in verse 21 and said “ I went out full and the Lord has brought me home again empty, why then call me Naomi seeing the lord has TESTIFIED against me and the almighty has AFFLICTED me—-Very touching.
Here is a woman complaining so bitterly against God due to circumstances in her life because she thinks all hopes are lost.
Has Circumstances in your life ever made you to complain bitterly against God? Has life situation made you blame God in anyway?
Thank You Jesus.
