Is Venting Always Wrong?

Is God against "venting" our problems. The answer is in the Psalms. This 1-minute devotion explains. #BibleLoveNotes #Devotions #Bible

When people are upset, they often vent their frustrations.

There are wrong ways to do this, but the Psalms show us that God doesn’t mind a bit of venting:

Psalm 10:1: "Why, LORD, do you stand far off? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?"

Psalm 22:1: "My God, my God, why have you abandoned me? Why are you so far away when I groan for help?"

Psalm 69:20: "Scorn has broken my heart and has left me helpless; I looked for sympathy, but there was none…."

But notice how the psalmist refocused in each of the psalms above:

Psalm 10:14: "But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted; you consider their grief and take it in hand. The victims commit themselves to you; you are the helper of the fatherless." 

Psalm 22:27: "All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the LORD...."

Psalm 69:32-33: "The poor will see and be glad—you who seek God, may your hearts live! The Lord hears the needy and does not despise his captive people."

So go ahead and vent, dear Christians, but don't stop there.
