Jeremiah 20:7-18 is a beautiful picture of a real man having a heart to heart talk with God.
Sometimes even the people with the strongest faith, who are in the most difficult circumstances, have difficulty seeing the good in the situation.  Jeremiah was honest with God.  Yes, he knew the truth – we see that in vv. 11-13 – but it didn’t make his situation feel any better.

God never promised you that life would be easy.  Nor does God want you to pretend that it is.  What God wants from you is an authentic heart that is not afraid to speak the truth in all circumstances, even if it means telling God that you are getting tired of being the only one who is willing to do what is right.  God’s big enough to handle your honesty.  He invites it, and wants to carry your burden for you.
