These daily online studies are adapted from our Quiet Time Bible Guide. The studies go through the Old and New Testaments in just over two years. The approach taken by our quiet time Bible studies does not include answers. The goal of the study is to help you dig into Scripture for yourself. You can go deeper using a commentary, Bible background guide or Bible handbook.
For more context before you begin studying, read this introduction to the book of Jeremiah.
Gripe! Gripe! Nobody likes a griper. One of the most surprising things about the Bible is that it faithfully records so many complaints against the Lord by his own people. God could have edited those protests out of the Scriptures, but he listened to them patiently and still lets us read them centuries later.
When are you most eager to complain to God, and when are you afraid to complain?
Do not be afraid to honestly tell God how you feel about something unfair, and as you pray, stay open to what he wants to show you through unfair circumstances.
