Can we argue with God?

“How then can I dispute with him?
    How can I find words to argue with him?
Though I were innocent, I could not answer him;
I could only plead with my Judge for mercy.
Even if I summoned him and he responded,
I do not believe he would give me a hearing.” Job 9:14-16
            You can argue with God but what good will it do? 
Will you win the argument?  No.
            Will you feel better after the argument like a form of therapy?  Maybe.
            Will it distance you from God, saying things you regret?  Maybe.
            Will it make you feel superior to God, like you can demand things from Him?  Quite possibly.
            All these possibilities make arguing with God dangerous.  Accepting His will by faith is always best then waiting patiently to see His power played out and His wisdom revealed.
