- We all have conflicting, doubtful thoughts and feelings sometimes. They seem to come from "nowhere" at the most inconvenient or challenging times.
But to willfully, intentionally speak against God is another matter.

They spoke against God, saying, "Can God spread a table in the desert? (Psa 78:13-19 NIV)
