Job felt disappointed because nothing happen and his situation was not turn around after crying out to God for so long. Matthew 7:7 says ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. Whenever you have problem, you should surrender it to God and let him help you. You can talk to the Holy Spirit and ask him to give you guidance on how to solve the problem. In John 16:23, and in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
