In Job 7:2, Job was expressing his displeasure concerning the fact that he could not die on the spot. He didn’t want to continue to live in his current state… This thought process shows a complete lack of faith in God, and a complete lack of understanding concerning His true nature. When we wish to die to get away from our problems, it shows that we don’t believe God can change things and restore our joy. In fact, the real issue is that we must renew our own mind before we will see positive change take place in our circumstances… Our best days can always be ahead.
