When we complain


In Numbers chapter 11 it speaks about how the people complained about everything. When the people complained it displeased the Lord  so much that when He heard their complaining His anger was aroused, so the fire of the Lord burned among them and consumed some in the outskirts of the camp, than the people cried out to Moses and when Moses prayed to the Lord, the fire was quenched.

mans heartAnd so here we are 2000 years later way beyond Moses day and yet we too complain to God about every little thing. It’s as if we too just aren’t pleased with what Jesus does in our lives. The Lord still becomes displeased when His children complain and I do believe that God sends fire down from heaven to burn around our outskirts in today’s world.  God will allow life to bring us to our knees so we will stop the complaining and start being thankful and grateful for what God has already done.

When you complain you can’t hear God’s voice? When you complain you can’t discern? When you complain you have no faith or trust in God? Complaining is like a viper snake ready to suck the life out of you till it drains you completely dry.

I read this story many of times but this time it stopped me right in my tracks.

How can you live like a Christian if you spend too much time complaining?

  1. The subject about complaining, what a lesson that I have learnt! I have been stumbled upon complaining in many things in my life as a habit. Living as a repentant life, I still have it but it is reducing it. I regret after complaining because when I see things that are more worse, I should be thankful. We should be thankful for the blessings we have from GOD. Every blessing. It is a blessing to wake up for a brand new day. A blessing to have the chance to sleep. A blessing to have every breathe that we take. A blessing to walk, talk, see, hear, function all normally. I think it is my pride, but now I hate pride. As a follower of CHRIST, I must hate evils and sins. I believe humbling down oneself completely would reduce such thing. When I experience pain and suffering, I thought of the blessings that I have and it really made me be glad for what I have in my life more and more. I thank GOD for everything. I need to learn to thank for everything, even the smallest thing to things that seem negative by sight. I can be an overcomer through CHRIST, and even I fall 7 times, I know I will pick myself back up.
