As Moses brought the Children of Israel out of the land that had them in bondage (Egypt) for years within a couple of days they began to complain. They began to complain that Moses brought them out in the wilderness to die; they began to complain about the food, they began to complain about having a lack of meat, they began to complain about a lack of water, but in every instance God provided.
However, the complaining angered God to the degree that He told Moses that “the complaining displeased the Lord: and the Lord heard it; and his anger was kindled: and the fire of the Lord burned among them and consumed them that were in the uttermost part of the camp (Numbers 11:1).
Thus, God doesn’t like complaining, and if you are in Christ and Christ is in you for real, you have nothing to complain about. If you have a good measure of life, health and strength, and in your right mind with the activities of your limbs you have a very good chance to be victorious in America with Christ as your head. Are you one of those that spend most of your day complaining about others or your own lot in life? If that’s you God is not pleased with the spirit of complaining that dominates your life.
We can all find something to complain about, however, if we are Christians God doesn’t expect us to complain, He expects us to pray. In fact, (Phil 4:6) tells us “To be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” A heart that’s prayerful and thankful to God will be a heart with minimal complaining.
God Bless You
