If Christians spent as much time praying as they do grumbling, they would soon have nothing to grumble about. -Anonymous
Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. Proverbs 1:28-31
But preacher, “I enjoy complaining!” I really believe some people LOVE to complain! They complain if it’s too hot…then ten minutes later it’s too cold. The Lord can meet all of their needs and they would still complain because they He didn’t give them something they wanted!
Sometimes I really want to say…well…what have you done about it? Have you prayed? Have you done anything to improve the situation? Have you contributed anything to improve what you’re going through? When we don’t… we are saying, “God can’t handle this problem. God doesn’t need to hear about my problems. God isn’t concerned about me.
Remember what James 4:2b-3 says,”…yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.”
You want peace in your life…ask God.
You want financial freedom…ask God.
You want joy in your life...ask God.
You want contentment in your life…ask God.
You want to be saved…ask God.
Do you get the point yet? DON’T JUST COMPLAIN...PRAY!
