Numbers 14:2 And all the children of Israel murmured.
What is all the fuss about amongst the believing Church?
Is it because they have been slaves for to long, or because they don’t have a place to call their own?
Why do people in the Body of Christ complain and talk amongst themselves today?
What is their issues that they can not seem to get over?
There are so many topics we could generate and discuss that have plagued the Church that go against what we have been taught and the doctrine established by Scripture.
So, if we ever had a legitimate complaint on a particular subject, we would have a good amount of choices to murmur over.
What happens to the Children of Israel, is that they complain and murmur about how they were saved and delivered.
They find a reason to be dissatisfied with the way the Lord provides their release and where they have to go and how long it takes to get there.
You know the standard road travel, salvational stuff that most average folk have tango through after being enslaved for a long period of time.
We have to be very careful with how we are grateful to God for His provision. We don’t ever want to come off ungrateful and disappointed.
God does not owe is salvation, we actually owe Him thankfulness and appreciation for being the Great and Terrible Creator that He is.
Not because He is mean and desires our worship, but because He can be mean and He deserve to be honored and worshipped by allegorical have been given His breath.
All He wants is to be involved in the lives of His Creation each and everyday that we wake up to start out on our journey. Give God the praise and don’t be ashamed. That is a song of ours from 1983 that we used to sing in the Upper Room Prayer Temple Youth Choir.
If we are ashamed to represent the Maker Down here, then He the Savior will not be our advocate before the terrible and Mighty Judge of us all.
We need to stop being a people full of dissatisfaction and be appreciative of what we have been given. It could be much worse than it seems to be now.
Thank the Lord that most of the Family of Christ doesn’t have to fight for their lives because of their faith. Many of the believing brotherhood have to do this each day of their lives.
Our murmurs and complaints may not be the same as those in smaller locations around the world, or like those in our communities as well, but the warning here is that we do not fill our mouths with complaining and low conversation of disapproval of God’s plan.
We need to fill our mouths with genuine praise and worship to the King of kings for the mighty acts of greatness towards us that He has done. If He had not set us free, where would you be with all of that complaining and murmuring?
