Doesn’t it seem that some people are professional complainers? Remember the children of Israel right after they finished crossing the Red Sea in Exodus 15:22-24, and the got out into the wilderness and began complaining about not having the water they wanted. God’s people are often incredibly skilled at complaining. We read in Philippians 2:14-16 Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless children of God without fault int he midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice int he day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.” We know that complaining is an extreme but what we do not realize is that complaining naturally leads to an even more sinful expression in our hearts: bitterness. Complaining piles on the clogged stream of thinking in our lives that causes us to lose perspective and direction, which makes a bad situation worse. What is the answer to overcoming complaining. First, remember what God has done for you in the past – He is the same, and He has promised that He will always provide for us. Second, look at what we have in the present. We have so much to be grateful for every day, begin your focus on being grateful for the things that are before you and enjoy them. Finally, trust God with your future. Life in not singularly about this very moment. Life is a preparation for what is next. Enjoy what is here, and trust the Lord with what is coming.
