This day in prayer and meditation in God’s Word I have located the thief that has been stealing my blessing (our blessing).
A foul spirit of complaining, the majority of which occurs through our mouths!
Know assuredly they who murmur against the Lord shall be swiftly punished and demoted from their heavenly calling, being brought down to menial labor and servitude (see Joshua 9:18-21).
The curse of hard labor came upon the murmurers because they refused to believe and continually complained (Joshua 9:22-23).
If you want to murmur and complain against your spouse and the Lord, I assure you your life will only get worse because God does not bless complainers. In fact God makes complainers lives more hard and difficult, doing unto them according to their words (Numbers 14:28).
So that being said, I urge you to leave your complaints. I don’t want them in my house, my heart, nor do I want them to fill my ears. I’m going forward into the promised land. Enter into such joy of the Lord with me, but your heart must change .
The choice is yours!
Choose this day whom you will serve – God, yourself, or the devil.
“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live.” (Deuteronomy 30:19).
If you choose to be blessed, no complaining will be tolerated. So if you want to keep your bitterness and complaining, stay with the devil and don’t profess to be a Christian.
If you want to cleanse your heart, be holy, and be happy – you shall be free to live the abundant life in Christ and be fully received and celebrated by God.
However there shall be no more complaining. From this day forward men must put their foot down. Husbands tell your wivews, if you are going to live in my house, dwell under my roof, eat my food, use my AC, drive my car, use my gas……no more complaining, no more bad attitude, no more stinking thinking, no more whining, no more cursing me with a foul tongue. No more! No more! No more!
Fall on your knees and get your heart right before God or don’t come home.
Tell your wife and kids you love them, but in loving them you have an obligation to speak the truth to them and demand the best of them (yourself too).
Your best friends bring out the best in you! Hence I am your best friend. I don’t flatter you, I apply pressure to bring out the best in you. If you want to stay low and be miserable the rest of your life, stay there and find some miserable comforters. Misery loves company.
If however you want to be a true man or woman with honor and integrity, cleanse your heart and come home. Fall on your knees and call upon the Lord to fix, renew, and give you newness of life.
You are loved unconditionally, but you are being challenged to grow into manhood and womanhood.
“I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13).
“Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report; if there by any virtue, any praise, think on these things…..and the God of peace shall be with you.” (Philippians 4:4-9)
God is challenging you to be empowered, be equipped, be renewed, and be your best.
Only as you humble yourself and rid your heart of arrogance will you be blessed.
All my love accompanied with truth to set the captives free!
If there is one wish I have for you, it is that you find peace. The remedy and prescription is stated above.
