Replace Complaining With Praise!

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Today I want you to try something I believe will bless your life.  I want you to try avoiding the opportunities to complain.  Whatever the matter may be, I want you to try your best to praise God in stead of complaining.  Many times in our lives complaining is so easy to do.  There are times when people will get on our last nerve.  There are times when you feel as if someone is attempting to take advantage of you.  There are times when you feel an injustice is taking place … especially on your job.  The devil makes complaining about things such an easy tool to use.  With no second thought we open our mouth and lash out.  Do you realize the complaining we do is really our way of telling God ‘I do not believe you can change things?’  Think about the things you complain about, I guarantee God can change it.

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, Replace Complaining With Praise!  You must understand God will do one of two things during the times when you feel everything and everyone is demanding.  He will either change you in the situation or change the situation for you.  While many people would love Him to do the latter, truthfully God normally does the former.  The Bible declares in Philippians 2:14 - Do all things without murmurings and disputings:  God knows what He has placed within each one of us.  He also knows what it will take to get His investment out of us.  Many of us respond better to conflicts and overwhelming situations.  During these times our anointing shines.  Do you realize your fellow co-workers love to stand around the coffee pot and complain about everything and everyone.  Even some Christians are involved and at times their leading the coversations.

My brother, my sister, Replace Complaining With Praise!  God receives no glory when His children are engaged in conversations full of complaining.  When you are complaining about your job, do you ever stop to think how many people would love to be employed?  When you are complaining about your children, do you ever stop to think how many people woule love to be able to have children?  Yes people bother you, BUT you also bother people.  The Bible declares in Jude 1:16 - These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage.  Beloved, stop filling God’s ears with complaining and start filling them with praise.  Praise causes God to respond faster than any complaints … try it and see for yourself.  Prayer for Today: Father, help me to praise You when I desire to complain.  In the name of Jesus … Amen! 

Scripture Reading for Today: Psalms 110:1
