Grumbling & disputing disrupts the flow:
We must come to place where we are able to listen and speak the language of Christ. The Spirit spoken through us will never start a fight.
It will confront, but not divide. This Church age must confront without dividing. We’re looking to be the light, we’re to be tasteful as salt. The word teaches us:
Do all things without grumbling or disputing; so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world.
In everything we do we are to be seen blameless before a crooked and perverse generation! Imagine if the church was able to gather a Nation of filth, and through prayer, and faith we birthed a Nation of righteousness? It starts in our inner chambers!
Within ourselves, within our homes, within our relationships, within our work place, within our financial circumstances, within our marriages, within our Ministries, within our lives!
1 Corinthians 10:10 Nor grumble, as some of them did, and were destroyed by the destroyer.
The Enemy is seeking to sift us, like he did for Peter to deny Christ. A simply grumble hinders the Spirit of gratitude, appreciation, love, humility, servanthood. We are the image of God. Christ shows us he is the image of the Invisible God! He can as a servant, did he grumble about dying for us? Did he dispute with Peter about who he was? Did he grumble against the disciples when they didn’t understand?
Turn it around: Take a moment alone, or with as many as you can and look into your life. I believe the Lord is looking for the grumblers to become proclaimers of His word and Kingdom. Take a moment to find gratitude, write a list, write a letter to God and share what you find as a grievous to you. Ask Him to TURN IT AROUND! He will change the perspective, that we may personally believe and perceive the blessing in the grievances.
*They are opportunities to proclaim His goodness
*They are moments to crucify our flesh and silence the enemy with scripture and faithful sacrifice.
Lord God, we ask that you release through this word a Anointing to TURN IT AROUND! A grace that gets us to a point of proclaiming your word! We want to live on your bread! Your word is for our spiritual use in times of worldly circumstances! Jesus forgive us for grumbling and dividing the homes, churches, cities, and this Nation. Make us proclaimers of your word over grumbling! Let us be blameless in your sight Lord God! In Jesus Name, Amen
