Grumble, Grumble, Grumble – Part 5
As leaders and disciples of God, we are commanded to do all things without complaining and disputing. In this series, we are going to look at different instances in Scripture where complaining caused major problems for the people of God. It is vital that we practice thankfulness as believers, being thankful and resisting complaining keeps our relationship with the Lord fervent and our faith strong and active.
Complaining people have taken their eyes off of Christ, thankful people keep their eyes on the Word so they are excited about God delivering them in every trial of life.
Philippians 2:14 Do all things (daily, whole) without complaining and disputing, NKJV
Part 5 – Everything that happened to the Israelites was written down for our admonition, in other words, it was written by way of example to us. If we desire to avoid the fate of the Israelites in the desert then we must avoid the disobedience they demonstrated. The good news is God has provided grace to overcome what destroyed the Israelites. With every temptation, there is a way of escape, by way of the Word of God and Holy Spirit leading.
