Today’s prayer points are to pray the jobs and finances of those coming to the church and for the church. Let’s pray God will bless our finances so we can continue to give into the work God has called us to do.
How easy is it for us to get annoyed and complain about the things we face?
I don’t know about you but I have a tendency to complain and get annoyed. Often it’s not even about the big things; it can be about the small things. It can be about that co-worker, about the kids, about traffic! If we want to, we can find a way to complain about any and everything.
In Exodus 16 the people of Israel are complaining to Moses and saying how they have no food. They were annoyed that they were in the wilderness with nothing to eat.
They were getting so angry and complaining that they were forgetting about the miracle that God had just done. God had just brought them out of Egypt and wiped the Egyptian army yet all they could do was complain!
Moses let them know that God would provide food but that their complaints weren’t against him but against God.
I believe one of the big reasons God doesn’t like a complaining heart is not just because of our negative attitude but when we complain, we are forgetting/negating what God has done for us. Instead of being grateful for what He has done we complain.
As we come to a close of our prayer and fasting, why don’t you create and establish a habit of thankfulness. Instead of complaining, give thanks.
The circumstance may not change, but when we have a spirit of praise and thanksgiving it opens our perspective to see what God is doing in and through us!
