Sometimes we can find ourselves constantly complaining to God about what we are going through, why is this happening, haven’t I suffered enough, what did I do wrong, and quite frankly were not talking to God right. Yes the bible says to cast all our cares on HIM for he cares for us, and the word also says that God will perfect those things that which concerns us, so with that in mind we shouldn’t be COMPLAINING, but rejoicing, it says in James 1 ( I’m paraphrasing) rejoice when your faith is tested and your going through because you endurance has a chance to grow, so let it, because when it does, you will be lacking nothing. When we go through trials, tests, and tribulations, God doesn’t suddenly forget about us, and pretend like he doesn’t know what’s going on, JESUS knows exactly what’s happening!
Jesus said it himself that here on earth were going to have so tough times, but Jesus also said that he would be with us always, I mean he gave us his Holy Spirit, he just loaded us with everything we needed (2 peter 1) and it also says in his word that God disciplines those that he loves, and yea discipline doesn’t feel good at the time, but its all to do us good in the end, so we never forget, Man doesn’t live by bread alone, but by every word that precedes out of the mouth of God
( deut 8)
So yea…I guess I could be preaching to myself
But what I wanted to really point out was when we spend our time complaining to God, non stop, crying, being angry or upset, and confused God sees our sorrow, but he is not going to act on our behalf acting like that, I mean, JESUS IS THE CHAMP there is nothing new unto man, like the word says, and there is nothing or to no amount that you can complain to God about, WHY? Jesus paid the ULTIMATE price! He knows about sacrifice, pressure, stress, DEATH he has been through it ALL he died a sinners death, when he was Innocent!
Sometimes we can even complain about all the things we’ve had to sacrifice and how nobody understands, how we are all alone, but how wrong are we…
The things that we go through can NEVER COMPARE to what our Father had to experience, but had the victory over ULTIMATELY, so when we complain we literally are preaching to the preacher because he has been through it all. So I know for me when I complain and cry to God about some of my issues I start feeling petty because to God that’s nothing and it is nothing to him for him to bring us out, if we would trust him, and praise him.
So we have to look to the champ, our Father, JESUS just thinking and meditating on what God through, constantly confessing his word over our lives, and situations, GOD will bring us through.
God’s Discipline Proves His Love
12 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. 2 We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith.[a] Because of the joy[b] awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.
