Don’t grieve Him by complaining. Thank Him.

“For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened” Romans 1:21, NIV.

At the root of complaining is pride that says, “God doesn’t know what He’s doing!” It is lifting ourselves up and placing our opinions about our situation above our knowledge of Him. We quickly discover how that kind of thinking gives place to the enemy and sets us up to be deeply humbled by God.

My sister, even when you feel like you have a right to complain, hold your tongue, and find something to thank God for instead. Pray for Him to put a watch over your tongue. He is going to cause everything to work together for your good, and until He does, thank Him for what He has already done in your life.

Prayer: Father God, forgive me for complaining whether out loud or in my heart. You are my God and you are worthy of my trust and my praise. You are good even when my situation doesn’t feel good. I humble myself right now and I ask that you please put a watch over my tongue. I know you will cause everything to work together for my good because that’s what you do. Thank you, Lord, for all that you are and for all you have done! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Read Psalm 141:3; Romans 8:28
