Are You A Complainer?

Proverbs 23:29 Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has contentions? Who has complaints? Who has wounds without cause? Who has redness of eyes?

Have you lost heart, become unhappy and are displeased with your circumstances to the point of constant complaining?

Our instructions are to...

Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always...

Therefore...


Psalms 32:11 Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous; And shout for joy, all you upright inheart!

1 Chronicles 16:10 ...Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the Lord!

Proverbs 15:13
A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance, But by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken...

Luke 18:1 ...men always ought to pray and not lose heart...

Therefore...

James 5:8 Establish your hearts...

Colossians 3:15 ...and be thankful.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 ...in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Next time you start to lose heart and begin to complain...

1 Corinthians 10:10 (Do Not) complain...

Instead say...

Habakkuk 3:17-19 Though the fig tree may not blossom, Nor fruit be on the vines; Though the laborof the olive may fail, And the fields yield no food; Though the flock may be cut off from the fold,And there be no herd in the stalls— Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer’s feet, And He will make me walk on my high hills.

Remember...


Philippians 2:14-15 Do all things without complaining... that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world...

Take the Hebrew people for example...

Numbers 11:1 ...when the people complained, it displeased the Lord...

Psalms 78:41 Yes, again and again they tempted God, And limited the Holy One of Israel.

Those of us who have been redeemed and set free from sin have much to be thankful for!

Have you been limiting God?
