Numbers 11:1 And when the people complained, it displeased the LORD: and the LORD heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of the LORD burnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp.
When the people complained it displeased the Lord. They weren’t satisfied with what God was doing in their lives. They wanted something different. They thought they knew more than He did.
He has just convicted me. I have a great life. I do not need Him to do anything else than He has already done. I shouldn’t be complaining. I shouldn’t be trying not to brag on how good things are. They are good because He is at work in me.
I thought just now of how I always want to preface the good things are happening with how I want more of something. That is a form of complaining. I thought of how I keep wishing for just a little more rather than constantly being grateful.
God forgive me for not rejoicing in everything that you are doing and have done. Help me to not preface my praise with any doubt but to just rejoice in all that you are doing!
