While we all hate to hear a complainer to often we love to complain! The idea of “poor me” is too often on our lips. What can we do about it? Today’s devotional will reveal the solution. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
I Corinthians 10:10 (ESV)
nor grumble, as some of them did and were destroyed by the Destroyer.
“Suppose a farmer grumbles against God because the wheat is spoiling; does his grumbling save it? Suppose a tradesman begins quarrelling with God because business is dull; he will not bring one more customer to his shop by all his complaining. No; there is no good in grumbling, and no use in complaining; the very best thing that you can do for yourself is just to come back, and rest in God, and say, ‘It is the Lord; let him do what seemeth him good. I have done, all I can that was right for me to do; but; I know that it is vain for me to rise up early, and sit up late, and eat the bread of carefulness, unless he is pleased to send the increase. So I leave it all with him. I will not fret and worry any longer; I cannot improve matters if I do, so I will just leave everything in the Lord’s hands.’” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XLVII, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1901), p. 607-608]
