The Lord is so wonderful and knows the heart of every man. He detest complaining and murmuring because He will be angry at the end of the matter. When we murmur we make God uncomfortable, incompetent, irresponsible and this provokes His temperament. The action of the Israelite is a case study we will look into this day and the reaction of God towards.
"The people began to complain to the Lord about their troubles. When the Lord heard them, he became angry and sent fire on the people. It burned among them and destroyed one end of the camp. 2 The people cried out to Moses for help; he prayed to the Lord, and the fire died down. 3 So the place was named Taberah, because there the fire of the Lord burned among them.
4 There were foreigners traveling with the Israelites. They had a strong craving for meat, and even the Israelites themselves began to complain: “If only we could have some meat! 5 In Egypt we used to eat all the fish we wanted, and it cost us nothing. Remember the cucumbers, the watermelons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic we had? 6 But now our strength is gone. There is nothing at all to eat—nothing but this manna day after day!”
(7 Manna was like small seeds, whitish yellow in color. 8-9 It fell on the camp at night along with the dew. The next morning the people would go around and gather it, grind it or pound it into flour, and then boil it and make it into flat cakes. It tasted like bread baked with olive oil.)
10 Moses heard all the people complaining as they stood around in groups at the entrances of their tents. He was distressed because the Lord had become angry with them" Numbers 11:1-10 (GNB)
I pray the Lord will not destroy us in Jerusalem name. Amen. We need not complain against the Lord rather express our mind and place our sincere grievance to Him. By that doing He will make us happy thereafter. No wonder the writer of the letter to the Hebrews said God attend to the diligence not complainers. "But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him." Hebrews 11:6 (NKJV)
Brethren let us be like the diligent seekers and avoid complains for it will not do us any good at all. Thank God it is Friday the beginning of the weekend. Good morning.
