Murmur Ye Not

grenepages_Femi Sobayo TREASURES-IN-JAR OF CLAY_Murmur Ye NotOne of the most fundamental differences between those of us in Christ and the rest of the world is our VOCABULARIES. Our words are expected by God to reflect his will and not just the terrible things happening around us. Now that the economists say there is recession, some Christians are also being tempted to see and speak recession into our lives. What are you saying?
When men are cast down, then …in our own vocabulary, we will say there is a lifting up. (Job 22:29)
When men shall say they are sick, the weak in our beloved kingdom shall say they are strong. (Joel 3:10)
Until we get to that stage where we declare God's will always and not just what happens to the world economy, understanding that our sufficiency is in God, we will not glorify God in our words.
The Just Shall Speak by Faith
'There is depression'. 'This country is too rough and tough'. 'Oh Goodness! What's left of our currency now?' 'This job shaaa, I don't just want to say I hate it'. 'This economy is melting'. 'My wife can talk too much'. On and on. complaints! Murmurings!
Unfortunately, many Christians are professional complainers and murmurers. On the job, at home and in the church of God, we join or create a group of grumblers, murmurers and complainers. The job does not pay well, the pastor does not speak with much fire, the economy is terrible etc. To them, there is something bad in everything.
How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me. Numbers 14:27 WEB
Murmuring is a very creepy thing. It does not have to be directly against God, it can be done indirectly. When you murmur against the job he gave you, the wife he blessed you with or the economy in which he intends to make you thrive, you are murmuring against him.
Murmuring is a sly bug that bites even before you notice its presence. It appears like an innocent expression of feeling, yet it kills faith and throws tantrums at God.
The Dangers of Murmuring
1. Murmuring is a sign of lack of Faith in God. If my daughter trusts me enough that I am all out for her, she will just rest in my work and allow me hold her hands.

2. It is a waste of spiritual energy.

3. It is a grievous sin before God. It shows that you quickly forget what God has done in the past.

4. It avails Satan a chance to creep in with suggestions.

5. It is purely rude to God.

For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. Do all things without murmurings and disputings: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; Philippians 2:13-15 WEB
