TAME YOUR TONGUE! Toby Mack sings out, “Speak life to the deadest darkest night!” I do believe in the power of words, not to get what you want, but words build up and words destroy. You can easily wound another with your words, or you can inspire them to greater things. The thing about voicing something like discontent, is that it spreads and is contagious.
The Exodus generation of Israelites were marvelous murmurers and complainers, “Then they despised the pleasant land; They did not believe His word, But complained (murmured) in their tents, And did not heed the voice of the LORD.” Psalms 106:24-25 In other Scripture, it records that they complained against Moses and Aaron, their leaders. Here it’s recorded they murmured “in their tents”. Interesting, that God even heard the people’s complaints against His leaders in the privacy of their homes. WELL there’s nothing new under the sun.
Do you understand that God does not share in your discontent? Did you know that your discontent will spread if you complain aloud? Or even on Facebook? Do you know that He HATES anything that spreads discord? If your pastor does a thing that you do not like, and it’s not unbiblical, then you need to either discuss it with that pastor or shut up. The pastor is trying hard to lead you where God wants you. God was not pleased with the people’s murmuring against Moses. You better start taking your words seriously. God does. #runyourrace
