Have you struggled with COMPLAINING???
Here's the conclusion of this message:
Conclusion: What you DECLARE You ESTABLISH!
If you declare a thing, confess it continually, it will be established for you. Job 22:28, 29 (NKJV) 28 You will also declare a thing, And it will be established FOR YOU; So light will shine on your ways. 29 When they cast you down, and you say, 'Exaltation will come!' Then He will save the humble person.
If you want a different outcome begin by making a different confession. Instead of GRUMBLING & COMPLAINING begin to GIVE THANKS!!! Establish that you will SPEAK words of THANKS GIVING!!!
1 Thessalonians 5:18 (MSG) 18 thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live.
(CEV) Whatever happens, keep thanking God because of Jesus Christ. This is what God wants you to do.
(NLT) Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
(AMP) Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will].
Also: Ephesians 4:29 (NIV) Do not let (ALLOW) any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
Let’s not be GRUMBLES & COMPLAINERS but rather REMEMBER the WORD!!!
Remember our CHURCH VERSE for Word of Life??? This is where our NAME comes from: Philippians 2:14-16 (NKJV) 14 Do all things without complaining and disputing (complaining & arguing – NLT; grumbling & faultfinding & complaining -AMP), 15 that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world (shining like bright lights –NLT), 16 holding fast the word of life (hold firmly to the word of life –GW pay attention to, hold forth – Strong’s; to hold upon or APPLY – Vincent’s), so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.
Be blessed today and DON'T COMPLAIN!!!
