Why has complaining become so natural and acceptable today even among Christians? Believers are to be people of hope and grace born in the love and security of our Almighty Father where complaining shows an attitude of “in over our heads” and a spirit of hopelessness. What kind of testimony is that for a child of God? Although it is true that we all struggle sometimes with complaining we need to remind ourselves that it never pleases God.

Numbers 11:1-3 “And when the people complained, it displeased
the LORD: …& the fire of the LORD burnt among them, & consumed them…”

I believe that either the fire of God’s judgment or the consuming bitterness of a complaining spirit will consume a consistently complaining Believer. It is time we learn to trust God and live in hope.
