The Bible says pride comes before a fall. I sometimes catch myself praying for direction and then when my prayers are answered I don’t give the Father the praise He deserves. Some may think it wasn’t God I did that on my own, and my question to them would be, He gave His very life after living in paradise and came to the earth with all the pain, sickness, hurt, and pain. Why is it so hard for His children to be grateful.
How can we possibly not thank Him if we truly believe. We should thank Him even when things aren’t going our way. The sad truth is most Christians don’t even when things are going great. One of my favorite Bible stories is when Paul and Silas were in prison they praised the Lord and the chains broke.
I don’t want to be the one to miss my blessing because I was complaining. I have been going through it this week, and this word was for me too. I wasn’t going to post about it but all day I felt like the Lord wanted me to say it. I love you all and am not bashing anyone just encouraging you if you believe in Him praise Him for the things your believing Ge will do before He does it.
The book of James compares the mouth and tongue as the rudder of the ship it controls where each person life is headed. So complain if you want too but I would not recommend it.
