Complaining or Obtaining?
In current societal trends and epochs, multiple elements prove disturbing regarding that which is congruent with traditional thought. Was the war in Iraq a necessity and was the motive authentic? Internationally oil prices have skyrocketed, placing gas prices on a trajectory never once imagined. During the most previous winter seasons, scores of reports filled newspapers and television news reports regarding flooding. However, now that summer is near, water rationing reports and threats of fines for an over-consumption/use of water fills the air. In essence what is happening within the world? In such times an increased level of faith is mandatory. There can be a complaining or faith time for obtaining. God promises to provide all of his elect with everything need in conjunction with God being prioritized and number one.
In reference to how God dealt with Israel, He told them to possess the land. God has a blessing for you in times of crisis, but in faith you must claim it. Will you complain or obtain? God said “Turn you, and take your journey, and go to the mount of the Amorites, and unto all the places nigh thereunto, in the plain, in the hills, and in the vale, and in the south, and by the sea side, to the land of the Canaanites, and unto Lebanon, unto the great river, the river Euphrates. 8Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them” (Deuteronomy 1:7-8).
The man who was disabled for 38 years, although eventually healed by Christ, complained about his condition as opposed to taking aggressive steps to find healthful resolutions to his condition. “And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years. 6When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole? 7The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me. 8Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk” (John 5:5-8). Again, in tremendous times of downward spiral and financial crisis, will you complain or obtain through knowing who you are and what God has promised? Remember, you are the clay In The Potter’s Hands. God has paved a way to save you today!
