WEDNESDAY 17TH JUNE, 2020
THEME: Complaint And Murmuring
PASSAGE: Exodus 3:1-22
HYMN: MHB 882- REJOICE, O land, in God thy might,
MEMORY VERSE: Exodus 3:13 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come to the children of Israel and shall say unto them The God of your fathers have sent me unto you and they say unto me What is His name? What shall I say unto them?
The period between the events of our devotional topic yesterday and that of today was around 40years. During these years, Moses was trained for the events that would take place. But unfortunately, he complained and murmured, when God finally called him to do His work of deliverance!
Many of us are like Moses and Israelites, who made 12 complaints in the wilderness. We curse our nation for our woes, even while some of such woes are self-inflicted. Complaining and murmuring make God very sad and angry with us. Whenever we complain, we are either telling God that He is not in control of our lives, or we doubt His power and ability, or He is not able or capable of taking care of us.
God can call us to do His work at any time; and when He does, He expects us to answer with all gladness. God has never sent any of His servants, without equipping him/her with all that is needed to deliver His message successfully. We often entertain fear, forgetting that, He Who sent us is always with us to see us through.
The task before every believer in Christ today is to go and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Do you have time for that? If your answer is ‘NO’, make sure as you go out today that you preach Christ with your lifestyle, utterances and actions. Do away with the spirit of fear, selfishness, ungratefulness to God. Do something for Him today to show that you appreciate Him for all His wonderful works in your family.
PRAYER: Lord, take away every spirit of complaint and murmuring from my life and help me to serve you with everything I have in Jesus’ name. Amen.
