Complaining can consume you if you’re not careful. All you see are the things you think are wrong; and seldom, if ever, do you see anything good.
In Psalm 77 the psalmist, because of the psalmist’s heart condition, lists for us all the things he saw as a “problem” and complained about them.
- God was a problem. I remembered God and was “troubled” (stirred up emotionally) Psalm 77:3a.
- Complaining consumed the psalmist so he couldn’t or wouldn’t sleep (verse 4).
- He complained because things weren’t like they used to be (verse 5).
- A complaining spirit can’t “find” the Lord (verse 2).
- A complaining spirit refuses to find good (verse 2).
I have a saying that goes, “I can’t hear your complaints because I’ve never heard your praises.”
As always, thanks for reading and not complaining.
What to do:
✞ Remember, if one has never heard your praises, they will in all likelihood, never hear your complaints.
