S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
The rabble with them began to crave other food, and again the Israelites started wailing and said, “If only we had meat to eat!”
This is the story of a small group of people (rabble) amongst the Israelites, stirring them all up to complain about not having any meat to eat. They were in the wilderness and forgot what God had taken them out of. Instead of being in a continual posture of thanksgiving, they reverted to their historical pattern of complaining. Let’s fast forward to the present. It is time to ask ourselves, “Are We Always Not Happy?”
I’m forever thinking about how very blessed my family, and I are. Like everyone else, we’ve been through our share of tough times. Yet I would be quick to say that our difficulties could never equal the challenges many of our fellow believers around the globe have had to endure to follow Jesus. Even knowing this and reminding myself how blessed we are, I am still tempted to complain. I can understand homeless people and their unhappiness, but how can we who have been blessed and delivered from our yoke of bondage through the cross of Christ ever be UNHAPPY? Yes, God gave the Israeli people meat to eat, but then it was something else! For my household and me, we’ve decided to leave unhappiness and ungratefulness behind and live with hearts of THANKSGIVING. I hope you join us.
This AM, once again, I want to say a huge THANK YOU for saving me and giving me life to the full. With Your help, I won’t forget! Amen
