1 Corinthians 10
Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.
MURMURERS HAVE NO FUTURE IN THE KINGDOM of God and generally in life.
The life of a murmurer is hard, bitter, and extremely difficult.
In our text today, we are instructed not to murmur as others did; and the consequence of their murmuring is that they were destroyed by the destroyer.
It shows that when people murmur, they open themselves up to the destroyer.
This is a very serious matter.
God hates murmuring. And murmuring opens people up to the destroyer.
Murmuring is ingratitude gone to seed. It means there is nothing to be grateful for.
Instead of murmuring, choose gratitude. Choose to be a grateful person. Find the things that will cause you to be grateful.
Gratitude is an amazing force that can turn failure to success; it can turn defeat to victory.
God wants us to be grateful in life. He wants us to be thankful for the opportunities, and privileges that we have.
I noticed that God is very disappointed when we don’t give thanks, when we are not grateful.
When our Lord Jesus healed the ten lepers in the Book of Luke, only one came to give thanks.
When the Master saw only one person come to give thanks, Jesus answering said, “Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.”
Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine?
That signifies He was expecting all of them to come back and thank Him!
Make a decision to confront life as a grateful person.
Gratitude is a choice, make that decision today to always be grateful not only to God, but also to every one that crosses you path.
Gratitude will put you over, and bring restoration into your life. Be grateful!
To the ends of the earth!
God bless you richly with great grace and many blessings!
