Do you bless or complain?
Are you constantly complaining? Are others mistreating you? Disrespecting you? Are you always the victim? Guess what! This means that YOU are separated from God! When we show our thankfulness for what we have been given and bless those who curse you (See Luke 6:26) and honor our mother and father and brother and sister we show God we love Him and all that he has done for us.
Remember the elders of the Israelites complained to Moses about almost all the blessings they received and also refused to believe that they could enter into the promised land and God forbade them to enter and they wandered in the wilderness for forty years and never entered the promised land - only the youth who believed in the promise entered.
A healthy body of Christ bestows blessings and honor to one another. They are not jealous, revengeful or deceiptful. They lift one another up and pray for the health of each other, and care for others. We rejoice in others victories and successes.
"If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it."
(1 Corinthians 12).
Here is a handy break down of how the Israelites complained and the results of their complaining.
Here is a helpful prayer that will break you free from the chains of satan and his lies and deception.
Lord Jesus I come before you and ask that you cleanse me from all unrighteousness. I see the bonds of satan upon me, and I repent of agreeing, whether knowingly or unknowingly with this victim spirit. I pray that by the power of your name, and through your blood, that I break free from the lies and deception that I am abused, or not honored/respected, or that I'm not loved, or have value. I break free from the lies that interpret my reality, and agree with your truths. I agree that I am not a victim, that I do have a choice to be thankful and joyful under all circumstances. I agree that nothing can separate me from the love you pour out on me. I agree that I am blessed, and I will bless others with love, grace, and kindness, even when they mistreet me. I seal these truths in me as divine truths from you. Thank you Jesus for loving and caring for me and may I learn your ways, and do the same to others. Amen.
