Whiners weary God. Malachi 2:17 says, “You have wearied the Lord with your words. ‘Wearied him?’ you ask. ‘How have we wearied him?’ You have wearied him by suggesting that the Lord favors evildoers since he does not punish them. You have wearied him by asking, ‘Where is the God of justice?’
Are you ranked with the whiners? Do you try to figure everything out, to fix things that weren’t meant for you to fix, then when you’ve made a royal mess of it, ask God to fix it? Have you told God, ‘I have this and don’t need you!’, until you do? Only for the desperate things, the things that need a miracle.
Trust is built in relationships, getting to know someone, spending time with them, talking and laughing together. It’s no different with God. It’s like talking to a friend on the phone; you can’t see them but you talk just the same. You must know God with your spirit, because He is Spirit and those who worship Him must do so with their spirits.
Listening is just as important. Learn to tune into His voice. I did this by reading the Psalms, learning how important His voice was for David, made it equally important for me. I would go for walks into quiet, sometimes remote places, let my mind go still (which is a literal miracle!), share my heart with Him and wait to hear Him speak to me. I found that He’s never quiet to those who want to know Him. After all, He said if I seek Him I will find Him if I seek Him with my whole heart.
Jeremiah 33:3; Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.
I will trust in You, Holy and Mighty God. You are my steadfast friend, the first I run to in time of trouble. I know I can count on You for You have never let me down. Your plans are bigger then mine. So big that I am dumbfounded when You show me a glimpse. When I stand before You, I’m aware of how small I am and how big You are. I’m in awe of the way You love and care for me. Everything I would ever need in this life, You have given it to me and continue to show me how to use it to be victorious. I love You Lord and I give You praise this day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
