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?’
I can’t stand listening to whiners. Sometimes Walt will do it because he knows how much I hate it. Anytime my grandkids would whine, my daughter would say, “Whiners don’t get crap!” I must have raised her right!
When I think of whining in the Bible, I always think of the children of Israel and their time in the wilderness. Even God grew weary of it and wanted to kill them all and start over again.
If they only knew that God was simply trying to show them what real relationship with Him looked like. He was trying to build trust.
When you truly trust someone, you know there are reasons beyond your understanding. When you trust, you realize you just don’t have Gods perspective on things. When you trust, you know He cannot lie! His Word doesn’t come back void!
It’s just a matter of time. The Lord ALWAYS has our best interest in mind. When you trust, you also learn to listen, correct your path, press on. Nothing can separate you from the LOVE of God or make you believe He is not a good and faithful God.
So today, stop whining about things you can’t control and place your hand in His, trusting Him to take you safely to the place He’s prepared for you.
