People usually think if they pray and do not get answers,they can guilt God to answer them by complaining against Him.
Even if your answer was just about to be released,it will be postponed because of complaining.
It’s how satan steals your answers because he knows God’s nature.
The Israelites tested God by continually murmuring against Him despite how good He was to them.
When the next trial came they quickly forgot how good He had been to them despite all the miracles He had done for them.
They bitterly complained against the Lord as though He was never good to them.
Despite how good He was to them they were quick to forget His goodness and murmured against Him.
Despite parting the red Sea,plaguing the land of Egypt,they still murmured against Him just because of food,as though God could not or was unwilling to give them food.
When He gave them manna,they still complained that the Lord should have left them in Egypt because they wanted meat.
They couldn’t think and remember that the same God who parted the sea for them could provide them with meat if they believe, instead they tested the Lord continually by murmuring against Him, disregarding His goodness.
God gave them the meat so that they can see that this too was possible for God to do, but He struck them with death while the meat was still in their mouths and they could not enjoy God’s blessing.
Nothing God could do for them could make them trust Him.
As a result,they didn’t enter the land they were promised,God struck them in the wilderness.
It shows you how complaining against the Lord is serious.
Do not think you can speed up answers by complaining against God.
Your answers will be postponed.
Your prayers will only get answered if you have faith.
When you pray believe that you receive what you ask for and you will have it.
Complaining is lack of faith,you will keep going round in circles till you learn to have faith even when things are hard.
If you are praying and want to receive,do not complain against God even in your heart.
Remember His goodness to you and know He hasn’t changed and is able to answer you again,you will receive.
If you have been complaining against the Lord,you must repent of that and start trusting Him no matter the situation.
Pray in faith and you will receive.
You must know that when you complain against the Lord, making it seem as though God is bad and unfair despite all the goodness He has shown you, even giving His only Son to die for sins which He did not commit but you commited,yet you make it seem like God is bad just because your answer has delayed,yet the reason your answer delayed is your lack of faith,then know that your complaints are proof of lack of faith in God’s goodness and that is why you cannot receive.
Your answer is postponed when you complain.
That’s why you cannot receive.
1 John 5:14-15
“Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.”
1 Corinthians 10:10-11,13
“nor complain, as some of them also complained, and were destroyed by the destroyer.
Now all these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.
No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.”
