THEME: MURMURING AND COMPLAINING
“Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”
-There are certain issues that arise in the family unit, relationships, marriages, communities, schools, work place and nation that may cause conflicts among the participants. These issues may spark forth discord, complains, rage, anger, broken relationships and sometimes death. In a nation where the leaders are corrupt, it’s citizens at some point begin to feel the heat of economic depression and spark an uproar. In a relationship or marriage which is unstable, complaining takes the day. Conflict may arise from either couple but forgiveness should always win. Proverbs 21:9 reveals that, “better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife”. Peace at home is a critical element that unites the family unit together. God calls us to forgive and bear one another with love. We are also called to praise, worship and give thanks to God always. We need to ask God to purify our hearts so that we can access the realm of true worship. Once we are submitted to the Holy Spirit, He puts a new song in us so that we can worship Him in spirit and in truth. Let us believe in God’s power even as we worship, to mend every broken relationship and take away every plague and disease including corona virus.
We sing to You Lord a new song, we sing to You in all the earth. We sing to You Lord, we praise Your holy name and proclaim Your salvation day after day. We declare Your glory among the nations and Your marvelous deeds among all peoples. Great are You Lord and most worthy of praise. You alone are to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols, but only You Lord made the heavens. Splendor and majesty are before You. Strength and glory are in Your sanctuary. We ascribe to You Lord all glory and strength. We worship You Lord in the splendor of Your holiness and tremble before You in all the earth. Only You Lord reigns. Heal our hearts from every form of bitterness and unforgiveness. Heal every broken relationship and marriage dear Jesus. Heal our nation from corruption and exploitation merciful Savior. Heal every sector of our economy and bless us dear Jesus. Heal our nation from tribalism and unforgiveness. Heal us all merciful Jesus from murmuring and complaining and make every crooked path straight. All glory and praise belongs to You Jesus now and forever. Amen
