The Monday Message 6/24/13 "Grumble vs. Humble"

Transcript of today's Message to be posted later!'s my Birthday! ....Off to enjoy some Birthday fun!


Grumble or humble! Both cant occupy the same space at the same time. today's discussion is about the spirit of humility and the grateful heart and it's also about discerning and avoiding the (grumbling heart), the complainer, the negative Nelly! No offense to any nellies out there!

By no means am I talking about situations where you have to speak up or aggressively pursue your objective. I’m talking about when your efforts have all failed. Also, there are some who's attitude is unbalanced, no fairground for the tolerable, never seeing the bounty, the blessing or the disguise!
When a situation or objective begins to appear challenged, right away this is a signal from The Lord that intervention from above is required.

Here are some steps to APPLY.
1. Pray to The Lord, establish in your heart and mind that He has ultimate knowledge of the outcome, the purpose and the path. Turn it over to Him and get out of the way.

2. Express to God and man, Your need. Simple is best. Example. “God, I need You to make a way where no way seems possible; This organization requires several hundreds of thousands of dollars in order to serve Your people!" ... If man can be about The Fathers much more so is the Father himself?! We also know from scripture we are His concern! And Man, as we express our need, God can press into others to Give.

3. Remember that sometimes, God, like a parent will often wait to see if our request is a need or a want. Often we think we know what we want and then quickly discover some unforeseen aspect that ruins it all. We have to Trust that Gods timing is just as important as the many details that have to be taken into account.

4. God promotes from the bottom. Those who have a servants heart are in perfect position to receive Gods favor. They never see it coming because they are so focused on Doing. If you want to be great, get good at being small, be mindful even when no ones paying attention. God is!

5. Do your best to NOT give added tangibility to the negative circumstances that seeming to prohibit your progress. If you have to share your plight, find a way of doing so where you create an opportunity for a turn around. Example: Although it doesn't seem possible for the funds to arrive, we know that God is the Great I am, if He wants the objective to be met, it will be met in some amazing way we hadn't thought of!" 

Take care of what's been given to you. More than anything, God like a parent oversees our attitude of gratitude. Are we thankful for the many blessings that are abundant? Are we responsible and respectful toward those thing that have been entrusted to us?!

Grumblers are typically complainers. They find something negative to say about everything. Nothing is to their liking. They are usually selfish, unaware, unconcerned with others needs, only their own! They usually complain to those who can not help, which is unprofitable and can border on manipulation, the poor me pity party pooper)
Yeah Don't be that guy!

So, we see God has a purpose and a plan for everything, every moment of our existence, every challenge, setback, trial & hardship. As well, every victory, summit, triumph & success all work together to shape & mold us, to teach and train, to encourage and correct!

Have a great week and remember this....”If it doesn't come your way, have you stopped to pray?...Be careful what you think, do and say, because God can and just may!”

JOHN 21:25
And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.

Matthew 6;25 
Do Not Worry

25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?

28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble
