Moses was asking GOD, "why have YOU put me with people who "ARE CONSTANTLY COMPLAINING". (Numbers 11:11). Moses became so frustrated that he spoke unadvisedly; he said things that were not of the SPIRIT. "Complaining displeases the LORD" (Numbers 11:1). Are we the VICTIM of "MIXT MULTITUDE"; where we speak from the SPIRIT one moment, and from the FLESH the next moment? COMPLAINING destroys our SOULS, SEPARATES US FROM GOD, affects THOSE AROUND US and brings GOD'S DISPLEASURE on our own lives. Do we not appreciate GOD'S Blessings because they never seem good enough or we are on to our "next complaint"? DO WE ALLOW OUR SPIRIT TO BECOME AGITATED, EVEN UNGRATEFUL, BY SOMEONE ELSE'S BEHAVIOR? DON'T LOSE AWARENESS OF WHO IS IN CONTROL; HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT. We may not be able to stop other people's COMPLAINING; BUT WE CAN CHOOSE HOW WE ARE GOING TO RESPOND; IN THE FLESH, OR IN THE SPIRIT.
