You are welcome to the Month of June, the last month of the first half of the year, 2023. Having seen the Faithfulness of God from the beginning of the year till date, it is important to give Him praise.
We must refuse to be ungrateful to God for His Kindness. Therefore, in our study today, we shall be looking at the spell of ingratitude and its consequences.
It has been established that the lifestyle of ingratitude is a doorway to stagnation in life and destiny. To be ungrateful is to be stagnated and grounded.
Let me give you one example. The children of Israel suffered the tragedy of ingratitude in the wilderness on their way to the Promised Land. When they first saw manna and asked, “What is this?” God sentenced them to the same diet for forty years in the wilderness.
The first day manna fell, they called it manna. I want you to know that “manna” is not a name but a question, “What is this?” They called it “manna” meaning, “What is this?” That is to say, when God graciously provided them the food, they asked a question instead of thanking Him for the provision.
Then God seemed to have said, “You said, ‘What is this?’ instead of thanking me for what I provided for you? Continue to eat it for forty years”. There was no change of diet for them. They may have gotten other variety of foods had they given thanks to God, but they ate the same manna for forty years because of ingratitude.
Beloved, don’t question God. Thank God for where you are; someone else is praying to be there. You may not know the person but there is someone somewhere whose expectation is to be in your current position.
So refuse to question God. Don’t let murmuring, complaining and grumbling dry up your life and resources. Avoid the tragedy of ingratitude so you can move forward in life and destiny.
Remember this: Don’t let murmuring, complaining and grumbling dry up your life and resources.
PRAYER: Lord, deliver me from the attitude of ingratitude. Help me to appreciate You always for where I am on the way to where I’m going, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
