Murmuring Defeat God’s Blessings

17 05 2011

Did you know that your murmuring affects your ability to receive blessings from God? This was a new concept to me, though it shouldn’t have been.


Webster’s defines murmuring as a half suppressed or muttered complaint.


            Unfortunately murmuring is nothing new, the first murmuring was found in the garden of Eden when the serpent caused Adam and Eve to fall.  This murmuring and the actions that followed caused Adam and Eve to lose the blessing of living with God in the garden of Eden.


          The bible record three major causes for murmuring Thirst, Hunger and Fear. In the coming blogs we will look at all three and see how each affects our ability to receive blessings from God.


            Looking to the bible we search such words as complain and faultfinders to understand murmuring more. Jude 1:16 tells us: These men are grumblers and faultfinders; they follow their own evil desires; they boast about themselves and flatter others for their own advantage.


            These are attributes of someone who murmurs, they follow their own desires, boast about themselves and flatter others for their own advantage, as we close this blog, do you find any of these attributes in yourself? If we are honest we all do from time to time. I know for me, I have made the decision to break the habit of murmuring, for it is not what God wants for me, and yes also I desire to receive every blessing possible from God.


            A special thanks to Celina who first spoke this truth about murmuring in a meeting I was leading and with her sister Honey, they gave me more information critical to this teaching. Thanks to both of you, for it takes a community to teach the world.
