Don't Be A Complainer - Victoria Osteen

2017-08-09 | 🔗
A faultfinder is defined as “a person given to harsh judgments and to finding faults.” None of us want to wear that label, and none of us want to be around a faultfinder. But it’s so easy to see what’s wrong in a situation and what could be done better. It’s so easy to see what’s wrong with another person and how they could change for the better. Our natural minds tend to always gravitate to the negative, and it causes us to find fault.You can’t stop all the negative thoughts you have about people and situations, but you can stop giving those thoughts life by speaking them out. Don’t give it life! Don’t ruin relationships and situations! You’re never going to see the change you want by finding fault.So what should you do? God says, “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:16–18 NIV). Let’s not be faultfinders. Let’s be those who pray and petition God for change with thanksgiving in our heart.

i want to remind us all today to not be complainers and fault binders oh man really we don't need to become players and ball finder's fee is easy to see why wrong in a situation it's easy to what could be done better you know naturally we tend to look at the negative just our natural minds gender always gravitate to the negative it causes us to find fault but we want to be complainers import binders finders because we know that it doesn't please god you know we're all guilty of this i'll be the first one to raise my hand ok because sometimes it
it's good to complain you get it you chad steer just then t it why do we complain one reason it feels good some time ok let's just get real about it we all thought i did get it off my chest and then i'll be ok or we think are i think sometimes if i complain can change the situation i'll go to jail and i'll tell him why this is right and why we should do it this way because think i'm going to change the situation right but changes situation but implying by finding fault you usually make the situation worse then we can all think these thoughts of how we could do it better you gotta learn that we don't have to give life to these thoughts
you say when we give life to these negative thoughts we create a more negative environment we not only promote ourselves this negative environment but we pollute other people we cause them to begin to think negative thoughts because if it can spread if we're not careful no one wants to be around a complainer no one wants to be around a fault finder we don't either so let's what we say saying even though it may be good for a time have we stopped step back in thought but is it when us any good is it really do in us any good you see i was reading this study and i thought it was very interesting and these researchers we're too about the brain and the effects of the on the brain when we complain
and it says that when we complain we literally rewire our brain to complain you see our brain wants to take the path of least resistance it wants to take the easy way out so i what's to repeat a pattern so when you complain you learn complain more you're wiring hand this negative pattern and so really what the researchers were saying is worth trying our own brains to complain wanna be a complainer our be a person that has failed and hope yes we're all gonna have the opportunity to complain because there's no perfect person there's no per expounds there's no point job lie in perfect so we're not can i get rid of the fact that there are opportunities to complain
but i want to suggest to us today to be smarter than a complainer to figure out a way to be the solution to the problem does not just complain about the problem defined no way to act properly when you feel negative and the this way is not to train your brain to complain scripture is ball of stories and that's your says that these stories are placed here so there we can learn something we can learn valuable lessons for our own lie so i want quickly take back to the israelites when god brought them agent he them out by a man named moses we know it story
they were led out of captivity by later name moses and he didn't buy gods command he was able to do it because god said i am taking my people to a land that is with milk and honey he call that the promised land now they had been quickly have to endure the the barry canned of pharoah they had been mistreated and god says enough is enough i'm taking him people out now you ve been mistreated sometimes you come out very with a bitter mentality but and wanted to reverse this victim mentality so you know when he had the options do tyrolean those people he had them are the wealth the israelites so when they left egypt they didn't leave with nothing they laughed with gold and silver and cattle very left well equipped valid
with the mindset of oh wow this god because may god could do that to the red sea in god parted the red sea they want through on dry land they we're on their way to the promised land but as they got on their way guess what they started some see in some things that could be done better baby no look imbalances in their mouths is really i can do this better baby to look at areas in question the leadership they begin complain and mom bowling grumble you see they begin pliant complain about their food and their water in their enemies but you know it's really interesting indeed agronomy one too this is what it says it does god with making them to the promised land he had already ordained to get them there it was an eleven days journey
you see they left with more than enough to there are eleven days but it took him forty years forty years was it moses had stopped him what their enemies that stop them was it the back they didn't have the right booth that stop them know what they thought was their enemies the things they were complaining about the things that we're blame mean in pointing the finger at their enemy at all their number one enemy was there murmuring and complaining have you ever thought that's your own marine and complaining could limit your thinking could literally stop you going to the next level have you ever thought how unhealthy it really is see thank you the israelites could read the research that i read
they want to set all my gosh i'm dr training my own brain to complain and that complaining is enemy number one enemy number one i just today if we can try and our brain to complain we can train our brain tissue god and how he can work in a situation where the latter only trying to believe that guy can do something it's taking us all somewhere can i tell you right now you have everything you need right now to get to where gods taking you if god is lady knew nothing can stop you you say that's where the israel i've missed it they were looking at that in the circumstances around them they forgot to look to their guy it's easy to blame its
to see out of these eyes but we to begin to see out of our supernatural i've that thing i'm theme the hand of god behind the scenes that's fighting our battle for us and keep our mouth closed until we get there you see they complained about manna manner the bread that came down from heaven that god provided for them every single day branch and they had this manna every single day i'm tired of the manor have you ever got tired of something every day i go to work today actually in this house every day i think my husband's aren't you they tired of this manner so that begin to grumble and complain about this manner
i did so interesting but that just fire in the whole can so they all started grumbling and complaining and when you humble in complying you know what happens attitude come up out of you that are now pleasing to guide in grumbling and complaining can literally change our perspective they started thinking about the food used to eat i mean in the leaks in the garlic begin to take their mind back to what they use to eat in captivity so much that that food became more important in their freedom instead of going to that manna every day is saying god i'm on it this until you change it but i rightful than i am free
i am grateful that you are taking me somewhere they sometimes we all want something bigger we want go to the next level but we want to do what it takes to get to that next level yeah what a job promotion ah i want this promotion now don't wanna work any extra hours and if i can have a husband my life would be complete i am waiting for my man i said i do not want to cook foreign though we want things but we don't war what it eggs to have those things and this was their dilemma they wanted out of captivity gods i'm taking you somewhere but they didn't a face the trials until they their listen if you like what's going on in your life jane this common
change is common changes common changes common but you're not gonna find it by complaining and grumbling you're gonna find it stay the course bobby ungrateful see complaining buying worse than the situation not the best if you can train your mind complain can train you're mine to find the best way to what it says in the libyans to fourteen this kind of the antidote c in the negative and figured out what do with it you can see gonna get in there but what are you do with it don't life don't spread it don't ruin relationships don't stop your destiny figure what to do with it before you let it out and this is what got to say first of all commanding as do all day
without grumbling finding fault and complaining so there's one thing i can recognize i'm not supposed to let it out one supposed to do with a guy i mean i'm only human right he says a little later in phillipines for five he says pry hired you gotta go quite a few say somethin wrong prior ass god about it pray and ass god about it what you do with it and then it says with thanks give in your can you imagine if they want to said lawford man is getting old do you think you could send some quail god thank you father others manna thou and if you don't send some well now you did me where i'm darwin oh god i'm asking
asking you for some quail use if they would have sandwiched their request between thanksgiving i think we'd be reading a different story about them tat would be teaching us a different lesson about their dont week in your faith by your com strengthen it by your prayer you're petitions to guy your request now with thank giving in your heart you see what they do is they laugh what they had to chase after what they didn't have better complaining does it say hi i'm grateful for what i have to get more it says you know why hear what i have i want more really that's what complaining does scripture says it when they thought they
complaining to moses in erin they were really complaining about god listen i'm guilty of complaining but you know what i want to watch my complaining because i know it's right up there with worry it isn't changing a thing it's not doing anything for me for my life it's only shrinking it limiting it me to where i need to be assessed we thought founders income planners let's be those who prey and petition guy with thanksgiving in our heart a man
