Yesterday, I read from Psalm 78. Throughout the chapter, the children of Israel were constantly whining and complaining in spite of all the things God had done for them. He divided the waters for them to cross, gave them water when they were thirsty, fed them when they were hungry, etc. As I read through this Psalm, not one time did I see them thanking God for His provisions. I couldn't help but think of how the Israelites actions are not different from most of us today. So often we complain about the things that we don't have, yet fail to thank and praise the Lord for the things we do have. When we find ourselves thinking this way, we need to turn back one Psalm and put into action verses 10-12. "And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High. I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember thy wonders of old. I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings." All of us need to take the time to look back and remember where God has brought us from, what He has done for us and all He is going to do. Before we start to complain and whine about our present circumstances, let's take time to be thankful for the Lord's goodness to us.
