Forms of Contempt
“Helping People Fulfill God’s Plan For Their Lives Through Business”
Grumbling, Complaining, Blaming and Whining are forms of contempt!
Not one of them will ever see the (Promised) Land I promised on oath to their forefathers. No one who has treated me with contempt will ever see it. But because my servant Caleb has a different spirit and follows me wholeheartedly, I will bring him into the land he went to, and his descendants will inherit it. Numbers 14:23-24
Are you grumbling, complaining, blaming or whining about something in your life? Are you treating God with contempt?
Don’t allow sin against you to become sin in you and contempt toward God.
□ Contempt means a lack of respect accompanied by a feeling of intense dislike. Contempt is a manner that is generally disrespectful to a person or thing or authority. Contempt is willful disobedience.
After 37 years in the desert, the Israelites forgot that their wanderings were a result of their parents’ sin and their own sin. They could not accept the fact that they brought their problems upon themselves, so they blamed Moses for their condition. Often your troubles result from your own disobedience or lack of faith. You cannot blame God for your sins. Until you face this reality you will have little peace and no spiritual growth.
Problems in our lives shape and mold our character. Major changes, delayed promises, unanswered prayers, undeserved criticism, and even senseless tragedies will test you. Your faith in the promises of God will get you through these circumstances. Hope will bring restoration to your soul. Love will reconcile relationships and overcome fear. Perfect love casts out fear.
Jesus said, “Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.” Luke 14:27. The cross you must carry is to love those who are not loving you.
Christ carried HIS CROSS for you and nailed fear, sin, shame and death on the cross. He died for all mankind in order to reconcile man to God. He paid your sin debt on the cross. There is no more condemnation. You are no longer a slave to fear. Christ did his part. He has given you victory over sin, death and fear. There is only rejoicing and shouting Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God Almighty. You have won and have victory through Christ Jesus. Rejoice in the Lord and the victory you have in Christ.
Christ came to show you the way to the FATHER. HE came to restore you to HIS original plan and purpose of LOVE. Receive HIS love and walk in HIS Righteousness today.
