Crying Out or Complaining

When the Sunday morning message and my weekly bible study run across the same couple of verse, I understand that as providence, a manifestation of divine care or direction.

God had heard the cries of his people under the oppression of Egypt.  He was sending someone to lead them out of bondage.

Do you ever read the Sunday Comics? A recent Hagar the Horrible had Hagar setting out to sea. He encountered a terrible storm where his ship began to sink. He cried out to God for help. God replied that sometimes adversity comes into our lives, and we needed to face it with our chin up. He added that no one likes a complainer.

It made me think. Are you crying out to God out of your oppression? Or are you complaining to God because you don’t like your situation?  It is all in your attitude and approach.

Sometimes I am crying out. Sometimes I am complaining.  As God reminded Moses as he approached the burning bush, we are standing on holy ground when we approach the Lord. (And we need to act like it.)

So are you crying out or complaining? Remember where you are standing.
