NURTURING BITTERNESS.

SOUL-LIFT DAILY DEVOTIONAL WITH
DR D.M. TIKILI.

DATE: Friday, September 24 2021.

TOPIC: NURTURING BITTERNESS.

DEVOTIONAL READING: Numbers 26:9-11.

KEY VERSE: Now Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, and Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On, the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took men: And they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred and fifty princes of the assembly, famous in the congregation, men of renown: (Numbers 16:1-2).

BIBLE CHARACTER IN VIEW: KORAH.

Korah had a bad attitude of complaining and grumbling, to him the glass was always half empty. Instead of concentrating on all his blessing (and they were many), he rather focused on what he didn’t have. His discontentment turned into jealousy and then resentment set in. overcome with bitterness, he challenged Moses, GOD’s appointed leader. His rebellion resulted in his death and that of many Israelites.

Imagine how differently would it have turned out suppose that Korah would have spent his time, energy, and emotion thanking GOD for delivering him and his family from Egyptian bondage.

Imagine that Korah would have regularly expressed appreciation to GOD for the privilege of being a Levite and for the opportunity to work in and around the tabernacle. Consider the difference if Korah would have prayed daily for Moses and Aaron, the leaders of Israel. There’s no doubt that if Korah would have cultivated contentment, his witness would have brought glory to GOD.

How can we guard against grumbling?

Practice the art of appreciation.

Thank GOD often for the many blessings He has given you. Focus on what GOD has called you to do.

Serve faithfully and leave issues like prestige, prominence, and position in GOD’s hands. If you’re trying to grab the spotlight, or you are mad that someone else is enjoying the limelight, beware! Check it!

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Grumbling Is A Denial Of God’s Work In Our Lives.

The sad story of Korah is found in Numbers 16:1-40; 26:9-11; Jude 11.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION:
1. O LORD, deliver me from the spirit of grumbling and complaining in the Name of Jesus Christ.
2. O LORD, make me sensitive to my time of divine visitation in Jesus’ Name.
3. Every counterfeit prophecy over my life be cancelled and be nullified by the power in the Blood of JESUS.
4. Thou power of GOD, pursue my pursuers, confront my confronters today in Jesus’ Name.O Lord, deliver me from the spirit of bitterness in the Name of Jesus.

Be Victorious in Jesus Name.
