Little Jonny wanted to have his favorite snack on his trip to the supermarket but to his surprise his mom told him “no, not at this time”!
That was when he threw himself down on the ground and started to kick and scream; I want my snack, it’s my favorite, you told me when we go grocery shopping you would get it for me!!! Because of the embarrassment his mother couldn’t help but get it for him because she wanted him to stop screaming!
Are your frustrated about the things that are missing in your life? Maybe when people ask you about your life you create stories and you give excuses…
Let me make something very clear to you; in reality the above tantrum stunt will never work with God. You can’t just go to Him kicking and screaming because I am sure the end result will certainly not be like that of little Johnny.
BUT, there was a man in the Bible that was frustrated with his situation. He did not have a tantrum, he did not use his emotions, instead he used his intelligent faith. Now this is called spiritual maturity.
After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.” But Abram said, “Lord God, what will You give me, seeing I go childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?” Genesis 15:1-2
He was frustrated because something was missing from his life; he wanted a son!
What is missing in your life? Have faith like Abraham and let God know what is the barrenness in your life. Present your frustration, your indignation to God, because He is the one who can fix it.
The Campaign of Israel at the Temple of Solomon is for those who want to see God’s greatness in their lives.
Are you one of these people?
May the God of the Bible bless you.
