Do You Complain … or Pray?

prayMoses received his commission from God to lead the people of Israel out of Egypt, he brought his burdens and problems to God. He continually took his issues with Pharaoh to the Lord. And in every case, God gave him answers. Then in the wilderness, on the many occasions when the people disobeyed God, Moses sought no other solace than that which God offered. He repeatedly came before the Lord and asked for strength to properly lead God’s people.

Unlike Moses, we are often tempted to tell our best friends—or anyone who will listen—about our woes. We talk about how badly others are treating us, how awful things are, about each and every problem we’re facing. We choose to take our problems to others instead of taking them to God.

Like Moses, choose to pray. Take your burdens directly to the Lord. Ask for His help and guidance. Seek His wisdom and solutions. As God instructed in Jeremiah 33:3, “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”

We could all benefit from some guidance on how to pray with more fervor and faithfulness. And there are no better prayer mentors than the men and women of the Bible who talked with God and touched His heart.
