Don’t Forget: Life has Purpose at Every Stage! Part Four

“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory to be revealed to us.” Romans 8:18

When something is wrong in our lives, it’s natural to want to complain about it. We want to share our misery with someone and have them commiserate with us and forget that every stage of life has a purpose. But does complaining actually make us feel any better? According to a study published in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, the answer is no. On the contrary, complaining only makes people more miserable.

The study participants were asked to keep a journal for two weeks. Then, every day, they were asked to write about either a positive or negative event that had happened that day. The people who wrote about negative events felt worse than those who wrote about positive ones. Interestingly, the people who wrote about more negative events also complained more than those who wrote about fewer negative events.

Psalm 78:32 says, “Despite all this, they continued sinning; despite His wonderful works, they did not believe.

This isn’t surprising when considering what the Israelites experienced during their time in the wilderness. When the Israelites were on their way to the Promised Land, they got sidetracked with sins and harboring unbelief. The bible said they complained, and then God said to Moses, “How long will they refuse to believe in me, despite all the miraculous signs I have performed among them?” (Numbers 14:11). Because of their complaint, they spend forty years in the wilderness instead of forty days which is each day for one year (Numbers 14:34).

Just like the Israelites, when you find yourself in challenging circumstances, it’s easy to become discouraged and complain. You may feel that your life has no purpose or that God has forgotten you. But the truth is, God is with you every step of the way, and He has a plan for you. So instead of complaining, ask God to help you find your purpose in life by giving you a chance at a better life because everything about God’s plan is worth waiting for. Psalm 27:14 says, “Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord.”

Oh Lord, help me cast away every spirit that murmur and complains; help me to cast away every spirit harboring unbelief and doubt.
Holy Spirit, help me not give up on God’s plan for my life in Jesus’ name.
