Wrong Ways To Make A Request Known
The way we present a need to the person we know can assist will determine whether we will receive answer to our request or not. Some people are fond of frowning and using harsh language in making their needs known, some grumble or murmur, some complain without actually going straight to the point, thinking, with this attitude someone will listen to them. Instead of the Israelites to ask Moses with a concerned heart how they could get water to drink in this wilderness, they started complaining, insulting Moses and God’s decision to deliver them from Egypt. They even fought Moses. All these could not solve the problem on ground. This was a wrong way of making a need known. When met with new challenges, don’t apportion blame, face it squarely and solve it and move on with your life.
Point of Emphasis: Stop murmuring and complaining, start reasoning and acting on your problem.
Prayer Point: Oh God, Help me to face life’s challenges with courage and solve them.
