When I complain, I am saying I believe God is mismanaging things in the world and I could do a better job. It’s a form of idolatry. This is why it is God’s will for me to give thanksgiving constantly. Of course, I really know I can hardly manage all the things in my own life much less all the millions of things of God lovingly shields me from even having to know. The truth is that He has designed me to live by faith and not by sight – faith that the whole world is full of His glory and that He is sovereign and in control of all things – and that He cares for me. Because of this, I can be thankful in all circumstances.
Is 6:3; 1 Th 5:18; 2 Co 5:7; 1 Pt 5:7
