Day 2: Pound of Complaint
Think about it:
Don't do ANYTHING that you are going to COMPLAIN about later.
Is it eating that extra piece of cake?
Is it staying up too late at night?
Is it doing something that you know you shouldn't be doing,
but you do it anyway?
Is it something that has happened to you beyond your control?
Is it ______________?
What is your ANYTHING?
No matter how it came about,
it is real.
Did you know that the first complainer was Adam?
He said yes to eat the apple that he knew that he wasn't supposed to eat!
He complained to GOD that
“the woman you put here with me – she gave me some fruit from the tree, & I ate it”(Genesis 3:12).
Adam blamed GOD.
COMPLAINING leads to BLAME~
Because it has to go somewhere.
Who do you BLAME for what you are COMPLAINING about?
Is it you? Are you the initiator?
Is it someone else

has no power to take away what you just did,
what happened to you, or what you may have to do.
It just adds more weight.
So how do we lose this pound of
no matter what is causing the
COMPLAIN to GOD!
Send your COMPLAINT to HIM.
COMPLAINT Defined: babbling, communication, meditation, prayer, talk.
"I cry aloud to the LORD. I lift up my voice to the LORD for mercy. I pour out before HIM my COMPLAINT; before HIM I tell my trouble"
HE is all ears.
GOD will take your pound of COMPLAINT and
release you from carrying its burden of BLAME.
So let's FAST from COMPLAINING today.
Every time you want to
HE will carry it.
But most importantly
you will actually lose 2 pounds today~
because if you fast from
there will be no
