Don’t Complain… Act On The Word

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with
thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God (Philippians 4:6).

Oftentimes, you’ll find certain people whose everyday life is filled with pain,
discouragement and defeat. You’d expect such folks to be quick to accept help at the slightest opportunity; but they’d rather gripe and whine about the difficulties they’re going through. We find a typical example with a certain man Jesus encountered at the poolof Bethesda. He had suffered a paralytic condition  for thirty-eight long years. Though Jesus knew the man had been sick for so long, He still asked him, “Do you want to get well?” The man didn’t answer the question, but got defensive and started complaining about how he had been abandoned by everyone, with no one to help him into the  pool every time the angel stirred the water. He didn’t ask Jesus for help either; he ignored  the important question and griped about the situation.That’s the way some people are; they complain to God about their problems, blaming others  and society for the challenges they’re going through, instead of acting on the Word.The Bible says, “…count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations” (James 1:2).Romans 8:35-37 says, “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?…Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved  us.”When you face challenges, don’t cry. Stand your ground in faith. Keep affirming the Word, knowing that greater is He that’s in you, than he  that’s in the world. Refuse to bediscouraged by the enormity of the problem. The greater the trouble, the greater the glory that’ll  be manifested. This is the reality. You’re greater than the challenges you face . hallelujah.

PRAYER

Dear Father, I’m confident and grateful for the life of victory you’ve called me into.All things work together for my good, including the challenges and troubles that Iface; they work for me a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. Therefore,now and always, my heart is filled with joy unspeakable, and full of glory, in Jesus’Name. Amen.
