Winning Wisdom — Don't Complain; Pray

Topic: Don't Complain; Pray [Monday, 15th May 2017]

Do everything without complaining and arguing. Philippians 2:14

The task ahead of us - shining as light in a dark and perversed world - do not demand for people who complain and make unreasonable and unnecessary arguments. It calls for focussed men, who, in spite of how enormous it is, give their all to illuminate a dark world as the light God has made them to be. Focus is key here, because when a light is wavering, which complaining brings, it can't illuminate the place it is in well enough.

We all know that the demands of the Lord are high. And we are required to give our best to the course God has set us on. Complaining about it should be out of the question, especially when faced with some challenges on the way. There is a better way to deal with issues like that: Prayer. Prayer is very key to ease us off the seeming stress we might be going through. There is no better stress reliever than talking to God. Scriptures says "give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you" (1 Peter 5:7). And we can only do this through prayer.

Instead of complaining and arguing unnecessary, talk to God about the things you are facing in the course of illuminating your sphere of contact. Scriptures says His peace that passes all understanding will keep your heart and mind (Philippians 4:6-7). At the state of peace and tranquility, you will be in the right frame of mind to illuminate your world with your light. You are the light of the world, and light can do nothing but shine. That is why it is only incumbent on you to shine your light in a world full with crooked and perversed people (Philippians 2:15).

Keep winning daily.

Wise Action:

Talk to your Father pertaining all that is impeding you from illuminating your world.
