Don’t be envious of other people’s success. Don’t be jealous of others progress and accomplishments. Celebrate others success and they will celebrate yours.
Everyone walk in their own time clock. God knows when you will gained admission, graduate, have a decent job, buy a house and get married. Don’t let others rush you with their own time clock. “For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie; thou it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” Hab.2:3.
God’s time is the best, His timings are perfect. Weeping is not permitted to go beyond a night. “For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” PS.30:5. Don’t be tired in your covenant walk with God. “And let us not be weary of well doing: for in due season, we shall reap if we faint not.” Gal.6:9. Where you are now is smaller than where God is taking you to. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel. There is nothing that begins which has no end. “For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.” Prov.23:18.
Celebrate your success and celebrate the success of others, this is the key to live a fulfilled life. Stop magnifying your problems out of proportion by telling everyone about your woes and misfortunes. Complains will make you get bitter with God. See the positive and thank God for it. There is always something to thank God for.
If you are the one who complains you don’t have as much clothes as you ought to, thank God at least you are not naked. If you are the one who complains that you are unemployed, thank God, at least you are a potential candidate for employment, what if your case were mental case? Would you be able to attend school?
Don’t let the opinion of others affect your actions, when you allow this to happen to you, you have just locked yourself in your own prison with the only one prisoner which is you.
Mind what you say to others, unthoughtful, negative spoken word can violates ones human existence. Carelessly uttered statements can persecute the mind of the victim.
Be yourself, trying to be someone else is a waste of your own making.
Don’t be religious, be real, the Jews were very religious people, they went to church, paid thite and offerings but still went into captivity. They went into captivity because they served God with their mouths but their minds were far from God. What you say in your mind is more important to God than what you say with your mouth. “As he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” Prov.23:7
You can’t deceive God by making positive confessions with your mouth and negative in your mind. “Neither is any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.” Heb.4:13.
It works like fire! Serving God works like a fire!! Nothing remain worse obeying God. If anything would fail, not like obedience. “And we know that all things work together for good, to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.” Rom.8:28
