So I was listening to Joyce Meyer on YouTube and she said a phrase that stuck out to me "Complain and Remain. Praise and be Raised." I love that. This all ties into my "renewing my mind" challenge that I've placed myself on. A challenge that I hope to become a lifestyle change.
My future depends on it. :-D
Check out this video that inspired this post as well as the article below.
Stay Blessed...Stay Tuned....
Truth - when you complain, you remain.
You remain in mediocrity.
You remain in your old attitude.
You remain in your old situation.
You remain in your cold heart.
You remain in any struggle you are in.
It has been said that the victory over any struggle lies in what you say during those struggles. When you complain, you will remain in those struggles.
The only way for breakthrough and unto freedom is this -
In praising God, you lift up all your heartaches to Him. It expresses that though you may be in pain yet you are still firm that you will remain true. In praising God, you are letting it all go and letting God to be God.
Don't be surprised when you praise God- you will be raised.
You will be raised to victory.
You will be raised to promotion.
You will be raised to the fulfillment of your dreams.
You will be raised to become a better you.
It is amazing that God moves in a mysterious way when He blesses us. We thought He raises things in order to promote us but the truth is, He is not raising the things, He is raising us. Yes, over any criticism, over any impossibilities, over any hindrances, over any lack. And in His time, God's glory is revealed and He is honored because you praised Him in advance though you were in a hard situation.
"But in everything by prayer with thanksgiving..."
When you complain, you remain. When you praise, you will be raised
