It’s been said that these modern times have produced a generation of people who’ve grown up in a negative culture – the blame culture!
With this kind of mind-set, this kind of perspective, those so afflicted can point the finger at someone else for their failures or misfortune.
My parents didn’t love me!
No one gave me a helping hand!
I came from a broken home!
I didn’t attend the right school… college… university!
I didn’t grow up in the right neighbourhood!
I don’t have the right skin colour!
I wasn’t given the same opportunities!
I… I… I…
Godly warriors and victorious over-comers, if we want this year to be a year of supernatural success and consistent achievement, we need to take responsibility for our thoughts, attitudes and actions.
Let’s cast an eye on a few biblical examples where people, who could have felt justified for going down the road of anger, bitterness, self-pity, or revenge, chose instead to trust God, to be patient in tribulation and to forgive those who’d wronged them.
- Joseph did not blame his brothers for putting him in a pit, for selling him as a slave
- David did not blame his family for dismissing him as someone with the potential to be king, with the potential to succeed
- Ruth did not blame her mother-in-law, or life in general, for ending up a young widow
- Daniel did not blame God when his faithfulness in prayer, caused him to be thrown into the lion’s den
Dear WoW! follower and visitor,
May I encourage you to adopt the same attitudes as those individuals in my examples above?
May I invite you to watch the following motivational video and to pay heed to its message?
I hope it will inspire you to change (if applicable). And I hope it will inspire you to pray for yourself, and/or to pray for anyone you know, who’ve become entrapped within the gall of bitterness.
With heartfelt good wishes for you, that this will be a year of tremendous blessings and significant breakthroughs.
