Stop Grouching and Start Complying - 4


how to become resourceful


Sow the seed

 A man once told his ten-year-old child that the earth works for those who work for her. The man continued; you cannot expect mangoes when you have not planted a mango seed in a fertile soil. The earth produces what we have sowed.


In the same way, couples of the same gender cannot produce natural children. Having children takes a husband (man) and his wife (woman). When the man sows the seed (semen) in the woman, God turns the seed into a child in the woman’s womb.


There is no way two males (couples) can produce children. In the same way, two women cannot produce children. There is no way a human being and an animal can produce a child. Gays and lesbians may adopt a child, transplant human semen in an incubator, or use an illegal way to produce children.


However, that is not God’s wisdom. Even in the animal kingdom, two male dogs cannot mate—talk of even producing offspring. In the same way, two female dogs cannot mate. Two female cats cannot produce little cats (offspring).


It takes the seed of the male dog and the female dog to produce little dogs. Today, some people feel it is their “right” to determine their gender. Some men take drugs and operate in hospitals to become “women.”


Some women, too, take drugs and operate in hospitals to become “men.” They may change some parts of their bodies. However, they cannot produce children. For instance, a man who has changed his identity into a “woman” cannot give birth because he (I don’t know whether to use he/she) does not have the womb to produce children.


So, what is my point? You may violate God’s creation. However, it will not remain the same. It is the seed you sow that determines the fruit. Some people complain about food, money, shelter, and lack of jobs; meanwhile, these people have not sown any seed.


As stated at the beginning of the article, do not expect mangoes until you plant the seed of a mango in fertile soil. God has provided whatever we need. We must sow the seed. For instance, you will not know the importance of a tree.


You can complain that you don’t have a house, chair, table, and bed. However, the house, chair, table, and bed are in the tree. You must turn the tree into a house, chair, table, and bed. Some people have tomatoes, plantain, cassava, oil, potatoes, onions, and raw farm materials, yet they complain of hunger.


People complain of hunger because they do not use their minds. You must turn the tomatoes, oil, potatoes, onions, cassava, and raw farm materials into consumable food. God will not turn the farm materials into consumable food.


It is up to you to use your mind. You remain hungry until you cook the cassava, plantain, and potatoes and use the oil, tomatoes, and onions to make stew. You must do something to get something. That something is your seed.


I used my time, energy, and resources to write this article. I could have used that time, energy, and resources for something else. However, I decided to use the time, energy, and resources to write. That’s my seed. My seed will generate fruits. Stop complaining and start sowing seeds. The Holy Bible states that God will bless the works of our hands.


For the LORD thy God hath blessed thee in all the works of thy hand: he knoweth thy walking through this great wilderness: these forty years the LORD thy God hath been with thee; thou hast lacked nothing.

Deuteronomy 2:7 KJV

God does not bless empty hands. What are you doing with your hands? Some people complain that God is not blessing them. These people have nothing to present to God. How do you expect God to bless an empty hand?


God sends rain to the earth during a specific season. The rain will not benefit you until you plant something in the fertile soil. Some people claim that the grace of God will bring success. However, God expects us to plant something.


Grace brings the rain. However, the rain (grace) will not benefit you if you have no seed in the fertile soil. Stop complaining and start complying! What are you doing with your hands? How do you expect God to bless an empty hand?


How do you expect God to increase you when you have nothing to present? The Holy Bible states that God blesses the works of our hands. Where are your works? Satan knew this secret. When Satan encountered God, he declared that Job received blessings from his works.


Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.

Job 1:10 KJV

Satan declared that God had blessed the works (seeds) of Job. Furthermore, God increased the substance (seeds) of Job. One thing you must know about God is that He increases our works. Stop complaining that God has forsaken you.


God has not forgotten you. His blessings work day and night. One reason you are not experiencing the blessings of God is that you have no works. Assuming a manager wants to promote his employees who have a degree from a recognized institution.


If you don’t have a degree from a recognized institution, there is no way you can receive a promotion from the manager. That is how God works. Where is your degree? I mean, where are your works?


What do you want God to bless? How do you expect God to bless an empty hand? Do something with your life. You can ask God to bless the work when you start doing something with your hands.


However, don’t complain that God has ignored you if you are doing nothing. You are the problem. You are not producing anything. You don’t have any product. You have no service. How do you expect God to bless you when you don’t provide a service or produce a product?


How do you expect your family and friends to help you if you are not doing anything? At least, do something. Don’t expect God to bless you if you have nothing to do. Where are your plans? Where is your desire?


What is your vision? What positive actions are you exhibiting to provoke assistance? What seeds are sowing? Sow something. God will pour his rain on the seed! Stop complaining and start complying!



The power to make wealth

how to build your self worth

thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.

Deuteronomy 8:18 KJV

We don’t become wealthy by chance. We become prosperous by our desires, actions, and mindset. The Holy Bible states that God has given us the power to get wealth. This means prosperity is a choice.


In the same way, poverty is a choice. God has given us the ability, resources, energy, plans, ideas, gifts, skills, and knowledge to become wealthy. Stop complaining and start complying! Why are you complaining if God has given you the power to become rich?


You are failing because you are not using the power God has given you. You have the emotional, spiritual, social, psychological, technological, and physical power to make wealth. Stop complaining and start complying!

  • What are you doing with your emotional strength?
  • What are you doing with your intellectual strength?
  • What are you doing with your social strength?
  • What are you doing with your spiritual strength?
  • What are you doing with your psychological strength?
  • What are you doing with your physical strength?
  • What are you doing with your technological strength?

Stop complaining and start complying because God has given you the power to make wealth!



The seed of laziness

Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread.

Proverbs 20:13 KJV

As humans, we must rest when tired. We must rest to recover our strength. However, too much of everything is bad. Sleeping too much leads to poverty. The Holy Bible states that people who love sleep will suffer poverty.


Laziness is one of the gateways to poverty. I encourage you to download and read my book, The Uncommon Wisdom Keys, for more profound revelation. The books are free on my blog. Stop complaining and start complying. You are not making it because of your laziness. You are idle.


For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.

Proverbs 23:21 KJV

I hope you got the key. Some people argue that Christ Jesus turned water into wine, so they drink wine. I am sharing this secret with you. The alcohol content in the wine Christ Jesus produced was zero percent.


There was no way Christ Jesus’s wine could make the people act like drunkards and gluttons. Christ Jesus’ wine was a soft drink! This is one reason the king at the party enjoyed the wine (I believe it was Coca-Cola!).


The wine (Coca-Cola) was so sweet that the king recommended Christ Jesus’ wine. However, the devil’s wine makes people drunkards and gluttons. As stated in the Holy Bible, poverty comes to drunkards and gluttons.


Observe drunkards and gluttons. They live miserably! I have encountered a few drunkards. Analyzing them, they look depressed and unclean! Drunkards most often have mental challenges.


They misuse their money because of their unstable mindset. Drunkards live aimlessly! On the other hand, gluttons spend their money on food. We cannot deny this truth. We eat and drink. However, overeating can hurt the body.


It doesn’t matter how rich the food is. Overeating can affect our health. The body can contain a certain amount of food, drinks, and water. Overeating can make the body overworked. Some people have become obsessed because of overeating.


Most often, they have big stomachs (pop bellies). Sometimes, you might think some men are pregnant. However, they are not pregnant! It is obesity! Some even use their pop bellies to get fans.


Some people, too, have bulimia because of overeating. I used to overeat to the extent that I found it difficult to breathe. One thing I found is that overeating can make us uncomfortable, especially when we are about to sleep.


As stated, overeating can affect our health. The money you could have used to do important things will be channeled to medical drugs. You will be using your money to buy expensive drugs to cure yourself.


Another thing about overeating is that it makes us lazy. Overeating can make you think and behave strangely! I have realized that when I overeat, foolish thoughts come into my mind. Things that do not look funny become funny when I overeat.


Sometimes, I get bad dreams when I overeat. As stated, we have to eat and drink. However, Christ Jesus stated that we should not live by bread alone. Spending too much on food can make you poor.


After all, the food will turn into feces within minutes! Do not get drunk because it leads to poverty (see Proverbs 23:21). When you stop drinking alcoholic beverages and avoid too much food, the complaints will stop.


You will be focused when you stop drinking alcohol. You will be visionary when you manage your meals. You will become significant when you hate laziness and idleness. Stop complaining and start complying. Meditate on this Holy Scripture for more profound revelation.


Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:

So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth; and thy want as an armed man.

Proverbs 24:33-34 KJV



The seed of disobedience

how to become rich

Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured.

Proverbs 13:18 KJV

Every normal vessel desires freedom. We do not want others to dictate to us because of our free will. However, you must understand that you cannot always be right. Like a child playing with a sharp knife.


The interference of the parents and loved ones can make the child angry because the child will think the parents and loved ones don’t want him to play with the knife. However, the parents and loved ones know what the child does not know.


The parent knows the sharp knife can damage the child. The rebuke of the parent can make the child rebel. That is how some people act. They act like children. They think that they are always right.


They do not want others to advise and instruct them. Well, if you are the type that hates instruction and rebuke, the Holy Bible states that poverty and shame will befriend you (see Proverbs 13:18).


Some “women” complain that no one wants to propose to them or marry them. However, if you check their history, you will realize that such women have bad characters that drive men away. What habit are you portraying?


Do you humble yourself when wise and knowledgeable people advise you? Do you resent instructions? Never think you are above rebuke, instructions, and correction. Stop complaining that things are not working for you.


Things are not working for you because you hate instructions. You are not disciplined. You think your money, educational certificates, and temporal assets make you untouchable. 

Haven’t you seen and heard wealthy people becoming broke within seconds? Haven’t you seen and heard healthy people die within seconds? If only these people could heed the wise people's instructions, they would not have died or become poor.


There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Proverbs 14:12 KJV

Do not be wise in your own eyes. Humble yourself and learn from others. In my previous article, I emphasized about mentorship. Kindly read that article for a more profound revelation.


You are failing because you think no one can advise you. You think you are the master of yourself. You are too proud to be counselled and instructed. As far as you live in this corrupt flesh and dark world, you cannot be right all the time. You need the counsel of others.


However, compare the counsels and instructions you receive from others with the Holy Bible. If the counsels agree with the Holy Bible, follow it. If the instructions challenge the Holy Bible, reject it. You will stop complaining if you humble yourself and accept the instructions and rebukes of wise people.



The seed of an erroneous mindset

the power of the mind

Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.

1 Corinthians 15:33 KJV

One thing about our mind is that it controls almost every organ of our body. The information you receive can upgrade or downgrade you. Some people fail because of corrupt philosophies (ideologies and cultures) they receive in their homes, schools, friends, church, and media.


Some people believe that men are liars, so they treat men like trash. Some people, too, believe that women are cheaters, so they treat them like trash. Some people’s experiences have created a toxic philosophy in their souls.


Because of the past bitter experiences and erroneous ideologies received from parents, friends, media, and the internet, they cannot rise. Until you change your faulty mindset, you will remain in the dark position.


Stop complaining and start complying! Stop blaming others for your failure. Your corrupt mindset and bitter experience are the cause of your failure. Who are your friends? What information are you receiving at home, school, church, in the media, environment, internet, and social gatherings?


You will keep crawling until you unlearn the bad ideologies and align with the knowledge engrafted in the Holy Bible (meditate on John 8:32). The fact that many people have accepted something does not mean it is right.


For instance, the Holy Bible frowns on lesbianism, gay, bestiality, transgender, and queer (see Romans 1:18-32, Genesis 13:13;18:20-32). Compare every philosophy with the Holy Bible. If the philosophy agrees with the Holy Bible, follow it. However, if it challenges the Holy Bible, reject it.


It doesn’t matter who is sharing that philosophy. As far as it challenges the Holy Bible, reject it. Like a pig, it doesn’t matter what country it is in. You can dress the pig and spray the best perfume on the pig.


It would jump into a dirty environment if it founds one! One reason the pig delights in a filthy environment is its erroneous mindset. What erroneous mindset have you carried from your family, friends, school, strange books, videos, media, and the internet?


Stop complaining that things are not working. It's your erroneous mindset! The corrupt philosophy is empowering you to make a wrong decision. Your attitude is making you lose. Change your mindset with the Word of God (the Holy Bible).


Like the pig, it delights in filthy places because that is its mindset. Are you acting like a pig? Remember, it doesn’t matter what perfume and dress you put on the pig. Its faulty mindset will force it to bathe in filthy places!


Are you holding onto the bitter experience? Disconnect from the corrupt people, media, and environment. You will advance when you change your mindset and remove the bitter experience. Stop complaining and start complying!



The seed of imbalance

Time is a precious asset. I do not joke with time because I cannot regain it. Once lost, it is lost forever! What do you spend your time on? Is it television, social media, games, debates, football, long-hour seasonal movies, parties, funerals, and unnecessary social gatherings?


Get me right. I am not stating that you shouldn’t have fun. I am stating that do not spend too much time on things that will not bring you profit. As humans, we sometimes become tired, depressed, and stressed.


In this season, we must have fun (rest). Some people watch movies, play games, and do many things to release stress. However, overdoing these things can lead to poverty (meditate on Proverbs 6:10-11;20:13).


Spending too much time on television watching unnecessary programs will limit you. Thousands of television stations fight for our attention. If you are not wise, you will spend the whole day on the television watching unprofitable programs.


Spending too much time on seasonal movies can hinder your progress. Spending too much time on your phone can affect you. Today, people spend hours on social media doing unnecessary things!


Some people attend every social gathering. They join social events when they hear of any announcement in town. Some, too, debate about movie stars, football celebrities, and all kinds of celebrities!


I know some guys who spend hours debating about football clubs and players. They debate as if they are the ones paying the football clubs and players. Some people move from house to gossiping.


As stated, some people attend every social event. As soon as they hear of an event, they invite themselves. You don’t have to send them invitation cards. They will ensure they invite themselves and, if possible, invite others.


How can you become resourceful with this lifestyle? Time is a precious asset. Check your schedules. How do you spend your time? Are you spending hours on games, movies, and social media?


Are you doing unprofitable things with your electronic device? Stop complaining and start complying! Once in a while, you can have fun. However, do not overuse time because time is money.


Time is life. Time is power. Time is an intangible resource. I do not joke with time. I know when to rest, work, and have fun. Position yourself well. Stop blaming the devil. 

Stop blaming others for your failure. Utilize time for profitable activities. God has given everyone twenty-four hours a day. Even animals know how to use time. It is up to you to use the time profitably.

  • Do you know that goats, sheep, cows, elephants, and deer sleep for a maximum of four hours per night?
  • Do you know that dogs and cats sleep for a maximum of twelve hours daily?

The animals that sleep the most are koalas, pythons, and tigers. They can sleep for over eighteen hours daily! Among the animals, ants have sleeping habits similar to those of humans. Ant can rest for five to seven hours a day.


On average, we can rest for at least three hours per day. Some recommend that we sleep (rest) for a maximum of seven hours. Don’t sleep like a cat, dog, or python. Hard work will not kill you. Work hard and work smart.


The body and mind will adjust. However, rest when tired! The more you use the time profitably, the more you will stop complaining. This is the fourth introduction.
