Stop Grumbling and Start Complying - 3


biblical ways to become successful


The bitter woman

I knew a married woman who complained that her parent did not take care of her when she was young. This woman had two children with her husband. She stayed home while her husband worked.

This woman depended on her husband for basic needs and wants. Her husband was a hardworking man. He did his best to provide for the family. However, the woman chose not to work.

She decided to complain bitterly of her parents’ “irresponsibility” daily. She believed that if her parents cared for her while she was young, she would be working to support her husband. I could see her husband's frustration as he had to close late to provide for her wife and children. The last time I saw this woman, she sold bottled water and soft drinks.


The key of responsibility

Many people complain because they do not take responsibility. Like the married woman who complained that her parents did not care for her. She believed that if her parents had sent her to school or placed her in a vocational institution, she could help her husband.

The woman might be right because parents are responsible for their child’s welfare. However, we shouldn’t blame our parents for neglecting us. We have a mind of our own. The fact that your parent did not care for you does not mean you shouldn’t do anything for yourself.

You have what it takes to become valuable. Maybe the government is not creating a pleasant environment for jobs. Do not blame the government for their irresponsibility. Develop strategies that can help you become valuable.

Although the government has a role in our growth, we shouldn’t depend on the government for prosperity. We have what it takes to become valuable. When you decide that your destiny rests in your hands, you will do “anything” to become successful.

Anything in the context of this article does not mean doing illegal jobs. Anything in the context of this article does not mean joining demonic groups to become prosperous. Anything in the context of this article means doing the right thing to become successful.

Analyze successful people. You will see that they are responsible. It is only irresponsible people who blame others for their failure. God has given every man twenty-four hours a day to do something meaningful.

It doesn’t matter what continent you are in. You have twenty hours a day to do something with your life. God has not given the rich thirty hours a day. Neither has God given the “poor” ten hours a day.

Everyone has twenty-four hours a day. It is time to take your destiny into your hands. God has designed a precious and glorious destiny. It is up to you to search for that assignment and fulfill it.

Numerous successful people have no one to take care of them. However, they took responsibility. They did not complain. They complied and succeeded. Several people came from glorious homes.

However, they failed to take responsibility. Because of their irresponsibility, they failed. Stop complaining that your parents, siblings, government, and friends have ignored you. Start complying!

Take responsibility! When you take responsibility, the wise ones will help you. Complaining is a waste of time, energy, and resources. Utilise the time, energy, and resources, you will use to complain to pursue your assignment.

Nature will help you when you stop complaining. The forces of the universe will support you when you comply. However, when you keep complaining, you will get complainers who will help you swim in the sea of failure.

Check the lives of complainers. You will see that they are full of depression, fear, and insecurity. Complainers will help you blame others for your failure. Complainers will jeopardize your life. Complainers do not end well, so don’t become one with them!

God knows how and when to punish irresponsible parents, families, and the government. Let God take revenge (meditate on Romans 12:9). Take responsibility, and you will become successful. Are you complaining or complying?


The three master keys

biblical ways to become successful

Aside from taking responsibility, you must be diligent, sacrificial, and disciplined. These three master keys will take you high regardless of environment and people. I would not have reached this level if I ignored these three master keys. The Holy Bible declares that diligence increases productivity.


He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.

Proverbs 10:4 KJV

The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of every one that is hasty only to want.

Proverbs 21:5 KJV

Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.

Proverbs 22:29 KJV

Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure

2 Peter 1:10 KJV

I encourage you to download and read my book, The Uncommon Wisdom Keys, and other wisdom-related books for more profound revelations. The books are free on my blog. Are you determined to succeed?

If you are determined and desperate to succeed, enemies cannot stop you. One thing I have observed about the Nigerians I have encountered is their diligence. Almost all the Nigerians I have encountered are determined to succeed! They show in their character and actions that they want to do business!


The spirit of some African brothers

I remember meeting a Nigerian who told me he would help me succeed with my books. He said he would create a professional video for me, design professional book covers, and promote me on his channels.

He even told me he would rent the best video cameras with his money and do everything for me at his cost! I told myself, this man will do these for me for free? I reasoned in my chambers and decided not to work with him because I felt uncomfortable with his extreme desperation to make me rich in a hasty way.

I could see from his eyes and actions that he was serious, desperate, and determined regarding business. However, he was so desperate to make me “succeed!” I want to succeed. However, his passion to make me “succeed” was greater than mine!

I felt something was wrong with his passion for making me rich, so I put it on hold. In my encounter with Nigerians, I noticed they are incredibly “greedy” regarding business. They are ready to pay the price to do business!

I also know some Ghanaians (friends) who are determined, desperate, and passionate to succeed in business. However, the Nigerians I have encountered have a strong entrepreneurial spirit. They are ready to succeed!

I knew a man who used to sell food in a wheelbarrow. He placed the food in the wheelbarrow and walked in the street with the wheelbarrow! This man was a Nigerian! He did not care about the country he found himself.

He was determined to succeed in Ghana! The last time I saw him, he was preaching with two large speakers in the street. I could see his determination to succeed in Ghana. I think most Nigerians see Ghana as one of the promised lands to make a profit, so they utilize their time, energy, and resources for business when they come to Ghana.


Diligence is one of the master keys.

biblical ways to become successful

Diligence is one of the master keys to success. As the Holy Bible states, a diligent vessel will become wealthy (see Proverbs 10:4; 21:5; 22:9). Some people have little or no fear of God. However, their diligent spirit makes them shine.

Stop complaining and start complying! I have written over seventy books by God's grace because of diligence. I sacrifice my time, energy, and resources to write and publish. Every work demands diligence, discipline, and sacrifice!

There is nothing like luck in ministry, business, and success. Luck comes to those who are prepared. Luck works for those who utilize the grace of God. You must be determined to succeed!

When you are determined to succeed, it creates a strong aura that resists and opposes enemies of progress. Diligence, discipline, and sacrifice are the master keys to breaking the chains of poverty, shame, and rejection.

People may reject you. However, your diligence, discipline, and sacrifice will open doors for you. I sacrifice my time for ministry work and writing. While people are sleeping, I will be using that time to work.

It has become part of me! I rarely sleep in the middle of the night! No one tells me to rise, pray, and work. It’s my life. Although I rest when tired, I don’t play with time. I use time profitably. Stop complaining. Use your time and mind profitably.

Know when to work and rest (pleasure). You will stop complaining when you become diligent, disciplined, and sacrificial. If you are diligent, disciplined, and sacrificial, you will not get the time to respond to enemies who destructively criticize and oppose you. Your mind and body will be focused on essential things to the extent that you will not have the time for gossip, unnecessary things, and unimportant issues.

  • Are you focused on the assignment?
  • Are you doing the right thing with your precious time, energy, and resources?
  • Are you wasting time on unprofitable things?

Stop complaining and start complying!


The power of mentorship

how to become valuable

Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.

Proverbs 11:14 KJV

Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors they are established.

Proverbs 15:22 KJV

For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counsellors there is safety.

Proverbs 24:6 KJV

We must know in life that we are limited in wisdom and power. God is the only one who is omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient. We don’t know everything. That is why we need others to help us accomplish specific tasks.

You need the wisdom of successful people to become successful. It doesn’t matter how knowledgeable you are; you don’t know everything. This is one reason you need mentorship. I admit that I don’t know everything.

I learn from others. Even if the person is a child and he knows what I don’t know, I will learn from him! You are failing because you are not humble enough to learn from others. The Holy Bible states that there is safety in the multitude of counselors (Proverbs 11:14;15:22;24:6).

In other words, experts, professionals, and wise and knowledgeable people can help you become the vessel you desire. Check the vessels God used. A significant number of them had mentors and spiritual fathers.

  • Jethro mentored Moses.
  • Apostle Paul mentored Timothy and several disciples of Christ Jesus
  • Apostle Paul submitted to the counsels of the twelve Apostles
  • Prophet Elijah mentored Prophet Elisha
  • Abraham mentored Isaac
  • Isaac mentored Jacob and Essau
  • Nathan mentored David
  • Eli mentored Samuel

The list goes on. It doesn’t matter what path you want to tread. People have trod that path. Some failed, while some succeeded. It will be wise not to repeat the mistake of those who tread on the path you want to tread.

In the same way, it will be wise to learn from the successful people who have trod on the path you want to tread. For instance, assuming you want to become a minister of God. We have Apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers in the ministry.

Within this five-fold ministry, we have sub-sections. Some ministers do ministry locally and internationally. Some ministers, too, pastor local congregations and churches in other countries. Some ministers train ministers in theological and bible schools.

Some, too, are in deliverance ministries. Some ministers are on television, radio, and online. Some, too, are into miracles and power ministries. Some ministers are church planters. You must know your calling and where the Holy Spirit has sent you.

This way, you will know which successful minister to follow and receive instruction from. Every course you want to pursue, there are people on the path. Search for the right vessel. Watch his videos.

Listen to his tapes and read his books. The internet has become an excellent channel for discovering and following the right mentor. It is not compulsory to meet the mentor one on one. If you have the time, energy, and resources to meet the mentor, that’s great.

However, you can sit in the comfort of your home and connect with the mentor's videos, tapes, and books. You learn from him by reading his books and connecting with his materials. However, be prayerful when choosing a mentor.

Some people have failed because they chose the wrong mentor. Some, too, have succeeded because they chose the right mentor. Be led by the Holy Spirit before choosing a spiritual leader (mentor).

As stated at the beginning of the article, we don’t know everything. You need the knowledge of a successful vessel to become successful. My definition of success may differ from your definition.

However, in my understanding, success means discovering your assignment and fulfilling it to the fullest. Some people are experts in law, business, medicine, ministry, Bible, theology, music, money, and leadership.

Locate a successful vessel and learn from that vessel (mentor). Read his credible biographies, watch his videos, and connect with his materials. Stop complaining and start complying. Apostle Paul stated that we should follow him as he follows Christ Jesus.


Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.

1 Corinthians 11:1 KJV

  • Who are you following?
  • Who is mentoring you?
  • Who do you submit to?

Reading books, listening to tapes, and watching videos of successful people are some ways of submitting and following. When you obey the instructions in a vessel's books, videos, and tape, you are “submitting” to the person (mentor).

Remember, the Holy Spirit is the best mentor. However, it will help if you get a human vessel to follow because it is biblical. I encourage you to download and read my series of books on the Holy Spirit. It’s a mentorship of the Holy Spirit. The books are free on my blog. You will stop complaining when a successful mentor enters your life.


The key of self-worth

Knowing who you are determines your success. Do you know that we are seated with Christ Jesus in the heavenly places? Let’s find out from the Holy Bible.


when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

Ephesians 2:5-6 KJV

You complain because you don’t know who you are in Christ Jesus. Satan and his minions dominate people who are ignorant of their divine position. Know who you are in Christ Jesus and exercise power and authority over the enemy.

Chasing false prophets and spiritual leaders will not solve the problem. Greater is He (Christ Jesus) that is you than the one in this world!


Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

1 John 4:4 KJV

Assuming your father is the president of your country. Won’t you be happy? The position of your father will place you on a high pedestal. People will submit to you because of your father. In the same way, you (Christian believer) have power over every force.

Our Father is God Almighty (Yahweh). The moment you become born again, you become a child of God Almighty (Christ Jesus). Being born again means you have repented from your sins and accepted Christ Jesus as your Savior and Lord of your life.

You can read my book, Who is Christian Believer, for more profound revelation. The book is free on my blog. The devil and his cohorts torment people who are ignorant of their spiritual heritage.

Stop complaining and start complying! You are a royal priest in the spiritual realm (meditate on 1 Peter 2:9). Call on the name of Christ Jesus in times of affliction. Call on the name of Christ Jesus when demons try to oppress, depress, suppress, and possess you.

When you rebuke the devil using the name of Christ Jesus, it will flee! Know your authority in Christ Jesus. You are above principalities, dominions, powers, and spiritual hosts of darkness in high places.

Stop complaining about the demonic dreams and demonic attacks. Take authority as a child of God. When you call on Christ Jesus, the occultic powers, witches, forces of darkness, and enemies will bow.

I encourage you to download and read my series of books for more profound revelation about enemies and how you can dominate them. The books are free on my blog. Do you know who you are in Christ Jesus?

Do you know that Christ Jesus is above every power? Do you know that Christ Jesus is God Almighty? Stop complaining and start complying. Surrender your life to Christ Jesus and use the Word (the Holy Bible) to dominate the wickedness of the wicked!


The wisdom of the Holy Spirit

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

James 1:5-8 KJV  

As stated in the previous point, we don’t know everything. There are times when wise, knowledgeable professionals and experts’ wisdom fails. At this stage, we need superior knowledge.

You need the uncommon wisdom of the Holy Spirit to work out the unstoppable problems people cannot solve. You might have tried your best. However, to no avail. Can I present to you that some issues demand the wisdom of the Holy Spirit?

The Holy Spirit is the supplier of wisdom. When you ask in faith, He will give you the wisdom to solve complex problems. There is no problem that the Holy Spirit cannot solve. You have to become one with the Holy Spirit.

I encourage you to download and read my series of books on the Holy Spirit. These books will help you align with the wisdom of the Holy Spirit. You can also download and read my book, How to Receive the Anointing of Wisdom, for more profound revelations.

The books are free on my blog. We are limited in wisdom, understanding, and knowledge. We cannot solve every problem. We must grow in wisdom, power, and understanding. This is one reason Christ Jesus grew in wisdom when He walked on earth as a man (see Luke 2:40).

Do you know why the president has ministers and members of parliaments? The president needs these competent people to help him make critical decisions. The president is the overall boss. However, he does not know everything.

This is one reason he appoints ministers to manage different sectors of the economy. In the same way, you don’t know everything. You need superior knowledge. The best person to supply you with uncommon wisdom is the Holy Spirit.

Do you know that the books and articles you see online with my name (Duodu Henry Appiakorang) came through the Holy Spirit? When I pray in tongues, the Holy Spirit gives me ideas!

You may not understand how the Holy Spirit gives me ideas. However, as I pray in the Spirit and study the Holy Bible, the Holy Spirit whispers the ideas to me. When I receive the ideas, I write them.

That is how I have written over seventy books and many articles. It is by the grace of God. However, I discipline myself and work hard to write and publish books and articles. You can download and read my books, How I Wrote Over 40 Books and Over 350 Articles Within 3 Years, and How to Write and Publish Books for more profound revelation.

The books are free on my blog. God has given us the grace. However, we must discipline ourselves and work hard. The Holy Spirit does not work with lazy people. He works with diligent, disciplined, and sacrificial people.

These three virtues are the wisdom of the Holy Spirit. You might think people become great and profitable by chance. That’s a lie! It takes diligence, discipline, and sacrifice to become a valuable person.

The Holy Spirit will tell you to be diligent, disciplined, and sacrificial to become productive. That’s wisdom! Grace is available to all. However, it takes the wisdom of the Holy Spirit to make things happen.

Stop complaining and start complying! Pray for wisdom. Ask in faith. You will stop complaining when the Holy Spirit anoints you with wisdom. I will continue in the next article. Kindly share the link to this article so others can receive the knowledge that brings deliverance. You can read my previous article related to this article for more profound revelations.
