Topic: The 90/10 Principle: Practical Application
(James 1:12-20; Ephesians 4:26-27).
Please refer to yesterday’s devotional encounter. Heaven will drop a few practical hints to turn you from pressure to pleasure! If someone says something negative about you, do not be a sponge. Let the attack roll off like water on glass. You do not have to let the negative comment affect you. React properly and it will not ruin your day. A wrong action could result in losing a friend, being fired, getting stressed up, etc. Proverbs 15:1a says: “a soft answer turns away wrath.”
How do you react if someone annoys you in a traffic jam or stress crops up in a bus? Lose your temper? Pound the steering wheel? Curse? Shout up? Reply to every statement? Does your blood pressure shoot up? Have you forgotten that you have just one life and that it’s better you are late to work or home than become the Late? Do you know that just one driver in a traffic jam sent by satan can destroy your joy?Do you know that satn can use one of your colleagues in your office to steal your joy? Please always remember the 90/10 principle! If you have no job or you just lost a relative or you lost a relationship (courtship or even marriage), what do you do?
Lose your sleep! Go on drugs? Go on alcohol? Pity yourself? Get irritated or shout at everyone around? Get depressed? No! No! No! Use the time spent on worrying to look for another job. Get a prayer partner in crisis! Call us –ODM lines! If one relationship breaks, God can raise a million others. Spend time staying around positive people! You can decie to serve God the more by it. Whatever happens, avoid worrying and stress! Laugh often and be positive! Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% of your reaction.
You will not fail God or your generation! I see you ending this year with a great testimony as an EVIDENCE that your God is not a liar even as you prepare for the 14-day fasting program starting from July 9th-22nd, 2017. Peace!
