FROM THE PULPIT: Cast out your life’s hindrances

Published: Thursday, January 17, 2013 at 04:30 PM.

Many people blame God for their failures and miseries. Stop complaining against God, stop playing with the devil and start walking with God.

Ways to count your blessings and conquer failures are as follows.

•Obey the Lord’s commandments diligently.

Sorry, there’s no alternative, short route. It is not enough to wear a cross around your neck and hear or read His commandments. Blessings are promised for those who put the gospel into action.

You may be highly qualified, you may have a thousand medals and certificates, you may be sitting in the best country with a plum job. All this amounts to nothing without the knowledge of God and the Bible. Read Deuteronomy 4:6.

When you lack Biblical knowledge, you are bound to make mistakes, so beware. Proverbs 2:6 says, "For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding."

•Accept that disobedience brings failures.
