ODM DAILY 11 August 2022 – THE SECRET OF A QUIET LIFE EVEN ON THE BATTLE FRONT!
TOPIC: THE SECRET OF A QUIET LIFE EVEN ON THE BATTLE FRONT!
Successful people have two things on their lips, “Smile and silence.” Smile can solve problems, while silence can avoid problems. Sugar and salt may be mixed together, but ants reject the salt and carry away only the sugar.
Select the right people in life and make your life better and sweeter. If you failed to achieve your dreams immediately, stop getting discouraged; change your ways, not your Creator.
Remember, trees change their leaves, not their roots. You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks at you. That means there are times you IGNORE some battles, no matter how painful they are. Haters will see you walking on water and say it is because you can’t swim. Even if you dance on water, your enemies will accuse you of raising dust.
Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your own hands. Today’s scripture Vs. 11 says: “And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you.” Yes! Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your own hands till you retire to eat the fruit of your labour! Don’t ever wrestle with a pig. You’ll both get dirty, but the pig will enjoy it. Let these words of wisdom guide you today!
PRAYER POINTS: Take Song 1: Tis so sweet to trust… In your own words, pray about today’s word as led now. I receive GRACE to be quiet, even in the warfront of life! Silence can avoid many problems! Lord, I receive GRACE to be SILENT even when provoked by evil men/women. A wise man or woman does not fight every battle! I receive GRACE to choose my battles from this day in Jesus name.

His approval is all I seek. Pray in Tongues and declare that you will ignore PIGS because you are an EAGLE! Pray about today as led now.
