Doing what you have to do waylays all the excuses one may come up about why something is the way it is. Our world today and the culture is more about complaining than doing. I've found that many would rather complain than to step forward and do something about anything. If people are not willing to do what they have to do, especially when they know what to do, then they do not have the right to complain.
People's reasons for something also becomes their excuses for the same thing. Don't get me wrong, some reasons are very valid and extreme, but not all. Many times the reasons people use are to justify themselves and their behavior, but these same reasons also becomes their excuses for not doing what they needed to do. For some it's just easier for them to complain about something than it is to do what they have to or need to do. If this is the case, then why complain. By not doing what they have to do or need to do they forfeit their right to complain it about to anyone.
People that are not willing to do what they have to do have no right to complain about anything. The only time one may be justified of complaining is only after they have done whatever it was they needed to do. Now with that said, this is the only time that constitutes a legitimate complaint, but they also continue doing what they have to do while they complain.
And so it is with God. Many people would rather complain about what God does or doesn't do, not realizing that a lot of what God does or doesn't do resides with them and doing what they have to do. Even if Christians are not willing to do what they have to do in order for their lives to be pleasing to God, then again, they too have no right to complain. They forfeit that right. God will do what He says He would, but people are different. They say they're going to do something but never get around to doing it and yet they constantly complain. And then here comes the excuses. Oops I mean reasons of justification why they didn't do something.
One thing about God is that you can always trust that He will do what He says He will do, no questions asked. But people on the other hand still would rather complain about God than to do what He is asking them to do. However, they do not realize that by complaining and not doing anything they have no right to complain about not seeing the blessings of God manifest in their own lives.
The only way for God to bless His people is for them to do what they must do in order for Him to have the freedom to bless them. And what people have to do or need to do is to obey His commands and follow in the footsteps of Jesus. This means that by doing whatever it is they need to do or even have to do God will do for them just as He did for Jesus. God will do for those who follow closely in the footsteps of His Son Jesus. In other words being a true disciple of Christ will waylay a lot of the complaining among God's people.
