Fix your focus on glorifying God!
Proverbs 18:21 says:
The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.
Instead of spending the next months and years complaining (May I remind you where that has gotten God's people in the past?), let's use our tongues to praise God and further His kingdom. This is not about our opinions, this is about how we are not fighting against flesh and blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.
As Christians we win, regardless. God's Holy Spirit lives in us, the enemy is under our feet, and we are more than conqueror's ~ always. Let's serve God by honoring Him, by being the salt to this land and lights to this dark world. Otherwise, we take a step down from the heavenly places we have been seated in and become salt without savor and dimmed lights.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in Heaven. Matthew 5:16
