Look at the Israelites in Numbers 16, all the people that joined Korah to murmur and complain were the ones that the ground opened up and swallowed them. When you murmur and complain, you are burying yourself alive. You have concluded in your heart that there is nothing you can do or no one can help you. Whatever you continually complain about you have hanged a signboard written shutdown over that area. Nothing will work. Your body will shut down. Your mind will shut down as well.

I have praised my way out of ulcer pains. The pain came especially when I was not joyful. It came when I was worried about certain things to do. I mean it was legitimate worries. But the devil does not care why you worry as long as he can use it against you. So I went to a secluded place to pray about it but God said I should just praise him and be joyful. So I did that but the pain was still there. I did not give in to the pains. As I was walking back to my hostel, I was greeting people, laughing with people and being happy more than people who were healthier than me. When I woke up the next morning, it was gone. It could not stay. The problem you are facing, you will see them no more if you will just stop worrying and start being joyful and full of praise.
