I hope you are doing well and in the best of health. The Lord has been
speaking to my heart concerning having a positive attitude and outlook on
life. I wasn't planning on writing a message like this, but I will follow
God's leading and I'm sure the end result will be a blessing.
Glory to God.
Having a negative attitude and worrying about certain things in life is a
big problem that many of us deal with. There is not one person in life
that does not have problems, but the difference between the one who
overcomes and the one who doesn't is how they handle the situation. Have
faith in God and believe that He has your best interest in mind. He never
promised life would be without problems, but God did promise that He would
never leave our side and that every one of our needs would be met.
(Hebrews 13:5) (Psalm 145:15-16)
Always try to have a positive outlook when a problem comes your way. If
you lost your job, think of it in a positive way and let God know that you
are trusting in Him for a better position of employment. Being negative
when a problem occurs will hinder God's power because we by our pessimism
are in essence saying to God, "You cannot help me in this situation." The
Bible says that God knows what we need even before we ask Him, so have a
positive attitude and believe the Lord will be with you and bless you no
matter how hopeless the situation may seem. (Matthew 6:8)
Don't worry about anything. God has the Earth hanging in space with
nothing holding it except the word of God. He commands the sun to shine
by day and the moon to give light by night. He supplies the animals with
food and the grass with water. How much more valuable are you to the Lord
than these? Don't worry about anything but instead put your trust and
faith in God and watch Him meet your every need.
I am sure you have heard this saying many times, "If life hands you
lemons, then make lemonade." I encourage you to take on this mentality.
Do the best you can in your present circumstance without murmuring and
complaining but in faith believing that God will meet your needs and pull
you out of whatever situation that you may be facing.
It is so important that we always have a positive attitude. There are
many things that happen to us in life that the enemy would love to use in
order for us to be pessimistic and worry about, but never give that
defeated foe the satisfaction. Jesus declares that satan is the father of
lies (John 8:44) so whatever the enemy is trying to make you believe, I
want you to know the opposite of what satan says is the truth.
If satan tells you that God doesn't love you, I want you to know that God
does Love You. (John 3:16) (Jeremiah 31:3)
If satan tells you that you will never get out of debt, I want you to know
that you will get out of debt. (Deuteronomy 28:13) (Deuteronomy 8:18)
If satan tells you that you will never be healed of that sickness or
disease, I want you to know that will be healed by the power of Jesus
Christ our Lord. (Exodus 15:26) (Isaiah 53:5)
Be encouraged and keep a positive attitude and outlook on life. I want
you to Believe and keep in mind that God is able to do exceedingly
abundantly above all that you can ask or even think. (Ephesians 3:20)
Be encouraged, smile, tell God that you are trusting in Him and you will
see God supernaturally bless you and get you out of whatever situation
that has you worried. All God is looking for is your faith and positive
attitude that God can meet your needs. (Hebrews 11:6)
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
Deuteronomy 30:19 "I call heaven and earth to record this day against you,
that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore
choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live."
Psalm 145:14-19 "The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all
those that be bowed down. The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest
them their meat in due season. Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest
the desire of every living thing. The LORD is righteous in all his ways,
and holy in all his works. The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon
him, to all that call upon him in truth. He will fulfil the desire of them
that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them."
Hebrews 11:6 "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he
that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of
them that diligently seek him."
1 Thessalonians 5:18 "In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of
God in Christ Jesus concerning you."
All scriptures can be found in the King James Version.
I thank the Lord for His leading and hope you are encouraged by this
message. To God belongs all the glory, honor and praise.
