A Positive Attitude Is Worth More Then Money
Philippians 4:13 (NASB)
13 I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
There are many believers who are stuck in a bad place in their life
and live defeated lives because they failed to use on of their most valuable assests.
A free asset that has been overlooked by many. A positive attitude.
Many Christians spend tons of time going to church and force themselves
to perform “good works” seeking to have a break-through in their
circumstances but it never happens because faith and a bad attitude don’t
hand out together. Many times depression sets in because of a negative
attitude that is generated by the “works of the flesh”. Gal5:19-21
A positive attitude is a “faith based” positive mindset that is rooted
in the truth and faith in God’s promises. Look here: Hebrews 11:1 (NASB)
1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things
not seen. A positive attitude persists to trust in God no matter what
circumstances dictate and chooses to believe the positive outcome of
every situation.(Romans 8:28) Romans 8:28 (NASB)
28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good
to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
Where is the Source Of Attitude
Attitude can’t be found outside of you. Attitude comes from within us.
Unfortunately, the average person in our sociaty hears the word “no”
on the average of 40,000 times. Our positive or negetive attitude lives
in our mind. Thats the “good news”, we all have the power to change our
minds This is changing our mind such that it is like the “mindset of the
Lord Jesus Christ.When you become a Christian by obeying the gospel of
Christ(Romans 1:16), you have the transforming power of the Spirit of
God to “transform your mind”.Romans 12:1-2
How Do You Change Your Attitude?
Since we have the powerof God available to change our minds daily,We can change our
thoughts that change our feelings or emotions. A good idea is to
go to bed with positive thouhts and awake in the morning start telling
your mind what’s positive what your prevailing thought for the day will
be.This is a thought i use from Scripture. Ps. 118:24. “This is the day
the Lord has made and we will rejoice in it” or ps 23:1 (The Lord is my Shepherd and
i will not be in need)
Why Have A Positive Attitude?
Since we can’t change others, the only thing we have is our attitude.Roberta Flack
once said: “that the situation that you live in don’t have to live in you”. .Life’s
situations are sometimes good, sometimes bad. and sometimes just ok. As a child of God we
must follow Pauls secret to a positive attitude in any situation so that situation
will not live in us.
Here is the secret to having a positive attitude:
Philippians 4:11-13 (NASB)
11 Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.(attitude has little to do with circumstances)
12 I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity;(attitudes can change just like circumstances)
in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need.(the secret to a positive)
13 I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.(Attitude source of positiveness)
Philippians 4:4 (NASB)
4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!
