- You can’t see the answer looking at the problem! Yes the problem is right there in front of you but if that’s what you’re focused on, you will be constantly frustrated. You must focus on what God has said about the problem and the answer He has provided. What you focus on is the direction in which you will be led.
This is so important because you can’t think negatively and expect positive results. As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. [Proverbs 23:7]
2- You will never influence the world by living like it! If our lives and lifestyles are no different than our unsaved neighbors, why on earth would they want to be like us? If we’re just as sick, just as poor, just as depressed, just as discouraged as they are, this isn’t the witness we’re to be.
We have the Holy Spirit of God living in us. We are the head and not the tail, above and not beneath. We are more than conquerors! We have the victory that overcomes the world – our faith! [I John 5:4] Yes we have all of this but most Christians are not walking in the fullness of what God has given them. This needs to change so that we can show forth the goodness of our Father God and cause the unsaved to want Jesus as their Lord and Savior! [Romans 2:4]
3- A bad attitude is like a flat tire; you won’t go anywhere until you change it! Someone once said that attitude determines altitude. This is so true. Nobody likes being around someone with a bad attitude. You have to watch everything you say or they’ll get offended and then you can have war on your hands. Let’s be people of a sweet attitude and let words of blessing and encouragement come out of our mouths. Not only will this bless the other person but it’ll bless you as well!
