THEME: RIGHT ATTITUDE PRINCIPLES
SCRIPTURE: “You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had” (Philippians 2:5 NLT).
No one can make you have a positive attitude, you are the only one who can make that decision. Remember that God’s Word is the foundation of a right mental attitude. Study these principles and allow them to become strong on the inside of you.
1. A right mental attitude is more than wishful thinking. It is actually facing each day with a positive expectancy based on God’s Word.
2. A right mental attitude is having a proper understanding of the problems you face, their source, and knowing how to approach them with God’s Word. You need to know your enemy and how he operates. You need to know his weaknesses. I’ll tell you two of them:
(a) He cannot stand it when you praise Jesus
(b) He cannot stand the Word of God
He has no refuge from them. He has to flee from them. He cannot tolerate either.
3. A right mental attitude enables you to possess peace, calmness, self-control and the determination to win no matter how difficult your situation may seem.
4. A right mental attitude demands that you drive out all negatives from your consciousness and focus on God’s Word.
Confession: I choose to have a good attitude and expect the best today knowing that God is good and He is for me.
