Topic: The Power Of Being Positive
Scripture: Watch Your Mouth – Part 2 Proverbs 23:7 (AMPC)
Many years ago, I was an extremely negative person. My whole philosophy was this: “If you don’t expect anything good to happen, then you won’t be disappointed when it doesn’t.” So many devastating things had happened to me over the years, I was afraid to believe anything good might happen to me. Since my thoughts were all negative, so was my mouth; therefore, so was my life.
Perhaps you’re like I was. You’re avoiding hope to protect yourself from being hurt. This type of behavior sets up a negative lifestyle. Everything becomes negative because your thoughts are negative.
When I really began to study the Word and to trust God to restore me, one of the first things I realized was that the negativism had to go. And the longer I serve God, the more I realize the tremendous power in being positive in my thoughts and words.
Our actions are a direct result of our thoughts. A negative mind will result in a negative life. But if we renew our mind according to God’s Word, we will, as Romans 12:2 promises, prove in our experience the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Prayer Starter: Lord Jesus, I want to be a more positive person. Help me renew my mind and to line up my thoughts with your thoughts! In Your name I pray, amen.
