Attitude Change can bring Positive Results
The success or failures in our life are not based on talents, but our determination. When we know who we are in Christ Jesus, we can then identify that our victory is already established in our DNA. When we build our lives from the foundation that Jesus Christ is the Son of God (Matt. 16:16), and we are a member of the body of Christ (Romans 12:5) there should be no victim mentality. Does the body of Christ know sickness, disease, poverty, depression, or any negative issues? Does our Heavenly Father want His children to be victims of fear?
Jesus said, "I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not be walking in the dark, but will have the Light which is Life" (John 8:12). He also said, "You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden" (Matt. 5:15).
David wrote in Psalm 51:10, "Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right, persevering, and steadfast spirit within me."
Our heavenly Father created time to be our surroundings bringing changes with the seasons. Each change has the potential of growing and maturing in Christ to be the sons of God. However, at the heart of creating man, God placed His identity, His DNA. "He has made everything beautiful in its time. He also has planted eternity (God identity) in men's hearts and minds" (Eccl. 3:11). Even when we stumble and go in the wrong direction, God made sure that His identity, character, and nature were already established. "Before I formed you in the womb I knew [and] approved of you [as My chosen instrument], and before you were born I separated and set you apart, consecrating you; [and] I appointed you as a prophet to the nations" (Jeremiah 1:5).
Paul writes to the Philippians, "Do all things without murmurings and disputing: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world" (Phil. 2:14-15).
In Ephesians 6, Paul gives us the wisdom of how to change our attitude for positive results in our world. We read, "Be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides].Put on God's whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil (crooked, perverse, and evils in the world)."
Put on the WHOLE ARMOR:
Stand firm, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist.
Make sure the breastplate of righteousness and integrity is in place over your heart.
Where ever you go, be prepared and ready to release the Gospel of forgiveness and peace.
With your left hand, have the shield of faith in front of you at all times, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of negative warfare that try to come at you.
The helmet of your salvation must always be on your head taking captive every thought to be in obedience with the mind of Christ, for it is Christ Jesus who is the head of the body.
With your right hand, lift up high the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
With the whole armor of God on, you then pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. This is where the enemy will try to attack. Ask yourself how Jesus prayed in the Spirit to the Father. Remember that it is out of the heart the mouth speaks having the power of life or death. It is the joy of the Lord that gives us strength in the midst of our trials and tribulations.
Having the right spirit with the right determination will release the victory of Christ in you, and not the victim of self-pity. Your past cannot stop you from a successful future, but your attitude can. God will fight your battles, but you must believe in your heart that the force of life in you is greater than the forces around you that may be against you.
Psalm 118: 4-7: Let those who fear the LORD say:"His love endures forever." In my anguish I cried to the LORD, and he answered by setting me free. The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me? The LORD is with me; he is my helper. I will look in triumph on my enemies."
Psalm 138:7-8: "Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand will save me. The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, endure forever."
Zechariah 8:9: "Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Let your hands be strong, ye that hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets, which were in the day that the foundation of the house of the LORD of hosts was laid, that the temple might be built."
Isaiah 59:20-21: "He shall come as a Redeemer to Zion and to those in Jacob (Israel) who turn from transgression, says the Lord. As for Me, this is My covenant or league with them, says the Lord: My Spirit, Who is upon you [and Who writes the law of God inwardly on the heart], and My words which I have put in your mouth shall not depart out of your mouth, or out of the mouths of your [true, spiritual] children, or out of the mouths of your children's children, says the Lord, from henceforth and forever."
1 Corinthians 6:19-20: "Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit who lives within you, whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own, you were bought with a price [purchased with a preciousness and paid for, made His own]. So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body."
When we allow negative thoughts to be a part of our life, we bring defilement into ourselves whom God has said in every way is clean, righteous, and Holy. To change your world, change your attitude lining your thoughts with what God says.
My Beloved Bride,
My Word is Life, Love. Every WORD. Give me the eternal expansion of possibilities that one word could possibly be, even if it seems impossible or goes against anything you have been taught. Play ball with Me; challenge Me to see if I AM concerned with the impossible or taking my WORD out of content. Can I not right that which was interpreted wrong? If taking out of content brings Life, Light, and Love, then trust me as a child that I said it and it doesn't need more or less than one WORD. In one WORD, has all power and authority. By your faith in who I AM will come faith that which you ask. Let your faith produce peace, patience, unconditional love, and unconditional forgiveness. Beware that religion and your natural mind will be your greatest enemy that can cause an abortion of the seed which I planted. The manifestation of the seed (baby) must be nurtured by the lining of faith and covering of water (Word and Holy Spirit). When the fullness of the term for the seed is complete, the birth will come forth. Again I say, do not abort my WORD in you - the Holy Thing I impregnated you with.
