Have you ever noticed that you have a tendency to go in the direction you are looking?
When you are driving and you are looking at a something to your right, your vehicle
will drift to the right.
It’s the same with our lives. If we don’t like the direction our lives are headed
then we need to see how we are viewing life.
If you want your life to change, you must change the way you think. Dwelling on
the negative things that happen in your life will attract other negative things
to influence your life.
Learn to soak in the richness of His presence.
Negativity is a sign of a victim mentality and a poverty mindset. Eeyore from Winne
the Pooh has such an attitude. He never feels good enough and there is always something
bad that is going to happen to him. Such an individual is not much fun to be around.
Negative things happen to all of us. A person with no hope or very little hope will
focus on the negative things. That person will look for someone or something to
blame for the negative. Pretty soon, just about everyone or everything in their
life is labeled as the problem for their stinky life.
Identifying the problem is the first step to solving the problem. Most of time,
the problem is closer to us than we want to believe. But we can’t stop at identifying
the problem. We must work to solve it.
I believe the most effective way to work at your problem is to rest. Rest in the
Lord, that is. When you trust that the Lord is going to help you solve your problem
you can rest assured it will happen.
Many times the way your problem is solved is not the way you thought it would be.
But God’s ways are always better than our ways.
We may be focusing on resolving one event in our lives but God is focused on many
events that will bring us into the fullness of our destiny with Him.
Trusting in God’s wisdom involves many conscious efforts on our part:
Stop the knee jerk reactions. Our reactions to situations only get in God’s way.
Learn the Father’s heart. He is good all the time. He wants to see us successful
more than we want it.
Discover His promises in His word. Begin with the four Gospels, Matthew, Mark,Luke
Learn to soak in the richness of His presence. Play and/or sing worship music and
just relax. He will reveal many things to usif we will just slow down and listen.
A positive lifestyle is the way of the Kingdom of God. Jesus came to give us a joyously,
richlife. A life that is better than wecould ever come up with on our own.
"I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever
John 10:10 The Message
Think about it.
Go after the good life by seeking the One Who is Good.
