KEY SCRIPTURE: Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
What is attitude?
The advance learner’s dictionary defines attitude as ‘ A complex mental state involving beliefs feelings and values and dispositions to act in certain ways. Your ultimate impact in life depends on your attitude. Applying the scriptures gives one the best attitudes to life. Winners in various aspects of life are people with strong positive attitudes about life.
In our key scripture, Apostle Paul says because Christ lives in him he can do all things through Christ which strengthens him. Anyone with this understanding can’t be a failure. You approach life with a winning attitude… Mark 9:23 says, all things are possible to him that believes. What is the challenge that appears impossible? The scripture says if you can believe in the Lord, nothing will be impossible to you. How wonderful to have that inner assurance that, you can do, get or achieve everything you face.
Fear is a negative attitude that has robbed many people of achieving so much. The Bible continually tells us never to be afraid. The scriptures if allowed to dominate us would take away fear from us.
There is nothing too big for the child of God to achieve or overcome. The greater one lives in you. Ephesians 2:10 reveals that we are the workmanship of God created in Christ Jesus unto good works. Anyone who comes to terms with this statement would become unstoppable. To know that you are a specially designed by God, made out of Jesus, only to produce good things. Such a man knows that, since He is God’s handiwork he is an outright success going somewhere to happen. He would not give in to mediocre ideas but understands that his makeup should only produce the best. Such a person would stand out unique in everything. The word of God indeed builds a very positive attitude in people. Colossians 3:23 says “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily as the Lord and not unto men”.
A child of God with this knowledge approaches his work or assignments not as working for men but a way to please God who behold all that he does.
Feed your heart with the word and you would stand out as a success in all you do.
God’s word creates and builds the best attitude any man could have. My life experiences are therefore very glorious because I apply God’s word to all I do.
Hebrews 13:5. Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
1 John 4:4 ” Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world”.
