Stay Positive

And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent; or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will The Heavenly Father give The Holy Spirit to those who ask Him! Luke 11:9-13 ESV

No matter what is surrounding you or you are facing today, keep a positive attitude. The Bible says with God nothing shall be impossible (Luke 1:37 KJV). Whatever challenges we face or whatever unfavorable circumstances that surround us, God is able to change them for our good. And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28 NIV). God is going to use what was meant for our harm and change to our good. So do not lose heart (2 Corinthians 4:1) because our attitude and belief during hardships and confusions plays a large part on how we will approach challenges in life.



If our attitude and belief towards an issue is healthy, we will have healthy results. But if our attitude and belief towards an issue is unhealthy, we will have unhealthy results. So if we believe God loves us (John 3:16) and wants the best for us, and also believe what God's Word says about us and our issues in life, and approach those issues according to The Word of God in a positive way, giving God praise and thanking Him in advance for what He is going to do in our lives, soon or later things will turn in our favor. And even if we don’t get what we want or get our way, God will not permit the godly to slip and fall (Psalm 55:22). After all, it's better to do God's Will than to get our own way.

Our trust should be in The Lord, and our eyes focus on Him and not our circumstances. By His grace we will make it and overcome our obstacles. And how do I know? Because God's Word in The Bible tells so. When we put our trust in Him, He will open doors that needed to be open and shut doors that needed to be shut, and somehow change things in our favor. He will make a way where there is no way, or open up new opportunities in the midst of our unfavorable circumstances, and storms (Isaiah 41:18). God, through The Holy Spirit, will stir up gifts He has put in our Spirits or hearts, prompt new desires and passion within us that will motivate us to act on our faith (James 2:17). And He will send more help on our way and teach us in the way we should go. God wants us to prosper in every area of life.


The Bible also says, God thoughts are not our thoughts neither His ways our ways (Isaiah 55:8). When we believe The Hand of God is upon us, it’s easier for us to approach life confidently with a good attitude knowing no matter what happens things will be alright. Someone is watching over us. God knows our beginning, our now, tomorrow, and ending. He is our Creator! He knows about our issues and situations. At the end of the day it is going to be well and His Will be done. The Bible tells, God's Word will not turn to Him empty, but will accomplish what He desires and achieve the purpose for which He sent it (Isaiah 55:11).

Our God is a good, loving, and compassionate God (Psalm 145:8-9). No matter what we have done, He keeps forgiving us and helping us daily to become better people. Every day is a testimony of God's love for us, His mercy and grace in our lives. So whatever situations you are in right now, believe that something good will come out of it. Do not be afraid to submit to God and surrender to His Will. And when we do that, let’s keep a positive mindset and attitude because miracles happen when we believe.

Remember: In all these difficulties, trials, or tribulations; we are more than conquerors through Christ who loves us (Romans 8:37).

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mark 11:24 NIV

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 ESV

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 NKJV
