Topic: The Positive View Of Life [Monday April 30, 2018]
Scripture: Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree. Then said the Lord unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it. Jeremiah 1:11-12
Thought For The Day: The way you see life is more important than the way life sees you.
I heard a story from the mouth of God’s Servant, Pastor E. A. Adeboye of a man whose car was snatched by armed robbers on the expressway. The man stood on the roadside and began to dance. When people met him, they thought that he had run mad. When they asked him why he was dancing, he said, “I am dancing because they took my car and not my life; there are some people whose cars and lives were both taken by the robbers. The second reason I am dancing is that I am not the one who stole; I am not a thief. I am also dancing because I have something someone could steal; there are people that do not have anything worth stealing.”
Can you see such a mind-set? Other people may see calamity out of the whole episode but this man saw prosperity. If, for instance you complain that you woke up late today, what about people who did not wake up at all?
Thomas Edison tried to invent the electric bulb one thousand times but could not get it, then someone told him that he failed one thousand times in trying to invent the electric bulb. He told the person that he did not fail one thousand times but he only discovered one thousand ways in which the electric bulb could not be invented.
Beloved, I like you to always have a positive view of life; see life differently from the way it is. The way you see life is more important than the way life sees you.
Remember this: The way you see life is more important than the way life sees you.
1. Develop a positive mind-set towards life.
2. Give a positive interpretation to every negative situation. Always have a positive view of every situation of life no matter how negative.
Prayer: O Lord, I ask for the grace to see life from Your own perspective. Help me to give a positive interpretation to every situation, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
