The Power of Being Positive

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. PROVERBS 23:7, Romans 12:2

Many years ago, I was an extremely negative person. My whole philosophy was this: “If you don’t expect anything good to happen, then you won’t be disappointed when it doesn’t.” So many devastating things had happened to me over the years, I was afraid to believe anything good might happen to me. Since my thoughts were all negative, so was my mouth; therefore, so was my life.

Perhaps you’re like I was. You’re avoiding hope to protect yourself from being hurt. This type of behavior sets up a negative lifestyle. Everything becomes negative because your thoughts are negative. When I really began to study the Word and to trust God to restore me, one of the first things I realized was that the negativism had to go. And the longer I serve God, the more I realize the tremendous power in being positive in my thoughts and words.

Our actions are a direct result of our thoughts. A negative mind will result in a negative life. But if we renew our mind according to God’s Word, we will receive His promises. Then we can prove in our experience “the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”

It is a life-changing exercise to line up our thoughts with God’s thoughts.
