It can be challenging to remain positive in a negative and competitive world. Often we base our positive attitude on our personal circumstances, so if things are going our way then life is good. If things are not going our way then our positive attitude tends to go away too. We need to transform our thought process and remain positive each day because of what God has done for us. He encourages us and wants us to encourage others. Remember not to let circumstances dictate how you feel and don’t let the negative words of others cause you to give up. Pastor Michael told the story of Elijah and Jezebel to illustrate that point.
There are going to be highs and lows in life, but God is strengthening you and preparing you for your unique journey. God will make sure you are ready and as long as you keep your eyes on Him you will win. When you take your eyes off from Him, you become distracted and the negativity creeps in. Be an encourager and think of ways to motivate others. Pastor Michael closed by asking us to think about what we feel God wants to do in our life by praying over a word and a scripture to go with it. I chose discipline. What word did you choose?
