Your attitude determines the place in which you are going to walk, the place in which you are to fly as an eagle or flutter around on the ground like a chicken
Your attitude determines whether you walk in victory or defeat.
Ask yourself a question?
What is your attitude?
Does your attitude, your way of thinking, you’re outlook, your philosophy is it filtered and flavored through the word of God
The word of God needs to be a filter inside of you that takes every piece of information, every thought, opportunity that is presented to you and it needs to be filtered through the word of God.
In my last writing “More than a conqueror” I shared with you how your feelings are not based upon truth and that feelings are based upon perceptions of what you may be feeling at the time but they are not facts.
I need to say it again,
Feelings are based upon perceptions, perceptions of what some one else might have said, upon what some body else might have experienced, based upon statistics and how you feel about any given thing, but they are not based upon the word of God.
And the word of God is the only standard of truth that the born again child of God can rely on if that child desires to walk in the fullness and completeness of who God is in them.
Your feelings are based upon perceptions of what you might think to be truth but in reality they are a lie masquerading as truth
Perceptions of truth are not facts and truth is facts based upon the word of God.
Let me give you some facts that are true that will make you free.
#1 you are a brand new creation and old things are passed away and all things are new.
2 Cor 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
#2 Not only are they new, they are new every morning
It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.
The Lords mercies are not consumed, His compassions do not fail, every morning they are new
#3 Great is His faithfulness!
He is faithful and because He is faithful, He is my portion; He is my hope as I seek His face,
These are the facts, this is truth
But how is it that you perceive these facts and truths.
Do you perceive them though your feelings, do you not see them as new every morning because of what you may have went through during the previous night,
Do you not see how great His faithfulness is because of the trouble that you are now experiencing?
#4 you are above only, you are not beneath, and you have been made the head and not the tail.
And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:
#5 you are complete and you are finished.
For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
The same spirit that Christ has in Him, you have in you, the same resurrection power that was present is Christ is present in you, the same faith that Christ had to raise Lazarus from the dead lives inside of you
The same ability to cleanse the leper, raise the dead, cast out demons and heal the sick lives on the inside of you.
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead , cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
You have all the faith that you need.
For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith .
#6 you have access to all the promises in the word of God
2 Cor 1:20
For all the promises of God in him are yea , and in him Amen , unto the glory of God by us.
#7 everything that you need you already have.
2 Pet 1:3
According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
#8 everything that pertains to this life and this salvation has already been provided to you.
1 Cor 3:21
Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;
Does your thinking and your attitude exhibit this truth that all things are yours?
He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
The scriptures are plain, when the Father gave us and delivered up His Son for our safes how could he not with His Son give us all things pertaining to His Son
For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
The Lord God gives grace and glory
2 Cor 4:15
For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.
What a tremendous scripture,
All things are for your sake that abundant grace might through thanksgiving may super abound to you for the glory of God
Is this how your attitude is managed and controlled or is your attitude managed and controlled by,
I am not adequate,
I am just a sinner saved by grace
I can not do it,
I can not be victorious around that person,
I can not walk in love around that person,
I can not forgive that person,
Everything is stacked against me,
I need more faith,
I need more grace when the grace of God is already abounding towards you.
Your thoughts ought to be about that which is abounding towards you instead of that which you feel you are lacking in.
