DAY 16 MONDAY: AUGUST 2021

HAVE A POSITIVE MINDSET IN LIFE!

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy- meditate on these things (Philippians 4:8).  

God wants every Christian to have a positive mindset in life. It is only a mindset that is positive that can overcome obstacles of life. The Bible says in the opening text that finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy- meditate on these things. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God expects him to constantly maintain a positive mindset in life. A positive mindset is absolutely a mindset that indeed positions one for absolute greatness in life forever.

Any Christian who wants to have a positive mindset should learn to renew and transform his mind positively in life. That is why the Bible says in Romans 12:2, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Therefore, a transformed and positive mindset is a mind that is set for greatness and perfect will of God in life. Except one transforms and renews his mind for absolute greatness, he can never experience a positive mindset in life forever.

When a Christian has a positive mindset, he experiences God’s divine peace which the world can never offer in life. That is the reason why Jesus Christ said in John 14:27 thus, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” In fact, whenever a Christian sets his mind positively on God’s Word, he definitely finds the peace of God like a flowing river in life. The divine peace of God which is shalom can only be received absolutely by someone who has a positive mindset on the things of God in life forever.

Daily Tip: Every Christian is absolutely expected to have a positive mindset in order to experience shalom which is the divine peace of God in his life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you (1 Thessalonians 5:18).
