WEEK OF AUGUST 16-22
Your attitude is a seed that determines your destiny.
Attitude is a reflection of what is going on deep inside a person. Attitude is something we can’t fake. We may go to church with a smile on our face, but pretty soon, if we don’t like the music or we think they spent too much time on the offering, our attitude is going to reveal how we really feel.
The root cause of a negative attitude is the belief that nothing good is going to happen. This belief stems from not really believing God’s Word. When you spend more time in the world than you do in the Word, you are not thoroughly convinced, or fully persuaded, that God means what He says. And if you are not convinced that you can depend on God, your attitude will reveal it through your thoughts and words.
The only remedy for a negative attitude is spending time in God’s Word, allowing His thoughts to become your thoughts and His words your words. There are times when we can defeat the devil with just our attitude. We just have to determine that no matter what he says or does, it’s not going to affect our positive attitude.
Proverbs 4:20-22 say, My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh.
Once you take charge of your thoughts, your words, and your attitude, and sow them as good seed, you begin to see a positive change in your material and financial sowing. (We can’t talk about the law of seedtime and harvest without including our finances and material possessions). The Word says money is a seed. Clothes can become seed, your car and your lawn mower. If you own it and it’s yours, it’s a seed. And because you are a sower, you can stand on the promise He made in His Word.
