The Attitude Of An Overcomer

I read a fantastic devotional today that I wanted to pass along. The devotional is all about our attitude. The key to each of us fulfilling our God-ordained destiny is found within our attitude. It is our perspective & the way that we look at life. I challenge you to be a person of faith, hope & expectancy! Develop the attitude of an overcomer and you will overcome!

TODAY'S SCRIPTURE
"For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith"
(I John 5:4, NIV)

TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria
Are you facing some challenges or experiencing some unexpected setbacks? We all have things that come against us, but God didn't create us to be overwhelmed and overcome; He created us to be overcomers!

During those times when we do face challenges, it's our attitude that is really most important. Think about it for a minute. When something isn't going your way month after month, how do you respond? Are you tempted to get sour or start expecting the worst? Does your mind start going "ninety-to-nothing" playing out all the scenarios? It may be easy to get down and discouraged, but if we go around thinking it's never going to work out, our attitude limits what God can do. But when we dig our heels in knowing that God is bigger than our problems and that He already has a way out, when we fight the good fight of faith, that's what allows God to show up and turn negative situations around.

Today, remember, you are created to overcome. There is victory already in store for your future. Stand strong with the attitude of an overcomer and watch what God will do on your behalf!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY
" Father in heaven, thank You for making me an overcomer in Christ Jesus. I trust that You are bigger than my problems and that You are working on my behalf. Thank You for the victory in store for my future! In Jesus' Name. Amen."
