Twitter Message For The Week- NEGATIVITY

This past weekend I talked about the reality that you need to Know & Apply The Power of a POSITIVE SPIRIT. When I mention a positive spirit, I not suggesting that we should just pretend to be happy & chipper. I believe that Christ-followers should be full of genuine hope & faith that is rooted in the promises of the living God! Learning to apply the power of a positive spirit will determine whether or not you will experience everything that God has for your life. The Israelites under the leadership of Moses missed their divine destiny because of their grumbling & negativity. (see Numbers 13:27-32; 14:24-28) God does not desire that we would miss out on His promises like that generation. He desires that you would be full of life, hope, love, encouragement & grace towards ourself & others. The question you need to ask yourself is this, "Are you living in the power of a positive, faith-filled Spirit?"

Here are a few thoughts about what negativity is & what it will do in your life:
1. Negativity is basically looking at your life from the devil's perspective.
2. Negativity is a reflection of inner defeat that is going on inside of you. Each of us see life & others as we see ourselves. Negativity is a mirror to your heart & mind.
3. Negativity will always justify itself. It will always masquerade behind the guise of truth-telling, but at the end of the day it's simply grumbling.
4. Negativity will choose your friends for you. Proverbs 13:20 says, "Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble." (see also Psalm 101:3)

Don't ever forget that Jesus came that we would have life & life to the fullest! (John 10:10) No matter what you may be going through, remember that God doesn't end anything on a negative, He ends everything on a positive. Stay committed to His plan & purpose for your life!
