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!

Life's Healing Choices, Part 6- Repairing Relationships

I evaluate all my relationships, offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me, and make amends for harm I’ve done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others.

“Happy are those who are merciful to others... Happy are those who work for peace.” Matthew 5:7,9 (TEV)

1. I can FORGIVE others because God has FORGIVEN me.
“To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable, because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.” C.S. Lewis

Lessons from a Hoarder (Luke 12:13-21)
13Someone out of the crowd said, "Teacher, order my brother to give me a fair share of the family inheritance." 14He replied, "Mister, what makes you think it's any of my business to be a judge or mediator for you?" 15Speaking to the people, he went on, "Take care! Protect yourself against the least bit of greed. Life is not defined by what you have, even when you have a lot."
