Your Word for 19 April 2024

Hebrews 4:16
‘So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.’

keys to spiritual maturity -
When it comes to our attitude we must constantly look to our example – JESUS. In those moments of choice, we can ask ourselves this question.
Next time, before you respond/react ask yourself this question: WHAT WOULD JESUS DO?

Philippians 2:5 Let this same attitude and purpose and [humble] mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus: [Let Him be our example in humility:]

Jesus is our example and as we follow His example we are destined to win.
Change your attitude and change your life.  This is the bottom line. Our attitude will either destroy us or take us to new heights.  Every problem has a solution, only if we adjust or change our attitude.

Revelation 3:19 So be enthusiastic and in earnest and burning with zeal and repent [changing your mind and attitude].

We can change our minds and attitude. It is a God-given ability. God wants to help us make the choices and go on to enjoy more of the abundant life.  We need to repent of bad or wrong attitudes and move on armed with a new attitude.

1 Peter 4:1 Since Christ suffered in His body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude.

Even though Jesus suffered on the cross, He had the right attitude. The greatest example to me is when Jesus hung dying on the cross in agony and dying.  He utters the following words: ‘Father forgive them, for they know not what they do!’
We started looking at the attitude meter in aircraft.  In bad weather you really rely on this instrument.  It is when things are going rough that we need our positive attitude more than ever.  It is easy to have a good attitude when things are ideal.  However when we are in a valley it may be difficult, but our attitude is our lifeline!
It’s your attitude towards life (in all its facets – family, work etc) that makes your life great! I once read the following quote: “To change everything, simply change your attitude.”
