What to do when our attitudes get in the way

Perhaps you have developed an attitude that is a stumbling block to receiving what God has for you.  What can we do about this? 1. Repent. 2. Ask God to forgive. 3. Reject those attitudes that have held you back. 4. Make your life’s goal the pursuit of God. 5. Enjoy all that God has…

A wait and see attitude

I have seen this attitude over and over again.  When we have this attitude we do not go for God. It is like standing on the sideline of the sports field.  Have you ever noticed how much advise spectators have at a sports event?  They look on and know exactly what to do, but they…

A negative attitude

There is a story in the Old Testament about 10 spies.  These ten individuals were sent into the new land to survey the situation.  8 came back with negative reports and only 2 came back with a positive attitude. A negative attitude can really rob us as individual.  ‘My life will never change.’  ‘Nothing works…

An attitude of acceptance

When we get to the point where we just accept things and are no longer pursuing God, we stand to miss the great things that God has in store for us. It is possible to accept an attitude of acceptance: ‘This is as good as it is going to get.’ ‘I will just live with…

An attitude of pride

Pride can be a major stumbling block.  Pride develops as we begin to have a high opinion of ourselves. Proverbs 16:5 The LORD detests all the proud of heart. Proverbs 16:18 Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall. Arrogance can also be seen as pride.  When we are no longer humble and…

An attitude that what God has done is over

This is an attitude that can hinder us from getting where God wants us to go.  We see this in the attitude of some people who believe that what people experienced in the New Testament was for then.  They think that it is not for now and we live in a different era. The tragedy…

An attitude of self-righteousness

This attitude develops when we begin to think that we are right.  The problem with this attitude is that it is based on our opinion and our opinion is usually based in our perception. I have found perceptions to be one of the most deceptive things in life.  If I allow what I feel is…

Casual attitudes and the attitude of moving on

A CASUAL ATTITUDE We can easily begin to develop a casual attitude. At this point we begin to think that we are ‘experienced’.  We begin to think that we have seen all that God is going to do.  We begin to speak like this: ‘I have been around for a while’ or ‘I experienced that years…

When attitudes get in the way

We all want to make spiritual progress.  We all want to grow in the things of God.  We all want to experience more of God.  Our spiritual lives are meant to take us from strength to strength and from glory to glory. But sometimes things get in the way.  There are attitudes and dispositions that…

Change your attitude

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…
