You choose your attitude. In every life experience, you can choose to have a positive attitude or a negative attitude. Today, choose a biblical attitude, an attitude that trusts God and believes for a supernatural turnaround. Be like Caleb who would not float along with the status quo but chose a God-attitude and reaped a God-turnaround.
In Numbers 14:24 God declares, “My servant Caleb has a different attitude than the others have. He has remained loyal to me, so I will bring him into the land he explored. His descendants will possess their full share of that land” (NLT). Caleb refused to give in to doubt and despair when he saw the overwhelming odds against the children of Israel. Instead he boldly stood with confidence and said, “Our God is greater!”
Today I challenge you as leaders to take up a Caleb attitude and stand before the people and declare the greatness of God. Encourage them to see God is greater than any situation that you as a church are facing.
Look forward, not backward. You cannot see the new that lies ahead if you are too busy looking back at the past with regret for the things you have left behind or for the areas you failed. Leave the past failures and forget the past successes. Look with focused faith for the new that God has promised.
Look for the work of God around you. A supernatural turnaround attitude sees the new that is springing forth. The new things God has for you are already in the works. The process has already begun. Just like a seed that begins germinating underground long before it can be seen above ground, God is working quietly in your behalf. Have a prophetic eye to see the work of God all around you.
Look for the God-made road where there is no road. God turns the wilderness into a place of destiny. He builds a new path in the wilderness that connects you to His destiny for your life. When you are in a barren place that seems to have no escape, look to see the God-made road leading to a new destiny.
