Your Attitude Determines Your Future

Do you realize you are creating your future by the very attitude you posses?

Take a look at Proverbs 15:15. The Amplified Bible says it this way, "All the days of the desponding afflicted are made evil (by anxious thoughts and foreboding), but he who has a glad heart has a continual feast (regardless of circumstances)."

We have an "either - or" situation here. Have a glad heart and a continual feast, or have your days made evil by "stinking thinking." It's all an attitude.

Your attitude is supported by your beliefs and your beliefs are vital to your success or failure in life. Jesus said, "As you have believed, let it be done unto you" (Matthew 8:13).

Whatever emotion you experience at any given time is supported by a particular belief. If you are experiencing joy, there is an underlying belief that supports that emotion. If you are experiencing discouragement, there is an underlying belief supporting that too.

If you know God is taking care of you and watching out for your best interest, then relax. Have a glad heart and know He is in control, for the peace of God surpasses all understanding (Phil 4:7).

If, for some reason, you are experiencing some negative emotion, you're believing in something that is causing it.

So, the next time you're exuding a poor demeanor; slumped shoulders, shallow breathing, a sagging facial expression, just stop and ask yourself, "What is the belief that is supporting this behavior?" Once you recognize it, you can change it. It's just a decision.

"He who has a glad heart has a continual feast, but all the days of the desponding afflicted are made evil."

Notice the phrase, "desponding afflicted." The word "desponding" means losing hope. As long as God is alive, there is no reason to lose hope. "He is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we ask or think, according to the power that works in us" (Eph 3:20).

This power that works in us is our faith. Jesus said, "According to your faith let it be done unto you" (Matthew 9:29).

You are creating your future by the very attitude you posses. Don't worry, be happy and trust God.
