For we are God’s own handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us, [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them, [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].
(Ephesians 2:10 – AMP)
God said in His word that he has already preordained your life. He has a plan to prosper you and not to harm you.
How do you fulfill His plan for your life?
By developing a Positive Attitude. There is a winning attitude and a losing attitude. In order to be successful in life, you must have a winning attitude.
What is a Winning Attitude?
It is Christ’s attitude. In Philippians 2:5 – AMP, it says, “Let this same attitude and purpose and humble mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus.”
Jesus never ran from adversity. He never gave up in the midst of adversity. He maintained a winning attitude, and trusted, relied upon, and depended on the power God gave him to overcome adversity. This is the same attitude that you must develop in your life. You must determine to win at any cost, relying solely and completely on God to strengthen you and carry you through to victory. Your attitude is more than a feeling. It is what will enable you to keep fighting in the midst of adversity when others have given up and thrown in the towel.
Jesus never quit. When He knew He was about to be crucified on the cross, he surrendered his will to God’s will by saying “Thy will be done.” He endured all of the pain and suffering on the cross to save you from eternal death in hell.
We must endure (outlast) adversity like Jesus. Whatever you are going through, whatever Satan is trying to do in your life, make a decision today and remain determined to endure (outlast) it and triumph through the power and strength God has given you to overcome. “We are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him who loved us.” (Romans 8:38)
If you will begin to develop a Winning Attitude, then nothing Satan tries to do to you will move you. If Satan cannot move you, then you cannot be defeated. You will Triumph in Christ and fulfill God’s plan for your life.
