Positive Thinking ?


It Is Written Proverbs 3:5-6, trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your path.
Many people believe in the power of positive thinking. Books have been written on the subject, as well as numerous self-help books. There are videos and CDs by motivational speakers.
So why do you suppose the majority of people who try these methods fail? All of these methods have one big thing in common. They all count on the person doing whatever it is, by his own efforts.
When you decide to trust in yourself, even though you cannot see the twists and turns of life, you are setting yourself up for failure. You are usually unaware of the price you must pay, whether you succeed or not.
Many people spend a lifetime of stress, loss of the important things in life, such as family, and even the possibility of ever experiencing salvation.
There is an easier way. Instead of trusting in yourself, trust in God. Ecclesiastes 9:11 says the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to men of understanding, nor favor to men of skill;  but time and chance happen to them all. Simply put, give your needs and dreams to God to take care of, and accept Jesus and what He did for all of us, and listen for His voice in your heart, and follow   Him.
The fact of the matter is the Holy Spirit sees all, but helps and guides those who put Jesus first. God bless you and your family. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
Amen
