It’s amazing how one’s perception can affect so many things. Let’s face it, life is just that… life. Stuff happens, a lot of which we have no control over. What we can control, however is our perception and how we handle those things that do happen. Instead of looking at seemingly not so good situations as trouble, switch your perspective, find the positive and decide to approach it as an opportunity. As children of God, it is so important that we take the opportunity to show God how much we love and trust Him each and every day of our lives, in every aspect of our lives. God is omniscience, which means He is all-knowing. He already knows what is going to happen before it ever actually does. He just wants to see how you are going to process it. He wants to see if you believe His word and you really do trust Him with all things. I find it interesting how we can trust Him with our children or our jobs, but when it comes to other situations like our marriage or our finances we tend to want to handle those on our own. You can’t pick and choose; God wants to be God over every aspect of your life, not just what you want to Him to be in charge of.
We have to change our perspective. How do you change your perspective? Study the word of God. The more you study the bible, the more you will know. And as you learn more, that is where the transformation begins to take place. This will also help build your personal relationship with God. In addition to reading and learning more about the word, pray and ask God to help you. God never intended for us to change ourselves. He wants to do it, after all, He is the one who created us, but we just have to ask.
I believe wholeheartedly that when you know better, you do better. Once you do, there is nothing better than seeing first hand the changes that God is doing within you. Not only seeing, but feeling the difference when something transpires that to the world wouldn’t seem good at all, however you see it as an opportunity to trust God. Today’s decisions are tomorrow’s reality. Don’t let short-term passions destroy long-term blessings! Choose peace, choose love, choose joy, choose perseverance, choose faith, and most importantly choose a Godly perspective! #iDeclare #timetogetyourmindright
Father God in the name of Jesus, I come asking for your help Lord. I really do need to get my mind right. Help me to change my perspective and perception on life. Help me to take you at your word. I speak a positive outlook over myself and over any situation that may come my way. I decree and declare that I will trust you with every area of my life. I will not lean on my own understanding, but I will acknowledge you in all things. I decree and declare that I will make right decisions and choose to walk in peace, love, joy, happiness, faith, patience, gentleness, and perseverance. Help me to have a Godly perspective. I lift every yoke, every strong hold, every burden off of my shoulders right now in the name of Jesus and I speak peace into my spirit. I thank you Lord of the peace of God that surpasses all understanding that I will have each and every day of my life. Thank you God for transforming my mind. In Jesus name, Amen.
