Verse Of The Day : I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Psalms 27:13
Thought of The Day : God can’t deny us what we have the faith to receive.
LISTEN : You can’t be defeated until you accept defeat. So, believe that you can win against all odds. Beloved, it’s hard to overcome obstacles when you’re already defeated in your mind. The Bible says,
“For as he thinks in his heart, so is he…”
This means that, to win in life you must win the battle of thoughts. Learn to fight evil imaginations and embrace good ones. You can’t win unless you have a winning mindset; and you can’t experience a future you can’t imagine. To experience a great future, you should first of all have it in your mind. My dear, if you can’t see it you can’t grab it. The future you want to experience you should first see with the eyes of faith. Because faith sees the invisible, therefore, it is not hard to believe that the invisible will eventually becomes visible. That is, when you walk by faith, your expectations will certainly become your experience (Mark 9:23). What you imagine and believes God for will find expression in your life. Right in the midst of troubles, David believed that, the best is yet to come. He said,
“Therefore I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.”
Beloved, situations in your life shouldn’t kill your dream of a great and better future. Be confident of the future you desire to create, so that when obstacles arise, they’ll not stop your progress, instead, it’ll bless you with experience for a greater height. Friend, to create a great and better future for yourself, you must be positive and hopeful ; trust in the power of God ; and never lose hope. My dear, Hopelessness kills dreams and frustrates and aborts destinies. Yes, hopelessness is an enemy of greatness. If you’re hopeless your ability to attempt something new dies. So, no matter what happens, never lose hope. Beloved, don’t accept defeat. Always put on a winning mindset and you’ll win. Remind yourself that you’ll not be defeated and you’ll surely be victorious. Be wise!
