“If people can’t see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; But when they attend to what he reveals, they are most blessed.”– Proverbs 29:18 (MSG)

Nothing hinders our testimony like an attitude that always sees the worst in every situation. Life may not be perfect, but that doesn’t mean it has to be hopeless. We need to remind ourselves again and again about the greatness of our God.

How you see things does make a difference in your life. If you only see the problems, you will always be defeated. But if you see the possibilities in the midst of the problems, you will always be victorious.

When you become so overwhelmed with the bad things happening, you will eventually lose sight of the good things in your life. Just like having a positive outlook can dictate a positive outcome, having a negative outlook can also lead to a negative outcome.

I challenge you today to focus on changing your outlook, so perhaps you will change your outcome!

“I am the LORD, the God of all people. Nothing is too difficult for me.” – Jeremiah 32:27 (GNT)

Have you ever noticed how sometimes the smallest thing can set you off and cause you to fear and stress out? It’s easy to think that somehow what we are facing is even too great for God.

But as believers, there shouldn’t be any reason for us to lose our peace and settle for defeat. Yes, life will be tough at times and problems will seem insurmountable. Because we live in a real world with real issues, we all will experience our share of difficulties.

However, we cannot let the reality of our circumstances outweigh the reality of our victory! The truth is absolutely nothing we face in life goes beyond God’s ability to handle it.

So when things get tough, instead of focusing on what is surrounding us, we need to set our eyes on the promises of God’s Word. No matter what you are facing today, know that God is greater. Trust Him and let Him handle it! 

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life…” – Matthew 6:25 (NIV)

Whenever you’re facing a challenge or a problem, you have an important choice to make—focus on the problem or focus on the solution.

It is vitally important not to catastrophize our circumstances if we want to experience victory over them. Constantly worrying about a particular problem does not solve it. On the contrary, it only creates unnecessary stress and can cause paralyzing fear and anxiety. Besides, worry is just a waste of valuable time and energy.

What we get out of life is determined by what we choose to dwell on. Rather than dwelling on the problem, I challenge you to keep a positive perspective and focus your attention on possible solutions. This optimistic approach will put you in a better position to win in life.

“No longer will you be called Abram; your name will be Abraham, for I have made you a father of many nations.” – Genesis 17:5 (BSB)

When it comes to living your God-given destiny, one thing is certain: What worked to get you to one level will not necessarily work to get you to the next level.

Every new level of life requires a new version of you. Every new phase of destiny requires a different process of development. As you examine where you are today, take a moment to envision the next level. Can you see your future self waiting for the person you are now to grow up and become better?

To go to the next level, you must be willing to embrace the new you. Today, I challenge you to seize every opportunity to evolve into the person you were meant to be! Don’t hold yourself back and don’t allow others to hold you back. Stay committed to your transformation! 

“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” – John 8:36 (NIV)

Everyone in this world is seeking freedom of some kind. Whether it’s religious freedom, or freedom through a social, political, relational, or economic status, we all want to experience life with no restraints.

However, freedom stands for something greater than just the right to think and act as one pleases without fear of consequences. True freedom is much greater than that!

There’s nothing like living in the freedom of knowing who you are in Christ. This freedom is complete and eternal. It not only liberates us from our past, guilt, and shame; it also empowers us to be everything God intends for us to be.

As a result, we are no longer enslaved by our own carnal desires, but we are given desires that honor and glorify God and look out for the best interests of others. So if you’re searching for true freedom, let Christ be your ultimate source.
