GOD CAN CHANGE ATTITUDE | ALLEN HICKMAN
Bible App NotesIt has been said for centuries that “attitude is everything.” Attitude is basically how we perceive the world in which we live. “Good Lord, it’s morning” or “Good morning, Lord.” It all depends on your attitude.
Many Christians are living in a state of defeat because they have not allowed God through His Holy Spirit to change their attitude or their way of thinking. Why? More than likely it is because we think there is nothing wrong with our attitude. If we would just stop long enough to hear God He would let us know there is a better way of living. Philippians 2 tells us to have the same “mind” or “attitude” as Jesus Christ. “He had equal status with God but didn't think so much of himself that he had to cling to the advantages of that status no matter what. Not at all. When the time came, he set aside the privileges of deity and took on the status of a slave, became human!” Philippians 2:6-7 (MSG) Wow, now that is a complete attitude and what of thinking change.
If we are going to make a significant impact on our world we are going to have to understand and change our attitude about a few things. First, we must have the correct attitude towards the world. The world is not our enemy. We are to love the world with the love of Jesus but not its systems and sinful lust. We must yearn and hunger for God and the things of God. Not religion but hunger after God Himself. We also have to have three desires. First we must desire to win. Christ wins and if we are in Him so do we. Second, is our life must be found in Christ. Third, we must hunger to know Him. Three experience we need are, the power of His resurrection, the power to overcome Satan and the power of the supernatural by way of the Holy Spirit working in and through our life.
