Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place (2 Corinthians 2:14). Pessimism has no place in the life of a believer. Before I became a Christian, I looked on the negative side of everything. Instead of seeing the cup half full, I saw it half empty! God wants us to be full of expectancy, and wants us to believe Him for His best! When you have this attitude, instead of complaining when things go wrong, you constantly look for the solution. In relating to others, you look for the best in them, and look beyond their faults. And with this attitude of triumph, you can see yourself the way God sees you; a work in progress. Struggles turn into opportunities to exercise your faith and watch God do the impossible when you have this attitude of triumph! You simply don’t see failure as a possibility. When life gives you a lemon, you make lemonade! I encourage you to stop looking at what you can’t do, and begin to see everything in your life as an opportunity for God to cause you to triumph! In the middle of that hard place, ask God for His wisdom, and ask Him to show you the solution; then expect things to work out, and live as though you really believe they will! Romans 8:31-32 reads, What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? With God all things are possible (Matthew 19:26). And ALL THINGS are possible to him who believes (Mark 9:23). Expect the best today!
