Positive Thinking

Something to think about.

Positive Thinking

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. Ephesians 6:10-11
All of the positive thinking all, of the self-affirming declarations, all of the self-edification that we adhere to, will be empty platitudes without the basis of Gods strength. If the basis of our positive attitudes and self-affirming declarations are ourselves, they will fail. They will leave you empty. To win in this life, we need the strength of God. We need to recognize it is His strength that will lead us to victory. That victory can only be achieved on His terms, not ours. If you stand defenseless before the enemy of God, your platitudes will not save you only the armor of God will prevail. It is His armor, His strength, His might that will bring you to that victory you seek.

About Ruben

I am the owner of a custom furniture shop in Orlando, Florida. I had a heart attack back in 2010. As a result of complications from the heart attack I almost died . The road to recovery took about eighteen months and even now I still have issues to deal with. As a result of almost dying many things have changed. Most notably my concept of time. By that I mean that I am acutely aware of my mortality, not morbidly but realistically. Before the heart attack I thought I would make it to 70's, 80'S or as my mother into 90's but now I realize everyday is a gift. I don't take it for granted. That is why I write I have something to say and I want to say it, before I can't say it anymore.
