Attitude is everything when it comes to life. The same situation means and works different things bringing different results to different people depending on their attitude. A good attitude in a bad situation makes the circumstance much better. A bad attitude in a good situation makes the circumstance worse. Life presents the same challenges to everyone, give or take. But how we turn out all depends on our attitude. You must therefore deliberately watch your attitude to ensure it is positive and can take you through life as a victor not a victim.
Testing and trials provide the oven where our attitudes can be properly tested and developed. That is why God commands us to be positive in our trials in order to overcome the situation and maximise the moment. Rejoicing means you keep a positive mindset and heart. It keeps you open hearted and expectant. It also means your faith in God is intact and you expect some wonderful things soon. Life will throw all sorts of tests your way. Many times you go through things that you honestly would rather not have. Remember to keep positive and rejoice in your trials. It doesn’t say enjoy the tests but rather stay positive in a negative situation. Don’t let the situation steal your joy. Rejoice in the Lord at all times.
SCRIPTURE READING: Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!
DEVOTION PRAYER: Today, I choose to rejoice in the Lord at all times, amen.
