Developing A Winning Mindset
One of the the things that I have discovered is that as God brings you UP, the enemy wants to bring you DOWN. And in order to stay on the path of God’s blessings we have to determine to remain strong.
So how do you do that? First, you have to recognize YOU WILL WIN. No matter what you experience you will always be given victory … the Bible declares, “But I thank God, who always leads us in victory because of Christ” (2 Corinthians 2:14 – GWT). When the enemy comes in and tries to discourage you … just remind him of his future!
Second, you have to KEEP YOUR FOCUS. The main tactic of the enemy is to distract you. He wants to get your eyes on your problems and off of Jesus. Don’t let him. Keep your focus on Jesus. No matter how long you serve God or how successful you become you will always face attacks. Paul told the church in Corinth: “So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen” (2 Corinthians 4:18). In other words keep your focus on what God will do.
When the enemy sends an all out assault – don’t get discourage … remain strong – He is only messing with you because YOU HAVE GREAT POTENTIAL! If God is blessing that’s when the devil starts messing. Stand your ground. Be strong. God will elevate your life at just the right time!!!
