Look Through The Negative.
Did you ever notice how quick we see the wrong – long before we see the right? I have learned that negative thinking is our enemy. It will keep you stuck in your past, your problems, your pains and your perversions. We have to look through the negative.
“According to scientists, we have about 60,000 thoughts a day (about one thought per second). And what’s even more startling is that of those 60,000 thoughts, 95% are the same thoughts we had yesterday, and the day before, and the day before that.” Our minds are playing the same thoughts over and over – just like iTunes on replay.
Now that wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t for the next statistic: “for the average person, 80% of those thoughts are negative. If you do the math that means most of us have more than 45,000 negative thoughts each day!” Choose to see the good in everything.
Stop seeing the negative in YOU.
Stop seeing the negative in OTHERS.
You see, you will never have healthy relationships with a negative outlook. Let’s be honest, seeing the negative sometimes too easy! We have to look through the negative to see the positive or else we will sweat the small stuff all the time. It takes 10 positive statements to overcome 1 negative statement! Choose to be a life-giving person.
Jesus. His friend Lazarus is dead. He has been in a tomb for 4 days. Many people were consoling Mary and Martha on the loss of their brother. Jesus finally arrives. He simply asks, “Where did you put him?” He goes to the grave and calls “Lazarus out.” He comes out alive.
Jesus looked through the grave to see Lazarus’ resurrection. Look through your grave situation and you will always see God’s divine intervention! Look through the negative and you will see the hand of God.
