No matter what kind of situation you’re facing today, your attitude is a huge factor in what the outcome will be.
It’s so easy to slip into a bad attitude. I mean, if you wake me up from a sound sleep, I’ll show you how quickly I can fall into one! Our human nature wants go into agreement with the negative. Proverbs 17:22 says, “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine.” You can decide to be happy, to have a merry heart. Even medical science is proving what the Bible has said all along, that a merry heart…or a good attitude…can literally release chemicals in your brain that help create healing in your physical body. Instead of going into agreement with the negative situations around you, go into agreement with the Word of God. Jesus told us that we would have problems in this world. “But,” He said, “be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
