“You Need to Change that ATTITUDE of Yours!” Have you ever heard that said before? Characteristically, when we hear anything about a person having an attitude—it’s not good. Your attitude determines your altitude is a familiar phrase that means your attitude plays a large part with you moving forward or holding you back in life. All in all, too often “attitude” has gotten a bad rap. Nevertheless, I want to focus on how having a positive attitude—is a good thing.
Side effect: A positive attitude is eye-catchingly gorgeous.
There is beauty beyond the physical attributes of a person who expresses an assertive boldness without stepping on others; a person who has unwavering convictions without being rude and defiant; a person who is trustworthy and honest without ulterior motives. When the right attitude is pointed in the right direction for the right cause, that’s a good thing! As a matter of fact, it’s fertile ground for faith to grow.
When genuine faith is operating in our lives, our attitude can’t be hidden. It gets the most ardent unbelievers’ attention. Even if they can’t put their finger on it, they know there’s something different about a person who walks in the confidence of God’s love.
An attitude of assurance is strikingly noticeable.
We can’t help but to walk with attitude when we embrace powerful Scriptures like:
No weapon formed against me shall prosper. (Isaiah 54:17)
I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13)
Greater is He that’s in me than he that is in the world. (I John 4:4)
With God on my side who can be against me? (Psalm 118:6)
The attitude that we display isn’t arrogant, haughty, or supercilious, but one of humility, meekness, and submissiveness. A humble disposition illustrates the faith and trust that we have in our great, mighty, powerful heavenly Father.
Walk proudly and show your Attitude!
