Are you facing a troubling situation right now? We all experience times of trouble. But what is a right mental attitude when it comes to facing those trials? How should we think when trouble comes to our lives?
When trouble comes to you, pick up your Bible and read Isaiah 54:14,17. Say it, and say it, and say it, and say it. Then turn to Psalm 27 and say it, and say it, and say it. Then begin to act upon the Word. The rest is up to God. You are not the one who is responsible for bringing the Word to pass, God is. Start out by praising Him for your deliverance, and if you have to, offer the sacrifice of joy. Thank Him that He has provided a way of escape for you. You do not praise God for the trial. You praise God your deliverance. Praise God for the power of His Word. Praise God for the name of Jesus. Praise God that you are a winner, and that He hears and answers your prayers.
As you begin praising God as a sacrifice, you will finally end up praising Him because joy has come in its fullness.
Now, I have not said to act like you don’t have any problems. Problems are real. But the Word is the highest form of reality. Laughing at the devil and offering the sacrifices of joy are some things that you can about your problem. Some people will just mentally shut themselves away from the problem and pretend that it does not exist. This is not what I am talking about. Somewhere down the road, they are going to have to come back to reality and the problem will still be there.
Jesus said in John 17:17, “Thy word is truth.” God’s Word reality. When you acquire a right mental attitude about every situation based upon the Word of God, then you are actually putting yourself in the position where God is able to provide an avenue of escape. You are not pretending that the problem doesn’t exist; you are actually applying the spiritual power that will cause it to depart FAR from you.
How far is far? The Bible says that Jesus is far above all principalities, and power and might and dominion and every name that has been named. How far do you suppose that is?
Well, however far Jesus is above demonic activity that is how far oppression, fear and terror should be from you. When you have a right mental attitude and offer the sacrifice of joy, your problems will begin to be far from you! Receive that today!
