Bold Vision vs. Timid Doubt: Unpacking The Power of Your Attitude

Attitude and Effort

Numbers 13:30-31

“Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it. But the men who had gone up with him said, “We can’t attack those people; they are stronger than we are.”

Never underestimate the power of your attitude. As we see in the scriptures above, there are two different attitudes towards the Israelites moving into the promised land. Caleb chooses to believe the calling that God has placed in front of them, while the other group chooses to believe what they can see which is the challenge in front of them.

This life will not be easy, there will be challenges, but God calls us to face these challenges head-on with the confidence that He has already conquered the battle for us.

As you wrestle with the challenges in front of you, do not let it bring you down and negatively affect your attitude. 

Your attitude can determine the following in your life:
  1. Determines your approach to life
  2. Determines your relationship with people
  3. Often the difference between success and failure
  4. Your attitude at the beginning of a task will affect its outcome more than anything.
  5. Can turn problems into blessings.
  6. Our attitude is not automatically good just because we belong to God.
Don’t let others or your challenges dictate your attitude. Wherever you are today, create your positive mental attitude and let your light shine for Christ.
