A Confident Woman Is Positive
by Joyce Meyer
Being negative and being confident do not go together. Like oil and water, they just don’t mix. Being negative opens the door to a lot of problems and disappointments, which fuels the fire for more negativity. Fear is the “dark room” where all your negatives are developed. So why not look at the brighter side of life and believe something good is going to happen to you?
Many people, when encouraged to think positively, often reply, “That is not reality.” But the truth is, positive thinking can change our current reality. God is positive—it’s the way He is, the way He thinks and the way He encourages us to be. Romans 8:28 says, And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose…(NLT). Therefore, being positive is simply a matter of looking at things from God’s perspective. It’s keeping our thoughts in line with the truth of His Word.
What kind of thoughts are filling your head? Are they agreeing with Scripture? If they are not, then they didn’t originate with God. If you want to fulfill God’s plan for your life, you will need to learn to think positively so you can become the bold, confident woman God created you to be!
