Stay In The Positive, Joyce Meyer
If we take our concerns to the Lord in prayer and then continue to worry about them, we are mixing a positive and a negative force. If we add them together, we come up with zero. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to have zero power, so I try not to mix prayer and worry. God spoke to me one time and said, “Many people operate with zero power because they are always mixing the positives and the negatives. They have a positive confession for a little while, then a negative confession for a little while. They trust for a little while, then they worry for a little while. As a result, they just go back and forth, never really making any progress.” Let’s not magnify the bad – let’s magnify the good! Let’s make it larger by talking about it, by being positive in our thoughts, in our attitudes, in our outlook, in our words and in our actions. Why not make a decision to stay in the positive by trusting God and refusing to worry? Practice being positive in each situation that arises. Even if whatever is taking place at the moment is not so good, expect God to bring good out of it.
