OVERCOMING THE “I CAN’T” MENTALITY

OVERCOMING THE “I CAN’T” MENTALITY

“We saw the giants…and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight.” Nu 13:33 NKJV

Wherever you go, you take your mentality with you. After four hundred years as captives in Egypt, the Israelites developed a slave mentality. Because they were dominated for so long, they never learned to be decision makers. They functioned best when other people told them what to do. Consequently when they approached the Promised Land and their leader sent twelve spies in to check it out, ten came back saying, “The inhabitants of the land are giants. We are like grasshoppers compared to them.” But two of the spies, Joshua and Caleb, knew God was with them so they reported, “The inhabitants of the land are like grasshoppers to us. We are well able to overcome them” (See v. 30). Joshua and Caleb developed the capacity to see things from God’s vantage point. It spelled the difference between success and failure—and this one secret will change your world. You learn to “mount up with wings” like an eagle (Is 40:31) and see every situation from a higher viewpoint: through God’s eyes! You stop looking at the Devil’s picture of defeat and focus on God’s portrait of success. This is your ticket to the Promised Land! Start speaking what you desire—not what you dread (See Ps 107:2). Speak your expectations—not your fears. This isn’t mind-over-matter or pop psychology. It’s standing on God’s Word declaring, “I am what God says I am…I have what God says I have…and I can do what God says I can do!” (See Php 4:13).

I have been browsing on-line more than 3 hours nowadays, but I by
no means found any interesting article like yours.
It's pretty price sufficient for me. Personally, if all
site owners and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the web will likely be much more useful than ever before.

When I initially commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I get four emails with the same
comment. Is there a means you are able to remove me from that service?
Thank you!
