My Attitude Is A Decision

In review of Hebrews 6:9 it says, “Beloved, we are confident of better things concerning you, yes, things that accompany salvation.”

Bottom Line:
We are confident that you were meant for better things, things that come with salvation.

What this means to me:
I can have confidence that I’m meant for better things, blessings that come from my salvation.

In today's' verse from Hebrews chapter 6 we hear Paul telling us that we eventually need to move away from the basic teachings of Christ and move toward becoming more mature in our understanding and faith. Paul is confident that we are meant for better things, things that come with salvation. For our God is not unjust. He will not forget how we show and have shown love to him by caring for other believers. Paul's great desire for us is that we keep on loving others like this for as long as life lasts, in order to make certain that what we hope for will come true. Then we won't become spiritually dull and indifferent. Instead, we follow the example of those before us who will inherit God's promises because of their faith and endurance.
I’m reminded this morning that the Cross means that what I used to be is over. I can let it go in the Jesus’ name. God will never consult my past to determine my future. Losers focus on what they’re going through, while champions focus on what they’re going to. My attitude will be the first key ingredient on my journey to success. So, what am I focusing on now  that is affecting my attitude.

“I can’t” is the brother of “I don’t want to.” My attitude is an inward feeling expressed by my behavior, and it is a choice that should never be based on circumstances. My behavior will be different when I decide to make it different.

My attitude will determine the the quality of my life and my relationships. It’s not what happens to me, but what happens in me that matters. So, today I make a choice to be happy and let the quality of my life improve.
