Episode 20 - Victories, Must-Wins and Silver Lining

“Be cheerful with joyous celebration in every season of life. Let your joy overflow! And let gentleness be seen in every relationship, for our Lord is ever near. Don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell him every detail of your life, then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will guard your heart and mind through Jesus Christ. Keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God, praising him always.”


Such an instruction and an encouragement for us. Cheerfulness and a positive outlook is a choice. It’s not something that just happens to us. It’s really a spiritual disciplining of the mind  - taking every thought captive and judging it according to the Word of God and tossing out anything that doesn’t align with what God says is true. One of the pastors who influenced my life the most is Bill Johnson from Redding, CA and he says that everything thought that does not inspire hope is under the influence of a lie. And  you see the silver lining in every loss and give God the glory in every victory
