Your Attitude Will Determine Your Outcome

Matthew 8:23-26 records an incident in which Jesus and his disciples got into a boat and a violent storm with strong winds and waves began to dangerously rock the boat. Jesus was obviously in a deep sleep when they woke him up saying, "save us WE ARE GOING TO DIE." Jesus rebuked them by calling them fearful cowards and faithless doubters. Then he rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.
Pro 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue
Don't let the storms of this life cause your attitude to change so that you end up losing your faith and your trust in God. You'll end up speaking death over your destiny. Your words and actions are dictated by the attitude of your heart. That is why it is important that you are in tune with what you believe.
Luke 6:45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.
Rather you should take control of your circumstances with a positive attitude that everything is going to be alright and that every thing happens for a reason and that God is in control and he has a purpose for allowing things to happen. Then with a positive attitude already knowing the outcome, command your problems, mountains and storms to be still, uprooted, removed and cast into the sea. Then call forth your blessings and promises. Watch what happens when you change your attitude. At the end of the trial, you will gain understanding and in the future you will not be deceived by what appears to be negative circumstances. Instead you will see them as a stepping stone to your destiny and an opportunity for your faith to be used for the Lord.
