Attitude of the Day




Set your attitude for the day. Do not allow another person or thing to do so. Wake up and determine how you will feel today. Make sure it is what you should be feeling.

Go to bed meditating on Scripture and truth. Filling your heart with truth will help you wake up with the right attitude.

Pray during the night. As you drift off to sleep, tell God that you love Him. If you get up at night, tell Him again. As you get up in the AM, tell God once again that you love Him. Tell Him that you want to do His will for the day.

As you go to bed and wake up, be sure to say thank you and be grateful to God for the life that He has given you.

Make it a habit to get into the Word of God and prayer as you start your day. Pray yourself happy. In other words, let your requests be made known to God. Tell Him with all the intensity of your heart, then say thank you. Start your day trusting God to work in and through you.

Get the bitterness and unforgiveness out of your heart! Enjoy the forgiveness that God has given you and give the same to all others. The forgiven forgive! Remember that as your motto.

Past grudges. Has somebody done you wrong? Are you still eaten up with bitterness? Get rid of it. Forsake it. Tell God about it. Bury it in the grave of God’s forgetfulness. Forgive them. If they won’t accept it, put forgiveness in the bank for when they will accept it. But you upload it so they can download it when they need it. But don’t carry it around. A purpose will liberate you from the past. Adrian Rogers, “The Purpose-Centered Life: The Magnificent Obsession,” in Adrian Rogers Sermon Archive (Signal Hill, CA: Rogers Family Trust, 2017), Php 3:10–14.

Remember that today is all you have. Yesterday is gone, and tomorrow may never be. Remember that each day is all you have. Sufficient to the day is the evil thereof.

“Wherever you are, be all there. Live to the hilt every situation you believe to be the will of God.” Elisabeth Elliot, Through Gates of Splendor (Carol Stream, IL: Tyndale, 2015).

Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.—ABRAHAM LINCOLN Terry Felber, Am I Making Myself Clear?

Why don't you determine to set your attitude for the day? Decide that you will enjoy the day that the Lord has given you! Decide that you will make the most of this day! Seek God in all you do today!
