The Power of Positive Thinking
In case you missed the latest episode on LoveWorldUSATV, Pastor Gregory gave a truly enlightening sermon during the “Power to Change Today”, which addresses the immense power of positive thinking, coinciding with the February month of change, linked below. As Pastor Gregory stated, “the enemy is trying to keep us small, defeated, crawling through life as victims of whatever he brings our way, god has created us for so much more, he created us to fly”. This statement reminds us that throughout the day we are faced with struggles that are here to test our faith, or temptations to drive us away from God, but must use the power of God’s love to fight them. “Change can happen within you rather than by you“- Pastor Gregory Dickow.
We must use the power of prayer, we should bind Satan’s evil aura, eviscerate his negative thoughts that perpetuate within our mind through Jesus Christ. We should never allow ourselves to have such a low opinion of ourselves and begin to realize that Jesus values you so much. As such Pastor Gregory recites that “Jesus paid for us with his blood” the life you live should be spreading his message, his joy, and his love. “For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect” (1 Peter 1:18-19).
The expression of ‘count your blessings’ is true, as you have life, and you have been blessed and placed on this earth to fulfill your dreams and to achieve remarkable things. Pastor Chris states that “Giving back to your community through charity and selfless acts are the most rewarding actions that a Christian can do in life”. Value yourself not on what you own, not on your appearance, rather the way that Christ sees you. Being humble and mindful of others is righteous and a religious duty for all. These values are a part of the cornerstones of Christian life, when you give to your fellow man it shall return in abundance. “They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share (Timothy 6:18)”
