Pastor Dr. Norman Vincent Peale wrote the book: “The Power of Positive Thinking” and there he writes: “There is a basic law that like attracts like. Negative thinking definitely attracts negative results. Conversely, if a person habitually thinks optimistically and hopefully his positive thinking sets in motion creative forces— and success, instead of eluding him, flows toward him.”
Dr. Peale passed away in 1994, but his writing inspired many people live out a positive life and experience blessings and successes. We cannot always control our circumstances, but we have the choice to decide how we react to them. When you look for the good things in it, you do it because Paul in Romans 8, 28 says: “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God.” Then the key is: “to those who love God”.
When you have turned away from your sins and received the Lord Jesus as the Master of your life, he gives you his own Spirit inside that loves God fully! We love because He loved us first by sending Jesus to take the punishment of all our sins and wrongdoings. When you get His own Spirit inside of you, the most natural in your life is to love God! And when you do that, you just know that whatever happens to you will work together for good for you! What a wonderful life!
You make it a habit in your life to have faith in God, praise Him for everything and expect the best in every situation. Elton Trueblood said: “Faith is not belief without proof, but trust without reservation.” It becomes natural for you to believe God for good things, and you make it a habit to see something good in everything you face!
