Pave the Way for Victory!
"In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation"(Psalm 5:3, NIV)
Did you know that every morning you have the opportunity to set the tone for your whole day? When you put God first and decide to go out with a grateful attitude and a positive frame of mind, you'll not only feel better, but you're going to draw in the good things of God. You are paving the way for success and victory. But, if you get up thinking, “Man, life's a drag. Nothing good ever happens to me. It's going to be a lousy day,” then you are going to attract defeat, failure, and mediocrity.
Today, choose to set your day in the right direction. Find something to thank God for. If you have to, make a list of all the good things in your life and post it on your bathroom mirror. As you continually choose to set your mind on Him first thing in the morning, you'll be paving the way to victory and enjoying the blessing and favor He has in store for you!
