5. The New Attitude to Others

To lift myself out of misfortune and poverty
And become the person God created me to be
I need to change my thinking about Myself:

If I have not dealt with others
With their highest good in mind;

If I have been thoughtless and selfish
thinking only of my own interests;
I cannot expect others
To want to maintain a relationship with me.
If I have said one thing with my words,
and lived my life in opposition to my words;
I cannot expect other people to trust me, or
To want to maintain a relationship with me.

Sometimes when we have had a great deal of misfortune in life, we may treat others in a way that causes them to turn away from us, and in a way that causes them not to be willing to help us anymore.

It is clear therefore that to continue treating people this way, will not please God nor make us any friends.
Therefore, we need to change our lifestyle completely where other people are concerned.

This will open the door for the blessings, both of God and other people to begin to flow into our life and increase in abundance!

Father, forgive me if I have held others in mind and blamed them for the misfortune in my life.
I realise that the longer I hold a grudge against them in my heart, the longer I will stay a victim of poverty.
Therefore today, I release them out of my heart and give them to You to deal with for me.
I turn myself in the direction of being a blessing to those around me, so that Your blessing can come into my life,
In Jesus' name I pray,

There's a new thought here tomorrow.
See you then, God willing!

Psalm 107:
17 Some fools turned against God and suffered for the evil they did.
18 They refused to eat anything, so they almost died.
19 In their misery they cried out to the LORD, and he saved them from their troubles.
20 God gave the command and healed them, so they were saved from dying.
21 Let them give thanks to the LORD for his love and for the miracles he does for people.
22 Let them offer sacrifices to thank him. With joy they should tell what he has done.
(New Century Bible)

Daily Pointer:

Have you ever felt that
fate has dealt you a dirty hand in life?
Are there cycles of failure
in specific areas in your circumstances?
Do you sometimes feel cursed or blighted?

On this web site
we want to examine some of the reasons why
it is reasonable to feel this way,
and suggest a cure for the problem.
