God is testing our attitude when we’re afflicted. We are in charge of how we react and of our attitude. Psalm 119:75 I know, O Lord, that thy judgments are right, and that thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me. When we’re afflicted, it takes effort to keep a good attitude. God chose to refine us […]
We choose our attitude every day. Jesus never had a bad attitude even though a lot of bad things happened to him. Psalm 84:11…the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. God wants us to choose a right attitude no matter what happens.

I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.” Luke 18:9-14
