January 12, 2021. The choice is yours to live a lifestyle of being upbeat in a downtrodden and exploited society. Daily you are being bombarded with a great deal of negativity from multiple outlets. The ways and means with which you filter out the good from among the bad is a challenge to say the least, but it is definitely doable. Achieving and maintaining a true sense of positivity requires true devotion and commitment. Do your best to remain optimistic.
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS:
When everything around you seems to be unstable, it is not so for you, My people. You are established on the firm foundation of redemption. Circumstances change, but I am the same yesterday, today and forever. Do not be blown off course by the winds of adversity. Stand strong and unwavering on truth and righteousness.
Ephesians 4:14-15 “We should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head-Christ.”

Do not go that way again. Belief arises out of expectation. You expect all will be okay don’t you? Of course you do. Expect in My promises. The walk of belief will follow by believing the promises in My Word.
Hebrews 11:1 ”NOW BELIEF is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] expect, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [belief] perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses.” Bev Robinson
John 14:27 (TPT) “I leave the gift of peace with you—My peace. Not the kind of fragile peace given by the world, but My perfect peace. Don’t yield to fear or be troubled in your hearts—instead, be courageous!” Kevin Robinson
January 12, 2021. From what perspective do you see the world around you? The enemy would have you see from a viewpoint other than Mine. You may see from a selfish perspective, you may see yourself as defeated, or you may see yourself as insignificant. Those perspectives are not from Me. My view of you and My desire for your view of yourself is positive. I see you as a victor and as an overcomer. See yourself in that way.
1 John 5:4-5 “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our belief. Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?” Jonas Bohlin
