"YES CAN DO: How to Dare with an Attitude"
www.newperceptions.tv

Attitude

  • Charles Swindoll: "This may shock you, but I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude. It is more important than my past, my education, my successes or failures, what other people think of me or say about me, my circumstances or my position. Attitude is that ‘single string’ that keeps me going or cripples my progress. It alone fuels my fire or assaults my hope. When my attitudes are right, there’s no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me."
  • Job 42:1-2—"Then Job replied to the LORD, ‘I know You all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted.'"

Attitude Adjustment

  • 1 Samuel 14:1-15
  • Matthew 16:18—"'I will build My church, and the of Hades will not overcome it.'"
  • Ellen White: "The battle raged. Victory alternated from side to side. Now the soldiers of the cross gave way, 'as when a standardbearer fainteth.' Isaiah 10:18. But their apparent retreat was but to gain a more advantageous position. Shouts of joy were heard. A song of praise to God went up, and angel voices united in the song, as Christ’s soldiers planted His banner on the walls of fortresses held by the enemy. The Captain of our salvation was ordering the battle and sending support to His soldiers. His power was mightily displayed, encouraging them to press the battle to the ."
  • Erwin Raphael McManus: "Jonathan had an unwavering confidence in God’s capacity. He had absolute trust in God’s character. He seemed resolute about whether God could be trusted. That was settled for him. Jonathan’s focus was not, What is God’s will for my life? but How can I give my life to fulfill God’s will?" (Seizing Your Divine Moment 64)
    • "I know this may be a real stretch, but it is always right to do what’s right, even if it turns out ." (65)
    • "We should not be surprised that a lifelong journey with God might bring us suffering and hardship. If the Cross teaches us anything, it teaches us that sometimes God comes through we’ve been killed!" (65)
    • "Jonathan wasn’t choosing to die, but he was choosing how he would live. He left the consequence of his actions in the hands of God. He chose to do what he knew was right. . . . God was doing something in history, and Jonathan gave his life to it." (66)
    • Oswald Chambers: "When it is a question of God’s Almighty Spirit, never say ''. Never let the limitation of natural ability come in. If we have received the Holy Spirit, God expects the work of the Holy Spirit to be manifested in us." (My Utmost for His Highest 111)
  • Ellen White: "We need to pray as we have never prayed before for the baptism of the Holy Spirit; for if ever there was a time we needed this baptism, it is now. There is nothing the Lord has more frequently told us He would bestow upon us, and nothing He would be more glorified in bestowing, than the Holy Spirit." "It is beyond the power of language to express the it brings to God’s people.” (Signs of the Times 10-11-1899, Manuscript Releases 2:15)
