Thinking positively

Deut. 1:30, 40: "The Lord your God, who is going before you, will fight for you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes … But as for you, turn around and set out toward the desert along the route to the Red Sea" (NIV).

The Israelites loved and trusted God as He led them out of captivity in Egypt. They had witnessed great miracles! It didn't take long, however, before they began to grumble and complain about having to walk across the desert to the Promised Land. In the midst of difficult circumstances, they doubted Him instead of focusing on His faithfulness in the past. Ultimately, this lack of trust cost their generation the privilege of seeing the Promised Land. 

Do you really trust the Lord? Most of us find it much easier to trust when things are going well, but when things are difficult, our faith in Him can be tested. In these times, it is important to remember when God sustained you through difficulties. Remembering those faith stories will help you and your family maintain an attitude towards God that is positive and anticipatory.

Negative attitudes lead to the "wilderness."
