A Kingdom life is a positive life

A Kingdom Life is a Positive Life.

 

Live the Kingdom way of life – Matthew 6:33 – But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

 

Once you replace negative thoughts with positive kingdom thoughts, you’ll start having positive results.”

(Note: Not thoughts because our thoughts become our actions)

Do you really believe that everything about the Kingdom way of life should be a Positive life?

That’s why it’s important to meditate on positive things. Avoid pondering on destructive, harmful, bad, negative things.

Philippians 4:8 (Amp) – Finally believers, whatever is true, whatever is honourable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [centre your mind on them and implant them in your heart].

It doesn’t mean you ignore or simply don’t think about negative things at all.

Negativity is all around us! On TV, the newspapers, billboards, magazines and human “carriers.”

It means you don’t waste your precious time and energy brooding over negative things.

We need to learn to speak positively over our own lives and about others

To confess positively means to speak what is in line with God’s will and purpose in His WORD.

Kingdom people are positive thinkers and speakers

A Kingdom culture is a positive culture

It is God’s will for us to meditate and confess positively

The Holy Spirit will never expect or demand of us to thing (Meditate) and speak (confess) negatively about anything or anyone. (We are positively charged)

God expects of us to remain within the border of the principle of positivity

A great biblical example of someone who practiced the principle of positivity was King David

Psalm 23:1-6 (NIV) – 1The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. 2He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, 3he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. 4Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 5You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Jesus Christ taught and practised the principle of positivity:

Luke 8:50 (NIV) – Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; just believe and she will be healed.” (Be positive about the negative situation)

Luke 12:32 (NIV) – “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.”

Matthew 6:27 (NIV) – Can any one of you by *worrying add a single hour to your life?

*Don’t expect negative destructive things.

Matthew 12:35 (NIV) – A good man brings good things out of the *good stored up in him, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him.

*Pondering on positive, good, uplifting things.

Mark 7:20-23 (NIV) – 20He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. 21For it is from within, out of a person’s heart that evil thoughts come-sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. 23All these evils come from inside and defiles a person.”

New Testament scriptures proving this principle of positivity:

Ephesians 4:29 (NIV) – Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

James 5:9 (NIV) – Don’t *grumble against one another, brothers and sisters, or you will be judged. The Judge is standing at the door!

*Complain – speaking negatively about your life and others

Old Testament Scriptures proving this principle of positivity:

Proverbs 4:23 (NIV) – Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it

Psalm 19:14 (NIV) – May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

The major benefits of positive meditation:

Positive meditation – activates positive life changing emotions and feelings such as: Love, Well-being, Joy, Optimism, Calmness, Confidence and Excitement.

Negative meditation – activates negative emotions such as: Anger, Depression, Sadness, Distress, Fear, Insecurity and being uninspired.

We have all heard of G.I.G.O (Garbage In = Garbage Out)

Consider this verse again:

Psalm 19:14 (NIV) – May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer

Positive meditation produces life changing beliefs:

Positive Meditation                    Negative Meditation

1.God is good all the time             1.God is bad

2.Life is good                               2.Life sucks

3.Anything is possible                   3.It’s not possible

4.We can do it                             4.We cannot do it

5.Goodness and favour                 5.I only have bad luck
are coming my way

 

How to practice a Positive Kingdom Life:

#1 You must be fully convinced of the benefits of living a Positive Kingdom life

#2 You need to make a lifelong commitment to God and yourself to daily practice and uphold this principle

God has given us all the gift of free will and choice

The Holy Spirit will convict and inspire you to make the decision but you need to decide to make that lifelong commitment.

#3 Prayer is a Kingdom principle

The more time you spend with God the more Spirit-filled and Spirit led life will be. A praying Christian is a positive Christian

#4 To meditate, speak and live a positive kingdom life

You must read your bible to gain understanding and knowledge from God’s word.

You can’t speak or mediate on what you don’t know

Psalm 19:14 (NIV) – May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer
