Overcoming the ‘I Can’t’ Mentality

Overcoming the ‘I Can’t’ Mentality

Post by Evangelista_GP on Thu Jun 30, 2016 1:47 pm

We saw the giants … and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight.’

Numbers 13:33

Wherever you go, you take your mentality with you. After four hundred years as captives in Egypt, the Israelites needed to adjust to their new freedom and learn to step into unfamiliar situations. They functioned best when other people told them what to do. Consequently when they approached the Promised Land and their leader sent twelve spies in to check it out, ten came back saying, ‘The inhabitants of the land are giants. We are like grasshoppers compared to them.’ But two of the spies, Joshua and Caleb, knew God was with them so they reported, ‘The inhabitants of the land are like grasshoppers to us. We are well able to overcome them’ (see v. 30). Joshua and Caleb developed the capacity to see things from God’s vantage point. It spelled the difference between success and failure - and this one secret will change your world. You learn to ‘mount up with wings’ like an eagle (Isaiah 40:31 KJV) and see every situation from a higher viewpoint: through God’s eyes! You stop looking at the devil’s picture of defeat and focus on God’s portrait of success. This is your ticket to the Promised Land! Start speaking what you desire - not what you dread (see Psalm 107:2). Speak your expectations - not your fears. This isn’t mind-over-matter or pop psychology. It’s standing on God’s Word declaring, ‘I am what God says I am…I have what God says I have…and I can do what God says I can do!’ (see Philippians 4:13).
2 Chron 19-20, Acts 24

When I read this, what comes in my mind is that 'I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me'. We shouldn't proclaim this verse like a slogan but like a reality.
With the amount of challenges we have in our everyday life, I think it's the best attitude to have. Anyway, when we surrender to God, He does it inside of us. We all know God can't fail so we already have success in all we are undertaking, according to His will.

Be blessed everyone :-)

Exactly! That's the problem we humans face,we always see limitations in everything, we hardly see the chances, the opportunities in them.That's why so many people when they encounter some challenges, they give up even before they face them. God help to realize that we can do all things through Christ, who strengthens us.
