We live in a time of division, change, and stress. Don’t let these things become all-consuming; it’s important to focus on the well-being of yourself and others. Here are 3 Bible-based tips to improve your positivity in 2022.
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
Not a single incident or thought occurs in the world that God is unaware of. Nothing happens in the world that God does not allow. God will keep and fulfill all his promises for believers.
So many people today are caught up in troubled by what is happening in the world of politics and in social changes. So much so that it has become all-consuming for some people.
But no matter what happens in the world, remember that as a believer, you are not of the world (John 17:16) and should not be conformed by (Romans 12:2) the ways of the world. Yours is the kingdom of heaven. Don’t let the happenings of the world distract you from the peace of salvation in Jesus Christ.
“For nothing will be impossible with God.”
You are right where you need to be. Whatever mistakes you’ve made in your life can be overturned through repentance, prayer, and faith in God. The sacrifice of Jesus Christ promises:
“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,”
The above is a good reason for much joy and happiness. Despite the title of a Christian-inspired book called “Your Best Life Now,” the Bible promises that your best life is to come.
When you feel weak and need strength, lean on Christ.
“I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
– Philippians 4:8
Take a break and tune out from negative subjects in the news, stop “doom scrolling” on social media, and instead, immerse yourself in God’s word.
It’s hard to develop a positive mindset if you bombard yourself with negative information.
That is not to say you should turn away from all negative things or reality and pretend it’s not there. The idea is to balance the information you put into your mind coming from a greater amount of positive input than negative.
Pray to the Holy Spirit to help you develop a positive mindset. Remember to live by the Spirit of God and Christ.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”
– Galatians 5:22-23
