Matthew 6:22, TLB
"f your eye is pure, there will be sunshine in your soul."
When we have an attitude of faith--we're positive, hopeful, expecting good things--that pure eye is letting sunshine into our life. But when we go around stressed out, worried, or thinking the clouds over our health or finances are never going to change, that's stopping the sun. It's causing more clouds to roll in, more defeat, and more mediocrity. We have to start letting some sunshine into our life. It doesn't start with God; it starts with us.
Instead of being discouraged by the dark clouds, our attitude should be, "Any moment this can change. Healing is coming, promotion is coming, the right person is coming, breakthroughs are coming." If you want to see the clouds open up, you have to have this expectancy. Shake off the negativity, quit talking about what's not working out, and turn it around. "God, I know You're in control of these clouds. They will pass. I believe at any moment I'm going to see that unexpected sunshine."
Prayer for Today
"Father, thank You that I walk by faith and not by sight. Thank You that Your power can turn clouded situations around, open the right door, and bring an abundance of unexpected favor. I am living with a sense of expectancy that You are about to bring some unexpected sunshine. In Jesus' Name, Amen."
