STAYING POSITIVE UNDER PRESSURE
THROUGH A WINNING ATTITUDE
We've been studying the book of Philippians, in
an effort to discover some of the secrets of the
Apostle Paul's victorious attitude in life. The
apostle had a supernatural ability to stay positive,
joyful and triumphant--even in the face of extreme
hardship and adversity.
As I read the Scriptures, Believe that the
apostle was, without a doubt, the greatest spiritual
giant who ever lived--outside of the Lord Jesus
Himself. He was a man who was mighty in spirit. He
was a man who did more for the kingdom of God than any
other man who ever lived.
I think we need to understand that the same
victorious life that was enjoyed by the Apostle Paul
is available to every believer. It really is possible
for common folk like you and me to become mighty in
spirit and experience the same triumphant lifestyle the
Apostle Paul experienced.
In the book of Philippians we are discovering some
of the secrets of Paul's spiritual power. I think that
one of the powerful secrets of Paul's victorious life
was simply this he had a winning attitude. He was a
high achiever. The word retreat was not in his vocabulary.
He had developed the heart of a champion.
In the verses we are about to read, the Apostle
Paul reveals his driving determination to win.
