“Pursue, Overtake, and Recover All”
“How You Look at Life”

Proverbs 22:9 Matthew 6 II Kings 4 Acts 27

• How you look at life will determine how life looks at you

• When things don’t go the way you want them to go - Or when you fail – Just keep pushing

• It’s about being persistent – Doing what you have to do - Hanging in there

• It’s about pursuing, overtaking and recovering all

• Where is your focus? – What you focus on will determine your attitude

• Focus on the positive and not the negative

• Whatever attitude you except is what you become

• A person with a poor attitude is always unhappy, always frustrated, and always a human magnet for bad things

• If you don’t adjust your attitude – You will never get to where God wants you to be

• Your attitude is always under attack

• If you get a negative attitude towards any area of your life – Things will not go good for you

• Change your attitude – Change your life

• If you can maintain a good attitude – You can come out of anything

• When ever you lose something – You should be crying out saying: ”Restore”

• You are only responsible for your own attitude

• Don’t allow your neighbor and all the doubt- helpers to effect your attitude

• Whatever you are going through – Just know that it is going to be well

• Do not become distracted or give up on your dreams and visions

• The angels of the Lord are in charge

• When facing the worse times of your life – There is only one thing God need you to do

• Keep a good attitude while going through it

• Six root causes of a bad attitude:1

1. Low self-esteem
2. How you handle stress

“Pursue, Overtake, and Recover All”
“Guarding and Protecting Your Attitude”

I Samuel 30 Proverbs 22:9 Proverbs 23:7

• You need to have the appropriate mindset because you are dealing with spiritual warfare

• The enemy is working hard to defeat your purpose or your destiny that God has for you

• Satan wants to frustrate your purpose - You need to have an attitude of pursuit

• Stay in the battle until you win – The game is not over until you win

• Pursuit means: to chase, to hunt, to track down, go after or to overtake, to pass, go beyond, and to out do

• David was a man after God’s own heart – He was know as a man of war

• Don’t lose your warring spirit

• You can not have a bountiful eye listening to all the negativity that exist

• The enemy is trying to break your focus causing you to stop looking at how big your God is

• What do you see? – How are you looking?

• Can you see some good things happening; can you see a turn-around, some favor, a blessing, a breakthrough? – Can you see God doing more in your life?

• You must live and walk by faith – If it is not working, you are out of position

• Most people who are out of position are there behind a bad attitude

• The most important asset is your attitude – More important than facts

• There are many facts around – But it is a good attitude that will change facts

• Your attitude is more important than what people say or think about you

• When things don’t go the way you want them to go – Make up your mind that you will not let it hold you back

• You know God has better things in store for you - you must live with high expectations

• Your attitude can either be an asset or a liability

• Your attitude determines you altitude

• Your attitude is important in all walks of your life

• Your attitude has nothing to do with your position

• It has everything to do with your disposition

• You must stay in faith – Staying in faith is keeping a good attitude

• Your attitude determines your success or failure

• Your attitude determines how you handle your feelings and emotions – Check your emotions

• Everyday - All day - For the rest of your life - You must work on your attitude

• Attitude determines your defeat or success - Your thoughts determines your attitude – And the man that wins is the man who thinks he can win

• The enemy is always trying to get you to think wrong things

• God can heal a bad attitude

“Grow Stronger Through Change”

James 1:3,-4 6 Romans 2:4 Proverbs 24:10 II Corinthians 4:9 Philippians 4:13

• Change is not change until it’s change - You are growing stronger through change

• Three things that will never leave your life: Change, Transition, and Transformation

• Some people ask for change yet they fight change = Because it take them out of their norm or what they are use to

• You don’t know what you want when you pray – You want what God wants for you

• When you pray, you must know that if you’re being changed and things are being flipped around – You must trust God in the change

• Change brings pressure – Under pressure, your faith life is forced into the open and shows its true color

• Some changes you make yourself – Then there are changes that are forced on you

• What are you going to do? – Are you going to use your faith at this time?

• Don’t view change as a challenge – See it as an opportunity to become stronger

• In order to grow stronger through change do the following:

1. You must give-up fighting change

• Stop being an escape artist trying to avoid the stress that comes along with change

• Only when you ride the horse in the direction it’s going will you get to where you need to be

2. You must wise up - Use wisdom

• When you are suddenly hit with change, your “fight or flight” instincts arises

• You must go to God when this happens and allow Him to take you by the hand and lead you into change

3. You need to toughen up

• Take inventory of yourself – You can not do this by yourself – You need God

• Are you making it harder on yourself than it needs to be?

• Keep your mouth closed and trust God -Are you speaking faith or fear?

• Are you convincing yourself that you cannot handle the change?

• Make up your mind and know that you can handle it with God’s help

• God is concerned about everything in your life

• The Word says: “ask” and it shall be given “seek “ and you will find “knock” and the doors will be open

• God has increase on His mind for you

• Don’t try to get out of anything prematurely – Let it do its work so you become mature, well-balanced and not deficient in any area

• Resistance to change just creates ulcers, sleeplessness, and stress

• Change is here – Just get through it

• Some attitudes you must adjust:

• Thinking like a victim
