“Check your attitude” by “The Daily Encouraging Word”

From The Encouraging Word Ministries

From The Daily Encouraging Word

“You must have the same attitude that…Jesus had.” Php 2:5 NLT A flying instructor will tell you that periodically your plane needs to be “trimmed” or “balanced in flight.” After flying through storms, it gets knocked out of alignment and needs to be adjusted. And the same thing happens on your spiritual journey. The storms of life can “knock you out of alignment.” Unexpected “weather conditions” like sickness, depression, unemployment, divorce, disappointment, and death can force you to change direction and strategy. That’s why your attitude needs to be regularly checked and adjusted. So what are you dealing with that calls for an attitude check? Paul writes, “You must have the same attitude…Jesus had.” Is such a lifestyle possible? Yes, but you must make it a priority and pursue it each day. Joshua wanted to turn an army of complainers into an army that could conquer the Promised Land. So God gave him this formula for success: “Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night…be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do” (Jos 1:8 NLT). Try the “three-by-five technique.” Each week identify a Scripture that relates to an area in which you want to grow, write it down on a three-by-five card, and memorize it. In one year you’ll have fifty-two Scriptures you can recall and stand on. Think how that will impact your life! Not only will wrong attitudes become right attitudes, but your life will begin to move in the right direction.

“How Satan tempts us” by “The Daily Encouraging Word”

From The Encouraging Word Ministries

From The Daily Encouraging Word

“He will show you how to escape from your temptations.” 1Co 10:13 CEV Satan tried to get Jesus to succumb to three different kinds of temptation, and he’ll try the same with you: (1) Satisfaction without God. Knowing Christ was hungry, Satan told Him to turn stones into bread. But Jesus said no because He knew God’s plan was to feed and strengthen Him supernaturally; He refused to settle for less—and you must too. (2) Success without God. Satan then took Jesus to the top of the temple and told Him to jump off, saying God would send angels to protect Him. But God’s plan for Jesus was the cross, the resurrection, and the multitudes who would come to believe in Him. Satan tried to get Jesus to settle for less, and he’ll try the same with you. Don’t take the bait! (3) Significance without God. Satan offered Jesus the kingdoms of this world if only He’d bow down and worship him. What an offer! Significance without God! But the fact is, the kingdoms of this world weren’t Satan’s to offer! So he lied to Jesus—and he will lie to you too. The way to lasting satisfac tion is the way of the cross, which means sacrificing yourself. Jesus rebuked Satan with a reminder from Scripture that God alone is worthy to be glorified. Understand this: Satan will take every legitimate desire you have and try to get you to fulfill it in an illegitimate way. But you can overcome him. How? By staying close to God and living in His Word, “He will show you how to escape from your temptations.”

How to use the line technique for multiplication?

Wow! A fascinating way of doing multiplication by hand!

A Better Man

Once you graduate from school, there just isn’t much call for doing multiplication by hand anymore. We’re all carrying supercomputers around in our pockets to do our math for us — no need to pull out some scratch paper or your handy-dandy multiplication tables. But we just found out about a method of multiplication that’s not just fun to do by hand; it’s also kind of mind-blowing.

You remember how to do multiplication by hand, right? First, you place the two numbers on top of each other. Then you multiply the top digits by the digit below them in the ones place, then you multiply the top digits by the digit below them in the tens place (make sure you add a 0 to the end), and then multiply the top digits by the digit below in the 100s place, and so on. Finally, add all of those numbers up…

“Change your attitude toward it” by “The Daily Encouraging Word”

From The Encouraging Word Ministries

From The Daily Encouraging Word

“Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!” Php 4:4 NKJV Cheryl continually complained that she didn’t make enough money, couldn’t afford the things she wanted, and therefore wasn’t going to amount to anything. Her counselor said, “You’re wasting your energy complaining, instead of using it to get ahead.” Cheryl countered, “You don’t understand. The job is the problem, not me.” The counselor said, “Your low-paying job may be a problem and your boss may demand too much, but when you’re continually upset you’re causing yourself more harm than either your boss or your job.” Cheryl asked, “What can I do?” The counselor said, “You can’t control your boss or the job, but you can control how you feel about them. Change your attitude.” Cheryl took her advice. When she stopped whining about her life, people noticed. She got a promotion, and with her new job status she was more marketable. Within several months she was transferred to a position with higher pay and a more supportive boss. Good things happen for people with a good attitude. And your attitude is something you can choose regardless of circumstances. Paul wrote, “Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!” Where was Paul? In prison! Who was Paul writing to? People outside the prison! Why did he repeat himself and say, “Again I will say, rejoice?” Because we forget and lapse back into negativity so quickly. True joy is an inside job that’s not subject to people or outside situations. Jesus said, “These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full” (Jn 15:11).
