hi this is nikki torreon thank you so much for downloading is high class i believe god has amazing things in your future hope you enjoy this message and we are glad you're here today there was study done at stanford university that i said that attitude is a better predictor of success then i q they related attitude and success added to really starts with the way we think about something are someone and that's how we develop these attitudes you see it christine because when you think about something or someone wrong way you develop a bad attitude
when you think about something you are someone the right way you develop a good attitude so they were saying either you can a bad attitude and you lack success no matter how bright you are are you can have a good attitude even if you're not the brightest person that's pretty good to me i'm all and see the truth the matter is in the book of numbers there was two men who displayed this exact study stand for just should have study joshua caleb because these two guys were amazing in their attitude they have you know the story moses took twel leaders from the tribes israel and he told them to go into this land that god had already promised to give them and so the land out here
go in check out the land bring back some produce bring back some of the vegetation that's in the land so weakened kind of have a glimpse of what what's in that land you don't it talks about it a breakthrough in season and how they had to carry a cluster of grapes like long barn to two men to get the grapes back to the camp in randalls done have grapes like that they or big rapes the land was flourishing but also in that land they saw giants all twelve but those spies came back and they saw the same thing and they said yes the land is good nor is it an interesting about attitude can all see the same thing but we're going to emulate our attitude by the way we think you see how you think is directly related to your report
what's gonna come out of your mouth the bible says you're not out of the heart the mouse freaks that's why you can't hide and a bad attitude for long you can draw up it should be and you can draw debate people out you can drop it i'd like your enjoy in somebody's conversation when you're thinking bad thoughts about in the home tom but let me tell you something eventually i want to show up may not show up in that person's conversation but i guarantee you it's gonna show somewhere else in your lie because bad attitudes spread they have legs they ransford into other areas of our lives so back to my story they all saw that the land was filled with beauty four vegetation great soil but it also had giants it also had some strong people in the land so ten of those leaders came back and they reported that the line that's good we're going
on that but the way we see it we see it with giants waste with wall cities we see those people way better than us in fact we are small in comparison to them they actually described themselves as grasshoppers about that time joshua they were like this sure describes them is trying to push the bad report they were of a different spirit the bible describes them of a different attitude they were doing in the rest of you see i didn't see the impossible qualities they saw them beautiful land but when they saw the giants you know what they saw they saw an opportunity for god the work in their life faced an opportunity for them to trust god for what he had spoken in their lie
they saw an opportunity to possess a promise and may god by their battle for them you see they tried to hush the bad report have you ever in your mind you know you had this idea you're excited about what god was to do in your life maybe it's a promotion maybe you know you're you're going to believe this is the relationship for you it's gonna work out there's something did you really believe in poor going to happen in your life and it looks good and all of a sudden those net their voices start telling you why it's not and how its ever gonna happen can i tell you you gotta be like joshua came up and you gotta hush those voices shut it down you say no i'm not going to listen to you i truly believe moses was under the impression that we he came back there we're going to bring a good report that we're gonna turn the camp memorandum
those bribes they're gonna go you go get those bright hungary we had had any great slightly but he didn't because of the bad report the leaders brought they couldn't ash a bad report you want that tells me today that tells me that we how to drive out negative voices we can't be negative talkers we can't transfer negative reports to our family we and transmit feared or children weekend discipline them from a place of fear was and we want to build flying want to be like joshua caleb when you're blaming someone notice this this is what the bible tells us they did they they literally
we're so discourage with this bad report that they began to cry out and blame moses an airing for all the trouble so they couldn't even see the miracles and the good things for the fact they were so focused on other trouble all the bad report so they begin to blame and point the finger you know that was a bad day it was about day i'm sure that there were disputes among those people that did even have to be there because they were they were so negative there were such a bad mood couldn't say anything have you been around bad people in bad moves that whole camp within a bad
and you know what happened they stayed there for forty years total they complained and they remained for forty years and that's what a negative attitude does that's what complaining and griping and grumbling does so i will if you find yourself in a place where you're trying to lay blaine i would encourage you to check your attitude someone else's fault you need to check your attitude because this is my point today joshua and came about a different spirit they had an excellent fear and an excellent attitude they worthless place the other ten men were but they weren't gonna drop to the depths of the negative situation they weren't going to allow their fight can we destroy as a result of that they actually arrived in wilderness when
every one else died in the wilderness because they were different in god is called you and i too be different of an excellent spirit you maybe in a place right now that's hard and difficult you not see how you're gonna get out but you think about joshua kalen and how they continue to promote the lord continue to work for god they did but they drop in the wilderness and you know because they thrive in the wilderness they were able to take the net generation of israel light into the process miss landed possessed what god said they were gonna put that you know what alpine really interesting about this good attitude that they had the buyer said that when they went into the promised land joshua came and took the next year duration they said the lord we feel better than we ever have we been shot
than we ever have and we are ready to take this land you see they were ready to take the land back then though that there are poor we can certainly take this land and that's how we have to be we have to be of a report we can certainly do this we can certainly bite through this because god is gonna shelly fight our battles for us if we ll just sky in an attitude of fake and trust that can do it when joshua took the next generation of israel life into the promised land this was his motto this was his vision statement and i think it's a great vision statement for each and every one of us he told those people he said look today shoes who you're gonna sir shoes who you're gonna sir are you that i saw a negative idolatry you gonna sore bad attitudes what are you
yes sir but i'll tell you what i'm going to serve and what i've always sir and i for me and my house we goin to serve the war we are to take the high road where choosing java looking a pin hush those negative voices whether they are in our own mind what the command of our mouths are there from someone else we have the choice and that's the bottom line that was his mission statement to them you choose which you think about you choose and you decide who you're gonna sir this we are joshua came up in this generation we're not going to pass on beer we're not called pass on
and we're not going to spread and negative report but we're going to go in and we're gonna take the lion godfather they may i thank you for listening to the jews dean podcast hopeless continue to share the message of hope with those all over the world joe boosting dot com slash give hope to give again today face really to the podcast be sure to subscribes all of the latest messages know that we pray for you god bless you
