It is a common reaction for people, when faced with a negative situation, to feel justified in complaining and dwelling on the negative. Others have discovered the power of positive thinking and find it beneficial. The power of positive thinking is multiplied when your thoughts are turned into praise for My goodness, protection, supply, and the many blessings in your life.

Your bodies are built to respond vibrantly to positive thinking, and praise is the ultimate form of positive thinking. When you praise Me, even in the midst of seemingly dark circumstances, you’re initiating a reaction that will actually make you feel better physically and will give you extra strength to persevere. But that’s just the beginning, because at the same time, you’re pleasing Me by telling Me that you appreciate My blessings in spite of the negative; that you have faith that I’ll work things out and continue to take care of you.
