The Optimistic Perception

As we walk in this world where sin and wickedness lay in front of us for over six thousand years, the human mind has been driven into this vacuum. It influences our ideas and thoughts that everything that was, is, and will be made by feeble men are subject to sin and failure.

Love seems lost its place, people are so acquainted with the growing love of sin. They themselves sometimes evil surmise that others has this characters of degrading value, where in reality it’s they who posses such traits. This mindset acts as a plague spreading in the hearts of men. This can create division inside the Church, in the community, or even inside the family. Such perception must be checked among the trusted stewards of Christ, an illness that must be treated without delay.

Many fix their eyes upon the terrible wickedness existing around them, the apostasy and weakness on every side, and they talk of these things until their hearts are filled with sadness and doubt. They keep uppermost before the mind the masterly working of the archdeceiver and dwell upon the discouraging features of their experience, while they seem to lose sight of the heavenly Father’s power and His matchless love. All this is as Satan would have it. It is a mistake to think of the enemy of righteousness as clothed with so great power, when we dwell so little upon the love of God and His might. We must talk of the mightiness of Christ. We are utterly powerless to rescue ourselves from the grasp of Satan; but God has appointed a way of escape. The Son of the Highest has strength to fight the battle for us, and “through Him that loved us” we may come off “more than conquerors.” – Counsels for the church, Page 79, Paragraph 3

Satan has ability to suggest doubts and to devise objections to the pointed testimony that God sends, and many think it a virtue, a mark of intelligence in them, to be unbelieving and to question and quibble. Those who desire to doubt will have plenty of room. God does not propose to remove all occasion for unbelief. He gives evidence, which must be carefully investigated with a humble mind and a teachable spirit, and all should decide from the weight of evidence. God gives sufficient evidence for the candid mind to believe; but he who turns from the weight of evidence because there are a few things which he cannot make plain to his finite understanding will be left in the cold, chilling atmosphere of unbelief and questioning doubts, and will make shipwreck of faith.  – Counsels for the church, Page 93, Paragraph 4

Stay Optimistic, a single doubt can ruin a handful of confidence. Placing doubts in the hearts of the perfect angels is where Satan started his enmity against Christ.

Is it slowly growing inside us? May it never take a step inside our hearts.

Pray for it. Whatever your struggle may be in the context of the word “doubt”, the greatness of Satan will be dwarfed if you put all your trust to God. Claim the Promise: “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. ” – Philippians 4:19
