Three Mindsets That Short-Circuit Our Faith

by Joyce Meyer

God doesn’t want us living fearfully. He wants us to fully plug in to His amazing power that comes through His grace [link to Accessing God’s Power Through Faith and Grace]. Unfortunately I know from experience we sometimes short-circuit God’s power through negative mind-sets that get in His way.



There is no power shortage in heaven. God is not ever in a recession. His grace is sufficient to meet every need if we’ll just allow ourselves to be open and available to His will.

So to help you do that, I want to share three things that commonly short-circuit our faith, cutting off our access to God’s power: complaining, self-pity and pride.

  • Complaining is a negative attitude that keeps us from being thankful for all God has done, is doing and will do. It is a sin we need to repent of, and then be determined to thank God in all things, at all times. His grace and blessings always outweigh the things we think are wrong in our life.
  • Self-pity is simply a “poor me” attitude. It is a form of idolatry because it causes you to focus on yourself and think, “What about me?” But we can’t be pitiful and powerful at the same time, so let’s decide to give up all self-pity.
  • Pride takes credit for what God has done and steals His glory. It makes us independent of God, and we can’t bear good fruit apart from Christ.
  • Before I learned how to live my life by God’s grace, I was a mess. I was a nagging wife, a manipulator and controlling. And I wasn’t satisfied living like that. Then God helped me by opening my eyes to see that I couldn’t really change until I started taking His Word seriously and trusted Him to change me. When I made a firm decision to pray and study the Word in areas I was weak until the truth made me strong, then God’s grace gave me the power I needed to overcome the things that were wrong. And I keep going forward in my journey with God the same way today.

    God has all the power you need to do anything you need to do. He loves you and wants to give you His power to live your everyday life with joy. Lean on Him with absolute trust in His wisdom and goodness, and live with God-given confidence.
