You’ve heard me say it a lot of times that when Christ died, it wasn’t just sin that He killed off. He killed off all negativity. He killed off every negative thought, every negative emotion, every negative word, every negative act. He killed off all negativity on the planet. So you’re not allowed to be negative! And I say that very sweetly. Every negative, though, has a job to do in your life. The role of a negative is to reveal its opposite. The role of a negative is to reveal the nature of God. The role of a negative situation is to reveal a promise. God will simply not allow a negative to be anywhere near you unless its opposite is also present. That is the law of the spirit of life that’s in Christ Jesus.
