ATTITUDE is the way one thinks or feels that affects his decisions and behavior. A way of thinking and behaving that people regard as unfriendly, rude, disrespectful, etc.
ATTITUDE: On the other hand could be the way we act when we are dealing with someone. Especially when this shows how we feel about them – i.e. Good or bad…
Are you facing some challenges or experiencing some unexpected setback? Are you in a state of confusion on what to do about your attitude? Do you really desire to have a good attitude?
Now let me tell you that during the times when we face challenges, it’s our attitude that matters most. our attitude limits what God can do, And also determine our victory.
Especially, when we remain steadfast in God. Knowing that He is bigger than our problems. When we fight the good fight of faith, that’s what allows God to show up and turn negative situations around.
As 1 John 5:4 says that every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith.
THE BASIS AND ATTITUDES OF OVERCOMERS
In Revelation 3:21, the Lord Jesus said, He who overcomes, to him I will give the power to sit with me on my throne. The reason the man-child can be upon the throne is that he has overcome the world.
Revelation 12:11 says, “And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony. And they loved not their soul-life even unto death.”
They overcome Satan by rendering him unable to do any of his work upon them.
They overcame him  because of the blood of the Lamb.  because of the word of their Testimony and  because they had an attitude of not loving their soul-life even unto death.
First, “they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb.” Victory in spiritual warfare is based upon the blood of the Lamb.
The blood is not only for forgiveness and salvation, but it is also the basis by which we overcome Satan.
They suppose that some may grow to the extent that they go beyond the need for the blood. We must emphatically say that there is no such thing!
No person can grow to the extent that he surpasses the need for the blood. The major activity of Satan against Christians is to accuse them.
Is Satan a murderer? Yes. Is he a liar and a tempter? Yes. Is he one who attacks us? Yes. But this is not all. His chief work is to accuse.
According to the book of Revelation 12:10 says, “The accuser of our brethren has been cast down, who accuses them before our God day and night.”
As we all can see from where we read that Satan accuses the brothers day and night. Not only is he the accuser before God, but also the accuser of our conscience.
And if left unchecked, his accusations can cause us to become weak and completely powerless.
He likes to accuse people to such an extent that they consider themselves useless. And thus lose all their ground for fighting with him.
Once a child of God accepts Satan’s accusations. He will begin to feel guilty and ashamed in all that he does in life. And will never see himself doing anything that is wright.
When he kneels down to pray, he will feel that he is wrong and does not even believe that God will answer his prayer.
If he wants to speak a word in the meeting, he will feel that it is of no use, because he is not right.
When he wants to give an offering to the Lord. He wonders why he should offer anything because God would surely not accept an offering from a person like him.
The main concern of Christians like this is not how glorious and victorious the Lord Jesus is, but how evil and worthless they are. From morning to evening they are consumed with the thought of their own worthlessness.
Whether they are working, resting, walking, reading the Scriptures, or praying. A single moment does not pass without their consideration of how worthless they are.
This is the accusation of Satan. If we accept these accusations, we can never overcome, because when sin, that will make it difficult for us to confess and deal it immediately.
We must learn not to look upon ourselves, but looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. Hebrews 12:1-2.
THE IMPORTANCE OF GODLY ATTITUDE:
- Be careful of the way you treat people around you. Because your attitude towards others determines their approach towards you and also your end.
- Learn to put a smile on your face. Because when you smile at people they will probably smile back at you.
- Let me say this if you want to enjoy people as you go through your day, treat them well.
- You can never change other people’s lives until you change your attitude towards them.
Remember, your attitude gives you the winning edge. And your attitude, not your achievement, brings happiness to you.
The book of 1 Corinthians 10:31 says whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all to the glory of God.
Guard your Thought, Less they become Word

Mind your Actions, Less they become Habit
Watch your Habits, Less they become Character
Observe your characters, Less they become ATTITUDE
Watch your ATTITUDES, Less they become YOUR DESTINY
