Forward - Session 5 - Believe: Get Your Mind Right
When it comes to optimism, it is important for us to guard against any self-help ideology that pushes God to the sidelines and magnifies our own human ability to generate it. Real hope comes from Christ who strengthens us. It does not come from believing in the power of positive thinking or from believing in ourselves. True optimism comes from biblical convictions about the nature of God.
