Self help books about positive thinking are popular nowadays. Have you ever wondered when it started?
People gets amused when learning that positive thinking has a significant effect in life. Some says that it takes a great self discipline to comply with the cosmic power of the universe. I have nothing against the idea of getting positive results through good disposition in life. However, I want to remind everyone that before these self-help books even existed, there is the bible that teaches us about faith in God.
God teaches us to trust Him and have faith in Him that all these great things shall be given to us.
So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them. - Mark 11:22-24 NKJV
