“God of Wonders” by Third Day

“God of Wonders beyond our galaxy,
You are holy, yes You are holy,
The universe declares Your majesty,
You are holy, holy,
Lord of heaven and earth.

Early in the morning,
I will celebrate the light,
When I stumble in the darkness,
I will call Your name by night.

God of Wonders beyond our galaxy,
You are holy, yes You are holy,
The universe declares Your majesty,
You are holy, holy,
Lord of heaven and earth… Hallelujah!”

“For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: therefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.”
— Exodus 20:11

“Hearken to this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wonderous works of God. Do you kow when God disposed them and caused the light of His cloud to shine? Do you know the balancings of the clouds, the wonderous works of Him which is perfect in knowledge?”
— Job 37:14-16

Confess Success – God Declares You Prosperous and Successful! Do You?

Confess Success – God Declares You Prosperous and Successful! Do You?

Why Not Agree with God and Confess His Good Success on Your Life?

Prosperous success requires – 

having a mindset that strives for success.

God wants you to be successful in all that you do.

God declares you prosperous and successful…

so begin to agree with God’s Word.

Be a person of the Word; speak the Word.

Think and Imagine Success

If we want to stay in a place of growing prosperity and constant success we must diligently seek God and His presence at all times. (Ecclesiastes 8:12) The thoughts and images that we allow God’s Word to create inside of us are powerful forces that cause us to succeed in every part of life – spiritually, physically, and financially.

“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein; for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” — Joshua 1:8

Meditating and thinking on God’s positive, life-filled words have the power to change your life.

Speak Success

Having prosperous success means regularly speaking and confessing God’s Word. His word will manifest results, but we have to speak it. We can’t expect a life of growing prosperity while we constantly speak the opposite of God’s Word and confess things such as; ‘Nothing I ever do works out.’

“Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.” — Job 22:28

Keep in mind: As you regularly speak God’s words of truth, your negative thoughts of doubt will gradually fade.

Confess and Declare Success

Take time daily to confess and declare over your life the same things that God declares over you. The following is a sample confession to get you started:

‘I declare the good success of God on my life. I confess that I have a spirit of faithfulness, wisdom, diligence and giving. I give bountifully and I reap bountifully. I am blessed coming in and blessed going out. God has given me power to be successful. The light and favor of God are shining on me and I am victory minded in everything I do. I am a winner, an overcomer, and I triumph and live successful to the glory of God. Everything I put my hand to prospers. Success is overtaking me in Jesus’ name.’

Believe me. Once you start to keep God first place in your life, you can expect His blessings. God declares you successful, so begin to agree with the Word of God, observe to do it and make your way prosperous.

May you declare the success of God on your life and live in growing prosperity!

Be blessed to be a blessing –

God bless you always –

Growing Prosperity – People Want to Know Your Secret When You Prosper in Tough Times!

Growing Prosperity – People Want to Know Your Secret When You Prosper in Tough Times!

How Do Some Continue to Prosper In Tough Economic Times?

Prospering in bad economic times…

makes people take notice.

They will want to know your secret.

And sharing your secret for –

abundant success…

is a great way to be a blessing to others.

Growing Prosperity in Bad Economic Times

Here we are. Economic conditions are bad. Even so, you continue to drive new vehicles, live in better homes, and wear quality clothes. Everybody at work is saying, “What are we gonna do? Gas prices are going up, food prices are increasing, blah, blah, blah.” They moan and complain and bellyache.

You refuse to be a part of that conversation. These conditions do not faze you one bit. People start to take serious notice of that. They begin to approach you and ask, “What is your secret?”

The Secret for Abundant Success in Tough Times

So what is your secret? You tell them your secret is the fact that you got turned on to the truth of the God’s Word; that you got a hold of some powerful principles in His Word and put them to work by faith. The result is manifested blessings in your life.

If we are going to survive in this world and prosper, we need the blessing of the Lord. Unless of course, we plan to try and make it the world’s way; which generally means having to lie, cheat, steal, etcetera. When we use God’s system of prosperity we do not have to do those things.

What Do You Seek First?

Those who walk closely with God are not bothered much by the things going on in the world around them. Others may become more unstable and fearful as things get worse and worse, but those who live according to God’s ways maintain peace and stability.

“Seek first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” 
— Matthew 6:33

God wants us to seek Him first and not be like so many in the world who seek after money and riches. We should seek the way to please God, and seek to be right with Him. When we seek the kingdom of God first, all the other things will be added unto us.

You know what happens when all the other things begin to be added unto us? People begin to take notice. Others will begin to see the blessing of God upon us; and not just the financial abundance of God, but the priceless peace of God.

Get the secret or share the secret. Now get out there and discover God’s system of prosperity. Put it into practice and begin walking in the full blessing of the Lord. If you are already living by His system, and others are standing up and taking notice, then be ready to share your secret for abundant success.

May you seek first the kingdom of God and be blessed with a life of growing prosperity!

Be blessed to be a blessing –

The Greatness of Our God – Hillsong Live Christian Music Video

“The Greatness of Our God” Live by Hillsong

“Give me eyes to see more of who You are,
Make what I behold still my anxious heart,
Take what I have known and break it all apart,
For You my God, are Greater Still!

…I spent my life to know, and I’m far from close –
to knowing all You are, the Greatness of Our God!

Give me grace to see beyond this moment here,
to believe that there is nothing left to fear,
and that You alone are high above it all,
for You my God are Greater still!

…there is nothing that could ever separate us…
no words can say, no song convey –
the Greatness of Our God!”

“I will extol You, my God, O King; and I will bless Your name for ever and ever.
Every day will I bless You; and I will praise Your name for ever and ever.
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable.
One generation shall praise your works to another, and shall declare
Your mighty acts.
I will speak of the glorious honor of Your majesty, and of Your wonderous works… And I will declare Your greatness.
They shall abundantly utter the memory of Your great goodness,
and shall sing of Your righteousness.
The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy…
The Lord is righteous in all His ways, and holy in all His works.
The Lord is near unto all them that call upon Him, to all that call upon Him in truth…
My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord: and let all flesh bless His holy name for ever and ever.”
— Psalm 145: 1-8,17-18,21

Enjoy this beautiful song!

God bless you,

Empowerment – Do Not Be a Wimp in the Valley of Decision Making!

Empowerment – Do Not Be a Wimp in the Valley of Decision Making!

Discover How the Power of Decisiveness and Quality Choices Can Lead to Success!

Empowerment comes from acknowledging and
developing the weak areas in our lives.

We all have our strengths and weaknesses.

At some point in life…

a lack of success and/or balance
will shed light on those areas that need to be better
developed and strengthened.

Are You a Decision Making Wimp?

A primary trait that we all should develop as soon as possible is the ability to make quality decisions. Every person is born with a God-given capacity and right to choose. The ability to choose is our free moral agency, and it is also one of the main ways in which we are made in the image of God.

We are born into a world where everything operates by decisions.

“Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.” 
— Joel 3:14

God respects our right to choose and make decisions, even if it results in a bad outcome. Truly we live in the valley of decision and we see man’s right to choose as a theme repeated throughout the Bible. Different aspects of the power of choice are emphasized from Genesis to Revelation.

“I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing, therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live.” 
— Deuteronomy 30:19

Let the Almighty God ‘Have Your Back’

Choosing to live by faith in God is the most important quality decision you can make in life. When you make a determined decision to trust God and His Word over any circumstance, you open the door to receive His promises.

The Almighty God is ready and willing to back you up with all of heaven’s power. He will move mighty on behalf of someone who has purposed to do things by the Book. You make the decision and God will back you up!

It is no secret; those who are half-hearted and wishy-washy about their decision making, never reach the level of success they desire. Why? Because the people that are double minded, and waver in their choices, are unstable and lack the commitment and resolve needed to win.

“Ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavers is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” 
— James 1:6-8

Many people are wise enough to make a quality decision to do things God’s way early on in life. However, for others it may take finally getting fed up with where they are at…

If that is you, are you going to continue to live with problems that are trying to defeat you, or are you going to make a determined, unwavering decision to overcome by doing things God’s way?

Start to practice making conscious choices to do things God’s way in the little things, and over time it will become a habit and easier to choose His way in the big things.

Guess what? All of heaven is waiting for your quality decision, made of your own free will, to operate according to God’s Word. It is an essential step in the divine order of faith and opens the door to the blessings and power of God. Begin now to empower yourself by making regular, intentional, committed decisions.

May you empower yourself with decisiveness and live in growing prosperity!

Be blessed to be a blessing –


P.S. Christianity is really nothing more than a series of decisions…

Think about it. Jesus died on the cross so that you might have forgiveness of sins and inherit eternal life. But that fact alone does you no good unless you make a decision to receive what He provided for you. God respects your right to choose (even if that means letting you spend eternity in hell).

Affirmation Power – How to Overcome Fear and Strengthen Your Courage with Affirmations

Affirmation Power – How to Overcome Fear and Strengthen Your Courage with Affirmations

Why Not Put the Power of Affirmations to Work for Your Benefit?

Affirmations are a powerful force in helping direct our lives.

If you are lacking in any quality…

you can strengthen it with regular affirmations.

They will make your brain clearer…

and your thoughts more effective.

“An affirmation is a statement of Truth consciously used so as to become the directing power of Life’s expression.” 
— Orison Swett Marden

Fearful Thoughts Versus Courageous Thinking

Would you like to overcome fear in your life? If you are a coward anywhere in your nature, which most people are, you can put the power of affirmations to work for your benefit.

Strengthen your courage by regularly affirming that you are absolutely fearless, that you are courageous, and that nothing can harm you. Consider that fear is simply the sense of danger. But when you have perfect confidence in the great Creator and His purpose for your life, when you trust in Him completely, there will be no cause for fear.

God has a plan for your life and He says it is not to harm you, but to prosper you and give you a hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11) Once you convince yourself that there is a good plan for your life, and that the opposing thoughts must be a delusion, you will gradually lose the sense of fear and gain the courage you desire.

“Nerve us with incessant affirmation. Don’t bark against the bad, but chant the beauties of the good.” 
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Affirmations Create Power

Determine today not to harbor anything in your mind which you do not wish to become real in your life. Every time you feel a sense of fear coming over you, replace it by saying something such as the following affirmation:

‘I am absolutely fearless; I am strong and courageous because the Lord is my God and my helper; I am more than a conqueror and always triumph in Christ.’

Do not entertain a weak or fearful thought. Instead replace them with confident, hopeful, optimistic thoughts. If you form the habit of affirming to yourself bold and courageous thoughts, as soon as a sense of fear arises, you will be surprised to see how quickly you can change the whole course of your thoughts. And when this is changed, the feeling will change also.

You will begin to increase your courage and confidence, and this is half the battle. You will soon find that your environment will begin to change. Hope will increase and you will have a healthier outlook on life. Your thoughts, instead of depressing your mind, will be a perpetual encouragement of courage and confidence that drives out fear.

Now what? Discover the wonderful advantage available to you by starting out every morning with the mindset of affirming the confident and courageous person God created you to be. Let affirmations create a powerful force that make it difficult for any discouraging and fearful thoughts to take over. Overcome fear and strengthen your courage with powerful affirmations.

May your mind be filled with courageous, confident affirmations and your life full of growing prosperity!

God bless you –

Dave Barnes – God Gave Me You Music Video

“God Gave Me You” by Dave Barnes

“…you stay here right beside me and watch as the storm blows through.
And I need you. God gave me you for the ups and downs.
God gave me you for the days of doubt. For when I think I’ve lost my way,
There are no words here left to say, it’s true – God Gave Me You!

There’s more here than what we’re seeing – a Divine Conspiracy!
That you an angel lovely, would somehow fall for me.
You’ll always be loved sweetheart and I’ll be the flattered fool…
And I need you. God Gave Me You…”

“Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away. If one were to give all the wealth of his house for love, it would be utterly scorned.”
— Song of Solomon 8:7

This one goes out to all you love birds, newly weds, and long-time married folks…


God bless you –

Growing Prosperity – Why Limit Prosperity to Only One Area of Your Life?

Growing Prosperity – Why Limit Prosperity to Only One Area of Your Life?

Would You Like to Successfully Prosper in More Areas of Your Life?

Growing prosperity is possible in all areas of your life.

Do you limit it to only one?

Many people find they limit prosperity to only one or two areas because they are diligent in only those areas.

For example, some are successful in the area of healing and walking in divine health, but fail when it comes to financial prosperity.

Why does this happen? The answer given to this question is often that it must not be God’s will that a person be prosperous or healed.

Knowledge of God’s Willingness to Prosper

It is key that we have the knowledge of God’s willingness to prosper us.

“Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord.” — 2 Peter 1:2

We are often like the leper in the first chapter of Mark that knows God is able, but questions whether or not He is willing. But Jesus answered the man’s question saying, “I will” and then healing power flowed into the leper’s life.

Does God want us poor? We need to answer the poverty question if we want to see prosperity come.

We need to know God will and not doubt about His willingness. God’s willingness and prosperity is multiplied to us through the knowledge of God. As we gain the knowledge of God, we gain faith in that knowledge, and in turn see grace multiplied to us.

Get a Healthy Attitude Toward Prosperity In Every Area

If we spend our time with a focus on healing, we will enjoy prosperous health. But then we might struggle to prosper financially. It is important to find a balance.

Our thinking and believing needs to line up with the Word of God, rather than letting preconceived ideas rule that may be contrary to God’s will. If a person believes that it is a sin to have money or live in a nice house, they will have contrary thoughts and attitudes that prevent growing prosperity.

If our mind is not prosperous in a certain area, then usually we will not prosper in that area. If it is the area of finances, then we may not give much because we don’t believe God wants us to have anything. Then because we never believe for a return, even if it comes, we miss it. To reap a financial harvest, it takes a prosperous attitude.

We can prosper in even the little things in life. When we meditate on the Word of God daily, renew our minds, and purpose to live in line with His will, God says, “Whatever you do shall prosper.” (Psalm 1:3)

Make no mistake about it: God is willing to use His power and ability to prosper us. His peace is multiplied to us through the knowledge of God. Peace is prosperity because it joins us together as one with Jesus, and that is prosperity any way you look at it.

May you gain the knowledge of God’s willingness to fill your life with growing prosperity!

Be blessed to be a blessing –
