Abundant Power is Available when You Meditate on the Living Word of God!
to commune with,
to have relationship with, and
to be united in love with God.
Have you ever wondered how some believers manage to dwell in the presence of, in that secret place of, the most High God?
Meditation on God’s Word turns our minds away from the everyday affairs of life and toward Him. Blessed are those who discover and tap into the abundant divine power available in the living Word of God!
Our Place By The Father
There is a place by the Father God for every believer. We need to find our place and live in it. The Word of God tells us who we are, where our place is, and how to live in it. In the presence of God we can be shaped and transformed into His image.
“He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”
— Psalm 91:1
Through meditation in God’s Word we are able to dwell in the secret place of the most High God.
Christian meditation is at the heart of the Gospel and should also be for every believer. We were created for relationship and love, not only with each other but supremely with God. As believers we are one with the Lord, just as Jesus said “I and the Father are one.” (John 17:21-23)
“That they all may be one; as you, Father, are in Me, and I in You,
that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe
that You have sent Me. And the glory which You gave Me
I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
I in them, and You in Me, that they may be made perfect in one;
and that the world may know that You have sent Me,
and have loved them, as You have loved Me.”
— John 17: 21-23
A Spiritual Connection to God
Christian meditation is way of experiencing God beyond what the mind can grasp. Meditation allows the nourishing richness and revelation of God’s love to flow into the deep places of our heart.
“Be still, and know that I am God.”
— Psalm 46:10
Meditation provides a way to connect into the heart of God’s love and acceptance. It is our spiritual connection to the One who is our heart’s true home. When we meditate on the Word of God, we are able to step into the blessings He has provided for us and experience spiritual refreshment and intimacy with Him.
In meditation, our relationship with God deepens. And as we rest in our relationship, He works His love in our heart, drawing us deeper and closer to Him. As His light shines on us, we become more and more the person we were created to be.
It is no secret: Christian meditation on the Word of God strengthens our relationship with Him and has the power to transform our lives. Begin meditating on God’s Word today, and start strengthening your relationship with Him.
Are you ready to move yourself into the secret place of the most High God through Christian Meditation?
God bless you always,
Manifesting Abundance – The Power of Changing Your Thinking to Manifest Money!
Your Thoughts and Beliefs Hold Great Power to Manifest Money!
requires managing your thinking.
Make no mistake about it;
there is great power in thoughts and beliefs.
So what thoughts and beliefs do you currently hold about money?
Common Negative Thoughts About Money
- It is not good to have a lot of money.
- Rich people really aren’t happy.
- Money isn’t everything and I don’t care about money.
- Money isn’t important.
People who say these things might not care about money, but you can be sure that the landlord does, and the banker, the car dealer, the utility company, etc. A common misconception regarding money relates to its importance. Truth is, who can deny how important money is to any person living in a civilized society and using it as their currency.
Money has a greater influence in our lives than almost any other commodity. It is one of the most talked about subjects in the Bible. Consider how a sudden loss or gain of money affects a person’s attitude to a great extent.
I think you would agree that we all should have a practical understanding of exactly what money is and the laws governing its manifestation. This one individual area of study will not only affect your own life, but the lives of those around you.
Out with the Negative and In with the Positive Money Thoughts
Thinking is the highest function we are capable of. Yet many people fool themselves into believing they are thinking, when often they are just replaying old movies in their mind. It is important to take notice of this and begin choosing your thoughts and developing a prosperity conscious mindset.
Mental awareness of prosperity always precedes manifested wealth. Thoughts will create ideas, which will help you create a plan of action to then go do those things, and put yourself in the position to manifest more money.
“Be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” — Romans 12:2
Think of children born into prosperous families; they have been conditioned from birth to be prosperity conscious and think prosperous thoughts. These children only see themselves surrounded by wealth, and they in turn play that out in their adult life with their choices of careers, like minded spouses, and lifestyles. It’s as if they feel it is their birth right and they don’t even entertain thoughts of poverty and lack. Any setbacks are only temporary because they are prosperity conscious.
Unfortunately, the majority of people have not been born into that kind of environment and raised to have a prosperity mindset. The opposite is too often the case and living in a poor environment with poor thinking and poor conversations is the norm.
Anyone can change their way of thinking. It is not always easy, and takes a desire to do so and a lot of effort. But the results from the effort will be well worth it.
Lack and limitation only exists when we give it room in our minds. Opening our minds to prosperity consciousness helps us see money as an obedient servant that we are master over, and that we can tap into unlimited earnings potential.
Remember, that we must have something mentally before we have it physically. So let’s make those private thoughts and conversations in our minds be wealth conscious, and move us to a higher potential.
You can begin to positively affirm:
- I am prosperous and wealthy.
- Money is good and I am blessed to be a blessing.
Just think about it. God created this world full of abundance and has given each of us talents and abilities, far surpassing what we use. With God’s help we have what it takes to be a success. With God there is no lack and He gave us the ability to think. So why not start to penetrate the world of wealth today by using the power of thought to manifest money.
May you use the power of thought to create a life of growing prosperity!

Intimacy with God – Do You Make This Your Key Priority in Life?
Tap into the Great Power Source and Change Your Outlook!
Unfortunately, the natural thing for most of us to do…
is become absorbed in our day-to-day problems and demands.
On any given day, many people face stressful situations,
extreme trials, and even heartbreaks with marriages,
family members, or friends.
All this tends to keep the focus on self.
Learning to Look Beyond
When we learn to look beyond the trials and obstacles and fix our eyes on Jesus, and believe God is Sovereign, we will begin to have a different perspective and response to everything we face. The Bible teaches us that God uses all things, even the painful things, for the good of believers. One of the positive results of trials is the intimacy that can develop when we turn to the Lord for help.
“We know all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.”
— Romans 8:28
Intimacy with God – A Key Priority
God desires an intimate, loving relationship with us, and we should make this relationship our TOP priority. Intimacy with God begins with turning to Him and humbling ourselves before Him. It involves regular time in His Word, time in prayer, and patiently waiting for Him to speak to our hearts.
As we develop a deeper relationship with the Lord, we will understand that every hardship has a purpose. We have lessons to be learned and maturity to be gained. And remember, God has promised to meet the needs of His children, if they come to Him, seek Him diligently, and obey Him.
We can’t live above our circumstances in our own strength, but we certainly can by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Steps for a Closer Walk with the Lord
One – Give God the daily worship He deserves because of who He is and His finished work on the cross. Let Him know you love Him.
Two – Take time to confess all known sin; knowing that if you do, God is faithful and just to forgive and cleanse you from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)
Three – Give thanks regularly to God for all He has done in your life and in your world.
Fourth – Take time to pray daily and ask God to supply your needs.
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”
— Philippians 4:6
What’s stopping you? Why not tap into the great power source in life? For each of us, our priority in life should be intimacy with God.
May you continually walk closer to the Lord and live a life of growing prosperity!
God bless you always –
Growing Prosperity – Get Yourself Prepared to Prosper!
Grow Financially as You Grow Spiritually
a process that…
requires starting at the beginning.
This means we have to prepare to prosper.
First we have to lay the foundation…
and then build on it.
Build a Strong Foundation to Prosper
Think about it. You would never try to build a house without first laying a foundation. It doesn’t matter how excited you are to finish the house so you can buy furniture and decorate, you must take time to put down a solid foundation first. Otherwise, you’ll soon find you’re living in a house so unstable, it comes tumbling down.
Now, that’s simple advice, isn’t it? Anyone with a little common sense knows it.
Yet why is it then, that in the spiritual realm, people make that mistake over and over?
We so often get excited when we see a blessing God has promised us in His Word. And we are so eager to have it, that we can find ourselves ignoring the foundational basics of godly living and pursue just that one thing.
This seems to be especially true in the area of prosperity. Out of desperation for a quick financial fix, people often pull a few prosperity promises out of the Bible and try to believe them, but without allowing God to change anything else in their lives.
Then of course, when it doesn’t work, those same people end up disappointed. And many will also then come to the conclusion that it just wasn’t God’s will for them to prosper.
Grow Financially as You Grow Spiritually
In preparing to prosper we need to come to the understanding that it is God’s will for all of His children to prosper.
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers.” — 3 John 2
Notice that this verse doesn’t just say ‘I want you to prosper.’ But it says, ‘I want you to prosper as your soul prospers.’ Financial prosperity is tied to the prosperity of our mind, will, and emotions.
We grow financially as we grow spiritually. How can we expect to handle financial prosperity without being spiritually mature? God knows how dangerous it is to put great wealth into the hands of someone who is too spiritually immature to handle it.
“The Prosperity of fools shall destroy them.” — Proverbs 1:32
You don’t have to look far to see evidence of that fact in the lives of people who have acquired financial riches apart from God and His ways. Most of the time, such riches just help people die younger and in more misery than they would have if they had been poor.
Why? Because they use their wealth to sin in greater measure. They often use their money to buy illegal and addictive substances and pay for an immoral lifestyle that eventually destroys them. So, when people gain wealth and use it to sin, it results in doing them more harm than good.
In light of this, it’s easy to see why God wants us to increase financially as we increase spiritually. In order for our prosperity to bring us blessing and not harm, we need to outgrow our fleshly foolishness.
Get Busy Growing and Prosper
“Okay, okay,” you say, “But I need financial help fast!”
Then quickly get busy growing and building your foundation for prosperity.
How? By finding out what God says in His Word and doing it. You see, the foundation of prosperity is a continual lifestyle built on the Word of God. It is doing, thinking, and saying what His Word says.
Financial miracles and breakthroughs can happen at any time, but that doesn’t mean we stop growing spiritually and building on the foundation. Godly prosperity is the result of putting God’s Word, all of it, not just the parts about financial prosperity, first place in life.
Make no mistake about it: Growing prosperity continues when we apply these principles on a daily basis and not just because we want money. We always put ourselves in position for increase when we seek after God and do things His way. Go now and build your foundation, continue to grow spiritually, dare to believe, and you will surely prosper.
May you get yourself prepared to prosper and live a life of growing prosperity!

Forgiven by Sanctus Real – Live on K-Love Christian Radio
“Forgiven” by Sanctus Real
from the album “Pieces of a Real Heart”
Featured live on K-Love Radio Station
“Well the past is playing with my head
And failure knocks me down again
I’m reminded of the wrong
That I have said and done
And that devil just won’t let me forget
In this life
I know what I’ve been
But here in your arms
I know what I am
And I don’t have to carry
The weight of who I’ve been
Cause I’m forgiven
My mistakes are running through my mind
And I’ll relive my days, in the middle of the night
When I wrestle with my pain, struggle with my pride
Sometimes I feel alone, and I cry
When I don’t think and I don’t feel like I belong anywhere
When I don’t measure up to much in this life
Oh, I’m a treasure in the arms of Christ ‘cause…”
We serve a loving and merciful God!
“Who is a God like you, that pardons iniquity,
and passes by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage?
He does not retain his anger forever, because He delights in mercy.
He will turn again, He will have compassion upon us;
He will subdue our iniquities; and will cast all their sins into
the depths of the sea.”
— Micah 7:18-20
Enjoy this song and have a wonderful day!

Procrastinate No More – Why Put Off For Tomorrow What You Can Do Today?
Stop Procrastination and Tap Into Your Enormous God Given Potential!
Why do we all have the natural tendency to…
do things tomorrow –
instead of today?
Have you been putting off…
and decisions in your life?
The Procrastination Trap
Often times we postpone our work and our choices in order to avoid discomfort. Sometimes we stall because of self-doubt or a sense of inadequacy associated with the task at hand. Other times, we simply lack the needed motivation to get started.
Whatever the reason, procrastination usually has negative consequences and simply creates stress as the projects and decisions begin to pile up…
And then there are spiritual consequences when we procrastinate. Important tasks in our church or volunteer organizations may be left undone and we may become a stumbling block to others. Our spiritual growth may slow to a stop, and worse of all, we may miss out on the blessing of God.
This is why we need to move beyond our fears and personal inadequacies and allow God to work in our lives. Once we admit our weaknesses to our heavenly Father, He is faithful to help us overcome them.
Put a Stop to Procrastination
If you find that procrastination is negatively affecting your life, then first confess this problem and turn it over to God. Then, try to identify the areas of your life in which you procrastinate. Ask yourself what feelings accompany your lack of motivation in these areas? Are you afraid, angry, bitter, or resentful?
Once we are ready to submit these emotions to God, He is ready to help us remove them from our lives. Then we have to choose to do today what we know to do, instead of making choices on the basis of feelings. The next time you do not ‘feel’ like working, stop and ask God to provide the godly motivation you need.
“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might.” — Ecclesiastes 9:10
Tomorrow is never guaranteed, and that helps explain the urgency felt in the above verse. Whatever task we may have at hand, we need to respond by doing it now and doing it well. Take whatever God has put in your hand and use it, without delay and without reserve, for the Lord.
God created us all with enormous potential to do great things. But if we want to tap into the potential that is currently beyond where we are now, we have to take action with the gifts and talents and opportunities God puts in front of us.
The clock is ticking. Don’t put off for tomorrow what you can do today. Especially do not procrastinate in serving the Lord; ask Him every morning for his help. Whatever God has put on your heart to do today; do it now with all your might and put a stop to procrastination.
May God give you the motivation to do today, what needs to be done today, so you can tap into your potential and manifest a life of growing prosperity!

Live Healthy – Is Stress and Anxiety Taking You for a Ride on the Emotional Roller Coaster?
Find Out How Stress Affects More Than Your Moods!
I know; much easier said than done in today’s busy world.
Are you stressed out these days?
Well you need to understand that worry and anxiety affects more than just our moods.
Truth is, even if we faithfully practice healthy habits like exercising and eating properly, the benefits we’ve gained from that will be thrown out the window if we let stress get the best of us!
The Stress Flare
How are your stress levels after you’ve had a long day at work and traffic on the freeway slows to a crawl? Or how about running late in the morning when getting the kids off to school because one unexpected thing after another continues to happen?
Listen, we’ve all been there as situations that are out of our control cause our tempers to flare and sometimes reach a boiling point. But what we need to be aware of is how this stress affects our body.
What happens in these stressful situations is that the body revs up production of a hormone called cortisol. Blood vessels constrict and divert the flow of blood from processes like digestion to the quick-acting muscles in the arms and legs, where an energy burst could be needed. The heart races to keep up with the frenzied motion, and the resulting hyper-alertness causes all sorts of anxiety.
We have to realize that even if we are health-conscious and go to great lengths to take care of our bodies, but we give stress, frustration, anger, worry, and anxiety the upper hand, we wipe out most of all the health benefits we have gained.
When we worry extensively, harbor bitterness, or give in to anger, these emotions pile stress on our immune system and weaken its ability to work properly. Stress is a key source for many ills such as: hypertension, elevated heart rate, headaches, and hormonal imbalances in the body.
Emotional Roller Coaster
Researchers are finding it more apparent that emotions are powerful forces within the human mind that clearly affect the body and soul. The proper adjustments in attitude can help prevent us from becoming unhealthy individuals.
Don Colbert, M.D., in his book Deadly Emotions, says that an emotional roller coaster saps a person physically and psychologically, which can leave both mind and body depleted of energy and strength. He also points out that medical studies indicate:
- The mind and body are linked, which means how you feel emotionally can impact how you feel physically.
- Individuals who are fighting depression have an increased risk of developing cancer and heart disease.
- Emotions such as anxiety and fear have been linked to heart palpitations, irritable bowel syndrome, tension headaches, and more.
Don’t Worry. Be Happy!
Negative emotions alter body chemistry and can be a force that affects us in many ways. For example, it can affect our ability to sleep and digest food.
When life’s pressures build, we tend to revert back to unhealthy habits and turn to junk food for comfort. And we have no problem justifying it because of the intense pressure at work or at home, in our relationships, or dealing with financial setbacks, etc.
Be aware though, that turning to a diet of comfort food, junky snacks, or gooey desserts is going backwards, not forward, on the road to healthy living. Instead of these rich foods taking your mind off your troubles, they can actually compound your difficulties and add even more emotional stress. Know this and strive to make the better choices even in the midst of your struggles.
“Have no anxiety about anything; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
— Philippians 4:6-7
So, go ahead; don’t worry – be happy! In reality, worry and stress are symptoms of a lack of trust in our heavenly Father. We need to work on doing what Jesus tells us in Matthew 6:34-35 to cure anxiety; which is to ‘seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will care for itself.’
May you seek first the kingdom of God and let His peace keep your heart and mind as you enjoy a life of growing prosperity!
God bless you always –
