Growing Prosperity: 5 Things You Need to Abundantly Receive the Abundance of God!
Is Your Measure of Prosperity Limited by Your Ability to Receive?
by many human factors,
including our ability to receive.
If we were to enjoy the abundance of God
according to His willingness and ability to give,
there would be no poverty among us; for surely there is no lack in God!
The Giver and The Receiver
If you were given the choice to prosper according to your ability to ask and receive, or according to God’s willingness to give, what would you choose?
Who would even hesitate to choose the generous giving of God? We cannot even want a blessing that God has made available as eagerly as He wants to give it to us!
Our asking is limited by human factors. And our boldest request is sure to be small compared to God’s unlimited willingness to give and His boundless ability to perform what He wills.
“Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.”
— Ephesians 3:20
God is infinite, but it is not enough that we acknowledge the infinite abundance of God. We must also believe that He is infinitely generous to give and bless us out of His abundance.
So let me ask you: Why are Christians so poverty stricken? Their God is the Most High God, possessor of heaven and earth, and rich beyond the powers of man to comprehend. Well of course, the problem is not with God the giver. The problem is on our receiving end, so let’s take a look at that.
5 Things You Need to Abundantly Receive the Abundance of God:
Only a little faith is required to believe that God is infinitely abundant. However, to believe that God is a generous giver as well as the possessor of infinite abundance requires an advanced faith.
We need to be convinced that God is generous, goodhearted, kind and ready to pour out His blessings upon us. To gain a personal revelation of this and increase our faith, meditating on the Word and immersing ourselves in the Scriptures is a must. This will help validate our expectations.
Faith needs to be exercised to be effective and help us grow in our ability and capacity to receive abundantly. So believe God for financial abundance, spiritual abundance, and also abundance of love, joy, and peace. Have faith in God to prosper in every area of your life.
2. RECEPTIVE MINDSET
A receptive mindset to prosper is needed to receive in a greater capacity. This requires changing our focus from a scarcity mentality, to a more than enough mentality. The world would have us focus on lack, shortages, and loss to destroy our abundant mindset.
But, God is the God of more than enough and we should not put limits on Him. Our focus should be on the abundant promises in His Word.
Whatever you lack, believe God for it and expect to receive. Believe that God will supply all your needs; believe that He meets your needs and provides for those who seek Him.
A serious responsibility goes along with the abundance that is manifested in our lives. Selfish stewardship over the gifts, talents, and blessings we receive can destroy their usefulness and our ability to receive more.
The gifts we have been blessed with are meant to be used to benefit others; not only ourselves. We are blessed to be a blessing.
Generosity opens the door to receiving. Giving and receiving go hand-in-hand. The more we give the more we receive. A generous heart is the heart of God and those with a generous spirit are blessed.
“Give, and it shall be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over… For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
— Luke 6:38
It is impossible to be too thankful to God, but it might be good to try. It is God’s will that we give thanks in everything. (1 Thessalonians 5:18) Those who maintain an attitude of gratitude also keep their ability to receive wide open.
Now what? Are you ready to receive in a measure more in keeping with God’s liberality? If so, then it is time for you to make these five things part of your life and abundantly start receiving the abundance of God.
May your ability to receive continue to increase and move you into an abundant life of growing prosperity!

Abundance of Joy – 7 Things You Must Know to Overcome a Depressive Spirit!
How to Keep the Abundant Joy of the Lord Flowing in Your Life
Unfortunately many people struggle
day-to-day with a depressive spirit.
Yes, there are those who naturally find it
easy to go about their days light-hearted and joyful.
However, for most of us, we have to learn through the Word
how to keep the abundant joy of the Lord flowing in our lives.
Living in joy is the only way to live. If you agree, and you’re ready to say good-bye to a depressive spirit, then continue reading to get yourself started today.
7 Things You Must Know to Replace a Depressive Spirit with an Abundance of Joy:
1. In Times of Tribulation, Joy Does Not Have to Leave You
You have a choice to either trust God or worry; choose joy or anxiety. Either way you’ll be confronted with trouble. Jesus said it is possible to be in peace and of good cheer, even in the midst of tribulation, because He has overcome the world.
“In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
— John 16:33
Really it’s totally up to you. Just because you have trouble doesn’t mean you have to lose your joy. You can choose to be full of cheer, because you know that Jesus has already overcome.
2. You Can Laugh at Trouble, Rather Than Align Yourself With It
Your reactions to the storms of life are what will determine your success. If you give in to trouble and begin rehearsing the problems, the joy of the Lord in your life will suddenly be replaced with worry and anxiety. To keep your joy, you must major on the promises of God and not the problems of this world.
3. Every Human on Earth is Searching for Joy
Joy is one thing everyone wants out of life. If you choose to live in joy, others will be literally drawn to you. You will become like a magnet for the depressed and brokenhearted who are looking for hope. Joy is contagious.
Living in the joy of the Lord is one of the most effective ways to reach others, share the love of Christ, and be blessed to be a blessing.
4. God Forgives and Wants You to Start Living in Joy Again
God is waiting to forgive those who repent and ask for forgiveness. He wants you to get back up and start living in joy again. It is the devil that condemns and shames you with your past.
Resist thoughts of failure and refill yourself with joy by getting in the Word and dwelling in the secret place of the Most High.
5. Joy Can Keep You Living Well
The healing power of joy works like medicine in your body.
“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine; but a broken spirit drieth the bones.”
— Proverbs 17:22
Your body wasn’t created to live worrying about every little thing. You were created to walk in the joy of the Lord every day of your life. His joy can keep you living well.
6. Joy Gives Strength
Joy is enthusiastic and empowering. The joy of the Lord is your strength. (Nehemiah 8:10) Lose your joy and you’ll lose your strength and enthusiasm.
7. In God’s Presence is Fullness of Joy
The joy of the Lord springs out of a solid relationship with the living God. Much is manifested from a solid enthusiastic relationship with Him. God has blessed us abundantly and we have no place to complain, but only to give thanks.
“You will show me the path of life: in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”
— Psalm 16:11
So there you have it: When we begin to release the power of the Word in our life, we begin to overcome a depressive spirit with the abundant joy of the Lord flowing in our lives.
May you live a life flowing with abundant joy and growing prosperity!
God bless you –
Yes, You Can Thrive and Live a Long Abundant and Prosperous Life!
Growing Prosperity – Thrive, Prosper, Flourish and Have Good Success
possible in every area of life.
God’s desire is that we thrive in life;
not just survive.
However, to get off the treadmill going nowhere will require making the right choices moving forward.
Thrive, Prosper, and Flourish
Thrive is defined as: to make steady progress, to prosper, to grow vigorously, and to flourish. If we are willing to follow the instructions and plans God has given us we will thrive. It is possible to have growing prosperity and flourish in any area of life.
Thriving Crowd or Surviving Crowd?
If we want to get out of survival mode and begin to thrive, then a key choice we need to make is to not hang out with the wrong crowd. We ultimately become like the company we keep.
Do you continually surround yourself with unmotivated, negative minded people that do not thrive? If so, you can’t be surprised if you simply survive in life.
Hanging out continually with the wrong crowd will stunt your growth and rob you of the power to prosper and reach your greatest potential. As you become more determined to follow God’s plan you’ll soon find you become more attracted to those who are serious about their walk with God.
Prosper and Have Good Success
God wants to reveal every good path to you and He has provided sound wisdom that will enable you to live up to your full potential. However, it is up to you to study and meditate His Word regularly…
Then as you put those words of wisdom into practice you will make your way prosperous and have good success. (Joshua 1:8)
When we plant ourselves firmly in God’s Word, we tap into His streams of living water and find that everything we do is fruitful. So instead of running on a treadmill going nowhere and watching things around us wither, everything we do will prosper. (Psalm 1:3)
Yes, you can move out of survival mode and be on your way to thriving. Regardless of your current situation, your future is bright and waiting for you to flourish mightily.
God’s plan is for you to be like those described in Psalm 92:12-14 and flourish like a palm tree in the courts of our God and remain fruitful in old age.
“The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing.” — Psalm 92:12-14
The Good Life Is For You!
Regardless of your background or age, you can grow vigorously and live out God’s good plan for your life. If you refuse to hang out with the wrong crowd and are determined to feed on God’s Word, you can expect to thrive.
It may not come overnight, but if you are faithful to live by the Word of God you can live a long and fruitful life.
Decide today. Make the choice to thrive and not just survive. Don’t get stuck on the treadmills of life that want to steal God’s good plan for you. You were created to win. Yes, you can thrive and live a long, abundant, prosperous life.
May you thrive and flourish in the Word of God and live a long life of growing prosperity!

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?

Growing Prosperity – People Want to Know Your Secret When You Prosper in Tough Times!
How Do Some Continue to Prosper In Tough Economic Times?
makes people take notice.
They will want to know your secret.
And sharing your secret for –
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!

Growing Prosperity – A Powerful Secret to Manifest an Abundant Harvest!
How to Plant the Seed of Faith and Harvest Abundance
Who would expect a farmer to reap a harvest without having planted seed months earlier?
As believers operating by faith, we also need to follow this example; naturally and spiritually.
What is the secret to getting this process going?
2 Great Faith Secrets to Planting Seed
Jesus tells us how to plant the seed of faith. He tells us in Luke 17 that if we had faith as a seed, we would speak to the situation or problem area in our life. He gives us two great faith secrets: ONE; that faith works like a seed, and TWO; the way to plant it is to speak it.
“If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”
— Matthew 17:20
In order to manifest a harvest we have to plant the seed by speaking. Our faith must be mixed with the promised seed of God’s Word. The life is in the seed and the way to plant it is by saying it, speaking it, proclaiming it.
The Law of Seedtime and Harvest
Many people don’t know how they got in the mess they are in. However, most of the time, the problem is their mouth. The mouth can deceive the heart. What we say is what we sow, and too often we are sowing the exact thing we do not want!
Have you ever heard the following?: ‘We’re going broke,’ ‘I never have enough,’ ‘I can never get ahead,’ ‘Nothing ever works out for me,’ ‘I’m afraid I’ll lose my job,’ ‘I always get sick.’
Speaking and praying the things we don’t want only opens the door to fear, and then fear replaces our faith. The things we say are the things we will reap. (Mark 11:23) This really is no great secret.
“Be not deceived, God is not mocked; for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
— Galatians 6:7
With seedtime and harvest we also need to take into account the time factor. Sowing is a process. Sure, there will be some who are highly developed in their faith and see the manifestation of some things very quickly. But the normal way of faith and confession is to start sowing weeks and months before the time the harvest is needed; just like the farmer who plans and prepares ahead of time.
Manifesting an Abundant Harvest
The kingdom within you has been sown with the seed of what you have been speaking. And the sowing and reaping process works for you just as it does for the farmer who goes to sleep, and gets up, and the ground brings forth the fruit.
Begin sowing seeds of abundance by speaking something such as:
“My God supplies all my need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus; I have abundance and prosper; because I have given, it is given unto me good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over.”
You say and sow these incorruptible seeds concerning finances, and then while you are sleeping, they go to work to manifest a harvest in your life. One day you will wake up and see the seeds you have planted and watered begin to sprout.
Do yourself a favor: Take the promises of God’s Word and mix your faith with them. Mix your faith with the Word and plant it in your heart by speaking it. The life is in the seed; in the promise of God. So if you plant the promises of God in your heart, you can expect to manifest an abundant harvest.
May you sow the seeds of God’s abundant promises by faith and reap a life of growing prosperity!

Growing Prosperity – Generosity is Like the Secret Sauce of the Abundant Life!
How to Virtually Guarantee You Will Experience Growing Prosperity?
Generosity is like the secret sauce of an abundant life because it causes a person to receive more than they give…
It is said that the two greatest motivating forces in a person’s life are their desire for gain and their fear of loss. Generosity directly affects both.
Generosity Equals Growing Prosperity
If there was something you could do to virtually guarantee you would never lack for your physical needs, and that you would experience growing prosperity, would you want to know what it is? Well good news, because that something is available to you today. All you have to do is to become truly generous.
The wise Solomon tells us that if we are generous we will never lack for anything, but every true need will be provided and we will have growing prosperity. (Proverbs 11:24-25)
A generous person readily and freely gives a considerable portion of what they have to meet the needs of others and they do so without any expectation of getting something in return. And being generous isn’t just limited to financial and material generosity. It is actually about meeting the real needs of others, regardless of whether it is with your finances, actions, or emotional help.
Too many people think they have to be rich before they can be generous. But this is simply not true. We all have something to give, such as; time, kind words, thoughtfulness, and considerate acts.
Additional Benefits of Generosity
Generosity is one of the most admired characteristics anyone can express. Think about the business man who donates large amounts to charity, or the child who gives his hard-earned allowance to a disaster relief, or the elderly woman who freely gives a portion of what little food she has to a food drive. We appreciate and admire their generous giving.
However, appreciation and admiration are not the only benefits of generosity. A generous person will experience heartfelt joy when they help meet the needs of others. They will be happier and find that just as they refresh others, they too are refreshed. Their own needs will be abundantly supplied for.
“There is one who scatters, yet increases more;
And there is one who withholds more than is right,
But it leads to poverty.
The generous soul will be made rich,
And he who waters will also be watered himself.”
— Proverbs 11:24-25
What about those who are not generous? Well the same proverb previously mentioned says they will fall into poverty. This could be financial or material poverty, or emotional poverty. They tend to never be satisfied with what they have and continually need more.
Why not choose to develop your generous side? Generosity begins in the heart and is expressed through action. Extending generosity to others is a win-win situation. As you willingly bless others, watch as your own needs are abundantly supplied for in life.
May you be generous always and enjoy growing prosperity!
