Growing Prosperity: Walk in the Abundance of God and Prosperous Health!
Claim the Divine Healing Power of God in Your Life
We all know that when our health is in tip-top condition
we feel like we can conquer the world.
Yet when sickness attacks, it becomes a chore
just to make it through the day.
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers.”
— 3 John 2
The truth about the abundance of God is that it is full of His grace and mercy. His love goes out to everyone. He provides us with immune systems, doctors, and medicine to help us fight off sickness and disease in the physical realm.
And it gets even better for the children of God. Why? Because sickness and disease are not only fought off by the immune system, which is God’s grace in our body, but it can also be fought off in the spiritual realm! How? With God’s Word!
Prosperous Words for Prosperous Health
Your words are powerful. Speak God’s Word and you won’t go wrong. Don’t simply remind yourself of His Word. Get serious, stir yourself up, and start quoting, praying, and confessing scriptures and tell your body to line up with the Word.
Proverbs 12:18 says that “the tongue of the wise is health.” Why does it say that? Because just a few chapters later it says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” (Proverbs 18:21)
So choose to speak wisely and stop dwelling on the problem.
Speak Prosperous Health
Search the abundance of God for His healing benefits:
- He sent His Word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. (Psalm 107:20)
- Do not forget My teaching, but keep My commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity. (Proverbs 3:1-2)
- I am the Lord that healeth thee. (Exodus 15:26)
- Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; Who healeth all thy diseases. (Psalm 103:2-3)
Thank God for His healing benefits and begin to use words like these as your own. And remember divine health comes from spending time with the Healer.
Prosper Physically, Spiritually, and Emotionally
Just because spiritual things are more powerful than physical things doesn’t mean you can ignore the physical body. Trying to separate spirit, soul, and body can’t be done. They all work together to make up you.
You are a spirit, who has a soul, that resides in a God created body. Ignoring one part is disastrous. It is important to strike a balance in your life so that you use what is in you physically, spiritually, and emotionally to live a complete and prosperous life.
Ignoring a part of you creates an unhealthy balance. Eating anything the flesh wants would be neglecting the body. Allowing anything into your thought life and failing to renew your mind with God’s Word would be neglecting the soul, which is the mind, will, and emotions.
Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Well you can have a testimony of the miraculous healing power of God. His Word covers all sickness and disease and is more credible and powerful than any family medical history.
God is omnipotent and He knows no limitations. Put His Word to work in your life.
Some food for thought: Your body will do what you tell it to do. What you put in your mind, spirit, and body all affects your body. So, if you are searching for divine prosperous health, then you need to get a balance; spirit, soul, and body.
May you walk in prosperous health from the abundance of God and enjoy a life of growing prosperity!

Will Christian Meditation Benefit My Life Long-term or Short-term Only?
Know What to Expect from Christian Meditation
a daily habit in every believer’s life.
Through meditating on God’s Word
we gain understanding, knowledge, and wisdom to live a successful and prosperous life.
Christian Meditation Short-term Benefits
The Word of God provides nourishment to our spirit, soul, and body. Just as one meal of food will not nourish and sustain us long-term, neither will one session of meditation on biblical truths.
Give us this day our daily bread. Why? Because God wants us to seek Him and walk with Him daily. If He gave us our monthly bread, think how many of us might wait until the next month to seek Him!
Meditation on God’s Word is a way to draw us closer to the Lord and strengthen our relationship with Him. We would not expect to continually know a person better after spending time with them only once.
Faith also comes from hearing the Word of God. But faith does not continue to grow from hearing only once. Take a look at the following verse and you will notice it says “hearing and hearing.” This is an ongoing process.
“Faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God.”
— Romans 10:17
The world we live in is busy and chaotic and constantly bombarding us with negative thoughts and images everywhere we go. Do you think this is a surprise to God? Of course not; He warns us not to be conformed to this world. This requires renewing our mind daily with God’s Word. (Romans 12:2)
Christian Meditation Long-term Benefits
Now that you understand the importance and need for daily meditation, and that the benefits are primarily short-term; let’s take a look at long-term results.
The Bible is the divine Word of God. It is living and powerful. (Hebrews 4:12) The scriptures are also full of “suddenly” verses. Meditating daily on His source of divine, living, power, sets us up for a suddenly.
Your life can change in a flash when the “suddenly” hits and the eyes of your understanding are opened. A transformation can take place in an instant that lasts a lifetime.
God also rewards obedience. And meditation on His Word is a commandment for all believers. Obedience to the things of God should be at the heart of every believer. The result is the manifestation of many blessings in our life on earth.
The ultimate long-term benefit, of obedience to God, is eternal rewards in heaven. (2 Corinthians 5:10)
Whichever way you want it: Christian meditation practiced out of a love and obedience for God has the power to benefit your life short-term and long-term; even eternally.
Why not commit to making meditation on God’s Word a priority in your life?
God bless you,
How Can Christian Meditation Guide You Into the Secret Place of the Most High God?
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?

What Are 3 Key Mistakes Christians Make When Meditating God’s Word?
Overcome Obstacles that Try to Keep You From Time in His Divine Presence
As children of God we should have a heart to seek wisdom and understanding of the Lord’s ways.
“My mouth shall speak of wisdom, and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.” — Psalm 49:3
There is great wisdom in the Word of God just waiting to be revealed… but we have to do our part to discover it.
When Christians begin to meditate, they often make these 3 key mistakes:
1. Meditation Becomes a Religious Chore
First off, Christian meditation should not be looked at as a religious chore. We should look at it as an exciting time that keeps us blessed, happy, peaceful, successful, and prosperous even in times of trouble; because we are tapped in the power of God.
Once we make it a chore, our heart is no longer in it and we are no longer open to receiving. This essentially defeats the purpose to begin with.
So always remember what a blessing and privilege it is to spend time alone with the King of kings; God Himself. It is a gift to spend time in the power of His divine presence.
2. Lack of Flexibility When Meditating
The second mistake that many Christians make is jumping into meditation with a strict, fixed schedule. This can be a setup for failure if flexibility is not included in the mix.
We all know life is constantly showing up with the unexpected. And unfortunately, an unexpected interruption in a strict meditation routine will become an easy excuse to stop meditating all together. Allow yourself to be flexible with time and method, especially when getting started.
3. Failing to be Consistent When Meditating
The third mistake is failing to be consistent in the long run. Meditation can be practiced in different forms. So start with one or two ways that feel comfortable for you. Begin with a simple method and schedule that will allow you to be consistent.
The goal is to make meditating God’s Word a habit. That way, the Word of God will be built up in us and help us stand strong when the storms of life blow through. It is not about waiting to meditate as soon as a need arises in our life.
If you are a believer that has not yet made meditation a regular part of your life, well there is no better day than today to get started. If you are already meditating on God’s Word regularly, then keep at it and be consistent. The more time spent in meditation the easier it becomes.
In conclusion: Meditation enables us to purposefully take the time to draw near and make a connection to God. Do not let these common mistakes get in your way. We are well rewarded for the little effort meditating takes!
Are you ready to commit to daily Christian meditation in the empowering, living Word of God?
God bless you,
Growing Prosperity – To Be Blessed or Not To Be Blessed? That is the Question!
Why Not Grab Hold of a More Sure Force to Help You Prosper in Life?
However, the sad fact of the matter is that most people have bought into the “luck” system…
They believe that some people are just plain lucky and others are not. And if you don’t happen to be one of the lucky ones, well then, you are just “out of luck” and should never expect to prosper.
Well I’m here to tell you, the force you want present, in order to experience a life of growing prosperity, is the blessing of the God!
Yes, those who are blessed are obviously happy, and that happiness is on top of divine favor, and supernatural opportunities the blessing of God provides.
Do you want to be blessed or take your chance with luck?
Blessed and Highly Favored
How do you get the blessing? It simply requires switching from believing in the “luck” system, to believing in the blessing of God, and putting your faith in God.
First things first. Gaining knowledge and understanding of the blessing of God is required before believing and receiving it. The blessing of the Lord is important to God and He wants to see His children blessed.
In Numbers 6:23-27, He even gave specific instructions on how to bless them. They were told to say the following:
“The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you. The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.”
After that God tells them He will put His blessing on them.
People used to take their children to Jesus and He would bless them. The last order of business Jesus did on this earth was to give a blessing. (Luke 24:50) God sent Jesus to bless us. (Acts 4:26)
A Blessing of Supernatural Abundance
In order to connect with the blessing of God and get results that manifest in life, it is important to mix your faith with it. God told Abraham he would bless him so great he would be a blessing to the whole world. (Genesis 12:3) Believers inherit the blessing of Abraham by faith. (Galatians 3:8-9) Faith requires believing and obeying the Word of God. Once you believe in the blessing and mix faith with it, it can increase!
“There is no telling where the blessing will end when you believe God.”
— Smith Wigglesworth
“Blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.” (Luke 1:45) God wants us to grab hold of His word in the same way. He wants us to boldly say in faith that we trust Him to do what He has promised. God is pleased when we manifest a faith that holds Him to His word.
The blessing of the Lord is supernatural and gives access to all the resources of heaven. You are called to carry a blessing and bless others. (Genesis 12:2) And remember, others can’t curse what God has blessed. (Numbers 22:12)
What is stopping you from being blessed? The blessing of God is yours if you want it. You can know it is for you and boldly claim it by faith. Get knowledge of it, believe it, speak it, and enjoy the benefits of abundant prosperity from it in all areas of your life; spiritually, mentally, physically, and financially.
May you tap into the blessing of God and experience a life of growing prosperity!

Meditation for the Christian Believer – How Will Meditating on God’s Word Benefit My Life?
Powerful, Life-Changing Benefits from Christian Meditation!
True meditation comes from the heart and with a desire to please God;
not with an attitude of what’s in it for me.
A key point to note: The Bible commands us to meditate and obedience to God’s Word always benefits our life.
Meditation on God’s Word Draws Us Closer to Him and Brings Blessings
Christian meditation is based on the Word of God. Meditating daily helps reveal God and causes us to be blessed. David discovered this too, and tells us in Psalm 1:1-2 that those who delight themselves in the law of the Lord and meditate on it day and night are blessed.
Meditation on God’s Word is time spent with God. And like all relationships, time invested helps make it stronger and more intimate.
Life and Grace Come Out of the Word of God
From the Word of God comes life. God has already given us everything that pertains to life and godliness (spiritual training). Grace and peace are multiplied through the knowledge of God and His divine power has given us all things that pertain to life and godliness. (2 Peter 1: 2-3)
Meditation taps into a source of blessings that goes beyond the natural world. It allows us to tap into the very life of God.
Our Purpose, Inheritance, and the Promises of God are Revealed in His Word
We were created for a purpose. And looking to our Creator will reveal His plan, so that we can live a fulfilling life. The Lord says He has plans to prosper us and not to harm us; plans to give us hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)
“We have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things after the counsel of His own will.” – Ephesians 1:11
If we want to know God’s will for our lives, then we need to read His will. How can we claim our inheritance if we don’t know what belongs to us?
God’s Word is loaded with the next promise just waiting to be launched in our life. The Bible tells us we have been given exceeding great and precious promises so that we might be partakers of His divine nature. (2 Peter 1:4) God delights in honoring His promises that we bring to Him.
Mark my words: Meditating brings about revelation of God’s Word and causes us to act on it. This in turn results in the manifestation of God’s promises and blessings in our lives. A purposeful, victorious life comes when we are connected to the life of God.
Is Christian meditation a part of your daily life?
