Powerful Meditation – Can Christian Meditation Bring Revelation of Eternal Mysteries?
Biblical Meditation for Revelation of Eternal Mysteries
of discovering truths
found in God’s Word.
Every believer should have a
heart to want to meditate the
Word of God daily;
since this is how
biblical truths are revealed.
God’s Word is packed full of eternal mysteries just waiting for the diligent, faithful believer to discover. And just as discoveries in the natural world, benefit society, so do spiritual discoveries found in the living Word of God.
Consider the natural law of electricity, which has always been. Once discovered, the world was forever changed. Now consider God’s spiritual laws revealed in His Word. They have the greatest power for transformation in all areas of our lives.
An Invisible Reservoir of Abundance
“It’s almost as if there is an invisible reservoir of abundance in the universe that can be tapped if you will just obey certain spiritual laws.”
— Norman Vincent Peale
Believers who meditate the spiritual truths of God’s Word are sometimes compared to scientists in the natural realm. Why? Because in a very real sense, it involves the study and experimentation of God’s laws; which then result in discovery. And this discovery is God’s revelation to us. What people tend to call discovery is really the revelation of God.
Spiritual wonders and revelation await us when we begin to meditate on the laws of God. If we will meditate day and night on the Lord and on His Word, we will be the ones bringing the latest revelations to the world.
It first takes meditation on the information acquired from the Word of God, in order to receive revelation. Information alone will not bring revelation. Revelation knowledge comes from meditation in the Word of God and is revealed by the Holy Spirit.
God is a spirit and His truths are revealed through our spirit.
Ephesians 1:17 shows Paul praying to God, and asking that He would give unto us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. This is not just information, but revelation knowledge revealed by the Holy Spirit.
Christian meditation, on biblical truths, opens the door to life transforming power; by allowing the Holy Spirit to reveal revelation knowledge.
It gets even better. When believers mix their faith with the revelation knowledge of God’s Word, they soon manifest the blessings and promises of God in their life.
Are you ready to do what it takes to allow life transforming revelation knowledge to come into your life?
Why not get started today making Christian meditation on the Word of God a daily habit?
God bless you always,
How Can Christian Meditation Renew My Mind and Renew My Life?
Does Biblical Meditation Really Have the Power to Renew You?
living, and powerful Word of God.
Does it have the ability to renew
our minds and lives?
How do we know? God says so.
“Be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is the good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.”
— Romans 12:2
Renew Your Mind With Biblical Meditation
When we meditate on the Word of God we release the thoughts of our mind and put on the mind of Christ. There is an exchange for the world’s way of thinking with a renewing of our mind with God’s way of thinking.
“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.”
— Philippians 2:5
More good news: As believers we have the Holy Spirit living within us as a powerful aid to meditation. Jesus told us that the Father will send the Holy Spirit in His name to teach us all things and bring to remembrance all things Jesus said. (John 14:26)
There is great power in affirming the revealed truths of God’s Word!
“An affirmation is a statement of Truth consciously used so as to become the directing power of Life’s expression.”
— Orison Swett Marden
Renew Your Life With Biblical Meditation
The answer to renewing our life is found in the Word of God; in which we meditate and renew our mind with day and night.
Through the power of the Word of God and by meditation on it, we align ourselves with God’s thoughts, God’s provision, and God’s ways. God’s will is found in His Word. There is no greater and exciting place to be than in the center of God’s will.
Matthew 12:34 declares, “Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.”
With meditation we can challenge every thought that resists the knowledge of God by speaking the Word of God. Meditating, confessing, and acting on His ways holds life transforming power.
In Joshua 1:8 he advises: “Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”
I could go on and on…
The point is: As we renew our mind through meditation on the Word of God, we’ll soon find that the life transforming power of His Word renews our life!
Are you ready to let the divine, living, and powerful Word of God renew your mind and life through Christian meditation?
God bless you always,

Prosper and Experience the Good Life – 2 Keys to Discovering God’s Best!
2 Keys to Discovering GOD’s Best!
Are you one of the many seeking
to experience the good life?
Have you been searching for a
secret formula to have God’s best
poured out on your life?
The thing is, as we make decisions every day, our choices determine the quality of our lives. This is why it is very important to seek God’s guidance in order to experience His best.
How do we discover God’s best? The answer is two-fold.
2 KEYS TO DISCOVERING GOD’S BEST:
1. Realize that God’s Way is the Best Way
We must first realize that God’s way is the best way.
“My ways are higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.”
— Isaiah 55:9
Realizing that God’s way is better than our way is a difficult process for many of us. We like to think that we can figure things out on our own. We pride ourselves that we don’t need help from anyone else as we wrestle with our troubles and decisions.
However, our pride only keeps us from enjoying God’s best. And as many of us have already discovered, pride comes before the fall. (Proverbs 16:18)
We must understand that God longs to help us and bless us. There is truly no one who knows our needs better than He does.
“’For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’”
— Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
Acknowledging this opens our hearts to the second key that will help us discover God’s best.
2. Learn to Listen to God’s Voice
When we understand the first key, and that God not only knows our needs better than anyone else, but that He also longs to bless us, our hearts will be fertile ground to receive His guidance and instruction.
We can then begin to welcome the promptings of the Holy Spirit and to find practical insight for our daily lives as we read God’s Word.
“And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way, walk in it, when you turn to the right hand, and when you turn to the left.”
— Isaiah 30:21
A true indicator of hearing God’s voice will be a new and complete sense of peace. Jesus said that He gives peace “not as the world gives” (John 14:27), but “a peace that passes understanding.” (Phil. 4:7) His peace, then, must be the guiding force of each decision we make.
Get started today: Choose to let the peace of God guide you in your next important decision, while keeping in mind that God’s best will far exceed any good thing you could create on your own. Put these two keys to work in your daily life choices and get on track to discovering God’s best.
May you allow God’s voice to guide you into His best and a life of growing prosperity!

Growing Prosperity – Do These 2 Roadblocks Detour You from Receiving God’s Best?
Roadblocks In Our Way of Receiving God’s Best
wise choices in our everyday decisions.
Do you understand that God longs
to help you and bless you, and there is truly no one
who knows your needs better than He does?
If so, you’ll understand the importance of seeking His guidance in order to experience His best.
Seeking God’s best in our life decisions requires accepting God’s way and listening to His voice. There are however, some potential roadblocks that can stand in the way of receiving His best.
Do these 2 Roadblocks Detour You from Receiving God’s Best?
1. FOCUSING ON THE PROBLEM
A primary roadblock to making wise decisions is taking our eyes off God. Many times, when unforeseen trials or storms of life blow through, we place our focus on the problem instead of the ultimate solution, which is God’s wisdom.
When problems show up, we must not look at our shortcomings and inabilities. We must also avoid comparing ourselves to others. Instead, we must pray for the wisdom of God; which He says if we lack then to simply ask for it. (James 1:5)
“And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, ‘This is the way, walk in it,’ when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.”
— Isaiah 30:21
It is great to know that we can count on the Lord to help us overcome roadblocks to wise decision making. When our trust is in Him, and our focus on Him, He will guide our paths according to His will.
2. DETOURS FROM THE ENEMY
Another set of roadblocks we are likely to encounter are detours from Satan. The enemy will do everything in his power to lead us away from God’s best and into a foolish decision. We must discard ungodly counsel and be keenly aware of his conniving schemes.
Do not be ignorant of this roadblock. The Bible says that Satan is “like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” (1 Peter 5:8)
Do not be fearful of this roadblock either. We must pray for protection and rely upon the discernment of the Holy Spirit in order to avoid disastrous detours. We must submit to God, and then resist the devil and he will flee from us. (James 4:7)
In any state of weakness, that hinders our decision making, we must call upon the strength of the Lord. God has said, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12:9)
Now that you know this: Choose to let the wisdom and peace of God guide you in your next important decision. Begin to welcome the promptings of the Holy Spirit. Find practical insights and strength for daily living in the Word of God. Keep in mind: God’s best will far exceed any good thing we could create on our own.
May you experience God’s best and live a life of growing prosperity!

Self-Control Where Are You Now?
Self-Control vs. Self-Indulgence
We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming to bring you this commercial announcement…
YES, you can say ‘No’ to that temptation that is dangling in your face today!
“Blessed is the man that endures temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to them that love Him…”
— James 1:12-16
When temptation comes, follow Jesus’ example (Matthew 4) and quote the Word of God. Memorize and have scripture verses ready and tell satan to get behind you because ‘It is written!’
Confess empowering verses like:
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
— Philippians 4:13
Keep yourself submitted to God.
“Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.”
— Galatians 5:16
Sin may be fun for awhile, but when it comes time to reap the consequences of the sin sown… well let’s just say the party’s over.
So the next time temptation comes, do fifty sit-ups and…
“Thanks be to God, who always causes us to triumph in Christ!”
— 2 Corinthians 2:14
Have a God blessed day! 🙂
Help Me! How on Earth Do I Know What God’s Purpose and Will is for My Life?
Knowing God’s Will and God’s Purpose for Your Life
“What is God’s plan and purpose for my life?”
We sooner or later reach a time in life when we find our self questioning why we are here. We come to a point of knowing, deep inside, that there must be something more God would have for us to do with our lives.
Well, how can you know the will of God and what you should do with your life? Good question. And it all starts with the Word of God, since God’s Word is God’s will.
Knowing God’s General Will
The Bible teaches us how to live our lives. It is filled with instructions and directions and it reveals God’s general will for all of us. So, first and foremost, we need to get into God’s Word so that we can know what He wants from us. His Word is very powerful and will guide us.
Here are just a couple examples:
“Present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” — Romans 12:1-2
“Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” — 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
God’s will for man is not a hidden mystery. Anyone can open the Book and quickly see many things that God wants them to do (and not do). The chief aim and purpose of our lives should be to live according to His revealed will.
Knowing God’s Specific Will
Now you might be asking, “How do I know God’s specific plan for my life?” People often want God to tell them specifically what to do; like where to live, where to work, where to go to school, who to marry, etcetera.
Well, God can show us in many different ways. A loud, audible voice from heaven is not required, but listening to that still, small voice is. God has given us the Holy Spirit for guidance. The Spirit of truth is here to guide us into all truth. (John 16:13)
God can also direct us, through the events happening around us. And if we are already living daily according to God’s revealed will, decisions will be much clearer and easier to make. There is a peace that comes when we are pleasing God with our lives.
To get answers, we also need to pray and ask for God’s help and direction. When deciding between two options, the one that brings a greater peace is usually God’s will. Emotions sometimes create a false peace, but true peace will remain even after emotions fall.
Keep in mind: God allows us to make choices, but He is ultimately in control. We should trust Him always in faith that He will accomplish His will in our lives.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” — Proverbs 3:5-6
Plus, questions we should be asking are, “Am I doing this for me or for God? Is this what I want or what God wants?” The key is to desire to make choices that agree with God’s will. If a decision does not go against the Word of God, then we can follow our heart.
“It was the Lord who put it into my mind… I could feel His hand upon me… There is no question the inspiration was from the Holy Spirit because He comforted me with rays of marvelous illumination from the Holy Scriptures… No one should fear to undertake any task in the name of our Savior if it is just and if the intention is purely for His holy service.”
— Christopher Columbus (from his diary, in reference to his discovery of ‘the New World’)
Created with a Purpose
God does have great plans for your life! You were created by God, in His image, for a purpose. (Jeremiah 29:11) We have all been given unique gifts and talents. And just like our physical body is made up of many different parts, all unique, and all important to having a fully functioning body; so it is with the body of Christ.
Your gifts and talents have been given to you so you can be a blessing to the kingdom of God and make a positive contribution in life. So step out and act on the revealed knowledge you have already been given and use the talents you already have.
Then trust God to reveal more to you after you are faithful first in the little. Be confident that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion. (Philippians 1:6) God’s purpose for all is that He is glorified and the gospel and kingdom of God be advanced.
In Conclusion: The wise king Solomon tells us the conclusion of the whole matter and duty of man is to fear God and keep His commandments. (Ecclesiastes 12:13) He also encourages us to enjoy life and be happy with our work. Keep the Word of God your foundation and watch His great plan revealed before your very eyes. God is for you and He will help you.
May you seek first the kingdom of God and live a life full of growing prosperity!
God bless you,

Future Hope – Top 10 Inspiring Reasons to Believe Your Future Is Bright!
A Future Filled with Hope and Success
but it can sometimes seem hard to come by.
It is often said we have our whole life ahead of us.
Yet, many people go through difficult seasons in life and question what there is to look forward to.
No matter where you are, hope for the future is available for you to grab onto.
10 Inspiring Reasons to Believe Your Future is Bright:
1. Mistakes in Life Do Not Have the Final Say
If you make mistakes, you can start over. Mistakes are a part of the growing process and learning curve of life. As we start putting our mistakes in the past, our future begins to look bright.
2. You are a Work in Progress
God has promised to keep on working in you and with you. Growing and developing takes time and we should expect continued personal growth in our future.
3. Never Too Young or Old
You are never too young or old to fill your days with meaning and purpose. Consider Moses: He was 80 years old when God called him to lead the children of Israel out of Egypt!
4. Every Day is a New Day
Each day is new and fresh. You can make the most of each one. If we’ve fallen short today, we can look forward to a new day tomorrow. Thank God that His grace and mercy is new every day. (Lamentations 3:21-23)
5. You are Never Alone
God said He would never leave you or abandon you. (Hebrews 13:5) People may leave us, but God will not. The future is bright knowing God is in it.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Spirit.” — Romans 15:13
6. God Loves You
God loves you unconditionally! God loves you just the way you are. But like the saying goes, He also loves you too much to leave you the way you are.
7. You Have a Purpose in Life
God created you with a purpose and you can discover it. We have all been given unique gifts and talents that help us fulfill our purpose. Discovering our purpose and living it makes the future bright not only for us, but also those around us.
8. God Shall Supply All Your Needs
God will take care of your needs as you seek and obey His Word. (Philippians 4:19) “The Lord is my portion, says my soul: therefore will I hope in Him.” – Lamentations 3:24
9. Mansions in Heaven
God has created a wondrous place in heaven for His children. We have hope that after our life on earth we graduate to eternal life in heaven. “In My Father’s house are many mansions… I go to prepare a place for you.” – John 14:2
10. Guidance from the Most High God
If we trust, rely on, and acknowledge God, He will direct our life. The God that created the universe is available to help guide our life. “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” – Proverbs 3:6
Hope for the future may have faded for you. You may feel like you are in a prison and have no future. But no matter where you are, God has promised to bless you with a future filled with hope and success, not suffering. (Jeremiah 29:11)
Do yourself a favor: Have hope and believe your future is bright. Let the truth of God’s love set you free. God is a miracle-working God. He does not punish us all our life for our mistakes. He wants us to look forward and not backward. Put your hope and trust in God and allow Him to be an active part of your life.
May your hope be strong, your future bright, and your life full of growing prosperity!
