Prosperity Minded – 6 Conflicting Thoughts Battle For Your Success and Failure
Prosperity Minded Leads to a Life of Success!
Successful people train their minds to
think success and see themselves
attaining their goals.
They understand the power of their thoughts,
attitudes, and beliefs and use them as tools to become successful.
So, become prosperity minded and become successful. Sounds easy, right? Wrong!
The problem? Success doesn’t come easy because thoughts and attitudes of failure bombard us daily. Take a look at these six conflicting thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs that battle daily for our success and failure.
6 Conflicting Thoughts That Battle For Your Success and Failure:
CONFIDENCE vs WORTHLESSNESS
Success says, “You are confident and you can do whatever it takes to succeed and prosper.”
Confident people see themselves as being able to overcome any challenges on the road to success. Their confident attitude empowers them to move forward with a vision of success and the ability to rise up and take on any task at hand.
“For the LORD shall be your confidence, and shall keep your foot from being snared.”
— Proverbs 3:26
On the other hand, failure says, “You are worthless, you don’t have what it takes to succeed, and nobody else believes in you either.”
Those who lack confidence and struggle with feelings of worthlessness, are filled with thoughts of assumed failure. They are sure no one else believes in them and they in turn take on the same belief and lack the confidence needed to stay motivated toward success.
DETERMINATION vs DEFEAT
Determination says, “You are committed to the end, no giving up.”
Determined people are prosperity minded and the motivation to succeed seems to emerge naturally from the depths of their heart and soul. Tell the determined person they can’t, and it only fuels their determination to show you they can.
“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
— 1 Corinthians 15:57
Now, on the other hand, defeat says, “You are sure to fail and make a fool of yourself, like you always do, why even bother trying.”
People that live with a spirit of defeat seldom accomplish anything meaningful because they avoid all situations that might result in failure. Thoughts of failure overtake their mind so much so that they rarely make goals toward success, let alone take steps to achieve them. They constantly create excuses why they should not even try.
FAITH vs FEAR
Faith says, “You trust in God and His great power to guide your daily choices toward success. Your future is bright.”
People with strong faith believe they can achieve their goals, and they aren’t afraid to take risks because they trust in God to direct them and help them on their road to success and prosperity. Wrong turns and set backs on the way, do not shake them up, because they have faith that God will work things out and that He is ultimately in control.
“Jesus said unto him, ‘If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes.’”
— Mark 9:23
Fear says, “You always have bad luck, you have no control, and something bad is sure to happen. You are destined to fail.”
Those who live with a spirit of fear have a mind full of negative thoughts of worry, lack, tragedy, no control, no options, and blame toward others and situations. They avoid risks at all costs to avoid any embarrassment of failure. They feel stuck and they have no faith in themselves or God to make choices and do what it takes to succeed.
Take Control – Prosperity Minded
Success has no limits for those who are prosperity minded and get control of their thoughts, attitudes and beliefs. A prosperity minded person who defines his or her goals based on God’s Word will find they begin to soar to new levels in all areas of life, including; relationships, spirituality, finances, and career.
“I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.”
— Philippians 4:13
Your goal now? Train yourself to have an abundance of success attitudes, thoughts, and beliefs. Let the Lord be your confidence. Give thanks to God who gives us victory through Jesus Christ. Have faith in God. Believe in yourself and know you can do all things through Christ. Think success – be prosperity minded.
May you be prosperity minded, strive for success, and live a life of growing prosperity!

AFFIRMATION CREATES POWER by Orison Swett Marden – Part 2 of 3
Part 2 of 3
Perpetual Positive Affirmation Creates a Life of Harmony, Achievement, and Success
positive state of mind, never with a negative.
Plus force, not minus, does things.
The dominant qualities are all positive,
assertive, aggressive, and they require a corresponding
attitude of mind for their exercise and application.
A man who has not these dominant, qualities
can never be a leader or independent; he must be a trailer,
an imitator, until he changes his thought from negative to positive,
from doubtful to certain, from shrinking and retiring to asserting and advancing.
It is the decisive, positive soul that wins.
If you wish to amount to anything in the world, never for one moment permit the idea to come into your mind that you are unlucky, that you are less fortunate than other human beings. Deny it with all the power you can muster. Discipline yourself never to acknowledge weakness or think of mental, physical, or moral defects. Deny that you are a weakling, that you cannot do what others can do; that you are handicapped and must be satisfied to take an inferior position in the world. Strangle every doubt as you would a viper threatening your life.
Never talk, think, or write of your poverty or unfortunate condition. Cut out of your life all thought that limits, hampers, dwarfs, and darkens it. These are ghosts of fear; the Creator never made them or intended them to haunt or torment you. He made you for happiness, for joy, for conquest over your environment.
Persistently affirm that the Creator handicapped no one; that our limitations are all our own. Resolve that, come what may, you will be an optimist; that there shall be nothing pessimistic in you; believe in the final triumph of the right, the victory of all that is true and noble.
Affirm that you are one of the most fortunate beings. Congratulate yourself that you were born just in the nick of time, and in just the right place; that there is a definite work for you to do that on one else can do; and that you are one of the most lucky persons in the world to have the opportunity, the health, the education, to do the thing you are bound to accomplish.
If you are out of work and poor, just throw out of your mind every idea of penury and poverty. Hold the thought of plenty, of abundance, of all good, which the Creator has promised you. Stoutly deny that you are poor, or miserable, or unlucky; claim that you are lucky, that you are well, vigorous, and strong; that you must succeed; and you will succeed.
Always affirm that the Creator who gave you the longing to be somebody and to do something in the world, has also given you the ability and the opportunity to realize the ambition.
When you set your mind toward achievement, let everything about you indicate success. Let your manner, your dress, your bearing, your conversation, and everything you do speak achievement and success. Carry always a success atmosphere with you.
You will find a wonderful advantage in starting out every morning with the mind set toward success and achievement by permeating it with thoughts of prosperity and harmony, whether by repetition of set formulas, as some advise, or not. It will then be so much the harder for discord to get into the day’s work.
If you are inclined to doubt your ability to do any particular thing, school yourself to hold the self-trust thought firmly and persistently. It is the assumption of power, of self-trust, of confidence in yourself, in your integrity or wholeness, that cannot be shaken, that will enable you to become strong, and to do, with vigor and ease, the thing you undertake.
You will find that the perpetual holding of these ideals will change your whole outlook upon life:
- You will approach your problems from a new standpoint, and
- life will take on a fresh meaning.
- This perpetual affirmation will put you in harmony with your surrounding;
- it will make you contented and happy; and
- it will be a powerful tonic for your health.
- It will help you to build up individuality and personal power.
- It will make your brain clearer, your thought more effective.
Keeping the mental machinery clean makes for vigorous thinking, decisive action.

Prosperous Thoughts – 7 Things to be Mindful of to Help Manifest Abundance!
Change Defeating Thoughts to Prosperous Thoughts
manifest prosperous living.
No doubt: successful individuals do not
reach their goals by filling their minds with
thoughts of failure and defeat.
Overcoming the challenges and obstacles,
on the road to abundance, requires a determination to succeed and a positive mindset.
“We demagnetize ourselves by wrong thinking and lack of faith…We see only the obstacles in our path, and forget that man, working with God, is greater than any obstacle that can oppose itself to his will.”
— Orison Swett Marden
7 Things to be Mindful of to Help Manifest Abundance:
1. Question Self-Limitations
Question why you limit yourself from reaching your potential. Are you simply afraid of what others will think if you don’t succeed at your first attempt? Do not put a limit on your potential and abilities. If you continually say “I can’t” then you won’t even try. Instead ask “How can I?”
2. Question Limitations From Others
Why accept the limitations others put on you? People enjoy telling us what we can and cannot do. Don’t fall into the trap of filling your mind with other people’s limitations.
3. Monitor Everyday Thoughts
Turn on the mental radar, because even the most well intentioned person will find negative, defeating thoughts try to sneak in under the radar. To often we begin to affirm those negative thoughts without even realizing it.
4. Reprogram Negative Attacks
A passionate dream that you desire to accomplish is hard to keep to yourself. It is normal to want to share your ambition with others, but also way too common to have others ridicule you about it. Learn to quickly reprogram the negative attacks and laugh it off when others laugh at you!
5. Visualize Your Abundance
Keep a visual image constantly in your mind of the goals you desire to manifest. Place pictures and notes up around your living and workspace that positively affirm a mental image of your desired goals.
6. Renew Your Mind Daily
Renew your thought life daily like a mental bath. Keep your thoughts positive, clean, and empowering. The most empowering way to renew your mind is with the Word of God and filling it with who He says you are and what you can do.
7. Turn Thought Habits Into Action Habits
Continue to be mindful of your thought life until positive, productive, prosperous thoughts are a habit. Once they become habit, you’ll find that positive, productive, prosperous actions follow. As these actions become a habit, you’ll automatically move toward a prosperous life.
Final thoughts: Regardless of all the negative thoughts currently filling your mind, it is possible to change those thoughts to the better and become prosperous. Begin today to start making some positive changes to your thinking and soon positive changes will manifest in your behavior and your life!
May your mind be filled with prosperous thoughts and your life be filled with growing prosperity!

Achievement: Why Live with Regrets When You Can Live to Succeed?
Achieve Success With No Regrets!
personal growth and that is a lifelong
learning process of ups and downs.
Do you let setbacks, failed ventures, or
wrong choices weigh you down with regrets?
Refuse to let your life fill up with regrets.
Why? Because living in a state of regret will hinder your personal growth and ability to achieve success.
The Pain Of Regret
Regret is a feeling or sense of sorrow or remorse over a past choice. Regret is like a first cousin to condemnation. They both leave us feeling guilty, defective, and unhappy.
In the short term, this can actually be a positive thing…
- It is like a wake-up call to show us how our life got off course.
- It makes us take a look at the choices we have been making in life.
- It makes us realize we can’t live this life on our own and it is important to cry out to the Lord for help.
“The godly cry out and the Lord hears; He saves them from all their troubles.”
— Psalm 34:17
We can, and should, learn from our mistakes and successes on our journey of life. And no doubt, living with regret and condemnation is a negative, low confidence, unhealthy state to be in. It keeps us stuck and unable to move forward.
“The LORD redeems his servants; no one will be condemned who takes refuge in Him.”
— Psalm 34:22
Remember: we have been blessed with the gift of life and a purpose for our time here on this earth. Why live in a way that causes constant regrets, and even worse, regrets we may have once we are in heaven and look back on how we lived our lives?
Success Is Full Of Challenges
The road to success is full of challenges and struggles. Achievement in any degree requires work, and often an outright battle. The storms of life can blow through and make it a fight just to survive at times, let alone stay on track pursuing our goals and desires.
“A righteous man may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all.”
— Psalm 34:19
If you look back in history, the greatest, most successful individuals had to invest a lot of effort in order to successfully achieve their goals. They had to push through their challenges with much determination. So we shouldn’t be surprised at the labor involved in achieving our goals.
Live With Purpose to Succeed
Live with no regrets by choosing to fight through the battles that come your way. Don’t quit. Run the race to finish – run the race to win.
“Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us…looking unto Jesus.”
— Hebrews 12:1-2
Take a moment to feel the pain of past regrets. No doubt you prefer to avoid those feelings of remorse, caused from not having done something you should have, or for making poor choices.
Today is the day to say no more regrets. Do not be afraid to step out and give the thing you know you should be doing a try. Do everything in your power to achieve it. Don’t give up at the first hurdle in your way. Learn to move beyond your mistakes. We all make them.
And remember always: “There is therefore now no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 1:8)
Purpose to make positive choices in life and avoid future regrets. Leave the past in the past and move forward with no regrets.
Put this to the test right away: Maintain the mindset that you will always do your best to achieve whatever task is at hand. Strive to be the best person you can possibly be. Live life with no regrets – live to succeed.
May you choose to always do your best, live an amazing, successful life with no regrets, full of growing prosperity!

Inspiration – How to Almost Guarantee Yourself a Great Day Every Day!
Dramatically Improve Your Chances to Have a Great Day
you can just about guarantee yourself
a great day every day.
Well, it’s not.
The way in which we begin a day largely determines how the day is going to go.
5 Techniques to Inspire You and Dramatically Improve Your Chances for a Great Day:
1. Remind Yourself You Are NOT Alone
Discover for yourself, what a wonderful way it is to wake up each morning with the reminder you are not alone. When you return to a semi-conscious state after a night of sleep, and while still in bed, repeat Psalm 139:18.
“When I awake, I am still with you.”
— Psalm 139:18
What does it mean? All night long while sleeping, we have been under the watchful care of our Heavenly Father. But now the day has come with all its potential problems, responsibilities, disappointments, and struggles. So it helps to be reminded that when we are awake God remains with us.
The eight comforting words in the above verse emphasize one of the greatest truths known to man – that we are not alone. Take time to memorize this verse. Then jumpstart your day and fill your waking moments with this reminder.
2. Pray for Others and Yourself
Next, pray for your loved ones, friends, and other people you have promised to pray for. Also pray for God’s guidance, wisdom, and protection over yourself as you go about your day.
3. Acknowledge Today as a Gift
Then, before leaving your bedside, repeat this inspiring Bible passage.
“This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
— Psalm 118:24
God made this precious, opportunity-filled day; He gives it to you as a gift. And, as time passes, each day becomes more precious (or at least it should).
Keep in mind: You and I are very responsive to the moods of nature. Consider how you feel if you open your eyes and it is raining, or snowing, or the sky is overcast and the wind is blowing? This can be enough to start our day off on the wrong foot.
However, we can overcome any mood of nature, or any negative mood of human nature, by filling our minds with the realization that there is this precious thing called a day.
4. Visualize and Anticipate a Great Day
As you arise, mentally picture the good day you want and expect, visualize it clearly, and strongly affirm that mental picture. Practicing such awakening techniques can change your whole approach to life and help you see the good in every day.
For many, the moment their eyes open on a new day their thoughts begin to focus on all the awful things that might happen; and that is usually what they get. Why? Because what we project in our mind as a probability, is likely to result in fact.
To change apprehension, gloomy thoughts, and depressive attitudes to anticipation, repeat Genesis 1:1 and Psalm 118:24 three times in the morning, and then say them to yourself during the day.
Let your confession and affirmation be something such as: ‘In the beginning God created the heaven and earth and today is the day that the Lord has made. No other day just like it was ever made. This is it! I will rejoice and be glad in it. Thank you, Lord, for being with me this day. It’s going to be a great day!’
5. Let Go of the Past
Did it ever occur to you that yesterday ended last night? Every morning, you face a new beginning, so put the past behind you. Take the good memories you want to remember from the past along with you; as well as the lessons you’ve learned from your mistakes. But all the other things – leave them at the door of the new day.
One reason people have nervous breakdowns and are mentally sick is because they don’t shake themselves free of the past. Let it go!
Did you make mistakes last week? I did. What are we going to do about those mistakes? Start each day adventuring with God, and let the past be past. Do the best we can today with God’s help. Anticipate a great day, and it will be.
Do yourself a favor: Start putting these five techniques into practice. Habits and negative attitudes don’t change overnight. But if you can shift from apprehension to letting the thought of anticipation surge through your mind, your life will change and you’ll almost guarantee yourself a great day every day!
May your days be great and your life full of growing prosperity!

Spiritual Prosperity – Walking Out God’s Good Plan For Your Life!
Are You Following God One Step at a Time?
walking out God’s plan for your life.
In order to do this you need to allow the Lord
to direct your path one step at a time.
If I had known many years ago
what I was going to be doing today,
I would have said, “No way, God. That is impossible.”
But keep in mind, the Lord does not show us the whole picture of our life all at once, because we would quit before we got started. Instead, God leads us one step at a time.
“In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.”
— Proverbs 3:6
Following God One Step at a Time
Have you wondered why you are not further along in the plan for your life?
Let me ask you a question: Are you following God one step at a time?
Consider how excited parents are when their children take their first steps. They start out by taking one step and falling down. The parents then pick them up and put them back on their feet; encouraging them to take another step.
Inspired by the words of encouragement, the children try again and take two or three steps this time, before falling down. The parents continue to repeatedly pick them up, encourage, and help them try again until they finally conquer the task of walking.
The fact is: An infant would never learn to walk if he did not start by taking that first step. And just as infants learn to walk by taking one step at a time, so it is with the plan of our life. God leads us one step at a time.
Maybe you have taken the first step in your plan and fallen down. You may still be lying on the ground, having decided to never take another step. However, keep in mind that just as a parent encourages their children to get up and try again, so the Heavenly Father is encouraging you to get up and take another step!
The Steps of a Good Man Are Ordered by the Lord
If you will delight in the Lord, He will order your steps; and they will be steps of success and not failure.
“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and He delights in his way.”
— Psalm 37:23
Keep in mind, when opportunity knocks, you must answer! And you must walk through that door with confidence, knowing you can do it with the help of the Lord.
Of course there will be various disappointments and difficult circumstances along the way. We all face them and that is to be expected. Just remember there is help and you are not facing anything alone.
“I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.”
— Philippians 4:13
Allow this verse to help you have confidence in your ability, knowing you are not doing anything alone, but that it is Christ who strengthens you.
I think you get the point: You can make it through every circumstance of your life – regardless of what it is – if you will simply place your hand in God’s hand. He will direct your path and lead you to victory and spiritual prosperity; one step at a time.
May you walk out God’s good plan one step at a time and experience His growing prosperity!

Christian Meditation For Mind Control – Who Is In Charge Of Your Thoughts Anyway?
Why Not Take Control of Your Thought Life?
about taking charge of our thought life.
Think about it?
Thousands of thoughts pop into
our minds daily.
Many of these thoughts are NOT our own and
come from the constant bombardment of
media ads, newspapers, the internet, other people, etcetera.
I’m sure you would agree that most of these thoughts are not healthy and desperately need managed.
The fact that our minds are constantly bombarded with unwanted garbage should be a major concern for us. Why? Because our thoughts direct our lives.
Christian Meditation for Mind Control
The Bible has much to say about the impact our minds and thoughts have on our lives. The importance of meditating on what is true, pure, and right is encouraged over and over. This is to help us stay empowered with proper mind control and right thinking. Thinking right leads to right acting.
“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”
— Proverbs 4:23
“Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.”
— Matthew 12:34
“For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”
— Proverbs 23:7
If our thoughts determine our lives, then we can change our circumstances by first changing our thoughts. How do we go about doing that? Well it does take work, but the good news is that it is quite simple.
Thought Life Check-up
The first step is to give our thought life a check-up. We need to take time to actually focus on what we are thinking.
Take note and evaluate the thoughts you have over the next few days.
- Thoughts about yourself (abilities, appearance, health, etc.)
- Thoughts about others (God, relationships, etc.)
- Thoughts about work
- Thoughts about any and all other areas of your life
As you do this check-up and evaluate your thoughts, consider which ones are healthy, positive, productive, and beneficial to your life. Ask yourself if they are going to help you move forward in a positive direction? Then decide if you will allow them to stay or give them the boot.
For example: You may have thoughts of being a financial failure and constantly failing at everything you do. Your mind may replay past events of failure and come up with many reasons why you are sure to fail in the future and always live in poverty.
What does this type of negative thinking do? It takes away all hope of being financially successful and pursuing prosperity, and on top of that it lets you think you should settle for poverty.
By acknowledging that that kind of negative thinking is only destructive, you can then choose to put a stop to it by replacing it with thoughts that will be profitable and beneficial to your life.
Mind Control for Right Thinking and Right Living
The next step, after you’ve given your thought life a check-up and determined which thoughts no longer have permission to reside in your mind, is to take charge and do some mind control clean-up.
In order to remove negative, damaging, unwanted thoughts, they need to be replaced with positive, encouraging, or productive thoughts. We can’t just tell an unwanted thought to stop and go away. We have to also replace it with a favorable thought.
For example: You tell those thoughts of financial failure to stop and you take control of your mind by replacing those destructive thoughts with prosperous thoughts. This might be something such as: My God desires above all things that I prosper and be in health, even as my soul prospers. (3 John 2)
God’s Word is full of promises of success. He wants us to be blessed to be a blessing to others. We are encouraged to meditate on thoughts that will lead us into right living and success. However, God won’t just step in our minds and clean up our thinking for us. It is something we must do; with His help.
Take Charge of Your Thoughts
Keep in mind: Your thoughts are just that, they are your thoughts and they belong to you. So why not be in charge and take control of them?
Refuse to allow your mind to focus on thoughts of negative past experiences, or current difficult challenges, or any other discouraging thoughts that fill your mind with failure. Refuse to keep your life directed toward continual disappointment.
Bottom line: As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. Decide which thoughts you want to keep, and then replace the destructive thoughts with positive ones that will lead you to success. Meditate on success scriptures from the Word of God and take charge of your thought life with Christian meditation for the ultimate mind control.
May you change your life one thought at a time and enjoy a life of growing prosperity!
God bless you –
P.S. Christian Meditation: Renew Your Mind In Him is a resource to help you get control of your thought life.
“The Path To Wealth” by TS Linscott
The Path To Wealth Book Review
by T.S. Linscott
This book was first published in 1888 with the complete title:
“The Path to Wealth; or, Light From My Forge.”
Revealed within the pages of this
valuable book you’ll find powerful,
timeless teachings regarding God’s money laws…
- A DISCUSSION OF GOD’S MONEY LAWS
- THE RELATION BETWEEN GIVING AND GETTING
- CASH AND CHRISTIANITY
The teachings in this book are provided in a series of ‘talks’ that take place in a blacksmith shop over 100 years ago. The discussions include important insights into monetary principles from God’s Word; which continue to reveal to us today How to Acquire Wealth and Have Financial Success!
In this wealth and financial success book, author T.S. Linscott, shares the dynamic tithing truths that have helped thousands of others discover the ‘secret’ of supernatural growing prosperity.
The following is an excerpt from pages 80-81 of “The Path To Wealth”:
“A good deal of our preaching, our thinking, and even our devotions, either vaporize or spiritualize God’s promises. Our natural unbelief tends to put off the fulfillment of them until we get to heaven or sometime in the future. Unbelief hates literal and present tense promises. But these promises are literal and material; they are for here and now; they are to be enjoyed on earth; they challenge us to a contract or bargain with God.
As stated before, He promises money for money; you pay me a tenth, says God, and I will give you earthly and material blessings. I will give your fingers skill as mechanics; I will incline employers toward you; you shall get the highest wages; strikes shall not affect you; I am with you, and will see that you are provided for.
I will make you prosperous as businessmen; I will incline you where you can make good bargains; I will send the people around to you to buy; while the man next door, who neglects My cause may become bankrupt, this curse shall not touch you. I will look out for your bills when they are coming due; I will see that your bank account is sufficiently large; in a word, I am your partner and will look out for the interests of your business.
And to you thinkers, who earn your living by your brains, I will make your thoughts clear; I will give you the holy impulse to originate ‘thoughts which breathe, and words which burn;’ your productions shall stir men’s hearts; your works shall be in demand; I will make people buy the productions of your heart and brain; only pay me your tenth, and you shall be cared for.
Seed time and harvest shall never fail you farmers; I will bless your crop; I will multiply your stock; the blight and the mildew shall be kept from your farms; remember, I am the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; I will do to you as I did to them, only remember me as they did.
I will give health to all of you; death shall not take away your little ones; they shall live to a ripe old age; I will open the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
These are the blessings promised by God in the Bible. Who among this company will this day pledge his tenth to God?” (end of excerpt)
“Are You Tired of Going in Circles Where Your Finances are Concerned?”
In days of economic uncertainty, it is important for everyone to get a working knowledge of truth to prosper.
You can prosper by using God’s spiritual principles in your finances!
The source of all financial abundance is God and with Him there are no limits. Trouble is, too many people are slow to learn the principles that will cause them to excel financially.
Get your thinking clear on how to work them and you’ll no longer use words like recession, poverty, and lack.
In order to receive financial abundance from God, we must do our part. If we do our part, He’ll do His part and meet our needs according to His riches in glory.
Most people don’t like to hear about tithing and it puts them in fear. But you’ll have no problem tithing if you see God as your source of supply.
The tithe is seed money of wealth and is compared to sowing. The more a person gives, the more that person receives. Financial prosperity is one benefit of tithing. It puts us in partnership with God.
We are told to bring the tithes into God’s house and then test Him and see if He does not open the windows of heaven and pour out such a blessing on us that we don’t have room enough to contain it! (Malachi 3:10)
Tithing is a step of obedience and trust that God will take care of our finances. God promises to pour out a blessing to the tither.
I truly believe tithing is a key to living a godly, successful, and prosperous Christian life.
“The Path to Wealth” book has been republished and is now easily available in an affordable print version.
In it many of the common questions people have about tithing are addressed and answered, such as:
- Is Tithing Still For Us Today?
- Who Should Tithe?
- Is a Person In Debt Obligated to Tithe?
- If God is the Source of All Supply, Why Does He Need My Money?
- Where Should the Tithe Be Given?
- How is the Tithe Calculated?
In “The Path to Wealth”, Linscott also points out many of the biblical advantages of tithing.
God put it on my heart almost two years ago to republish this book, and it is my earnest wish and prayer, just as it was of the original author, that this book may be productive of good, and lead many a person to ‘bring all the tithes into the storehouse’ in response to the demand of God.
“Where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.”
— Luke 12:34
