Word of God
“You Are My Shield”
“You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in Your Word.” — Psalm 119:114 NIV
“I hate double-minded people,
but I love your law.
You are my refuge and my shield;
I have put my hope in your word.
Away from me, you evildoers,
that I may keep the commands of my God!
Sustain me, my God, according to your promise, and I will live;
do not let my hopes be dashed.
Uphold me, and I will be delivered;
I will always have regard for your decrees.
You reject all who stray from your decrees,
for their delusions come to nothing.
All the wicked of the earth you discard like dross;
therefore I love your statutes.
My flesh trembles in fear of you;
I stand in awe of your laws.”
— Psalm 119:113-120

Growing Prosperity – The Power of Believing and Receiving Manifests Abundance!
Dare to Believe and Activate Your Faith
this is true to a great degree.
Because we must first believe in something
if we want to receive and manifest
the abundance of it into our lives.
“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
— Mark 11:24
BELIEVING AND RECEIVING
When we believe, we accept the truth, existence, reliability, or value of something; we also put our confidence, faith, and trust in that thing.
Receiving is very similar in its definition. When we receive, we grab or take hold of something (physically or mentally); we take it into the mind and accept it as true.
So whether you are believing or receiving, you are taking hold of and accepting something. Believing something in the spiritual realm is receiving it into the heart. If we need a physical manifestation, it will come after we believe.
“If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
— Jesus Christ, Mark 9:23
The world tells us to believe it when we see it. However, when we operate by God’s principles, we must learn to believe first, and then we will manifest in the natural what we have already believed and received in our heart.
POWER TO MANIFEST ABUNDANCE
Faith is a noun; it is the evidence of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1) Believe is the verb form of faith, so believing is faith in action. Faith holds a powerful force just waiting to be used.
Believing is the process of receiving and manifesting the reality of our hopes into our lives. Believing also requires actions that reflect what we believe. For Christians, faith in action is believing and obeying the Word of God. Christians are called believers for a reason – they believe.
Faith is God’s reality, and believing is putting action to that reality and tapping into the abundance of God.
If, for example, we have faith in God’s promise to prosper the works of our hands (Deuteronomy 28: 1,8) then we believe that promise is already ours and we act accordingly…
We hold fast the vision of prosperity in our heart and receive it in the natural by acting according to God’s principles of prosperity. We do not go around saying “I’m always broke, I’ll never get ahead so there’s no use trying.” Instead, we get our thoughts, words, and actions in line with God’s, because believing makes the power of God a reality in our lives.
Jesus asks us in John 11:40, “Did I not tell you and promise you that if you would believe and rely on Me, you would see the glory of God?”
If we choose to believe it is possible, God’s glory can be manifested in us and on us. But we must have faith in God. (Mark 11:22)
Why let your faith go to waste? God is searching for those who will believe and receive. Why not start expecting more of His glory in your life? God is waiting to manifest His glory to you and through you. His desire is that you be blessed to be a blessing. And there is no greater abundance to manifest and share than the abundance of God!
May your faith grow strong as you believe and receive an abundant life of growing prosperity!

How Can Christian Meditation and Positive Biblical Affirmations Adjust My Attitude?
Get a Spirit Lift for a Brighter Outlook on Life!
allow the Spirit of God to stir us up
and make us happy.
There is power in God’s Word to
renew our mind and replace negative
thoughts with positive life filled thoughts.
If we find ourselves dwelling on the same discouraging,
depressing, stressful, worrisome thoughts, then we need to put a stop to it.
How? By replacing negative thoughts with truths from the Word of God.
Replace Negative Thoughts with Positive Truths
You see, meditation on scripture gives us understanding of how God sees us and our future. In His scriptures we find words of hope, joy, peace, and encouragement.
“My meditation of Him shall be sweet and I will be glad in the Lord.”
— Psalm 104:34
We can help make the truths of God’s Word become a part of our mental dialogue by listening to Christian Meditation CDs or Biblical Affirmation CDs during our morning routine, at the office, in the car, while doing chores, and when falling asleep. Then when negative thoughts try to surface, our mind will be prepared and ready to affirm God’s Word instead.
The great thing about affirmations is that it is like planting positive seeds of change. Our minds are able to focus on the new positive thoughts, which will eventually grow to replace the old negative ones.
Biblical affirmations are scriptures that are stated in a positive, first person, present tense form. It is important to make them positive, because the things we hear repeatedly get deposited into our subconscious. And our subconscious takes in everything as if it is real.
Biblical Affirmation Example
Let’s look at an example of a positive biblical affirmation…
Have you ever had a time of struggling with fear? Well, we know that God says, He has not given us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7) The truth of God’s Word is that fear is not of Him. What is of God is power, love and a sound mind.
In this example we would not want to affirm ‘I am not afraid’, or ‘I do not fear’. Why? Because our subconscious is going to hear us confessing fear.
So what should the affirmation be? Make the affirmation: ‘God has given me a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind.’
Begin now to fill your mind with this affirmation and your fears will begin to fade. The instant you become fearful, start confessing this affirmation and put a stop to the fearful thoughts instantly.
The success in using affirmations is repetition and speaking them out loud. You must listen to or read affirmations over and over until they begin to take root and grow.
So there you have it: Make Christian meditation and biblical affirmations a daily habit. Maintain a positive attitude and a bright outlook on life with the life transforming power of God’s Word. It is His desire that all believers tap into it as they grow nearer to Him.
Why not begin meditating and affirming the powerful Word of God in your life today?
God bless you always,
Healing Affirmations: Powerful Biblical Words of Health and Life!
The Power of Biblical Healing Affirmations
powerful effect in a person’s life.
Unfortunately, when a person is suffering…
and in pain, mentally or physically,
their mind is primarily focused on
their current negative condition…
this in turn leads to speaking and reaffirming the same unhealthy condition.
You Choose Your Affirmations
The words that we think and speak have a powerful effect on our lives, positive or negative. The key to living a healthier, happier life is choosing to affirm the positive and healthy affirmations.
Important! Paying attention to the daily, seemingly insignificant thoughts and words is the first line of defense. Any negative affirmations need to be replaced as quickly as possible. If not, the the battle to overcome simply becomes greater.
Consider the following thoughts and affirmations:
- My head hurts. I hope I’m not getting a cold.
- My stomach aches. I think I’m getting the flu.
- I feel warm. I must have a fever and I’m sure I’m getting sick.
- I’m always sick lately.
- I catch every illness that comes around.
- I just can’t seem to get better.
Do any of the above statements sound familiar? If these are the regular affirmations you think and confess, how do you suppose it affects your health?
Powerful Biblical Healing Affirmations
Healing affirmations and confessions based on the Word of God develop a powerful healthy attitude in life; which is an essential element in good health. In fact, by using biblical affirmations you’ll tap into a “hidden power” that can supercharge your life.
“He sent His Word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.”
— Psalm 107:20
Start quoting scriptures to yourself earnestly and fiercely. Tell your body to line up with the Word of God. Confessing biblical healing affirmations is something we can do in the natural, but at the same time we are fighting off sickness and disease in the spiritual realm.
The following biblical healing affirmations will help you get started:
- My God is the Lord that heals me. (Exodus 15:26)
- I bless the Lord with all my soul and remember His benefits, which includes healing my diseases. (Psalm 103:2-3)
- I am wise and speak health. (Proverbs 12:18)
- I am washed by the Spirit of God. (1 Corinthians 6:11)
- I have a sound heart, and a mind at peace, and they are life and health to my body. (Proverbs 14:30)
Search the Word of God and find more of His healing benefits and begin to use them as your own healing affirmations.
Imagine waking up each morning bursting with energy and joy for the new day. Chances are, you have “tried” positive affirmations, but haven’t yet developed a positive, healthy mindset. Choose to renew your mind to the Word of God and change your thoughts into His life-transforming thoughts of health and life.
May you keep sickness away with powerful, biblical affirmations of health and life and experience days of growing prosperity!
God bless you always,
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,
Abundant Attitude – Think Like a Prosperous Winner and Stop Whining!
Think Abundance – Attract Abundance
The abundance of God is a never ending supply and flow.
In order to see and tap into this supply requires
an abundant attitude.
God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all
that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. (Ephesians 3:20)
A Prosperous Winner or a Poor Whiner?
There is so much whining and complaining going on these days. I’m sure today alone you’ve heard someone complain about school, family, friends, work, the boss, lack of money, traffic, waiting in line, and more.
What happened to a little gratitude and appreciation? Where is the thankfulness for all the abundant blessing in our lives?
For those whining about their boss and job, there are many who would be more than thankful to have a job with even the worst boss. For all those complainers, there are many people in worse situations that would gladly trade places with them.
Choose not to worry, whine, and complain about life’s challenging circumstances. They only thing whining will accomplish is to attract more of the negative things you are whining about.
Put on an Abundant Attitude and Think Prosperous
The Word of God has the power to cause us to prosper, but we have to put it to work in our lives by meditating on it, speaking it, and doing it.
“As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”
— Proverbs 23:7
Keep your life in perspective and have an abundant attitude by giving God thanks for all that is going well and all you are blessed with. Think and focus on the positive and attract a greater flow of the abundance of God in your life.
When God’s Word and His principles are first place in our lives, our attitudes and thoughts will begin to line up with His, and we’ll act accordingly.
“Then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”
— Joshua 1:8
Speak and confess success and the abundance of God flowing in your life. The power of His Word at work in our hearts will cause us to have thankful, grateful hearts; able to see the blessings all around us.
Is the abundance of God flowing in your life? God has created a system that will produce abundance in our lives. Blessings will come to those who operate in it; even when others experience lack. Choose to think prosperous and put on an abundant attitude!
May you have an abundant attitude and a life flowing with growing prosperity!
