Abundance: Living in All the Fullness God has Provided Video

Abundance: Living in All the Fullness God has Provided

What is Abundance?  I believe it is living in all the fullness God has provided in His Word!

“How excellent is your lovingkindness, O God!
therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Your wings.
They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of Your house;
and You shall make them drink of the river of your pleasures.
For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light shall we see light.
O continue Your lovingkindness unto them that know you;
and Your righteousness to the upright in heart.”
Psalm 36:7-10

Abundance comes from God –

So take time daily to meditate on His Word and find out what He has provided …

May you continue to experience a life of growing prosperity and abundance!

Be blessed to be a blessing!

God bless you,

Self-Esteem – Acknowledge Your Abilities to Boost Your Self Image!

Self-Esteem – Acknowledge Your Abilities to Boost Your Self Image

Time to Take Personal Inventory of Your Talents & Abilities and Boost Your Self-Image!

Boost Your Self Esteem and ImageSelf-esteem, regardless of how high or how low, is a powerful driving force in your life. It can hold you back and prevent you from being all that God intends you to be, or it can boldly drive you to a life of success. 

Which just goes to show; you should give great importance to building up your confidence and self-esteem.

One way to do this is to acknowledge your strengths & abilities. Take inventory of what you are good at. We’ve all been given special gifts and talents. Some are more obvious than others.

Those hidden abilities may be discovered by asking ourselves what it is we are passionate about. What is it we desire to do and explore in life? What have we always wanted to do but keep putting off? Maybe learn to play an instrument, write a book, or paint.

“Most of us die with the great secret, with the sealed message which the Creator put in our hands at birth, still unread, because we have never learned how to open or how to read it.”
– Orison Swett Marden

As you acknowledge those things you are personally good at in life, you direct your focus on your positive qualities. Most of us waste way too much time taking inventory of our inabilities. Spend some time acknowledging the gifts and talents you have to offer this world.

We can’t excel in everything, but we can excel in some things. Start cultivating those abilities and talents you are passionate about. You’ll be empowered and see your self-esteem increase as you find ways to build on your strengths.

The simple fact of the matter is; once you discover and tap into your untapped assets, you’ll be able to provide an incalculable service to humanity. You will think more highly of yourself, and you will have more respect and self-confidence in your abilities. You will believe more in yourself. You will stand higher in your own estimate in every way and boost your self-esteem.

May you cultivate your God given talents and experience a life of growing prosperity!

Soar higher,

God Given Empowerment – Use it to Get Your Focus on Once and for All!

God Given Empowerment – Use it to Get Your Focus on Once and for All!

Discover How to Get Your Life’s Vision in Focus with God’s Help

God Empowerment for FocusEmpowerment starts with you,

but comes from God …

What is your level of empowerment?

Is your life’s vision currently in focus?

Or do you run around day to day feeling very busy, …

yet lost and going nowhere?

Get empowered starting today. Wait on the Lord. Then write the vision down and make it plain so that you can run with it. (Habakkuk 2)

Focus on the Vision of Your Desired Life

What are you passionate about? Where do you see yourself in the future? Seek God for guidance on this. We are told to acknowledge Him in all our ways and He will direct our paths. (Proverbs 3:6) God knows the plans He has for us, plans to prosper, so call on Him and seek His help.

Make a Plan of Action

If your goals and visions do not clash or go counter to the Word of God, then make a plan. Come up with steps you can take to make your vision a reality and write them down. Read them and speak them aloud daily and begin at least taking baby steps.

Next week is going to come whether you do something different or don’t do something different. Real deep thought, huh?  NOT, but it needs to be said and you need to hear it.

Wake Up – Life is Happening

It is up to you to change your direction. If you want something different, if you have a vision or even a partial vision, take time to zoom in on it and get it in focus.

This is your life and you only have ONE SHOT – don’t waste it!  Do something meaningful with it. If not for you, then for others, but ultimately for God. God did not create you and put you here in this age for nothing. You have a purpose and a part to play just like we all do.

Everyone is valuable and it is vital to society that you function the best you can in your God given abilities. My pastor often references the body of Christ to our human body. It does not matter if you are an ear drum, an eye, a big toe, or a heart. Every part is important and vital to the whole body in its purpose for all things to function at its best.

Life is a Journey and a Growing Process

Don’t be afraid to mess up. Remember all things work together for good to those who love the Lord. (Romans 8:28) Continue to pray and seek God daily for guidance to adjust and direct your steps on the way. Taking baby steps will empower you greatly and soon you’ll be an off and running success.

The simple fact of the matter is this: Tomorrow, next month, and next year is going to come even if you don’t change a thing. But I wonder? What if you purpose to change a few things and get God working with you? What might your next week, next month, or next year look like?

Why not get busy and find out?  What are you still doing here?!  Go now, and start making things happen in life by tapping into your God given empowerment.

May you continue to experience a life of growing prosperity!

God bless you,

How Do You Open the Door to Get Abundant Wealth?

How Do You Open the Door to Get Abundant Wealth?

Discover the Keys to Open the Door to a Prosperous Life! 

 Open Door to AbundanceAbundant wealth doesn’t have to be a dream . . .

It can be your reality.

A strong desire, backed up by faith,

has the power to . . .

open the door to an abundant life of prosperity.

 First Things First

We first need to seek the Source of all supply. We need the power of God to gain wealth and riches. Trying to gain it on your own will only bring limited success. Working with God is working under a supernatural law and obviously much more effective than just working under natural law alone.

Why seek God as your source?

  • He is the one who gives you the power to get wealth. (Deuteronomy 8:18)
  • God is also the one who will give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:4)
  • Riches and wealth are a gift from God. (Ecclesiastes 5:19)
  • Those that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing. (Psalm 34:10)

A Desire for Wealth

Do you have a will to gain wealth? When desire is in you it is a powerful force. If you desire wealth you will have an image of it in your mind. You give life to that image when you speak about it and back it up with faith.

When the desire comes from God’s Word, it is truly a tree of life. Then you will have supernatural help to reveal directions in reaching your desire. Your tree will grow roots that tap into the unlimited stream of abundance.

Just remember, you cannot serve both God and riches. But you can serve God and have riches. It is okay to have money as long as money doesn’t have you. Be blessed to be a blessing. If you seek God first, you will know His will and He will give you the desires of your heart and open the door to abundant wealth.

May you continue to experience a life of growing prosperity!

Be blessed to be a blessing,

Self-Esteem – How Do You Celebrate Your Victories and Boost Your Confidence?

Self-Esteem – How Do You Celebrate Your Victories and Boost Your Confidence?

Celebrate the Small Daily Victories to Help Boost Your Self-Esteem!

Self-esteem and the self-image we carry of ourselves plays an important part in the success of our lives.

Do you shrink back from attempting things in life because of lack of faith in yourself.  Do you avoid doing those things that will draw attention to you? If so, how can you truly be the success you are capable of?

Learn to celebrate you and the small victories in your life.

Celebrate the Living God in Your Life!We all have the same amount of hours in a day and no one can repeat yesterday. So learn to celebrate the little victories today . . .  

Did you complete that project on time?  Did you maintain your composure when you got cut-off in traffic?  Did you make it to your appointment on time?  Did you use loving words with your spouse instead of the nasty ones that wanted to come out?  Did you speak up and contribute your opinion in the meeting?  Did you tackle that dreaded cleaning project and complete it?  Did you make a good impression in the job interview?  Did you skip that second piece of desert?

Whatever your small victories may be, they are yours and you should celebrate them!

They acknowledge that you are making progress and it helps lift your confidence. Sure, go ahead and celebrate the graduation, the marriage, the baby, the promotion, the new house, and all the other significant milestones in your life. Just remember, it is those small personal victories, that sometimes only you know, that when acknowledged will boost your self-esteem.  8)

As your confidence gets boosted with your success at the little things, you’ll be amazed at the ease with which you are able to have success with the larger things.

The truth is; you should give great importance to building up your confidence and self-esteem. A lack of confidence in yourself is a poor reflection on the Creator who pronounced everything He made as good. As a child of God you should be victory minded. Lack of faith in yourself is nothing but lack of faith in Him.

Start the ball rolling. Celebrate your small victories in life daily! Increase your confidence and encourage yourself to continue moving onto greater victories. Face life with a self-respecting, confident attitude and a hopeful outlook knowing you are a child of God. Celebrate you, your personal victories and boost your self-esteem.

May your confidence increase and your life abound with growing prosperity!

Cheers to a victorious life,

P.S. And thanks be to God, who always causes us to triumph in Christ, and makes manifest the sweet savor of His knowledge by us in every place… (2 Cor. 2:14)

Abundant Living – Top 10 Reasons Why a Partnership with God is Critical!

Abundant Living – Top 10 Reasons Why a Partnership with God is Critical!

Partner with God and Discover How to Manifest the Abundant Life

Partnership with God in Abundant LoveAbundant living is possible. Is your life currently a far cry from abundance? Are you experiencing unemployment, job loss, debt, sickness, anxiety, marriage troubles, depression, and similar hardships, and ready to through in the towel?

Hear this: Do NOT quit!

Regardless of your situation, there is One who has the ability to move you from the painful pit of poverty and despair to the highest mountain top of prosperous living.

Living a full prosperous life in spirit, mind, and body requires partnership with God, the creator and source of all.  Life takes on a whole new meaning and a higher power when we live in constant realization of our at-one-ment with our Creator, our partnership with the loving, good God. 

Top 10 Reasons Why Your Partnership with God is Critical for Living the Abundant Life:

1) STRENGTH – The nearer you are to God the greater your strength. They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. (Isaiah 40:31)

2) POWER to CREATE and INVENT – A closer relationship and consciousness with God, provides more power to create and invent because you draw upon the limitless resources of an unlimited God.  His power works through us to glorify His name. (Romans 9:17)

3) WISDOM – Your partnership, with the God of infinite wisdom, allows you to tap into His wisdom. He says if we lack wisdom to ask and He will give it to us generously. (James 1:5)

4) HOPE – Realization of your divine partnership with God will enlarge your life and multiply your effectiveness with hope in Him. It will take away feelings of hopelessness, uncertainty and inability to overcome the storms of life.  God’s plans are to give us hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)

5) NO FEAR – When you take God into full, complete partnership, you will not fear. Your life’s ventures cannot end in disappointment. With God we are led into abundant pastures, beside still waters, and He says we will fear no evil. (Psalm 23)

6) MIRACLES – As God’s partner, He is able to perform miracles through us. Every great artist, writer, inventor, or healer that has done a miraculous thing, is conscious of the greater divine source of God working through them.  God can make your tongue as the pen of a skilled writer. (Psalm 45:1)

7) SUCCESS & HAPPINESS – To have real success requires taking God into partnership and lining up your purpose and ambitions with His will. When your career and life does not run counter to God’s plan, but is in tune and contributes and benefits society, your cooperation will bring true happiness and success. In Him we live and move and have our being.  (Acts 17:28)

8 ) HONESTY – Taking God into partnership means that you must not only be honest, but that you must be robustly honest. You cannot lie, cheat, steal, or take advantage of anyone. It is impossible for God to lie. (Hebrews 6:18)

9) LOVE – Partnership with God requires walking in love and loving Him. God is a god of love and what is life without love? God tells us to do all things in love and that love never fails. We are told that all things work together for good to those who love the Lord. (Romans 8:28) 

10) PEACE – When you take God into partnership, and you are conscious of doing His work, you have a life of peace and security. With God’s great light in your life you can feel safe and reassured that you will not lose your way.  We are told the Lord will bless his people with peace. (Psalm 29:11)

I could go on and on. The fact is, with God as your partner you will have a new zest in life to attain the higher things that are worthwhile and of eternal value. Working in harmony with God allows you to inherit the best from the King of kings and enjoy a prosperous and abundant life.

May your partnership with God increase your growing prosperity!

Be blessed to be a blessing,

Are You Tuned Into the Prosperity Channel?

Are You Tuned Into the Prosperity Channel?

How to Enjoy a Prosperous Life by Tuning Into the Right Channel!

Prosperity requires being tuned into the right thought channel. What we choose to tune into, watch, listen, and absorb, is what we can expect to see in our lives.

What’s Wrong With This Picture?

If you want to find out what the weather forecast is, you tune into the weather channel. You don’t watch the cartoon channel expecting to get the weather forecast.

Okay, so let me ask you, why do you tune into the poverty channel on a daily basis expecting prosperity? Watching the poverty channel is only going to bring you more poverty. 

Don’t you think today is a good day to quit flipping channels and make a choice to only watch the prosperity channel in your mind and heart? We know that we are what we think in our heart (Prov. 23:7). So tune your thoughts and heart into what you want to become and manifest.

To get results you must only allow your heart and mind to play success movies. Your thoughts should continually be replaying the movie of your desired life. Take the time daily to watch it in high definition with full clarity and surround sound effects. Put yourself fully in that movie until it begins to feel real.

A Sneak Preview of Your Life Ahead

The God Channel is the Success ChannelThe prosperity and abundance conscious movie must be created to order as desired. This specifically created movie that you consistently play in your mind will soon become your reality. If you don’t purpose to tune into a channel of success, then you’ll be stuck watching the default poverty channel. And poverty is attracted to the one whose mind is focused on it, just as wealth, abundance, and success is attracted to the one whose mind has deliberately prepared to attract it, by tuning into the correct channel.

Your subconscious mind works continuously while you are awake and asleep. It works on attracting the movies you’ve been watching and the channels you’ve tuned into. If you don’t want to keep manifesting a life from some bad re-runs, then TURN the CHANNEL!

The Big Picture

We know from the Word of God that our God has a good plan for us. He desires His children to prosper and that when we give, it is given back to us abundantly. So for the ultimate success in life, never turn off the God channel. Always keep God tuned in. 🙂

May you purpose to tune into the right channel in life and experience growing prosperity!

Be blessed to be a blessing,
