A Majestic God – Psalm 8 Christian Meditation Video
A great video reminder by bluefishtv of how majestic our Lord is!
“O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth!
who have set your glory above the heavens.
Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings have you ordained strength
because of your enemies, that you might still the enemy and the avenger.
When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars, which you have ordained;
What is man, that you are mindful of him?
and the son of man that you visit him?
For you have made him a little lower than the angels,
and have crowned him with glory and honor.
You made him to have domininion over the works of your hands;
you have put all things under his feet:
All sheep and oxen, yes, and the beasts of the field;
The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever
passes through the paths of the seas.
O LORD our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth!”
— Psalm 8
God bless you,
Abundant Prosperity – Wisdom and Focus is Your 2 Ticket Winning Combination for Success
The Power of Increased Wisdom and Focus for Growing Prosperity!
wisdom and focus.
What areas of your life do you find yourself –
overwhelmed, troubled, and not prospering in at this time?
Well, why not take a look at the –
winning combination of wisdom and focus…
and find out how it can turn that troubled area into success?
Wisdom to Prosper
Obviously, when it comes to dealing successfully with the trials and storms of life that blow through, the wisdom of God is a very powerful commodity. The book of Proverbs shows us over and over that wisdom brings the knowledge of what to do in situations, and it results in a prosperous, successful, and long life.
“If anyone lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, that gives to all men liberally, and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavers is like a wave of the sea, driven with the wind and tossed.” — James 1:5-6
Single Minded Focus to Prosper
When trouble comes, we usually encounter a lack of wisdom. And this tends to be on top of an unstable mind, which is of course also lacking the single minded focus needed to prosper. A double minded person is moved in whichever direction the winds of adversity blow.
“For let not that man think he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” — James 1:7-8
Wisdom, Focus, and Asking in Faith
So how do we get the wisdom needed to attract abundant prosperity and success? By asking God in faith; and confidently trusting Him to give the wisdom He said He would give when we ask.
This should come as no surprise, since everything in the believer’s life comes back to faith.
How do we ask in faith? It is not difficult! Simply ask God according to His Word.
Sample prayer for wisdom and provision:
“Lord, Your Word says in James 1, that if anyone lacks wisdom they are to ask of You, and You will give it liberally. Lord, I ask in faith right now for Your wisdom in this matter. I believe I receive what I’ve asked for according to Your Word. Philippians 4:19 says that You shall supply all my needs according to Your riches in glory by Christ Jesus. And in Colossians 2:2-3, You said that in Jesus are hid all treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Therefore, I have wisdom and all my needs are taken care of. I know that You have heard me, and I know I have the petition that I have asked. I thank You for these things. In Jesus name. Amen.”
Now we move forward in confidence, knowing and acting as if we have received. We stay mentally fixed, focused, and immovable that God’s Word will come to pass and manifest in our lives. That is asking in faith.
On the other hand, if someone asks timidly and full of doubt, they are like a wave being moved in whichever way the wind blows and never receiving anything. The wavering believer says, “I am healed. No, I think I’m sick. Yes, I’m healed. Wait, I think I feel sick.” The double minded believer is not going to receive anything.
Bottom line: Wisdom is required to live an abundant, prosperous life. And God is just waiting to provide that wisdom to those who ask Him for it by faith. Overcome unbelief and doubt by keeping a fixed, single minded focus on the request made in faith according to the Word of God. Let wisdom and focus be your winning combination for success and abundant prosperity.
May your increased wisdom and focus be followed by the abundance of God and a life of growing prosperity!

Happy Earth Day 2010
Thanking God for His Beautiful Creation of Planet Earth!
“Creation and Man“,
Chuck Colson says…
“…No doubt you’ll be seeing plenty of news coverage about rallies, marches, and activities associated with this major environmental commemoration…
Saving resources and money, ensuring our human habitat is clean and healthy, this is the stuff of good stewardship and common sense-things that especially we Christians should be known for. I say this knowing I’m going to get letters from concerned listeners…
After all, Christians are rightly concerned that extremists have turned Earth Day into ‘Worship-Earth Day’…
Our faith, our Christian worldview, tells us that the earth is good precisely because God created it and declared it good. It is worthy of our care, and indeed, we were commanded to tend it. Wasteful and immoderate use of natural resources is not a Christian virtue.
We must also realize that creation care begins with the care of the crown of creation: man, alone among living things, created in the image of God. In creating a clean sustainable environment, we do so primarily for humanity’s benefit…
Celebrate that God has created such a beautiful planet, populated by humans created in His own image, and that He has called us to tend His creation as His stewards.”
You can read the complete article “Creation and Man” by Chuck Colson at ChristianPost.com
Today is a great day to give thanks to God for His beautiful creation.
“The earth is the LORD’s, and the fullness thereof;
the world, and they that dwell therein.
For He has founded it upon the seas,
and established it upon the waters.
Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD
Or who shall stand in His holy place?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol,
Nor sworn deceitfully.
He shall receive the blessing from the LORD,
And righteousness from the God of his salvation.
This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him,
Who seek Your face.”
— Psalm 24:1-6
Happy Earth Day!
Have you thanked God yet today for all His blessings?

Growing Prosperity – 3 Insights Of What You See By Faith Is What You Get In Abundance!
Seeing Through the Eyes of Faith
If you have subscribed to the saying:
“I’ll believe it when I see it”…
then you are probably still waiting around for abundance to be physically manifest in your life.
The fact is: If you only believe the things that you can physically see and touch, then unfortunately you are lacking the faith needed to create a life of growing prosperity.
3 Insights of ‘What You See By Faith Is What You Get In Abundance’:
1. Real Vision to Prosper Through the Eyes of Faith
Looking back through time, we see that the prosperous individuals of real ‘vision’ subscribe to the overriding principle of “What you see by faith is what you get.”
What is the powerful difference here? These people understand that the images in their minds actually precede the images of the physically manifested objects.
Men and women of vision expect the images in their minds to come to pass in the physical world. Regardless of critics speaking contrary to their vision, they have faith in what is initially only visible in their mind’s eye.
“Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
— Hebrews 11:1
2. Prospering as Your Mind Prospers
The mind is a magnificent thing and allows us the creative power of thought. Understand that images are mental pictures made from our thoughts and we can choose to create whatever images we desire. We are the directors of our own life movie.
Our soul (mind) must embrace prosperity first. We must have the will and desire to prosper.
“Beloved, I wish above all things that you might prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.”
— 3 John 2
Remember that we are a spirit; we have a soul (mind, will, and emotions), and live in a body. Our soul is the link that connects our spirit with our physical body. Our soul is our conscious mind that guides and directs our physical actions.
A prosperous soul will produce a prosperous image inside of us. If our soul is not prospering, we will have a bad image of failure, lack, defeat, or sickness.
Become aware of the truth that everything we do is preceded by an image. First we think and form an image; then we do the work that will see the image expressed in our material world.
3. Vision That Inspires Prosperous Action
As we program our mind with positive, prosperous images, it eventually inspires us to also speak and confess these things by faith. The power of confession helps deposit the beliefs into our subconscious (heart).
“As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”
— Proverbs 23:7
We become the image and beliefs we allow in our heart. Our subconscious (often referred to as our heart) acts on what it has been programmed, and goes to work to make it a reality. Why not program your heart and mind with powerful, prosperous images from the Word of God and let that become a reality in your life?
Bottom line: We control our innermost thoughts, and the images we allow are what we attract. The prosperous images we see in our mind are what we will ultimately get in our life.
May you catch a vision of the abundance of God and create a life of growing prosperity!

Meditation Results – What Are the 3 Most Effective Christian Meditation Techniques?
Christian Meditation Techniques that Get Results!
Meditation can take on many forms and techniques.
This means there is no excuse not to…
meditate on God’s Word.
The following three keys will help you find the most effective Christian meditation techniques:
A Method of Meditation that Fits You
Remember there are many different ways and techniques to meditate God’s Word. Pondering, thinking deeply, affirming, contemplating, musing, and reflecting are some of the options. Speculating, memorizing, confessing, praying, reciting, singing, speaking, and focused study are also techniques that can be used to meditate on the Word of God.
To make our meditation time effective. In order to do that, we should start with a method that fits our personality. This will provide the best results in the short-term and long-term.
So, let’s say for example, you are someone who likes to read; then get alone and put your face in the Bible. Dig in and read, study, and take notes.
Or for example, if you are someone who learns best with audio; then listen to the Bible or scripture affirmations on CD. Or record your own.
There are so many resources and tools at our disposal today, including free and paid, that believers are truly without excuse when it comes to daily meditation. There are Christian meditation books, CDs, podcasts, etcetera.
Confess With Your Mouth
Regardless of the techniques chosen, it is EXTREMELY important to speak the Word of God out loud. We need to hear our self speaking and confessing Bible truths. This is how we get them planted into our heart and soul.
Hearing our self speak divine, scriptural truths is empowering to our spirit, mind, and body.
It also builds our faith. Faith increases when we hear others speak the Word of God, but it is even more effective when it is the confession of our own mouth.
“Faith comes by hearing, and hearing the Word of God.”
— Romans 10:17
The Power of Repetition
The final key point to make here about effective meditation techniques is repetition, repetition, repetition.
Look again at the above quote from Romans. Notice it does not say faith comes by hearing one time. It tells us we need to hear the Word of God over and over to build our faith.
No doubt about it: It is with daily confession and repetition that we unleash the power of the living Word of God in our lives. When the negative lies of the world are squeezed out, our lives will be transformed as we begin to speak the truths of God’s Word from the abundance of our heart!
Let me ask you this: What is stopping you from putting the power of Christian meditation to work in your life?
