Spiritual Prosperity – Living in Victory!
Successful Living – Discover a Crucial Step in Getting from Problem to Solution!
Walk in Obedience and Live Victorious and Successful
and there is no getting around that fact.
We have to always be willing to do
our part as problems arise.
God wants us to live victorious and successful
and He has a wonderful answer to any problem
that shows up in our lives.
But let me remind you: We have to do our part to get from our problem to that solution.
The Supernatural Quick Fix
Who doesn’t want an instant, push-button, quick fix these days? As soon as a person has a problem in today’s society, they seem to expect someone else to provide an instant solution.
They want the pastor or church leaders to personally pray over them and hope for an easy “supernatural quick fix.” They want a person or organization to bail them out of their trouble. They expect God to do a miracle, and do it now!
Of course, turning to your pastor and church leaders for prayer and expecting a miracle from God, in time of need is a good thing.
However, the issue that comes into play with this plan of action, is when there is a refusal to walk in daily, simple obedience to God’s Word, and the guidance He provides us through our pastors and church ministers.
The Crucial Step of Obedience
Life is full of challenges and problems for all of us. Big and small they come and go on a daily basis and the best way to live successful is to live by faith, in obedience to God’s Word.
God has left us a great instruction book, the Bible, to help us live in victory. God expects His children to pray and seek Him and His Word for answers on a daily basis. And we are not to only listen and hear instruction, but we are to also be obedient to take action on what we hear.
Those who hear the Word of God and are obedient to also act on what they’ve heard, are the ones who build a strong, solid foundation and the storms of life do not shake them.
“Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings, and does them…is like a man which built a house, and dug deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.”
— Luke 6:47-48
Walk in Obedience and Walk in Blessings
Obedience to God’s Word never goes unrewarded. Walk in obedience and you’ll walk in blessings.
God gives us His Word, along with pastors and ministers who act according to His Word. They help instruct us in the Word and teach us how to apply it in our lives. Our part is to be obedient to act on the Word of the Lord by faith, no matter how insignificant it may seem.
“Why do you call Me Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?”
— Luke 6:46
If we take offense at the instructions we don’t want to hear and do, if we walk away from those who try to correct us when we are off course, and if we get angry at God and His ministers, then our lives will continue unproductive and unsuccessful.
Faith in God and His Word is richly rewarded. Acting on the Word of God is a crucial step of obedience in getting from the problem we now face to God’s wonderful solution awaiting us.
Your next step? Purpose to become a person who not only hears the Word of God, but does it as well. Be a doer of the Word and build a strong, unshakeable foundation in your life. Live by faith – victorious and successful!
May you walk in faithful obedience to the Word of the Lord and live a successful life full of growing prosperity!

Spirituality – Should You Be Doing Some Clean Up In Your Spiritual Life?
The Power of Making Your Spiritual Life Sparkle
ones that get tended to last.
We get up every morning and look in
the mirror and begin our routine of showering,
brushing, and getting all prettied up.
Our homes, yards, cars, etcetera all get our attention
and cleaned up as needed; but, what about our spiritual home?
Too Busy To Clean?
Life gets busy. That’s no surprise. Soon our housecleaning gets moved to the bottom of the “to do” list until one day we can’t see through the dust on the TV screen. As we look around everything is dull and dirty and no longer beautiful to look at.
Amazingly, after a little time and effort scrubbing, things are sparkling clean and enjoyable once again.
How Did My Spiritual Life Get So Dirty?
Have you noticed how easily the dust and cobwebs seem to have a way of building up without really seeing it happen? Well in fact, our spiritual life gets dirty much the same way.
There are times we commit an obvious sin and it is like falling in a mud puddle; we are clearly dirty and need of some major clean-up. However, the sin in our daily lives is more often like the dust and cobwebs that slowly dirty our spiritual home, almost unnoticed.
In our busy lives we too easily get used to irritable thoughts, selfishness, jealousy, disrespect, lazy attitudes, lack of commitments, and more. Failure to spend daily time in God’s Word and fellowship with Him leads to doing things that displease Him, and at the same time we do not even realize the dirty film they are leaving on us.
Have you gotten too busy with other things in life that you’ve neglected to clean the dust and cobwebs from your spiritual home.
Time to Clean Up The Mess and Make Your Spiritual Life Sparkle!
The solution for the dust, dirt, and grime that comes into our lives, is to clean it up quickly and regularly. The longer we allow it to remain the greater the mess and the more difficult to remove. If neglected too long it results in unsightly stains.
Once the cleaning process has begun, it usually leads to a closer examination, which then tends to require more cleaning. So it is with a close examination of our spiritual life.
The sinful dirt that we have allowed to slowly accumulate in our lives, and have become accustomed to, is not okay with God. He is not accustomed to dirty sinful behaviors. God desires that our lives be pure and clean so that He can see the beautiful reflection of His Son in us.
“Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart…”
— Psalm 24:3-4
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.”
— Psalm 51:10
How can I improve my spiritual life? Be willing to ask yourself this question daily as you do a self-examination of your spiritual home. Ask God to help you see areas that need cleaned up. He not only wants to open your eyes, He wants to help you clean in order to see your natural and spiritual life shine and sparkle!
May your spiritual life be clean, pure and overflowing with growing prosperity!
God bless you always,
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 Power – Tap Into Help from God and let His Spiritual Light Guide You Thru the Storms of Life!
Why Have You Failed to Turn to God for Help?
available to all of us.
Have you lost trust in people?
Have you been let down by them in the past over and over again?
Are you unable to trust those that you used to reply on for help?
Great! That is actually a good thing. Why? Because now you are able to turn to God for help; the one who has the power to rescue any person who is ready to be rescued.
Do You Turn to God for Help?
Far above any human weakness is God, and the truth of His Word. All problems can be solved with help from God, regardless of how long they have been troubling you. There are no exceptions. The following issues and more can be eliminated: stress, anxiety, shame, depression, sickness, loneliness, confusion, lack, pain, loss, anger, and fear.
Tapping into God’s help shines a powerful, spiritual light on all the dark and difficult problems and makes them disappear.
It is strange, but true, that people often fail to get help from God. Why? Simply because they refuse to see that their condition is far worse than it appears on the surface. People fear facing their situation and admitting they don’t have a solution. So they go ahead and deceive themselves into believing the problem is really no big deal.
Where does this leave God? Completely left out!
Do You Leave God Out of the Equation?
Have the courage to face the storms of life that surround you and admit that you don’t have the answers. Don’t be ashamed or fear that fact. Humble yourself before God, and reach out to Him for help to attract the answer to you. Let God be your personal guide through the storm and take you safely to the other side.
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”
— Psalm 46:1
Spiritual information from the truth of God’s Word is spiritual power that also helps us in the natural. To be a sincere seeker of God’s help requires eliminating resistance to His spiritual information and wisdom. God gives us His Word to help only, and not hurt.
Spiritual Power, Help from God
There is God, and there is you. Your help is over there with God right now, just waiting for your arrival.
- Reach out by faith and tap into God’s spiritual power.
- Dig into His Word and find guidance.
- Cry out to Him in prayer and wait patiently for His answer.
- Meditate on His Word and allow His revelation knowledge to manifest in your life.
Are you feeling helpless and hopeless today? Then put your trust in God. He is the helper to the helpless and ruler over all. You don’t have to solve your problems, you just have to acknowledge them and turn them over to the Lord. The Almighty God is your ever present help in time of need.
May you tap into the help of God and His spiritual power and live a life of growing prosperity!
God bless you always-
Soar higher in Him,
