Is Christian Meditation a Biblical Practice – Does God Want You to Meditate?
Proof Biblical Meditation Empowers Christians!
for many believers these days.
Christians are often misled into thinking
meditation is unbiblical and that
they shouldn’t meditate.
However, this cannot be further from the truth!
Christian meditation is rooted in the Bible. God commands us in the Bible to meditate on His Word day and night so we will obey it.
“You shall meditate day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written.”
— Joshua 1:8
Biblical Meditation References
Take a look at Psalm chapter 119. In this chapter alone, we see that meditation on the Word of God is talked about over and over:
- I will meditate in thy precepts and have respect unto thy ways. (Psalm 119:15)
- Your servant did meditate in your statutes and didn’t bother what others said. (Psalm 119:23)
- I will delight myself in your commandments and meditate in your statutes. (Psalm 119:47-48)
- I will meditate in thy precepts. (Psalm 119:78)
- Oh how I love your law! It is my meditation all the day. (Psalm 119:97)
- I have more understanding than all my teachers: for your testimonies are my meditation. (Psalm 119:99)
We don’t count on man’s knowledge. Instead we count on the Word of God and our God given ability to have the eyes of our understanding enlightened when we meditate on the biblical truths of His Word.
Biblical Examples of Meditation
The Bible gives us examples of great men of God that meditated:
- Isaac went out to meditate in the field. (Genesis 24:63)
- Paul instructs Timothy to meditate on these things so his profiting may appear to all. (1 Timothy 4:15)
- The psalmist prayed that the meditation of his heart be sweet and acceptable to God (Psalm 104:34, 19:14)
- Joshua encourages meditation day and night in order to do it and become prosperous and successful. (Joshua 1:8)
These references and examples are only just a sampling; to prove that yes, Christian mediation is biblical.
Do not be fooled: A reason so many Christians live empty, unsatisfying lives is due to the lack of obeying God’s command to meditate on His Word. Their deep spiritual need to be filled with the life transforming power of God is not being met.
Now that you are armed with this information, why not let God’s divine light shine in your life through meditation? There are many rewards of meditating on the Word of God and it is a major key to living a life of victory as a Christian.
Why not purpose to make Christian meditation a daily habit and get started today?
God bless you always,
Successful Leadership – The Power of Teamwork and 4 Keys to Creating a Winning Team!
Successfully Lead a Winning Team and Together Achieve Incredible Things
the power of teamwork.
Much can be accomplished when
working together with others.
However, it is not just a numbers game;
the key here is working together.
Getting the job done requires a winning team.
“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.”
— John C Maxwell
Teams come in all shapes and sizes; from married couples, or small business partnerships, to large organizations of all sorts. A team not only provides companionship but it helps accomplish goals.
Every team requires a leader, and a successful leader knows that there is power in creating a winning team. However, simply having a team of people can be useless.
On the other hand, developing a winning team multiplies a leader’s value and makes them better than they would be on their own. It enables them to do what they do best and tap into the resources that those on the team do best. Then, incredible things happen and everyone on the team wins.
“Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow…And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”
— Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
4 Keys to Creating a Winning Team:
1. Develop a Winning Attitude in Team Members
A winning attitude is a positive attitude and must be prevalent. A winning attitude is developed in team members and they believe in their leader, themselves, their teammates, and the vision to be accomplished. Negative thinking is not allowed to creep in and hinder the task at hand.
2. Teach the Value of Personal Development and Character Building
Each team member as an individual must keep improving. Why? Because the highest reward for their efforts isn’t what they get from it, but the person they become because of it. And without personal growth they become a weak individual and a weak link on the team.
3. Empower Teammates
Winners are encouragers and empower each other to be more and do more. They strive to make their teammates more successful. Empowered teammates maintain a thriving atmosphere with an expectancy to win.
4. Instill the Importance of Playing to Win
A successful team plays to win. They know the difference between playing to win and playing not to lose is often the difference between excellence and average. They don’t play to ‘give it a try’, they play to reach their goal; they play to win.
Bottom line: A successful leader understands the power of teamwork and the importance of creating a winning team. They know that by doing so, incredible things happen and everyone wins as they grow and develop individually and as a team.
May you successfully lead a winning team and together achieve much and experience an abundance of growing prosperity!

Spiritual Power – How Can Operating in the Spiritual Realm Bring Prosperity on Earth?
Find Out How You Can Increase Your Spiritual Powers
willing to learn how to use it and improve it.
Just like we can increase the power…
of our minds and bodies to improve our life,
we can increase our spiritual powers –
to manifest abundant prosperity in all areas of life.
Spirit, Soul, and Body
We are three-part beings; spirit, soul (mind), and body. It is normal for people to go to school, study, and take classes throughout life to improve their minds and intellect. It is also a common practice for people to learn how to strengthen and condition their bodies for improved physical strength. These are all good things that improve our overall quality of life and ability to have growing prosperity.
But what about the spirit part of our being? How easy is it to ignore that part of us that we cannot see, touch, or feel?
The thing is; even though the spiritual realm is invisible it still affects our physical world. The condition of our spirit can be strengthen and improved, just like our mind and body, and it also directly affects the quality of our life.
So if you have been neglecting this part of yourself, today is a good day to reconsider the power of the human spirit.
What part of you doesn’t grow old? Your inward man, your spirit; it is renewed day by day and never ages.
“Though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.”
— 2 Corinthians 4:16
It is vital that you realize the Kingdom of God is inside you and operates through your spirit. As a child of God it was your spirit that was born again of the Spirit of God. You now have the life of God in you, who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. (Eph. 3:20)
When the Greater One is working inside our spirit it is capable of providing everything we need in this life, whether it be spiritual, physical, or financial. It can produce it, lead us to it, or cause it to come. However, we need to learn how to tap into this power and allow our spirit to operate effectively.
Operating in the Spiritual Realm
Our own spirit knows more than our intellect. It is our spirit, inside us, that is the real us that is in contact with God and knows all about our needs, failures, and strengths.
“For what man knows the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him.”
— 1 Corinthians 2:11
If we learn to tap into the power of our spirit by seeking first the Kingdom of God and studying His Word, we can tap into the wisdom of God and have all things added to us and we will prosper.
God’s system will produce abundance when we are diligent to work the system. It requires getting His Word into our heart and spirit and not just our intellect. Why? Because it is a spiritual operation. We can plant it in our spirit and start it growing by confessing something such as the following daily:
‘I give and it is given unto me. I sow bountifully and reap bountifully. My God supplies all my need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.’
When we begin to operate in the spiritual realm, we empower ourselves with a positive force that wards off negative attacks. This positive, spiritual, faith force works on a higher realm than the physical realm and causes the abundance of God to manifest in our lives even if others are in lack.
Truth is: Knowing how to operate on a higher spiritual realm is worth discovering. When we operate in the realm of the spirit with God, we will find His wisdom and empowerment to bring us growing prosperity on earth.
May you operate on a higher spiritual realm and live a life of growing prosperity!

Empowerment – When Temptation Comes a Knocking Why Not Let Honor Slam the Door Shut?
Spiritual Warfare – What Do You Do When You Are Tempted?
source with God.
In life, temptations are going to come to all of us and…
try to zap our power and take us down.
Why give into these attacks?
Empower yourself to overcome…
by tapping into the power source of God.
What Do You Do When You Are Tempted?
When temptation comes a knocking it is time to look to God. Remind yourself that He is always with you. Look at the temptation that is knocking on the door and then look to God. It is not easy when the attacks come, but it is possible to overcome if you stay plugged into God.
Keep in mind, that we always have the choice to honor God in any situation, or we can choose to dishonor Him; and at the same time disrespect ourselves.
Do You Dwell On Dishonorable Thoughts?
Do not be fooled into believing it is okay to dwell on thoughts that, if acted on, would dishonor God. Put a stop to those dark, negative thoughts right away, before they open the door to trouble. Let honor to God slam the door shut when temptation comes a knocking.
Before the knock ever comes, make a sound decision not to dishonor God and not to disrespect yourself. Never lose sight of Him. Thank God for His mercy and grace when we fall short and need it, but purpose to set your standards higher.
Why Lie to Yourself?
Do not be deceived into thinking you can get away with sin without disrespecting yourself. That is a lie. Why would you want to lie to yourself? Don’t you have enough people lying to you right now? Let’s face it, sin always catches up to us.
So when the temptations come, don’t lie to yourself and think you will get away with acting on them. Instead, challenge yourself with questions. Will God be honored and glorified in me if I do this? What message do I give others if I do this?
Living a Higher Life of Honor
Temptations will come, but you don’t have to open the door. You can choose to live a higher life of honor and show others how to do the same. If you are struggling and already opened the door to temptation, then turn to God. Choose to honor God and He will empower you to slam that door shut.
“God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that you are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that you may be able to bear it.”
– 1 Corinthians 10:13
God knows what we are cable of. When we walk in honor, love, peace, and prosperity, we send a valuable message to others. It brings glory and honor to God when His children live right, claim victory over evil, and use their God-given blessings to bless others.
The truth is: What God has for our future is so much better than anything the enemy may be tempting us with. We can overcome temptation when it comes a knocking and choose to live in God’s best for our lives by honoring Him.
May you live empowered, always honoring the King of kings, and enjoying a life of growing prosperity!
God bless you,
Self-Esteem – 10 Empowering Ways to Look Your Best and Live with Confidence!
Empower Yourself With Confidence and Look Your Best
We often spend lots of time and money on dressing up our outward appearance with the latest hair styles, lotions, sprays, make-up, designer clothes, etc.
Yet, there are many things we can do on the inside…
that will help us shine on the outside.
10 Empowering Ways to Look Your Best:
1. Help Others. You’ll Be Glad You Did.
How can helping others make you look good? We are here to serve others and in doing so we build our confidence. The satisfaction of helping others allows us to walk tall with our head up knowing we take time to put others first.
2. Talk and Walk with Happiness. God Created You.
Why walk around feeling sad and talking about yourself like a worthless nobody? The Almighty God of the universe created you with a unique divine purpose for your life on this earth. Be happy knowing your heavenly Father favors you and let your talk and walk show it.
3. Choose Joy No Matter What Happens Today.
How can you choose joy when there is trouble in your life? True joy comes from peace with God and putting your trust in Him. You can live with joy and confidence knowing God is with you even in your days of trouble.
“The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him in song.” — Psalm 28:7
4. Be Content With Yourself and Do Not Envy Others.
Why let the stress of jealousy and envy of others make you look your worst? Learn to be content and thankful with who you are and what you have. God made you the unique you for a reason. Ask God to help you change what needs to change in your life and be happy for others when they are blessed.
5. Be Generous to God and the People Around You.
There is nothing like being refreshed to look your best! And God says that those who refresh others will they themselves be refreshed. (Proverbs 11:25) When you are generous with your time and money towards God and others, you will enjoy a refreshing from the inside out that lets you shine and look your best.
6. Speak What is True and With Lots of Kindness.
How do you look at honest, kind people compared to liars and mean people? Those who speak the truth with kindness put their best side forward; and it shows on the outside. Honest people look their best, because they live their best.
7. Keep Your Heart Free of Wrong Desires.
Keep your heart full of healthy, positive, godly desires. The desires of our heart are the things we are going to think on and speak on. And these are the things that are going to come to pass in our life. So look your best by letting godly desires manifest in your life.
8. Take Care of Your Appearance.
Okay. So we weren’t all born looking like Barbie and Ken. But we still need to do the best with what we have and learn to ‘accentuate the positive.’ Taking care of your outward appearance increases your confidence, and greater confidence helps you look even better on the outside; a nice little cycle to get started.
9. Be Real. No Need to Fake It.
Can’t you usually spot a fake a mile away? No need to be one. No need to try and be someone else, because you are not. You are you. So just be real and be you. Again, learn to do the best with what you have and be confident in you who you are. The real you looks much better than the fake you!
10. Wear a Smile. Smile God Loves You!
Who can deny a smile to look your best? And who can deny the power of love to put a smile on your face? Even if you don’t have a special sweetheart in your life, you always have a God who loves you. And when you have the love of God in your life, you can’t help but smile and look your best.
Start Today. Begin to put these ten empowering ways into practice, and walk confident and look your best.
May you be empowered on the inside so you can look your best on the outside and enjoy a life of growing prosperity!

Empowerment – Do Not Be a Wimp in the Valley of Decision Making!
Discover How the Power of Decisiveness and Quality Choices Can Lead to Success!
We all have our strengths and weaknesses.
At some point in life…
a lack of success and/or balance
will shed light on those areas that need to be better
developed and strengthened.
Are You a Decision Making Wimp?
A primary trait that we all should develop as soon as possible is the ability to make quality decisions. Every person is born with a God-given capacity and right to choose. The ability to choose is our free moral agency, and it is also one of the main ways in which we are made in the image of God.
We are born into a world where everything operates by decisions.
“Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.”
— Joel 3:14
God respects our right to choose and make decisions, even if it results in a bad outcome. Truly we live in the valley of decision and we see man’s right to choose as a theme repeated throughout the Bible. Different aspects of the power of choice are emphasized from Genesis to Revelation.
“I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing, therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live.”
— Deuteronomy 30:19
Let the Almighty God ‘Have Your Back’
Choosing to live by faith in God is the most important quality decision you can make in life. When you make a determined decision to trust God and His Word over any circumstance, you open the door to receive His promises.
The Almighty God is ready and willing to back you up with all of heaven’s power. He will move mighty on behalf of someone who has purposed to do things by the Book. You make the decision and God will back you up!
It is no secret; those who are half-hearted and wishy-washy about their decision making, never reach the level of success they desire. Why? Because the people that are double minded, and waver in their choices, are unstable and lack the commitment and resolve needed to win.
“Ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavers is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”
— James 1:6-8
Many people are wise enough to make a quality decision to do things God’s way early on in life. However, for others it may take finally getting fed up with where they are at…
If that is you, are you going to continue to live with problems that are trying to defeat you, or are you going to make a determined, unwavering decision to overcome by doing things God’s way?
Start to practice making conscious choices to do things God’s way in the little things, and over time it will become a habit and easier to choose His way in the big things.
Guess what? All of heaven is waiting for your quality decision, made of your own free will, to operate according to God’s Word. It is an essential step in the divine order of faith and opens the door to the blessings and power of God. Begin now to empower yourself by making regular, intentional, committed decisions.
May you empower yourself with decisiveness and live in growing prosperity!
Be blessed to be a blessing –
P.S. Christianity is really nothing more than a series of decisions…
Think about it. Jesus died on the cross so that you might have forgiveness of sins and inherit eternal life. But that fact alone does you no good unless you make a decision to receive what He provided for you. God respects your right to choose (even if that means letting you spend eternity in hell).
Please CHOOSE LIFE! 🙂
