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!

Biblical Prosperity – An Abundance of Spiritual Blessings!
Have You Claimed Your Rich Inheritance?
God desires to do good things for His children and produce good fruit in their lives.
His blessings on our lives bring glory and honor to Him.
So let’s take a look at what the Bible says about prosperity.
What is Biblical Prosperity and why is the abundant life based on spiritual prosperity?
Biblical Prosperity – Blessed with Spiritual Blessings
God has left all His children a great inheritance and we can see this by reading His will. And what God has provided, He did abundantly. There is no need for His children to divide up a little, because there is more than enough to go around.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.”
— Ephesians 1:3
See what I mean? It says ‘ALL’ spiritual blessings in heavenly places. I don’t know about you, but ‘all the spiritual blessings in heavenly places’ sounds like abundance to me!
And notice these blessings have already been provided and this is prosperity that we can walk in NOW, not later. We can tap into this spiritual prosperity by asking God to give us the spirit of wisdom and revelation into His will.
Pray that God opens the eyes of your heart and His Word comes alive in your life.
“The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.”
— Ephesians 1:18
As children of God we are made alive together and seated together with Christ in heavenly places. Once we see life from God’s perspective, and realize we are prosperous right now with every spiritual blessing, our life and future outlook becomes changed forever.
Spiritual Prosperity – The Foundation of an Abundant Life
The kingdom of God is a spiritual one and the foundation of our prosperity, as kingdom citizens, starts in heavenly places; an area that we can’t physically see or touch. As children of God we have been given all spiritual blessings in Christ.
Yes, if we want to transform our world and manifest financial prosperity and success we have to observe natural laws. But first we must seek to obey spiritual laws that have power to bring even greater riches in our lives. Then by combining the natural and spiritual laws we can find ourselves with growing prosperity; spirit, soul, and body.
‘The riches of the glory of the inheritance of the saints’ is the great treasure for God’s children. It is the great prosperity –the abundance of God. We are made righteous and sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise. We have love, joy, peace, hope, and more…
Biblical prosperity starts with spiritual prosperity first. From there God gives each of us the unique abilities to prosper in life in ways that will bring glory to Him.
Live like King Uzziah, who as long as he sought the Lord, God made him to prosper. (2 Chronicles 26:5)
The truth is: Biblical prosperity is the abundant life. We can have all spiritual blessings when we find our place in Christ! Why not choose to live the great adventure, and the great prosperity that is available in Christ? We can have an abundant and prosperous life in Christ as we continue to pursue and chase after Him…
Are you enjoying the riches of the glory of your inheritance? If not, ask God to open the eyes of your heart and reveal how you are blessed right now with every spiritual blessing.
May the eyes of your understanding be enlightened and your life full of growing prosperity!

Self-Growth – Uncovering the Great Power of Possibilities Within! Part 2 of 2
Self-discovery by Finding the Presence of God Within!
from Orison Swett Marden.
They are excerpts from chapter 7 “How to Find Oneself”
from the book “How to Get What You Want.”
Although written back in 1917,
these words still hold great insight and the ability to stir us up and check our current progress in life.
This is part 2 of 2 for men and women who strive to make the most of their lives and never stop growing on their journey through life.
Excerpts from “How to Find Oneself” by Orison Swett Marden:
Self-discovery is simply a question of finding the presence of God within ourselves.
When we become conscious that the kingdom of God is within us it becomes a great self-illuminator, because it takes us back to our source, connects us with infinite life, with the great cosmic heart of the universe. It is a trolley pole which connects us with the mighty current of infinite power, and then our life problems seem easy because we are not pushing our car ourselves. God does that.
Many people had never really met themselves until they became acquainted with the reality of their connection to the Creator. That is, they had never up to that time found the best part of themselves.
They had previously been getting their living by their weak faculties instead of their strong ones. They had been in the position of people living in poverty on a little corner of their vast estate, ignorant that there were great deposits of undiscovered, unmined wealth.
The possibilities of mental expansion, enlargement of vision, quickening of the mental faculties, increasing the efficiency,—in other words, the possibilities of self-discovery are almost unbelievable.
We find ourselves in very different ways. Struggling with difficulties, disappointments, failures, great responsibilities, has been the means of recalling many human beings to themselves.
The greatest of their latent possibilities lies so deep in some natures that it takes the impact of a tremendous emergency, a great life, or national crisis to call it out. Any ordinary event, the easy way of prosperity, will not do it; it must be something which shakes them to the very center of their being and knocks out from under them every support.
They must feel that they have nothing to lean upon but the creative power within—only the God who made them.
So long as there is no supreme call made on the great within of them they never know their own resources. On the other hand the structure of many a divine success has risen out of the ashes of a burned fortune or apparently ruined hopes.
Like the plants which must be crushed before they will reveal their sweetest fragrance, or their beneficent properties, many people never reveal the sweetest thing in them until they are crushed by some great sorrow.
They go through half a life or more unconscious of the richness which lies buried within them, when suddenly some great grief, some overwhelming misfortune reveals a wealth of personality, and of power which not even those who knew them best dreamed they possessed.
Many people pass their fiftieth, even their sixtieth milestone, before they find themselves, before something happens which unlocks a new door in the great within of themselves and reveals new powers, new resources, of which they had never before been conscious.
Then in a few years after their discovery they have redeemed half a lifetime of ineffectiveness.
We often hear men and women who have found themselves tell of the particular things which awakened their ambition; the accident, the sorrow, the emergency, the book, the suggestion, the encouraging friend, which first gave them a glimpse of their own possibilities, uncovered powers which they never before dreamed they possessed.
If all of the people who have done things worthwhile in the world would only give an account of how they were awakened, tell of the things that had aroused their ambition,—the incident, the circumstance, the book, the lecture, the sermon, the advice, or the catastrophe, the failures, the crisis, the emergency, the afflictions, the losses in their lives, what a wonderful help it would be to the strugglers who are conscious that they have locked up within them forces which have not been aroused and which theycannot seem to get hold of.
The man who can write a book that will enable people to discover their unused assets will do an incalculable service to humanity.
“Great masters are they who help you to find yourself, the others simply find you.”
— Dr. Frank Crane
There are a multitude of things which assist our self-discovery. Keeping our minds in a positive, creative condition; keeping ourselves physically at the top of our condition, in perfect health; maintaining mental poise, a cheerful, happy mental attitude, by keeping our minds free from fear and worry and anxiety,—all of these things are great aids to self-discovery.
And there is no secret about any of these things.
Self-confidence is a potent self-discoverer. Distrust, self-depreciation closes the doors to the locked-up potencies and powers within. Faith opens the door and releases them.
Seek every possible experience which seems to open up your nature and release new force.
For instance, great lovers of music after listening to a wonderful voice, or going to an opera, feel something inside of them released, something which had been locked up before, something which they never really knew they possessed until then.
If you would get at your hidden resources, stimulate your growth and your power, you must be continually improving yourself somewhere; increasing your intelligence by closer and keener observation, by the constant study of men and things, the broadening of your mental and spiritual outlook, the getting away from self and the enlarging of your sphere of service and helpfulness.
We are all in a continuous process of development, and, as yet, strangers to the immense possibilities that sleep in the great within of ourselves. Uncovering these possibilities, finding our resources, should be the great object of every human being.
“Know thyself!” This is really the chief business of man—to learn to know himself, to realize the power that is his through his inseparable union with his Creator.
The end of part 2 of 2.
“‘For I know the plans I have for you’, declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'”
— Jeremiah 29:11
God bless you and be blessed to be a blessing!

Growing Prosperity – People Want to Know Your Secret When You Prosper in Tough Times!
How Do Some Continue to Prosper In Tough Economic Times?
makes people take notice.
They will want to know your secret.
And sharing your secret for –
is a great way to be a blessing to others.
Growing Prosperity in Bad Economic Times
Here we are. Economic conditions are bad. Even so, you continue to drive new vehicles, live in better homes, and wear quality clothes. Everybody at work is saying, “What are we gonna do? Gas prices are going up, food prices are increasing, blah, blah, blah.” They moan and complain and bellyache.
You refuse to be a part of that conversation. These conditions do not faze you one bit. People start to take serious notice of that. They begin to approach you and ask, “What is your secret?”
The Secret for Abundant Success in Tough Times
So what is your secret? You tell them your secret is the fact that you got turned on to the truth of the God’s Word; that you got a hold of some powerful principles in His Word and put them to work by faith. The result is manifested blessings in your life.
If we are going to survive in this world and prosper, we need the blessing of the Lord. Unless of course, we plan to try and make it the world’s way; which generally means having to lie, cheat, steal, etcetera. When we use God’s system of prosperity we do not have to do those things.
What Do You Seek First?
Those who walk closely with God are not bothered much by the things going on in the world around them. Others may become more unstable and fearful as things get worse and worse, but those who live according to God’s ways maintain peace and stability.
“Seek first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
— Matthew 6:33
God wants us to seek Him first and not be like so many in the world who seek after money and riches. We should seek the way to please God, and seek to be right with Him. When we seek the kingdom of God first, all the other things will be added unto us.
You know what happens when all the other things begin to be added unto us? People begin to take notice. Others will begin to see the blessing of God upon us; and not just the financial abundance of God, but the priceless peace of God.
Get the secret or share the secret. Now get out there and discover God’s system of prosperity. Put it into practice and begin walking in the full blessing of the Lord. If you are already living by His system, and others are standing up and taking notice, then be ready to share your secret for abundant success.
May you seek first the kingdom of God and be blessed with a life of growing prosperity!

Help Me! How on Earth Do I Know What God’s Purpose and Will is for My Life?
Knowing God’s Will and God’s Purpose for Your Life
“What is God’s plan and purpose for my life?”
We sooner or later reach a time in life when we find our self questioning why we are here. We come to a point of knowing, deep inside, that there must be something more God would have for us to do with our lives.
Well, how can you know the will of God and what you should do with your life? Good question. And it all starts with the Word of God, since God’s Word is God’s will.
Knowing God’s General Will
The Bible teaches us how to live our lives. It is filled with instructions and directions and it reveals God’s general will for all of us. So, first and foremost, we need to get into God’s Word so that we can know what He wants from us. His Word is very powerful and will guide us.
Here are just a couple examples:
“Present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” — Romans 12:1-2
“Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” — 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
God’s will for man is not a hidden mystery. Anyone can open the Book and quickly see many things that God wants them to do (and not do). The chief aim and purpose of our lives should be to live according to His revealed will.
Knowing God’s Specific Will
Now you might be asking, “How do I know God’s specific plan for my life?” People often want God to tell them specifically what to do; like where to live, where to work, where to go to school, who to marry, etcetera.
Well, God can show us in many different ways. A loud, audible voice from heaven is not required, but listening to that still, small voice is. God has given us the Holy Spirit for guidance. The Spirit of truth is here to guide us into all truth. (John 16:13)
God can also direct us, through the events happening around us. And if we are already living daily according to God’s revealed will, decisions will be much clearer and easier to make. There is a peace that comes when we are pleasing God with our lives.
To get answers, we also need to pray and ask for God’s help and direction. When deciding between two options, the one that brings a greater peace is usually God’s will. Emotions sometimes create a false peace, but true peace will remain even after emotions fall.
Keep in mind: God allows us to make choices, but He is ultimately in control. We should trust Him always in faith that He will accomplish His will in our lives.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” — Proverbs 3:5-6
Plus, questions we should be asking are, “Am I doing this for me or for God? Is this what I want or what God wants?” The key is to desire to make choices that agree with God’s will. If a decision does not go against the Word of God, then we can follow our heart.
“It was the Lord who put it into my mind… I could feel His hand upon me… There is no question the inspiration was from the Holy Spirit because He comforted me with rays of marvelous illumination from the Holy Scriptures… No one should fear to undertake any task in the name of our Savior if it is just and if the intention is purely for His holy service.”
— Christopher Columbus (from his diary, in reference to his discovery of ‘the New World’)
Created with a Purpose
God does have great plans for your life! You were created by God, in His image, for a purpose. (Jeremiah 29:11) We have all been given unique gifts and talents. And just like our physical body is made up of many different parts, all unique, and all important to having a fully functioning body; so it is with the body of Christ.
Your gifts and talents have been given to you so you can be a blessing to the kingdom of God and make a positive contribution in life. So step out and act on the revealed knowledge you have already been given and use the talents you already have.
Then trust God to reveal more to you after you are faithful first in the little. Be confident that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion. (Philippians 1:6) God’s purpose for all is that He is glorified and the gospel and kingdom of God be advanced.
In Conclusion: The wise king Solomon tells us the conclusion of the whole matter and duty of man is to fear God and keep His commandments. (Ecclesiastes 12:13) He also encourages us to enjoy life and be happy with our work. Keep the Word of God your foundation and watch His great plan revealed before your very eyes. God is for you and He will help you.
May you seek first the kingdom of God and live a life full of growing prosperity!
God bless you,
Growing Prosperity – Why on Earth Does God Want to Prosper Us?
A Look at the Purpose Behind Our Prosperity
It is good to know God wants to prosper us…
but why on earth does He want to?
We should understand the purpose behind our prosperity.
This is important today…
more than ever before…
so let’s take a look.
Why God Prospers Us
Is it so we can watch our favorite shows on the big screen, in the ultimate personal home-theater room? Is it so we can wear the finest of clothes and shop in elite boutiques? Is it so we can eat the best, drive the best, and live in a huge home?
There is nothing wrong with enjoying nice things, but is that why God prospers us?
“God gives you power to get wealth; that He may establish His covenant.”
— Deuteronomy 8:18
Everything in the universe belongs to God. We simply manage what we’ve been blessed with. And God expects us to keep and use some of this abundance in our own lives. We should care for our families and prosper.
Yet, the desire to prosper should not come from a love for money or with a motive to greedily hoard it up. Our primary concern should be to extend and promote the Kingdom of God on earth.
God gives us power to get wealth, so that His covenant may be established and spread to all the people on earth. The gift of salvation is free, but frankly it takes money to send the good news throughout the earth for everyone to hear.
Blessed to Be a Blessing
Take a look around and it is quite obvious there are plenty of people in need. How can you be a blessing to the less fortunate if you are struggling in your own lack?
God wants us to be blessed to be a blessing. He is able to make all grace abound toward us so that we are always sufficient in all things – so that we can abound to every good work. (2 Corinthians 9:8)
The goodness of God, which is shown by our kindness and generosity toward others, also leads men to repentance. (Romans 2:4)
And the kicker is: As we purpose to be a channel of God’s blessing to others, He will continue to send greater blessings to us.
The truth is: We should enjoy growing prosperity! The ability to gain wealth and prosper is God’s gift to us. It is a gift we are meant to enjoy in life, but also share with others.
May you use your God given power, to get wealth, to establish His covenant on earth and enjoy a life of growing prosperity!
God bless you –
P.S. Have you recognized a time in your life that God blessed you to be a blessing and it resulted in a positive witness to the goodness of God? If so, feel free to share and leave a comment…
Abundance of God! Can You Unlock Prosperity by 3 Tried and True Keys?
Unlock Unlimited Abundance and Growing Prosperity!
Tapping into His source is tapping into a never ending flow.
How can ungodly people experience financial success?
This is a commonly asked question. You need to understand that anyone can reach a level of prosperity by simply following natural laws.
However, a supernatural prosperity is available by also following God’s spiritual laws for success.
Start enjoying the good life God has made available for you!
3 Tried and True Keys to Unlock Your Prosperity:
1.) TRUST GOD AS YOUR SOURCE
He owns everything. You need to recognize you only manage the things in your possession. All your abilities, talents, and possessions come from God.
Note, the one thing you are allowed to have ownership of, is your will. You can make your own choices and determine how you want to live. When you choose to partner with God and acknowledge Him, you cannot fail!
In Chronicles 26:5 it reminds us that as long as we seek the Lord, He will make us to prosper.
2.) OBEY NATURAL LAWS OF ABUNDANCE
God has set up natural laws for you to live by. These include laws, that when followed, help attract prosperity into your life. Time has proven them to be successful.
The four primary natural laws that determine your measure of abundance are: mind, money, time, and relationships.
First, you must get control of your thought life and manage your mind. Choose to think positive and envision the life you desire. These thoughts will then get planted into your subconscious, which goes to work making them a reality.
Manage the money you have. God says we have to be faithful with the little we have before we can be trusted with more. Learn to budget, tithe, give generously, shop smart, invest wisely, live within your means, etcetera.
Control your time and use it wisely. We all have the same amount of hours in a day. Make the right choices to plan and prioritize your day to accomplish more.
Your relationships can make you or break you. You should never underestimate the influence that those around you have. Choose your friends and companions wisely.
3.) OBEY SPIRITUAL LAWS OF ABUNDANCE
Have faith in the promises of God. They are true and like money in the bank. You can depend on God’s Word to come to pass. His Word has the power to bring riches greater than financial into your life.
“Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.” – 3 John 2
The measure you sow is the measure you reap, and you will reap what you sow in life.
Seek God’s kingdom first and turn your life over to Him. Psalm 84:11 tells us that He withholds no good thing from them that walk uprightly. Things don’t always manifest overnight, so learn to walk by faith and keep your trust in the living God.
Truth be told: Nothing is impossible when God is on the scene. So seek Him and partner up. Seeking and obeying God’s laws is the key to unlock unlimited prosperity and abundance.
May you tap into God’s unlimited abundance and continue to experience growing prosperity!
Be blessed to be a blessing –
P.S. How are these working in your life?
