The Law of Attraction – Living by Faith
Claiming Your Inheritance
If you are a subscriber, you already received the complete chapter free.
I like to randomly read parts of this book…
and when I did today, the following stood out:
“Mental laws are clear and simple. We know that the fear thought attracts more fear, the worry thought more worry, the anxious thought more anxiety, the hatred thought more hatred, the jealous thought more jealousy, and the poverty thought more poverty. This is the law of attraction. Like every other law, it is unalterable.
The poverty disease can be cured only by its antidote——the prosperity thought. You carry within you this antidote to the poison of poverty, of lack, of pinching, dwarfing limitation. Use it, and cure yourself. The prosperity thought will kill the poverty germ.
Keep your supply pipes open between yourself and the infinite source of all supply. Don’t pinch them by doubt, don’t cut off the supply by limiting, pinching, poverty, lack thought.
Keep your supply pipes wide open by the consciousness of your oneness with God, your connection with the All Supply.
Abundance follows a law as exact as that of the law of mathematics. If we obey it we get the flow. If we pinch it, strangle it, we cut off the supply.
Suppose a youth who had decided to study medicine and become a doctor should say to himself: “I cannot picture myself as a success because I don’t know anything about what may come to me. Perhaps I haven’t the qualifications that make a successful physician. I may never become one. I may be a failure. I doubt if I am fitted for it, but I’ll try, anyway.”
Do you think such a timid, doubting, negative attitude would ever carry anyone to the success goal? Of course it wouldn’t.
The young medical student who is going to succeed is the one who pictures himself constantly as a successful physician, sees himself in a fine office, with a lucrative practice, climbing to the top of his profession. He is constantly visualizing himself as a successful physician.
Now, the same rule applies to the poor man who wants to become prosperous. He must picture himself as prosperous, he must obey the law of opulence by holding the ideal of opulence in his mind, and he must saturate himself with the prosperity thought, the thought of abundance.
If you wish to cure yourself of the poverty disease you should begin by giving yourself prosperity treatments something like this:
Say to yourself:
“If I am God’s child I have inherited all the good things of the universe. I am heir to all supply, to the all-good. Poverty cannot touch the reality of me any more than disease can, for the reality of me is health. Health is the everlasting fact, and disease, sickness, is merely the absence of the reality. Poverty is not my normal condition. There can be no lack, no poverty for God’s image. ‘All that my Father hath is mine.’”
Repeat daily the twenty-third psalm:
“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside the still waters,” etc.
Follow this during the day with frequent assertions of your kinship with the Creator of all the universe.
Commit these lines by Ella Wheeler Wilcox to memory, and frequently say them to yourself, vigorously, and with the force of absolute conviction:
“I am success.
Though hungry, cold, ill-clad,
I wander for a while, I smile and say:
‘It is but for a time—I shall be glad
Tomorrow, for good fortune comes my way.
God is my Father, He has wealth untold;
His wealth is mine, health, happiness and gold.’”
All the good things you need are yours by inheritance. Claim them, expect them, work for them, believe they are already yours, and you will realize them in your life.
If you continually assert your kinship with God your Father, to whom all things belong, and send out the vigorous thought of abundance, a generous supply of all you need—which is your birthright—poverty cannot hold you its slave.” — Orison Swett Marden
As Christian believers we are to live by faith, because God’s Word says so.
“The just shall live by faith.” — Romans 1:17
Living by faith means believing and obeying the Word of God. We have to think, speak, meditate, and act on God’s Word daily. There may be many books that inform, encourage, and inspire us, but there is only One Book that is full of Divine Living Power…
Have you opened your Bible yet today and let the Word of God speak to you?
May God’s Word come alive in your life this year like never before and leave a trail of growing prosperity everywhere you go!
Be blessed to be a blessing!

Empowerment: Top 7 Reasons Why You Should Live Empowered with Self-Confidence
Live Empowered with a Healthy Self-Confidence!
The self-confident person has faith in their own abilities and judgment.
And believe me…
Life flows along much easier for those who are empowered with confidence in who they are.
Top 7 Reasons to Live Empowered with Self-Confidence
1. Self-Confidence Explores Life
How can you explore what life has to offer and what you are capable of doing if you lack faith in yourself? Keep in mind the opposite of faith is fear. And fearful people tend to be stuck living as puppets and never able to explore their true potential.
2. Loving Yourself Equals Loving Your Neighbor
How can we love our neighbor as ourselves (Matthew 19:19), if we don’t even like ourselves? Learn to like yourself, so you can eventually love yourself. It is a vital key to living empowered.
Stop telling yourself you are a useless, ugly, good-for-nothing. In order to effectively love your neighbor, you first need to be able to say “I Love Me” too.
3. Confidence is Contagious
How can we encourage others who are struggling in life if we are constantly walking around with a negative, low opinion of ourselves? Confidence is contagious and should be passed around. When we walk in confidence and assurance, it helps lift up and encourage others around us who are weak.
4. Rise to the Top with Confidence
How can living a life with low self-esteem bring out the best you have to offer? Quit saying I can’t do this and I can’t do that, and start confessing that you can be all God created you to be. Confidence is a leadership building quality.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” — Philippians 4:13
5. Confidence Gives a Positive Edge
How can a lack of self-confidence, and a mind that is full of negative thoughts, result in a positive outlook on life?
If you want a positive edge then develop your self-esteem. Confidence can empower your life with positive energy and positive actions. A healthy self-confidence allows you to live from a positive base.
6. Self-Confidence is the Power to Overcome Rejection
How can a person expect to handle the rejections of life without a strong self-confidence? We all have to deal with rejection in life and it usually starts at an early age. Rejection can cause much pain and develop an overwhelming inferiority complex.
It takes the empowerment of self-confidence to deal with the attacks of rejection. Instead of constantly asking “what is wrong with me?” a healthy level of confidence refuses to be intimidated. Self-confidence provides the understanding to know that we do not reject ourselves, simply because someone else does.
7. True Self-Confidence Glorifies God
How can we live a life that glorifies God if we live by fear instead of faith? True self-confidence comes when we are strong and confident in the Lord. Our self-confidence should be grounded by faith in God. Living a victorious life by faith glorifies God.
“Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you that hope in the Lord.” — Psalm 30:24
Now that you’ve read the above seven reasons; doesn’t it make sense to develop your self-confidence?
Do yourself a favor: Live empowered with self-confidence. But, be warned; you are not the center of the universe – God is. However, it is possible to walk boldly and confidently as a child of God, and at the same time maintain a humble heart.
May you live empowered with healthy self-confidence and growing prosperity!

Abundance – Want a Powerful 3 Step Formula that Reveals Secret to Your Abundant Prosperity?
Tap Into Your Built-In Potential to Create Prosperity!
Just because you are unable to see the potential inside yourself at any given moment does not mean it is not there.
You can’t see your emotions or your thoughts, but they are real, and they do exist.
How do you reveal that built in potential and tap into it?
This powerful formula is simple, but extremely effective, and gets results. It’s been taught and explained in many different ways over the years. Why? In an attempt to get people to live the life they were designed to live. How sad to see people go to the grave never accomplishing that thing they were created to do!
From Potential to Potential Realized
1.) FAITH & CONFESSION
Start where you are and begin using the measure of faith God has given you. Just like there is great built in potential for a future harvest inside the smallest seed, your faith has built in potential to manifest abundance.
A seed won’t produce results if it’s not planted. By faith you must plant the seeds of change you wish to harvest in your life.
How do you do that? You set the law of faith into motion with your confessions. Life and death are in the power of the tongue. (Proverbs 18:21)
By faith, confess (speak) your desire; your belief. Verbally state out loud to yourself what it is you believe to manifest. Faith speaks what it believes.
Understand that faith works in your heart, not in your head. Use your mind to make a plan and decide what it is you need and desire. Then by faith, speak it to get it planted in your heart where it will go to work.
Hearing yourself speak your desire is not only the secret activator of your faith, but it also increases your faith. As your faith grows, you’ll find yourself thinking and talking more often about that thing you need or desire. This positive cycle helps you become fully persuaded; which leads us to the next step.
2.) FULLY PERSUADED, HOPE & VISUALIZATION
Faith is described as the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen. (Hebrews 11:1)
In order to manifest your desire, you must have faith that is fully persuaded. It is important to eliminate doubt, wavering, and wishy-washy thinking. Become fully persuaded and certain of what you believe.
Have hope that positive things are coming to pass.
Visualize your desired goal in great detail and keep hopeful and focused on the prize. Have confidence that what you can now only see by faith will manifest in the natural.
3.) ACTION, ACTION, & MORE ACTION
It is now time to mix your faith with action. Faith without works is dead. (James 2:20)
The law of faith may be a spiritual law, but it works along with natural laws. If you believe, then you’ll take action; which is required to get results.
The farmer doesn’t plant seed unless he believes it will produce a harvest. After sowing the seed, his work is still not done. It requires more work tending to it. Even after it is fully grown it still requires massive action to reap the harvest.
Also keep in mind; everything produces after its kind and you reap what you sow. Speak only your desired result or solution, not the problem. Keep your thoughts, words, and actions lined up with your desired belief. If you let fear or unwanted thoughts creep in, then you’ll soon have an unwanted harvest.
Now go use this formula in your life. Exercise your faith and put it to good use. For ultimate results, find out what the Word of God has to say over your situation and speak it. Tap into your potential and reveal abundant prosperity.
May your faith increase and your life be full of growing prosperity!

Prosperous Living – How to Break the Poverty Cycle and Manifest the Abundance of God!
How to Use Your Power to Prosper
If you are on a treadmill of poverty and lack, I have good news for you today. You can get off the road that leads to lack and start heading down the road that leads to prosperity.
So you’ve been busy, busy, busy – working hard, but getting nowhere. Not very satisfying is it?
God has plans to prosper you and give you a hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11) He wants you to prosper, and He has empowered you with the ability to do just that.
Doesn’t it make sense to get some positive results out of your efforts?
If you answered yes, then you will be glad to know that you can; starting today.
Manage Your Mind to Prosper
The trick to living life to the fullest is learning to program your mind for success.
When your thoughts line up with plans of success and prosperity long enough, eventually your actions follow suite.
“Tis the mind that makes the body rich.” – Shakespeare
Are You Thinking?
That may seem like a silly question, but unfortunately there appears to be a group of people that go through life and avoid using their minds. Their lives become a routine that requires little conscious effort.
They choose jobs, entertainment, and pastimes that purposely do not challenge their intellect. When they do share thoughts it tends to be about what they saw on TV or gossip about others. The trivia question on the back of the cereal box is a major accomplishment.
What Are You Thinking About?
What you think, you are. (Proverbs 23:7)
God places a great emphasis on renewing our minds daily. What we think about is vitally important to the results we get in life. Like the saying goes; “Garbage in, garbage out.”
We are limited only by the obstacles we create in our minds.
Decide to succeed and set goals to reach your desire. Take some time to work out a plan to reach each goal. Discipline yourself to keep your mind focused on what you want to achieve.
Remember, your mind and heart plans your way, but the Lord directs your steps. (Proverbs 16:9) We need to make sure we acknowledge God every step of the way.
How Are You Thinking?
We have the choice to program our conscious minds with positive, affirmative beliefs. We can think positive and hopeful and chose a victory minded attitude.
Your subconscious mind takes these messages as fact and goes to work making them a reality in your life.
Don’t short-circuit your success with a negative self-inflicted defeated image of yourself. Have the attitude of the Apostle Paul and say, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13)
You can tap into the abundance of God.
I think you get the point. What we think and how we think is shaping our future. Prosperous thinking equals prosperous living. God doesn’t want to see our lives going in circles in the desert when He has a great abundance prepared and waiting for us. Manage your mind to step into prosperous living.
May your mind be renewed daily by the Word of God and result in a life of growing prosperity!
