How Can Christian Meditation and Positive Biblical Affirmations Adjust My Attitude?
Get a Spirit Lift for a Brighter Outlook on Life!
allow the Spirit of God to stir us up
and make us happy.
There is power in God’s Word to
renew our mind and replace negative
thoughts with positive life filled thoughts.
If we find ourselves dwelling on the same discouraging,
depressing, stressful, worrisome thoughts, then we need to put a stop to it.
How? By replacing negative thoughts with truths from the Word of God.
Replace Negative Thoughts with Positive Truths
You see, meditation on scripture gives us understanding of how God sees us and our future. In His scriptures we find words of hope, joy, peace, and encouragement.
“My meditation of Him shall be sweet and I will be glad in the Lord.”
— Psalm 104:34
We can help make the truths of God’s Word become a part of our mental dialogue by listening to Christian Meditation CDs or Biblical Affirmation CDs during our morning routine, at the office, in the car, while doing chores, and when falling asleep. Then when negative thoughts try to surface, our mind will be prepared and ready to affirm God’s Word instead.
The great thing about affirmations is that it is like planting positive seeds of change. Our minds are able to focus on the new positive thoughts, which will eventually grow to replace the old negative ones.
Biblical affirmations are scriptures that are stated in a positive, first person, present tense form. It is important to make them positive, because the things we hear repeatedly get deposited into our subconscious. And our subconscious takes in everything as if it is real.
Biblical Affirmation Example
Let’s look at an example of a positive biblical affirmation…
Have you ever had a time of struggling with fear? Well, we know that God says, He has not given us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7) The truth of God’s Word is that fear is not of Him. What is of God is power, love and a sound mind.
In this example we would not want to affirm ‘I am not afraid’, or ‘I do not fear’. Why? Because our subconscious is going to hear us confessing fear.
So what should the affirmation be? Make the affirmation: ‘God has given me a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind.’
Begin now to fill your mind with this affirmation and your fears will begin to fade. The instant you become fearful, start confessing this affirmation and put a stop to the fearful thoughts instantly.
The success in using affirmations is repetition and speaking them out loud. You must listen to or read affirmations over and over until they begin to take root and grow.
So there you have it: Make Christian meditation and biblical affirmations a daily habit. Maintain a positive attitude and a bright outlook on life with the life transforming power of God’s Word. It is His desire that all believers tap into it as they grow nearer to Him.
Why not begin meditating and affirming the powerful Word of God in your life today?
God bless you always,
Growing Prosperity: Walk in the Abundance of God and Prosperous Health!
Claim the Divine Healing Power of God in Your Life
We all know that when our health is in tip-top condition
we feel like we can conquer the world.
Yet when sickness attacks, it becomes a chore
just to make it through the day.
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers.”
— 3 John 2
The truth about the abundance of God is that it is full of His grace and mercy. His love goes out to everyone. He provides us with immune systems, doctors, and medicine to help us fight off sickness and disease in the physical realm.
And it gets even better for the children of God. Why? Because sickness and disease are not only fought off by the immune system, which is God’s grace in our body, but it can also be fought off in the spiritual realm! How? With God’s Word!
Prosperous Words for Prosperous Health
Your words are powerful. Speak God’s Word and you won’t go wrong. Don’t simply remind yourself of His Word. Get serious, stir yourself up, and start quoting, praying, and confessing scriptures and tell your body to line up with the Word.
Proverbs 12:18 says that “the tongue of the wise is health.” Why does it say that? Because just a few chapters later it says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” (Proverbs 18:21)
So choose to speak wisely and stop dwelling on the problem.
Speak Prosperous Health
Search the abundance of God for His healing benefits:
- He sent His Word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. (Psalm 107:20)
- Do not forget My teaching, but keep My commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity. (Proverbs 3:1-2)
- I am the Lord that healeth thee. (Exodus 15:26)
- Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; Who healeth all thy diseases. (Psalm 103:2-3)
Thank God for His healing benefits and begin to use words like these as your own. And remember divine health comes from spending time with the Healer.
Prosper Physically, Spiritually, and Emotionally
Just because spiritual things are more powerful than physical things doesn’t mean you can ignore the physical body. Trying to separate spirit, soul, and body can’t be done. They all work together to make up you.
You are a spirit, who has a soul, that resides in a God created body. Ignoring one part is disastrous. It is important to strike a balance in your life so that you use what is in you physically, spiritually, and emotionally to live a complete and prosperous life.
Ignoring a part of you creates an unhealthy balance. Eating anything the flesh wants would be neglecting the body. Allowing anything into your thought life and failing to renew your mind with God’s Word would be neglecting the soul, which is the mind, will, and emotions.
Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Well you can have a testimony of the miraculous healing power of God. His Word covers all sickness and disease and is more credible and powerful than any family medical history.
God is omnipotent and He knows no limitations. Put His Word to work in your life.
Some food for thought: Your body will do what you tell it to do. What you put in your mind, spirit, and body all affects your body. So, if you are searching for divine prosperous health, then you need to get a balance; spirit, soul, and body.
May you walk in prosperous health from the abundance of God and enjoy a life of growing prosperity!

Healing Hand Of God by Jeremy Camp – Live Christian Music Video
“Healing Hand of God” by Jeremy Camp – Live Music Video
“Healing Hand of God” by Jeremy Camp
from the album “Speaking Louder Than Before”
Jeremy Camp performs his song “Healing Hand of God” live on Air1 radio.
“Healing Hand of God” Song Lyrics:
I have seen the many faces of fear and of pain
I have watched the tears fall plenty from heartache and strain
So if life’s journey has you weary and afraid
There’s rest in the shadow of his wing
I have walked through the valleys the mountains and plains
I have held the hand of freedom that washes all my stains
If you feel weight of many trials and burdens of this world
There’s freedom in the shelter of the Lord
I have seen the healing hand of God
Reaching out and mending broken hearts
So taste and see the fullness of his peace
And hold on to what’s being held out
The healing hand of God
I have touched the scars upon his hands to see if they were real
He has walked the road before me he knows just how I feel
When you feel that there’s not anyone who understands your pain
Just remember all of Jesus’ suffering
Cast all your cares on Him for he cares for you
He’s near to the broken and confused
By his stripes our spirit is renewed
So enter in the joy prepared for you
“He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.”
— Psalm 147:3
“For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”
— Isaiah 57:15

Manifest a Life of Abundant Prosperity – Are You Ready to Overcome Your Paralyzing Fear?
Why Not Walk in a Spirit of Power and Receive All GOD’s Richest Blessings?
takes faith and courage.
It requires positive action and
much energy and effort.
One of the main factors that prevent people
from reaching their dreams is the ‘fear factor.’
Fear contains a paralyzing power that stops us
in our tracks if we let it.
“If we let it” is the key here. Fear only has power as long as we allow it to.
Why Not Overcome Your Paralyzing Fear and Walk in God’s Richest Blessings?
How many more times are you going to let fear keep you from speaking up, taking action, moving forward, and receiving all the blessings of life that God has waiting for you?
The fact is, we are all human and everyone is inevitably afraid of something.
Fears can develop from almost anything such as; spiders, to going bald, to confronting a person, to speaking in public. Fear creates panic, it torments, and it causes timidity and a shrinking back. Fear is a thief and steals our confidence and dreams.
Know this: Fear does not come from God.
“For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
— 2 Timothy 1:7
Fear is a powerful spirit and we too often allow it to control areas of our lives; and it is also something the devil likes to use against us.
Think about it: How many of the troubles in your life are tied to fear? We worry, we let people control us, and we try to control others and circumstances all because of fear. We get in wrong relationships for fear of being alone. We get greedy and stingy for fear of being poor. And the list goes on and on.
The Paralyzing Spirit of Fear Has No Place in the Life of God’s Children
We can begin to conquer fear by confronting it and facing it step-by-step. When we confront fear, we turn the tables and start to master it.
“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
— Franklin D. Roosevelt
Choose today to stop saying “I’m afraid,” and start saying “I have a spirit of power, and love, and a sound mind.”
Over and over God tells us to “Fear not.” And He wants to be our partner in helping us conquer and overcome paralyzing fear.
God knows we are going to deal with fear regularly. We are going to come face-to-face with it and have feelings of fear. But, it does not have to control us. Each time we confront fear, it becomes smaller and smaller and loses its power.
Confidence to Manifest a Life of Abundant Prosperity
The opposite of fear is faith. Faith, confidence, and courage all go hand-in-hand. Fear drives failure and faith drives confidence.
You can do amazing things with strong faith and bold confidence. Why? Because both of these carry a positive energy and a powerful force that will propel you toward your dreams.
Press on toward your goals and do those things you fear. Do what you need to do, even if you have feelings of fear. You’ll create a bold confidence as you create a successful series of experiences behind you.
The bottom line: Hope for a successful tomorrow is possible as long as rising fears are immediately stomped out and faith is allowed to rule. Replace your fears with bold confidence and faith in God and yourself, and watch the abundance of God manifest in your life.
May you overcome paralyzing fear and manifest a life of abundant growing prosperity!

10 New Year Resolutions to Renew Your Spirit!
Simple Resolutions to Enrich & Revitalize Your Life
Why not make this year’s resolutions ones that
will enrich and revitalize your life?
If you find there are a million things you intend to do,
but somehow you forget, procrastinate, or
just plain run out of time, I know how you feel.
Sometimes the simplest things are…
the hardest to accomplish.
When you evaluate your to-do list and priorities
this new year, move the things that enrich your life to the top of the list.
Clear out what you can when it comes to those things that drain you, and make simple resolutions that will renew your spirit. Even though they may be difficult to commit to at times, the results will definitely be worth the effort.
10 Simple New Year Resolutions to Revitalize Your Life
(You’ve probably already heard them a thousand times, but they still work.)
1. Read the Bible cover-to-cover this year. Keep a helpful Bible study resource handy to get you through those difficult reading points that may cause you to lose heart.
2. Volunteer your time and talents. Reach out to others through service in community and church based organizations. Be a blessing to your neighbors by serving them in some way.
3. Heal broken relationships. Forgive those whom you need to forgive. Don’t allow unforgiveness to hold you back any longer. Forgive and allow peace to rule.
4. Read a classic book. Enrich your life through some of the classics that you may have yet to experience such as C.S. Lewis, A.W. Tozer, Jane Austen, Shakespeare, etc… And don’t let reading be your excuse now that so many books are available on audio.
5. Make a monthly date night with your spouse. For those of you who are married, dedicate at least one day a month for a special date time with your spouse. Take a day to give your spouse the intimate attentions he or she deserves and enrich your marriage.
6. Pray daily. Bring your thoughts, praises, concerns, and requests to God every morning (at least). Stop trying to live life all by yourself. Talk to God and He will listen attentively and respond specifically.
7. Take a vacation. To many people never take vacations, but a time of refreshing is very important. Even God rested on the seventh day!
8. Renew relationships. Contact a friend or relative you haven’t heard from in a long time. Relationships are important to God and they should be important to us.
9. Visit a museum. Why not? There is a museum for just about everything. Revitalize your life by sparking a long-forgotten interest.
10. Share the Gospel. It is what we are here on earth to do. Make it a priority this year to share the Good News and show your concern for the spiritual welfare of those you come in contact with.
The New Year is a gift from God and a fresh start.
May you start strong, revitalize your life and experience growing prosperity!

Will Christian Meditation Benefit My Life Long-term or Short-term Only?
Know What to Expect from Christian Meditation
a daily habit in every believer’s life.
Through meditating on God’s Word
we gain understanding, knowledge, and wisdom to live a successful and prosperous life.
Christian Meditation Short-term Benefits
The Word of God provides nourishment to our spirit, soul, and body. Just as one meal of food will not nourish and sustain us long-term, neither will one session of meditation on biblical truths.
Give us this day our daily bread. Why? Because God wants us to seek Him and walk with Him daily. If He gave us our monthly bread, think how many of us might wait until the next month to seek Him!
Meditation on God’s Word is a way to draw us closer to the Lord and strengthen our relationship with Him. We would not expect to continually know a person better after spending time with them only once.
Faith also comes from hearing the Word of God. But faith does not continue to grow from hearing only once. Take a look at the following verse and you will notice it says “hearing and hearing.” This is an ongoing process.
“Faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God.”
— Romans 10:17
The world we live in is busy and chaotic and constantly bombarding us with negative thoughts and images everywhere we go. Do you think this is a surprise to God? Of course not; He warns us not to be conformed to this world. This requires renewing our mind daily with God’s Word. (Romans 12:2)
Christian Meditation Long-term Benefits
Now that you understand the importance and need for daily meditation, and that the benefits are primarily short-term; let’s take a look at long-term results.
The Bible is the divine Word of God. It is living and powerful. (Hebrews 4:12) The scriptures are also full of “suddenly” verses. Meditating daily on His source of divine, living, power, sets us up for a suddenly.
Your life can change in a flash when the “suddenly” hits and the eyes of your understanding are opened. A transformation can take place in an instant that lasts a lifetime.
God also rewards obedience. And meditation on His Word is a commandment for all believers. Obedience to the things of God should be at the heart of every believer. The result is the manifestation of many blessings in our life on earth.
The ultimate long-term benefit, of obedience to God, is eternal rewards in heaven. (2 Corinthians 5:10)
Whichever way you want it: Christian meditation practiced out of a love and obedience for God has the power to benefit your life short-term and long-term; even eternally.
Why not commit to making meditation on God’s Word a priority in your life?
God bless you,
Self-Confidence – Do You Possess the Essential Success Power of Believing in Yourself?
Renew Your Confidence Energy Level Daily!
powerful energy that will help you…
succeed at whatever you do.
A lack of confidence hinders success.
Believing in yourself and building yourself up regularly will provide great rewards in life.
Speak Well of Yourself
How do you know if you lack confidence? Listen to how you talk. What do you say about yourself to yourself?
Pay attention to how you are speaking and strive to always speak well of yourself. Others may say you are egotistical, but that’s not true. We are simply being imitators of Jesus and He didn’t speak badly of Himself.
Others will try to influence us to say negative things about ourselves because they don’t believe or understand us. But we should be like Jesus; who spoke well of Himself, even on the bad days, because He knew who He was.
Confidence in Who You Are
Do you know who you are? Have you grasped the understanding that if you are a child of God, that God lives in you? He has put a tremendous amount of ability inside of you.
Too often we look at our exterior and think only of the limitations of our brain and body. However, God looks at our spirit. And He has given us a big spirit. It is our spirit that is made new and so big that there is plenty of room to house the God of more than enough!
Confidence will come when you know who you are in Christ. That confidence will spill over into your speech.
Energy Boost for Confidence and Success
Do you want to be successful, stay motivated, and keep up your momentum? Then be one of the people who speak well of themselves.
Renew your confidence and energy level by speaking what the Word of God says about you. Speak out loud to yourself and in front of the mirror if you need to. Do it every morning and continually renew your mind to the thoughts God has of you in His Word.
Give yourself a charge and build your confidence level up regularly. Refuse to believe the lies and give them no place. Don’t let things like “I can’t”, or “I’m just this or that…” come out of your mouth.
Believe in Yourself
Whatever you do, build yourself up about it and you’ll do a lot better. When you have confidence, others pick up on that positive energy and are drawn to you.
Believe in who you are and the abilities you have been given. Speak well of yourself to yourself. Don’t let the lies rule your thoughts when you have a bad day. Remember, double-minded people can’t be confident because they are too busy trying to figure out what they believe.
“Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.”
— Matthew 12:25
If you are inwardly divided, you can’t give out the positive energy that makes people want to be around you. Confidence exudes strength, energy, and a joy for life.
Truth is: It is easy to be confident when you know that the almighty God lives inside you. You can be a light to the world. Believe in yourself and the God who lives inside you, and move forward with unwavering confidence in His vision for your life.
May your self-confidence grow daily and your life be filled with 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!
