Considerations for 2013


You are to be commended for all the good that you have done … for opening yourself up to be a channel of God’s good and God’s blessings through you … over the course of the past year.

You are to be commended for having impacted certain people in a positive, up-lifting, and encouraging way.  Those people NEEDED that positive impact from you.  They REALLY needed it.  And God’s Spirit flowing through you … and you purposely being your best and most-developed self … enabled you to make that much-needed impact upon them.

You are to be commended for all the positive influences you have had in other people’s lives.  There were people who were going in a direction that was not good for them … but the love of God flowing through you … and your kindness, compassion, consideration, and care for them influenced them in such a way that they changed and began to move in a better direction.

You are to be commended for the important lessons you learned over the past year.  It was smart of you to look back over your successes and your failures … to look back over the good and the bad … and extract out the important lessons … so that you can carry them forward into the next year and use them in a way that makes the rest of your life … and the lives of those you interact with … better.

You are to be commended for all that you achieved and accomplished over the past year.  Achievement and accomplishment does not happen by accident.  It ALWAYS happens as a result of a person doing certain things on purpose.

You are to be commended for all the good choices and decisions you made … and for all the good consequences that have come and will come into your life as a result.

Now, let’s ask ourselves some personal questions and see if we can spot any opportunities for greater good in our lives…


Was 2012 more or less the same as 2011 … which was more or less the same as 2010 … which was more or less like 2009 … and so on?

These are the years of my life.  Am I satisfied with them?

Are they meaningful years?

Do I want more years just like them?

Are they years of growth, development, increase, and value?

Or, are they years of sameness, stagnation, and mediocrity?

To chart a trend, one only needs three “data points”.  What kind of “trend” does the last three years of my life chart?

And, if the trend stays the same, what are the next three years likely to hold for me?

Now, if after considering these questions I feel pleased with how my life’s journey is progressing, then I can acknowledge and appreciate that.

On the other hand, if after considering these questions I feel displeasure over the lack of progress in my life’s journey, then I must ask myself, “When and how will I decide to do things differently and better so that I can get different and better outcomes and results?

When will I make the commitment to invest the effort needed to make a real change in direction?”


The pattern of my life is a function of my meaningful learning’s, my meaningful efforts, my meaningful people-connections, and my meaningful value-offerings.

What have I learned in 2012 that was meaningful?

What effort have I invested in 2012 that was meaningful?

What meaningful people-connections have I earned, developed, and fostered?

What meaningful value-offerings have I created and presented to the world?


I have spent a LOT of money this year.  But the question is, what do I have to show for it?

Here’s another question … how much of that money was an investment in developing myself, my spouse, and/or my children in a meaningful way?

People who do well in life are continuously expanding and increasing what they are aware of, what they know about, what they can do, and the value they can provide.

People who do poorly in life rarely ever expand their awareness in a meaningful way, they rarely learning anything new that’s significant or meaningful, and they rarely offer anything of value to other people.


Time and life are irrevocably linked.  To value my time is to value my life.  To use my time wisely is to bless my life.

Here is an important question…How much of my time … how much of my life … have I wasted creating nothing and earning nothing … while WANTING those to who have created and earned … those who have learned and worked … to give to me?

The strategy of letting other people do the learning and work … of letting other people do the creating and earning … while WANTING them to give THEIR REWARDS to me … is a strategy that will keep me in a state of UNHAPPY WANT.


How well have I nurtured and protected my ability to influence others for God and for good?

There is a way to interact with other people that positions me so I can influence them for good … and there is a way to interact with them that destroys my ability to influence them for good.

If I choose to be the kind of person who holds no influence in the lives of other people … if I choose to live and operate at that level … then I render myself ineffective and I block myself from much good.


When I look at the overall message God conveys to His people in the Bible, I understand that He wants me to be in right relationship with Him.  He wants me to love people.  He wants me to be full of good works and right deeds.  He wants me to be in good health.  And, He wants me to prosper.  The little book of 3 John gives me an excellent synopsis of this truth.

What this means is that God does not want me living a restricted, constricted, limited, ineffective, or non-productive life that is non-fruitful or less than my best before God and man.

The fact is, God WANTS me to be fruitful and prosperous … both in relation to Him and in relation to humankind.

Those who loved me before they passed on … and those who love me now … do not want me living a restricted, constricted, limited, ineffective, non-productive life that is less than the very best that is possible for me.  Actually, they want the very best for me in every area of my life.

And certainly, those who follow along after me in my footsteps do not deserve the harm that would come to them if I were to live my life in a non-fruitful way that is less than my best before God and humankind.

So, in what ways have I been limiting myself?

HOW have I been limiting myself?

What constraints and limitations have I accepted that really do not exist anywhere except in my own mind?

What possibilities have I blocked out of my life because of how I represent things in my mind?

How am I imposing constraints and limitations upon myself that imprison me and hold me back from the greater good that should be a part of my life?

How much good are these self-defined, self-imposed, and/or accepted-from-others limitations costing me personally … and all the others that I love and care about?

What do I need to begin doing differently?

What needs to change so that I am no longer limiting myself?

Also, is there anybody in my life who I have been letting hinder and limit me?

Have I been letting the mindset and behavior of another person hold me back?

If yes, when will I stop giving this other person power over my life and define a new interaction with them that serves me better?


What am I doing that is affecting me adversely?

How am I doing things such that I am costing myself much good?

How am I behaving and operating such that I am blocking myself from the greater good that I want and desire?

Do I like costing myself good so much so that I choose to continue on as I have been?

Or, would I rather have greater good in my life to the point I choose to make the necessary changes?


It’s easy to go through life seeking entertainment and recreation while procrastinating on (or even avoiding) that which is important, meaningful, significant, and life-impacting.

Certainly, entertainment and recreation is needful if one is to be balanced and healthy … but a good thing over-extended … too much of a good thing … becomes unhealthy and destructive.

So, how much of my time, energy, and effort is devoted towards entertainment and recreation … and how much of my time, energy, and effort is devoted towards creating good, providing value, and making a positive difference in people’s lives?

These are important questions because I don’t want to be one of those people who spend and waste their prime years in the pursuit of entertainment and recreation.


How much of my time, energy, effort, and resources am I devoting towards trying to gain the recognition, attention, and approval of certain other people?

When am I going to realize that it is pointless, fruitless, meaningless, and detrimental to live my life in this way?

When am I going to stop giving away my life to other people?

God truly has a purpose for me … He purposely put me on this earth to do certain good works … to affect certain people in a good way … and if I am living my life trying to do what other people assert is right for me … instead of what I know is right between me and God … then I am thwarting God’s plan for my life … and that is NOT a good thing to do.


How, when, and where am I going to develop and foster new win-win, mutually-beneficial relationships?

How, when, and where am I going to contribute to other people’s lives so that other people are inspired to contribute to my life?

How, when, and where am I going to develop and foster new relationships where all of us are encouraged, inspired, and uplifted on a spiritual level, on a financial level, on a health level, and so on?

Here’s a way to find the gaps in my relationships so I know where I need to developing and fostering…

If I had to have 5 people who could and would willingly, enthusiastically, and authoritatively endorse me and vouch for me on a spiritual level, who would those five people be?

If I had to have 5 people who could and would willingly, enthusiastically, and authoritatively endorse me and vouch for me on a business level, who would those five people be?

If I had to have 5 people who could and would willingly, enthusiastically, and authoritatively endorse me and vouch for me on a health level, who would those five people be?

If I do not have at least 5 such people in each of the important areas of my life, then that is a major limiting factor in my life that shows and proves I am not providing sufficient value in other people’s lives … and if I want greater blessings in my life, then I must provide greater value to many people which will in turn attract those key, high-quality, high-value people into harmony with me.


Positive, significant, meaningful, and important experiences with other people are always more valuable and enjoyable than are mere possessions or assets.

There is zero happiness in having and hoarding money and other material possessions.  But, happiness and satisfaction is released when money and material possessions are used and shared for good with people I care about and who care about me.

So, as I go into the next year, what experiences do I want to have with other people?

Who will I use and share my money and assets with so that joy, happiness, and satisfaction is released in my life and theirs?

Having said this, resentment comes from giving to or sharing with those who choose to be users, takers, moochers, and beggars for no legitimate reason.  The ONLY thing one should offer to such people is the opportunity to EARN.


I do not watch others participate in life and wish I could win like they do.   Instead, I am an ongoing learner so I can participate and win.  I am an ongoing worker so I can participate and win.

To participate is to win. To not participate is to lose. That is why I participate … that is why I continuously ratchet up my skill by learning from everything … that is why I ratchet up my value by working intelligently and diligently … I am participating UNTIL I DO win.

I realize that many of the good feelings desired by the masses are on the other side of learning and working … and unlike some, I am willing to learn and work … which is why I enjoy many satisfying feelings.

Similarly, many of the possessions and experiences that the masses wish to enjoy in life are on the other side of learning and working … and my willingness to learn and work is precisely why I enjoy many wonderful possessions and experiences.

Those who are not happy … those who have not … those who are failing and losing in life will think I am weird and crazy for learning and working … and they will be quick to let me know what they think.  But, I pay them no mind because their results are NOT the results I want.  I want different and better results … which means I willingly do what they are not willing to do … and I purposely do what they disdain doing.

Of course, those who fail and lose in life “say” that they “work”.  But a closer analysis of their “work” reveals that they are like a disconnected windmill … the fan blades are turning … sometimes they are REALLY turning … but nothing much is happening in terms of producing something of value.


As I go into 2013, let me keep the following modified quotations in mind:

“I choose to keep a green tree in my heart so that I will always be able to enjoy the cool shade it creates and the music of the songbirds it attracts.”

“Some people will love me for who I am while others will hate me for the same reason.  So, I choose to be all that I can be so that those who love me have even more to love me for … and those who hate me will have even more to hate me for.”

“This is the beginning of a new day and a new year.  I have been given this day and this year to use as I will.  I can waste it or use it for good. What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.  What I do this year is important because I am exchanging a year of my life for it.  When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever.  When next year comes, this year will be gone forever.  In its place will be something that I have left behind.  I choose to make it be something good.”

“Every single human being is born with an equally incredible potential to do great and awesome things in their life.  I choose to be one of the few who actually does something incredible and great and awesome.”

“Most people look for what is bad, wrong, or offensive … and they usually find it.  I choose to be one of those few who are different.  I choose to look for … and find … what is good, right, and pleasing.”


How much am I appreciating the people who bring money into my life…whether an employer…or customers…or a spouse?

How much do I SHOW them love and appreciation?

It really is quite amazing how many people will despise, disparage, and vilify those who bring money into their life…and any person who does this should become aware that this is a proven strategy for CAUSING those people to STOP bringing money into their life.

So again, those who bring blessings, resources, money, wisdom, and understanding into my life…how much am I expressing and showing my appreciation and gratitude to them?

Is it enough appreciation and gratitude that they are motivated to continue pouring blessings into my life?

Make a mind-shift and make this year your best year ever…

We get so focused on what we are trying to get…that we forget about all that we have.

We get so focused on what we want…that we have no appreciation for all the good that is ours to enjoy.

We get so busy…we stay in such a rush…that we have no time to notice the smile of a child…the play of a puppy or kitten…the warmth of sunshine on our face…raindrops dancing on our skin…or the millions of other expressions of goodness and joy that surround us every day of our life.

We get so focused upon irritants…that we ignore all the good.

We loop old negative, unpleasant, unwanted incidents from the past in our mind…making the unpleasant and unwanted real to us again in the present…we give ourselves the “gift” of “enjoying” the unpleasant and unwanted again and again.

We imagine negative, unpleasant, unwanted incidents in the future…and thereby ruin the present…and create even more of that which is unpleasant and unwanted.

We have become very good at using our mind in a way that creates fear, anxiety, depression, and other unwanted feelings…and amazingly, we can create these unwanted feelings within our own self while mostly remaining unaware of how we are using our mind to do this to our own self.

This lack of awareness of what we are doing to our own self based on how we are using our own mind causes us to feel helpless and powerless…when actually, all we need to do is simply become aware of how we are using our mind…and choose and commit to using it in a better, more useful, more enjoyable way.

Thoughts ALWAYS precede feelings…feelings are the persistent after-effect of certain thought-patterns…therefore, good or bad, our feelings tell us HOW we are using our mind.

We need only select useful, enjoyable thought-patterns…and we can enjoy all the useful, empowering, pleasant, and wanted feelings we want.

Similarly, we have become very good at feeling sorry for ourselves…we have become very good at magnifying problems, inconveniences, or challenges…we REALLY know how to focus upon what we don’t have…or what we used to have…we REALLY know how to dwell upon certain disadvantages…so that we can justify ourselves in making foolish choices and decisions in the short-term…that will infallibly have painful, expensive consequences in the long-term…and we react to those self-created consequences by feeling even more sorry for ourselves….and justifying even more foolish choices and decisions…and if we don’t get hold of ourselves mentally and emotionally, we will stay stuck in this downward spiral until our life has become a total disaster.

We perpetually want our circumstances, conditions, and affairs to be different from what they are…creating great frustration and unhappiness within ourselves…and if we don’t purposely and consciously make a change, we will spend a lifetime feeling frustration and unhappiness.

Happiness really is pretty simple…

CHOOSE and COMMIT to not being offended at other people…especially your family and friends.

CHOOSE and COMMIT to ignoring the unpleasant and unwanted…and only give attention, interest, and energy to that which is pleasant and wanted.

CHOOSE and COMMIT to keeping your attention upon that which you appreciate and value…while ignoring that which you do not appreciate and do not value.

That which you give your attention, interest, and energy to GROWS in your life. That which you give no attention, interest, or energy to fades OUT of your life.

CHOOSE and COMMIT to enjoying the process of learning, working, and creating greater good…instead of foolishly wanting to skip the process and jump straight to the greater good.

Every GOOD thing you have ever wanted and obtained was the result of a certain process of RIGHT thinking, acting, operating, working, and learning. Every bad thing that has come into your life was the result of a certain process of poor thinking, poor-acting, poor-operating, non-working (or not-smart-working), and non-learning.

Similarly, everything that you ever will obtain…good or bad…will be the result of a good process…or a bad process…carried out by YOU.

And lastly…and most important of all…

CHOOSE and COMMIT to being in right relationship with God through Jesus Christ. ALL happiness, contentment, peace, joy, satisfaction, fulfillment, and meaningfulness is dependent upon and stems from us keeping our soul, mind, and body right before God.

God Will UNFAILINGLY Bless Your Future Too!

There is a lot to like about you. There is a lot about you that is impressive.

For instance, the way you live your life by the words that Christ repeated again and again…”Fear not!”

The way you do not let fear overtake or consume you…the way you give no place to fear…the way you reject fear when unwanted news, conditions, or circumstance come your way.

The way you stay relaxed and calm about the few things that are missing in your life…or that are in your life that you don’t want.

The way you just seem to continue working forward…doing your part…while trusting God for His very best blessings in your life.

And, the way you do this really has worked well for you because as you look back at certain times in your life, God has UNDENIABLY blessed you.

Even right now, there are UNDENIABLE blessings in your life…things you can look at and rejoice about.

It may be that you think of your life as a large number of “parking spots” that encircle you…

The Lord is right there in the middle with you…

There are a few “spots” that are “empty” that you would sure like for the Lord to fill up with certain blessings…

There are a few “spots” that have something in them that you don’t want in your life experience…

But, as you broaden your perspective…

As you look beyond those FEW “spots” in your life that are not as you want them to be at this time…

Then, it becomes EASY for you to notice, appreciate, and enjoy the MANY, MANY other “spots” in your life that are already filled up with God’s blessings.

Well, that must be why you don’t let fear overtake you or get you down.

That must be why you seem to always just “know” that God will UNFAILINGLY bless you in your future too.

Yes, there is a lot to like about you. Yes, you are impressive.

Past, present, and future, God’s blessings are always connected to you and your life.

God sees you every day and smiles.

He particularly likes the way you strive to live your life in a way that pleases and honors Him…and as He sees that, He can’t just smile anymore…He breaks out in Hearty laughter!

Can you imagine that? God looking down at you and laughing with pure joy over you…by the way you live your life holy, pleasing, and fearlessly before Him…by the way you maintain full faith in Him?

My friend, all I can say is that you must be some kind of wonderful…you really are amazing and incredible…the kind of person who can easily expect wonderful blessings to CONTINUE flowing into your life in a greater and greater measure.

How To Become Great

God has a certain wisdom that’s been stirring in your heart for a while…

Allow me to confirm that wisdom for you…

It’s NOT how much you have that makes you happy. And yet, so many people spend huge amounts of time and energy wishing they had more.

It’s NOT how much you get that satisfies. And yet, so many people spend huge amounts of time and energy wishing they could get more.

It’s NOT status and notoriety that fulfills. And yet, so many people spend huge amounts of time and energy wishing they were at a higher level and that more people’s attention was upon them.

It’s NOT having people look up to you with envy that brings joy. And yet, so many people spend huge amounts of time and energy wishing they were in a place of success that other people would envy.

And,  God’s wisdom stirring in your heart tells you plainly that all this “wishing” does you no good…and is in fact a block to you receiving your good.

So you ask: “What is it that does delight my soul?

And again, God’s wisdom in your heart reveals the answer…

It’s what you DO…that in some way makes the world a better place for certain people…and that in some way points those people to Jesus Christ.

You “know” all of this…because it’s God’s wisdom that’s stirring in your heart.

And in your desire to do good, you create much frustration for yourself that really is unnecessary.  Your carnal self rises up…overriding your spiritual self…

…and wants to do your good at a HUGE level…at a level where you have much…where you get much…where you have much status and notoriety…where people look at you with envy…

…and because you are at a level that seems to you to be rather humble and perhaps even meager…you feel very unhappy and frustrated.

But God, in His love and care for you…stirs again His wisdom in your heart…and reminds you…

All is well and all grows better.

Everything is right on time and right on pace with God’s perfect plan for YOUR life.

While it may be true that certain things don’t “feel” all that great right now…”faith” lets you know that God is creating and orchestrating great good RIGHT NOW out of your PRESENT circumstances and conditions.  Time will inevitably prove that your “faith” was the REAL truth.

God’s wisdom in your heart reminds you of Christ’s words in Matthew 25:  “thou hast been faithful over a FEW things,  I WILL MAKE THEE ruler over many things“.

And as you think about these words from Christ to you…you can realize that there’s nothing for you to be fretting about…there’s nothing to be worried about…there’s nothing to be upset or frustrated about.

All you have to do is this: DO whatever you can…right where you are at…with whatever resources you have…to make the world a better place for just one person…and while you are doing that, find some way point to point that person to Jesus Christ…and then do that again for another person…and another…

Soon enough, you WILL look around and find that GOD HAS MADE THEE a RULER over MANY THINGS!

Isn’t it a RELIEF to know that God will do the “heavy lifting” of “making” you great in His Kingdom?

And so, you can just relax now into this new year with complete peace in your heart, total faith and trust in God, and the full confidence to go DO your part.

As you do your part, God WILL do His part.

Success According To God’s Design…

I’m wondering, has it become the case that you so want things to be a certain way that you’re starting to become impatient and frustrated?

Even worse, is your over-anxiousness starting to move you towards wrong choices and decisions…in an effort to MAKE the good you want come to you faster?

My friend, you don’t “make” good come to you. Rather, you DO the right things that LET good MATERIALIZE in your life.

Maybe, after you finish reading this article, it would be a good time for you to open up your Bible to the story of Abraham and Sara and the mistakes they made…the pain they cost themselves…the trouble they caused themselves and others…trouble that’s still going on today…all because they were over-anxious to have the child God had told them He would give them.

Now, permit me to remind you of something…

God’s primary mode of operation is the Law of Sowing and Reaping…the Law of Seasons…the Law of Process…

YOUR business is sowing right thoughts and right actions so that you reap the good you desire.

And here’s the deal…there is ALWAYS an interval of time between the sowing and reaping. No person has ever planted something good and immediately harvested the fruits and rewards…never!

What is that period in the middle between planting and harvesting?

It’s the period of GROWTH, right?

It’s YOUR time for growth…it’s YOUR time to increase your capacity to provide value to mankind and your ability to bring glory to God.

So, when you ACCEPT God’s design of sowing…GROWTH…reaping, THEN life becomes much easier, happier, and enjoyable. There’s far less stress and frustration. You can just relax into knowing that your good is on its way…that it is materializing.

And besides…right now…during this period when YOU GET TO GROW…everything really is ok. Is it perfect and ideal? Probably not…but overall, you really are ok.

Now, let me make a slight shift…the sooner a person gets focused on sowing their OWN good, the sooner they can start reaping their OWN good.

Why am I saying this?

There are those people who both sow “bad stuff” in their own garden of life and they neglect taking care of it. But, when harvest time comes, they don’t want the LACK that their “LACK of good sowing” has produced.

So then, they look around and want some “neighbor” who has sowed “goodness and blessings”…one who harnessed and directed his/her mind and activities for goodness and blessings…one who put a lot of hard work into taking care of his/her garden of life…to give of his/her good harvest to them…even though they’ve done nothing to deserve or earn the good that the “neighbor” has worked so hard to produce.

In Matthew 25 we read about 10 virgins…all of them were good people…but five of them were wise ones who took care of their OWN good…and the other five were foolish because they “wanted” the wise ones to give them of their “good”…and they were instructed to go get their own good for themselves.

We each have to take care of our own harvest by first sowing and then growing into the harvest we want.

That’s the model the Bible gives us.

God’s Gift That Gives You Everything You Want

Are you aware that God has given you a special gift that has unfathomable potential?

Do you realize this gift God has given you is everything you need to get and enjoy all that you want to get and enjoy…this gift is everything you need to be able to help the people God wants you to help?

Did you know that when you accept and embrace this gift it brings you unending joy, happiness, and satisfaction?

Oddly enough, there are some people who have not accepted this gift from God…some have even went so far as to refuse this gift.

What is this gift I’m speaking of?

The gift of work…the gift of achieving and accomplishing…the gift of producing and providing.

Now, consider this…

Anything that a wealthy person does to create wealth a non-wealthy person can do too.

Anything that a person with money is doing to create money…well, a person without money could do the same thing to create money too.

But, they don’t.

It has to do with their perspective, their focus, their attention…and their willingness.

For example, wealthy people are concerned about being valuable…about creating and delivering value to other people.

That’s something that anyone can do.

But, non-wealthy people aren’t concerned about value…they’re concerned about just getting by. Or, they’re concerned about WHO is going to GIVE them what they want…and those are the people who are really suffering financially.

Wealthy people TALK to other people to FIND OUT what they would pay money for.

That’s something that anyone can do.

Wealthy people take what they LEARN from people and they creatively come up with a way to PROVIDE people with what they will pay for.

That’s something that anyone can do.

Wealthy people MARKET and SELL whatever it is that they’ve come up with that people want and will pay for.

That’s something that anyone can do.

Really, it is!

Right now, if you really put your mind to it, you could begin doing all of these things that wealthy people do. And, if you wanted to be smart about it, you could go to your local library, check out an armload of books and in a week or two, you’d have enough knowledge on these subjects to get started.

Literally, one to two weeks of study and research is all you need…the rest of what you need to learn you can learn AFTER you GET STARTED.

Getting started…that too is something that anyone can do.

But only successful, wealthy people actually do.

It’s interesting…successful, wealthy people became that way because they were willing to get started right where they were at with whatever resources they had. And, if you track back to the roots of MOST successful, wealthy people you’ll invariably find that that “where they were at” wasn’t exactly the greatest of circumstances…and the “resources they had” were quite limited…and THEY STARTED ANYWAY.

They started SMALL and through the GIFT OF WORK, their circumstances improved and their resources increased.

But strangely, non-wealthy people don’t want to start small. They want somebody to GIVE them several million dollars so they can start BIG!

Non-wealthy people want to go from a non-existent enterprise to an internationally recognized enterprise…they want to go from no resources to unlimited resources…and they want this to happen almost instantly…without any pain, embarrassment, or abasement on their part.

Thousands and thousands of people have told me that God called them to a ministry…and even though God “called” them, they are ready to give up and abandon their calling because they don’t know how to go from nothing to international…they don’t know how to go from nothing to unlimited resources…so they do little to nothing…except complain to people and God about how God called them but He won’t give them the resources they need…

But, He did! He already gave you what you needed. He gave you…

The gift of work!

STARTING HUGE is NOT God’s model of ministry or business. Go read your Bible…you’ll find that God’s model is ALWAYS about starting SMALL.

God’s model is always about YOU starting small…humbling yourself down…abasing yourself…so that God can make you great.

It’s in your Bible…from front to back!

We could use any great person from the Bible but let’s use King David. God “called” him to be King of Israel…David was literally anointed by God’s prophet to be the King of Israel and yet it was years before he actually reached that position. And, before he reached that position, the Bible recounts what a lowly, humble, and in several cases humiliating and embarrassing lifestyle David lived.

How many people do you know that are willing to humble themselves down to a small and lowly lifestyle so that God can bless and exalt them?

What about you?

There’s more…

In the case of David, the whole time he was small and lowly, he was busy WORKING, doing the best that he knew how to do before God and man.

This mindset that David had is revealed to us by his son in Ecclesiastes 2:14… “The wise man’s eyes are in his head“.

In other words, a wise person…a successful person isn’t looking around at what’s OUTSIDE of them and letting what’s OUTSIDE of them dictate what they can or cannot do. Rather, they are using their IMAGINATION to “see” good things and then they WORK accordingly to the best of their ability.

Maybe, that’s a shift in perspective that you need to make?

The gift of God…

Everything you want is dependent upon YOU embracing this gift.

All your hopes and dreams…

Ecclesiastes 5:3 says, “For a dream cometh through the multitude of business [much work]

Notice, the Bible doesn’t say your dreams will come to you through some person giving you a gift out of their bounty.

A person can continue to want someone else to give them their good…a person can keep looping on that strategy…but I don’t advise that approach because it only serves to keep your good pushed away from you. What brings your good to you is WORK.

But, don’t take my advice…take God’s…

Ecclesiastes 3:13 tells us… “that every man should…enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.

What “good” is your labor producing?

Consider that question carefully because all the good that which you wish to enjoy is dependent upon YOUR labor.

Work…it’s God’s gift…it’s God’s design…it’s God’s model…

Ecclesiastes 2:24 says, “There is nothing better for a man, than…that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.

When God Gets To Know YOU

Today’s message is unusual.

It’s what the Lord has laid on my heart to share with you today.

I trust that you’ll gain strength from it.

Forewarned is forearmed.

Let’s start with a few scriptures…

“Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.” 1 Corinthians 3:13

“for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.” Psalm 7:9

“O LORD of hosts, that judgest righteously, that triest the reins and the heart” Jeremiah 11:20

“I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.” Jeremiah 17:10

“and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.” Revelation 2:23

Now, with these scriptures in mind, here’s the message…

Anyone can stand tall and “think” they are strong when nobody is withstanding them or resisting them.

It’s easy to feel righteous, holy, and “powerful” when your spouse, children, family, friends, church, colleagues, etc are passively LETTING you be the “Big Boss”.

But, when these people begin to resist you…

When they begin to go against you…

When they begin to defy you…

When they begin to go away from you and away from what you want…

When they begin to let you down and fail you…

When they begin to turn on you…

When they begin to try to tear you down…

When they begin to find fault with you…

When they begin to criticize and belittle you…

When they begin to defame your name…

When they laugh and make fun of you…

That’s when you can really see of “what sort” you are.

That’s when you “learn” how your reins lie.

That’s when you find out what’s really in your heart.

And, while you’re battling with all this resistance and opposition…while you’re struggling to keep a smile on your face in spite of all the hurt and pain you feel, that’s USUALLY when others who “think” they are “standing tall” start JUDGING you.

While you’re being withstood, they start comparing how good things are for them and how “messed up” you and your situation is…and they judge themselves as better than you…they judge themselves as righteous and you as a sinner…they judge themselves as blessed of God and you cursed of God.

And, I CAN PROMISE YOU, if you wish to be a child of God, there WILL come a time in your life when this happens!

When that time comes, when you’re facing that pressure, LET nothing but LOVE AND THE LIGHT OF CHRIST come out of you.

When your carnal flesh wants to be angry and to hate, go ahead and just forgive them – just like Christ did.

And, for YOUR sake, I want you to do this too…

Come out of the experience more loving towards God and people than ever before!

Would you do that for YOU?

Now, I wish I could tell you that was all there was to God trying your reins and heart.

But, unfortunately, that was the EASY test. If you make it through that one, then comes the HARD test…


THAT’S when God REALLY finds out whether or not you love Him above all else.

THIS is when God gives YOU the chance to PROVE that you WILL have FAITH in Him, His love, His providence, and His desire to do YOU good NO MATTER WHAT.

And, it’s during this time that the devil talks the loudest in your ear. It’s during this time that the devil is telling you that God doesn’t care about you because if He did, He wouldn’t be letting this happen to you…that a “loving” God wouldn’t do this to you.

As this is going on, I want YOU to proclaim God’s certain blessings in YOUR life.

I want you to testify of God’s sure answers to YOUR prayers.

I want you to TELL YOURSELF about the inevitable fulfillment of God’s Word and promises FOR YOU.

I want you to WORSHIP and PRAISE God with your loving, positive thoughts and words towards Him and others.

And, know that you’re NOT the only person that this has happened to. It has happened to EVERY true child of God. In fact, we have the Biblical account of this happening to the man who introduced Christ to the world…

“Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples, And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another? Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and show John again those things which ye do hear and see: The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.” Matthew 11:2-6

My friend, don’t be OFFENDED in Christ when your time of testing comes. Instead, be CONFIDENT that after the time of testing God will raise you up, God will exalt you. You will be made triumphant and victorious and you will HAVE a POWERFUL testimony that comes from your heart that touches the heart of those you’ll tell it to.

Brother and Sister in Christ, be encouraged. Be strengthened in the Lord. He really does want to do you good. He just wants to know that you value your relationship with Him, that you will be faithful, loving, and true to Him regardless of circumstances and conditions.

And, once you’ve proven that, WATCH OUT! The blessings WILL FLOW into your life beyond your wildest imagination.

And, here’s scripture to prove the truth of what I just said…

For I [The Lord] KNOW him [Abraham], that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shallkeep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment;that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.” Genesis 18:19

Bottom line…

“Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But REJOICE…” 1 Peter 4:12-13

When the things I’m talking about come your way, don’t think it strange or bad. Rather, think of it this way: God is showing special attention to YOU because He wants to get to KNOW the REAL YOU.

Now, gain strength for your journey with this POWERFUL prayer…

I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.” Ephesians 3:14-21

Satan’s Oldest, Most Common, Most Reliable Trick…

This trick was first performed in a place you’re familiar with…The Garden of Eden.

This trick is still being performed in a place you’re very familiar with…INSIDE YOUR MIND!

Here are Satan’s specific steps:

1. Bring to your awareness what you DON’T have
2. Suggest that others are AGAINST you

That’s it. Those two little steps don’t look like much, do they? And yet, they work with almost unbelievable effectiveness.

They work so well because IF a person ALLOWS these two notions into their mind, then that person will also LET their mental faculties – faculties such as the imagination and selective recall – work against them…often until it literally destroys them.

Let me make this personal for you…

Specifically, if you permit these two notions to lodge in your mind (rather than outright rejecting them) then YOU will tend to blank out all the blessings and goodness they already have and possess to the point YOU start feeling as if YOU have been deprived of everything that’s good…that others have all the good but YOU’VE been cheated, short-changed, and treated unfairly.

Then, combine that with YOUR ability to “prove” whatever it is that YOU are thinking about…

So, if you are wondering if others really are against you…well, if you walk into a room and people look at you with a smile on their face, then “obviously”, they were talking “bad” about you and you “caught” them…

Or, if they don’t look up at you, then “obviously” they don’t care enough about you to even bother acknowledging you…”clearly”, to these people, not only are you unimportant to them, but they really don’t like you.

Do you see how this trick of Satan’s works?

Satan makes a couple of suggestions and if you aren’t actively managing, disciplining, and keeping your mind spiritual, YOU will begin to distort, generalize, and delete information…and it will eat on you and eat on you…and if you don’t get a grip on yourself, YOU will walk out of relationship and fellowship with God and YOU will destroy YOURSELF.

Let’s consider the Garden of Eden example… (you can read the full account in Genesis chapter 3)

First, Satan merely points out to Eve that she doesn’t get to eat of EVERY tree in the garden…

And with that one point, it doesn’t matter that they are living in a perfect paradise, it doesn’t matter that God himself comes to visit them every evening, it doesn’t even matter how many trees she has to eat from…

There’s that ONE tree that she doesn’t have!

And now, Satan ramps the NEGATIVE BENT that Eve is already on by pointing out something else that she doesn’t have…

She doesn’t have the same position, the same knowledge, the same power, the same wealth as God has…

Now, that just isn’t fair, is it?

And then Satan introduces the second element of his trick…

God is against you Eve…

God doesn’t want you to have everything that He has…

He doesn’t want you to have the benefits and privileges that He as…

He doesn’t want you to have the same glory that He has…

That’s why He doesn’t want you to eat from that ONE tree, Eve.

Eve, God isn’t being fair to you. He’s withholding good from you…

Now, we know good and well that God wasn’t thinking any such thing. We know that God wanted only the very best for Adam and Eve. We know for a fact that God GREATLY loved Adam and Eve. But that didn’t matter because in Eve’s mind, the ONE tree obviously “proved” that God was against her – that God was withholding the very best from her.

And with these suggestions firmly implanted in her mind, Eve did everything else necessary to destroy HERSELF. Unfortunately, she was persuasive enough to also destroy her family.

By accepting, dwelling upon, and ultimately acting upon these two suggestions from Satan – that there was something good she didn’t have and that others were against her – Eve moved herself OUT OF RELATIONSHIP AND FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD and brought great pain, hardship, and harm to herself.

Brother or Sister in Christ, Satan seeks to kill, steal, and destroy in YOUR life.

He seeks to give you these same suggestions too – so that YOU too will move YOURSELF out of relationship and fellowship with God and bring pain, hardship, and harm to yourself.

And so, I admonish you…don’t fall for Satan’s oldest, most common, most reliable trick.

Sure there are things you wish were different right now…

Sure there are things you’d like to have in your possession right now…

And at the same time, right now, at this very moment, you really are ok.

Any problems that you’re facing, God really WILL help you…things really will work out ok…even if you can’t see any possible way right now.

So, whatever you do, don’t let these things you desire come between you and God such that you end up moving out of relationship and fellowship with Him.

God IS for you!

God IS leading you in the way that you should go to profit!

Your good WILL come to you with perfect timing!

Opportunities Everywhere – But Only The Wealthy See Them…

If you’ve read my FREE eBook, “The Philosophy of the Happy, Healthy, and Wealthy“, you might remember that I stated there’s a reason the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer.

Hold that thought in mind…

It’s been suggested time and again by people of a certain mindset that money should be taken from wealthy people and “redistributed” to the poor.

And, when the wealthy hear this, they always chuckle to themselves because they know that even if something like that did happen, it would only be a matter of a few years until the money “redistributed” itself right back into their wallets and bank accounts.

How can this be?

Actually, it’s rather simple…the “normal” person…the proverbial 95% of people think primarily in terms of what they WANT.

They’re always wanting something…these are the people who LITERALLY spend their entire life dwelling upon some new thing they want, lusting after what they don’t have.

To these people money is nothing more than a means to get something they want and they forever want more money so they can GET more stuff.

They are SELF-INTERESTED CONSUMERS. Their vision, perspective, and awareness RARELY opens up to anything outside of themselves.

The other 5% of people…the wealthy minority…well, they want more money and more stuff too…but that’s not what they think about the most…what the wealthy think about primarily is…

“How can I and how WILL I provide INCREASED SERVICE and VALUE to a select segment of people so that I am duly rewarded and compensated for that increased service and value?”

To people who think primarily in this way, money is a means to provide increased service and value to an increasingly larger segment of people so that their rewards and compensation can be increased as well.


Here’s what you must realize…


And so, even if some government agency took the money away from the providers, the consumers would literally hand it right back over to the providers.

Do you understand that?

Good…because your wealth depends upon you understanding that.

In fact, pause right here and ask yourself, “Do I primarily think about consuming or providing? Which way do I mostly think about using money?

Now, this brings us to why the poor think there is a scarcity of opportunity while the wealthy see opportunity everywhere.

For those people in the 95% group, they’re thinking primarily about what they WANT…

Which leads them to thinking about how to GET more money so that they can GET what they want…

But all they can see is that wealthy people have “all” the money and they don’t know how to “get” the wealthy to “let go” and “share” some of their money with them…

And so, it appears to 95% of people that there is a scarcity of opportunity.

In contrast, those people in the 5% group, they’re asking themselves how they will provide increased service and value and get rewarded for it.

And so, they look around at what other people are wanting…

They look around at all the places where money is being spent…

And they ask themselves questions like, “Given what’s wanted and what’s being bought and sold in this specific situation:

1. How could I create or buy the supplies, raw materials, or resources that are required cheaper than what they currently cost?

2. How could I sell more of the service or product to more people faster or more conveniently?

3. How could I enhance the value of the service or product so that it can be sold at a higher price?

As you well know, it’s not hard to find inefficiencies and waste…

It’s not hard to find opportunities for improvement…

And so, the wealthy LITERALLY see OPPORTUNITIES EVERYWHERE. They see so many opportunities that their biggest challenge is deciding which opportunities they want to take advantage of and which one’s they should let pass on by.

And, the way they decide is by comparing each opportunity to their purpose in life, to the potential for reward and compensation, to the effort and energy required, and the potential impact upon other initiatives they already have underway.

Now, go back and take a closer look at #1, #2, and #3 above. Realize that individuals have EARNED vast fortunes by finding and implementing an answer to just one of these three questions.

And those who find and implement answers to all three questions? Well, they are the wealthiest of the wealthy.

Ok, here’s your homework assignment…for the next week, every time you spend money, turn on your curiosity mode, consider and analyze the overall business situation in which you are spending money, then ask yourself the three questions above.

I’m confident you’ll be amazed at just how many opportunities there are all around you.

Now that you know this, guess what?

Now, it’s up to you to watch closely for the right opportunity and then implement.

Now, it’s time for you to expand your horizons and your awareness and transition beyond a mere consumer and become a member of the wealthy provider club.

It won’t happen over night. You’ll make plenty of mistakes. There’ll be some suffering. You’ll have to make some sacrifices. People will laugh at you, make fun of you, tell you that you’re not very smart, and that you don’t have what it takes. And, it’s all ok because you’ll end up wealthy…enjoying the goodness and fullness of life that God has for you and making a far bigger difference in the Kingdom of God.

How can I become more prosperous?

If you were to ask me, “How can I become more prosperous?”, here’s some of what I would tell you:

  • Remember to ALWAYS let God be your strength and consider Him in everything you do.
    Be an entrepreneurial, successful, positive, high-value, low-maintenance person so that you can have entrepreneurial, successful, positive, high-value, low-maintenance friends / colleagues.
  • High earners are HUGE action takers, excellent relationship builders, and excellent connection makers. They have the contacts, relationships, and active connections that are benefiting their own and others bank accounts. They got this way ON PURPOSE because striking key relationships is one of the best ways to increase income.
  • Create, produce, implement or provide something that’s of value to others. Now, find a way to improve it. Then, improve it yet again. Next, create, produce, implement, or provide something that’s complimentary to the first thing so that you have two things to offer to people. Keep on repeating this process.
  • It’s PARAMOUNT that you make changes for the better. Get serious. Do things differently. Step outside your comfort zone. Stretch your wings and fly. Connect with people by phone, letter, or best of all, face to face. Put yourself out there – not as a beggar but as a value-provider.
  • Up to this point, YOU have REPEATED a set of tasks and procedures – YOU have operated your own little methodology or system – all of which produced the income level you now have – all of which you’ll need to improve, enhance, upgrade, and add more features, functions, and capabilities to so that you can increase your value production if you desire to increase your income level. This is true whether you work for yourself or someone else.
  • Here in the US as well as in some other countries, a nation’s wealth is measured by its “Gross Domestic Product” (GDP). GDP is a measure of the total market value of goods and services produced that nation’s citizens. It’s the income generated by the output of that country’s citizens. It’s the rewards for all the activity and performance that’s of value to the citizens of that country. And, how much GDP grows from one period to another is a strong indicator of that nations economic health. Guess what? This same concept applies to the personal, individual level – your income IS a MIRROR of your “Gross PERSONAL Production” (GPP).
  • Your “Gross Personal Production” is a matrix of these three things:
  1. Offering and selling existing products or services to people who are new to your world.
  2. Offering and selling something new and wanted to an interested audience who is already a part of your world.
  3. The systems of action, accomplishment, achievement, and completion – systems that create, develop, extend, enhance, convert, improve, and maintain items #1 and #2.
  • Your “Gross Personal Production” – the amount of money you receive – is in proportion to the size of your systems. More specifically, it’s in proportion to how expansive and frequently your systems make valuable offerings to interested people that convert into completed sales.
  • People have set up systems that generate a few hundred dollars (substitute your own currency for those of you outside the US) all the way up to several billion dollars per month. What is your system generating for you each month?
  • Let me say it this way… Money moves towards people and things of value. You can make money selling something of value that you own. You can make money selling something of value that you DON’T own but have the right to sell. To make more money, make more sales. To make more sales, give people – and more people – more opportunities to buy – purposely give them multiple opportunities to buy and give them calculated opportunities to buy multiple things. And always, always be building a customer list so that you always have someone to sell something to. All that you hope for is available for you to have and intelligent, applied, persistent effort and focus will surely abolish the obstacles that are between you and what you want. Be encouraged. We’re still in business for God and as out-of-control as circumstances sometimes seem, God’s still in control of all things.
  • Perhaps, this is a good time to ask the age-old questions: A) What must I begin doing? B) What must I do more of? C) What must I do less of? D) What must I stop doing altogether?

These things are work…they are something that’s out of the norm for you…there are things you don’t know or aren’t sure about…and that’s why many people aren’t prosperous.

The Two Things That ALWAYS Precede God-Given Wealth, Riches, And Success…

Today, I hope to really encourage you…

Today, I hope to help you understand what’s really going on…

Today, I’m going to give you some of the most important advice that ANYONE could ever give you…

Let me start by quoting an email – and I get emails similar to this by the boatload which tells me that there are a lot of people struggling with this same issue. Here’s the email…

“I asked from the Lord to make me a millionaire this year.

The pastor of our church prayed on December 31st 2007 that 3 people will become potentially millionaires in the church congregation because we realized that Jesus made himself poor for us to be rich. And also because he considers us as his spouse, so a spouse can’t be poor as we are nowadays.

After this prayer I believed in my heart that this prophecy was for me. My heart beats all the time since that day. Few months after the lord showed his faithfulness and I was receiving money I never expected to get. But I realized that the money I was receiving disappeared as soon as I was using the money.

I was faithful to God and paid my tithes and offerings. The Lord connected me to business venture and I even started to get involved in a multimillionaire company. I knew it was from God, but now I feel as if it is all going astray.

I’m stuck financially and still believe that God can make a millionaire in a miraculous way by the end of the year. My faith is strong as solid stone.

I never fainted but I am always positive although the circumstances. I believe in my heart I deserve to have that amount of money because I fear the Lord with all my heart. I pray for God to keep me under his wings. I hope you have a response to my prayers.

Ms. B”

Now, the specifics of your situation are probably quite different than Ms. B’s but can you relate to things just not working out the way you want them to?

Well, if you can, here’s what you need to know…

All is well…all is right on track…the good you desire is coming – if you faint not.

All these things that are happening and then seem to not work out are God’s way of educating you, of building you up, of “trying” you to see if you’ll hold to faith.

The Bible is given to us for an example and when we study it, we learn that there’s always an “Egypt” experience followed by a “Wilderness” experience. And, it’s only after both of these experiences that we get the “Promised Land” experience.

As you well know, God came to Moses in a burning bush and personally told him to go tell Pharaoh to let God’s people go.

That’s a pretty direct calling, wouldn’t you say?

And yet, Moses shows up in Egypt, does what the Lord tells him, and EVERYTHING GOES FROM BAD TO WORSE!

Have you ever had that experience?

Well, in Moses’s case, he does what God tells him to do and NOW he has all of Egypt hating him AND all of Israel hating him.

Then, after Moses and the Children of Israel finally do get out of Egypt, they find themselves wandering in the desert…wearing the same pair of clothes and shoes way longer than they wanted to…eating the same kind of food until they were sick of it…often wondering where their next drink of water was going to come from…

That’s a pretty serious thing…go without water for a few days and you’ll soon enough be dead.

Can you relate to being in an experience where you’re not even sure how you’re going to survive?

And yet, at the same time, God was doing amazing, miraculous things for them like giving them a perfectly climate-controlled environment via a cloud by day and pillar of fire by night, their shoes never wearing out, the money and resources to build an amazing temple for God, etc.

Look around you…in spite of all the things that aren’t exactly the way you want them…what are the amazing, unbelievable, surreal things that God has done – and is doing – for you?

Well, for the children of Israel – those who stayed faithful to God – there soon enough came a day when they crossed over into the Promised Land – just as God promised they would.

It’s all the same for you. You’re on your way…

You’re on your way to your specific Promised Land…

You’ve got to take a pit-stop at your specific “Egypt” first…

Then, you’ve got to pass through your specific “Wilderness”…

And, whether you’re in your “Egypt” or your “Wilderness”…

Everything’s fine right now…

It really is…

Sure, it may even look like you’re going to lose something that’s important to you in the near future…

But, as of this very moment, everything really is ok.

And amazingly, everything’s going to work out for the very best. You’ll see.

Believe it or not, you really are going to end up in your very own God-given Promised Land – if you’ll just keep holding to the dream.

As far as the timing of things…

One of the ordinances that God has set up is a “Gestation” period.

If you plant a seed, there’s a gestation period before the seed appears visibly as a plant. Because people have planted a lot of seeds, we know what the gestation period is.

If a woman gets pregnant, we know from experience, there’s a 9-month gestation period before she gets to physically hold the baby.

We understand this from the natural side of things. But for some reason, we want to ignore this – we don’t want to accept this – on the spiritual side of things.

The fact is, there IS a gestation period for “spiritual” seeds too.

The difference is that because it’s a spiritual seed – and you’ve never “planted” this kind of seed before, you don’t have enough experience to know exactly what the gestation period is.

So, just because you don’t yet see when, where, or how the money you believe for is coming doesn’t mean it’s not coming. It just means that it’s still in its gestation period.

And, there’s nothing wrong for believing for it to happen within a period of a year. But, if it doesn’t show up in a year, that just means you “misjudged” the gestation period a bit and it’s still on its way.

Now, the question you may be asking is, “Is there some way to speed up the gestation period?”

The answer is yes. It’s by doing two things:

One, it’s getting yourself a mastermind partner. A mastermind partner gives you extra insight, wisdom, knowledge, experience, perspective, and help – which makes it possible for you to achieve your success faster, with fewer mistakes, with fewer setbacks, and fewer losses. (Check out this website:

Two, begin to serve people on a greater scale.

Prosperity is equal to serving people in a meaningful way on a large scale.

Let me repeat that…

Prosperity is equal to serving people in a meaningful way on a large scale.

The greater one serves people, the greater their prosperity.

Too often, people think becoming a millionaire is about getting lucky in some way and a bundle of money falling into their lap with little to no effort on their part.

People who think this way will NEVER become millionaires because they’re not following God’s model.

People who become millionaires are people who LEARN to serve others in a meaningful, valuable way.

Think about that word, “learn”…

Learning is often a laborious, arduous, unpleasant journey (i.e. “Egypt” and “Wilderness”).

But again, this is where a mastermind partner can help you identify ways that you can provide greater service and thereby attain prosperity faster than you can by yourself.

So, as it pertains to the good that you desire, remember these key points:

  1. In order to receive God’s blessings, you must be WILLING to first pass through “Egypt” and the “Wilderness” and only then will God bring you into your “Promised Land”.
  2. Prosperity is equal to serving people in a meaningful way on a large scale.
  3. Have a mastermind partner.

Do you fully realize the incredible value and importance in what I’ve just shared with you?

Yes, I believe you do!

It’s Time for You to Start Being More UNreasonable…

You can’t always avoid seeing the unpleasant, the undesirable, the problem, the trouble, the negative, or the bad.

You can’t always avoid hearing about it either.

Sometimes, it even “hits home” – right in the middle of your affairs, conditions, and circumstances.


You don’t have to tune in to it.

You don’t have to accept it.

You don’t have to embrace it.

Open up your Bible and flip over to the 4 short chapters in the book of Philippians. Notice some of the amazing verses in there…

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it…

For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

The supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ.

God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of a good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Now really think about that…

Here is Paul the Apostle is in a Roman prison – and history tells us that these Roman cells were essentially sewage pits – and yet, he’s telling himself and us to think on NOTHING but GOOD things.

That’s what I’m talking about…Yes, Paul was in a bad situation but he wasn’t embracing it. He definitely was not tuning in to it.

In fact, if you weren’t really paying attention, you wouldn’t even realize from reading Philippians that Paul is in prison.

What about you?

What are you tuned in to?

What are you embracing?

If a friend were to call you up and ask you, “How’s it going?” what would come out of your mouth?

The truth is that the good you desire DEPENDS upon you living by Paul’s words, “if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

In other words, if there’s good in it, think about it. Dwell upon it. But, if there’s nothing good about it, then REFUSE TO GIVE IT ANY MENTAL ENERGY!

Don’t think about it. Don’t tell people about it. Just delete it from your mind and turn the focus and the attention of your mind to the good that you desire.

Now, some people say to me, “That’s not even reasonable!”

My response is, “You’re right. God has called us to be “unreasonable” when it comes to living our lives – because the person that’s living their life with their faith placed firmly in God does refuse and reject what they don’t want and firmly embraces their firm belief that God will bring about the Good that they desire – or something better.”

In reading the Gospels, you repeatedly find Jesus “getting on” to people because they weren’t being “unreasonable” enough to believe God for good in the midst of the bad.

It’s time for you to start being more “unreasonable”…the good you desire depends upon it!

No matter what your external conditions and circumstances…

Think the good that you desire.

Speak the good that you desire.

Act the good that you desire.

Today is a PERFECT day for you to start being more UNreasonable!

In Tough Times…

God’s people have been sailing through tough times for a long time…

Here’s some commentary on 1 Kings Chapter 17 that I hope you’ll find helpful and encouraging.

As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.

Ok, here’s a problem that certainly has a significant national impact.

And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, Get thee hence, and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan. And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there. So he went and did according unto the word of the LORD: for he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan. And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.

But, the Lord is CLEARLY taking care of Elijah.

And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land.

Now, here’s where we get ourselves in trouble.

When God lets a brook dry up…

When God closes a door…

When God shuts down a channel of supply…

We get MAJOR upset. We start thinking that God doesn’t care about us. And of course, the enemy is there to suggest that if God really loved us and cared about us, this wouldn’t be happening to us.

My friend, God doesn’t ever dry up, close up, or shut down anything without simultaneously providing something BETTER!

And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee.

See…I told you the Lord always has something else better for you.

So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering of sticks: and he called to her, and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink. And as she was going to fetch it, he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand. And she said, As the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.

Isn’t this so like us?

We had plenty to eat yesterday.

We’ve got something to eat today.

Yes, things may or may not be exactly what we want but as of right now, we’re ok, we’re good.

But, when we can’t see tomorrow’s supply we just naturally assume that we’re going to die.

Friend, God’s been taking care of people a long time and He’s going to take care of you and me too!

And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son. For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth. And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days. And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah.

Here’s your take-away point: in no way is God’s supply wasting away nor is His supply failing. God’s abundant supply is ever plenteous and ever available to you and me.

Yes, there are “lean” times and there are “fat” times – according to the cycle of seasons that God has ordained from the beginning of time – but that in no way means that God won’t take care of us.

Here’s Where The Money’s At…

In light of the current economic crises and the news media’s endless shouting of troubles, problems, failures, unrest, doom and gloom…

Today is a perfect day for me to remind you…

The Lord is your source and supply – He always has been, always will be – and God’s abundant supply is independent of and in spite of any world, national, regional, or local condition or situation.

Let [men and women] trust in the name of the Lord, and stay upon [their] God.” Isaiah 50:10

Contrary to what the enemy of good is constantly suggesting (remember, he’s out to steal, kill, and destroy wherever he can), it pays to live your life trusting in the goodness and supply of the Lord because…

He that putteth his trust in the Lord shall be made fat [blessed and successful].” Proverbs 28:25

In all the noise, commotion, and chaos coming from the world, have you kind of forgotten this?

My friend, God’s calling to you…

O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. O fear [love, respect, and reverence] the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear [love, respect, and reverence] him. The young lions [covetous and greedy people of the world] do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.” Psalms 34:8-10

Have you ever waited out a rainstorm from underneath a dry shelter? That’s what it’s like for the person who’s in right relationship with God through Jesus Christ…

I [the Lord thy God] have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand.” Isaiah 51:16

Isn’t that wonderful?

Nevertheless, this IS a time for you to be careful and wise.

The crown of the wise is their riches: but the foolishness of fools is folly [trouble and problems].” Proverbs 14:24

This IS a time to put away foolishness…

The foolishness of man perverteth his way: and his heart fretteth against the LORD.” Proverbs 19:3

What does that mean?

So many people are looking for great gain – without providing a corresponding level of value and service to mankind. It’s this kind of foolishness that perverts people’s life – and then they find themselves fretting against the Lord because of all the trouble they’re in – that they put themselves into.


But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.” 1 Timothy 6:9

This verse isn’t talking about money being a bad thing – money is nothing more than a medium of exchange for goods, services, and value – and providing value and service and being compensated and rewarded accordingly is an indisputably God-ordained principle and concept.

What this verse is talking about is people TRYING TO LIVE BEYOND THEIR MEANS!

People driving automobiles that are more expensive than they can really afford.

People who live in homes they can’t really afford.

People who are “upside down” in all or most of their financial affairs.

Do you see that?

It’s also talking about people who WANT A LOT FOR SOMETHING LITTLE.

That’s what’s been going on strong for a long time – especially the last 15 – 20 years…

Individuals, corporations, and even governments handing over any extra money they can scrape together to OTHERS (the stock market, etc) and telling them, “Make me rich – without any real effort or rendering of service on my part.”

As we can see and hear all around us, this doesn’t work on a long-term basis.

The only reliable, sustainable, and God-ordained way to turn a dime into a dollar is to take that dime and infuse it with your God-given creative mind, talents, abilities, and skills such that it provides a REAL dollar worth of value and service to people.

To their own misfortune, too many people are trying to just get a dollar out of a dime.

So again…

Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.” Proverbs 9:6

One last thing…

This IS a time to make sure there’s nothing but Jesus – nothing but good – inside of us…

For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: all these evil things come from within, and defile the man.” Mark 7:21-23

Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.” Romans 8:9

And, if we have the Spirit of Christ inside of us, then we also have available to us…

The supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ.” Philippians 1:19

My friend, God’s way is the good way! It always has been and always will be.

Here’s what I want you to hold in your thoughts as you go about your day…

  1. Let’s go back to trusting in God as our source and our supply
  2. Let’s get in right relationship with God through Jesus Christ
  3. Let’s put away the foolish notion of wanting a lot for a little and start providing real value and real service and thereby EARN real compensation.

If You Want To Be Big (A Lesson on Mustard Seed Faith)

Lots of people have read about mustard seed faith (Matthew 13:31-32, Matthew 17:20, Mark 4:32-32, Luke 13:19, Luke 17:6)

Lots of people like to talk about mustard seed faith.

Few people who are willing to BECOME mustard seed faith…

Few people are willing to “go backwards” when it comes to material things. Few people are willing to let themselves, their circumstances, their finances, or their lifestyle become small so that God can make and grow them into something big and fruitful.

God has ordained things to start out SMALL.

Often, things start out EXTREMELY small.

In nature, a seed is planted. It’s so small and insignificant. Compared to the full-grown “giants” that are all around it, it’s hard to imagine that this one little seed even matters – let alone that it could ever make a difference.

But, the seed doesn’t concern itself with such burdening, limiting thoughts.

It just begins the germinating process by absorbing miniscule amounts of moisture and nutrients from the soil that’s around it.

Compared to the resources of the surrounding “giants”, the resources of the tiny seed is almost laughable.

But again, the seed doesn’t waste it’s time making such non-useful comparisons.

By drawing upon that which is available to it with the small strength that it has, it soon enough starts a root. Now, it’s a little bigger and has a little more strength. Now, it can draw a little more moisture and it can draw even more nutrients from the soil.

It doesn’t worry about what others around it are doing. It just keeps doing all it can do with all it has available to it.

Before long, a sprout pops out of the ground. Now, it can draw on even more resources such as sunshine.

Eventually, the little seed becomes one of the “giants” that contributes to the eco-systems of nature in a major way.

This is the way of God. This is how God has ordained things to work.

Do not be afraid of becoming small.

Do not be afraid of people seeing you in a low estate.

Do not be afraid of moving into a position where you’re now the “least”.

For in doing so, you place yourself firmly into the hands of God so that He can make you one of those who are among the “greatest”.

If You’ve Been Feeling A Little Down Lately…

It may be that you have times when you forget all that you have on your side…

And all that you have going for you…

And you start thinking you’re all alone…

That you’re trying to do all this good stuff by yourself…

And nobody is helping you…

Let alone caring about you.

If you’ve found yourself thinking these kinds of thoughts lately, let me remind you; the enemy of all good wants to distract you and get you off course so that you’ll miss out on your good.

Let me also remind you of the REAL TRUTH:

It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.” Psalms 18:32

When I was a young man, there was one summer where I worked for an outfit operating heavy equipment – large tractors and bulldozer’s. I can remember being amazed at the incredible power these machines possessed.

All I had to do was wrap my hand around the throttle and give it a small forward movement and whatever was behind my tractor or in front of my dozer was moving – whether it wanted to or not.

And yet, as powerful as that equipment was, it was nothing compared to the power of God and the strength that He ENVELOPES you with, RIGHT NOW.

So implant this firmly in your mind, “It is God that girdeth me with strength”.

And, when you feel like nothing is working, when you feel like you’ve messed everything up, when it feels like everything is wrong and nothing is right…

That’s the absolute BEST time to remind yourself, “[God] maketh my way perfect”.

There’s more I want you to recall…

Thou [God] shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.” Psalms 71:21

Brother or sister, do you realize that God has put GREATNESS in YOU? He installed it in you and now – NO MATTER WHAT IT SEEMS LIKE TO YOU – HE IS INCREASING YOUR GREATNESS.

He just asks that you keep doing your best, that you keep moving forward, that you keep the faith.

Soon enough, you’ll find yourself being amazed at all the great things that God is doing through you. And, you’ll enjoy God’s comfort all around you as well as the comfort of wonderful people all around you.

Be encouraged. Things really are better than what you realize.

When God Sent Our Savior…

On that first Christmas, God sent His angels to announce the arrival of our infant Savior. At that same time, He had them remind you and me of His ever-consistent perspective towards us…

We can read it in Luke 2:14, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

All glory belongs to God.

Of course, you realize that God blessed you with all that innate talent, potential, and possibility that you have just so you could become the person, acquire the resources, and do the things that enable you to give Him glory in a way that’s unique to you – unlike what anyone else could possibly give Him.

It’s wise to always remember that.

And, God has even more He wishes to tell you…

He wants you to have peace. He wants you to have happiness. He wants you to have fulfillment. He wants you to have good relationships. He wants you to be in good health. He wants you to enjoy the goodness and fullness of life. He wants you to abound to every good work. He wants you to be in right-standing with Him through Jesus Christ. He wants all this because He wants peace for you.

It’s wise to remember that too.

There was one more especially important thing…

God wants to expressly, specifically, and directly point out that He has only good intentions for you – that His thoughts towards you and His workings in your life are all for good will towards you.

Sometimes, it doesn’t seem that way, does it?

Maybe you’ve experienced bitter disappointment in 2007. Maybe you prayed for and expected a certain thing – but you didn’t get it.

I MUST tell you…hold to your faith in God. All disappointments, setbacks, and failures are false illusions – a mirage if you will.

Yes, I know, when you’re beholding an illusion, it certainly seems real enough. But, as you go forward in faith, you’ll begin to see it disappear so that you can experience the reality and the truth of God’s goodness.

So again, go on in faith.

What if you still don’t receive it?

That’s when you let a HUGE smile break out on your face because the truth is, if you do not receive what you want, it’s because God has something so much better for you.

Sooner or later, you’ll come to see that the disappointments, setbacks, and failures were simply a prelude to a great victory or a great success in your life.

That’s why when things go awry, when things unexplainably fall apart, when it seems almost as if God Himself is working against you, do not be disappointed or upset. Do not begin to doubt God or question His goodness towards you.

Instead, give thanks to God for overriding your desires – for causing you to realize that your desires need to be bigger and grander – for His wanting a larger, more wonderful thing for you.

And then, when the goodness that God has for you shows up, you’ll be so happy that you DIDN’T get what you originally wished for.

You may not believe me right now. But, you’re about to find out for yourself that what I’m telling you is true.

One wise old gentleman looking back over the course of his life had this to say, “I thank God for every prayer He answered. I also thank Him for every prayer He DIDN’T answer because the ones He didn’t answer spared me from unforeseen trouble and grief.”

My friend, I sincerely wish you the happiest of Christmases. Also, I pray that 2008 will be your best year ever.

On the subject of useful perspectives…

Today, a person asked me the question, “Do you think that everyone has the same opportunities that you have had?” And then, indirectly, they asked me, “Do you think that everyone gets the same lucky breaks that you get?

I have to tell you… I’m always amazed at how strongly unsuccessful people believe that they get only the “UNlucky breaks” while simultaneously assuming that successful people must be successful because they get only the “lucky breaks”.

I’m fascinated by how they think that successful people have had it so easy and so good that they have no clue what it’s like in the “real” world for “normal” (i.e. unsuccessful) people.

In the Bible we find that it rains on the just and on the unjust.

In like fashion, lucky breaks AND UNlucky breaks happen to EVERYBODY!

That’s the simple, unvarnished truth.

What separates the successful from the unsuccessful is HOW they THINK about and WHAT they DO with BOTH the lucky and the UNlucky breaks.

In fact, having spent a lot of time with both successful and unsuccessful people my observation is that successful people have almost always went through far worse circumstances and situations than have unsuccessful people.

You don’t believe me?

While one’s level of money is certainly no gauge of whether they are successful or not, it will serve to illustrate my point. Go do a little background research on the Forbes 400 wealthiest people in America and you’ll find that most of them have been through gut-wrenching, heart-breaking circumstances that would cause many people to have a nervous meltdown.

And yet, when you listen to these people talk, you’d think they’d never had a bad break in their life – that everything was perfect and rosy for them…


That’s a part of why they’re so successful.

And, when you listen to the unsuccessful person talk, they tell you about how hard they’ve worked and how certain bad things have happened to them and how much they “deserve” a break…


That’s a part of why they’re so unsuccessful.

It’s a matter of perception…

Do you realize how critically important your perspective is?

The person who asked me the questions I quoted above also pointed out to me EXACTLY how many lending companies have gone out of business in the last year and how so many builders are going under and how no one is building homes. Their PERSPECTIVE was one that MATCHED and MIRRORED what they see, read, and hear in the news media.

In contrast, in a separate conversation with a successful person, he was talking about how much building he has going on and how he can’t even keep up with the demand and how he’s back-logged for easily the next year.

Incidentally, this person does NOT live in a “hot-bed”, “growth” area. He just does a really good job of marketing, sales, and customer service. When customers deal with him, they GET VALUE!

And, when I asked him of his opinion of all the bad news being broadcasted by the media, he told me, “I feel for those people who are going through all that stuff…but I myself don’t pay much attention to the news anymore…I used to…and when I did, my business would inevitably suffer. Now, I choose not to listen to all that and instead, I stay focused on doing all the simple, basic, and important things that I know I should be doing. And you know what? As I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing, my outcomes are 180 degrees opposite that being broadcasted in the news.

Friends, that’s POWERFUL!

That’s a USEFUL perspective, don’t you think?

Here’s Your World News Report…

There’s something I need to tell you…

The spiritual realm is important. It’s wonderful to enjoy a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Did you know that God has prepared other realms for you to enjoy besides that?

Contrary to what you see on television, hear on the radio, read in the newspaper, or hear from people around you…

The earth is full of the goodness of the LORD. (Psalms 33:5)”

Opportunity, abundance, wealth, riches, happiness, peace, loving relationships, wonderful friends, all of THE GOOD STUFF – it’s ALL there.

You may be asking, “Why did God create all this good stuff?”

You make me smile…


(If that’s not enough emphasis for you, then hear it in the words of a little kid; “It’s for you, dum-dum!”)

Maybe you’re feeling a little “poor” in all of this goodness. If so, I have some good news for you…

Thou, O God, hast prepared of thy goodness for the poor. (Psalms 68:10)”

Yes, all that other negative, nasty, yucky, unhappy stuff exists too…

It’s there for you to enjoy if that’s the sort of thing you enjoy…and many seemingly do since that’s what they devote all their time, attention, and energy to.

But what of the good stuff could you begin to enjoy right now? What of the goodness and fullness of life that God has created – just for you – could you begin to plan for its’ soon enjoyment?

If Fear Is Blocking You From The Good You Want…

So many people let fear of the “unknown” block them from the good that God has for them.

It’s unknown to them what will happen to them if they risk putting a little of themselves on the line for greater success. And so, they let themselves be blocked from the good they want.

It’s unknown what other people might say or do. And so, they let themselves be blocked from the good they want.

It’s unknown what they might have to do without for a little while or what hardship they may have to endure to enjoy greater rewards. And so, they let themselves be blocked from the good they want.

It’s unknown what the economy is going to do. And so, they let themselves be blocked from the good they want.

It’s unknown to them what…the list could go on forever.

Here’s what I want you to understand…

By recognizing that your fear is of the UNKNOWN, your fear becomes a KNOWN – which is all you need to know in order to break fears power over you.

See, by the simple act of noticing that you fear something unknown, you give yourself the ability to disassociate from it. If you’re able to notice it, you are able to separate yourself from it.

And, fear is not of God. Therefore, it’s not to be of you. Notice your fear. Disassociate from it. Move forward in faith.

Move forward trusting and knowing that God is a good God and that he has good intentions towards you and wonderful blessings that He is arranging for you to receive as time goes forward.

By the way, watch out for worry too.

Your imagination is just one of the many wonderful tools that God gave you to do good with – both for yourself and for others. Worry is what happens when you use this tool inappropriately to create, invent, and make up stuff to be in fear of.

Worry is another one of those things you can notice. And again, when you notice it, you can separate yourself from it. You can stop doing it. Then, you can begin to do something good with it – like God intended for you to do.

And, after you dissassociate and separate yourself from fear and worry, remember this: “The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear (Hebrews 13:6)” and this: “The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. (Psalms 118:6)”.
