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

How To Manifest A Miracle

I hope this really inspires you…

I hope this really encourages you, builds your hope, and increases your faith…

All too often, people have a problem…maybe its money, health, or a relationship…

And they start dwelling on what they DON’T have and what they THINK they need.

They GENERATE a lot of unpleasant feelings as they dwell on these things.

They think they need someone to give them some money.

They think they need a better doctor.

They think they need a different husband or wife.

Actually, they don’t really need any of these “needs”. These are all SECONDARY “needs”. These are all DERIVATIVES of the PRIMARY NEED…

The primary NEED is to be in right relationship with God through Jesus Christ and to obey God rather than men.

Let’s explore…

Most people know about the scripture that says, “But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33)

There’s a BIG difference between knowing ABOUT something and KNOWING something.

That’s why it’s so important that we spend significant time STUDYING they Bible and SEEKING the truth’s Jesus said are HIDDEN from the carnal person.

Now, we’re ready to go deeper…

Let’s look at the Biblical account of Jesus’ first miracle in John chapter 2.

Verse 3 says, “They have NO wine.”

So, right off the bat, we see a LACK problem. We find that there is a significant need.

What about you? Do you have a LACK problem? Do you have a significant need?

Do you – like the people in this story – have need of a miracle?

Well, God is a God of miracles…but miracles are at the END of the line…not at the FRONT!

Witness verse 5 that says, “Whatsoever he saith unto you, DO IT.”

Uh oh…there’s the real clincher…YOU HAVE GOT TO DO SOMETHING FIRST!

That’s why I say you don’t need someone to give you money. You don’t need a better doctor. You don’t need a different husband or wife. YOU NEED A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST WHERE GOD WILL SPEAK THE WORD TO YOUR HEART AND MIND OF WHAT YOU NEED TO DO.

It’s AFTER you start DOING whatever it is that God speaks to your heart to do that the miraculous can occur.

But, you’ve got to DO what God tells you to DO with FULL PASSION AND INTENSITY.

In verse 7 we read, “And they filled them up to the brim.” The servants in this story didn’t half-way fill the pots that Jesus commanded them to fill. THEY FILLED THEM ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP. They put all they could into what they were doing. They went all the way.

Now, AND ONLY NOW, do we finally get to God’s part…

Verse 9 says, “and knew not whence it was”.

Somewhere, between DOING their part of filling the water pots and taking them out to the wedding party the miraculous power of God took over the work of their hands and blessed it – and the water became wine.

Right now, do you know how God is going to work everything out in your life and in your situation?

In most cases, the answer is, “I don’t have a clue”, right?

But, that doesn’t matter…as you DO what the Lord has told you to do THEN, AND ONLY THEN will the miraculous come out of that which is unseen and unknown BY US – BUT WHICH IS FULLY SEEN AND FULLY KNOWN BY GOD!

It’s true!

It really is. This is how it works.

Get a close look at verse 11, “This beginning of miracles did Jesus…and MANIFESTED FORTH HIS GLORY”


Do you realize that?

Can you really, truly, fully grasp that God really does want to do the wonderful and miraculous in your life?

But, it’s about YOU and God…just the two of you.

You don’t need something from someone else. You don’t need other people to do something or give you something.

Right now, God isn’t the least interested in someone doing whatever it is that you think they ought to do or that you want them to do.

Right now, God isn’t the least interested in someone giving you whatever it is that you think you want them to give you.

Sure, when God ultimately performs the miraculous, it will probably involve other people that God has orchestrated to be a part your blessing…

But, like I said, that’s all SECONDARY AND INCIDENTAL to the primary thing…

You having the kind of relationship with God where He will speak to your heart what He wants YOU to do and you OBEYING His voice.

That’s what it’s all about.

Moreover, as you are DOING what God has spoken to your heart to do, inevitably you’ll be helping and blessing other people.

That’s a good thing…

“Whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:8)

When you fully get this concept of you doing your part so that God can do his part, your life will never, ever be the same.

It will never be the same because you’ll no longer waste time waiting around for a miracle.

You’ll never again sit around unhappy because someone else isn’t doing something or giving you something.

Instead, you’ll quickly start seeking whatever it is that God wants you to do and you’ll do it as unto the Lord, knowing that in the unseen and the unknown, the Power of God will begin working to bless abundantly that which you are doing…and you’ll proceed with full confidence, with full faith that THE MIRACULOUS IS GOING TO HAPPEN in due process of time.

Don’t be bothered by how small your start is.

Don’t let the small scale of things right now frustrate you when you can envision things on a much grander scale.

Scale is God’s business not yours.

When God is ready…when God has got YOU ready…then He will scale things up to bigger proportions. You don’t have to worry about that.

All you have to do is OBEY and DO whatever it is that God speaks to your heart to do. Everything else will be taken care of by God.

Isn’t that wonderful to know?

Doesn’t that release a lot of pressure off of you?

Can you step into the freedom of LETTING God lead you by speaking to your heart what it is He wants you to DO?

Can you relax into the peace and joy of knowing that as you do your part, God will do His part?

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!

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:http://www.christianmastermind.com/)

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!

You Be The Success Coach Today…

Sometimes, a person can help themselves the most by turning their attention away from their own situation and giving thought to another person’s situation and considering what the other person could do in order to be more successful.

In doing that, it’s amazing how new ideas and new realizations come to one’s mind for their own situation.

So, with that, I present to you an email that a woman sent me and I’m asking you to consider her situation and leave a comment below based on your thoughts and suggestions.

If you’ll participate and contribute a comment, I believe this could really be educational for everyone.

Here’s her story:


“I am desperate and even more than advice my family needs money. So I would like to know what you would do in my situation.

My husband works very hard. I am a stay home wife/mom. We have four children, 13, 10, 3, and 21 months. I am home because even if I worked, most if not all of my check would go towards child care for my two toddlers.

We have done credit counseling and was advised to file bankruptcy. We don’t have enough money left from our day to day living, to pay off bills. Well we can’t even afford to file bankruptcy! We need 900 dollars for that, and don’t have it.

I have an ebay store and I blog and it seems as though everything we try, we can’t get a grip on things, and still can’t pay our bills. We don’t have credit cards and our credit is so bad we have to pay cash for everything anyway.

We have a family friend who hit a 14 million dollar lottery and gambled it all away at the Casino. Why? My husband and I just want to be debt free and be able to buy a house for our family, and not have to worry about where the rent and grocery money is going to come from.

If we were blessed with 200,000.00 dollars you can best believe we would make the most of it, including helping who we can with what we can. There are rich people who bet that much money on golf games.

Do you know of any who would help a family like mine? Where are the millionaires for Jesus that would take a family like mine and give us a chance for a brand new start?”

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?

Avoid the Fade-Out to Failure…

I’ve come to learn that rarely is it a cataclysmic blow-up that knocks people off the road to success. No, it’s something much softer and subtler. I’ve watched it happen over and over…

A person interested in greater success knows they need to do certain things in a certain way. So, they begin their journey towards success by doing them.

Sooner or later, they experience resistance. Eventually, they experience a bit of failure – those things that don’t work. Along the way, they experience a few embarrassing hits to their ego. And of course, they experience the setbacks and the hardships that pave the way to greater success.

And, it’s not very much fun.

They know about successes’ requirement for persistence and growth – and certainly, they want the greater success – but it’s just that the bumps along the road to success aren’t very enjoyable.

Then, it happened in a gradual sort of way (usually), they started doing less and less of what they knew they should be doing. The procrastination set in. The busy-work started. More research was needed. Things started stalling out. Eventually, they just gave up.

The odd thing was, in the big scheme of things, none of the bumps in the road – the difficulties, obstacles, and of course, the disciplines – none of them were THAT BAD! It wasn’t like every time they did what they were supposed to do they lost a hand or a leg. It was just that it wasn’t fun, they didn’t enjoy it, and because of that simple lack of enjoyment, they allowed (i.e. drove) themselves off into the ditch. They quit!

Of course, those who become Millionaires For Jesus take a very different approach. One of the very best articulations of this different approach came from the great boxer Muhammad Ali who once stated:

“I hated every minute of training. But I said, don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.”

And that’s what he did.

Could you do it?

Could you free yourself – for the requisite time – to put up with a few things that you don’t enjoy in order to become a Millionaire For Jesus?

Could you avoid the fade-out to failure?

Did You “Inadvertently” Miss Your Success-Step?

Over and over, I hear people blaming “catastrophe” as the reason they’re not successful.

Huge mistake!

Every single bad, negative, undesirable, unwanted event that has ever happened in your life is a stepping stone to your success.

Those bad things that happen contain in them the strength and the education you need to achieve, to accomplish, to be, to do, to have.

Listen to successful people tell their stories of how they got started. Go read the biographies and autobiographies of successful people. What you’ll discover is that their success was almost always born out unfavorable circumstances.

It’s the same with you.

Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple Computer has an estimated net worth of $4.4 Billion (according to Forbes). Read about Steve’s background and his life catastrophe’s by reading this: Steve Jobs Commencement Speech. As you read, ask yourself this question, “Prior to his spectacular successes, would I have wanted to trade places with Steve?”

What matters is where you’re going. Those unwanted events that have occurred (or are occurring) in your life are what you needed (or need) to get you where you’re going. They’re exactly the blessing you need so that you can now become a Millionaire For Jesus.

How to increase your income…

Ultimately, you want to reach that position where dollars are working for you instead of you working and trading your time for dollars.

Trading time for dollars is not very leverageable.

There just isn’t enough time for you to get to the scale and level where there is big money. Even if you do get to the point where you are earning big money for your time, you will find that your time is so consumed that you can’t enjoy the fullness and goodness of life.

In the meantime, while you are transitioning away from trading time for dollars, it helps if you can increase the number of dollars you can get for your time.

Becoming an expert is how you get more dollars for your time.

Here’s how you can become an expert in as little as two (2) days:

Day 1

Step 1

  1. Go to your Central Library
  2. Go to the department that has the Periodicals Back-Issues
  3. Find the periodicals that pertain to whatever topic you want to become an expert in

Step 2

  1. Now, go to the Research Department
  2. Find the computers with the Research Databases and log on
  3. Go to the EBSCO Database (which is a database of scanned articles from thousands and thousands of periodicals) and select the categories that pertain to your area of interest
  4. Search for the title of each article
  5. Click on the article title. Don’t read the article. Instead, click the email link and email it to your home email address.
  6. Do this for all of the articles that you found in the periodical back-issues that looked promising.
  7. Now, do a more general search for ANY articles that pertain to your area of interest.
  8. Email all of the articles that look promising to your home email address.

Go home and get rested up for Day 2

Have you ever been discouraged and frustrated?

I received the following (slightly paraphrased so that it can apply to everyone) from a Brother in Christ:

I have stopped working on becoming a Millionaire For Jesus because it isn’t happening and I don’t understand why. My vision is to bring thousands and thousands of people into the Kingdom of the Lord which is why I need the money – not to put in the bank but to decrease the devil’s kingdom.

I myself have felt this same frustration, disappointment, and discouragement expressed by this Brother. If you are human, you have felt it too.

But here’s what we have to keep in mind:

Never, ever “stop working on it”!

Constantly say with your mouth and visualize in your mind, “I am used of God in a mighty way and I lead thousands and thousands of people to Christ“. (I am using what this man wanted in this example. Feel free to adjust this to be exactly what you want it to be).

Getting frustrated at not “seeing” results “when” you want to see them is the very thing that undermines your faith and causes you to lose out on the very results you want to see.

You bring “failure” into your life when you base what you say, think, feel, and believe upon external “circumstances” and “facts“.

God never said what you see or touch is TRUTH. He said His WORD is TRUTH.

Words are non-tangible things.


Christ said He is coming back – WORDS – He’s not back yet, but we know that He is coming back because He said the WORDS!

God has made things to operate in exactly the same way in your life. The TRUTH is NOT that you don’t have the money to decrease the devil’s kingdom (again, using this man’s example).

The TRUTH, as it applies to your life, is what you CHOOSE to say, think, and believe – no matter what external circumstances look like – AND GOD WILL TURN IT INTO TANGIBLE REALITY.

Your job is to see the goal / vision, hold to it with relentless faith, plant and water when and where you can, AND LET GOD BRING THE INCREASE.

In Hebrews 11:1 we read about “the evidence of things not seen”. We have to fully understand that ABSENCE OF EVIDENCE IS NOT EVIDENCE THAT YOU CAN’T HAVE OR WON’T GET WHAT YOU WANT!

God is telling you that you get to CHOOSE what you want, and that the ability to MAINTAIN a mental picture of what you want is all the EVIDENCE you need for the thing to beMANIFESTED.

You must not let the fact that something isn’t happening control your thinking. You must not let your external circumstances control you. What you MUST control is your thoughts – in terms of focusing on what you want.

You must rest assured, calmly, confidently, expectantly, that what you want is on its way – it just hasn’t yet made theTRANSFORMATION from the non-physical picture that’s in your mind to the physical reality that surrounds you.

Have you ever been surprised when you got something you wanted? That wasn’t faith because true faith is never surprised. True faith is expectant. And, when it MATERIALIZES, you are thankful and grateful – but never surprised.

Also, you bring failure into your life when you can’t see HOW and get frustrated. You don’t have to worry about the HOW. God will take care of that part. Your job is to simply hold with the WILL-POWER that God has given you to the vision / goal that youCHOOSE.

Another snare that brings failure, is trying to FORCE the solution or answer to your vision / goal to come from a certain person or in a certain way or by a certain means. Don’t do this! Again, simply hold to the vision / goal of what you want and let GodMANIFEST it how He wants to and by whatever means He chooses.

Think of this: If you were to sit down in front of a rose bud and watch it for an extended period of time, it would completely bloom and unfold right before your eyes – and you would never see it move.

The same concept applies to your vision / goal. You just keep “seeing“, “saying“, and “believing” for your vision and even though it may “look” like nothing is happening, rest assured that it is.

See, the process is “invisible” to us (He’s the “Invisible God“). We get so hung up on the “outcome” and the “end result” such that we FORFEIT the vision / goal because we get frustrated during the process and we give up.

Look at every miracle that Christ performed in the Bible. In EVERY case, Christ spoke what He wanted – not what was or used to be.

Christ is our example and we must do what He did.

Brother or Sister in Christ, God is going to use you in a mighty, powerful way to build up and expand His Kingdom. Your desire is good and right so stay encouraged. Keep the faith. Don’t let the enemy steal your dream. You can do it. I know you can do it. God is for you and if God be for you, who can be against you!

Comments? Thoughts? Was this helpful? I would love to hear back from you.

The Waiting Strategy

In Mark Chapter 2 we read a story of four men who wanted to see their friend helped…

And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four. And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay. When Jesus saw their faith…

  1. These men weren’t going to wait around for something to happen.
  2. These men weren’t going to be put off by obstacles.
  3. These men weren’t looking for reasons why they could not get what they wanted.
  4. The knew that Jesus was where their help was at and they TOOK ACTION on what they knew.
  5. Jesus didn’t respond to the need or the problem.
  6. It was when they took action that Jesus “SAW their faith” and responded.

Taking your Knowledge, Experience, and Abilities and WAITING is a strategy that DOES NOT work.

Taking ACTION based on the Knowledge, Experience and Abilities that you do have right now is a strategy that DOES work.

If you want to become a Millionaire For Jesus, you must take action.

For those of you who have been following my articles for a while, what action have you taken since the last time I wrote about taking action?

If you haven’t taken any action, notice that your financial situation is no better than it was the last time I wrote about taking action.

Take the leap of faith and take action now. Your only regret will be that you didn’t take action sooner.

In 2 Kings Chapter 3, we see a story about the army of Israel besieged by the Moabite army and the Israelites have no water. Finally in desperation they call for the prophet Elisha. He tells them, if you want water, you have to dig ditches all through this valley that you are in. AFTER they dug the ditches, THEN God sent the water.

Is your bank account on the “dry” side? Grab hold of faith and belief, take action and get to “digging your ditches” based on the Knowledge, Experience, and Abilities that you have right now. Once you’ve done your part, God will do his part. At the same time, God won’t do His part until you do your part.

If you want God to work in your finances, you’ve got to take action. The waiting strategy won’t work.

1 Corinthians 3:6 reveals to us, “I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.

Now, we know that this setting of scripture is referring to winning souls to the Kingdom of God. But, at the same time, it reveals one of the laws of God. Action is required on our part before God will do His part.

God has given you Knowledge, Experience, and Abilities. He tells you to have faith in Him to work through you. For Him to work through you, you must take action.

2 Corinthians 1:19 let’s us know, “For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

How is God to get glory from you if you won’t take action?

Go to prayer. Let God lead you. Listen to God as He talks to your heart and then take action on God’s prompting.

The waiting strategy doesn’t work.

Are You Guilty of These Two Loves?

Here’s the first love that will break you…

Proverbs 21:17 – “He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man

If you “live for the weekend” – you love pleasure.

If you find yourself constantly buying “trinkets” and “doo-dads” and “stuff” that you don’t really need but it makes you feel good to buy them – you love pleasure.

If you constantly go from TV to videos to the movies and back to TV – you love pleasure.

Are there other pleasures that you find yourself loving – that are causing you to be a poor person?

Here’s the second love that will ruin you…

1 Timothy 6:10 – “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

We can either love money or we can love God. It’s impossible to love both. Matthew 6:24 tells us this, “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Here’s the problem. When you love and want and crave money above all else, you are on a track to absolute ruin. When money is your first consideration and God, family, or people are your second consideration, then you are on a track to absolute ruin.

Think of it like this. Throughout the entire Bible, we get repeated glimpses of God’s unfathomable wealth, riches, and splendor. But, no where in the Bible will you find anything about God loving His wealth, riches, and splendor.

What you will find over and over is that He loves people.

He loves you.

He wants you to love Him back.

And in fact, it’s when you and I love God above all else that everything else will start working for us.

Consider these two key verses:

  1. Romans 8:28 – “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God
  2. Matthew 6:33 – “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Make sure your love is focused on the right thing – on God!

A Warning For Men

Stay with me to the end now because the following may be having a huge LIMITING impact on your ability to grow and increase your WEALTH

Matthew 5:28 – “But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

Jesus did not tell us not to lust after other women just because He didn’t want us to have any fun. He told us this because He wanted the BEST for you and I and because He understood the severe consequences of lust.

What are the consequences?

Well, there are actually quite a few consequences described in the Bible. However, we are only going to concern ourselves in this setting with the one that pertains to MONEY.

Let’s take a look…

Job 31:1 – “I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid?
Job 31:9 – “If mine heart have been deceived by a woman, or if I have laid wait at my neighbour’s door;
Job 31:11 – “For this is an heinous crime; yea, it is an iniquity to be punished by the judges.
Job 31:12 – “For it is a fire that consumeth to destruction, and would ROOT OUT ALL MINE INCREASE.

These scriptures make it clear what we are to refrain from:

  • Sexual fantasies about some person you aren’t married to
  • The advances of a whorish woman
  • Seeking a sexual relationship with someone you aren’t married to

Why? Because the consequences are two-fold:

  1. To do so becomes a mental wildfire that eats away at you until eventually you will start trying to act it out in reality and it completely destroys you, your home, your career, your life, and everything that is important to you.
  2. God’s curses your financial situation and removes your ability to achieve financial increase.

Am I talking to you?

Can you now see why your success has consistently been just out of reach and why you’ve never been able to get ahead?

Here’s the three-part solution…

Part one of the solution can be found in 1 John 1:9, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Get on your knees and confess your sin to Jesus Christ and ask Him to forgive you and cleanse you and to give you the power to overcome this sin.

Part two of the solution was in Job 31:1, “I made a covenant with mine eyes”. You must determine in your heart – you must make up your mind – that you are going to control what your physical eyes are going to look at and what your “mental” eyes are going to dwell upon.

Part three of the solution is to continuously quote to yourself Psalms 101:3, “I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes.

PUT AWAY the pornography.

PUT AWAY the TV and the movies with nudity, sexual themes and sexual innuendos.

I know that in our society, this can be a challenge but you can do it – you MUST do it – if you want your FORTUNE to INCREASE.

Instead, put your focus, your attention, and your attraction upon the companion you are married to and let God bless your LIFEand your FINANCIAL SITUATION.

Bottom line, don’t let your eyes and your imagination take away your fortune and destroy your life and everything that is really important to you. Rather, choose to be a Millionaire For Jesus.
