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!

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.

Let’s talk about “Mustard Seed” faith…

I cannot count the number of people I’ve encountered who want someone ELSE (or something ELSE like the lottery) to give them their first million so that they can THEN go do something in the Kingdom of God.

Unfortunately for these folks, they either don’t realize – or don’t want to realize – that what they want doesn’t line up with God’s Word.

They are unaware that they are WORKING AGAINST themselves because they are trying to do things CONTRARY to God’s Word.

Consider these scriptures:

“Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: Which indeed is the least of all seeds: butwhen it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.” Matthew 13:31-32

“And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it? It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth: But when it is sownit groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs, andshooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.” Mark 4:30-32

“Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto shall I resemble it? It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into HIS garden; and it grew, andwaxed great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.” Luke 13:18-19

In these verses, we can see that things that are blessed of God START with something SMALL that is PLANTED in OUR garden (ministered in our ministry) so that God can bless it and cause it to GROW and BECOME something GREAT.

The problem is, many people are unwilling to humble themselves DOWN to the point where they can start SMALL so that God can do HIS work of GROWING something GREAT in their lives.

They FEAR what other people will think of them and in PRIDE they refuse to humble themselves to a “low estate”. And that’s such a shame because the rewards are HUGE for those who let go of their “people” consciousness and embrace a “God” consciousness.

That’s part one. Here’s part two…

Lots of people talk about these two verses:

“And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.” Matthew 17:20

“And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.” Luke 17:6

Now, I’m sure you can agree with me that lots of people want this kind of faith where they can just SAY, “Give me money” and money will come to them. But, as Jesus told us in Matthew 4:4 and in Luke 4:4, we’ve got to LIVE according to the entire Word of God.

What this means is that we need to connect the preceding scriptures of starting small with scriptures like:

“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.” Luke 6:38

“Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord” Ephesians 6:8

WHEN people make this connection, THEN they’ll have something that will REALLY WORK in their lives.

Here’s the thing; I don’t care who you are and I don’t care what you DON’T have…

EVERYBODY has SOMETHING – however small it may be – that they can give as unto the Lord – they have something they can plant in the Kingdom of God.

Which means; the sooner you start giving and planting, the sooner you start ministering in your ministry, the sooner you can SPEAK to that which you’ve given, planted, and ministered, the sooner God can bless it to become something great.

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”.

How Can I Be Successful Like…

Frequently, people ask me, “How can I be successful like [successful person’s name]?

Sometimes they ask it like this, “How can I be as successful as [successful person’s name]?

And, when they ask me this question, you can feel their frustration, you can feel their hopelessness, you can feel that they don’t believe they can attain the success they desire.

They feel this way because they stopped too soon. They asked one single question and because of how they phrased and positioned the question to themselves, there wasn’t an easy answer and now they’re stuck – and that’s why they feel the way they do.

My friend, you must get beyond limiting questions and learn to ask yourself empowering and enabling questions!

So, in response to their question, I might ask them a question back like, “How successful is [successful person’s name]?

They almost always tell me, “I don’t know” or “I’m not sure”.

Well, as you can already tell from my question and their answer, they don’t even know what their target is. They have nothing more than a vague, ambiguous, ethereal notion of what they want. They just know they want to be more successful.

No wonder they feel stuck, stumped, and frustrated. Trying to hit a target of “nothingness” is ALWAYS a maddening exercise.

The obvious point is that regardless of whatever level of success you perceive someone else to have, you must decide clearly and specifically what level of success YOU want.

But, let’s say they are clear on how successful they want to be. Then, I’ll ask them something like, “What makes [successful person’s name] so successful? In your study of them, what are the specific things that you have observed them doing that you believe causes them to be so successful?

Again, they almost always tell me, “I don’t know” or “I’m not sure”.

So now, we both know that really, their desire for greater success is merely an idle wish. They want “something” but they aren’t really serious about it. They aren’t serious enough about it to actually try to study and figure out how to attain the success they say they want.

Really, they just want something for nothing – and God never supports that model. There is always a sacrifice, there is always a price.

But, I’ll push forward and ask them to give my question some thought for a moment and see if they can come up with some things they “think” the successful person might be doing. And, now that they’re actually thinking about it, they usually come up with two or three things.

Now, I ask them, “Are these things that the successful person does – that you just told me about – are these things that at some level – maybe it’s to a different degree – maybe it’s on a different scale – but at some level, could you do these same things?

Usually, their answer is along the lines of, “Uhhhh, yea, I guess so.”

At which point, I usually ask them one last question, “Do you really want to be as successful as [successful person’s name]? If you do, then you now know what you need to start doing because if you do what they do, you’ll become as successful as they are.

Ask yourself empowering, enabling, thought-provoking questions.

Study success.

Take action.

Success is waiting for you.

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?”


What are your thoughts?

What’s this lady doing right and what’s she doing wrong?

How is she thinking right and how is she thinking wrong?

Where is her focus right and where is it wrong?

An Elaboration on Microsoft’s Marketing Secrets…

There are five key reasons why I believe Microsoft has been so financially successful.

1. Big, bold, aggressively pursued vision.
2. Aggressive recruitment of the smartest people
3. Drive and hard work by everyone
4. Creating win-win’s for businesses
5. Creating win-win’s for individuals

Let me now describe what I believe to be Microsoft’s marketing secrets to success. Because the first three are outside the realm of marketing, I’ll skip past them and start with the fourth one:

4. Creating win-win’s for businesses

IBM had a problem. They had a computer to sell but they didn’t have an operating system to drive their computer. And, their software people were telling them it was going to be at least two years before they could have a reliable operating system ready.

Being the sales-driven company that IBM was/is, all they needed was someone to provide them with an operating system and they could start selling personal computers right away – and gain the marketing advantage of being “first to market”.

That’s where Bill Gates came into the picture. He told IBM that he could provide them with the operating system they needed within 6 months – creating a win-win for both Bill and his dream and IBM for their goal of “first to market” personal computer dominance.

Now, IBM did make some “concessions” that seem foolish at this point. But, at the same time, the reason Bill Gates was able to get these concessions was because he really was creating a win for IBM.

On the flip side, Bill had to make several concessions too – and some of these could have really worked against him given the right/wrong circumstances. For example, Bill had to agree that when IBM had their own operating system ready, Microsoft’s DOS would be out and IBM’s operating system would be in.

From my perspective, IBM’s two big mistakes were: A) failing to realize the importance of the software side up front, B) arrogantly thinking that they could take over the software side when they were ready.

As history has shown, Microsoft out-implemented and out-executed IBM in the realm of personal computer software – because of the first three keys: vision, smart people, and hard work.

And, as history has also shown, where and when it made sense for them to do so, Microsoft has been incredibly good – far better than most – at creating win-win relationships with other businesses.

But, there was an even more important side to their marketing smartness…

5. Creating win-win’s for individuals

Prior to Microsoft Windows, the computers that commercial businesses used were big and the software that ran them was expensive.

In particular, the compilers and linkers needed to create software generally started in the $250,000 range and went up from there. Obviously, that meant that only businesses with deep financial pockets were going to be creating any software.

But then, Bill Gates came along and started telling people who were “tech-heads”, “Hey, I’ve got this new little operating system called Windows and I’ll make a deal with you…buy Windows and if you’ll buy it right now, I’ll sell it to you for half the listed price of $95 PLUS I’ll GIVE you a compiler and linker so that you can write your own software programs.

Within a year, men and women by the hundreds – maybe even thousands – were writing little software programs for Windows.

Then, Bill came back to all those people, and said, “Hey, that’s some pretty neat software you’ve written there…can I help you sell that?”

And the more Bill helped individuals create and sell their Windows-based software, the more copies of his Windows operating system he sold – and the greater his dominance became in the marketplace.

This is STILL Microsoft’s number one strategy for growing their business – and you can see this by looking at how and where they allocate their marketing dollars…their marketing budget is overwhelmingly focused on reaching tech-heads and helping them create and use more Microsoft-based or Microsoft-oriented software.

Just like with businesses, time has proven that Microsoft has been incredibly good at creating win-win relationships with individuals.

So, what can you do with all of this?

Consciously get past the tendency to think myopically and start to think bigger and broader in terms of creating win-win’s in as many places as you possibly can.

Begin thinking in terms of helping other people float their boats higher – which will cause your own boat to float higher.

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.

An Important Truth Known by the Wealthy…

There’s an important truth that wealthy people understand…

Not only do they understand it, they’ve done everything that’s necessary to make sure they are on the RIGHT side of this truth…

This truth is easy to understand. Here it is:

Those who do not promote, market, and sell both the value they themselves possess along with some useful product or service will ALWAYS be at the mercy of those who do.

Like I said, it’s easy to understand but only wealthy people have implemented this truth in their lives.

Notice the requirements: promotion, marketing, selling, possessing value, salable product or service.

To be truly wealthy (meaning that you can generate significant income in spite of other people, the economy, the stock market, or any other outside “tyrant”), you’ve got to meet ALL the requirements!

For example, if you’re working in a job, you obviously possess some value or your employer wouldn’t keep you on the payroll. But, because you aren’t meeting ALL the requirements, YOU’RE AT THE MERCY OF YOUR EMPLOYER!

Your employer decides what they’re going to pay you – not you. Your employer decides when you can get a raise – not you. Your employer decides if you’re eligible for a promotion – not you. Your employer decides what work you’re going to do – not you. Your employer decides where you’re going to work – not you. Your employer decides when you have to be at work and when you can leave work – not you.

No doubt, you could continue on with a lot of other things that your employer decides for you but the obvious point is that YOU are at the mercy of your employer.

In contrast, wealthy people DO NOT allow themselves to stay in a position where someone else makes their choices for them. Rather, they are ALWAYS working towards gaining more control over their choices so that they may ENJOY GREATER FREEDOM.

Plus, wealthy people have something exciting to get out of bed for…they get to “go to work” in an environment where they can give AND receive – where they can give value and receive just compensation for that value.

And, in the event that an unpleasant relationship crops up, wealthy people just FIRE that person – they eliminate them from their dealings – because there are simply too many good people to do business with to mess around with users, takers, trouble-makers, slackers, negativists, or any other kind of problem-person.

Now, let’s consider a couple of erroneous ideas that many people have…

Fallacy #1: To become more successful, a person must get an advanced education and obtain a higher degree.

The truth is that while a degree will usually open the way up to better opportunities (because you have increased your “value” to some extent) you are still yet at the mercy of others. In contrast, the person who has no university degree whatsoever but has developed a “street smart business savvy” by interacting with lots of people to find out what products or services they would readily pay for and developing the corresponding promotion, marketing, and sales skills to be able to pull it off will soon enough gain both personal and financial independence.

Fallacy #2: To become wealthy, a person has to invent something.

The truth is that being just an inventor will never make you wealthy. In fact, right now, there are thousands of people who’ve invented all sorts of interesting and useful things – and they’ll never get beyond poverty level. Why? It’s because money comes from other people – not from a product.

A product without an interested audience is worthless. In contrast, an audience of people who like you and trust you to bring them the products or services they want is worth millions or even billions.

That’s why wealthy people are always building and developing a network – an audience – of people that they have a positive relationship with – and that’s why they’re always asking questions of those people – seeking to find out what’s important to them – seeking to find out what they want. Then, they go find someone who has what their audience wants and resells it to them for a profit – or if they can’t find it, then they create it for their audience.

Ok, let’s look at this truth one more time…

Those who do not promote, market, and sell both the value they themselves possess along with some useful product or service will ALWAYS be at the mercy of those who do.

Maybe, as you consider this truth against your own situation, you realize that you’re on the WRONG side of this truth. Maybe, you realize that it’s now time to begin the transition over onto the RIGHT side. If so, right where you’re at, begin to learn what you need to learn, begin to develop the skills you need to develop, begin to build an audience of people who like and trust you. As you develop this audience, seek for product and or service ideas. Soon enough, you’ll move away from being at the mercy of other people and towards having independence and freedom – both personally and financially.

How To Create Affirmations That Work…

For an affirmation to work, it needs POWER…

POWER comes from God through Christ…

Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.” 1Corinthians 1:24

By the word of truth, by the power of God” 2 Corinthians 6:7

And, the Bible is this truth, this wisdom, this POWER packaged up in WORD form for our benefit…

The SOLUTION to any and every problem you’re dealing with right now can be found in the Bible.

You can have victory over your problems by using Bible-based affirmations…

Find those verses that apply to your situation and circumstances…

…and turn them into an affirmation!

Let me give you two examples derived from Acts 3:16:

“And [Jesus] through faith in His name HATH made [me] [???]”

“The faith which is by [Jesus] hath given [me] this [???]”

And, just so it’s clear, the ??? part is the polar opposite of your problem…the ??? part is the “good”, the “ideal”, the “outcome” you want.

Go ahead…try plugging in the polar opposite of your problem into one of the above affirmations and see if you don’t FEEL a spark of POWER in just saying it.

This is good…

And, I want you to let it get even better…

I want you to learn to talk to yourself just like Jesus would talk to you!

In Luke 13:10-13, we find a woman who was bound with a crippling infirmity that she’d had for 18 years.

Do you know what Jesus said to her when his path crossed hers?

He said, “Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.”

And immediately, this woman was made whole and she gave glory to God.

Could you use the PATTERN of Christ’s words in talking to yourself to create the same effect of victory in your life?

“[Your Name], thou art [???]”

Brother or Sister in Christ, you CAN use the PATTERN of Christ’s words in your life and His words WILL work for YOU too!

Of course, it doesn’t matter what you say if you’re constantly IMAGINING unpleasant, unwanted, and undesirable situations and circumstances. So, put away those negative thoughts.

Actively reject and eject any and every thought of what you don’t want from your mind. Give zero energy (fertilizer) to the undesirable – it may in fact exist at this moment in time but that doesn’t mean you have to give energy to it.

Instead, as you say your affirmation, IMAGINE yourself actually having, doing, being the good that you desire…IMAGINE yourself actively engaged with, in operation with, performing with, and using the good you desire even as you say your affirmation. In this way, you put good energy (fertilizer) into what you do want.

Bottom line, when you holistically think, talk, and act according to the principles set forth in the Bible, you’ll find that your life is a series of movements “from glory to glory”. This doesn’t mean there won’t be times of hardship and suffering – there will be. But, even in these times, we know that a greater victory is in the making.

How To Get Out Of Debt (And How To Stay Out Of Debt)

I frequently get emails much like this one:

Hello Millionaires For Jesus,

Without going into specifics, I need financial assistance. Before I can become a “Millionaire for Jesus” I need guidance on how to get out of debt. I am not looking for a handout. I need specific guidance to get out of specific debt until I can have controllable debt. Please advise.


Before I describe the process of eliminating debt, I first need to make sure you are fully AWARE of a certain choice you’ve already made – one that you may not have even been aware that you made it. The choice was to:

  1. Operate on credit (easy on the front-end, painful on the back-end)
  2. Operate on cash (can be unpleasant on the front-end, easy on the back-end)

This is a significant CHOICE to make – this is a WAY OF LIVING choice – a choice that will impact you for the rest of your life with far-reaching consequences.

Also, this is a choice that everyone makes no matter what level of income they have.

It’s a choice one makes to:

  1. Get immediate gratification and forgo greater future enjoyment
  2. Forgo immediate gratification and gain greater future enjoyment

Somewhere along the way, a person DECIDES which way they are going to live and operate.

After that, they just habitually live and operate that way.

Here’s the thing, nobody ever stops wanting. If a person wants ABC, as soon as they get ABC, they’ll begin to want DEF. As soon as they have DEF, they’ll want GHI.

So, when a person operates on credit, they can quickly and easily get ABC.

But, the price that MUST be paid in order to get ABC now is to pay two to three times more for it on the back-end over what ABC would have cost if bought with cash up-front.

And, because they are paying for ABC twice or three times, that makes it more difficult for them to get DEF.

And, if they do manage to somehow get DEF, they have now indebted themselves to the point they’ll never be able to get or enjoy GHI because they’re struggling just to get ABC and DEF paid off.

Here’s an example you can check out for yourself: a $200,000 home with a 30-year, 8% interest mortgage will end up costing more than $515,000.

When you look at this truth, you can realize that you aren’t paying 8% interest. In reality, you’re paying almost 200% interest.

How wise is that?

(Approximately 1/3 of a mortgage pays for the home and approximately 2/3 of the mortgage pays interest – that equals 200% interest. But of course, lending companies know that if they positioned their business in its true light, far fewer people would borrow. And so, they use an “amortized” approach so they can tell you that you are borrowing at “8%”.)

If you were to walk up to the average person and ask them if they would trade you one of their $5 bills for two of your $1 bills you know they’d say, “No!”

And yet, the average person frequently makes this same kind of foolish exchange with far bigger numbers that have far more negative and severe impacts on their lives.

In Luke 14:28, Jesus speaks of “counting the cost”. If up to this point, you have not consciously made it your way of living to count the current cost compared to the future cost, it would be wise for you to begin to do so.

At this point, you may be thinking to yourself, “But, I have to have a home. And, there’s no way I can pay cash for it given my current means. What am I supposed to do?

The answer is that you DON’T buy a $200,000 house with a 30-year mortgage. Instead, you buy a $75,000 house with a 10 or 15-year mortgage. Your interest rate will be lower and the payment amount is one that you can much more easily afford to pay. From there, you pay as much as you can towards the principle loan amount and you make as many IMPROVEMENTS TO THE HOME as you can. With appropriate improvements, in one to three years you should be able to easily sell the home for a nice $10,000 – $30,000 profit.

Then, you take this profit and roll it into another $75,000 house – except this time, you have a smaller mortgage. In 10 years or less (usually less), you can work your way all the way up to the same $200,000 home that I gave in the example above – except you’ll be able to pay cash for it.

Think of that, paying cash for your $200,000 dollar home in 10 years while all your friends will be into their retirement years before they get theirs paid off.

Yes, your friends may laugh at you early on for buying a $75,000 “fixer-upper”. But at the end, you’ll be the one laughing, not them. And, as the old saying goes, “He who laughs last, laughs best.

While your friends are struggling with their debt, your dealing with how to best invest that extra $315,000 THAT YOU HAVE that they are giving away to someone else.

You’re making YOU RICH.

They’re making SOMEONE ELSE RICH.

Which model do you like better?

Let me shift the topic a bit…

People often ask me if debt is ever appropriate. In my opinion, unless a debt is a carefully calculated business investment – meaning the “cost” of the money is “calculatably”, logically, and real-worldly (think Murphy’s Law) less than the return on the use of the money, it should be avoided.

Even when the cost of money is less than the return, it is my viewpoint to look for alternative approaches and means besides using debt.


Because I value my FREEDOM. And, when I owe someone, I am REQUIRED to make considerations, choices, and decisions that I otherwise would not make! Specifically, I choose to serve God rather than man.

However you choose to look at it, what I can for sure say is thatANY DEBT THAT DOES NOT MAKE YOU MONEY IS BAD FOR YOUR FINANCIAL HEALTH.

Here’s something else for you to keep in mind…

You don’t deal with darkness by “fighting” with darkness. Instead, you focus on creating light and the darkness disappears. Similarly, you don’t deal with coldness by “fighting” with it. Rather, you create heat and the coldness goes away.

I say this to point out that although I’m about to give you a process to eliminate debt, at some point you don’t so much deal with the debt as much as you focus on creating wealth – and if you operate as God would have you operate according to the Bible – the debt just “goes away” and wealth is left in place.

In some cases, the amount of debt can be so LARGE that a person can quite literally never be able to “pay it off” via normal means. In this case, the ONLY solution is to devote all of your God-given creative ability towards creating a LARGER amount of money – one that will not only take care of the debt but also leave you an overage that can be used to create additional wealth.

Lastly, remember that no one gets into a bad debt position overnight and no one gets out of it overnight. Becoming debt-free is a process of discipline and time. And, these two are inversely related – the more disciplined you are, the less time that’s needed. Conversely, the less disciplined you are, the more time that’s needed to eliminate the debt.

Think of it this way, to bring about anything good requires a “gestation period”. And usually, that gestation period isn’t the most comfortable experience (just ask any pregnant woman). But, when the good has “birthed”, you forget all about the unpleasantness of gestation for the joy of the good that has been born. (John 16:21)

Now, here’s a proven process for getting out of debt:

  1. From this point forward you do NOT buy anything unless you can pay cash for it. If you do not have the cash for it, you do not buy it, do it, or go there.
  2. List out each of your debts – from the smallest, most trivial item all the way up to your biggest items such as your mortgage – with their respective balance owed, interest rate, monthly payment amount, and number of payments remaining. From this information, sort your debts in an intelligent pay off order. (Usually, it makes the most sense to put those debts that have the smallest number of payments remaining at the top and those with the greatest number of payments remaining at the bottom.)
  3. For the debt that is at the top of the list, you pay AS MUCH AS YOU CAN POSSIBLY PAY on that debt each month and the absolute minimum payment on EVERYTHING ELSE.
  4. Once you have paid off the first debt, you then take what you were paying on the first debt and add that amount to what you’re paying on the second debt – the second debt now being the primary target of elimination. Again, you continue to pay the absolute minimum payment on everything else that’s lower on the list. (This is where most people dig themselves into a deeper hole – once they pay off a debt, they go get their “next toy” and take on another, usually bigger debt.)
  5. Once debt number two is paid off, then the payment amount that WAS going towards the first debt PLUS the payment amount that WAS going towards the second debt now gets added to the minimum payment of debt number three. As you can see, what you’re doing is doubling, tripling, quadrupling, etc the payment you’re making on each successive debt. The net result is that the debt elimination starts out slow but quickly gains speed and momentum with the payoff of each debt.
  6. You continue this simple process until your every debt is gone. By zealously following this process, a family can take 30+ years of debt – including their mortgage – and pay all of it off in less than 10 years.
  7. Once all debts are eliminated, you take the monthly payment that was going towards debt and you start paying that amount into your very own wealth-building account. Because of the amount of these payments you can begin accruing wealth quite quickly.

At this point, I want you to take a moment and consider the difference between the person who has followed this debt-elimination process and the person I described above who avoided debt as much as possible. The Lord willing, they’re both going to pass through the 10 years. The difference is their position at the end of the 10 years.

The person who has USED debt extensively must use the 10 years to build OTHER PEOPLES wealth. In contrast, the person who has AVOIDED debt as much as possible can begin building his or her own wealth almost immediately.

Now, let me address a common problem… If you’re having a hard time paying all of your bills, consider these points:

  1. DO put smart thought into a plan and then take decisive action. As an example, it makes NO sense to “hole up in your house” and “hide from the world” if you’re headed for foreclosure. Not only does it not make any sense, it’s just plain dumb to set there until the sheriff’s deputy shows up to evict you. Even if the only plan you can come up with is to sell the house, at least you’re doing something to move yourself into a more positive position.
  2. DO communicate frequently, firmly, and professionally with creditors. Explain to them what your current plans and actions are. Explain to them all the things that you are doing to rectify the problem. Reassure them that you WILL pay them everything you owe them. To avoid communicating with creditors is to make the problem WORSE. For example, it’s not wise to avoid a creditor until he or she finally sues you for wage garnishment of the debt PLUS court costs and legal fees.
  3. Ask creditors if they can restructure or rewrite the debt so that you have lower payments. Of course, this will result in a higher interest rate and a longer payoff term but at least you give yourself some breathing room and the space to get back up on your feet where you can pay what you owe.
  4. DO seriously consider liquidating everything that you possibly can. Sometimes the best solution is to set your ego and emotional attachments aside, sell your house, sell your cars, sell your boat, sell your whatever, and rent a small place until you can get back on your feet. Rather than view this as embarrassing and humiliating, view it as an adventure that didn’t work out so well and now you are embarking on a new adventure.

As a last resort, you can consider seeking assistance from:

  1. Credit counselors – These people will analyze your situation, make recommendations, and will even call creditors on your behalf and get them to agree to extended payment terms. Usually, in this model you pay one payment to the credit counselor’s agency and they disburse payments to the various creditors. Of course, there is a fee for the credit counselor’s agency to do all of this for you. Also, just so you are aware, the fact that you’ve sought assistance from a credit counselor will show up on your credit report.
  2. Loan consolidators – These are private businesses who lend you money so that you can pay off all of your debts and then you owe just one creditor – the new lender. Unfortunately, if your situation is in too big of a mess (i.e. your credit is too bad), you may not qualify for the loan. Also, watch out for prepayment penalties. These types of companies usually make their money by getting you to agree to a long-term payment plan at a high interest rate – and they’re not interested in you “taking money out of their pocket” by paying your loan off early.

WARNING: Carefully and prayerfully evaluate any third-party solutions as there ARE those who are scammers and con-artists looking to take as much money from you as they can and then “disappear”. Be particularly cautious when the word “free” is used.

Now, there’s one more thing I feel obligated to tell you…

The “world’s” system is your financial enemy. Society’s financial messages are NOT for your good.

Consider the Visa advertisements that play adrenalin-pumping music as hordes of people use their credit card. And then, one lone guy pulls out his wallet and attempts to pay with cash. Immediately, the music stops and the hordes of people place their look of disapproval upon the one guy (click here for an example).

This message of “buy on credit” is hammered into millions of people’s heads every night…

Yes, they make it look fun and yes they cover it up with the guise that it’s “faster” and “safer”…

Yes, these hordes of people buying on credit are the 95% of the population who die dead-broke…

Yes, these hordes of people never get to enjoy time-freedom and financial independence…

They are another man’s servant…

Money is their master…for they never learned to master money…

They spent their life dancing to the beat of the wrong drum…

Consider the words of Solomon in Proverbs 28:22, “He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.

With this verse in mind, ask yourself this question; “Is the use of credit anything more than just another way to hurry up and be rich?

Isn’t it true that the use of credit is nothing more than the desire to “live rich” and “be rich” now rather than later?

Consider another verse found in Proverbs 13:11, “Wealth gotten by vanity (debt) shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase.

Going back to the choice I mentioned at the beginning…

“The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.” – Proverbs 22:7

Do you now choose to operate with cash only and be rich? Or, do you choose to operate on credit and be a servant?

Here’s God’s will for your life… “Owe no man any thing, but to love one another” – Romans 13:8

Take these words to God in prayer and ask Him to lead you into all truth.

Wanting a Blessing While Cursing Everything…

Have you ever noticed…

When you’re attending a church service, it’s EASY to BLESS the Lord and to thank Him for His many blessings…

But, from the time you step outside your church’s doors until the time you step back inside them, it’s EASY to CURSE everything in your life?

Nobody means to…

Often, people don’t even realize they’re doing it…

They gripe about ________.

They complain about ________.

They’re unhappy about ________ and they tell everyone so.

You’ve heard them…

Maybe, you’ve heard yourself…

“That stupid ________ never works. I hate that thing!”

“That neighbor of ours is such an idiot. He’s going to mess around and tear up our ________.”

“You kids haven’t got a brain in your head do you? All you know how to do is destroy ________.”

“My boss thinks his sole purpose in life is to make my life miserable!”

“Come on you piece of junk car, start!”

“This economy is killing my business!”

“One more down-slide on my stocks and I’m going to be ruined!”

“I can’t get rid of this headache!”

As Jesus told Saul (Paul) in Acts 9:5, “It’s hard for thee to kick against the pricks”.

As it pertains to you and I…

It’s hard for us to attract blessings into our life if we are actively cursing – no matter how hard or soft – no matter how direct or indirect – everything that’s currently in our experience.

Let’s make a change. Let’s do this instead…

Let’s bless everybody and everything for good – both in church and out of church.

Remember, “ALL things work together FOR GOOD to them that love God”.

You love God, right?

That means that no matter how things “appear” in your experience, you can KNOW that it’s a “package of GOOD” specially-prepared by God for YOU.

So, if you can go ahead and BLESS EVERYTHING in your experience, that good can get to you – faster.

When This Happens, Which Way Do You Go?

It can be one of the hardest changes you’ll ever make in yourself…

…the ability to consistently focus on and be grateful for what you do have and what you can do…

…in the midst of so many things that you don’t have, don’t want, and can’t do.

And yet, it’s one of the most critically-important personal changes you’ll ever make.

Let a problem in some area of your life crop up – one that’s big enough to generate emotions within you – be it a financial problem, a relationship problem, a health problem, or any other kind of problem…

And what do you do?

Really, what do you do?

Unsuccessful people tend to promptly forget about all the so many things that ARE good and right in their life and they put all of their focus and energy into feeling bad about the problem that has arisen. And, they tend to stay in this state as long as they possibly can.

You do realize that what you focus on is what you’re believing for more of, don’t you?

That’s why, when a problem crops up in successful people’s lives, they CONSCIOUSLY and IMMEDIATELY begin to focus all of their attention and energy into being grateful for all the things that are right and that are good.

Then, they begin to express their gratefulness for all the options they have. Or, if they can’t yet see any options, then they begin to express their gratefulness for the excellent options that are sure to show up and the wonderful goodness that is certain to come out of this situation…

…which leads them on to curiously imagining and wondering just how many good things could possibly arise from this circumstance they find themselves in and exactly what those good things might be.

Do you see the difference?

One “goes” to the bad and the other “goes” to the good.

Doesn’t that make it blatantly obvious why successful people get far better outcomes in life than do unsuccessful people?

More importantly, can you make the shift in your thinking-focus? Even when it looks bad? Even when emotionally, it hurts?

It’ll make a hugely positive difference in your entire life if you can.

Concerning Your Predominant Thoughts…

Have you ever paused to consider what God thinks of your predominant thoughts?

That’s kind of important because the more negative, sour-minded, and unsuccessful a person is, the less attention they pay to what kinds of thoughts they have.

Conversely, the more successful a person is, the more carefully they monitor their thoughts to keep them positive.

Now, let me ask you this… Are you aware that God gets angry at people who have a negative mindset?

You can see that this is true for yourself in Deuteronomy 1:34 which says, “And the LORD heard the VOICE of your words, and was WROTH”.

Hmmm….the VOICE of your words…now, isn’t that interesting…

When we back up a few verses to Deuteronomy 1:27, we can read this, “And ye MURMURED in your tents, and said, Because the LORD hated us, he hath brought us forth out of the land of Egypt, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us.

The simple truth is, the people in this story were in a situation that THEY PERCEIVED AND INTERPRETED as difficult, unpleasant, and undesirable – and they began to think and talk negative about it.

What about you?

How do you start thinking and talking – both in private and in public – when you come face to face with a situation that you perceive and interpret as difficult, unpleasant, and undesirable?

Have you not yet learned that when you face something that you perceive and interpret as difficult, unpleasant, and undesirable, it’s because God has custom-built a personal growth plan for you – one that has important lessons and truths that He wants you to gain so that He can better glorify His name through you and bless and prosper you in the process?

That IS what God’s doing, you know.

Remember, watch what you think and say because the VOICE of your thoughts and words matters to God…He prefers you have the positive ones!
