The Word of God states that “we’re to guard our heart with all diligence, because out of it flow the issues of our lives.” This confirms that true prosperity begins in the heart, and to truly prosper in all respects we must invest in ourselves first! We can do that by getting and keeping negativity, criticalness, fault-finding and bitterness out. No matter where you are, change is possible because of the power of God that lives inside us!
The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. This is a true statement, a principle, straight from the Word of God.
Both poverty and wealth are powers, and no matter what your present circumstance is, it’s so important to not let them define you. God is using your present circumstances to draw out of you what He has put in you. The talents were not given to each person for the purpose of preservation, but for multiplication, and God requires that we be faithful with that which He’s given us so He can trust us with more. This is the principle that allows the blessing of abundance to flow in our lives.
It is vital that we renew our minds according to God’s Word regarding money. We serve the God of ALL supply! One thing a poverty mentality says is “I don’t have anything to give,” but the Word says that God supplies the seed to the sower, and that everybody has a seed to sow. Isaac sowed a radical seed in a time of famine in the land in obedience to the word of the Lord, and he reaped an abundant, radical harvest! Seed represents your future…it tells you what is to come. Discover the importance of our obedience and trust in order to see the blessing, increase and favor of God in our lives.
The spirit of offense can rise up so quickly in our lives; we feel people did us wrong, we get hurt and feel rejected. Jesus knew all of these feelings, and dealt with them Himself three times in a 24 hour period! But through the Holy Spirit, we have the power to resist the temptation to feel offended, thus allowing bitterness to come into our lives and rob our peace and relationships.
The sacrifice of Jesus’ death on the Cross would be null and void if He did not rise from the dead! This is an exciting message on the life-changing power of the resurrection and how it affects our lives today.
Jesus shed His blood in seven places in His physical body. It is amazing how each of these bought back something for you and I! This teaching from Pastor Larry Huch’s book by the same title will revolutionize the way you have thought about Jesus’ crucifixion. It will give you a fresh, new understanding of the absolute price Jesus paid for us!
We can think we have messed up, made too many, or too big of mistakes. But God never holds anything against us…Psalm 46 says that “His anger is for a night; His Favor is for a lifetime!” Let this message give you renewed hope even in the midst of seeming despair over our past.
The enemy wants to dull us. He wants to make us complacent, apathetic, etc. Don’t forsake getting together with other believers…it is one of your spiritual life lines!
