Breaking a Poverty Mindset

When there is a spirit of poverty at work, there is lack. This manifests in relationships, finances, friendships, and the work field, etc. The results are not good, reactions come out of this such as: complaining about taxes; God will bless others but not me; I am not good enough; competition with other Christians/churches; the get rich quick mode; staying in a job for financial for security reasons but knowing GOD has much bigger plans for you; holding on to security instead of stepping out in faith; regularly more than your budget is set for, and spending all you have. Laziness in rea...

No More Stinking Thinking

We think we know who we are and that we have it so together. We think the way we do things is the norm. We think that living in our culture is the way we should be. Such as go to school, go to college, get a good job, buy a home, retire and then die. And let’s not forget sit in the church pew every week. But is that really the way God predestined our life? In heaven, there is a book written about our life.  It is not the norm but it is written specifically for you and all the blessings God longs to give to you. Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Your book were all written the...

Step out of the Boat

If someone would ask you to walk on water what would you say? More than 47 percent of the Bible is supernatural. This is the norm for GOD. Yet, many depend more on the natural norm then the supernatural. Many go by what they can see instead of what God does. The problem lies in our identity, in what we believe regarding God and what we believe about ourselves. This is putting God in a box. When God created Adam, he created him to have dominion over the world.  How do you do this? By starting to live by faith and not by sight.  A great example of getting to know our own identity is understa...

Dressed For Success: Prayer

Pray at All Times Many times, I have turned on the TV to just unwind, but at the end of the evening it feels kind of empty and did not have the result other than numbing myself from a busy day. The result that I got little to nothing accomplished. I felt bummed because I filled myself up with just stuff while my good books were sitting on the shelf. I know for a fact that if I would have read from even on of my books it would have been a much more fulfilling evening. According to the A.C. Nielsen Co., the average American watches 3 hours and 46 minutes of TV each day (that’s more than 52...

Dressed For Success: Rhema

Rhema Until recently I thought that in the armor of God, the sword was the written word of God, the Bible. I believed that the sword was the Word of God and that it was the Bible we used in how to fight our battles. By memorizing it, reading it and contemplating on it and to use it as a book to turn to for answers. But this is only partially true; this weapon is much bigger and grander than that. “Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of GOD.” –Ephesians 6: 17 The sword of the spirit is God's Word but not in the way many people assume it toda...

Dressed for Success: Helmet of Salvation

Helmet of Salvation Now days the relying on the natural is the norm. But in God's world, it is the super natural that is the normal. When we start living from GOD’S perspective instead of our own we start entering in the super natural and this is where people start seeing God alive in their lives. While in the bank, I noticed a teller had their head down on the desk, as if taking nap.  I greeted her and ask, "Are you okay?" Instantly, she turned her head to look behind her to see if the other employee that looked like a manager had noticed. "My head hurts, it hurts all the time." I offer...

Dressed for Success: The Shield of Faith

The Shield of Faith Words Matter and Have an Impact My mother in law called. She asked to speak with my husband. “He is on motorcycle trip,” came my reply. She recalled his motorcycle accident and responded: “Has he not gotten over that yet?” In this moment I went wrong. I received her words, “I agree and I don’t think it is safe to ride a motor cycle.” Hours later Ken came home and half an hour we argued about motorcycles. I did not build up my husband. I received words from another and responded by what was in my heart. Nelson Mandela said: “It is never my custom to use words lightly...
