5 DAY 1 "MONEY EQUALS PROSPERITY" As we launch this brand new fast from wrong thinking, we will specifically be dealing with the subject of money and finances. We are living in troubled times financially, and we need to break free from the limitations of the world s economic system, and breakthrough into the truly abundant life that Jesus promised we could have. Living patterns are changed and developed over six weeks; as we give ourselves to a new way of thinking over the next 40 days regarding God s economic system, our financial condition, along with many other things, will change watch and see! Today we re fasting (ABSTAINING) from the thought that says, Money equals prosperity. LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. Money doesn t bring prosperity; but God brings prosperity & provision. Philippians 4:19 says, My God shall supply ALL your needs... - this includes ALL areas of your life. 2. Let s re-define prosperity. Prosperity IS God s presence in your life. Genesis 39:2 says the Lord was with Joseph, so he was a PROSPEROUS MAN. 3. God s presence causes EVERYTHING YOU PUT YOUR HAND TO, to prosper Genesis 39:3. Because God was with Joseph, God caused everything he did to prosper. 4. When the Lord is with you, you will have what you need. Shadrach,
6 Meshach & Abednego, PROSPERED in the fiery furnace, because of the 4th man in the fire! (Daniel 3:22-25) Money wouldn t have delivered them; but notice it was the PRESENCE OF GOD, that DID. 5. God s presence is with you NOW! In Matthew 28:20, Jesus said, And lo, I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS... THINK IT & SAY IT: My God shall supply ALL my needs. I believe in Re-Defined Prosperity. God s presence in my life is true prosperity. His presence causes everything I put my hand to, to prosper. I expect to have everything I need, because the Lord is with me! His presence is with me, and IN me, NOW, in Jesus Name. Hello, Divine Prosperity!
7 DAY 2 "I NEED MORE MONEY." We often think that more money will solve our problems. But the truth is - we need a lot of things that money can t buy! Today, we re fasting from the thought that says, I need more money! Who hasn t thought that once or twice (a day)? LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. God is your source. We often think that God will be our source of money; but He is our source PERIOD. (2 Corinthians 9:8) He is your sufficiency. 2. We don t need more money, we need more of God in our lives! As you stay full of God (His Word, the assurance of His love), you will have what you need. We don t leak (He ll never leave us), but we forget. (Romans 1:21) As you stay thankful, you stay FULL of God. 3. Abide in Him today. (John 15:7) See yourself in union with Jesus. Meditate on being In Him. Start with 2 Corinthians 1: Let His Words abide in you today. (John 15:7) As His Words become the fiber of your being; and become one with you, you can ASK anything in His Name, and it will be given to you. AMAZING! 5. Don t limit God. In Psalm 78:41, they limited God. This means that they set the boundaries. They defined what God could do, and how He could provide. This was their downfall.
8 6. God has countless ways to provide for you. It might be money or a business, or an idea, or wisdom, or a better budget, etc. He can give water from a rock; bread from heaven; food for a multitude from 5 loaves; coins out of a fish s mouth...expect Him to provide HIS way. THINK IT & SAY IT: God is my source. I refuse to limit how God can provide, or what He can provide me with. I abide IN HIM and His Word abides in me, and therefore I can ask for whatever I wish, and it will be done. I stay thankful and full of God. Money is not my source. My job is not my source. God is my source, and I expect His ideas, wisdom, provision and supply, in Jesus Name.
9 DAY 3 "I WONDER IF PROSPERITY WILL EVER COME MY WAY." Today we are fasting from the thought that says, "I wonder if prosperity will ever come my way." This mindset is preventing true success from flowing through our lives. When we wait for it to come to us, we miss the point of what it really is. LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. You already got it. Prosperity is not something we find; it is something we ARE. Genesis 39:2--The Lord was with Joseph, so he became a SUCCESSFUL and PROSPEROUS man. Notice, prosperity was not something he HAD; it was something HE WAS. 2. WE HAVE A BETTER COVENANT! (Hebrews 8:6) In Joseph s case, God was WITH him. For us, God is also IN us. 1 Corinthians 3:16 says, Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 3. Say what God says about you. Declare NOW that you are a prosperous and successful man or woman. Proverbs 18:21...LIFE is in the power of your tongue. 4. You have a treasure in you. (2 Corinthians 4:6) We have this treasure in earthen vessels. Don t doubt the treasure in you. WISDOM, GREATNESS & SUCCESS ARE ALREADY IN YOU. The kingdom of God is in you. Rom.14: Discover the secret of serving! Jesus said, The greatest among you is the servant of all (Matthew 23:11). When you believe in the greatness
10 God put in you, you will want to help others succeed; and the river of success & blessing will flow through you. 6. You will not fail. Failure can only come when we try to find prosperity out there. It is in us. God put it there. THINK IT & SAY IT: I don t need to wait for success to come my way. I am a prosperous and successful person, because God is with me AND in me. Wherever I go, I bring success. To prosper is not something I do, it's something I am. I say what God says about me. Regardless of my circumstances, success is in me. I have a treasure inside of me. That treasure makes me secure and confident so that I can freely and gladly serve others and become a river of success and prosperity to flow through, in Jesus Name.
11 DAY 4 "THINGS MIGHT NOT GET BETTER. THEY SEEM TO BE GETTING WORSE!" Today we're fasting from the thought that says, "Things might not get better. They seem to be getting worse!" This thinking is not an option today or EVER! No matter how bad things have gotten financially or in ANY AREA OF YOUR LIFE, God has promised that they will get better. LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. The path of the righteous gets brighter and brighter until the full day (Proverbs 4:18). 2. God is the God of increase, not decrease. 1 Corinthians 3:6 says, One plants, another waters, BUT GOD GIVES THE INCREASE. 3. You have a covenant of increase from God. Psalm 115:14 says May the Lord give you increase. Deuteronomy 1:11 says, May the Lord..increase you a thousand times and bless you as He has promised. 4. Eliminate the half empty glass mentality. In fact, don t accept it half full either! Think: My cup runs over! (Psalm 23:4) 5. Your life is going to end up better than it started! Ecclesiastes 7:8 says, "Better is the end of a thing than the beginning." Haggai 2:9 says, "The latter days of this house shall be greater than the former." 6. EXPECT THE BEST TODAY! In Luke 15:22 the father said, "bring the best robe, and put it on my son..." You are God s child. He wants the best for
12 you. Believe for goodness and mercy to follow you all the days of your life. THINK IT & SAY IT: No matter what is happening in this world, things are getting better and better for me! God has made me righteous through His blood; therefore, my path is getting brighter and brighter every day. My inner man is being renewed, day by day. I have a covenant of increase and God is increasing me, and all that I have, more and more. I expect the best today. He has saved the best for last and therefore I expect my coming days to be better than my past days, in Jesus Name!
13 DAY 5 "PROSPERITY IS DEFINED BY OUR FINANCIAL STATUS." As we continue to fast from wrong thinking, we are focusing on financial freedom which of course starts in our thinking. Proverbs 23:7 says, As a man thinks within, so is he. God has called me to help RE-DEFINE prosperity. So, today we are going to continue to fast from the thought that says, Prosperity is defined by our financial status. LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. True Prosperity will change my financial status; but is not defined by my financial status. 3 John 2 says, Beloved I wish you to prosper and be in health, EVEN AS YOUR SOUL PROSPERS. As your soul prospers, it improves everything in your life. 2. True Prosperity is defined by: Soul Prosperity. When your soul is filled with God and His Word, it affects EVERYTHING YOU PUT YOUR HAND TO, including your finances. (Psalm 1:1-3, Joshua 1:7-8) 3. True Prosperity is defined by: the Presence of God in your life. Remember, Joseph was defined as prosperous, BECAUSE THE LORD WAS WITH HIM. (Genesis 39:2.) 4. True Prosperity is defined by: The power of answered prayer. John 15:7 says if God s Word abides in us, we can ask WHATEVER we wish, and it will be done for us. 5. True Prosperity is defined by: Grace and righteousness. Romans 5:17 says in the Amplified version, Through the abundance of grace and the
14 gift of righteousness, we reign as kings in this life. 6. True Prosperity is defined by: Seeking first the kingdom of God. Matthew 6:33 says,...and all these things will be added to you. Put God first in your thoughts, your money, your priorities and God will supply! THINK IT & SAY IT: I live in Re-defined Prosperity and will not be defined by my financial status. True prosperity will change my financial status; but it starts in my soul. I am filled with God s Word. I am filled with God s presence. I am filled the power of answered prayer. I am filled with grace and righteousness. I am filled with the kingdom of God. I am a truly prosperous man or woman, in Jesus Name!
15 DAY 6 "I CAN'T SUCCEED IN THIS ECONOMY." Today, we're fasting from the thought that says, "I can t succeed in this economy." LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. You have the power to succeed in any economy. Believe it. Deuteronomy 8:18 says, "...God has given you the power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant." Notice what God gives you: the power to get it. This promise is for YOU. Meditate on it. 2. Tap into the ROOT to success meditating on the Word of God. Psalm 1:1-3 says, "...As long as you flood your mind with the Word of God, God will fill your life with success." Your success is connected to the Word of God, not the economy. 3. Expect open doors. That s the favor of God. He opens doors for YOU that no one can close (Revelation 3:8). He wants to overtake you with increase and favor. (Psalm 115:14) Favor surrounds YOU like a shield. (Psalm 5:12) Fill your mind with FAVOR-EXPECTATION. 4. You have a covenant with God. This is what makes you different. Abraham, Isaac and Jacob all succeeded in times of FAMINE and economic trouble. (Genesis 24, 26 & 28) You have been promised the same blessing as them! (Galatians 3:29) Expect it! 5. Refuse to let the economy or anything else determine your limitations and possibilities. ASK SUCCESS. THINK SUCCESS. EXPECT SUCCESS. It will always come. (Ephesians 3:20)
16 THINK IT & SAY IT: I have the power to succeed even in the worst economy. God will establish His covenant in this earth through me. I choose to fill my mind with the GOOD news rather than the current news. The Word is my meditation, day and night. I expect open doors. They are coming to me every day, somehow, someway. I have a covenant with God. I think big success; ask big success; and I expect BIG success, in Jesus Name!
17 DAY 7 "SOMETHING THAT GOOD COULD NEVER HAPPEN TO ME." Today we re fasting from the thought that says, Something that good could never happen to me. Often we see good or great things happen to others, but we just don t think it could happen to us. LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. Expect good things to happen to you EVERY DAY! Psalm 23:6 says, Goodness and mercy shall follow you all the days of your life Think Big! Renew your mind to God s language. For example: Ask for the nations (Psalm 2); Speak to the mountain (Mark 11); your descendants shall be as numerous as the stars (Genesis 15); you shall possess the land (Numbers 13), etc. God uses BIG language and gives us big dreams. 3. Ask Big! Ephesians 3:20 says, God is able to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that we can ask or think. Start asking and thinking the way God says to. 4. Never stop dreaming and envisioning a better life. In Acts 2:17 God says: In the last days I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams. 5. Take your seat! What do I mean? God has seated us with Jesus Christ in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6). He has given us DIVINE point of view. We
18 are already positioned ABOVE our wildest dreams and expectations, so let s begin to expect them today! THINK IT & SAY IT: I give up small thinking. I expect good things to happen to me every day of my life. I agree with God s way of looking at things. I decide to think bigger every day; and to ask for the things God said I could ask for. I accept the visions and dreams that the Holy Spirit wants to give me. I have been given power, love and a sound mind to fulfill God s purpose for my life, in Jesus Name.
19 DAY 8 "I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH." Today we re fasting from the thought that says, "I don't have enough." It says, "I don't have enough money. I don't have enough time. I don't have enough friends. I don't have enough experience. I don't have enough education..." LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. The God-of-more-than-Enough lives in you. Adjust your thinking now. ENOUGH is inside of you. JEHOVAH JIREH The Lord, the Provider is in you. 2. Whatever you SEEM to not have enough of, SOW. If you don t seem to have enough friends, sow friendship. Proverbs 18:24. You will reap whatever you sow, in multiplied harvests. 3. BELIEVE: GOD WILL SUPPLY ALL YOUR NEEDS (Phil 4:19); and the DESIRES of your heart (Psalm 37:4). 4. Meditate on the power of Jesus HANDS. When the little boy gave his 5 loaves and 2 fish, he put it in the hands of Jesus...it was multiplied to feed (John 6:1-14) Whatever seems to be lacking in your life put in the hands of Jesus commit to Him, and He will multiply it. Whatever His hands touched was healed, delivered, empowered. 5. Expect the blessing of God to come upon you AND overtake you. Deut. 28:2 (This blessing is your inheritance because of the cross Galatians 3:13)
20 6. Meditate on the words of Jesus: I have come that you would have life in abundance, to the FULL, till it overflows. (John 10:10b Amplified) THINK IT & SAY IT: The God of more than enough El Shaddai lives in me. THEREFORE, I always have enough, God shall supply ALL my needs, according to His riches. My God is more than enough. He fills me to the full, and His blessings overtake me. He gives back to me, good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, in Jesus Name!
21 DAY 9 "GOD AND MONEY DON'T MIX." Today we re fasting from the thought that says, God and money don t mix. Many people think that they have to choose if they are going to have more of God in their life, or more money and success in their life. The truth is, you can have both God and money; but you can t SERVE both God and money. LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. Money is not evil. But the love of it is the root to evil. (1 Timothy 6:10) 2. The love of money is not the same as HAVING money. The love of money is a distorted relationship with money. It s being dependent upon it, rather than dependent upon God. 3. Put God first. When you put God first in your life and your money, you ll have plenty of both life and money. Proverbs 3:9-10 says, Honor the Lord with your substance and the first...and your barns will be filled with plenty. 4. LOVE GOD. There s nothing that can fix MORE things in your life than these 2 simple words: LOVE GOD. (Matthew 22:37) 5. Seek first the Kingdom of God (Matthew 6:33). One of the words for kingdom here is: God s way of doing things. Seek God s way of handling your choices, your relationships, your finances, AND THEN all the things you need will be added to you.
22 THINK IT & SAY IT: I love God with all my heart, mind, soul and strength. My relationship with Him is everything to me. I put God first in my thoughts, my life and my money. I choose to do things God s way, and expect my every need to be met by God. I choose to use money to advance God s kingdom and covenant in this earth, in Jesus Name!
23 DAY 10 "MORE MONEY WILL MAKE ME HAPPY." Today we re fasting from the thought that says, More money will make me happy. While it seems like lack and poverty cause much stress-- money is not the stress reliever. God s Word is. LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. Re-define the source of happiness. The supreme happiness in life is the assurance that you are loved! (Mark 1:11) Jesus knowledge of God s love for Him, made Him the happiest man in the world! (Hebrews 1:9) 2. Stop condemning yourself. Romans 14:22 says, HAPPY IS THE MAN WHO DOES NOT CONDEMN HIMSELF. Jesus declares you righteous. Reject condemning thoughts. 3. Love the anointing of God, not money. (Hebrews 1:9) Jesus was ANOINTED with joy beyond others. You have that same anointing 1 John 2: Ask God for wisdom and understanding. That will bring true happiness. Proverbs 3:13 says, Happy is the man who finds wisdom and understanding. 5. Recognize the root of riches. WISDOM produces wealth and riches (Proverbs 8:18). GET WISDOM. 6. Be a giver. You are more happy when you are giving. (Acts 20:35). And giving will always lead to receiving Luke 6:35.
24 THINK IT & SAY IT: My happiness doesn t come from money it comes from knowing I am loved by God. I refuse to condemn myself and therefore I expect to walk in divine happiness. I love the anointing and walk in the joy of the Lord. I receive wisdom from God every day, resulting in happiness and riches, in Jesus Name!
25 DAY 11 "THERE JUST ISN'T ENOUGH TO GO AROUND." Today we re fasting from the thought that says, There just isn t enough to go around not enough money, not enough jobs, not enough opportunity. LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. Expect abundance. Renew your mind to our God of abundance. John 10:10 says He came to give you life in abundance, to the full, till it overflows. 2. Expect profusely abounding favor. Luke 4:19 says this is day when salvation and THE FREE FAVORS OF GOD PROFUSELY ABOUND! 3. Believe in the SAME JESUS as in the Bible. Hebrews 13:8 says Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever Remember His abundance yesterday, and expect it today! He provided more than enough loaves in John 6:1-14; more than enough income in Luke 5:4-7; more than enough healing in Acts 10: Believe in the power of asking. (James 4:2) You have not because you ask not---if there isn t enough of something in your life, ask God who gives GENEROUSLY (James 1:17). 6. Know Him as Provider. That s one of His names: Jehovah Jireh The Lord your provider!
26 THINK IT & SAY IT: I expect abundance today because Jesus came to give me abundant life. He is the God of MORE than enough, and I expect His favor and blessing to profusely abound in my life. He is Jehovah Jireh, and because He loves me, He will provide for my every need, in Jesus Name.
27 DAY 12 "IT'S NOT ALWAYS GOD'S WILL FOR ME TO SUCCEED/PROSPER." Today we re fasting from the thought that says, It s not always God s will for me to succeed/prosper. This mentality will keep our faith and expectations limited. LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. Remember our re-defining of prosperity. True prosperity IS the presence of God with us. Therefore, it s always God s will for you to prosper, because it s always God s will to BE WITH YOU! 2. Success always comes! Since success and prosperity are the overflow of meditating on God s Word, then it s always His desire for you to succeed. (Psalm 1:1-3, Joshua 1:7-8) 3. Understand God s ABOVE ALL desire for YOU. 3 John 2 says, Beloved, I wish ABOVE ALL THINGS that YOU mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers. (KJV) 4. Dispel the myth that some people are meant to fail or be poor in life. Jesus NEVER left someone in a worse condition than how He found them. The lost were saved. The sick were healed. The blind gained sight. The hungry were fed. The fallen were forgiven. The dead were raised. THAT S GOD S WILL IN ACTION. 5. This is God s idea. Men might abuse success, money or prosperity; but they are unmistakably God s idea. Isaiah 48:17 says "I am the LORD your God, who teaches you to profit, Who leads you in the way you should go.
28 THINK IT & SAY IT: True prosperity is the presence of God with me. And because it s always His will to be WITH ME, it s always His will to prosper me. As I meditate on the Word of God consistently, success always comes. It s God s idea and desire for me to prosper and succeed. I expect Him to teach me how to profit in all things, in Jesus Name.
29 DAY 13 "I'LL NEVER GET IT BACK." Today we re fasting from the thought that says, I ll never get it back. We all know what it s like to lose money through investments, or bad decisions, or missed opportunities. Doubt enters our minds telling us that we won t get back what has been lost. LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. God will repay. Stop expecting sins to be repaid. They are forgiven. Expect lost years to be repaid. Joel 2:25 says, I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten God is the God of restoration. He restored Job double (Job 42). He restored sight (Mark 8). He restored health (Jeremiah 32). He restores MONEY too Ezekiel 16:53; Deuteronomy 30:33; Jeremiah 29:14 (NASB). 3. He specializes in finding (and restoring) lost things. Luke 15 lost coin, lost sheep, lost son. EXPECT lost things restored today! 4. Call on the seed you ve sown. Declare to your past seeds, Harvest, come forth from the seeds I ve sown. Galatians 6:9...in due season, you shall reap if you faint not. 5. Speak life over your finances. Proverbs 18:21 says, Death and life are in the power of your tongue Expect MORE NOW, MORE than ever. Ephesians 3:20 says, God is able to do exceeding abundantly above and beyond all that we can ask or think...
30 THINK IT & SAY IT: I believe God will restore to me all lost money, lost opportunities and lost year. He will repay me for all that has been lost. I declare to my harvests, COME FORTH! My due season is coming; my seeds are coming forth. God is my source in times of darkness, and I expect MORE now MORE than ever, in Jesus Name!
31 DAY 14 "I CAN'T SUCCEED WHEN THINGS ARE THIS BAD." Today we re fasting from the thought that says, I can t succeed when things are this bad. So often, we allow the things happening around us to influence what happens through us. Times may be look tough through the media s world view, but we need to look through God s world view. LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. See the GOOD in BAD times. When the economy is bad, it s our opportunity to see that God is our true source. When there was total darkness in Egypt, there was light for the children of God. (Exodus 10:23) 2. Believe the love God has for you. Deuteronomy 23:5 says the LORD your God turned the curse into a blessing for you because the LORD your God loves you. 3. Learn the secret of turning bad into good. LOVE GOD. Romans 8:28 says, All things work together for good to those who LOVE GOD and are called... Remember, the greatest force of success in life is love. 1 Corinthians 13:8 says love never fails. 4. The TURN-AROUND GOD is with you! Psalm 107:35 says He turns the dry land into springs of water = gushing fountains that break forth and flow continually, diffusing fertility and beauty everywhere. 5. Remember: Seed meets need. God lacked children, so He sowed His only Son, and reaped countless sons and daughters. (John 3:16) Sow your
32 best seeds in tough times and things will get better. THINK IT & SAY IT: I expect supernatural success in tough times. God is my source and brings me light in dark times. I expect bad times to turn into good for me because God loves me; and because I love Him, all things work for my good. My life gushes forth fruitfulness and beauty everywhere, as I plant good seeds today, in Jesus Name.
33 DAY 15 "AFTER WHAT I'VE DONE WRONG, I DON'T DESERVE TO BE BLESSED." Today, we're fasting from the thought that says: "After what I ve done wrong, I don't deserve to be blessed." LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. Stop focusing on your "wrongs," and focus on His "rights." We've all done enough wrong in life to send us straight to hell. But God doesn't judge us based on our right or wrong. He judges us based on what Jesus did right. We need to believe it. 2. It s His choice. God has appointed you to bear fruit and that your fruit remain John 15: Blessing flows when you believe you are forgiven. Romans 4:7 says, "Blessed are they whose sins are forgiven." This is amazing! Putting your faith in God's forgiveness is the gateway to blessing in your life. 4. Jesus IS WORTHY of God's blessing, and you are IN HIM. Galatians 3:29 says, "If we belong to Christ, we are Abraham's seed and heirs according to promise." 5. Stop condemning yourself. STOP BEATING YOURSELF UP WHEN YOU MAKE A MISTAKE. Romans 14:22 says, "Blessed (happy) is the man who does not condemn himself." 6. He took the curse so you could take the blessing! HE deserves to see you blessed, because of what He went through to take your curse! "Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us... on
34 the cross...that the blessing of Abraham might come on us through Jesus Christ." (Galatians 3:13) THINK IT & SAY IT: I take my eyes off all that I have done wrong, and put my eyes on all that He has done right for me. He blesses me because He has chosen to. I receive it. I choose to believe I am forgiven, and therefore BLESSING FLOWS. I belong to Christ, therefore I am blessed with Abraham. Genesis 24:1 says Abraham was blessed IN ALL THINGS - therefore that's what I expect.
35 DAY 16 "I JUST DON'T MAKE ENOUGH MONEY AT MY JOB." Today, we re fasting from the thought that says, I just don t make enough money at my job. While your salary may not be what you would like it to be, THIS IS A WRONG WAY OF THINKING AND MUST BE CHANGED. LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. Your job is not your source. God is your source. Philippians 4:19 says, My God shall supply all your need according to His riches...in Christ Jesus. Notice, He meets your need according to His riches, not according to your salary. 2. See your job as your SEED capital. Remember, SEED meets NEED. (Genesis 8:22) THIS THINKING MUST PENETRATE OUR LIVES. Our SEED is what determines our harvest. Our job provides us with seed to sow into God s Kingdom. 3. THINK SUPERNATURAL. Don t let life brainwash you into NATURAL EXPECTATIONS. Believe in the supernatural provision of God. Ephesians 3:20 says God is able to do exceeding abundantly ABOVE AND BEYOND, ALL you can ask or think. 4. Don t forget to ASK big, and think big! (Ephesians 3:20) 5. EXPECT harvests. If you have tithed, sowed, given you have stored up harvests that will come. Galatians 6:6-9 says In due season, you shall reap...
36 6. Expect stolen things restored 7-fold! (Proverbs 6:31-32) Identify money, opportunities or blessings that have been stolen from you by the devil. And demand that he give it back. (Matthew 18:18) THINK IT & SAY IT: God s riches are available to me, as I put Him first in my life. God is my source. I will not be limited by my salary. I expect SUPERNATURAL harvests from all the good seeds I ve sown. God IS doing beyond what I have asked or thought. I command all stolen opportunities, money and blessings to be returned to me, in Jesus Name!
37 DAY 17 "I'M SO WORRIED ABOUT MY FINANCIAL CONDITION." Today we re fasting from the thought that says, I m so worried about my financial condition. As our thinking ascends to God s way of thinking, worry dies. LET S CHANGE IT TODAY! 1. Recognize God s faithfulness Psalm 37:25 says, I have been young; now I am old; yet not once have I seen the righteous abandoned or his descendants begging for bread. 2. Think long term. A long term view of the economy reveals God s faithfulness to His people; and a long term plan puts the power back in your hands. 3. Be specific with God. Phillippians 4:6-7 says to make your request known to God. Whatever is worrying you matters to God. Let Him know what you need. 4. Remember, worry is a SIGNAL to pray! (Phil. 4:6-7) James 4:2 says, You have not because you ask not. 5. Destroy powerlessness. All negative emotions, including worry comes from feeling powerless to change our situation. Destroy it with Deuteronomy 8:18 which says It is God who gives you the POWER to get wealth Be on the giving side of life. Life is to give. Luke 6:38 it will be given back to you so much more.
38 THINK IT & SAY IT: God will never abandon me. He will never leave me nor forsake me. I attack worry by praying the Word of God regarding my finances. God is determined to establish His covenant through me, therefore I have the POWER to get wealth, and succeed, in Jesus Name!
39 DAY 18 "WILL I EVER BE FREE FROM THIS FINANCIAL PRESSURE?" Today we re fasting from the thought that says, Will I ever be free from this financial pressure? Let s change it today, and break free from financial pressure! 1. Understand the power of decision. Decide that you will deal with money the way God s Word says to. (John 2:5) No matter what. 2. Understand the kingdom of God. Heaven is a place; but the kingdom of God is God s way of doing things. When you seek to do things God s way, provision comes. (Matthew 6:33) 3. Understand pressure s goal: to get you to make a decision that temporarily relieves the pressure, even though it doesn t produce results. (Luke 4:2-4) Resist this pressure by speaking the Word of God. 4. Look outward, not inward. Find someone worse off and help relieve their financial pressure. You will be sowing for a supernatural harvest. (Proverbs 19:17) 5. He must increase but I must decrease. (John 3:30) As you increase your focus and attention on Jesus, pressure loses its power over you. (Hebrews 12:1-3) 6. Take spiritual inventory. THERE ARE MORE FOR YOU THAN THOSE AGAINST YOU. (2 Kings 6:15-17)
40 THINK IT & SAY IT: I walk in the power of the kingdom of God. I do things God s way; and I have supernatural results. I refuse to make my decisions to relieve pressure, but I make my decisions in line with the Word of God. I declare that God provides for my every need, and my decisions line up with God s Word. I fix my eyes on Jesus and trust that God has an army of angels surrounding me, helping me, in Jesus Name.
41 DAY 19 WE'RE FASTING FROM EXCUSES! Today we re fasting from excuses! True success will never come to the person who makes excuses. We must eliminate excuse-making mentalities such as: I can t do it without..., I don t have enough resources..., If I only had... Today we are going to eliminate excuse-making mentalities. Let s change it today! 1. Refuse to excuse mediocrity. 1 Thessalonians 4:1 says...excel still more... Don t give in to the temptation to settle for where you re at. Wherever you re at in life, right now thank God; and press forward for more of what He has for you. (Philippians 3:13-14) 2. Refuse to excuse lack and failure in your life saying that you were born on the wrong side of the tracks or you re limited by your upbringing. You may have been born on the wrong side of the tracks, but you're not bound to stay there. Cross the tracks NOW. (Romans 8:37) 3. Refuse to excuse unforgiveness. We sometimes think, you just don't know what they did to me, but the truth is: God knows what WE did to HIM and He still forgives us. Let it go. 4. Refuse to excuse lack of support. In John 5:7 the lame man said, I have no man to help me. He used that as an excuse to remain in his condition. Even if everyone lets us down, God will support us. (Psalm 27:10) 5. Redirect your effort and work. It takes EFFORT to come up with excuses. If we would redirect the same energy, and instead MAKE a WAY, doors
42 would open. John 14:6 says Jesus is the WAY. When tempted to make an excuse why you can t do something, ask Jesus to open the door that man can't close. (Revelations 3:8) 6. Get up on the roof! Luke 5:18-20 says, When they could not find a way to get in, they went up on the roof and lowered their friend...right in front of Jesus. Refuse to accept that there is no way. Faith finds a way! Success will come. THINK IT & SAY IT: I eliminate excuse-making from my thoughts and words. I will no longer excuse or justify mediocrity in my life; I will not allow lack or failure in my life. God has made me a success and I will press on to experience it. I am forgiven and I will not withhold forgiveness from others. God takes up my cause and is my greatest support. I believe there is always a way to succeed. I release my faith by asking God, and expecting Him to open the door that no man can close, in Jesus Name.
43 DAY 20 "WHAT IF GOD DOESN"T MEET MY NEEDS?" Today we re fasting from the thought that says, What if God doesn t meet my needs? Sometimes our needs are great. And even though on the surface, many of us trust God, there is this gnawing thought at times that God won t come through for us in difficult times. LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. He s your FATHER! Luke 12:32 says your Heavenly Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom! 2. It s HIS CHOICE TO BLESS YOU. Fear leaves when you know He has chosen gladly to give you His provision. (Luke 12:32) 3. He will never break His promise to you, because He CAN T! (Hebrews 6:19, Joshua 21:45) His track record is perfect. In Psalm 37:25 David said,...i ve NEVER seen the righteous forsaken, or his descendants begging bread. 4. SEED meets NEED. Throughout scripture, those who planted seed saw God s miracle provision. EVEN GOD planted His Son in the earth, and reaped millions of children! (John 12:24) * Plant Word seeds in your heart Mark 4:14 * Plant financial seed in the kingdom of God in your church, in a ministry, in a great cause. If you would like to plant seed toward your need now, click here.
44 5. He adds and multiplies! Expect addition (Matthew 6:33) AND multiplication (Deuteronomy 1:11) TODAY. THINK IT & SAY IT: God is my Father, and He gladly provides for me. It s His choice to bless me, therefore I will not fear. He keeps His promises to me, in Christ. I expect additional and multiplied blessing to come into my life. I plant seeds to meet needs and I trust God will supply ALL my needs, in Jesus Name.
45 DAY 21 "WILL I EVER HAVE ENOUGH?" Today we re fasting from the thought that says, Will I ever have enough? 1. Look for a higher vision, not a higher income. (Proverbs 29:18) Live for a cause bigger than your needs and you'll have more than you need. 2. Listen for God s guidance for His next step for your life. Where God guides, He provides. (Proverbs 3:5-9) 3. Stop thinking about money. Remember, God has a million ways He can provide--don't limit Him. (Psalm 78:14) 4. Don t allow your current circumstance to dictate your future. Your path is getting brighter and brighter every day. (Proverbs 4:18) 5. God adds interest to the things that He is interested in! Fling yourself into what moves God's heart, and He will provide. (Matthew 6:33) 6. Ask God for ideas that will HELP PEOPLE rather than ideas that produce money. And money will come when you're helping people. (Proverbs 19:17) THINK IT & SAY IT: I set my mind on God's vision for my life and I believe provision follows vision. God is my provider and is not limited by my current circumstances. I get my eyes off the provision I need, and ON the Provider! I expect ideas and ways to help the hurting, and the things that I need will find me, in Jesus Name.
46 DAY 22 "IF I LIVE AS A SERVANT, I'LL BE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF AND FEEL INFERIOR." One of the keys to success in any area of life is being a servant getting underneath others and pushing them up to succeed. So today we re fasting from the thought that says, If I live as a servant, I ll be taken advantage of and feel inferior. LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. God prospers His servants! Psalm 35:27 says He takes delight and pleasure in the prosperity of His servant. 2. See yourself as a son or daughter of God. (1 John 3:1) When you realize who you really are, you drive inferiority out of your life; therefore, you gladly serve others, pushing them up. 3. Serving is not a stepping stone to greatness; it IS greatness. (Matthew 20:27) Get rid of the mindset that serving is a temporary role. 4. The way up, is down. Understand that God promotes the humble, the servant. (1 Peter 5:6) It is true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others succeed. Napoleon Hill 5. Start serving by praying: pray for your leaders; for your employers; for those who use you, or take advantage of you. Prayer is loving in the spirit. 6. Others recognize when you are a true servant and they promote you. (Genesis 39:2-3)
47 THINK IT & SAY IT: I follow the example of Jesus by being a servant, and pushing others up to succeed. I know that I will reap what I sow. As I help others succeed, success will come to me. I have a treasure of gifts inside of me, and I use them to serve others, to bless others, and to advance God s Kingdom, in Jesus Name!
48 DAY 23 "I DON'T SEE A WAY OUT OF MY FINANCIAL SITUATION." Today we re fasting from the thought that says, I don t see a way out of my financial situation. or I feel trapped financially. LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. Inaction keeps you poor. TAKE ACTION. 2 Kings 7 says the four leprous men said, Why do we sit here and die?...let s go up... When they took action, God got involved and multiplied their efforts. 2. Spend time TODAY getting to know God better! Daniel 11:32 says, Those who know their God will be strong and TAKE ACTION. Meditate on His promises, and you ll know Him better. 3. BELIEVE: There s always a way out of whatever you re facing. Revelation 3:8 says God will open a door that no man can close. (AND 1 Corinthians10:13) 4. Ask God for deliverance from your situation. James 4:2 says you have not, because you ask not. Romans 10:12 says all who call upon the Lord shall be DELIVERED rescued! 5. Change your thinking to: What goes DOWN, must come up! Plant a seed. The way out of any bad situation is to plant a seed for the opposite result. If you have a debt you can t pay; pay someone else s debt that they can t pay; forgive a debt, someone else can t pay you, etc.
49 6. Malachi 3:10 says when you tithe, He opens the windows of heaven and pours out a blessing. This blessing can be an IDEA, a SOLUTION, a BREAKTHROUGH, a DEBT CANCELLATION it s MORE than just money. THINK IT & SAY IT: God always provides a way out of the situation I m in. I am strong and TAKE ACTION because I know my God. He will open doors for me that no man can close. I call upon the Lord and expect His deliverance. The seeds I plant WILL come up in mighty harvests, ideas, solutions and breakthroughs, in Jesus Name!
50 DAY 24 "IF I JUST DO MORE FOR GOD, PERHAPS HE WILL FINALLY BLESS ME." Today we are fasting from the thought that says: If I just do more for God, perhaps He will finally bless me. This thinking is robbing so many people of the blessing and privileges He wants us to walk in. LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. Remember, Christianity is not about the promises we make to God, but the promises He makes to us. (2 Corinthians 1:20) The promises are YES. Our part: to say AMEN! Believe it. Receive it! 2. Exchange this slave mentality for a son mentality. You don t have to earn God s blessing. It's your right as a son. (Romans 8:15) Stop trying to DO enough. You ARE enough a son/daughter! 3. Stop seeing yourself as an outsider. Mark 1:11 says you are His beloved child. He s pleased with your faith. Faith brought Abraham into the blessing, and it brings you too! (Galatians 3:8-9) 4. You are already blessed! Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who HAS ALREADY BLESSED US, with all spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 1:3) See it? We are already blessed! Thank Him-- that s the prayer of faith! 5. Freely we have received, now freely give. KNOWING that you have freely received puts into motion a generous attitude which perpetuates
51 more blessing. (Matthew 10:8) 6. We have a covenant of blessing! God s blessing will overtake you when you BELIEVE in this covenant. Jesus earned it for you. It sounds too good to be true; but it IS true. (Genesis 17:2-8) THINK IT & SAY IT: I live by the promises of God. I am a son/daughter of God. I am not a slave, needing to earn my blessing or earn my freedom. The Son has made me free; and God has already blessed me with all blessings. I have freely received; therefore, I am free to give. I have a covenant of blessing and I am not on the outside, looking in; I have an inheritance. I am in God s will, in Jesus Name!
52 DAY 25 "I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'LL DO IF THEY DON'T COME THROUGH FOR ME." Today we re fasting from the thought that says: I don t know what I ll do if THEY don t come through for me. So often we look to someone else to meet our needs or we feel disappointed if someone doesn t keep their promise. LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. God will provide. Philippians 4:19 says He provides all our needs according to His riches and glory. Renew your mind to the fact that He provides for ALL our needs, not just finances. 2. Dependence upon others is NOT humility, it s misplaced trust. Psalm 43:5 says, Why so downcast, O my soul? Put your hope in God. David is saying that when we put our hope in anything other than God, we will wind up depressed. Shift your trust and hope to God. 3. Hope is born from the love of God. Believe the love He has for you. Meditate on Romans 5:5 which says, Hope does not disappoint (let you down) BECAUSE the love of God has been shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit. 4. Realize that over-dependency upon others keeps you from loving them. When you depend on someone doing for you, providing for you, coming through for you, you can t love. Therefore you can t succeed, because love never fails. You can t love them, because you need them too much. Love gives. 5. Don t trust the provision, trust the provider. Deuteronomy 8:3a says
53 ...that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone Treat a broken promise from someone as an OPPORTUNITY to trust God. DIS appointment becomes HIS appointment when we look to the true promise Maker and promise Keeper Hebrews 13:5. THINK IT & SAY IT: I trust in God as the Promise Maker, not the promise breaker! God will provide for ALL MY NEEDS. I free myself from dependence upon others, and I will depend on God, empowering me to love others freely. My trust and hope is in God. And THAT hope will never let me down, because God s love is in me, and He will never disappoint me.
54 DAY 26 "I DON'T SEE THINGS CHANGING FOR THE BETTER." Today we re fasting from the thought that says, I don t see things changing for the better. There are many times when we are not seeing things change. Don t let this fool you change your thinking and you will change your financial situation and your life! LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. Change what you re looking at. Our faith comes from the promises of God. Let God s unchanging promises de-throne the current picture you re seeing. (2 Corinthians 4:18) 2. Fix your eyes of Jesus. (Hebrews 12:2) There is NO OTHER man that we should look to to meet our needs; or to calm our fears not relatives, government, or anyone. Trust Jesus TODAY. 3. Believe in the power of your seed. There is great seed in the ground, on its way up. (Galatians 6:7-9) Be patient. God s Word is working. Your seeds are working. 4. Picture it. Ephesians 3:20 says, God is able to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that we can ask or think or IMAGINE. Start imagining a life with your bills paid; your beautiful home paid off; money in the bank to HELP OTHERS out! Picture it. 5. Think like a genius: Albert Einstein said, "All meaningful and lasting change starts first in your imagination and then works its way out.
55 Imagination is more important than knowledge." 6. Step out. Embrace the belief that every step you take counts. Every thought, word, action leads to change. Get up! (John 5:8) THINK IT & SAY IT: I make up my mind that things ARE changing. My seeds are growing. My imagination is working. I refuse to imagine negativity or emptiness. I believe a blessed life is coming my way; I picture it and I step out and move toward it today with every step I take, in Jesus Name!
56 DAY 27 "SOMEDAY I'LL SUCCEED." Today we re fasting from the thought that says, Someday I ll succeed. On the outside, this thought seems good; but it is a wrong way of thinking. LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. YOU ARE A SUCCESS NOW! Success is not something you have; it s something you are! Remember Genesis 39:2 says, And Joseph was a successful man, for the Lord was with Him (New American Standard Bible). 2. Remember, true success is God s presence in your life. If you re washed in the blood of Jesus, God s presence is with you NOW. (Hebrews 10:19) Therefore, you are a true success NOW. 3. Rejoice today no matter what it looks like. Psalm 118:24 says, This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. Joy is the strength that manifests YOUR success. 4. Live in the overflow of your meditation. Joshua 1:8 says AS you meditate on God s Word day & night, it will produce the necessary action to make your way prosperous. FLOOD your mind with God s promises today. 5. Take inventory. You have God s Word which produces KNOWLEDGE. You have the Holy Spirit which produces UNDERSTANDING. And you have the power of prayer which produces WISDOM (James 1:5) these are the ingredients for success Exodus 31:3.
57 THINK IT & SAY IT: I am a success NOW. God s presence has made me successful; and I am in His presence NOW through the blood of Jesus! God has made this day for MY success, and His Word flowing from my life brings me victory and success in everything. I ask for and receive a supernatural supply of wisdom today to apply God s Word in my situation, in Jesus Name!
58 DAY 28 "I'M NOT SMART ENOUGH TO SUCCEED IN TODAY'S ECONOMY." Today we re fasting from the thought that says, I m not smart enough to succeed in today s economy. LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. Settle the fact that you have the mind of Christ. (1 Corinthians 2:16) Jesus was and IS the smartest man in the world! You have His Spirit and His Word. Expect success! 2. Ask God for Wisdom. Proverbs 24:3 says that we BUILD our house by wisdom. Wisdom can build your house, business, or income! James 1:5 says ask for it and you will receive it. 3. Refuse to tolerate thoughts of inferiority. The world isn t smarter than you. You are the temple of the Holy Spirit. You have power, love and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). Royalty destroys inferiority. (Romans 5:17) 4. Expect God to give you hidden treasures and riches. Isaiah 43:5 says, And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I am the LORD, which call thee by thy name. 5. Be success inside minded. Refuse to accept the idea of failure or defeat in your life. See yourself as a success no matter what it looks like. You are the giant in the land, not the grasshopper. (Numbers 13:30) 6. Accept the Bible as your Economy Text Book. There are about 1600 verses in the Bible that have to do with money. God knew these days
59 would come and gave you the ammunition you need. Use it. THINK IT & SAY IT: I reject the idea that I am not smart enough for today s economy. I have the mind of Christ and refuse to tolerate inferiority. I expect the hidden treasures from God. I receive wisdom today to succeed financially and refuse to accept lack or defeat. I am success-inside minded, leading to success on the outside as well, in Jesus Name.
60 DAY 29 "I'M NOT THAT GOOD WITH MONEY." Today we re fasting from the thought that says, I m not that good with money. LET'S CHANGE IT TODAY: 1. YES YOU ARE. You ARE good with money! You are made in the image of God (Genesis 1:27) AND you ve been given 1600 scriptures about money! You are equipped! 2. Don t think good. Think faithful. God s economic system is built upon faithfulness. Luke 16:11 faithful with the little, and you will be faithful with much. 3. It s a test. It s only a test. Don t see money as just a means to pay your bills. See money as a test. When you change how you look at it as a test you will find a way to pass the test, and move on to the true riches God wants to give you. (Luke 16:12) 4. Expect abounding blessings. Proverbs 28:20 says a faithful man will abound with blessing. If you re not abounding, check your faithfulness in tithing, giving, and serving. 5. Think K.I.S.S. - Keep It Simple Saint! Simplify your financial life. Put God first by tithing & offering; then, spend less than you earn after that; then save what s left. (John 2:5) Don t complicate it. THINK IT & SAY IT: I am made in the image of God and have the wisdom of God. I am good
