40 Weeks of Financial Freedom & Peace - Week 7

As stated on my Jini Charley blog, I have been switching things up a bit. On the Jini Charley blog, I'll continue the 50 week study on Prosperity. On this blog, I'll continue the 40 week fast from from wrong thinking for financial freedom and peace. Once again, the 40 week fast is originally a 40 day fast (which I've decided to take weekly to allow more time for it to be absorbed in my way of thinking) started by Pastor Gregory Dickow from Life Changers International Church in Chicago, IL.

So without further delay, let's jump into this week's thought:

"Something that good could never happen to me."

This week 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 this week:

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..."

2. Think Big! Renew your mind to God's language. For example: "Ask for the nations" (Psalm 2); "Spea 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 are already positioned ABOVE our wildest dreams and expectations, so let's begin to expect them today!


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.

God bless..

The Christian C'Mon Man's

I look forward to the c'mon mans on ESPN Monday night countdown every week. If you are not familiar, this is a segment where the broadcasters take turns pointing out various mishaps and bonehead plays during the week, which makes them say "c',mon man." You knw, like a receiver that is wide open on third down and drops the ball...that kind of stuff.

I like to think of myself as a positive person and don't like drawing attention to the negative. However, after learning more about the Christian life the last few years I have become increasingly more frustrated with the way many things I see Christians do.

Don't get me wrong, I have done a lot of these things as well. So, this is more of a frustration with what people let the devil do in their lives and their lack of knowledge than it is a personal attack on them. Without further adieu, let's get to my top 5 Christian C'mon mans:

1) "Oh God be with me/us" - He said I will never leave you nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5) c'mon man

2) "God couldn't love me" - no sin is too great to overcome with Jesus, c'mon man. The Bible says, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9

3) "I hope I get to heaven one day" - C'mon man you should know that you are going there for the Bible says, That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9

4) "I'm only human" - born again believers are 1/3 wall to wall holy ghost c'mon man. You are comprised of a spirit, soul and body. The spirity part of you is now just as righteous and powerful as Jesus was. This is teaching from Andrew Wommack.

5) God is Sovereign, so He controls everything - Yes, I agree God is Sovereign if you are using the dictionary definition. As a noun, it means "A king, queen, or other noble person who serves as a chief of state; a ruler or monarch." As an adjective, the word sovereign speaks of something or someone being "Paramount or supreme."

But most people think if something bad happens it's because God is punishing them. That is not true. They say things like "God is angry" after a hurricane hits. God is not angry either. He satisfied all His wrath when Jesus died on the cross. God is not out to punish you. This topic needs more discussion, but just know that the Bible says we will reap what we sow and also, there is a devil out to get us as well. So, everything does not always end up the way God intended it to (Adam & Eve). God respects our free will, he does not force his will upon us. People have choices to make and those decisions determine what happens in this world.

Bonus - I don't have time for God - c'mon man, you do have time you just put God high enough on your priority list. The Bible says "seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Matthew 6:33. I heard somebody say before that our life on earth is like a blink of an eye compared to eternity. If you don't have revelation of this, I would encourage you to pray about it and spend with God in the morning if you can, to help get your day started on the right foot.
