  • God can use your own strategy to do it too.

    I always thought that God gave Jacob the strategy to use the peeled poplar branches to produce the speckled and spotted flocks that made him rich off his unjust boss' herds (Read the backstory in Genesis 30:25-31:13). But that may not actually be the case. It never actually says God...
  • God can do it in 24 hours.

    I just assembled another petition toward God like I shared about last week. This one was for provision I'm requesting from Him quickly as I'm now practicing petitioning Him first when I have time-based needs vs going to myself / my business first. In the process of pulling together my scriptures for this petition, The Holy Spirit brought the following stories up in the Bible...
  • Petition God for your dream budget.

    A few weeks ago, God showed me a vision of poverty as if it were a guest in my house that I had been welcoming and making provision for; basically LIVING with. Poverty has been my roommate! After seeing that, I not-so-kindly told poverty to...
  • Ask God to open your eyes to your wealth.

    I recently found a new walking trail about a 3-minute drive from my house that takes you along this scenic route along water and nature. It truly feels like a gift that somehow I'm only just finding out about after living here for 7 years. How is that possible you may ask. It's possible because, until recently, the entire time I've lived here I...
  • God says you’re worthy.

    I can't explain it but there's just something about reminding yourself of what the body & blood of Christ did for you, by taking communion, that cleanses your conscience from condemnation (aka an unworthy mindset). It's just like how God provided this method for healing the...
  • You've prayed enough, now speak it into existence.

    I was studying Exodus recently and this passage stuck out to me because there's nowhere in the text, before Moses makes this statement, where God actually tells Moses that "they'll never see these Egyptians again" or that He will "fight for them". God did tell Moses that the Egyptians would chase after them & that He'd use this to display His glory to them (verse 4), but that was it. And it wasn't until...
  • God’s Word is the "income" you need

    Trying to understand what my baby niece is talking about sometimes can be almost impossible (and super cute of course 🥰). She'll be running her mouth saying all the things and I can tell SHE knows what she's talking about, but I can't understand a thing. Obviously it's because, at her current stage of development, she's still learning our language & how to form words into fully coherent sentences. One day, during one of our "conversations", I realized that this must be what we sound like to...
  • God needs you to get intimate with His Word

    This is kind of hard to admit, but up until this revelation I'm about to share with you hit me a few weeks ago, I've always kind of felt like I didn't have a relationship with Jesus like I did with the Father & the Holy Spirit 🙈 Of course my faith in what He accomplished for me via His death, burial & resurrection is solid, don't get me wrong now! But day-to-day...
  • Trust God & Make a Move.

    Do you have a decision or a move to make that you've been paralyzed about making? Have you been praying incessantly over it but still feel like you're not getting an answer from God? Or have you been paralyzed because you're trying to figure out how it's all going to work? Let me help you real quick...
  • Allow God to help you become.

    One of my close friends reached out to me for prayer last week around her weight loss journey. She had been doing everything right but, somehow, last week she gained weight instead of losing it and, as you can imagine, it was frustrating her to the point of tears. This is normally the time in her weight loss efforts that she just decides to give up because it's not worth it but she didn't want to give up this time. As I comforted her, the Holy Spirit brought a story I heard recently to mind that I also want to...
  • Build NOTHING out of fear.

    "Build nothing out of fear. Build only from & fueled by love." This word has been floating in my spirit since working on my company's vision last week. In the process of working on my vision, I experienced a fear reflex that went like...
  • Ask God to show you the money.

    I watched the movie “Eat, Pray, Love” for the first time last year and, there's a joke in the movie where this guy comes and prays to this statue of a saint everyday asking it to let him win the lottery. Finally, one day the statue comes alive and says “would you please buy a lottery ticket?!” That joke resonated so much with me that day because I had been asking God to
