    Ep. 127 | How To Walk in Truth 100% Of The Time

    Ep. 127 | How To Walk in Truth 100% Of The Time

    What is the fruit that comes from the truth?

    Freedom.

    Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” - John 8:31-32

    Knowing the truth makes you free. The Greek word translated "make" means to deliver, make free, and liberate. It comes from a root word that means unrestrained. So think about this for a moment: if knowing the truth has the power to liberate you and allow you to be unrestrained, then does that mean that not knowing the truth will keep you restrained and in bondage?

    In my opinion, yes it does.

    Yet, your brain can work against you from knowing the truth. See, your brain is designed to keep you alive, and the belief systems you hold tell your brain what is important and what is not. Essentially, what that means, is that your brain will receive any information that is contrary to your current belief system as a threat. It will be more inclined to prove the information is wrong than to examine it for truth.

    In today's episode, we will break down how you can always walk in truth and not let your brain stay stuck in a belief system that might be keeping you stuck in bondage. I also share three steps you can take to always be in a state of mind that allows for the truth to win.

    Don't forget that God put everything in place for you to succeed in your purpose. However, you can miss out on that assignment if you don't take action on the TRUTHS and break away from faulty thinking. The purpose of life is not just trying to survive but to live a life that brings glory to his kingdom and is attractively different.

    Key Takeaways:


    Your brain is looking for evidence to validate your current beliefs. So when you receive information that is contrary to a belief you hold your mind wants to prove it wrong.
    Failing to receive information with an open mind indicates that you're more concerned about being right instead of getting it right
    The zeal of others can lead you astray and cause you to miss the truth if you don't create a habit of verifying the information for yourself.
    You cannot lose with this mindset. You either confirm that what you have is truth or you've now found the truth and can now walk in greater freedom.

    Ep. 126 | How To Know If You're Trusting In God Or Your Resources

    Ep. 126 | How To Know If You're Trusting In God Or Your Resources

    Friend, have you ever let the cares of life pull you away from yielding your entire heart to God? If you're anything like me then the answer is yes, and today's show will give you a practical way to know when you're trusting in your resources. Yes, there have been season in life where you hold on tightly to your resources because it doesn't feel like there will be enough. Yet, we know that God's desire for us is to trust Him as the source instead of trusting in the resources.

    In today's episode we're going to dive into Jesus' teaching on this topic from His sermon on the mount found in Matthew 6:22-23. Jesus said, " The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!"

    Jesus is using a Hebrew idiom that is referring to generosity and stinginess. A good or healthy eye is an eye that looks out for the needs of others, but a bad or unhealthy eye does not see the needs of others due to looking out for your own needs. Yet, here's the problem, when you focus on your own needs and miss the needs of others then the result is that you'll miss the path that God has for your life.

    Friend, God wants to use you as a place of blessing for those around you. He wants to know that you are faithful to His plan and that you can be trusted to do His assignments. He has put everything in place for you to succeed in your purpose. However, you can miss out on that assignment if you don't take action on the TRUTHS and break away from faulty thinking. The purpose of life is not just trying to survive but to live a life that brings glory to his kingdom and is attractively different.

    Key Takeaways:


    Saving your money and giving resentfully is a sign that you're trusting in money and wealth
    If you're worried about the basics of life (food you will eat and clothes you wear) then you will have a difficult time seeing the needs of others
    Generosity and stinginess are more about the posture of your heart than the amounts in your bank account
    People who don't know God will have to trust in their wealth because they don't know the promises of      God

    Ep. 125 | The Unseen Element Destroying God's People

    Ep. 125 | The Unseen Element Destroying God's People

    As a believer, knowing God and trusting in His character is crucial to succeeding in your assignment. Yet, there are many believers (… and you may be one) who have some big questions for God and are unsure if He's as trustworthy as the church tells them.

    In today's episode, we dive into the idea of "Knowing God" and a lack of knowledge will destroy His people. We're going to dive into the story of Job and how God rebuked him for His "words without knowledge." I also share a real life story that demonstrates this principle and how incorrect beliefs or assumptions will create obstacles in your life.

    In His word, God has put everything in place for you to succeed in your purpose. However, you can miss out on that assignment if you don't take action on the TRUTHS and break away from faulty thinking. The purpose of life is not just trying to survive but to live a life that brings glory to his kingdom and is attractively different.

    Key Takeaways:


    Not knowing God and His character can lead to inaccurate conclusions
    In the story of Job, Job believed that God gives and takes away but God corrects him and says his words are without knowledge
    To "know God" you must start have a correct lens of his character. The Bible says that He is good and that He does not change.
    Religion and traditions can pass down incorrect thinking about God. You must be willing to receive the information but seek God's word to determine if it is true.

    Ep. 124 - How The Elite Multiply Their Money

    Ep. 124 - How The Elite Multiply Their Money

    If you're a person who wants to advance God's kingdom and make an impact then there's one major skill set that you need to acquire. In today's episode we talk about how this skill set gets revealed in the parable of the talents but is hardly ever talked about.

    What's the skill set?

    It's the skill set of being able to multiply our money.

    There's always a focus on the lazy servant because we want to avoid pain but rarely do we focus on the two who were called good and faithful. What made them good and faithful and what skills did they possess?

    When you look at the parable you'll find three different levels of money management. One allows for the money to be multiplies, one will growth your money, and the third method does neither. Listen to this episode with an open mind and genuinely ask yourself … are you pursuing the same skills and mindset that the two "good and faithful servants" possessed?

    Key Takeaways:


    Three different levels of money management and two multiply it
    We're called to buy back our time and learning how to multiply your money is how that is done
    There's a wide spread narrative that you can't manage it yourself and trust the institutions because they know how to trade with it.
    When you learn the level 1 skill set then you'll be trusted with more and the higher assignments in God's kingdom

    Ep. 123 | The Mystery Harvest Principle

    Ep. 123 | The Mystery Harvest Principle

    As you know, walking by faith and not by sight is easier said than done. Yet, I recently discovered a simple principle that, if applied, will create the momentum needed for you to live a life where you are walking by faith and not by sight.

    What's this simple, yet profound, principle?

    It's the principle of the mystery harvest.

    In today's episode, I share with you what the mystery harvest is and how you can apply it to your life as you learn to live a kingdom life. In Matthew 6:33, Jesus instructed his listeners to "seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteous"… and what would happen? "All of these things will be added to you."

    Well, "all of these things" are what we worry about when we're unsure if there will be provision.

    If you've every struggled with this worry then you need to understand and apply the mystery harvest principle.

    Key Takeaways:


    This principle helps you stay in the kingdom mindset so you can stay focused on your God given assignment and not get stuck in anxiety, worry, or doubt.
    This principle will posture your heart correctly so you can receive what God has for you, which means your life will be a direction reflection of Him and bring Him glory.
    This is in alignment with what Jesus taught in Mark 11:24. This verse talks about how you can know that you will receive what you prayed for which means you can      walk confidently and expectantly in your God-given assignment.
    This is a great example of how to have the child-like faith Jesus called for us to have, and when you operate in this child like faith you'll be positioned to be faithful with more of God's assignments.

    Ep. 122 | 5 Reasons You Don’t Take Action

    Ep. 122 | 5 Reasons You Don’t Take Action

    Taking action is extremely important because you would never accomplish anything if you never took action. Yet, if you're anything like me, there are many times in life where you find yourself failing to take action. Just as Paul said in his letters … he doesn't do what he wants to do and finds himself doing the things that he doesn't want to do.

    In today's episode, we discuss the five reasons that stop you from taking action and how to remove those blocks in order to start taking action. If you're honest with yourself, the reality is that it can be scary at times to take action, and this fear can put you in a state of mind where you are just trying to survive. It's a fight, flight, or freeze. This episode is going to help you diagnose why you're not taking action and breakthrough that obstacle to start moving forward and creating momentum.

    Remember, God has put everything in place for you to succeed in your life purpose. The purpose of life is not just trying to survive but to live a life that brings glory to his kingdom and is attractively different.

    Key Takeaways:


    The biggest obstacle to you taking action is lacking the belief that you will succeed.
    The mind rejects confusion and will not move forward without clarity
    Belief and know-how are not enough … you have to have the skill set
    Learning how to be resourceful is more important than having the resources
