Supernatural Work Life

Rich in Every Way

One day I was thinking of all the bad news on TV.

“It’s just one view they’re presenting” I told myself.

And I ached for God’s perspective on events, asking Him to “grow my sense of being seated in heavenly places.” (Ephesians 2:6)

Then I realised that He’s already doing that and thanked Him for it. And I told myself, “don’t ask for something when He’s already at work doing it.”

You see, thanking Him from a place of ‘knowing’ is superior to asking from a place of ‘need’. For if we keep asking for what we already have, we are choosing poverty.

It’s like asking for food when the table in front of us is laden with every morsel we could ever wish for.

Thanking God for being rich is the road to receiving the ‘abundant life’ that Christ has won for us all. Asking in poverty merely gives our enemy a foothold to ‘kill, steal and destroy’. (John 10:10, Ephesians 4:27)

Let’s not do that!

Instead, join me today in thanking God that we are rich in every way in Christ. (Philippians 4:19)

And let’s keep thanking Him everyday!

Kingdom Business

Defining Success

A major bank ran this ad line:
“Success is being the best in the business.”

Not for the Kingdom Builder it isn’t!
In fact, competition doesn’t come into it at all. Cooperation with the Holy Spirit is the essential requirement.

“Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.”

Christ is the King and it’s His kingdom company we build, not our own.

So, success starts with knowing Jesus.
Like He said,

“Apart from me you can do nothing.”

Kingdom Business

Unleashing the Spirit

Jesus has won a place for us in heaven!

“And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him
in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.”

Kingdom Builders in the business and working community reside in heaven with Christ, and God uses their business activities as a vehicle through which Kingdom culture flows into the earth.

Success is less dependant upon the practice of a ‘marketing & sales’ strategy and more on spiritual position first and subsequent spiritual mobility.

“For in him we live and move and have our being.”

For, just like a yacht moves in the water by the wind against its sails,  so the Holy Spirit blows the Kingdom Business towards the direction of the Father’s specified requirements. That is, Kingdom impact upon the people community.

“My father is always at work.”

Our Father longs to unleash His Spirit into the business and working community, and Kingdom Businesses are a vehicle of His choice.

Briefly Potent

Lost Light

Comparing ourselves to others will steal our unique identity.


By this behaviour, common to all, the shadow of idolatry
darkens God’s revelation-light from our lives.

This leaves us barren of knowing who we really are
and what our true purpose on earth is.

Jesus said, “I am the light of the world.”


He is also your revelation-light today!

God's Presence, Kingdom revival

Top Priority

“Walk in my presence and be thou perfect.”

God’s presence is indispensable for bringing the culture of heaven
to our places of influence.

We cannot achieve the all-important kingdom perspective without the King!

Therefore its cultivation with Him should be our top priority at all times.

Prayer of the heart alone (not of the head or understanding) 
brings us into God’s presence, and maintained without interruption 

This is the stuff of personal, regional, national
and international revival, no less!

“The consciousness of God is the spirit of revival”

Each Day

Bald Eagle flying and hunting

I wake and worship

Am lifted up and soar

Higher and higher

 

I hover, fluttering

Eagerly expectant

Then he comes

 

Holy Spirit carries me away

I’m riding his thermal wave

And so we begin another day

Creating the Future

Let’s not devise our own future today.

But align with God and enter that which

He already has waiting for us in eternity.

Without a close relationship with Him we’ll miss it,

And merely recreate one

From the smallness of our own minds.

The Hardest Test

When money is removed from the centre of our lives and placed elsewhere, how hard that is for us.

It is the greatest challenge of trusting God’s faithfulness most of us will ever face.

Yet without this test we will stay loyal to mammon and the treasures of Christ’s Kingdom will pass us by.

 ‘For where your treasure is there your heart will be also.’
