Abundance Thinking vs. How To Keep Your Faith Activated Until You See Results

Today I want to share with you how I keep my faith activated until I see results without abundance thinking or manifestation tools.  I had to grow my business after an identity theft for almost a million dollars and in the beginning of the great recession.

I’d be lying to say I didn’t feel completely d-e-s-p-e-r-a-t-e in the beginning. Some of it was because I wasn’t sure I had what it took to coach and be successful and then next do I have what it takes to grow and be profitable. Almost everything I found on mindset training early on in my business was abundance or manifestation thinking from a universal perspective. As in I visualize, I love myself and I expect the “universe” wants to send me blessings.

It was SO FRUSTRATING because I needed basic how to get leads consistently business training and the people I saw were either super hype, talk about me,me,me and my millions I have made for everyone, wine glasses in the air (like sign me up, she drinks wine and takes great vacations) or literally one with the universe people.  I literally found no one doing no cussing, no hype or non fear-based business coaching (that’s when you drive people with how they are going to miss out over and over again, or stay poor, naked and alone.) You laugh until you see it over and over again. Sigh.

And here’s the thing I never hear anyone explain and I might be the only one who had to solve this but honestly I think in the church we need to do a better job on pointing out what’s at the heart of all the abundance thinking. It’s idolatrous and I will explain to you why I think that and why I never would attend any business coach training that used this. Or at least twice:) I can eat the chicken and spit out the bones but don’t want to choke to death and pay good money for an underlying rip current to my faith. I think God has better for those who love him. So let me explain what I say all this.

First of all, let’s be on the same page about what idolatry means. To me, it’s anything that distracts from the cross and Jesus Christ as Lord and savior of the world. He died because we were sinners and could not be reconciled by our own efforts and return to co-creating (stewarding in the garden) with the Father a life that glorifies Him. All blessings flow from Jesus and the Father so to try and go around Him and get your own way without acknowledging Jesus is Lord means you’re trying go around the door and into the wide path. First question for anyone who you follow in business should be, Do you believe that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way and all blessings flow from Him. If they can’t say yes or they say I believe there are lots of ways, walk away. Here’s a great read on Rees Howell intercessor about how he prayed in faith and fed orphans supernaturally. This man will change your prayer life! 

Next, I think you need to be clear about your identity in Christ (prayer & dealing with spiritual warfare) and also about solidifying your personal leadership identity (boundaries, skills and talents)  Here’s a video that explains that if you are not sure what I am talking about.  This is important because you have to grow your LEADERSHIP AND SKILLS in conjunction with your PRAYER LIFE if you want to be profitable in business. Every year you have to be generating new leads, solving problems and serving people well.

Third, I believe God has called us to co-create our lives with Him by discerning our natural talents, spiritual gifts and stewarding them with excellence. We aren’t to sit around waiting on some angel or prophetic person to give us a word of God.  Before the Fall we were placed to name and steward and work with God. God expects us to grow what he gives us without hiding due to not understanding his nature.  This is clear in the parable about the faithful steward.

Fourth, Christ came to show us how to overcome the adversary and become ambassadors for Him in our work. And this is where I think there is not enough teaching in the church and why I wrote 4 Phases Of Spiritual Warfare because not everyone is called into full time ministry and honestly, most Christians underestimate that spiritual success comes from laying down your life and learning how to overcome adversity God’s way. Sometimes people want to pick how God will use them instead of just being okay with what he worked into their lives and what people really need.  This in my perspective is how messages are created that glorify God. They come from tests being turned into TESTIMONIES. If you can align your natural love for teaching into a speaking or coaching business that glorifies God this is a no brainer for me. Sign me up!

Fifth, here’s my interpretation of the abundance/manifestation thoughts. It’s about solving lack, failure and other fear-based thinking through repeating to yourself you are just wonderful and aligning yourself with a core belief of Hey! Everything is going to work out great if you just believe that the universe wants to work with you and not against you. Here’s the problem with that. I believe without Christ I am a HOT MESS. Ask my husband. Ask my kids. I have an enemy who wants to kill, steal and destroy my faith, my marriage, my children and my testimony.  God has told me to sober and diligent and do certain things to preserve unity, stay in fellowship with other believers and be able to point people towards Christ as the one and only Lord and savior of the universe.

Now let me explain abundance through your identity in Christ and a faith filled mindset:

God has given you a spirit of power, love and sound mind. Your mission is to make disciples in your family, your friendships and in your work. You are an overcomer by the blood of the lamb and the word of your testimony and you love your life not even unto death. Not everything will work out to make you happy or feel good. You will be hated and persecuted for standing up for Christ. However, God says to you, the plans he has for you are to prosper you and to bring you to an expected end so that you can be a light on a hill. He’s going to send you to preach, teach and pray for people to be healed because you faced adversity in Christ and God gave you grace to get through it. He says to forcefully deal with demonic forces with prayer, fasting and speaking the word to invisible and oppressive forces. And guess what? You’re seated with Christ in the heavenlies far above powers and high places so walk in your authority today and use your identity in Christ. You are a force to be reckoned with because of the work He did. 

Note: You will never hear these abundance people talk about prayer, fasting and preaching Christ resurrected. Why? Because they are drawing you away from dependence on Christ and into self reliance.

Here’s a couple sum ups:

  1. I believe if you want to finish your faith strong and be successful in your personal leadership and business, you will have to solve with militancy how your going to overcome self-limiting beliefs. This is the stuff you say to yourself when you feel lack, the places in your identity where you are incongruent (say one thing, do another) and what you do when you when you are stressed beyond belief. These 3 things will make or break your success. This is primarily what I teach in my Leadership Track because the statistics say that up to 50% of the church come from an addiction based background. That’s a lot of stinking thinking!
  2. In today’s video I talk to you about some practical examples of how to keep your faith activated in prayer and match your confession with it until you see results. This works in your personal life and business without new age techniques. I share with you time tested breakthrough tips I use.
  3. Here’s the Mindset Retreat I do once a year in November. I go into more training on Abundance there.

3 Tips For Staying Consistent With Your Marketing During Overwhelm

What makes the difference between growing a business or quitting? Perseverance.

Often times it isn’t the most talented individual or the person with the most marketing money who is successful, it’s the person who simply will not quit and keeps investing into their vision by FAITH!  I believe one of the things that enables us to persevere to the end of a vision, through confusion, is simply coming to a place where our natural strength is gone and we have to ask God to give us a supernatural faith to finish. The enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy so you must guard you daily prayer time and your faith in Christ. Here’s a quick way to discern how to persevere through a trial.

FAITH will always be future oriented. It gives you an expected hope and end. FEAR will remind you of where you failed, who you can’t trust, why you can’t move forward due to lack and why you can’t be successful.

Here’s what you need to know about starting and finishing your vision. You will have moments when you’re exhausted and you’re ready to quit. That is the time you have to pray and ask God to ignite you for the sake of others.  I try never to put my hand to something that is all about me because I know myself. I will quit. However, if I am serving others, I will always finish because I am motivated by love.

It makes no difference whether you want to lose 50 pounds or speak for Christ in your business. These principles apply.

  1. Become militantly aware of your thoughts.

This is the first battleground and where most people fail. Satan will always inject a fear-based thought that you think is your own and if you don’t reject it immediately, he will grow it.

2.  Believe God wants to give you victory and your footsteps and circumstances are ordered by him even thought they feel completely overwhelming.  

When you see the compassion and works of Christ, you know he is simply reflecting his Father. Your Father wants to heal. He wants to provide. He wants to bring mercy where there is judgment. HE IS A GOOD DAD! When you fail, you simply run back to your Dad and ask for forgiveness and that you can yield to the work he wants to do in your life. When you have trouble, turmoil and challenges, go to the Lord and say this:

Lord Jesus, I accept all you bring by your hand. However, if this trial is from Satan, I resist it and I ask you Lord to illuminate to me in prayer if this a demonic attack. Learn how to pray and take patterns and repetitive challenges into prayer with you. God will show you if it is an obstacle that he has brought to conform you to the image of Christ or if it is from the pit of hell and you are to resist, pray and stand strong until he flees. Most of what you will deal with will be oppression not discipline from God.

3.    Plan on sharing your testimony with others. Today because you can’t be a victim and a victor at the same time. 

We have overcome through the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony. Revelation 12:11

Always tell the Lord in prayer that you can’t wait to share this victory story with others. The enemy wants to suffocate and restrict, he loves pity. Loves painting you as a victim because it detracts from your sonship/daughtership in Christ! When people ask you how you are doing, or how things are going, ALWAYS SHARE something God has done to move your forward rather than what is lacking. Even in the midst of a fiery trial, this will keep you full of faith. If people ask you how they can pray, share with them that you want prayer that your faith will stay activated and passionate and that God’s will be done. You will see tremendous increase in your life from declaring the praises of God DURING the battle and what God is going to do for you AHEAD. Remember David and Goliath!

Why Do I Lose My Consistency?

When you have momentum, and you feel like you are obeying God as he leads you, it greatly increases your confidence.

Learning how to become a consistent person helps others see us a stable, and they respect us more because we become the kind of person who DOES what we say we will do. It’s simple.

But if you find that you have started to obey God in the projects, goals, hopes he has given you but you compromised or quit, this can be hugely frustrating. Let alone totally sabotage you from believing you’re the kind of person who can see God do BIG things in your life. You can choose to view inconsistency as a personality issue, weakness of the flesh OR you can by His grace, receive a revelation of how to overcome.

In my experience as I have attempted to follow Christ faster, there are a couple strategies that I believe will encourage you.

I’ll talk to you about that in today’s video!

Spiritual Warfare Or Discipline From God?

I remember a time in my life where I would tell people I must be the most loved woman on the planet because all I got night and day from the Lord was discipline. The truth was I was pretty rebellious when I came to the Lord, and it took me a while to learn how to trust God the Father that he had my best intentions in mind when he brought something to my attention he wanted to work on. This is why doing identity work is imperative if you want to break out of poverty mentalities and fulfill your purpose. 

As I began to learn how to be an overcomer,  more ministry opportunities opened up, and I started to have an impact in the kingdom through my prayers and actions. As this happened, I began to get TREMENDOUS spiritual warfare. If you don’t know how to recognize the difference, you will feel held back and unclear in your identity.

SPIRITUAL WARFARE

1. You are making a stand for righteousness in your family, work or community where you have to put healthy boundaries into place where there have been none.
2. You are being persecuted because you have preached Christ rather than self-help, new age doctrines or idolatry. You are actively praying and speaking to people about receiving Christ and getting tension for it.
3. You are declaring Christ in regions of the world that are closed to the gospel.
4. You are in the process of getting delivered from worldly lust like addictions, mammon or witchcraft. (yes, witchcraft, satanic cults and all those things we don’t like to talk about are real and produce spiritual warfare when you come out of it) Breaking out of curses, rebellion can also cause spiritual warfare.

The discipline of the Lord comes when he has given you an instruction, and you are not yielding to the Holy Spirit. Often God is attempting to form a testimony in your life and create a healthy fear and respect for you so that he can BLESS and answer your prayers to send you with POWER. His discipline gets harder and harder when you don’t listen to the Holy Spirit convicting you first and then the people he put in your life to guard you. Here are a couple of ways I have experienced the discipline of the Lord and got my chain yanked. 

DISCIPLINE

1. The Lord point blank told me to stop watching horror movies, and it took a very scary spiritual situation to open my eyes. Never watched another horror movie after the Holy Spirit disciplined me.
2. The Lord told me through a close friend that I was seeking affirmation (in idolatry) from leaders, and I didn’t listen because I was so wrapped up in people pleasing. I experienced a very embarrassing public situation.
3. The Lord asked me to stop arguing with people and just pray. It was more important to me to right than be in the relationship. The Lord let me experience many broken friendships, and anxiety until I realized I didn’t have to defend myself he would.
4. God told me to block time to step out of ministry and into prayer and life coaching. I kept hesitating, and I got convicted and anxious. I was scared of FAILURE, but when I finally repented for not trusting God and obeyed, I began to have peace and prosper.

Faith forward! Love, Bec:)

 

12 Strategies For More Courage

Do you have a desire to see people set free? Do you hold back doing the work like blogging, speaking or mentoring because you feel overwhelmed yourself?

YOU’RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE! Get your coffee!!! You, me! Coaching corner!

First, all influencers deal with fear. First, it’s the fear of what people will think if I get out there in a bigger way. Then it’s the fear of what if I don’t do a great job coaching or speaking! The fear of how do I run my business? Here’s the thing!

It’s normal to second guess yourself when you are entering into unknown territory! But when you have decided you’re tired of the enemy holding you back and you want to be used by God, you have prioritize what it takes to give you courage! When you are in a fight, in order to win, you have to become strategic about WINNING once and for all. If you are a Christian, you have an extra arsenal at your disposal. Your identity in Christ!

Even though your salvation is instant, the process to become an overcomer requires TRAINING. Here’s a little cheat sheet I made up for when you’re dealing with fear and need some practical steps on how to overcome it. Ask me how I developed this:)

Be as militant about solving fear and transforming other people for the kingdom because the enemy is really committed about squelching your testimony!

It’s not hormones, overwhelm, lack of vitamins! Quit trying to figure it out… You’re NOT BROKEN! You’re under spiritual warfare! It’s SOLVABLE if you do the work! Get ready to turn this test into a testimony!

1. Get up at 5 am with coffee and start speaking over yourself AFFIRMATIONS on who you want to become with God’s help.  Not a morning person? Quit speaking that over yourself. You’re a morning person now.  Ask God for more courage.  Speak strongly, do not THINK affirmations. Say them!

2. At lunch, take your sneakers and gym clothes to work. Quit yakking on the phone with friends about who did you wrong. Put on your praise music and walk fast or run for 1 hour and listen to your favorite worship music. Worship is WARFARE that confuses the enemy. Praise breaks demonic strongholds in your life.

3. Eat a protein every 2 1/2 hours to keep blood sugar stable. Fatigue creates double-mindedness and anxiety. I keep food and water in my car and eat every three hours.

4. Call a friend to agree with you in prayer that you will be an overcomer in this area and Christ will have a testimony that glorifies himself. Expect it. Tell people it’s coming. Use social media as a weapon of praise for Christ not griping about politics.

5. Do not talk about your anxiety or fear with anyone else after committing it to prayer and with a friend. Rehearsing what may happen does nothing but saturate your body with anxiousness. When someone asks you how you’re doing, tell them you’re expecting a breakthrough.

6. When realizing you are visualizing a bad outcome, just redirect thoughts an out-loud quote a scripture that will give you courage. (Jesus didn’t think answers to the devil, he spoke the word out-loud. It’s a sword, use it.)

7. Avoid negative, critical people, any TV programs or movies that are fear based or reflect people becoming victimized. You can’t be a victim and a victor at the same time.  Pray and ask God for a solution to this challenge.

8. When you get ANY idea’s, act on them immediately. Evaluate outcome and lean in the direction of anything that took you one step closer to victory.

9. Think of two or three friends that you respect in this area that have been over-comers. Ask them for their best tips. Quit trying to hide and save your pride. Let it die so you can get resurrection.  Even if you tried it already, do it again with faith.

10. During the day, pause internally and just acknowledge the presence of Christ. He is with you, he never leaves you or will abandon you. Just inwardly drawing near will give you more peace.

11. Get out in sunshine for 1 hour a day. Vitamin D elevates your mood. Listen to the birds, take your dog for a walk. Pet your cat. Animals are God’s gift.

12. Get a good night sleep and try to resist sugar. Run to God and try not to medicate with food or alcohol. It only gives temporary relief rather than God’s peace which will point to Him. If people ask you how you are doing, tell them that you expect the best and describe what you are hoping happens. Make sure to smile when you share where you are going in faith! This is not fake it till you make it, this is SPEAKING order to the chaos. (Genesis 1)

If so, I would love to send you my free START NOW package which helps you begin taking the actions to grow your writing, speaking and coaching in a profitable and influential way!

How To End Yo-Yo Commitments In Your Life

Do you struggle with seeing yourself as inconsistent and unable to finish what you start? Do you tell yourself or others you are ADHD?  Can’t keep a thought in your head? Unorganized and forgetful? Always coming up with great idea’s but never executing? Then here’s what you need to know. You have experienced an identity theft and you can take back this ground spiritually. In other words, you need to do the work to discover WHO YOU HAVE ALWAYS BEEN in Christ. Many Christians make the mistake of trying harder or beating themselves up.  Inconsistency and double-mindedness is spiritual warfare and self-help is never going to help transform you.

It makes no difference what your personality type is, your intelligence quotient or who is not giving you the support you feel like you need. Simply put, commitment comes from WHO YOU ARE identity-wise.  And here’s what’s even more powerful. Finishing strong every time comes from you making a decision to remind and confess who you are in Christ every time the enemy tries to label in the way he desires. This means you can completely reframe and renew every area of your life where you feel like you want to experience new results. It makes no difference whether you apply this principle to weight, your educational goals, building loyal friendships, finances or any other area where you want to see long-term results.

What’s more, becoming a person who set’s goals and finishes what they begin isn’t complicated. To become who you have already been a Christ, you only need to do two things:

  1. Clarify if this objective is within the will of God and what specific way it will glorify Him.
  2. Remind yourself who you are in Christ and what your goal is daily until you complete it.

Remember, the kingdom of God is not complicated, it just requires FAITH. So let’s talk about how you take your mustard seed faith and apply it to this identity crisis.

1. Is This Goal Going To Glorify God If You Finish It?

This is one of the first things you want to ask yourself if you are a Christian. Will this goal bring you peace, righteousness, and joy to finish it? When you complete it will you be able to show your love practically to people as well as serve them? Will it be a blessing to them? When people ask you how you did it, will it open up doors for you to give a testimony about God’s finishing strength? If you can answer yes to these questions then I can assure you, it’s in God’s will.

2. Remind Yourself WHO You Are In Christ Daily!

Christ finished the race that was given to HIM by his heavenly Father because he was clear on his identity and his mission. Here is an identity prayer that you can pray to bring down the LIE you have received that you are double-minded, inconsistent or ADHD. It is a lie if you are a Christian because YOU ARE IN CHRIST and he was an overcomer! The word of God is a SHARP, double-edged sword. It is alive and active, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart and you will discover WHO YOU REALLY ARE! Able to do all things through Christ Jesus!

Father in the name of Jesus, I repent for agreeing with the enemy’s plans for my life that I become double-minded, frustrated and unable to build the kingdom of God. I break every word curse I have spoken over myself and other’s have spoken over my life. I plead the blood of Jesus over my goal to=>Insert Goal here! I thank you Lord for giving me a finish faith according to Philippians 4:13 that I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me. Thank you Lord Jesus, that I have overcome through the blood of the lamb and the word of my testimony and I love my life not even unto death according to Revelation 12:11. I thank you for making me mentally tough to finish this goal and the perseverance I need to see this goal come to pass so that it glorifies you. Today, I AM in you and because of that, I will finish strong and impact others for the kingdom with my testimony!
