Prosperity Principle Musings

Recently there has been a lot of press on the prosperity principle. It basically states that if you align yourself with the 'Universe' you will attract that which you desire the most. Well I both agree and agree to disagree with this theory. You see, from what I have discovered through diligent investigation is that this theory emerged from L. Ron Hubbard (father of Dianetics). Scientology teachers are subtly trying to convince us that we are in charge of our own realities. However what they teach us is that each one of us is a god and THAT I can't abide!

I wholeheartedly agree though that it is possible to attract prosperity into your life. The fact is that when you align yourself with God and the principles He teaches us you will see His gentle hand of mercy in your life. What are those principles? Very simply put the lesson is to align yourself with Love! Yes, love. Love of God, family, others and lastly yourself. It is when you have a healthy, loving, relationship with God and family that He is able to share with you from His storehouse.

So how do I know that this is the case? Well let me share with you from my own experiences. In my early thirties I conducted an experiment that I recommend you give a try yourself if you doubt the credibility of my findings. For one year I diligently engaged in private devotions. I began with clearing my mind of all hindrances by quietly sitting and meditating on such things as the many names of
God. Then after my mind was totally focused on Him I began my prayer time and followed that with bible reading and study. This was the first thing I would do in the morning with my first cup of coffee. It was in that way I didn’t have to find time but rather I made time for my devotions. As a result I began to sense God's working in my life.

One particular event that I recall is when I went to bed one night and I felt a gentle tug in the pit of my stomach like I needed to get up and kneel by my beside and pray for a particular pastor and his wife that were heading up a new church plant. As I was already comfortably in bed I tried to lay that thought aside but it just kept prodding me and since I couldn’t sleep anyway I got up and began praying.

The next Sunday when I went to speak with pastor Tynsdale and his wife they informed me that at exactly the time I was praying they were meeting with a lady that was applying for the pianist position that turned out to be a Satan worshiper. Coincidence? I don't think so.

The next thing that happened was quite similar yet different. I founded a group of volunteers to mentor new online business owners. In doing so I committed the group to employ the prosperity principles promised in the Bible. One volunteer told me that I needed to tone down the 'God-thing' and when I told her I could not she decided that she was going to disassociate herself. Well it was at that time that the group began to flourish and today we have over 100 members.

The third thing that occurred is that I committed my business to the support of a missionary. I promised that missionary before they left on their tour of duty to Mongolia that I would support them with proceeds from my business. With that commitment made I began to see my business grow and flourish, so what did I do? Well, I committed even more of my business income to his support. I set a goal, if I made X number of dollars in a month I would give twice the percentage. Guess what happened next? Right, I had aligned myself with the right relationships and it began to shower blessings on me.

So I say to you, align yourself with the true prosperity principle. Our God is the owner of the wealth of the universe. So to align yourself with the universe is to fall short of your goal. Right alignment comes from putting God first, family second, others third, and yourself last. Remember you can't out-give God. If you don't believe me just give it a try.

Tip for Success


A simple blood test can save your life. Professional lab testing is now available to you without a doctor's appointment. If you are looking for ways to cut your medical costs this may be of great significance to you. I personally use this service and highly recommend you do too. Not having to pay my physician to write out a requisition form or to pay the cost of the test plus the commission
she would add on to that cost is a smart move in my book. If you agree and wish to find out more check out their website here:

The next time your doctor hands you a request for blood work to be done call the lab, get their pricing, and then check out the pricing with Preventive Labs. I think you will agree with me that bypassing the additional expense is well worth the extra effort.
