How a Butterfly Flapping its Wings… Can Help You Get AHEAD in Life!

Did you know that weather forecasters can not predict the weather…. anymore than 5 to 7 days ahead of time? Why is this?

Because there are always subtle and tiny changes that occur within our atmosphere… and these tiny changes can add up and drastically change the outcome of the weather in a significant way.

That’s why it is said that a tiny butterfly flapping it’s wings… can cause a devastating tsunami to occur half-a-world away!! This phenemona is called the BUTTERFLY EFFECT.

This is what happened in The Butterfly Effect movie with Ashton Kutcher. He would go back in time… and the little, tiny, minor changes that he made in the past… had HUGE effects in the future!

I believe we can apply this Butterfly Effect in our lives also. Sometimes, when we are trying to get somewhere in life… or if we are trying to attain a position… we try to make HUGE leaps and bounds all at once! What happens more times than not, is we get burned out by the process… and give up.

Now taking huge leaps like this can work for you if you’re TOTALLY 110% dedicated to achieving your goal. For instance, I had a major surgery in early-March… and dropped about 18 lbs. within that next week. When I got well enough to start lifting weights again, I made a goal to myself that I would QUICKLY gain 20-25 lbs. of pure muscle in 6 weeks. I am currently on Week 4 of my plan… and have gained 13 lbs. of muscle. I’m a bit behind schedule… but I’m totally committed!

All that took dedication… it took heart… it took me FORCING myself to eat when I’m not hungry (5-6 meals a day, about 4000 calories a day)… it took me downing NASTY protein drinks and protein bars that taste like cardboard paper… it took me forcing myself to get 8 hours of sleep at minimum a day… and it took me forcing myself to go to the gym 3 times a week and throwing weights around like I was Conan the Barbarian.

But for most people, QUICK change is NOT necessary (most of the time)… and it is 10 x easier for you to implement SMALLER changes over a longer amount of time… rather than to implement LARGE changes over a short amount of time.

For instance, I could have decided to gain 20-25 lbs. of muscle in 6 months (instead of 6 weeks)… which would only require me to gain about 1 lb. a week which is pathetically easy! Doing it this way, would allow me an easier process to attaining my goal… and would also increase the chance that I don’t get burned out by trying to acheive the goal.

The same can be applied in almost any area of your life. If you want to write a 100-page book… using the BUTTERFLY EFFECT… you can say to yourself, “I want to accomplish that in 6 months (about 182 days), so that means I only need to write HALF A PAGE a day.” That’s it! How easy is that??

If you want to build a online business that guarantees you financial freedom… take the BUTTERFLY EFFECT method. Say to yourself, I will concentrate all my efforts to make $20 that FIRST month. Once you have hit that goal, the next month focus for making $40. Then the next month focus on hitting $80… then $160… then $320… then $640… then $1280… then $2560… you get the point!

All the big goals that we set for ourselves in lives… can be acheived by hitting small goals that lead up to the big one! That is why it is said the ONLY way to eat an elephant… is by taking one small bite at a time.

Jesus once said to His disciples… “Anything is POSSIBLE to you… if you BELIEVE”. Believe today friend… and you WILL achieve great and mighty things!

Be blessed and walk in God’s rich abundance today!

And The Rocks WILL Cry Out!

As Jesus was entering into Jerusalem for the last time of his three-year ministry… he was praised and cheered on by multitudes of EXCITED people along the road… who had witnessed or heard about the miracles and healings he had performed on others.

The Bible declares that these people began to, “…joyfully praise God in LOUD voices for all the miracles they had seen.

But not everyone was ecstatic about him coming to town… and some even had a chip on their shoulder. Luke 19:39 talks about these folks, the Pharisees (a group of intelligent Jewish scholars and teachers). It says that they confronted Jesus and said: “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!”

Basically what they were saying, if I could translate it to our language of today was this: “Teacher, tell all these people who are out here acting a fool to SHUT UP!”

Jesus’ response to the Pharisees was this: “I tell you the truth… if these people keep quiet, the rocks will CRY out!”

—-

This past weekend, I was in a service where a woman who had been dealing with a SEVERE case of open skin and bone infection of her ankle and foot was healed after 5+ years of dealing with this critical condition. The case of infection was so SEVERE, that the doctors had told her at one point, it would be best to amputate her foot to prevent the infection from spreading to the rest of her body and killing her!

This woman had went in to the doctor’s office… and BEFORE the nurses had removed the bandage to examine her wounds, she testified that she began to cry out to God and thank Him for healing her foot (Keep in mind, this was BEFORE the bandage had been unwrapped). The nurse continued to unwrap the foot, and to all the medical personell’s astonishment… that decaying foot was healed!

Even at the church service, a few days after her coming back from the doctor’s office… she continued to praise God in a LOUD voice, for what He had done for her as she told the whole congregation about what had happened and how God had worked.

I say this, to say this: Anytime God does anything great for you… you have a RIGHT, a PRIVILEGE, and a RESPONSIBILITY to praise God in a LOUD voice!

It doesn’t matter what people think… what people around you may say… people may call you a fool… you might look crazy silly… but chances are, God isn’t doing too much for those folks anyways, so who cares what they think!

After all, if Ed McMahon knocked at your front door and was holding a big, oversizes check in has hand… and you had all your friends and family over at your house… I can GUARANTEE you’d probably be jumping up and down, knocking lamps and TVs over, hugging and kissing people, and shouting at the top of your lungs!

Whenever God does something special in your life… He does it for a reason and purpose, namely because of the fact that He loves you… because you are His son or daughter. You are His special creation!

Don’t be mistaken. Even though there are many things that APPEAR to happen to us by accident, chance, our own intelligent, or our own talent… it is ALWAYS God that allows greatness to happen.

The old saying says: ‘When the PRAISES go up, the BLESSINGS will come down”… and is SO true… the more you praise Him, the more blessings tend to keep falling down upon you… because He hears your expressions of gratitude.

So this week, where ever you are at in the world, whether times are good or bad for you right now… open up your mouth and praise Him for the EXCELLENT things He has done for you! Because I guarantee that if you don’t, the rocks will cry out to Him… and I’m not about to have any rocks receive my blessings!

Until next time, be blessed in all that you do… and walk in God’s total abundance, today!

The RICHEST Place on Earth — and How You Can Find It!

“Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified…. He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee.” – The words of an angel, to a group of scared & confused Israelite women, almost 2000 years ago. (Matthew 28:5-7)

Many years ago, I attended a powerful, city-wide conference… that featured a magnificent speaker from the Bahamas, named Myles Munroe.

Here’s the question the speaker asked everybody that day:

Can you tell me what is the Wealthiest place on this earth?

There are probably like 10,000 answers you could give… and since I feel nice today (LOL), I’ll go ahead and tell you what some of the WRONG answers are.

The wealthiest place is NOT in the diamond fields of South Africa. It is NOT in the vast, oil fields of Kuwait. Nor is it in the royal wealth of the the banks of London… or in the stock markets of New York City.

The WEALTHIEST and RICHEST places on this earth lie in the graveyards and cemeteries all across this globe.

In these graveyards, lie the remains of people who NEVER attained their potential in life. They died without writing best-selling books that were in the fabric of their dreams.

They died without finding the cures to cancer, aids, and other diseases that for ages have plagued mankind.

In these graves are people who died without writing beautiful songs and ballads, that would’ve touched our hearts.

They died without starting multi-million dollar corporations that could have impacted the economy… and they died without starting organizations or ministries that would have changed the world.

In many cases, some of the things that these men and women could’ve have accomplished for mankind and this world is worth more than all the money, the gold, and the silver in this world… and sadly, a great WEALTH of ideas will never become manifest, because the owners of this GREAT wealth of knowledge will die before they can act upon it.

This is where YOU come in… and can play YOUR part in making sure that the richest place on earth, is NO longer our graveyards.

As many of you know, that this is Easter week… the week that those of us who are Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Resurrection simply means this: “Rising from the dead & Returning to Life”.

Many of us have dreams of becoming great men and woman… we have dreams of writing best-selling novels… starting successful businesses… running for political office…. the list is endless, but many of us NEVER accomplish that thing that we DREAM of doing.

Many times, it is because of fear and doubt… or ignorance… or a lack of resources on our part… the lies that people have told us… whatever the case is, sometimes the dreams and visions we have, are DEAD and buried within us… and we leave them in that grave within our hearts and minds… and when we die (which we all will), our dreams will die to… and NEVER have a chance to come alive.

This is a week that we celebrate LIFE, and it’s victory over death! Why not make it a week to also re-establish yourself… and where you’re at right now in life?

Now is the time for you to RESURRECT those dead dreams, passions, and ambitions of yours… and bring them back to life! It doesn’t matter what people say… or the lack of your resources… all that matters is God, and you can be assured He has all the resources and wisdom in the universe.

You were born in this time and in this age to make an impact and a difference in this world! You are NOT an accident or mistake… because what God creates, he instills purpose and potential in. This week and go after your dreams this week with a new fire and a new sense of urgency… and watch God use you!

Give Up Moments

Good Morning,

When you’re walking the walk of faith with God, you meet resistance. And at times you may feel like quitting. When this happens, don’t quit! On the other side of your give-up moment could be the miracle you’ve been waiting for.

When Peter loaned Jesus his boat to use to preach to the crowd that had gathered, Peter had reached a give-up moment. He had fished all night and not caught a single fish. After Jesus preached, He gave Peter a word. He said, Let down your nets for a draught (Luke 5:4).

Peter answered, “But, Master, we’ve toiled all night long and caught nothing!” That was his give-up moment. But then he said, Nevertheless, at thy word I will let down the net (v. 5). And he caught so many fish that it broke his net! On the other side of his give-up moment was the very miracle Peter needed!

We all face give-up moments, but that’s when you’re got to trust God to keep His Word. Once you find a promise you need in the Word, and God says He’s going to do it, you can trust the Word-even when you don’t see any results or understand-because it’s backed by God. You don’t have to figure God out. You just have to trust that He will keep His Word.

We often limit ourselves by forgetting that, as believers, we are spirit beings. That means we have a right to operate in spiritual principles. We can trust God’s spiritual laws because they work. When you understand this, you set yourself up for something supernatural to happen for you. So don’t give up! On the other side of your give-up moment could be your miracle!

My Declaration of Faith for Today:

I refuse to give up, because on the other side of my give-up moment could be my miracle!
Dr. I.V. Hilliard, Pastor

New Light Christian Center Church
