Got Questions about the Bible? Get Them Answered Every Thursday

Got Questions about the Bible? Get them Answered Every Thursday!

Got Questions about the Bible? Get them Answered Every Thursday!

Starting next week… every Thursday will be known as “Tough Question Thursdays” and every Friday will be known as “Financial Fridays“.

On Tough Question Thursdays, we will answer at least 5 questions that those of you following this blog have about the Bible, God, spirituality, or anything else!

On Financial Fridays (starting tomorrow)… we will talk about (duhh…) finances, wealth building, money, etc. from a Godly perspective.

This was an idea given to me by my friend Greta Farina out of Vancouver, a few weeks ago.

I invite you (starting right now!) to think of questions that you have always had… and no matter how foolish or simple your question(s) may seem to you… ask them on this blog.

IMPORTANT: Remember… no question is too foolish. We will even answer some of the most taboo questions about what the Bible says about different life issues.

Some of the questions that will be answered on Thursdays will probably be SO intense… it would make a prostitute blush! Some difficult questions that many people have are pretty broad… ranging from questions about suicide, pre-marital sex, masterbation, the Trinity, speaking in tongues, salvation, war… the list is quite endless!!!

I feel that it is VERY important that we who are Christians (and those of you who aren’t Christians, but want to learn more about it)… have an avenue of asking these questions and getting them answered.

What I will do each week on Thursday’s blog… is to prayerfully research and find the answers to all the questions asked. If I cannot find a DEFINITE biblical answer to your question… I will let you know!

(1) You can ask your questions (starting right… about… NOW) by sending them to my e-mail address: Daniel [at] TodayAbundance [dot] com replace the [at] with @, and the [dot] with a .

-or-

(2) You can also write your questions as comments on this blog post. If you want me to keep your name private (when I write the answers every Thursday)… let me know!

The vision behind TodayAbundance.com is to, “Build a community of 100,000+ strong, positive individuals worldwide… who seek daily motivation & inspiration for life”

Studies show that most individuals who have more success… more happiness… more joy… and more wealth in life…. are those who ON PURPOSE devote time out of their busy days to engage in PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT.

This can be 10 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, or whatever amount of time that you dedicate yourself to developing the the most valuable asset you own — which is YOU.

It is our goal to motivate you… inspire you… challenge you… and give you an avenue of personal development in your life in areas such as relationships, business, jobs, and health… all in a Godly and Biblical way.

Blessings to you and your whole household,

Daniel

Without Vision, You are Blind.

Helen Keller was once asked, “What is worse than being blind?”. Her response: “Being able to see… but having NO vision.”

Let the vision for your life, family, future, education, health, and ministry be clear to you. The vision that you establish for yourself, helps to guide you THAT place in life that you want to get to… but is just out of your reach.

Your vision for your life, is a roadmap… that will help you find the way to your destination in life, whenever you get lost.

Your vision for your life will help pull you to the top… when haters, naysayers, and hypocrites try to drag you with them to the bottom.

Your vision for your life helps to illuminate your surroundings… when you feel like everything is dark around you.

Basically, without a vision for your life… you’re JUST like a blind person. Only, you just run into more walls than they do!

Goal Setting – The SEXY Way

Okay, so I wrote this headline to capture your attention. Did I do a good job? Anyways… when we think of goals and writing goals down… let’s be real, it sounds B-O-R-I-N-G.

Sure… goals do NOT have an hourglass shape… or have a 36-24-36 measurement… or look good in a little red dress, but if we could see how good goals can look like in our lives when we implement them… they would look very sexy!

I bet you never thought you would hear a preacher use the word ‘Sexy’, did you???

But if we could see how POWERFUL the effects and results of goal setting can be in just about every aspect of our life, goals would be one of the MOST attractive things we can lay our eyes on.

Let’s look at some wisdom from the Bible:

“Write the vision down, and make it plain on tables [a tablet, notepad], that he that reads it may RUN with it” — Habakkuk 2:2

In yesterday’s blog post, we talked about having a vision in your life for yourself (click here to read that post). In order for us to achieve our vision that we have for our lives… it is essential that we write it down on paper.

A goal simply put is this:

You writing down on paper where you want to be, what you want to have, or what you want to do… at a certain specified time.

You can also look at a goal just like you look at a MapQuest map when you’re traveling. Your goal is the destination where you want to ‘end up at’.

Too many times in life, we let life & circumstances dictate where we should go… instead of us dictating to life & circumstances where we WANT to go. Goals are the engine that superpower us into ACHIEVING just about EVERY desire we have in our life.

So you don’t believe that goals will work for you if you work it? A Harvard study that was done many years ago followed a class of graduate students over a span of 20+ years. Only 3% of those students WROTE down their goals.

At the end of the 20-year study, the 3% of the graduating class that wrote their goals down… had accomplished MORE than the remaining 97% of the class who DID NOT write their goals down!

The 3% with the goals were wealthier, happier, had more satisfaction with life, were healthier, and more vibrant.

All because they set and wrote down some boring ole goals for themselves.

The Bible agrees with this. Even back in 600 B.C. when the prophet Habakkuk wrote penned those words of wisdom through inspiration… it holds SO true today.

If we write our vision down on paper (goals)… when we read it, it allows us to run in life, instead of crawl.

Goals seem to be as sure as the law of gravity, as sure as the sun coming up in the morning, and as sure of it going down in the evening. Goals work for people who use them. Whether it is science or some type of weird, supernatural phenomenom — goals have a tendancy of exciting, invigorating, and pushing you to your fullest potential.

You need goals for your career or business. You need goals for your physical health and well-being. You need goals for your family. You need goals for your spiritual life. Just about every aspect of life you have… YOU NEED GOALS!

I will talk more about goals tomorrow… and get more specific on how to set proper goals which will excite you and drive you to get to places that you never dreamed that you could ever get too! Until then, think and dream about where you want to be at life in the next 5 years. Where do want to be at in life next year? Where do want to be at in life in the next 6 months?

What have you always wanted to do… or to be… or to have in life? Have you wanted to write a book, or perhaps start a new business, or maybe go to the moon (hey — space traveling is definitely NOT my thing, so I won’t hate on you if it’s yours!). What did you always dream about doing in life, ever since you were a kid?

Think about it and until tomorrow, be extremely blessed… and remember God’s abundance in your life starts today, so grab it and run with it now… because tomorrow is too late!

Do You Have 20/20 Vision?

Where there is NO vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” – Proverbs 29:18

____

When you hear or read the word “Vision“, how do you define that 6-letter word? Do you view it as just what your eyes see… or do you view vision as how far you can see… or perhaps, how well you can see (or can’t see) at night while you’re driving?)

Vision is defined in the dictionary as (1) The ability to see something… and (2) to have a vivid, mental image of something that has yet to pass.

I want you to concentrate hard on that second definition

To have a vivid, mental image of something that has yet to pass.

No, and I don’t mean you eat some spoiled, month-old bologna last night… and you had some crazy, translucent, vivid, mental images of blue Smurfs running around your bed (that sounds a bit scary, huh?)

I’m talking about YOU having the the type of vision… where you can vividly SEE yourself at a much further state than you are at presently, 6 months, 1 year, or 5 years down the line.

I’m talking about YOU having the type of vision, where you can SEE yourself as a millionaire… even if you don’t have nothing but a dime, an old Snickers wrapper, and a few balls of lint in your pocket.

I’m talking about YOU having the type of vision, where you can SEE yourself running your own business or going back to school and getting that degree that you always wanted… even if you have 6 kids, and 1 on the way, and are struggling to make ends meet!

I’m talking about YOU having the type of vision, where you can SEE your whole family coming back together like a real family… even though none of them gets along, haven’t talked to each other for years, are estranged,  and when they do meet up, want to rip each others throats out!

The type of vision God wants you to have. He wants your vision not to depend on what your natural eyes sees… but He wants your Vision to depend on what your eyes of faith sees. So just because your life may look like a hot mess right now in your natural eyes, doesn’t mean that’s where it has to stay at!

Allow God to fit you with a prescription pair of glasses that will totally change the way that you have been looking at the world.. and yourself. I promise you, the type of corrective lenses He will give you will give you such awesome 20/20 vision… you will see the light once again!

If you can see it, you can achieve it… and if you can achieve it… you can be it.

Make up in your mind RIGHT NOW… that no matter what you (or anybody else) thinks about you, that you are going to start seeing yourself as a successful person. You’re going to start seeing yourself at a much higher station in life than you currently see yourslef at.

Because this is VERY sad, but VERY true, when we don’t have a positive VISION for our life… we begin to slowly perish (die) on the inside. That fire, desire, and excitement that you had as a kid… will slowly start to fade… and you will actually start to die slowly on the inside.

Tomorrow, we will talk more about Vision… and how you can attain your vision through goals… so tell all your friends about the blog and tune in tomorrow.

Until then, see yourself as God sees you (a winner, an overcomer, his child, blessed beyond measure, a success), have an AWESOME day… and walk in God’s Abundance today, because tomorrow is too late!
