My Precious Partner...

A Monumental Miracle is on your horizon. Your Assignment Will Require It. Expect it to happen Today..! God never gives you an Assignment that does not require His participation. So, your Assignment will always be big enough to require a Miracle. When Joshua and the Israelites approached the massive walls of Jericho, it took a Miracle to bring the walls down. (See Joshua 6.) When Naaman dipped in the muddy Jordan River to receive his cleansing from leprosy, it took a Miracle for his healing to occur. (See 2 Kings 5:14.) When the widow of Zarephath was eating her last meal, it required a Miracle for it to multiply. The Harvest from her Seed of obedience fed herself, Elijah and her son for the duration of the famine. (See 1 Kings 17:14-16.) Any Assignment from God will require the Miracles of God. So, feed your faith. It will always enter your heart when you hear the Words of God. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God,” (Romans 10:17). Your Assignment may require Supernatural Financial Provision. Miracles come easily to the Obedient. Remember, Peter experienced the Miracle of catching a fish with a coin in its mouth to pay Jesus’ taxes. Financial Miracles are normal in the lives of those who obey God. Jesus loved performing Miracles. When He talked, each

word was an invitation to a Miracle. Peter discovered this when Jesus invited him to walk on water. The man with an infirmity for 38 years was healed instantly when Jesus invited him to a Miracle. God will never involve Himself in a Dream that you can achieve alone. He makes Miracles necessary so that you will be motivated to pursue Him and His involvement in your life. Every single act of God is designed to increase your dependency upon Him and addiction to His Presence. Your Assignment will always require the supernatural interventions of God. Remember: You want a Miracle. God wants a Relationship. Miracles are moving toward you...or away from you...every day of your life. You Are Never As Far From A Miracle As It First Appears. Your Faithful Intercessor,

The Power of Follow-Through... The voice came suddenly...rasping through the‘much needed to be replaced’ intercom. “Gimme yer order, please...go ahead, please...” The buzz of conversation led me to believe that my order was unexpected...an interruption...and last night’s events had priority...between the two fast food workers. I waited with exasperation until I became the focus again and stated my order slowly, yet not slow enough to give her time to forget my presence...again. “Pull up to the window, please”...screeched the voice as the sound of the intercom slammed to a halt. I would soon have my meal. I was running short on time. Lost minutes in traffic...lost minutes at the intercom...hoping to eat and be back at my desk ON TIME...with my food shoved a little past my tonsils. I was handed back my change. Thank God, I only ordered one burger. Accuracy of my order would be easy to confirm. One Coke—One Burger. I would soon be on my way..! The girl grabbed my order from the counter...opened the window and my lunch came toward me. I threw my car into gear...reached toward the bag...then as if in slow motion watched...as my lunch hit the pavement between the window of the drive-in and my car door. A sickening rage filled my head...So close...YET LOST. No real time left to eat..Sooo close. You may be thinking...Well, that was just an accident. Was it? She reached toward me...I reached toward her...She released the lunch right before she confirmed I had it. She failed to follow it through... One simple act missed. One very small act of Follow-Through caused a chain of successful events to fail. Yet, every single day...almost every hour of your life contains lost successes because of lack of Follow-Through...Regardless of what they teach...Almost is never good enough. Follow-Through and Follow-Up are in the same family, but are not the same function. Both are required. What is The Moral of this Short Story..? Follow-Up was in Full Throttle... 1) Requested order, 2) Preparation of order, 3) Payment of order, 4) Handing over the order, 5) Letting go...a moment too soon. A failed project... Most of your time is in Follow-Up...But your Success will only be in Follow-Through.

The phrase tears through me even now as I hear that in my spirit. Where, oh where is the REST that You promised me? Do You not see why I am so troubled..? Do You hear me God..? Do You really care..? If I let go of all that I need to do...just to worship...will You be there to pick up the pieces of my life? Am I the only one who feels this way? I dare not think that...For somehow the words of this book burned within me as I wrote. There are many of us. We have much to give... often giving until the only thing that surrounds us is a lonely silence...letting us know our Creator has been left in the distance. A Martha is willing to do any task...but is usually driven to her knees for worship. Our need to explain to God is very intense...but worship is the unrecognized Healing Balm we search for. Recognizing the desert of your soul will save you unneccessary heartache. It is as simple as that. This book, Martha's Diary, was written with you in my heart.

Uncommon Achievers Are Decisive. Few people are. Few people rarely take the time to find out what really excites, energizes and motivates them personally. They choose indecision. Scriptures command us to avoid indecisiveness. “But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways,” (James 1:6-8). Decisiveness Is Magnetic. It is the catalyst for the aura that surrounds extraordinary and unforgettable people. They simply know exactly what they want. Their success depends on it. They focus on what matters most. What is driving you...pushing you toward your Future? What is the invisible dream you are subconsciously trying to birth within you? What is causing your indecisiveness? What happens when you are totally undecided about an issue or decision? There is a reason for it. The reason may be lack of sufficient or accurate information. When this happens, simply declare with great decisiveness, “I have decided to wait ninety days until additional information arrives.” You have retained the climate of confidence and decisiveness. Determine to make clear and decisive decisions. Ruth was bold and decisive. She knew what she wanted and communicated that to Naomi. “And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God,” (Ruth 1:16). Your success and happiness in life depends on your willingness to make correct decisions. Successful Achievers are simply decisive when it comes to their

of Family Authority
DR. MIKE MURDOCK, Founder/Senior Pastor - The Wisdom Center

The Responsibilty

©

God Created The Family. It was His idea...the crowning achievement of all His creation. “So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over...every living thing that moveth upon the earth,” (Genesis 1:2728). The family is the very foundation of every society. The Family is the pattern for every institution of man—community, religion, education, government, business. Worship begins in The Family...where values are taught and passed on to the next generation. The Home is the place where Respect and Authority are first established. There is a popular statement, “As goes the home, so goes the nation.” But the truth is that, “As goes the home, so goes civilization!” God places great value on The Family, and consequently, He places great value on Leadership and Authority in the Home. In Genesis 3:16, He established the Chain of Command, “Unto the woman He said...thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.” But do not get too cocky, men..! The Apostle Paul explained that this rule was not to be just a position of Authority, but an attitude of great responsibility and love. “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it,” (Ephesians 5:25). “And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and
8

admonition of the Lord,” (Ephesians 6:4). Authority begins in the home. Authority creates order. Imagine a nation without a leader...a workplace without a boss...an army without a general. Order Is The Accurate Arrangement of Things. That is why you do not park your car in your bathroom! You do not eat your meals in the garage! There is a time and a place for everything. Respect those in Authority over you. The success of your marriage...your family is affected by it. Honor those who have lived before you. “Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord,” (Colossians 3:20). Your parents, teachers, mentors, possess a wealth of knowledge and Wisdom. Listen. Learn. Observe them. Show them respect. They have earned it. Honoring those in Authority is the Master Key to extraordinary success. Jesus understood this. He was the Son of God. He knew more than any other human on earth. Yet, He honored the authority of the Roman government. When people came to Him, questioning His opinion of paying taxes to Caesar, He answered, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s,” (Mark 12:17).

Your Home Is The Master Garden of Your Life.©

Refuse to allow strife in your home. Strife will not go away voluntarily. You must confront it. You will never correct what you are unwilling to confront. Always name disrespect for what it is. Pinpoint rebellion and strife. Promote honor and peace in your family. Jesus loved people. He cherished hours with His disciples. He was a listener. He was gracious and humble. He forgave. As a husband and father, you are to be the Protector and Provider of your home. You are to be the spiritual leader of your family. As a mother, you are under the authority of your husband and you are over your household. Children are to respect the authority of their parents. Even adult children are to respect and honor their parents. Your Home Is The Master Garden of Your Life. You are the Gardener. It is your responsibility to kill snakes…pull weeds…and plant the flowers that determine the odor and fragrance of your private world. Your Home is a serious responsibility…and eventual reward. Something you are doing Today…will decide what you experience Tomorrow. Remember this: Your Future Comfort Is Determined By Who You Are Willing To Train Today.

Pastor HOWARD HOLTON, Associate -The Wisdom Center

The last words of Jesus to His disciples were profound. He commanded them to teach. “Teach all nations...to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you,” (Matthew 28:19-20). Now, we think of The Great Commission as just dealing with preaching The Gospel, and that’s part of it, but teaching The Gospel plays just as important part as preaching. Why? Because preaching extends the church, but teaching edifies the church...it builds it up and brings it more into the image of Christ. In Ephesians 4:11-12, the ministry of teaching is mentioned after the ministry of apostles and prophets. “And He gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some...teachers.” This is because teaching is built on the works of the apostles and prophets which comes first. And in 1 Corinthians 12:28, Paul makes it clear that “...God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers.” The ministry of the apostle comes first because if you really want to come down to it, every missionary is an apostle. The word apostle means one that is sent. What we did in the Bayou country in Louisiana in the early stages of our ministry was really missionary work. There were so few churches in that part of the country where the truth was being preached. Apostles arrive first to establish the church. Prophets and teachers come after them to teach the church members to be like Christ. One of my favorite Scriptures is John 10:10. Jesus said, “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” How do we fulfill the abundant life? I am persuaded the method of fulfillment is by teaching...The Word of God. The understanding we need to enter into that fullness is in The Word of God, but we have to understand it first. Teachers serve that purpose. Turning to God is the inevitable result of following the teaching of The Word of God. Psalm 51:13 says, “Then will I teach transgressors Thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto Thee.” I remember especially one Sunday morning back in the 50’s, I was pastoring a church in the Bayou country of Louisiana, mostly Cajun and French people. There was a couple who came to the church because the husband had a job in our town. The wife came to Sunday School. I was teaching the adult class. The first time she was in that class, The Spirit of God moved and she began to weep. She stood up and said, “I want to go to the altar. I want to get right with God.” We prayed with her and she came back to the Lord. I was not preaching. I was teaching when that happened. When The Word is faithfully and consistently taught, the Power of God is released and people will turn to The Lord. Paul spoke of this Power of The Gospel in 1 Thessalonians 1:5, “For our Gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.”

There are 3 important principles every teacher should pay attention to in this verse. 1 The Teacher’s Example. What does the teacher do in his or her daily life? The great Methodist preacher, E.M. Bounds, compared a minister’s life to that of a water pipe or conduit. If the pipe is filthy and dirty, the water that comes out will be filthy and dirty, too. But if the pipe is clean, the water that comes out will be clean and pure also. As a teacher, your example—your life, attitude and actions will either contradict or enforce your teaching of The Word. Personally, I want time alone with the Word and with The Holy Spirit to prepare my heart so I can deliver The Word of God in power! A pure life will always produce a powerful example. 2 The Teacher’s Message. What does the teacher teach? The inerrant Word of 2. God. The teacher ought to have a Christ-centered message. He needs to teach about Jesus and exalt Him. It’s important to know The Bible, but you also need a knowledge of related subjects—geography, ancient history, the life and customs of Bible times. The Bible is an eastern book...it’s not a western book. Bible times were different than today. We need to understand that. So, what should a teacher do? Keep in training. Athletes have to keep training. Musicians have to keep practicing to stay sharp. One of the greatest piano players in the world said one time, “If I miss one day of practice nobody knows, if I miss two days of practice I know, if I miss three days of practice everybody knows.” We have the greatest message in the world. We have to stay spiritually alert. You must have daily fellowship with God—it will give you poise under pressure. Have a time for study and have a program of study. Don’t be haphazard. Nothing is more valuable than The Gospel of Jesus Christ. 3 3. The Teacher’s Method. How does he or she teach? First, the teacher’s success depends on the teacher’s enthusiasm. If you come across with a “Well, I guess I have to do this,” attitude, who are you going to help? There must be an enthusiasm in you about what you are doing. It will be in proportion to your faith. Have you thought about yourself just walking down the road and suddenly you meet Jesus there? Can you imagine what affect that would have on you? If another person’s life is just like Jesus’ living in this world, it’s got to have an effect on people. Teaching edifies the church...it builds it up and brings it more into the image of Christ. If you have a desire to teach, begin now to prepare yourself for the day you will be called upon to stand in that place. Teaching The Word is a great responsibility and a noble calling.

Excerpts From

The Wisdom Notes
DR. MIKE MURDOCK, Founder /Senior Pastor - The Wisdom Center

ever Stay Where There Is An Absence of Favor. God talks through Favor. Naomi taught this Law to Ruth. Mordecai emphasized this to Queen Esther, encouraging her to talk directly to the king about the impending disaster being planned by Haman. Follow The Path of Favor. The Path of Favor Is The Will of God. God has not arranged any Success outside His will. I consider Favor and Peace to be the two proofs of God’s direction. I went to buy a building one time. I made so many adaptations…so many concessions. The man was 90 something years old. He did not need any money. He did not care if he sold it or not. I was so worn out because I wanted the building so badly. Finally, before I went to sign the papers for the last time, I went to The Secret Place. I said, “Holy Spirit, I do not feel right about this. I want the building, but I do not feel right.” And He spoke and said, “There is no Favor. He has not made any concessions.” Adaptation is an investment, and this man would not adapt to anything I wanted or needed. And God helped me assess the absence of his Favor. Do not keep walking down a road where there is no Favor. God uses Favor as a seal…as a Verification process. Favor is a Confirmation. Where do you see Favor? Honor it! Treasure it! Protect it! Watch over it! Pray over it!

re You Qualified To Receive The Universe God Wants To Give Away? One night, a single man was flipping through a catalog. He saw a woman with a beautiful gorgeous fur coat and he thought to himself. “Lord, I wish I had a wife to buy that for.” Then he saw a beautiful green necklace. “I wish I had a wife to buy that for.” Suddenly The Holy Spirit spoke to him. “Now you know how I feel.” He said, “I have got a whole universe that I want to give to somebody. All I am looking for is someone to trust Me.” Knowing God…is the most important thing on earth. Understanding His nature…His heart…His desires for you is very important.

dvice From An Australian Billionaire. Stop Doing The Things In Which You Are Flagrantly Failing. Repetitious failure can sometimes be your signpost… telling you what you should stop doing. Throughout motivational teaching, we have often distorted a powerful truth. We have looked at failure as something to conquer, change and master. Get up and try again, is a popular concept. There are many, many exceptions to that rule. Failure is often a clue that you are attempting something you were not created to do. Tony Robbins, the famed motivation expert, says, “Continuously evaluate the results of your efforts.” He encourages people to make the changes necessary, instead of doing the same

thing again and again. As we had lunch together, the remarkable Australian billionaire, Peter J. Daniels, told me, “Stop doing the things in which you are flagrantly failing.” Yes, persistence is a powerful key…when you are in the center of a Divine Assignment God has given to you. Perseverance is always rewarded…when it is your tenacity to complete an instruction from a supervisor. But, when you obviously lack the skills, calling or grace…let it go. The Holy Spirit Is The Only Person You Are Required To Obey.

ifficulties Often Camouflage Diamond Experiences. Today is a very uncommon day. I just preached the funeral of a longtime friend. He and his wife came to Christ under my ministry. Let me tell you the story. It happened many years ago. I pulled my Airstream Travel Trailer (31 foot) from Houston, Texas to Los Angeles…hot, sweltering heat. It broke down. The car burned up in Barstow, California. After two or three days of waiting…securing parts…I finally got to Los Angeles, late on a Saturday afternoon. The pastor showed me where he wanted me to park the Airstream…a tiny space between a fence and the church. It was not a parking place at all. I saw the deep dip in the road in the driveway and knew I would scrape the bottom of my Airstream bad if I did. I had found a nice mobile home park that would let me park the Airstream for the two weeks that I was scheduled…for $3.50 a day. The pastor was upset and very angry at me for even thinking about having my own parking space…and refused to pay the $3.50 per day.

Disappointment Is A Conversation... If You Will Take The Time To Listen.

©

Obediently, as a young minister, I tried to back my Airstream where he wanted me to. It tore the bottom of the trailer off just like I knew it would. I boiled inside. But, I was determined to try to “create peace.” The details are many…I will just give you the essentials. The next morning, a couple came to my services in Los Angeles. They were holding a six-week old baby. Their marriage was coming apart. They were heavily involved in drugs and alcohol. That morning, God touched their heart through our ministry. They wept. They reached out for God. And, they experienced a dramatic turnaround in their marriage, their life. They partnered with me, ever since that day...43 years ago. The pastor was a disappointment to me. This couple was God’s great gift to me. That crusade was a very difficult one for me because I fought so many emotional volcanoes inside me due to the difficulty of the circumstances…but, God had a diamond camouflaged in that crisis. I would drive to California all over again today…just to meet this couple and have them in my life. When circumstances seem too painful for anything good…expect God to reveal His love supernaturally. He never, never fails to do so. You Are Never As Far From A Miracle As It First Appears.

14 Questions You Should Ask
DR. MIKE MURDOCK, Founder/Senior Pastor - The Wisdom Center

Your Work Is Important. Happiness depends on feeling good about yourself. It is based on your relationships and achievements. When your gifts and abilities are developed and utilized through your life’s work, you grow in confidence and strength. If you are unhappy at work, it will affect your family life, even your health. Take time to plan your career and life’s work. Your work is a gift from God. “…to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God,” (Ecclesiastes 5:19). “The Lord shall make thee plenteous in goods…and…bless all the work of thine hand,” (Deuteronomy 28:1112). God has given you your life’s work to bring you personal fulfillment. It is a vital key to your self-esteem and significance. If you are investing forty miserable hours each week on a job you do not like, two hours of church on Sunday will not necessarily cure it. 1 Are You Really Happy With What You Are Presently Doing? Your personal excitement and enthusiasm about your productivity each day is important. Nobody can answer this but You. 2 Is Your Present Job Actually A Short-Range or Long-Range Goal? For instance, high school or college students may not intend to work their entire lifetime at fast food restaurants. So their “after school” job is a short-range goal. They are gaining education, experience and basic financial provision. Likewise, you should clarify in your own Mind the real reasons why you have chosen to work where you are presently working or where you desire to work. 3 Are Your God-Given Gifts And Strongest Talents Being Developed? Prosperity and promotion usually come to those who totally focus on their most significant skills. 4 Are You Working Just To Pay Your Bills And Have Fun or To Truly Express A Contribution To Life And To This Work? Prominent achievers go the extra mile.

Do You Feel That God Is Satisfied With What You Are Doing Now? I remember one tremendous guitarist who left a nightclub band after honestly answering this question. Though he loved his music, he felt God did not want him sowing his talents in such an environment. 6 Do You Feel That You Are Doing The Highest Quality of Work That You Are Capable of Doing? Millions cultivate the habit of mediocrity in their daily duties. If you are not striving for total excellence, you have either the wrong job or the wrong attitude. 7 Do You Feel Like You Are Working “As Unto The Lord?” You must see the work you do for your boss as work you are doing for God. If not, you will soon resent your boss and the time you spend on his work. This attitude will eventually cause you to feel unfulfilled and unproductive. Seriously consider the above questions. Then, ask The Lord for His instructions regarding your career. 8 How Much Income Do You Personally Feel That You Need To Consider Yourself Financially Successful? Each of us have different needs. Some have 5X7 dreams. Others have 16X20 dreams. Neither is right or wrong. The key is to establish a true picture of your personal desires. 9 What Kind of Problems Do You Really Love To Solve? You can determine this by your favorite topic of conversation, favorite books and magazines that you enjoy. What would you enjoy talking about the most? Those things reveal your true interests. 10 What Kind of Environment Do You Find Most Enjoyable? Some people discover that they need many people around them to be most productive. Others prefer solitude. 11 What Are Your Social Needs? If your job deprives you of important

relationships, it will become a source of discomfort and depression. You must diagnose the personal leisure and social needs that your happiness requires. 12 What Kind of Family Life or Time Do You Feel Is Necessary? Obviously, a bachelor schedules his life differently from a family man with five children or a divorced mother of an infant. The job that is right for you should provide adequate time for sharing with those you love. 13 What Level of Social Approval And Respect Do You Need? Each of us wants to be accepted by our friends. Never work for a company of which you are ashamed. One man admitted to me that he had no confidence in the products he was promoting. Consequently, he experienced very little success. He left that job and went to work with a company he could honestly support. It made all the difference in his happiness. 14 What Kind of Financial Future Is Necessary For Your Peace of Mind? While very few jobs offer a lifetime guarantee, every one of us needs a sense of predictable income. Tomorrow does come. You must find where God wants you to be and what He wants you to be doing, and move as quickly as possible in that direction. Paul wrote, “With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men,” (Ephesians 6:7). The Questions You Ask Determine The Answers You Discover.

Ministry Is The Healing of Human Hurt, Through Compassion And The Wisdom of God. The entire Body of Christ is stirred and anointed to help heal the wounded through prayer, love and counsel. The Bible clearly identifies five specific callings: pastoral, evangelistic, teaching and others. Inner persuasion concerning your calling births Power and Strength and is a magnet for Uncommon Success. Those Who Are Called Into The Ministry Feel Deep Grief And Pain Over The Spiritual Condition of Others. You are not called if you can be around sinners and never feel their pain. You are not called if you can be around people who are anti-christ and not feel the boldness erupt inside you. A preacher, a man of God, a Deliverer is not a “take it or leave it” kind of guy. Whatever unlocks your compassion identifies if you are called or not. What causes you pain? 2 Those Who Are Called Into The Ministry Often Become Angered Over The Rebellion To God. When you are a man of God, you become very, very upset...even angered over the rebellion to God there is in the nation. You must speak out. The Problem That Infuriates You The Most Is The Problem God Has Assigned You To Solve. 3 Those Who Are Called Into The Ministry Are Willing To Do The Illogical And The Unusual. Even when it activates an adversary. There is a calling. You do things that no human would normally do when you are called of God. Things that seem illogical...like flying all over the world rushing from service to service and telethons with very little sleep. There is a calling. That is how you know. 4 Those Who Are Called Into The Ministry Contain An Unusual

MINISTRY

Obsession To Know The Heart of God. You really want to know God. Pray to know God. Sit in His Presence to know Him, because whatever you are, you will reproduce. Study The Bible to know truth...not to receive a sermon. You will only learn through saturation. Do not go into His Presence just to get enough. Three keys on The Holy Spirit...learn from Him, love Him, lean on Him. There is no place for you in the Ministry if God’s Presence does not inspire you. 5 Those Who Are Called Into The Ministry Are Willing To Invest Time In Mentorship Instead of Achievement. Those who are called into the Ministry are willing to invest time to learn...time in Mentorship. You want to be mentored. You want to listen and read books...constantly. You want to sit in the atmosphere where The Holy Spirit can ignite Seeds of Wisdom that are planted in your spirit. 6 Those Who Are Called Into The Ministry Have The Heart of A Servant. What is a servant? He does what is necessary. Serving is saying, “What do you need that I can produce?” 7 Those Who Are Called Into The Ministry Are Unhappy And Dissatisfied With Anything Else. When you are truly called to preach or teach The Gospel, you hate being anywhere else but in the center of where God wants you.

Brenda Holsinger, Ministry Volunteer-Children’s World at The Wisdom Center

When we are in our Assignment or workplace, challenges, difficulties, or transitions can occur that test our faith, love walk, and submission to authority. During these times we need to guard our heart and be relentless in dealing with negative thoughts and attitudes. When trials occur, we have a choice on how to respond. We can respond according to God’s Word, or according to our flesh. When we respond in our flesh, by murmuring, arguing, complaining, and gossiping, we may be walking in doubt, fear, and unbelief. When we gossip or speak “our opinions” (especially regarding our authorities) we may be sowing discord and strife. Sometimes gossiping can even be a form of manipulation - where someone may be trying to achieve their own agenda, instead of submitting to an unpleasant instruction. Let’s remember what happened to the children of Israel, after they left Egypt. They wandered in the wilderness for 40 years – many died in the wilderness. Their journey should have been short, but due to their unbelief and rebellion against their God given authority – Moses, God could not allow them into the Promised Land. They were not prepared. If we trust and obey God during trials, He will use them to prepare us for our future. Otherwise, we may have to “go around the mountain again” until we do learn to obey and allow God’s character to be developed inside of us. Thank God, if we have responded in our flesh, we can repent and God will forgive us (1 John 1:9). Also remember, God will not allow us to be tempted above what we can handle, but with each temptation will make a way to escape that we can bear it (I Corinthians 10:13). How does God want us to respond during trying situations? Let’s read and meditate on the following Scriptures. Ask God to help us apply these to our daily lives. • “Servants (employees) obey your masters (employers)… ” (Colossians 3:22-25). • “Do all things without murmurings and disputings,” (Philippians 2:14). • “Be careful (anxious or fearful) for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication…” (Philippians 4:6-7). This is where we deal with any attitudes or offenses that come our way. Usually it is best to keep quiet about matters that concern us, unless we are privately talking to God and giving the situation into His care. After we give the matter to God in prayer, He will give us peace. • “Be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you,” (Ephesians 4:32). We must 30

choose to forgive those who offend us, no matter what the situation. We can do this privately in prayer. Forgiveness is a choice we make with our will and is not based on our emotions. When we pray about the offense or offender, we must leave the matter in God’s capable hands, trusting Him to work His will in the situation. This enables us to maintain a pure heart, and continue to walk in love and unity with others. • “… Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, …think on these things,” (Philippians 4:8). After we have given a matter to the Lord in prayer, we cannot afford to allow our thoughts to run loose and wild...this is contrary to God’s Word and is unhealthy for our mental and emotional well-being. Remember God’s Word says, “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth in Thee,” (Isaiah 26:3). • “In every thing give thanks...” (1 Thessalonians 5:18). “We can praise God in faith, knowing that He is working all things together for good to those who love God and to those who are called according to His purpose,” (Romans 8:28). When we trust and obey God in the midst of trials, we will experience God on a deeper level in our relationship with Him. Our faith will grow as we see God answer our private prayers! We’ll begin to love and appreciate others as we see them through spiritual eyes. It will become easier to follow our leaders - as they follow Christ. When we pray about challenges, instead of taking matters into our own hands, God has a wonderful way of working in the situation - especially in our own heart. If we respond to difficulties according to God’s Word, our position, or Assignment will be secure in the Lord. We will have the freedom to put our full focus, passion, and development into our work, so that we can do our best for our Lord, our team, and for ourselves, without strife, competition or fear. This type of work atmosphere is productive, loving and stable. It is an environment that honors God and it is one that is blessed by God.

MONICA MELGAR, Spanish Pastor-The Wisdom Center

Breakthrough by the Holy Spirit will always be a major advancement in life. It will come in whatever you need at that moment. It may be in your mind or in your finances. It may be in a relationship, but God will make the changes we need...if we let Him. You Cannot Receive Your Breakthrough Without Expectation. Expectation produces hope, excitement, anticipation. The Holy Spirit is available to us 24 hours a day, but He needs an invitation, a willing and obedient vessel, an open heart, with faith and expectation to receive. We can have great expectations, but we also need to take responsibility for them. If you receive an invitation to attend a Wisdom Conference or any of our events, you can expect to receive and enjoy hours and hours of powerful teaching, revelation and worship, but if you don’t desire and you don’t act on your faith and expectation, there will be no Spiritual Breakthrough in your life...regardless of where you are! Are You Expecting To Receive The Greatest Spiritual Breakthrough of Your Life?

What Is A Breakthrough?
A Breakthrough in The Spirit is a major advancement in your life. It may be an advancement in your career...in your home...with your spouse, son, daughter or loved one who is away from the Lord. It may be a Breakthrough in your mind or emotions, something in your temperament or personality. A need for a breakthrough is some personal struggle that maybe no one else knows about, but you and God. Maybe the Breakthrough you are asking for is for more of God’s anointing, Divine Wisdom or for greater revelation of Who He is. More of the revelation of God. Maybe you just want more of God in your life...you just want to be overtaken and led by the Lord. Whatever it is, we are in that time...in that season of Breakthrough. One of the things that has impressed my heart and blessed me so much is the story of the woman who was instantly healed when she touched the hem of Jesus’ garment. “And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched His garment. For she said, If I may touch but His clothes, I shall be whole. And straightway the fountain of

her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague,” (Mark 5:25-29). She believed she would be healed. She moved toward Jesus. She anticipated a miracle and it happened! It was the greatest spiritual breakthrough of her life. I Believe We Are In The Season For Miracles. Miracles are available to you right now. You don’t have to wait for someone to pray for you. You don’t have to wait for a special church service. Your miracle Breakthrough can begin right now where you are. Miracles are for the obedient. Miracles are for the ones who pursue them. You have to reach for it. Grab it. Become a Receiver. Are you a Reacher...are you a Receiver? The woman with the issue of blood did not wait for Jesus to come to her. She went to Him. She received a Miracle Breakthrough. When you pray according to the Scriptures, you can expect miracles to happen. “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father Which is in Heaven give good things to them that ask Him?” (Matthew 7:7-11). Your time for Spiritual Breakthrough is now! A Breakthrough in your relationships. A Breakthrough in your decisions. A Breakthrough in your finances. A Breakthrough in your emotions. The Holy Spirit has anointed you. (Isaiah 61.) You can receive provision and deliverance. He wants to release miracles into your life. Worship your Heavenly Father. Thank Him for your miracle right now. Your Spiritual Breakthrough is waiting.

LADY KATHY DAVIS, Worship Leader - The Wisdom Center

The world in which we live is full of fragile loves - love that abandons, love that fades, love that is self-seeking. However, the world of the unstoppable worshipper is different. How is it different? The unstoppable worshipper has a heart so amazed by God and His wonders with a love that burns within that will not be extinguished! This love survives any situation and lives through any circumstance it has to confront. The unstoppable worshipper gathers beneath..."the shadow of the Almighty and lives in the secret place of the Most High" Psalm 91:1. In Acts chapter 16... Paul and Silas were great examples of unstoppable worshippers. They resolved to overcome less than favorable conditions and decided to give God what He deserves - honor through worship. Can you imagine that while sitting in jail, they could have been bitter and resentful for being unjustly arrested, beaten severely and thrown into the deepest part of the prison...yet they were unstoppable in their worship of God's Almightiness? I believe it was through their lifestyle of worship that allowed them to find strength to press and make the choices to sing praises to our God. We have all faced circumstances that have tried to extinguish the flame of our worship. In spite of discomforts, we must fan the flame of worship to God with a decisive commitment and declare as in Habakkuk 3:17-19 ..."I will yet praise Him and joy in the God of my salvation,” (v. 18). We must position ourselves constantly to offset the intruders of our passionate pursuit for pleasing God through unimpeded worship. How is this fulfilled? The Psalmist cries out in Psalm 34:1-2..."I will bless the Lord at all times and His praise shall continually be in my mouth...magnify the Lord with me and let us exalt His name together..." This kind of worshipper always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres (See 1 Corinthians 13:7).

What are the keys to being an unstoppable worshipper?
Always live into the reality of what you are experiencing. (Philippians 4:6-7.) Admit when there are things wrong in your life and quickly repent. (Hebrews 12:1-2.) 3 Recognize that there is definitely a place for brokenness and weeping in our walk of worship; but there is a right way to express it. (Psalm 22:1-3.) 4 Pour out your heart cry without criticism of who God is. (Hebrews 11:6.)

Even at your lowest ebb, there should be an underlying trust to pursue Him. Psalm 13 says..."I will trust in your unfailing love." 6 Let nothing hinder you in your quest to glorify God no matter what the cost. (Hebrews 13:15.) 7 Lastly, whatever "Goliath" comes your way, walk onto the battlefield in worship to take charge and take control. (Revelation 1:6; 4:11; 5:12.) Remember an "unstoppable worshipper" does not shrink back in the face of opposition, challenge, confrontation, or intimidating tactics and demonic schemes. Instead, we raise a spirited psalm of trust and praise as David did in Psalm 3..."Lord, how they have increased who trouble me! Many are they who rise up against me. Many are they who say of me, there is no help for him in God." A worshipper concludes with the commitment of Verse 3..."But You, Oh Lord, are a Shield for me...My glory and the One Who lifts my head." The unstoppable worshipper refuses to allow circumstances, people, disappointments, pain, difficulties, betrayals, unfortunate events of any sort to dictate their position of authority in worship. The "unstoppable worshipper" chooses to proclaim Psalm 3, Verse 6..."I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people who have set themselves against me all around." Why? Because He is our Shield. God is seeking worshippers who will be ready to follow the adventurous whispers of His Holy Spirit. These true unstoppable worshippers keep alive the romance of their First Love with hearts that are always ready for the unpredictable. The Unstoppable Worshipper!

The Law of
DR. MIKE MURDOCK, Founder/Senior Pastor - The Wisdom Center

Sameness creates comfort, Difference creates your reward. What do you love passionately? What environment unlocks your joy? What would you rather talk about than anything else on the earth? If I say the name Bill Gates, you are going to think computers. If I say Mohammed Ali, you are going to think boxing. If I say Tiger Woods, you are going to think golf. If I say Billy Graham, you are going to think evangelism. If I say Benny Hinn, you are going to think healing. What is the one word that would separate you from every other person? When I arrive in different places where I speak I will ask the host pastor, “What is the one word that describes your ministry?” Usually they will say, “That is a good question, I do not know, I would have to think about that.” I say, “Is it Restoration? Miracles? Love? Faith? Family? What do you consider the dominant theme of your life? That ought to be on your church sign…in your newsletter…on the name of your TV program. Everything about your ministry should have a focus. What is your Difference from another? Neiman Marcus is very different than Wal-Mart. They have identified their Difference. The Law of Difference is simply this…you will be known for your Difference. Have you identified your Difference from others? What do you love that others do not have the passion for? I identified my Difference over 25 years ago when I realized I had a love for Wisdom. I did not just want to be motivated…for someone to build my hope. I needed a plan…a system. I did not want to hear everything will be alright. I wanted to know how to make things alright. Tell me at least three things I can do within 24 hours to initiate change. I fell in love with the Word of God as the Wisdom of God. (See Deuteronomy 4:6.) I decided to build my day around Wisdom. I felt learning was the secret to change. I realized many who had successful lives did not experience a lot of Miracles. They simply worked The Laws of God. When you apply the right Law, you receive the right Harvest. 36

Self-Confidence Is Faith In Your Difference. What is your Difference? What do you not want to quit doing everyday? What do you love to keep doing? What energizes you? What excites you? What enthuses you? If money was not an issue what would you chose to do with your life? Work with The Law of Difference. What do you hate? Moses saw an Egyptian beating up an Israelite and anger rose up in him. Why? He was a Deliverer. What makes you angry? Battered wives? The abuse and molestation of little children? Do you weep when you see a drug addict? Are you crushed when you hear of a divorce? What do you love to think about all day long? What do you love to read about? What do you love to learn about? If you could talk about any one thing on earth, your last five minutes on the earth, what would you want to talk about? That is a clue to your Difference. Nothing Is More Tormenting Than Living Life Unrewarded For Your Difference. You must discover your Difference before you can market your Difference. I know what to expect when I go to Neiman Marcus. I know because they have emphasized their point of Difference. You cannot change your life until you change what you know about yourself. You must discover your Difference to know your worth. You must know your Difference from others. You did not marry your husband because he reminded you of your first boyfriend. He was not like your first boyfriend. Remember the Wisdom Key: Your Significance Is Not In Your Similarity To Another, But In Your Point of Difference From Another.

Renaming Your Moments And Changing Your World (WCPL-97)
God Packages Everything In... Moments. Moments are Divine gifts... that must be unwrapped, discerned and named. Your decision to rename your moments of crisis... as moments of promotion is very important. You have never heard a message like this in your life. And, it will change your world forever!

7 Powers of Your Mind (WCPL-133)

This study will help increase your respect for the mind.

What To Do...While You Are Waiting (WCPL-140)
What Are You Waiting For... In Your Life? Are You Waiting For A Miracle? A Harvest? An Apology? Waiting is sometimes a demonic trap that delays your pursuit of change. Sometimes, it is a Divine Seed that proves your trust in God. This incredible study enables you to know the difference and make your waiting work for you..!
