The Secret to Making Everything Better

It’s been said that “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you always got.” Another way to say this is a definition of insanity: “Thinking you will get different results by doing the same thing.” Look, last year was good but I wanted this year to be better so I decided to make some strategic changes, to do things differently. Most notably, I decided to act on something I’ve known for years: “The most important thing is to make the most important thing the most important thing.”

The most important thing for me is God. Many of us would say that, but how do we tangibilitate it? How do we make Him most important in our every day lives?

I know I need to get closer to Him. Someone asked, “If you’re far from God, who moved?” Obviously not Him. To get close to anyone we must spend time together, so I vowed to spend an hour each morning in prayer, Bible study, good books to help me grow spiritually and meditating on scriptures. It’s already bearing wonderful fruit. Not only do I feel more peaceful and connected, but great things are coming from the overflow, things that can only be attributed to Him.

Just last week, two speaking engagements were offered me out of the blue. So many people signed up for our Cleveland retreat we had to reserve more space. In addition, three pastors we’ve been calling for months made appointments to discuss our seminars. Then Sunday I met a well connected Christian film producer who asked to see two of my film projects. I can’t wait to see what happens this week!

So what’s the secret that’s making my life better? I started by deciding I wanted to make three major changes: to have my heart’s desires, to be more spiritual and less carnal, and to achieve greater prosperity. All three are selfish, but they’re what I call ‘sanctified selfishness’: they are things God wants for us. He says, “If we delight in Him He will grant us the desires of our heart” (Psalm 37:4). If He didn’t want us to have our heart’s desires why would He tell us how to get them?

And what’s better than deeper spirituality? For me that means experiencing more of His loving Presence, which gives us “fullness of joy and pleasures evermore” (Psalm 16:11). In order to experience more of Him and less of my flesh, I reflect on a verse from Galatians 5: “If we walk after the Spirit we won’t fulfill the lusts of the flesh.” (It doesn’t say we won’t have them, we won’t fulfill them!)

To attain to greater prosperity I meditate on this little known passage: “Blessed be the name of the Lord who delights in the prosperity of His servants” (Psalm 35:27). I am His servant, hence I don’t need to plead for prosperity, I merely must acknowledge and believe that He is excited for me to have it. After all, if I am thrilled when my kids prosper, how much more so is He when we do well?

I know that whatever I “believe without doubt has been done” (Mark 11:24). Therefore, to under gird my capacity to believe the Lord for my heart’s desires, for more of Him and greater prosperity I try to meditate daily on the scriptures that promise these things.

Frankly, I don’t like secular affirmations. They seem too contrived, as if I’m making the Lord my celestial butler. But I fully believe in the truth and power of God’s Word, so to get these promises deep into my own heart and soul, I designed biblical affirmations concerning the changes I want to make. For instance, during my meditations I may say out loud, “Thank you God that you delight in my prosperity because I am Your servant.” Then I just enjoy His loving Presence as it floods my heart. As I do this with everything I want to change in my life, they start to change. I can feel it every day.

Finally, I find good books based on scripture that help me progress in these areas. I dug out an old book I read years ago but never really acted on. It’s called The Power of Your Subconscious Mind, by Dr. Joseph Murphy. It’s helping me understand how to “put on the mind of Christ.” Someone recommended the book Prosperity, by Charles Filmore. I made a note to buy it then discovered I already had it! It literally fell off my shelf while I was cleaning. Filmore (what an appropriate name) shows you how to tap into God’s abundance by meditating on scriptural truths.

For some people, devotional time is a “have to” that they dread. For me it’s become a big “get to” that I love. When I postpone it or don’t do it I feel empty and detached, like something wonderful is missing.

These simple disciplines of prayer, meditation, scripture, and biblical affirmations will make everything better this year. I commend them to you as well. Think of the things you want to change, set aside time to seek God daily about them and see what He does. I think you’ll be -- dare I say -- delighted with the results.
