My dear friends… We just received this unsolicited email from Wichita, KS. With the economic climate being what it is, I am taking the unprecedented step of giving up my commentary to share a very powerful and inspiring testimony. Take a minute now to read this carefully. It just might save the day for you! Here it is…
“Good Morning Michael, Tim here in Kansas! I thought I would share with you what I have been doing for the last 30+ days and how blessed I am to have done so! I decided to carry with me everyday, “The Bible Incorporated” so that I could redeem 3 minutes here and 5 minutes there throughout the day with quick, concise Bible scripture thoughts. Early in January as I was reading chapter 9, “The Key of Strength”, I was so overcome by the joyful and comforting presence of God that I could hardly get myself pulled back together to get the rest of my sales appointments completed for the day.”
“To think and to continually meditate on the fact that, “The Lord is my strength! Who/What is there to be afraid of?” I am just as susceptible to the rampant fear of financial insecurity that is plaguing our country right now as anyone else. Even if I get myself into a right mind and right attitude, I still have to deal with my prospects and customers and their fears and their attitudes, (what a ministry that is becoming!) While I was giving thanks to the Lord for just this one chapter and what it meant to me to know HIM as my STRENGTH and my REDEEMER… the inspired, (I believe), thought came to me… Chapter 9 for 2009!!!”
“So, “Chapter 9, The Bible Incorporated” is the first thing I read every morning! It is the first declaration that I make in my daily prayer closet…” Lord, YOU are my STRENGTH! YOU are my SAVING STRENGTH! I seek you out this morning to be my SAVING STRENGTH! Make my way perfect with YOUR POWER and STRENGTH! I am going from STRENGTH to STRENGTH this year! I have no confidence in my flesh or the flesh of this world. I am of the circumcision that worships God in the Spirit! I am made perfect in weakness. YOUR grace is sufficient for me! I am strong and courageous! I fear not for YOU are with me! YOUR Rod and Staff lead me, guide me, and protect me! YOU will not forsake me! YOU will strengthen me! YOU will help me! Yes, YOU will uphold me with YOUR right hand! YOU increase me! My clean hands receive POWER to get wealth today to establish YOUR covenant forever!”
“Man!!! You can’t help but have a good day when you start it like that!!! By the way, I set an all time production and margin record for my BANK in January! Yes, I said my employer is a BANK! While most other banks are truly suffering right now… My God is blessing me with RECORD sales and RECORD profit for my BANK! And February has started just as strong as January did! To GOD be all the GLORY!!! “Chapter 9 in 2009”! Maybe the rest of your subscribers will be as blessed as I am by making this same commitment! I have already dog-eared my leather bound copy of “The Bible Incorporated, In Your Life, Job, and Business”. It’s over 10 years old now and I’ve read from nearly every week and now daily! Do you still have the leather bounds? Maybe you can make us all a deal? I’ll buy another one!”
I am greatly enjoying being reconnected to your information. I listened to the cd version of “Secrets of the Rain Forest” years ago and am glad to be reconnected to the practical wisdom God gives you. I am looking forward to ongoing teachings and will be sharing your website with several people today. Thanks for reaching out and for being back in the race.
