My Review: A Must Read!

The Truth As I See It: In Poetry & ProseThe Truth As I See It: In Poetry & Prose by Nakia R. Laushaul

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Author Nakia R. Laushaul loves God, life and family. She is a strong woman and has captured this strength in her poetry book "The Truth As I See It: In Poetry & Prose". This was the first poetry book I have actually read all the way through. I must say it was well structured as a compilation and equally well packaged. One poem and I guarantee you'll be up all night.

On a personal note, it was truly a blessing to me. Especially, "The Trials of Raising a Man Excuse me. Mine is missing the manual". It definitely spoke to me and I am so glad to this day to have read at a time I needed for encouragement that everything is going to be okay. Awesome Read!

Changing of Hands: Three principles in obtaining the wealth you need

Are you in a place in your life where you are pulling your hair out trying to figure out how to manage your finances from day to day.If you are continually strapped financially and are sick and tired of it, God has help for you. Many, today, live on borrowed time and borrowed money. The Bible does not teach, as some propose that all debt is wicked and sinful. However, it does teach the undesirability of debt. Debt should be a last resort. God may occasionally allow it in order to teach us discipline. However, He never meant it to be a way of life.

Proverbs 13:22 says,” A good man leaves an inheritance [of moral stability and goodness] to his children's children, and the wealth of the sinner [finds its way eventually] into the hands of the righteous, for whom it was laid up”. This tells us the wealth will eventually come into our hands when we are living right. God will cause the transfer of wealth to come into the hands of His sons and daughters, from the hands of sinners.

You have to stand on the authority of Jesus Christ and declare by faith that poverty must go out of your lives. Deuteronomy 8:18 is evident that “God is the one that gives the power to get wealth.” So how do we tap into this power we already have to get wealth? Quite simple, it begins with prayer. We have to pray for the power to obtain this wealth.

I believe there are three practical principles relating to this divine prosperity. If applied correctly, they will truly manifest in our lives as it relates to our money:

I. Make Money – You have to be able to make money legally. Proverbs 10:22 “The blessing of the LORD brings wealth, without painful toil for it.” You need to pray for the wisdom of God to generate unique idea that will enable you to get this wealth.

II. Manage Money – You have to have the right perspective on how to manage money. Haggai 1:5-6 says, “Give careful thought to your ways. You have planted much, but harvested little. You eat, but never have enough. You drink, but never have your fill. You put on clothes, but are not warm. You earn wages, only to put them in a purse with holes in it.” In other words, there are some people, even if you give us $1M, $1K, $100, or even $10, we will mismanage it. If you are not a good steward and handle your monies incorrectly, you will go back into begging and borrowing.
III. Multiply Money – Learn how to multiply the wealth God has given you. It is not enough to make money, but you need to multiply it. Pray for discernment to make the right investments. I am reminded of Issac in Genesis 26:13, “And the man became great and gained more and more until he became very wealthy and distinguished”.

Are you ready to experience wealth? Pray and believe in faith God will manifest His power in you to get wealth and wealth will change into your hands.

Burst Open Heaven!

Have you ever felt like there’s a blockage? You move forward, then you take two steps backward? There are so many problems you don’t know what to do? As a word of encouragement, this is the time to really pray. The tenacity of your prayer must be capable of causing the heavens to open for your sake. The Word says “OH, THAT You would rend the heavens and that You would come down, that the mountains might quake and flow down at Your presence”-- (Isaiah 64:1 - AMP).

Open heavens will enable us to obtain the breakthrough we need in our lives.
When the heavens open the angels of God will begin to ascend and descend bringing multiple blessings for each of us. These blessings include: favor, power, promotion, breakthrough, finances, good health, joy, peace, etc.

One of the curses in Deuteronomy 28:23 (AMP) says, “The heavens over your head shall be brass and the earth under you shall be iron.” This shows that it is possible for our heaven to be closed. So we have to become strategic in prayer to get back what is due to us by busting open heaven.

When your heaven become brass, your angels cannot reach you, Daniel fasted for 21 days. When his angel of blessing came he said: “Then he said to me, Fear not, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your mind and heart to understand and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come as a consequence of [and in response to] your words.” (Daniel 10:12-AMP) The heavens were closed because of satanic obstacles. However, Daniel faithfully continued praying until his answer came.

Likewise, we need to continue praying; prayer is the key that turns God’s promises into reality. Now is not the time to give up and get weary. On the contrary, this is the time to gear up. “God will rend the heavens”, the angels of God will begin to ascend and descend upon your life” (John 1:15 – NLT).
