The Trust Edge ... a Higher Trust

by Dale Shumaker
Spirit Savvy Network

The Trust Edge by David Horsager explains how to create trust through a business
What is trust?

To do what is right, to be the same every time, whatever the circumstances to believe in your ability, your consistency, your integrity, your commitment to deliver.

The edge.
The trust edge is the competitive advantage gained when others confidently believe in you.

Trust takes a long time to grow, yet it can be lost in a short period of time. Most people though will talk to a person in a couple minutes and decide if they are going to start to trust that person or not. It’s like a forest... it takes a long time to grow, but one careless act can burn it down quickly.

Talent is valuable, but without trust no one will want our talent. As trust increases, key ingredients to a strong business increase, such as retention, productivity, innovation, loyalty, revenue, etc.
As trust decreases, problems, skepticism, attrition, stress increase.

The Pillars that build trust:

Pillar 1  People trust the clear and distrust the ambiguous.  
A clear vision unifies and motivates, being specific in what you’re asking for, communication with shared meaning build trust.

Pillar 2  Compassion.
Caring leads to trust.

Profit is the reward someone gets for serving the general welfare. 
Four laws of compassion: Listen, appreciate, take-up for someone, and serve others.

Pillar 3  Character
“Nearly all men stand adversity.  If you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”
Abraham Lincoln

Integrity is being consistent in thoughts, words, and actions.
The surest way to live with honor in the world is to be in reality what we would appear to be.
Ask: “Am I doing the right thing?"
Be humble; live out your principles and values; be intentional, proactive, self-disciplined, be accountable.

Pillar 4  Competency
“The only thing more expensive than education is ignorance.”  
Ben Franklin

Keep learning, humility ability (from a know-it-all to a humble-self to listen to new ideas.) Join a mastermind group, read to learn, Interdependence, daily university (collect info you can learn throughout day.)

Pillar 5  Commitment
Great leaders show commitment so they are able to unite others to their cause. They take responsibility and spread praise around. Go the extra mile. Under-promise and over-deliver. Money can never replace passion. When people see your personal commitment, they trust you.

Pillar 6  Connection
We trust a friend's recommendation over a review from a critic. Stir and build connections. Key to connecting is conversation. Key to conversing is asking questions. Be magnetic, be real and be genuine, be transparent.  Collaborate.

Pillar 7  Contribution
Dong, not saying, builds trust. Give: Attention, Time, Opportunity, Resources, Help.
Take difference-making actions. Create a contribution strategy.

Pillar 8  Consistency
It’s the little things done consistently, that make the biggest difference. You never get one big change to be trusted in your life; you will get thousands of small ones. Just one inconsistency can change people’s perspective. Trust is not judged by the words you use.

Trusting people brings out their best and inspires trust in others.  Rebuild trust by apologizing thoroughly, forgive, let it go. Never burn a bridge.

Horsager continues on to show how to gain trust online, how to build courageous trust(risk takes courage).

More of The Trust Edge at

The Scriptures say to Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not depend or count  on your own ideas, education, experience. For God is Great, superior to anything on earth and when you humble yourself and trust Him, you can count on God to exceed your abilities to do things.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart;   
do not depend on your own understanding

6 Seek his will in all you do,
   and he will show you which path to take.
7 Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom.
   Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil.
8 Then you will have healing for your body
   and strength for your bones.
Proverbs 3

True trust is having faith in God more than yourself. When you seek Him, He will show you a Divine path to follow and give you ideas and strategies that surpass anything you could ever think up. But it takes seeking Him. It takes spending time reflecting on Him. When our personal devotion time is a stint of time connecting to God’s Spirit, and asking Him for answers, He will give us His Divine and unmatchable plans that no one can defeat.

With respect for Him and who He is, He will honor our devotion to Him. He is a consuming fire and will devour what opposes Him. So to fear Him and show respect to who He is also welcomes His Presence with us. He then shares His secrets with us as He then knows He can trust us with His Infinite knowledge and power to make it happen.

Trust God... respect Him above others, ideas and earthly conceived techniques.
Humbly put His knowledge above your own.
Consistently seek Him in all matters and He will guide you in paths that are nothing less than Superior to our way of doing things.
Always reject what is evil and follow the love of His Spirit. His Presence will always be with you and work awesomely through you.

The 8th Habit ... Dynamic of a Third Alternative

by Dale Shumaker
Spirit Savvy Network

One of the most profound concepts in The 8th Habit by Stephen Covey is what he calls finding the Third Alternative. That is combining ideas to create an idea that is better than any one person’s idea. It is getting a consensus from the group that they will work toward building solutions, bigger than any one person. This manifests a distinctive synergy, transformational Third Alternative.

To get there, Covey discusses the following skills that must be in place and functioning in a healthy way in a group.

“Communication is without a doubt the most important skill in life…” 
This includes reading, writing , speaking and listening. Most of our communication time is listening. Covey notes that no more than 5% of us have had more than two weeks of formal training in how to listen.

Listening has five levels… ignoring, pretend listening (patronizing), selective listening, attentive listening…. But the ideal level is empathic listening… that is listening within the other person's frame of reference.

Perception skills are critical for effective emphatic listening. He outlines four important things to learn about communication through the perception experience.
1. We have to be sincerely open… the foundation for arriving at third alternative solutions.
2. Take into consideration others’ life experiences and allow time to explain “why” they see it that way and what has led to it.
3. There isn’t just one way to interpret something. Each vision needs shared and merged.
4. Most communication breakdowns are products of semantics…how people define words from their experience.

One good listening rule is to use the Indian Talking Stick. It is an artfully carved about 5 feet high stick that Indian chief’s used in discussions. The only one who could speak was the one holding the Talking Stick. And the Talking Stick was not passed on until the person speaking felt understood by everyone else. You explained back to a person what he said until the person with the Talking Stick felt you understand him. When that person was satisfied that you understood him, you were given the Talking Stick. And then, you could take your turn and share your ideas, while holding the Talking Stick.

Over 90% of all communication problems are caused by differences in semantics or perception. What I think you are saying may not be what you mean, based on my experiences in contrast to yours. No one knows the experiences that have brought you to the conclusions you have, unless you explain them. For true understanding this must be sorted out.

According to Covey, to reach third alternatives, ideas better than the combination of each person’s ideas, these two rules apply.

1. Would you be willing to search for a solution that is better than what either one of us have proposed?
2. Would you agree to a simple ground rule: No one can make his or her point until they have restated the other person’s point to his or her satisfaction?

This forces discussion into a group synergy that kindles harmony and ground-breaking ideas higher than any one person of the group. This is a very powerful concept that pushes groups, or any discussion by any number people, to higher resolve and outcomes with exceptional impact.

The power of blending voices was acknowledged at Babel, in the Bible. The people of ancient times wanted to build a tower that reached up to the heavens. And God said because they are one people, one language, “nothing will be impossible for them.” God made man to have great power when united as one voice.

If they worked together as one, all the power of God's created universe was at their disposal and everything they set out to do would be done. God’s Spirit built this system of Spirit in His human creation. Their motives were self-centered, void of respect to God, their creator. So God scrambled their language so they would not be one voice and have unconquerable power.

In Malachi, its says those who feared, respectfully honored, the Lord spoke to each other and God responded to what they were talking about.

To the Corinthians, the Apostle said, “we have the mind of Christ.”
"We" as one unit, have the mind of Christ. As one mind, we are transfigured into the Mind of Jesus Spirit, the Ultimate, Unmatchable Spirit.

Jesus emphatically requested of God that we be One.
"That they be One, just as We are One. I in Them and You in Me, that they may be perfected into One." If all of Jesus Spirit is in "Us" and all of the Spirit of God is in Jesus, we then walk with a huge armory of Power. All of God's world creating Spirit is with us.This is what makes this principle so powerful.

When we are one, we have the mind of Jesus and His Spirit is with us... works on our behalf because it is His mind governing thoughts, directing widespread, prevailing actions. When as One Voice, we come together, taking all we say and blending it with others, we blend into the Mind of Jesus in what we discuss. While on the human level, one voice brings power as noted in Babel.

We see on the Spiritual level even greater Power, which yields unexplainable results by being One Voice ...

Love Works ... here's how

by Dale Shumaker
Spirit Savvy Network

Love Works is by Joel Manby, CEO of Herschend Family Entertainment(Silver Dollar City), Branson, Missouri. Manby qualifies that the principles of Love in a business enterprise really work. Love is a verb. Treating someone with love regardless of how you feel about that person is a very powerful principle.

Love exists in four dimensions. Eros is a love that is based on feeling and physical attractions; philos is a love of those we like to hang out with; storge is a natural love of family members; agape is an unconditional love. In an organization agape love works. Manby explains how.

Agape love is a God-inspired love. It holds its context in a Spiritual love. Its definition is that it is patient, kind, trusting, unselfish, truthful, forgiving, and dedicated. Here's how love works in any group, organization, business environment.

To be patient is to have self control in difficult situations. You don't need to be patient with poor performance, but be patient in how you respond to poor performance. Praise patiently in public and admonish patiently in private. When you praise be specific and exact, legitimate(avoiding insincere praise). When you admonish always remember to protect a person's dignity, get to the point and be specific. Reaffirm a person's value and get the person back on the horse, and don't bring it up again. Praise more than admonish in a ratio of 3 to1.

Show encouragement and enthusiasm. When the leader is kind it will influence the front line employees who interact directly with the customers. Every time you contact a person you can make their day better or worse, so why not make their day better. And it can require very little action or effort on your part. Break through the email clutter and write handwritten notes. Don't overlook writing supporting notes to spouses. Think of CEO as chief encouragement officer... we all can be CEO's.

Place confidence in someone. Listening carefully is a sign of trust. Interrupting people is a sign of distrust. Create trust by following your own declaration to things you do or prefer a certain way. Let others make a decision they are responsible for. Avoid overriding a decision that has been made unless it is absolutely necessary.

Think of yourself less. Give until it helps. Give money, give talent, give time. Be unselfish in making decisions, include others and make as few decisions as possible as a leader. Ask more questions, facilitate discussion, summarize discussion and recommend best direction.

Define reality corporately and individually. Don't shoot the messenger or confuse disagreement with conflict. Don't assume people see the truth... speak up. Getting the truth creates the best decisions. Find accountability people who will tell you the truth about yourself.

Release the grip on the grudge. What is most important is how you respond to what is done to you, more than what is actually done. Forgive those who have wronged your organization, and give someone another chance if it is a one-time offense. Be slow to fire and quick to forgive. Many times giving someone a second change doesn't work out well, but give it a shot anyways. The longer you hold a grudge the longer it will hold you. When you forgive you feel released to love, rebuild the relationship and not hold on to anger. It also gives the person you have forgiven a fresh start. It creates a ripple that affects the whole organization.


Stick to your values in all circumstances. Use both love and power. Jesus gave an example of how to do have power and show love. Reward people in both performance goals and character goals...that's "do" and "be" goals. It is possible to lead with love in difficult times. When faced with difficult decisions, lead with love.

A Choice you Make
Be the change you want to see in the world. Love when others don't. It is easier to hit the numbers than lead with love. Everyone one matters. You have a strong influence regardless of what position you take. Everyone is dealing with something so help people get through it. Love helps others get through their own struggles. "Be" goals, working to "be" a person of love, are as important as "do" goals, accomplishing what you want to accomplish. Working on "be" goals are not easy. Schedule time for "be" goals just like you do your "do" goals. Our life counts when we are in alignment with our set of values and we live them out daily. That takes a personal focus and effort.

Show the world that love works.

More on Love Works and Joel Manby at:

As Manby mentioned in his book, so what does love have to do with it?

Everything... according to Jesus.

"'You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.' 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 A second is equally important: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' 40 The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments."
(Matthew 22: 37-40, NLT)

Jesus simply said....

All the laws ever given are based on this commandment to love God with all our hearts, mind and soul and love everyone else the same way. And treat them the same way we would want to be treated... with respect and consideration of who we are.
And if we do this we make complete all the laws that exist.

The next challenge is to define love.
Paul said love is "patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance."
(1 Corinthians 13:4-7, NLT)

Interestingly, very little is said about achievement. It's about character. Actually, achievement was down played by Paul the Apostle. If you don't have love he said, everything else you do is worthless.

"If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it, but if I didn't love others, I would have gained nothing."
(1 Corinthians 13:3, NLT)

We have an achievement-based society. Money makes the world go round, but the admonishment was to have only one debt, one obligation, and that is to love each other.

"Owe nothing to anyone—except for your obligation to love one another. If you love your neighbor, you will fulfill the requirements of God's law."
(Romans 13; 8, NLT)

It boils down to that He loves us to the level that he is co-signing with us so that we have His assets as well. We share in all He has to the infinite extend of His glorious riches... Through our legal counsel Jesus Himself. Jesus, is our petitioner and is our power of attorney to all of God's wealth... materially, but most of all in our spirit and emotions. To love as Jesus loved.

This love is boundless and makes us happy like we never can fully understand.

Outwitting the Devil ... growing in faith

by Dale Shumaker
Spirit Savvy Network

Finding your mission, Empowering your life through prayer,
Becoming a Missionary in the Marketplace
Leading others to be Missionaries in the Marketplace

Outwitting the Devil by Napoleon Hill, was written in 1938 after Hill wrote Think and Grow Rich. The Napoleon Hill Foundation has held this manuscript and didn't publish it until June, 2011. Napoleon Hill's wife, who passed away around 1984, did not permit the foundation to release it because she felt it might offend some people. He address the issue of prayer and how there is an "other self" that guides us.

Although the foundation felt this was a very timely work for the era of the great recession America and the world is experiencing which started late in the first decade of 2000. In Outwitting the Devil, Hill has a discussion with the Devil who reveals his plan to keep us poor, unproductive and under his control. Hill never says whether this was a real or imaginary discussion although it appears to be a literary ploy by Hill to make his point... how the opposite of the Think and Grow Rich principles, which the Devil champions, will eventually make individuals impoverish and allow us to be under control of power-possessed leaders.

Outwitting the Devil... how Napoleon Hill outwits the Devil to reveal how he tricks people to live destitute lives under his control.

After learning the principles Hill published in Think and Grow Rich, it took him over twenty years until he saw them begin to work. One major lesson he learned was failure was an even greater teacher than success. It teaches you what not to do, like his conversation with the devil points out. His discussion with Andrew Carnegie began in 1908. He used the principles he learned and by 1927 he was hitting the success track. Then devastation hit him. He was pegged by a organized crime organization as an ally to a paper speaking out against them. They killed the publisher and Hill was on the hit list too. Hill ran for his life and hid out for years. The Great Depression began and now Hill was into destitution with barely anything left in his possession. Battling depression and loss of almost all of his friends, he was homeless and lived with any relative who would take him in. They began losing faith in Hill. Then Hill made a great discover, which was released in Outwitting the Devil.

We have an "other self."  Infinite Intelligence guides us and we all can tap into the power of the "other self."  In today's world, we may call it Spiritual Intelligence, but more than just intuitive, it's a Spiritual gift the Bible calls prophecy or having Divine knowledge without anyone telling us. Up to this time this may have been laughed at by many. The "soul" was yet to be added to his 17 principles of success. It can only be developed after the "other self" appears.

Where is this learned... through prayer Hill adds.
"This is your testing time. You have been reduced to poverty and humiliated in order that you might be forced to discover your 'other self.'"  This discovery comes usually as the result of an emergency, when men are forced to change habits, and to think their way out of a difficulty. Being cast into a life of fear, he learned how the "other self" guided him which transcended him into faith. "Every great leader of the past has been beset by difficulties and met with temporary failure before "arriving. From Christ to Edison, those who achieved the most were met with the most stubborn forms of failure. Here men learn the spirit of faith in times of difficulty when ordinary reasoning is inadequate for their needs."

Hill learned to concentrate on his purpose, and through prayer the plan would come. Infinite Intelligence knows more about plans than the one doing the praying. The result of prayer is a plan, a strategy, that can be attained through natural and material means. The plan must be transmuted according to Hill. This changed his whole life. Instead of going to prayer to confront difficulties, he learned to pray before difficulties come. "I pray not for more of the world's goods and greater blessings, but to be worthy of that which I already have."

Faith is the beginning of great achievement. Mixing faith with thoughts moves Infinite Intelligence to move with us. Infinite intelligence transmutes one's desires into concrete or material form.

The rest of the Outwitting the Devil is Hill's conversation with the Devil in which he tricks the Devil into revealing his own tricks to control a person's life... being held hostage against one's will, or heart's desires.

In interviewing the Devil, it is learned that the same power which bound millions of others in the Great Depression, is the chief weapon in which the Devil ensnares and controls human beings to this day.

The cleverest trick of the Devil for mind control is fear... fear of poverty, criticism, ill health, loss of love, old age, and death. He sows the seeds of negative thought and gets people thinking, in fear, about these as much as possible. War, enemy attacks, economic collapse breed fear in people's minds which is certainly the work of the Devil.

Another clever trick is to enter the minds of people as early as possible with fear, superstition, avarice, greed, lust, revenge, vanity and plain laziness. The trick is to get them while young. It gets people drifting. When drifting starts at an early age it becomes a natural part of their life for most of their lives. The Devil can get the best of them by having people drift through school with no vocation in mind.

So the second best trick is to develop the habit of drifting. Who's the Devil's allies to create drifting... parents, school teachers, and religious instructors. The Devil admits that this is not the second best trick but the first. He gets the parents, teachers, religious instructors to serve his purpose by destroying the children in the habit of thinking for themselves. The Devil said he used these sources to create fear in the child so to weaken the child's ability to reason and think for himself, which affects the child the rest of his life. On the other hand, nothing can stop someone who has accurate thought and it absolutely thwarts the Devil's methods.

The game plan is to get people to drift through school without a definite purpose or plan for living, take the first job that comes along, and this keeps millions in fear of poverty. The drifter has a total lack of major purpose in his life. The non- drifter has a mind of his own, a definite purpose, and mastery of self, and the Devil can't control it.

The Devil confessed that he brings failure so if someone quits trying they will go back to drifting. But those who overcome failure go on to experience even greater levels of success later on. Those who achieve enduring success will find, without exception, that their success has been in exact proportion to the extent that surmounted failure. Most failures are only temporary defeat and under any circumstances should it be used as an excuse to drift. Every failure brings with it the seed of an equivalent success. Unfortunately, few convert failure into stepping stones to success.

How to insure against the habit of drifting.
1. Do your own thinking on all occasions.
2. Decide definitely what you want from life.
3. Analyze temporary defeat and extract from it the seed of an
equivalent advantage.
4. Be willing to render useful service equivalent to the value of
all the material things you desire in life.
5. Recognize that your brain is a receiving set to receive Infinite
Intelligence that transmutes your desires into their physical equivalent.
6. Recognize that your greatest asset is time.
7. Recognize the truth that fear is generally a filler that the
Devil uses to occupy the unused portion of your mind.
8. When you pray, do not beg. Demand what you want
and insist on getting exactly that.
9. Recognize that life is a cruel taskmaster. You master it or
it masters you. Never accept from life what you do not want.
10. Remember, your dominating thoughts attract, by their
shortest and most convenient route, their physical counterpart.

Drifting can be broken in time... only if a definite purpose is found and followed. Otherwise the drifter may fall in the Devil's spider web and he won't be able to get out.

Any impression of thought that the mind repeats over and over again through habit forms an organized rhythm. When a person gives their mind over to fear, that becomes a pattern as an hypnotic rhythm forms. When that happens, the Devil has control. It takes a burning desire to break it. When someone uses their own mind, they can break it... use it or lose it. What you allow to be sowed in the mind you reap. What you deliberately sow in your mind you reap.

The world depression broke up habits of men and redistributed the sources of opportunity in all walks of life to unprecedented levels. Do not wait for opportunity to be placed in your way. Create opportunity to fit your desires and demands of life.

What defeats fear: faith
Faith is the opposite of fear and it comes from controlling your thoughts with a definite purpose with an intent to be of service to others. Hill defines faith as a state of mind where one recognizes and used the power of positive thought as a medium by which one contacts and draws upon the universal store of Infinite Intelligence. Faith is definiteness of purpose backed by belief, fueled by Infinite Intelligence. It takes repeated thought of a definite purpose which serves others to become a beneficial hypnotic rhythm that leads a person to the goals, the definite purpose each has identified. Hypnotic rhythm then is a healthy habit, a habit force as Hill called it, that works subconsciously to maneuver our behaviors in finding solutions that lead each person to his definite purpose.

The strongest power is to be in harmonic rhythm with others. When in harmony with others who share a definite purpose it provides the force that will accomplish the purpose two or more in harmony set out to do. So the mind must be in harmony with a person's definite purpose, the environment and education... all need to line up. He coined the concept of a master mind. When two or more are in harmony with each other and serve each other, it creates a third mind of power in life that draws all things to them of which they are in harmony in thought about. This is the true power of prayer.

The seven principles that overcome fear and defeats the Devil so he no longer has control over you are:

Definiteness of Purpose
A person who gains and maintains power must be definite in all his thoughts and his deeds. He recognizes the difference between temporary defeat and failure. When plans fail he substitutes others, but he does not change his purpose. He perseveres.

Mastery of self or self-discipline
The person who is not the master of himself can never be the master of others. It requires accurate thought and not grasshopper thinking where a person jumps from one thing to another and never completes anything.

Learning from Adversity
Failure is a man-made circumstance. It is never real until it is accepted by man as permanent. A person's success in and calling is usually in exact proportion or ratio to his experiences of defeat before succeeding. One can overcome adversity based on his ability to harmonize with others and in cooperation with others... who also live out these seven principles. There is a seed of equivalent advantage in every adversity.

Control environmental influences, associations
The material on which thoughts are fed comes from one's environment, his associations. All people take in, consciously or subconsciously, the thought-habits of those they associate closely with. Those who drift are influenced by other drifters; those with definite purpose assist others with definite purpose to form mastermind groups. Coming together with those who know, have education with experience propels them in their definite purpose.

giving permanence to thought-habits depends upon the object and the nature of the thoughts. Time converts thought-habits into permanency over the lifetime of the individual. We are born to think. With good thought habits we think ourselves into wisdom.

the law of harmony forces everything within the range of a given environment to become harmoniously related. Negative influences are forced into association with one another, where they may be. Positive influences are just as definitely forced into association with each other.  Successful men and women insist on harmony among their business associates... who share the same definite of purpose.

the most dangerous human trait is the lack of caution. The drifter moves without exercising caution. He acts first, thinks later. The non-drifter carefully thinks through his plans, making allowances for human frailties and plans ahead to bridge them. This includes his choice of close associates who have influence and contributes some benefits.

In summary
One's dominating desires can be crystallized into their physical equivalents through definiteness of purpose backed by definite plans, with the aid of natures law of hypnotic rhythm and time. Success and failure are the results of day-to- day evolutionary forces through which dominating thoughts are pieced together bit-by-bit and woven into the things we want or the things we do not want, according to the nature of these thoughts. What we sow in thought, we reap in life. For those who find the "other self" and seek the help of God, there is no limit to what they can accomplish in life.

Great people live in the Power of Faith.
The Bible says the righteous live by faith. (Hebrews 10:38)

What we believe we bring into being.
"Fear is dangerous. It turns into fact the things we fear. It creates evil just as faith creates good." (John G. Lake)

What God promises we can hold on to as fact. The power of Spirit has become a privilege for us to live in all of God's power. We are made right with God through faith. We are made right with Him with Jesus' one act.... He was resurrected. The only person ever to do this. And Now He gives us the same privilege... to be resurrected from all the deaths we face in our lives.

As we align ourselves in alignment with Spirit that works Greatly in us we live in the Character of God. The Scriptures say we are not under the Laws of Old but we live by Spirit.
"But now we have been released from the law, for we died with Christ, and we are no longer captive to its power. Now we can really serve God, not in the old way by obeying the letter of the law, but in the new way, by the Spirit." (Romans 7:6)

We excel with this new power that works in us, and we heed the inner voice of the Spirit. We can listen to this Supernatural voice of God's very own intelligence directing our paths…God's very own Spirit of creative Power working for us.

This is all possible...for those who have faith and believe.

In Ever Increasing Faith by Smith Wigglesworth, he inspirationally defines faith and its character. Note:

"God wants us to be free in every part of life. Men and women are tired of imitations, they want reality; they want to see people who have the Living Christ within, filled with Spirit Power."

"Spirit has a realm of divine life opening up to us where there are boundless possibilities, where there is limitless power, where there are untold resources, where we have victory over every conceivable force that could face us."

"There is only darkness in the natural. Darkness only exists when the natural is put in place of the divine."

"He keeps us so that no evil can touch us. I see a place in God where evil forces dare not come...Hidden in God. And He invites us all to come into this Secret Place of the Most High God." God has this place for us in Spirit.

"The impartation of this power produces everything you need; but it comes only as our faith moves out for its impartation. Faith gives us victory. If you believe... It Is Yours!"

"You can never be ordinary from the day you receive this life from above. You become extraordinary, filled with extraordinary power from the extraordinary Spirit of God that lives in you."

"There is no stopping the current of life,
of love, of inspiration, and of Power.
God has brought unlimited resources for everyone."
