personal relationship with God is more than a celestial
insurance policy that guarantees safe passage to paradise when
you die. It has more to do with the here and now. If you get
the here and now right, you donít need to worry about what will
happen when you die. The Father who took care of you during
your stay on planet earth is trustworthy, and when itís time for
your promotion, He will take care of you on the other side of
eternity. You can count on that!
his love on you right where you are with all your problems and
addictions, and He does it now. The Father is a here and now
too hard for God. After all, He created the universe and
everything in it. When it comes to dealing with your problems
and turning your life around, Heís in it with you for the long
haul, and He is ready to move mountains of difficulty out of
your life. God will do more than point you in the right
direction. He will also give you the power to make the trip.
what can you expect from your personal relationship with God?
When Jesus started
his mission on planet earth, he stated exactly what you should expect.
He said that he came, ďTo announce good news to the poor, to proclaim
freedom for the prisoners, recovery of sight for the blind, to release
the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lordís favor.Ē That is his
master plan for the here and now.
There is Good
News in the here and now, and you are supposed to take it
There is Freedom
in the here and now, and you are supposed to take it personally.
There is Recovery
from what has been lost in the here and now, and you are supposed to
take it personally.
There is Release
from oppression in the here and now, and you are supposed to take it
There is Godís
special favor in the here and now, and you are supposed to take it
God has a dream for
your life that has all of these components in it. His master plan is
good news from start to finish. Old things will pass away, and God will
make all things new. You will discover the truth that sets you free.
You will recover what has been lost. You will be released from all
forms of oppression, and your addictions will become a thing of the
past. Finally, God will open the windows of heaven and pour out
blessings into your life. That sounds like a plan that I can live with.
Thatís what Jesus
came to do in the here and now, and itís high time that you take it
What does it mean to
have a personal relationship with God?
When Jesus talked
about God, he called him Father. Jesus referred to God more than 150
times using the word Father. This isnít an accident. Jesus wanted us
to understand that when we open our heart and mind to the Fatherís love,
we are born spiritually. God makes our spirit come alive, and thatís
why we audaciously dare to call him Father. The Father is also the
source of all good things in our life. All of our talents and abilities
are gifts that come directly from him. We are not the source. He is
the Source and provides whatever we need. The Source is always with us.
Jesus said, ďHe who
has seen me, has seen the Father,Ē and then he added, ĎI and the Father
are one.Ē Jesus always spelled things out in simple terms that even
children can understand. He said that if you want to know what God is
like, look at me.
At the most basic
level, you have a personal relationship with God when you open your
heart and mind to his love, and you dare to call him Father. You then
learn what your relationship with the Father is like by looking at Jesus
and seeing how he interacted with ordinary people who have problems just
like you and me.
Jesus said that
unless you become as a little child, you will never enter the kingdom of
heaven. Having a personal relationship with God is so simple that even a
child can do it.
In Matthew 16:23 Jesus said, ďYou are a stumbling block to me. You
think as men think, not as God thinks.
Jesus said that when we think like men, we stumble. How we think
and what we think is important. Wrong thinking trips us up. We
need a new way of thinking; we need to think as God thinks.
When you get in agreement with God, then you are thinking the way
that God thinks. You need to understand how God thinks so that you
can get in agreement with him.
God is the God of the possible. Impossible is not found in
his vocabulary, and impossibility doesnít exist in his universe.
Everything is possible when you think the way God thinks.
God is the source of all good things. All that you are or
have comes directly or indirectly from him. There are no shortages
in Godís kingdom of love. Everything that you need to live an
abundant life is already present and available for those who think
as God thinks.
How does God think?
God thinks abundance. Jesus said that he had come so that
you might have life and have it more abundantly. God created the
world and everything in it. What you need is no big deal to God.
Supplying your needs wonít break his back or bankrupt his kingdom.
God enjoys giving you good things. His plan is to fill your cup
with blessings until it runs over.
God thinks possibility. All things are possible when you
think the way God thinks. God is the God of possibility, and there
is no limit to how good your life can become when you think the way
God thinks positive. The most positive force in the universe
is Godís love. It changes the way you think and feel making you
into a positive person.
God thinks positive expectations. When you get into
agreement with God, your expectations change. Impossible becomes
possible, and scarcity becomes abundance. God has a powerful
positive plan for your life. God expects good things to happen in
your life when you think the way that He thinks.
God thinks forgiveness. God forgives you for the wrong
things that you have done. He not only wipes the slate clean, He
also throws the slate away.
God thinks freedom for the captives. Jesus came to set the
prisoners free. The chains of lack and limitation fall off when you
think the way God thinks.
God thinks release from oppression. Jesus came to liberate
you from all forms of oppression. Economic, spiritual, chemical, and
psychological dependencies disappear when you think the way God
God thinks recovery of what has been lost. The blind receive
their sight. What the world destroys and takes away, God recovers
God thinks favor. He bestows his blessings on all who get in
agreement with him. He opens the windows of heaven, and blessings
fall all around.
God thinks good news. God has no dark side. He is on our
side, and is in it with us for the long haul. All of Godís thoughts
are good news. When you become silent and listen for Godís voice,
you hear his positive message of love.
You can trust God. If you do your part, God will do his. When you
get in agreement with him, when you think the way that He thinks,
then God starts working miracles in your life.
God already knows what you need even before you ask. God wants to
give you good things even more than you want to receive them. But
first you must ask.
Jesus said, ďAsk and you will receive.Ē Asking simply recognizes
that God is the source of all good things, and that He can be
trusted to provide. Outsourcing doesnít exist in Godís kingdom of
love. All of us need to be reminded that God is our source. God
will give you what you need unless you block him. There are no
shortages in Godís kingdom. If you aren't getting what you need,
it's because of lack of faith, lack of trust, and lack of positive
expectations. God is a God of abundance, and when you get in
agreement with him, when you trust him to supply your needs, when
you have positive expectations, then the windows of heaven open, and
blessings fall all around.
LITTLE IS MUCH WHEN GOD IS IN IT
The rich and
famous have a disadvantage. Many believe they are self-made and
donít recognize that all their talents and abilities are gifts from
God. They trust in themselves rather than in the One who gave them
their gifts. Itís hard for God to use those who trust only in
themselves. God could have used them in a bigger way if they had
trusted in him.
Jesus said it was easier for a camel
to go through the eye of a needle than it is for a rich man to enter
into the kingdom of heaven. When you trust only in yourself, you
never get in agreement with God, and you miss out on his purpose and
If you arenít rich, powerful, or
famous, then you are exactly the type of person that God is looking
for. If you have a willing heart that is full of love, you have
everything you need to be used by God. If you donít feel quite up
to the challenge, then you are exactly where you need to be. God is
always up to the challenge, and when good things happen, you
discover that He is the one who made them come to pass.
Heroes of faith know that itís not
about them. Itís about God making big things happen. God looks for
ordinary people who have a willing heart, and who put their trust in
him. With Godís help, ordinary people do extraordinary things.
Little is much when God is in it.

created positive thinking to be the natural software for your mind.
It's the way He designed your mind to work.

depressing thoughts do not come from God. They are an exercise in
self-destruction and indicate that a negative operating system
controls your mind.

it's like to sail on the ocean of your dreams by watching Dr. Dave's DVD
- The Red Sea Chronicles. Put some positive adventure into your mind

Captain Dave and his
family spent eleven years sailing around the world on their Privilege 39
catamaran, Exit Only. During the trip, the crew of Exit Only shot 200
hours of video with professional cameras to show people what it's like
to sail on a small boat around the world.
The Red Sea Chronicles is a one hour and twenty-two minute feature
film showing their adventures as Exit Only sails through Pirate
Alley in the Gulf of Aden and up the Red Sea. The professional footage
documents their experiences in Oman, Yemen, Eritrea, Sudan, Egypt, and
the Suez Canal. It chronicles the rigors of traveling in a remote
section of the world rarely visited by cruisers. Exit Only dodges
Yemeni pirates, fights a gale and sand storms in the Bab al Mandeb at
the southern entrance to the Red Sea. The crew explores deserted
islands on the western shores of the Red Sea, and learns to check the
cruising guides for land mines before venturing ashore.
The Red Sea Chronicles also has outstanding Special Features that
include an Instructional Video on Storm Management that tells
sailors how to deal with storms at sea.
The Red Sea Chronicles is a first class adventure that stokes the
sailing dreams of both experienced and wannabe sailors alike. Order

Exit Only as they sail around the world and up the Red Sea.
