Juices, Water / All Day
Did you know that you are ALREADY prosperous??? No, I don’t mean in a minimizing or non-material way. Prosperity is IN you because of Christ’s Redeeming work. This prosperity is to invade your life in every area, giving you the wherewithal to fulfill your assignments with great joy and abundance. It is first spiritual, emotional/psychological and then it IS material.
In the same way that healing is a Redemptive fact, an impassioned demonstration by Christ at Calvary, so is God's supernatural provision for our lives and callings. Prosperity is best defined as having unlimited available resources to do everything we are called to do. Redemption makes this a fact, not just a promise, before we ever face a spiritual, emotional or financial need. We should never wonder at God's will to give us an abundant supply. We don't wait on experience to confirm God's will after we pray. In fact we really don't need to pray for financial/material things; we should engage laws of the Kingdom and execute authority over them in the earth.
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us, for it is written, Cursed is everyone that hangs on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith...And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. (Gal. 3:13,14,29)
Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the Law! What is the curse of the Law? The only way to find out is to go back to the Law. The expression "the Law," as found in the New Testament, usually refers to the Pentateuch, or the first five Books of the Bible. As we go back to these books—or the Law—we find that the curse, or punishment, for breaking God's law is highlighted most often in three simple areas: poverty, sickness, and spiritual death.
According to Deuteronomy 28:15-17, 38-40, the curse of poverty was to come upon people if they disobeyed God’s laws. It was a curse that would come upon them because they failed to observe all His commandments and His statutes. This wasn't a show of God’s revenge or retribution; but man, in violation of God's spiritual laws, engaged the judgment/curse that was inherent within a law. In Deuteronomy, God is simply warning the people He loves that judgments come when spiritual laws are broken without repentance. The curse wasn't a personal attack from God, but a process that happens when laws are disregarded. The law itself brought the judgment/curse. Similar to how a violation of gravity isn't a personal vendetta from God, the law itself holds the judgment.
Jesus gave us progressive revelation of this by sharing, "He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him--the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day (John 12:48 NKJV).”
The Apostle Paul also says, “[But] we know that the judgment (adverse verdict, sentence) of God falls justly and in accordance with truth… 12 …all who have sinned under the Law will be judged and condemned by the Law (Romans 2:2, 12).”
Within the violation of the law is the curse of that broken law. The curses are physical, emotional/psychological, material/financial and social. But Christ has Redeemed us from the curse of the law. So Christ has Redeemed us from physical, emotional/psychological, material/financial and social need.
In today’s devotional emphasis, Christ redeemed us from the curse over our financial/material needs and desires. In Christ we have unlimited available resources we can access at anytime through exercising spiritual authority. Paul said, writing to the Church at Philippi, "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:19). Jesus Himself said, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these (material) things shall be added unto you" (Matthew 6:33).
Lord God, I receive my salvation in full. Help me understand and see the full Redemption Christ paid for me. Help me comprehend that I am “rich” and can access all your unlimited available resources anytime. Teach me how to think right about these truths, believe right and walk out the abundance of your grace. I receive the blessings of Abraham and believe that everything I set my hand to prospers in Jesus Name!

SUGGESTED READING: EPHESIANS 5 (NIV)
1 Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children 2 and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
3 But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. 4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. 5 For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person—such a person is an idolater—has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient. 7 Therefore do not be partners with them.
8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) 10 and find out what pleases the Lord. 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. 14 This is why it is said:
“Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”
15 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. 18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, 20 always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. 22 Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— 30 for we are members of his body. 31 “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” 32 This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. 33 However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
Christ has redeemed me from the curse of the law. Christ has redeemed me from poverty. Christ has redeemed me from sickness. Christ has redeemed me from spiritual death (Galatians 3:13; Deuteronomy 28). For poverty He has given me wealth, for sickness He has given me health, for death He has given me eternal life (II Corinthians 8:9; Isaiah 53:5-6; John 10:10; John 5:24). There is no lack for my God supplies all of my need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). The Lord is my shepherd and I DO NOT WANT. Because Jesus was made poor so that I, through His poverty, might have abundance. For He came that I might have life and have it more abundantly (Psalm 23:1; II Corinthians 8:9; John 10:10).
Workshop Saturation is when we take spiritual topics and listen to them until they change the way we think, believe and live. Many of us have approached God, His Word and teachings like other academic pursuits, to gain data-knowledge. Saturation is when we are focused on BECOMING the truth we are learning. It’s when the Word becomes a part of your very personality, extracting the spiritual substance within the text.
Our Workshops can be viewed via video or listened to in MP3 format, so you can listen while putting makeup on, eating breakfast, driving to and from work, working out or any number of other activities.
