If You Were My Daughter, Part 3

#1) Who Are You Willing To Learn From?

We can’t learn from someone we resent….

Who do I admire?

Who inspires me?

Who knows and values your authenticity–your difference?

Don’t waste your energy searching when someone close to you knows the answer.

Don’t be stupid.

There’s no one weaker than a non-reacher.

The more conversations you have, the more you’ll learn.

Inventory your present property.

What are 5 other options that’ll cost you nothing at all.

The purpose of waiting is to gather information.

Mentorship is learning from someone else’s pain.

Mentorship is learning without the wait.

When you ask enough questions you attract the right answers.

Pain is the proof of the wrong questions.

Pain is the proof of disorder.

Who are 10 people who can learn from?

What questions should I be asking them?

What qualities in your father do you admire?

What qualities do you wish your husband would have?

A man’s goals reveal what he values.

Where has your father failed?
Where has he succeeded?

What are you learning from your mother?

What is her advice that I’ve ignored?

In the Book of Proverbs, it deals a lot with listening.

The last words Jesus spoke, “Hear what the Spirit is saying…”

Listen to where your parents had failures.

What do they wish they’d done differently?

What do they wish they’d done differently with money?

There’s no persuasion like experience.

A day without regret is a day you’ve made no discoveries.

Every day you should feel stupid about something, because that is where you learned.

The greater your discovery, the deeper your pain.

Who are you not learning from that you should be learning from?

Don’t try to learn everything from one person.

The electric company doesn’t furnish me water.
The water company doesn’t furnish me a car.

Ask someone / your parents to tell you what mistakes do you think I’m making?

What topic do you want to master?

#2) Do You Really Believe in the Word of God?

Have you really settled the Bible in your heart?

Do you really believe Jesus is the Son of God?

Until you’re persuaded about the power,
and the presence of God, to make your life right–
everything that you’re battling can destroy you.

You must settle that–you’ve got to settle that.

Embrace the God of your parents until something greater affects you.

#3) The Ability To Say No

Men will desire you for different reasons, and when it’s all said and done:
If somebody is pursuing you, they want something.

They want a reaction, a result, a good thought, your wisdom, your favor.

Reaching is the seed for relationship, knowledge, change.

Why is this person calling me?

Even God, He wants something.

He wants me to choose His path , He wants to be chosen.

When a man pursues you, he wants something.

He may want admiration.

He may want confirmation of what he’s thinking.

Don’t let anybody kid you–you can’t “have it all”.

If God Himself cannot “have it all”, do you think you can?
No. Don’t be fooled into thinking you can “have it all”.

So you choose what brings you joy, pleasure.

Choose some small pleasures.

If you can’t buy a new house, go buy an ice cream cone.

And then make them routine–every day.

Make small pleasures your life, every day.

If you can’t get the new car, go spend $10 on a book.

[repeat this prayer]
Holy Spirit, I am a searcher for uncommon wisdom. Holy Spirit, I am Your protege. Reveal mentorship opportunities to me. I will not reject wisdom. I embrace wisdom.

Father, give me understanding of unspoken agendas. When people are pursuing me, help me to discern what they want from me. Heal my mind. Heal my memories. And do business through me on the earth.

In the matchless name of Jesus.

5 Things That Can Change Your Life In A Day

Mon 04-08-13
Church By Phone

When God stirs you over a topic or
instruction, something that inspires
you, seize it.

Embrace, grab, take a hold of, pursue it.

When He reveals a special word to you,
a “rhema” word, a “now” word, an
understanding that’s greatly
magnified in your heart.

It’s my responsibility to find
inspiration in the world He created.

It’s nobody else’s responsibility
to inspire, or encourage me.

It’s my responsibility to inspire myself.

Dr. Murdock is heading out to
Nigeria tomorrow [today, April 9th]

The difference between
seasons is a conversation.

5 Things That Can Change Your Life Today

notes

1) A conversationZacchaeus had a
conversation with Jesus, and it
changed his life in a day.
– Don’t look a life as something to
endure, look at it as something to enter
>> you enter a zone, every morning,
every hour, every day
>> you can change your life in a
few seconds: you’ve just got to hate
where you are to enter where
you want to be
>> you’ll always adapt what you
can and what you will, you’ll
stay in a comfort zone
– a conversation can change
your life in a day
>> you may be required to
initiate the conversation
– When people say, “Don’t judge me”,
that’s a stupid thing to say
>> of course you judge each other
>> the Bible even says, “Judge yourself,”
so others won’t have to
>> judging simply means to assess
your conduct, effort, behavior
– take action, have initiative
– Zaccheus took initiative
– the woman with the issue of blood,
the blind man who cried out to Jesus–
they had initiative
– the first two letters of “God”,
“Gospel”, “good” = “Go”!
– A-S-K – He didn’t say “wait”,
He said, “Ask…”
>> Well, if you don’t ask,
what do you do, wait?
>> No! Seek…knock…!
>> Three levels of passion
– you may have to
initiate a conversation
– don’t ever owe a debt,
and act like you don’t
– if you owe someone money
& you’re out of work, you
just became their employee,
their “servant”
– What kind if conversation
should you initiate?
>> Apologies
>> Explanations
>> Confession
– To change your favor with God,
enter into conversation with Him
>> there’s a lot of ways to talk to God:
> Something you say, helping someone,
something you do, something you sow

Don’t you want to change your life?
Do you want to improve your life?
Do you want to excel?

Where should there be a conversation?

Conversation that demonstrates honor.

Do you know who you are talking to?
>> Upward, downward, or laterally?

The person who is the senior–
the senior person at any table
is authorized to guide the conversation.

Not the youngest. The 4 year-old does
not guide the conversation at the table.

There’s a place of authority.

If you have dishonored your wife,
there needs to be a conversation.

Initiate it.

I wait for very little.

Those who wait have very
little desire, little passion.

“Good things come to those
who wait,” is an imbecilic,
satanic ploy–have you
ever heard that?

“Waiting upon the Lord” has
nothing to do with delaying
activity, or decisions.

Most prayers are wasted
because God’s not waiting
for you to make a prayer,
He’s waiting for you to
make a decision.

Prayer is often used to delay
the potential bad decision
that we don’t want to make.

People say they’re “waiting on God”, when
He said, “Seek and you shall find”. He never
said, “wait and you shall find”.

You want to change your life in a day?

Start talking.

  • Talk upward to those you
    need to show honor to.
  • Talk downward to those
    who need to be trained by you.
  • Talk laterally to those who
    need to work with you.

You’re going to have to initiate
a conversation to create
changes in your life.

How long are you going to have
to wait at the Exxon station
before God puts gas in your car? πŸ˜‰

There’s things you’ve gotta do, right?

Well, then do ’em.

Shut up and do ’em.

Shut up and do them.

Do what you’re supposed to do.

Do it, and do it with excellence.

Do it with all your heart.

Do it with all your might.

What conversation is
missing in a relationship?

What conversation have you
failed to have with your upline?
(with those in authority over
your life).

Are you waiting for invisible mentorship
to pierce the airwaves [earways?] of those
under your training?

Archbishop Marguerite Idahosa:
Her husband was known as Archbishop
Benson Idahosa.

Dr. Murdock had known
Benson Idahosa for 34 years.
He was a wonderful man of God.

Years ago, there was a public
outcry over an incident in Nigeria
where the Vice President of
Nigeria said, Nigeria is a
Muslim nation b/c everyone
in Nigeria knew that they were
a Christian nation.

Some of the leaders said, We’re
going to go pray about this, and
The Archbishop Benson Idahosa
said, We are not going to go
pray. That issue is too little for
God to handle. He put us in charge
of matters on the earth. We’re going
to take care of this.

And he got on the phone to the Vice
President of Nigeria and persuaded
him to publicly apologize and recant
his statement.

Have you ever heard someone say,
“There’s no problem too small for God” ?

What a stupid, idiotic, ridiculous statement.
You want God killing the roach in your room?
You want God putting cheese in your rat traps?

Dr. Murdock:
I like clear conversation.
I don’t like “slither”.
I’m very adversarial to deceivers.
I don’t permit life.
I decide it.
I don’t permit what will happen to me,
I decide what I want to happen in my life.
That’s God commandment to us.
He’s given us responsibility to our territory.

What is the territory God has
assigned for you to govern?

What is the turf that
requires your attentiveness?

And what are you doing about it?

You need to have some conversations
with the people under you.

You need to go back and say,
What did I instruct you to do?

– Remember: Ruth changed her life with
one conversation that made her “Mrs. Boaz”

The 2nd thing that can
change your life in a day…

2) One act of servanthood
– Look at Rebecca:
>> She changed her life when she
noticed an old man needed attention
>> She offered him water…
– Servanthood is a seed
– Servanthood is proof of character
– When servanthood becomes an
obsession with you, to host the
people around you, the “fragrance”
of a servant comes upon you until
the servant actually becomes the
master….
– Almost nobody grasps this, but:
>> The person who serves the best
becomes the authority in the
environment (meditate on that)
– Rebecca was an incredible woman,
and she looked at Eleazar, the Chief
liaison for Abraham (and Isaac) &
said, Can I also water your camels?
>> There’s money, there’s blessing
where those camels are going
– If you want to change your life in
a day, start serving

Who’s pain can you remove?

3) Confession
– I’m sorry
– It did for the thief hanging next to Jesus
– Don’t argue about how
right or wrong you are
– One confession can turn
chaos into promotion
– See: the publican vs the pharisee
– confession stops prosecution

4) Obedience to an instruction

[example] Part of Dr. Murdock’s testimony:

At 4:30pm on a Wednesday afternoon,
God gave him an instruction. Something
he had never done. God gave it to him
thru somebody else. It was about sowing
seed. God said, Do it by 10pm tonight.

In 24 hours [after following the instruction],
God had blessed him with more money than
he had ever had in his life.

By 72 hours, God had given him enough
money to buy a beautiful Cessna Citation
jet–a jet, cash.

When you ask God for a future,
He’ll give you an instruction.

An instruction is a bridge to the
dreams that you’re talking about.

The difference between where you are
and where you want to be is an instruction.

And the bridge is never long–it’s instant.

God doesn’t take you on a long bridge.

The prodigal son’s bridge was long because
he decided to take his life into the pigpen.

5) A seed

Use your seed for conversation.

– My seed is my “talker”.
>> My seed talks to God for me.

My seed is my ambassador
for me into my future.

My seed is the only voice
my future will obey.

My future whimpers for
instruction at the foot of my seed.

My seed rules my world.

I use my seed to talk to
God about what I need,
what I want, and what
I expect.

– see Pastor Howard Hogan (83 years old)
>> a confidant of Dr. Murdock’s

He told Pastor Hogan, I have lost money
in everything but God. I’ve lost over $30,000
in oil wells. I listened to a banker and lost
$250,000 in mutual funds in one year.

Warren Buffett said, “Never invest in something
that you don’t want to know a lot about.”

 

By the way, a “bullish” market is on its way up.
(think: the horns on a bull are pointing “up”)

A “bear” market is trending down.

 

There’s a $500,000 money market
in Heaven today for one listener
of Church By Phone.

Dr. Dave Martin :
– Have Dave Martin speak in your church, if you
want to have a financial breakthrough.
>> Dr. Dave Martin and his wife, Christina–after
an instruction from Dr. Murdock to plant a $500
seed (they had $503 to their name at the time)–
planted a $500 seed. 10 days later, Christina
was shopping at Wal-Mart & they just happened
to be filming a commercial that would use the
Wal-Mart security cameras. The Martins have
since received thousands and thousands of
dollars from the residual checks off of that
commercial–specifically, off of the $500
seed that they had planted after being
obedient to a man of God’s instruction.

[prayer]
Father, I ask you for 10 people to plant a $500 seed and to have the most electrifying revelation of seed time and harvest. When we ask you for a harvest, You ask us for a seed. When we ask you for a harvest, You give us an instruction. What You did for Christina–what you did for Dr. David Martin, because of one seed of obedience. Father, I ask You for 10 obedient seeds for the Kingdom of God.

Father, there are some listening right now–You have given them an instruction that they have not yet obeyed–Father, give them Holy Ghost courage to obey that instruction with expectation of a harvest. For the glory of God, I decree it. For the glory of God!

Father, while I am in Nigeria, give these 10 people 10 days of surprise conversations, and cause them to journal these surprise conversations. For the glory of God, it is done. Praise God!

Praise God!

A Surprise Conversation #3 (Day 5/10)

A Surprise Conversation #3 (Day 5/10)
Wed 04-03-13
Church By Phone

Dr. Murdock is driving with some minister friends
Dr. Mike Smalley is in the car with Dr. Murdock…

[don’t forget to journal about
your surprise conversations…!]

Remember that surprise conversation.

This was initially going to be
on The Law of Influence…

But God is talking to Dr. Murdock
so much about this:

A Surprise Conversation

notes

In fact, people all over
the world are already
sending in their testimonies:
> homes are being reunited
> families are being
healed and set free
> businesses are having turnarounds

Where you decide to use your
faith is where you’ll see miracles
in your life.

Remember: miracles are not
according to God’s whim or fancy.

God reacts to faith.

Miracles are the fruit of faith,
the proof of your faith.

Some say, God if You love me,
You’ll give me a miracle.
God replies, If you’d
believe Me, you’d see it!

God’s got a qualified group
of people in front of Him
and He’ll qualify you to
receive from Him.

Become persuaded that
faith becomes ecstasy in
the heart of God.

Reminder:

The only thing God does is speak.
The only thing God does is talk.

He loved words so much
He called Himself the Word.

Conversations create marriages.
Conversations destroy marriages.

Conversations launch World Wars.
Conversations stop World Wars.

Conversation is the
seed for earthly events.

Conversation is the birthplace
for every human experience.

James 3:3-5 (KJV)
The brother of Jesus, James,
says that our tongue is like
the rudder of ship.

A huge ship is controlled
by a small rudder.

A rudder decides whether or not
the ship will reach its destination

Be swift to let God use you, to give
birth to a surprise conversation.

A woman who’d been
married 5 times went to a well.
And Jesus went into
a surprise conversation with her.
An entire city came to Christ.

An Ethiopian eunuch in Acts 8, is
staring at the words, just baffled by
a passage in Isaiah, when suddenly
the Spirit of God drops off the Spirit-
filled Deacon, Phillip, and a surprise
conversation
ensues, culminating in
the eunuch being saved and baptized,
and Phillip is caught back up by/into
the Spirit.

[note: Check out this PDF/paper I found
looking for references to the Ethiopian
eunuch entitled “A Divine Appointment
Is that not a fitting title?? πŸ™‚ ]

And according to Josephus, the
Jewish historian: that eunuch
led 90% of Ethiopia
to Christ. [could not confirm
this but here’s the Wikipedia
Christianity in Ethiopia
Any help would be greatly appreciated!]

A surprise conversation.

Praise God, praise God!

Praise God.

It’s gonna happen.

It’s gonna happen:

Between now and April 9th, every
single partner of this ministry who
walks in obedience to God’s voice,
is going to hear, have, experience a
surprise conversation
.

Initiate it.

If God wakes you up in the middle of
the night, initiate the conversation.

If God tells you to make a
telephone call to someone,
initiate the conversation.

Non-reachers are the most
powerless humans on the earth.

A non-reacher disqualifies himself.

Praise God…!

What a joy, what a joy to have Dr. Mike Smalley, one of our board members
of The Wisdom Center–one of our decision-makers, that we respect highly.

He’s built over 60 churches around the world. He’s one of our favorite men of
God at The Wisdom Center and our conferences. He’s traveled thousands of miles with Dr. Murdock around the world, including a trip or two ago to Nigeria. Just a marvelous blessing of a man. He’s going to share on “A Surprise Conversation”:

[Dr. Mike Smalley begins sharing]

As we walk in obedience to the
Spirit within us, we will have that
surprise conversation.

God is no respecter of persons.

Every time you hear a testimony of something incredible that God’s done for someone, know that God is willing to do that for you too because He’s no respecter of persons.

Something that happened to
Dr. Smalley several years ago
that was a surprise to him:

While Dr. Smalley was shaving, all of a sudden the Holy Spirit came into the room and began a surprise conversation.

In a matter of seconds, the Holy Spirit shared how Dr. Smalley was overlooking an opportunity in a financial area that the Holy Spirit was providing for him….

He whispered into his heart two small
changes that he could make in his lifestyle….

Dr. Smalley listened to that instruction, and didn’t argue or try to negotiate with Him, but was obedient….

And within 10 days, Dr. Smalley had $17,000 (cash) extra in his hand….

…from one conversation.

If you’re needing today for God to
bring you a special harvest, wrap
your faith around the fact that God,
the Holy Spirit, will talk to you too.

He’ll talk to you about what to do
with your finances, and about your
expectation level.

He’ll not only talk to you about seed sowing, He’ll talk to you about being faith-filled in your expectation for a harvest from the seeds you’ve planted in the past.

God will talk to us…during unexpected moments, like being awakened in the middle of the night….

Many years ago, Dr. Smalley
was in New Zealand….

And the offerings really mattered
at this point in his life. He was
a young evangelist.

Now, he’d never really received good offerings before in New Zealand, but he felt God tell him to go, so he went, and was there for 10 days….

And this particular trip was the first time there that, everywhere he went, there were incredible offerings, and he was about to get back on a plane and head back to America….

And while he was alone in his [condo] room, the Holy Spirit spoke to him, and reminded him of a leader who had mistreated him in that country a year earlier….

And the Holy Spirit nudged him, and said, “I want you to take every penny that you’ve received on this trip”–which, again, was quite a bit!–“And I want you to take it to the home of the man who’d done you wrong a year ago, and I want you to sow it into his life,” and Dr. Smalley “died 10,000 deaths…”. πŸ™‚

He didn’t like this man.

This man actually owed Dr. Smalley
money–a lot of money….

In fact, that was the last man
he wanted to take an offering to,
much less everything he’d just
received over the previous 10 days…!

And so, he wrestled with that for two or three hours, alone in a condo (where Dr. Smalley had been staying in New Zealand, of a couple that–to this day he’s never even met–had just gotten married and were on their honeymoon)

And Dr. Smalley finally said, “Holy Spirit if You’re really working with me to sow everything I’ve just received over these past 10 days into this man that I don’t even like, then wake me up in the middle of the night at an exact time” and he went to sleep, with no one else in the condo there to wake him up. He was staying there all alone….

And he went to sleep, and then in the middle of the night he opened his eyes, rolled over in bed, and looked at the digital clock beside the bed–and it was the exact time he’d requested the Holy Spirit to wake him up.

That was a bittersweet wake-up call, because now Dr. Smalley knew what he needed to do the next day….

So he responded to that Divine surprise moment, and delivered every penny the next day to that man saying, “The Holy Spirit told me to bless you,” and to this day, the man who received the 10-day’s worth of offerings from Dr. Smalley (who was expecting the man to weep and cry and want to be his best friend now) hasn’t even said thank you….

So Dr. Smalley flew back to Dallas–and he didn’t tell anybody about what he’d done, it was just between him and the Lord–but when he got home….

“Heaven exploded over my head” and within days there was an extra $20,000 in extra support that had come into his ministry. And it became, at that time, the largest month he’d ever had in his ministry….

Because he’d honored a surprise conversation from the Holy Spirit.

A few years later, Dr. Smalley was
on a plane, going to Africa to start
a church….

And as he was walking
onto the plane in London…

And, looking two or three rows ahead, he noticed a young African girl (about 25 years old) who was sitting down in the seat next to where Dr. Smalley would be sitting, and as he was putting his luggage in the overhead compartment above their row of seats….

The Holy Spirit–Who’d never done this prior nor since–spoke to him saying, “She is ready to accept Christ”.

It stunned Dr. Smalley because it was so clear, so sudden, so “out of the blue”….

But Dr. Smalley knew His voice, and so he sat down, and after a couple hours he started a conversation with her, told her what he did for a living, and shared with her the Gospel, thanked her for listening, and then went back to reading his book…

About 30 seconds later, she reached her hand across, grabbed Dr. Smalley by the arm and said, “My God, I’m lost! If what you say is true, don’t leave me hanging like this! Tell me how can I meet the Jesus you just talked about…?”….

And at about 36,000 feet, flying above the desert of North Africa, Dr. Smalley led her to the Lord–just like the Holy Spirit had told him prior to taking his seat on that flight.

Dr. Smalley has a number of other incidents where God has shown up in his life in a strong way–with a surprise conversation from the Holy Spirit.

And Dr. Smalley is really believing that by April the 9th, you’re going to have a surprise conversation with the Holy Spirit.

Jesus said, “My sheep know my voice and another they will not follow.”

Or biggest challenge as Christians is not hearing from God,
it’s crucifying our flesh enough to obey what we hear.

Dr. Smalley relates how Dr. Murdock has taught us that many times, even though
God’s instructions to us may seem illogical to our minds, they’re never impossible to follow if we use our faith.

Again, if you and I could just grasp the pleasure it brings God when we use our faith–when we obey His voice.

Think about the scripture in Hebrews that talks about how he who comes to God must just believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.

God said, That without faith it’s impossible to bring Me joy, but if you want to bring me joy, just believe that I exist–and believe that I will reward you, if you seek Me.

There’s going to be a supernatural encounter that you’re going to have with the Spirit of God in a matter of days.

And Dr. Smalley believes it’ll be something that you’ll write in the back of your Bible–something that you’ll tell people about for many years to come.

It’s a surprise conversation with the Holy Spirit.

Dr. Smalley prayed with a young man that within 24 hours he’d have a Divine encounter with the Holy Spirit.

They asked God for a Divine encounter that he’d never forget.

He woke up the next day & the Holy Spirit nudged him in a surprise way while he was getting ready for work and said, “Don’t go to work today. But instead, go and visit your cousin.”

The young man reasoned with the Holy Spirit, “If I’m late for work I’ll get in trouble with my boss.”

The Holy Spirit said, “I’ll take care of your boss. Just go straight to your cousin’s house.”

The young man reasoned back, “How about I just call him?” But he knew the voice of the Holy Spirit, so he drove to the country just outside of Dallas…

He got to his cousin’s house and nobody answered the door. So the young man said, “Well, Lord, he’s not even here. Nobody’s here…”

He went to get back in his car, and the Holy Spirit said, “Check the barn.” So the young man went to the barn….

The young man went into the barn and found his cousin there, who had just finished writing a suicide note, getting ready to wrap a noose around his neck and kill himself. He was less than 60 seconds away from committing suicide.

The young man grabbed his cousin, grabbed the rope, talked to his cousin, and led him to Christ.

He brought him to one of Dr. Smalley’s meetings that night. Both of them gave their testimony publicly, and today the young man, Brad, who had the surprise encounter with the Holy Spirit to go to his cousin’s house, he Pastors a church in Dallas, TX.

When the Holy Spirit surprises you it changes everything:

It changes the way you see your past
It changes the way you see yourself
And it changes your expectation for the future.

Let’s get in agreement that we believe in a surprise conversation in our lives by April 9th.
[end of sharing by Dr. Smalley]

Dr. Murdock is working on finishing his book on “A Surprise Conversation” right now.

It may be that you need to initiate the surprise conversation, like the blind man yelling out to Jesus as He walked by.

Sometimes those around you will try to mute the surprise conversation.

Remember the woman with the issue of blood.

Remember when God started taking to young Samuel, the son of Hannah?

God scheduled that surprise conversation.

Sometimes a surprise conversation is needed to correct somebody who is off-track.

The prodigal son.

He had a negative surprise conversation with his father initially, but later he had a surprise conversation with himself in the pigpen, after the Holy Spirit brought conviction to his conscience.

[And went back to his father, and had another surprise conversation as his return was not only accepted, but celebrated…!]

Sometimes a surprise conversation is the seed for glory and victory in your life.

Jesse looked at his youngest son, David, and told him to bring some food to his brothers who were fighting against the Philistines.

And look what happened with Goliath!

Sometimes God may stir you to face, to confront a Goliath in your life.

Nehemiah had a surprise conversation with the king, who allowed Nehemiah to go and rebuild the walls of Jerusalem & even sponsored his work!

Often, a surprise conversation sets in motion Divine provision.

The Law of Increase

The Law of Increase
Tues 04-02-13
Church by Phone

[Dr. Murdock opened by saying:]
Thank you very much for helping with Nigeria

[prayer]
Father, thank You. And as we focus on the Law of Increase, make us aware–make us aware that it’s our responsibility to multiply. That was Your instruction to Adam & Eve. It’s been Your instruction ever since. You are a God of multiplication. Thank You for teaching us areas where we should increase. And thank You for teaching us the difference between the areas that we should and should not increase in. We’re receivers today. Amen.
Amen.
Praise God.

Our focus tonight is continuing on in the 72 Laws of Life.

[review for first-timers]
There’s a difference between the Person of Jesus and His Principles.
There’s a difference between the Life of God and the Laws of God.
One’s a King, and one’s a Kingdom.

The Person of Jesus relates to our heart.
The Principles He taught relate to our minds.

There’s 72 Laws that’ve really got Dr. Murdock’s attention .
(However, there’s many more that exist)

notes

The first instruction God gave us in the Garden of Eden,
to Adam & Eve, was to multiply.

To replenish.

So the Law of Reproduction, and Increase was there.

Angels cannot multiply.
Angels are not omnipresent (as far as we know)
Angels cannot be everywhere, that’s why there’s “messenger” angels,
very different than the Holy Spirit, Who not only can be a tangible
Presence, but a universal Presence.

Ps 139
“If I make my bed in hell, He’s there…if I sin, He’s there…”

Angels do not reproduce, and we don’t know if they even anticipated the
reproductive process with Adam & Eve, but God gave animals and us–
not angels, demons–but to us, He said to reproduce.

In that instruction, He said, I want you to become more than what you are.

I want you to increase.

In Deuteronomy 1:11, God says to Israel,
I wish you were 1,000 times what you are.
I wish you were 1,000 times multiplied.

Deuteronomy 1:11 (KJV)
(The Lord God of your fathers make you a thousand times so
many more as ye are, and bless you, as He hath promised you!)

God is incredibly pleasures through the Law of Increase.

There’s a great conflict among the body of Christ about the Law of Increase.

Words have tones and colors in our emotional world.

Dr. Murdock loves the word “prosperity” [ and “sizzle” πŸ™‚ ]
while some of our brethren prefer “blessed” or “generous”.

Regardless, this Law of Increase is a wonderful, wonderful thing.

Let’s get comfortable and familiar with the way God thinks.

God is very calibrated, to be sure, and there’s a way He likes to receive
something.

We’re similar.
ex: There’s a way that I like to receive food, and a way that
I don’t like to receive it.
>> Separated food: some of us don’t like the
spinach juice running over into the potatoes, etc.
side note: Dr. Murdock likes colorful (orange, blue, turquoise)
plates–not the expensive china-type plates [gift idea?]
> It’s important in life to know what you like.
> Customize your world, your house, your luggage.

The most comforting thought the poor cultivate is that the rich may be unhappy.

And so you may not be comfortable with the Law of Increase.

But let’s look at what Jesus says here:

John 10:10 (KJV)
I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Paul says in:
2 Corinthians 9:6 (KJV)
But this I say, he which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.

In Job’s world, satan was the one who wanted to shrink what you have,
but the Bible says, that when Job prayed for his friends his own adversity
was turned around and God gave him twice as much as he had before.

In Genesis, Isaac sowed into the land and in the same year he reaped 100-fold.

All throughout the Bible there’s phrases like:
“the liberal soul shall be made fat”

Jesus in
Luke 6:38 (KJV)
“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”

Mark 10:28-30 (KJV)
Then Peter began to say unto him, “Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.” And Jesus answered and said, “Verily I say unto you, there is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s, but he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.”

“…now…”
“…an hundredfold now in this time…”

In this life.

There’s nothing shy about God.

In fact, He even commends those who approach the throne of grace with boldness.

Ps 84:11

And God equates good things with increase.

“the liberal soul shall be made fat”

All through the Bible, poverty is connected with
disobedience, not following a law of God’s.
And blessing is connected with obedience.

Look at Deuteronomy 28.

That’s what Elijah tried to communicate
to the widow of Zarephath in 1 Kings 17,
that her lack of food was not the will of God.

And he gave her an instruction that became the seed for prosperity.

Instructions are seeds for increase.

“If you do this…this is what I will do for you…”

Check out
Isaiah 1:17-19 (KJV)
Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord : though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land.

331 references in the Bible to my personal decision making.

I must make a decision.

The decision I make to obey becomes
the decision I make for prosperity, for increase.

31 Places in Dr Murdock’s book where God wants to increase you.
> some examples where He wants you to increase:
>> love, miracles, knowledge, protection, patience, etc

Whoever’s talking you out of it…
is causing this invisible seething
on the inside of you. It’s like stopping
a dog from barking–it’s unnatural.

It is natural to want to multiply.

It is natural–it is Scriptural–to want to increase.

In the Bible, when a woman had many
children, she was considered blessed.

Remember the Scripture where it talks about
a man’s children are like arrows in his quiver?

Dr. Murdock’s father liked to quote that verse.

More, more, more.

Somewhere along the path, we got
taught that we should not want more.

And we took a Scripture “…whatever state you’re in therewith to be content…”

God put a passion for increase in you.

Now satan distorts it & will try to get
you to go to the wrong source for it.

Or he’ll try & get you to want
something you haven’t qualified for,
and aim to get you unsettled & unrested
in what God has already done for you.

But the Law of Increase is a Divine law on the earth.

(even dogs make love)

There’s an inherent passion for multiplication, for more.

There’s 3 Areas That It’ll Be Good To
Work With On The Law Of Increse:
#1) Accept that increase is a natural, human, Scriptural desire inside of you
>> you can’t fast, pray, anoint it with oil away
#2) If God is your source, you won’t want anything outside of His will
>> If He’s the authority in your life, you won’t be
asking for something that He doesn’t approve of.
>> This passion to pleasure God is rich, it’s glorious, wonderful
#3) Make up your mind that you want to increase in order
>> you can increase in goods, and not increase in order
>> you can increase in clothes, and not increase in order
>> you can increase in your job or have
several businesses, and not be in order

But everyday say, Father I want to increase
>> in my knowledge of You; and in my passion to pleasure You
>> in my passion to obey You
>> in order

note: see the Wisdom World e-Book Reader
> it comes with 100 books already downloaded on it

Accept that God wants you to increase.

Every time you increase, you’ll feel pleasure.
Every time you decrease, you’ll be unhappy.

Increase in productivity.

Where do you want to increase?

God will bring you into balance.

Focus your desire for increase.

Put in front of you what’s good to increase in.

Father, thank You for this time together. We don’t want to be jealous of others, and where they’ve increased because we have so many things to be thankful for. But most of all, we want to increase in order. Increase in our personal life, our world. We want to increase where You receive the glory. Thank You.

A seed is anything that can multiply.

Time is a seed.

Conversation is the seed for understanding.

Listening in the seed for knowledge.

Knowledge is the seed for changes in your life.

Battle is the seed for territory.

Repentance is the seed for _______ http://cut%20out

The Law of Gratitude

The Law of Gratitude
Friday 03-30-13
Church By Phone

There’s no one like Him.

July 13th, 1994:
Dr. Murdock was awakened to the most awesome anointing, a Presence, a person.
He thought maybe his Dad had gone on Home to be with The Lord and he was receiving his father’s mantle that he had asked for in an Elijah-like way.
There was an indescribable desire to pray.
There was joy there too.
Then he thought, No…there wouldn’t be this joy, there’d be a sadness if his father had died…
Maybe it’s someone praying for him, as he always used to ask people that whenever they saw a bag of M&M’s–in a store, or where ever–just to drop to their knees and call out his name in prayer….

Everyone wants a “turning point”, a “burning bush” moment…
Dr. Murdock went downstairs, and to his building next door, into his secret place. There were altars from a Baptist church nearby in that room, and Dr. Murdock prayed and prayed, and went into the most supernatural lifestyle encounter, and he began to cry with joy, “This is what You wanted us to know.

This was what Jesus was talking about when he said,

John 14:16-18 (NKJV)
And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you foreverβ€” the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.

And Dr. Murdock fell in love with the Person of the Holy Spirit.

He is the One who brings us to Jesus.

He is the One who connects us with the Nature of Jesus–the Character of God in us.

He is the One who is almost like the “midwife”
giving birth to the new Nature, the God Nature in us.

In Dr. Murdock’s life , the Holy Spirit is so real–so tangible–
that there’s really no way to describe how impactful He is in his life.

Before this encounter, Dr. Murdock never had written songs to the Holy Spirit,
maybe one (“Spirit of Wisdom, rest on me…teach me, teach me teach me…”).

The most important Person in my life is the Holy Spirit.

He’s easily offended, easily agitated. There’s so much to Him.

He is the Person that decided my assignment on the earth

Jeremiah 1:5 (NKJV)
β€œBefore I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

He’s the One in Acts 8 Who decides whom you’re assigned to.

Acts 8:29, 39 (NKJV)
Then the Spirit said to Philip, β€œGo near and overtake this chariot.”… Now when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught Philip away, so that the eunuch saw him no more; and he went on his way rejoicing.

In Acts 13, the Holy Spirit is the One who knows where you’ll flourish geographically.

Acts 13:2-4 (NKJV)
As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, β€œNow separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” Then, having fasted and prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them away. So, being sent out by the Holy Spirit, they went down to Seleucia, and from there they sailed to Cyprus.

He’s the One who created humans.

Job 33:4 (NKJV)
The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of the Almighty gives me life.

Job 26:13 (NKJV)
By His Spirit He adorned the heavens; His hand pierced the fleeing serpent.

John 15:26 (AMP)
But when the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, Standby) comes, Whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of Truth Who comes (proceeds) from the Father, He [Himself] will testify regarding Me.

Ephesians 1:17 (KJV)
That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him….

Isaiah 11:1-2 (KJV)
And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord….

We’ve been talking about the [72] Laws of Life

Tonight, our focus is:

The Law of Gratitude

notes

The first sin ever committed was unthankfulness.

It’s unthankfulness for what you have that causes you to be lifted up in pride.

Many preachers think that lucifer had that sin when he was in heaven.

Apostle RenΓͺ Terra Nova
Manaus, Amazon (in Northern Brazil)
He has 85,000 in his church.
125,000 ministers and Pastors under his ministry.
A profound man of God.
He has written some outstanding revelation on the Law of Honor.
He shared with Dr. Murdock that lucifer was in
charge of all of the honor that was presented to God.

Some people say there’s 9 different types of angels.

Dr. Murdock was named for Michael the archangel.

Some of the different types of angels:
warring angels, worshipping angels, guardian angels, etc.

Some of them are invisible and angels can and do take on a human form.

Now lucifer became resentful with God and entered
into a war, taking along a third of God’s angels,
and the Bible says God flung lucifer out of Heaven.

And lucifer does not have horns, a red tail or cape.
He does not walk upright like some angry lion.

The Bible says he was “the son of the morning”–
a son that created great pleasure to the Father.

The most poisonous odor on the earth is the odor of disloyalty.
And it comes out of unthankfulness.

Unthankfulness is the seed for disloyalty.

Unthankfulness is the seed for the reprobate, the Absalom spirit, the Judas core.

Every mother and father has watched their children go through the unthankful zone.

Usually it’s the product of immaturity, resentment.

Ingratitude, unthankfulness is so poisonous, it’s hard to even describe.

But the Law of Gratitude is at work on the earth.

Reasons for gratitude vary.

The expressions for gratitude come in many forms.

The show of gratitude is not gratitude.

Words of gratitude are not always proof of gratitude.

> Many have been taught ethical reactions.
> the illusion of protocol, the imagination that someone is thankful.
ex: it’s far more than saying, “Thank you for the meal.”

Gratitude is an expression, it’s not like honor.

Gratitude is the lowest level of honor.

It’s not proof of honor. It’s not a gift.

Look into the ” firstfruits ”
> Is it the first 3% of the tithe, or is it not the tithe, but a 3% offering that goes up to a spiritual father…or…?
> However, all throughout the Word of God, it talks about the first fruits….
> Apostle Terranova in Brazil teaches about this, and several ladies from Brazil give to Dr. Murdock their “firstfruits” offering as a thankful seed.

Thankful people are never forgotten.

Thankful people make life bearable, survivable.

A thankful child can make up for 10 Absaloms in your life.

Gratitude is a seed for intimacy.

Gratitude is a seed for longevity in a relationship.

Unspoken gratitude is not gratitude at all.

Some people are thankful because of something you gave them.

* Remember *
>> The giver is a thousand times more important than the gift that they give to you
>> The difference between the wise and the fool is that the fool builds as
monument to the gift, while the wise builds a monument to the giver in their life

How do we know this?
Because Jesus is far, far more important than Calvary, than the crucifixion.
We’re thankful for the Person on Jesus.

Jesus talks about the woman who put in the two mites,
not her offering–His focus was on the person:

That’s why He forgave the woman who’d been caught in the act of adultery.

20130330-183503.jpg

[Thank You for this image = = > FaithPictures.wordpress.com – click on the image to visit this inspired site ]

That’s why he spoke with the Samaritan woman at the well.

That’s why He went to lunch with Zaccheus.

Gratitude changes everything in a relationship.

Remember when 9 of the 10 lepers didn’t come back.

Any leader will identify the unthankful–the people
that trivialize the seeds that he plants–in his presence.
A leader invests in this examination to avoid misplaced mercy.

What do you do with the unthankful?

3 reactions:
If they’re your child, you can kneel down, “Now say ‘Thank you, Daddy. I’m so thankful for this gift that you’ve given me. ‘ ”
If it’s a child, if it’s the immature, the inexperienced: you train–you disciple the child, the unknowing, the inexperienced.
There are people in your life that are not thankful for anything that you do for them.
You disciple them through example, through training, through behavior modification.
ex: through a spanking
ex: “You know, I let you stay out until 11pm tonight, and you were unthankful: you stayed out til 11:30pm. And because of that you’re not going out again for a month.”
You can discipline, disciple them.

Then there are people whom you must confront: “Are you aware of your ingratitude? Of your unthankfulness?”

Unthankfulness is when you take something that wasn’t owed to you.

Unthankfulness is accepting help that you didn’t qualify for.

Unthankfulness is an odor in every home.

That’s why it’s so important to teach a child to make his bed, clean his room, do the dishes, set the table, empty the trash, wash the car, etc.

If you were paid for an hour’s work today and there were 10 minutes that you were unproductive, you owe that back. You’re an unthankful person.

Trust no man that forgets his debts.
That forgets the source of good in his life.
Who wants what he didn’t qualify to receive.

Remember how Jesus responded to the man with one talent.

The command to increase was the first command given in the Garden.

God says, I’m going to give you something and what
you do with it reflects your level of gratitude back to me.

Productivity leaves a trail of gratitude
.
Non-productivity leaves a trail, an odor of ingratitude behind it.

Where have I been thankful?
Where have I been unthankful?

How do I express thankfulness?
Well, why don’t I learn? I had to learn English. I had to learn to walk.

[review questions from The Law of Communication]
How do I communicate discomfort?
How do I communicate encouragement?
How do I communicate agreement?
How do I communicate disagreement?
How do I communicate a new thought, a new idea?
How do I communicate my difference?

How do I communicate love?

Where am I stupid?

Where am I most stupid?

Who am I willing to learn from?

Who taught me gratitude?

Who taught me thankfulness?

The fruit of making a mistake, of being wrong, is humility.
And the proof of humility is the willingness to apologize and reimburse.

On finances and handling your money:
– you’ve got to learn to handle what you’ve got
– what you do with $10 is what you’ll do with $10 million.
> if you throw away $10, you’ll throw away $10 million.
> if you throw away a dollar, you’ll throw away a hundred
– money’s a magnifier of your character, and your IQ

What I make happen for others God will make happen for me.

My gratitude to God for good treatment
shows in my good treatment of others.

Whatever I have received I am commanded to give, to sow.

Mercy, kindness, open doors, commendations.

What I do for others reveals my gratitude.

Ingratitude is the seed for loss. Everything you’re ungrateful for will exit your life.

read:
>> The Law of Recognition
Dr. Murdock believes this to be the greatest book he’s ever written.

Everything unrecognized is uncelebrated
Uncelebrated things will leave your life.

Sherman Owens, “Whatever you’re most thankful for will increase, multiply in your life. ”

Do an A-Z “Thankful List”
>> write it down

End and open every day with thankfulness.

Because by nature, we’re (typically) not that way.

To improve our environment, not to affirm it.

Unless you’re the “sanguine personality”, who see something good in anything

Labor and toil to enter into thankfulness

Faith comes by hearing
So does doubt
So does unbelief

Make thankful recordings for yourself.

Thank God for the people you love.

Remember faith is voice-activated, along with joy ,etc

There’s not a human in your life that’s worth the energy
of hate, or any energy that takes away from your joy.

There’s people that have spoken into your life words of encouragement.

Start your Thankful List today.

Start an honor journal, and put the pictures and
phone numbers of people who’ve shown you honor.

Thank You for open doors.

Thank You, Father, for our Church By Phone family.

The Law of Focus

The Law of Focus
Thursday 03-28-13
Church By Phone

notes

Focus is where we fail or where succeed.

The first thing God told Adam, was that He warned him about a tree in the Garden that would break his focus.

Some of us say, God: Why did You even tell him?
Maybe he wouldn’t have even found it…?
But the Law of Mercy always warns us.

Paul said, “…this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before…I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:13-14 KJV)

“Mine eye affecteth mine heart…” (Lamentations 3:51 KJV)
“I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes…” (Psalms 101:3 KJV)

“Don’t get off track, either left or right, so as to make sure you get where you’re going…” (Joshua 1:7 MSG)

Nicodemus, only seeing the present world, his attention was turned.

Thousands of years after Lot’s wife died, having turned into a pillar of salt, Jesus said to “Remember Lot’s wife.” (Luke 17:32)

The angel had instructed her not to look back.

The only reason men fail is broken focus.

Where should I be focused?
Focus is more than just a word.
ex: Driving while on a cell phone and/or texting can lead to a car accident.
ex: A mother leaning back into the backseat to do
something with her child, and having a fatal car accident.

We see the damage of broken focus in every part of our society.

Focus is very important.
It’s important to your health.
It’s important to stay safe.
Focus is a necessity.

Focus is an important part of my life equation.

Satan does everything he can to break my focus.

Focus on the Secret Place.

God is not a waste of my time.

Decisions Decide Wealth

107 total decisions that the Holy Spirit told Dr.
Murdock when he spent those 4 months resting,
after his blood-pressure-related excessive bleeding
incident on a plane in the Toronto airport. Dr.
Murdock decided to cancel all preaching
engagements for 4 months and focus on
spending time with the Holy Spirit. It was
during this period that the Holy Spirit told
Dr. Murdock these 3 words: “Decisions
decide wealth
.”

One of these decisions (that will affect my finances, by the way) is:

To make the decision to ignore human flaws and weaknesses and instead to search for and extract the Divine hidden deposit of gold within them.

Meditation and conversation magnify any thought.

If I talk about something, it makes it bigger.
If I think about and imagine something, it gets bigger.

Dr. Murdock has often said, “My mind is the resizing room.”
Where God allows my imagination to resize a good thing or a bad thing.

In marriage, when you’re in courtship, in dating,
you’re so thrilled about their uniqueness, their giftings.

Then when you get married, you want that person
to be responsive to you and they just look at you.

Now when you were dating you loved the fact that they received conversation from you. That they listened well. But then after marriage, you suddenly begin to look at this person and say, Why are you so quiet? I need a reaction, I need a response.

[Review questions from a few nights before]:
How do I communicate discomfort?
How do I communicate caring?
How do I communicate passion?
How do I communicate an idea?
How do I communicate disappointment?

Learning how to communicate –and different people
communicate different ways, and one will cry, the other gets angry.

ex: two different women can be mad about something,
and one woman uses derisive sarcasm, while the other
one cries, and says, “Baby, you’ve hurt me…!”
Two different styles of communication.

Oftentimes, in marriage, your focus gets broken off their difference, their greatness, their uniqueness, every good thing they’ve ever done, and all you see is that thing that turns you off.

Philippians 4:8 (KJV)

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

How will we ever get around to correcting certain things ?
Well, you won’t, but Ecclesiastes says “there’s a time.”
There’s a time to go over many things, and there’s a time to focus on one thing.

Are you able to shut wrong things out, in order to focus on the good things and recapture joy?

Are you able to focus on a problem, and eliminate everything else in your life, and just focus on that problem until answers and questions come together?

Focus is everything in athletics.

In basketball, your opponent may try “trash talking”
to you in a way that’s designed to break your focus.

Focus will be the reason you succeed.
Broken focus will be the reason you fail.

Focus will decide where you excel.
Broken focus will be at the source of pain in your life.

What are some things that qualify for your total focus?
note: total focus, meaning for a season, for a time
ex: you may wish to memorize the Bible, but doing it while you’re driving is not the time to do it
Again, “total focus” not meaning to focus your entire life/day on one little thing. There’s too much to do: taxes, car to vacuum/wash, there’s a banker or doctor thar you’ve got to meet with, etc.

One of the things to qualify your focus is:

– What is my time with the Holy Spirit going to produce for me?
>> I need to have a “Secret Place”, designated to meet with the Holy Spirit, and spend time with him in
> Start with the first 7 minutes of every day, devoted to meet with the Holy Spirit
> If I have a place for my car (the garage) then why wouldn’t I (first) also have a place to meet with the Holy Spirit?
>> When I come into the Presence of the Holy Spirit, come in singing:

Psalms 101:1-2 (NKJV)

I will sing of mercy and justice; to You, O Lord, I will sing praises. I will behave wisely in a perfect way. Oh, when will You come to me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.

> God expects an environment of worship and music
> Music is very important to God
>> I totally focus those moments on worshipping Him, singing to Him, putting everything to the side:

Hebrews 12:1 (NKJV)

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us….

>> Don’t wait for a “free day”, or an hour or a big chunk of time to get into the Presence of the Holy Spirit
> you’ll never do it, if you’re waiting for free time
> Just like writing a book: you’ll never get around to writing a book if you’re waiting for the time to do it before you start
[Just start doing it: the unnecessary will get pushed out, and the necessary will push it’s way into your day–don’t worry about not having enough time]
>> What do you want from those 7 minutes?
>> Focus on hearing His voice, speaking His Word

*** The secret to life is hidden in a successful day, and repeating that day ***

>> The secret to a day is routine
> Knowing when you’re getting up
> Knowing when you’re going to bed
> Knowing what you’ll do first, second, etc
> Routine controls the entire world
> Even people who are creative have a routine
ex: Thomas Edison said, My difference from other men is simple: other men think of many things all day long, but I only think of one thing.
ex: Benjamin Franklin picked out 13 virtues that he wanted to develop. He’d work on 1 for 7 days, do the next one for 7 days
>> These men understood the importance of establishing a routine.

So I establish where I want to be.
I establish what I want to do.
>> That’s the power of focus.

There’s so many times in our Christian life, in our
walk with God, that satan has disrupted our focus.

It doesn’t mean that you have to pray in tongues for 24 hours.
Just set aside time and focus on Him through something
you say, or through something you do.

aside: the purpose of technology is to process information in the shortest amount of time
> to process information to others, and to receive their information in seconds, rather than within hours–that’s why it’s so important
ex: Dr. Murdock uses a voice recorder to play back self-talk to himself–to record his voice and then play it back to him.
>> Dr. Murdock did a talk on order: about how important it is to excel in order; to excel in minutes; to excel in moments; to excel in the present moment

Excel in Excellence

Where Do I want to excel in excellence?

I can use technology (assuming I’m not a liar, and I trust my own voice) to record positive self-talk

I can use it to record audio of things that’ll help me keep my focus

God gave us a mouth to conquer our mind
If you can conquer your mind you can conquer your life

God gave us conversation to control imagination

Our imagination has no track–it’s an open field

There’s a time for haste, and there’s a time to stop, and slow down until you have all the facts & information

You can conquer your mind if you can manage your focus

You must learn how to talk to yourself to protect your focus:
>> Mark Muntain (along with Morris Plotts to Kenya & Tanzania, was one of the greatest missionaries ever, and he was assigned to India, who, though he had a hospital to run with thousands of people depending on him, would often say, “Thank You, Father. We love You. God give me Calcutta–Oh, God give me Calcutta!”

Focus is the way you get things finished, completed.

What is the one thing God’s told me to do with my life?

Ways to Maintain Focus
Review – Keep a master list of To Do’s in one place (Dr. Murdock uses an app called “2Do”). Keeping it all in one place will help you accurately assess your workload.
>> without having your tasks in one place, you may get to the important things last, or never at all
>> Never trust your mind with a task. Your mind is the most tragic place to store a task, a “to do”. Your mind is for creativity, not for memory.
>> Write it down. Writing it down will increase your memory.
> Researchers say, if you write down a task, you’ll increase the chances of doing it by 90 times(!)
>> Schedule an “end” to your tasks. If you don’t schedule an end, you’ll never taste the pleasure of a finisher.
> When you schedule an appointment, don’t say, I’ll meet you @ 2pm.
>> Say, “I’ll meet you from 2pm to 2:20pm.
> There has to be an exit.
ex: God even designed an exit for your body.
ex: Every house needs a back door.
ex: Every car needs an extra door. Why? You need an exit.

Look at all the things you need to do, then prioritize them:
>>What’s A? What’s B? What’s C, D, E, F? And so on.

I choose my focus. Then I protect that focus.

I never do something someone else is capable of doing, if I can get out of it.
I want someone else to do the things that they can do, because they cannot do what I alone can do.
ex: I’d never make a phone call to somebody if someone else can call that person for me.

Distribute tasks to others.

Focus is a learned art, a learned skill.

You focus when you know there is a time for everything.
Ecclesiastes.
There is a time, and there is a place.

Jackie Brown was a wonderful teacher on presentation and personal appearance.
She said, “Ladies, don’t be putting on makeup and fussing over yourself all day. Don’t leave your bedroom until your hair is in place. Get yourself the best that you can get and then walk out and forget about it.”
She said, “Focus on your appearance before you leave your bedroom for the day. Get your mind in order. Get your hair in order. Get your lipstick in order. Get your earrings on, and ask yourself, ‘Am I OK. Am I alright?’ Then when you meet people, you’re mind’s not on yourself. You can focus on them.”

So what are some things that I should focus on?
Well, it’s according to the scenario, the event…
ex: If you’re going out to eat, you focus on enjoying the people.
> You don’t sit there with a pen and pad and write down things you’ve gotta do that day, when you’re talking to everybody around you. You focus. You focus.

And there’s a place for everything.

Dr. Murdock is working right now with “order “.
note: Dr. Murdock loves magazines. “You have billion-dollar corporations selling me their ideas for $5, $7. You can’t beat a magazine for entertainment, information, ideas…. So I don’t like to throw out a magazine until I’ve gone through it and tore out (or take pictures of) all of the [good, striking] ideas. I get my money’s worth…!” πŸ™‚

There is a time and a place for things.
There is a quickening of the Holy Spirit.
Don’t ignore the times and the seasons of God.

Don’t ignore the times and the seasons of God.

Determine whether the focus comes from the Holy Spirit, or from a distraction…?

What would be the result if I give myself totally to this focus?
What would be the possible return?

Ask the Holy Spirit: where do You want me to focus?

What’s the most important thing to your focus?
Your mind, your mind. Talk to yourself about your focus.

Do you know how to talk yourself into a proper focus?

Some things are obvious.

Everybody is clamoring for your focus.

The ability to focus is cultivated.

You develop it as you realize the wisdom of the situation.
Wisdom is the ability to recognize difference–difference in value.

Choose the focus that God has put in front of you to do, what He’s called you to do.

You’ll never lose as friend over choosing your focus, you’ll only lose an imposter.

All thru your life, you’re going to have people try
and change your perception of what matters most.

That may be their focus, but more likely: they have time to criticize, but not time to help.

Others’ understanding of what’s valuable to you is often different than your own.

*** We teach people through what we permit ***

Teach your family to respect your chosen focus.

Then when you’re meeting with your family, abandon
yourself to your family so that they can have all of you.

Qualify people for your focus.

Who do I qualify?

There’s a lot of fascinating people on this earth.

Only the unknown people are the boring people.

God is an uncommon God, and He makes uncommon people.

The reason we lose focus, or don’t tend to our focus is
because we don’t like the burden of turning down others,
of choosing others.

We don’t like the burden of rejecting a task or something good.
We hate turning down a possible opportunity.

We, the partners of Dr. Murdock’s ministry, are going
to receive every month a daily devotional that will be
30, 31 days of something to focus on for that day. πŸ™‚

Don’t even try to please everybody.

Billy Cosby said, “I don’t know the secret of happiness,
but I do know the secret of unhappiness: trying to please everybody.”

Dr. Murdock tries to get 10 significant things done every day.

Health should be one of your prominent focuses.

Nobody else is going to focus on your health.

You’re the only one that knows what should matter most in your life.

– Take time out to visit with the Holy Spirit
– Focus on your health, what you should eat, what you should do [exercise, etc]

For focus I have to be diligent, decisive, militant–I have to be ruthless.

My health has to be my focus because nobody else cares.

I’m very, very replaceable:
> The day that I die, after I’m buried, everybody
is going to go to KFC and be laughing at old jokes at
KFC, having a good time–life is going to go on.

Nobody is going to take care of me.
Nobody is going to watch out for me.

Make my health my focus.

And everybody that’s asking me for money?
They’ve got plenty more people to ask.
And they may be mad at me because I didn’t pay em.

God never intended me to ignore my personal needs for the sake of others.

Don’t ever forget to focus on myself.

The happiest me is the best gift I can give someone else .

Don’t you dare buy something for your kids
when you could’ve bought something for yourself.

Invest something into myself.
Invest time.
What do I love?

The people that live the longest are the people that take care of themselves.

Dr. Murdock’s Dad used to take the longest time to get dressed.
He was meticulous and methodical. He took care of himself.
[He’s 96 years old now].

Don’t you ever get so “super-spiritual” that you
think God is nervous that you haven’t woken up yet today. πŸ˜‰

Don’t ever think that someone else won’t make it because you’re not there.

I need to focus on my joy, focus on my health.
Focus on my life.
Take some time.
Take some time for me.

If Jesus thought we were worth the cross, surely I’m worth a high-priced perfume/cologne.

Surely I can do something for me.

Taking time for me is never wasted time.

In all of your getting, get understanding (about your importance).

If God has all of the hairs on my head numbered,
then I need to live my life, to live a life that’s focused–
focused!–excellence in my own life.

Take care of me before I focus on everybody else.

Take care of yourself.

April the 9th Dr. Murdock takes off to Nigeria.

This coming Monday he’s flying over to South Bend,
Indiana (maybe Little Rock, Arkansas on the way…)

Dr. Murdock is supposed to be back home from Nigeria
on his birthday and then will fly back to (South) Africa.

Dr. Murdock needs help for his trip to Nigeria.

To sow: 866-874-8674
>> or: Button 8 on the website, look for “Church by Phone Seed”

[closing prayer]
Lord, I thank You for this evening. I ask You to give every partner a seed to sow for Nigeria–regardless of the size, let us have a seed to sow into one of the greatest nations on this earth. Some of the greatest people, the greatest Pastors are in Nigeria. Lord we stand together. We are thankful people. You have given us seed to sow, in a nation where people are struggling, we believe in miracles. We believe in harvests. And God will leave no man unrewarded. Thank You, Father. In Jesus’s Name. Amen.
[/end closing prayer]

Questions:

Where should I be focused?

[Review questions from a few nights before]:
How do I communicate discomfort?
How do I communicate caring?
How do I communicate passion?
How do I communicate an idea?
How do I communicate disappointment?

Are you able to shut wrong things out, in order
to focus on the good things and recapture joy?

Are you able to focus on a problem, and eliminate everything
else in your life, and just focus on that problem until answers
and questions come together?

What is my time with the Holy Spirit going to produce for me?

If I have a place for my car (the garage) then why
wouldn’t I (first) also have a place to meet with the Holy Spirit?

Where Do I want to excel in excellence?

What is the one thing God’s told me to do with my life?

What’s A? What’s B? What’s C, D, E, F? And so on.

Determine whether the focus comes from the Holy Spirit, or from a distraction…?

What would be the result if I give myself totally to this focus?
What would be the possible return?

Ask the Holy Spirit: where do You want me to focus?

What’s the most important thing to your focus?

Do you know how to talk yourself into a proper focus?

What do I love?

The Law of Favor

The Law of Favor
Wednesday 03-27-13
Church By Phone

God will leave no man unrewarded.

I count on God because I trust His character.

God knows who to bless, when to extend mercy.

Small keys open bank vaults.

You can go thru life with a crowbar or you can use a key.
Keys are not beautiful, but they’re magical, they’re miraculous in what they open

Father thank You for this family. We’ve pondered on Your Word. We’ve wondered when will we see some of the harvest. We’ve wondered when will our loved ones change. We often wonder how can we impact our children, our mate? We’ve wondered what can we do next? What would You have me do next? Some of us have had great struggles in our minds. How can we accomplish our assignment until we can find trustworthy people? Father, teach us your Laws, teach us Your ways. We’re willing to be healed. We’re willing to be changed. We’re wiling to be focused. Wake up something inside of us, show us favor is not a gamble, a risk. Certainly not fate, not luck. There’s something so supernatural that happens when we do the right thing. Encourage us tonight, in Jesus’s Name. Amen.

notes

Favor is when someone wants to make my life easier.

Favor is when someone wants to use their gifts, their money, their words, to advance me. To get me closer to my goals, my dreams.

Dr. Murdock had one telephone call from Roger McDuff, introducing him to some television people, and Dr. Murdock received 4 years of free television, 4 times a week.

A million dollars(!) worth of free tv time, just because two men liked Dr. Murdock.

In West Memphis, Arkansas: from a little meeting Dr. Murdock had there, and a lady and her husband liked him, and they bought him thousands of dollars worth of clothes.

Favor: Someone deciding to bless me, to open a door for me.

Jimmy Swaggert spoke about Dr. Murdock for two minutes at church in Texas when Dr. Murdock was about 21 years old, and it opened so many doors for him to preach at numerous other churches.

Favor

You don’t get into your future from someone hating you, you get into your future form someone liking you.

Psalms 112:5 (KJV)
“A good man sheweth favour…”

So many people are obsessed with receiving favor, but if I get obsessed with sowing favor, showing favor, demonstrating favor, giving favor–I never sell anything I’m in position to sow–favor will get me in 24 hours what would’ve taken me 10 years to reach.

Dr. Murdock is paying $6,300 to put a young man through a Christian school. The young man’s father is dead. His mother has said he’s a good son. Dr. Murdock was impresses by the young man’s graciousness, his honor, his respectfulness. And the Holy Spirit impressed on Dr. Murdock to show him favor.

“A good man sheweth favour…”

Sowing seed is so beyond writing a check, or giving someone a 20-dollar bill.

I am a walking seed.

My words either advance
others or stop them.

Something I’m doing is either helping someone succeed or stopping them from succeeding.

A trustworthy, a righteous, an honorable…
“A good man sheweth[/soweth] favour…”

A good man sows favor.

A good man will help somebody succeed.

A good man will help somebody get through a problem.

A good man will cover somebody’s iniquity so that they can get back in the fellowship.

God never humiliated the weak.

He humiliated the proud, and the rebel.

God never humiliated the woman who had been caught in the act of adultery.

He never humiliated Zaccheus.

He only humiliated the Pharisees who thought they were better than everyone else.

Where am I sowing favor?

Where am I opening a door?

Where am I helping someone succeed?

Whose groceries did I buy this week?

Whose life did I make easier?

Favor is the most remarkable, incredible seed that I can sow someone.

Favor to someone going through a hard place.

Where ever I have sowed favor, there will be a hundredfold return.

History can document the power of sowing favor.

Who should I sow favor (in)to?
The elderly, of course.
The handicapped.

Nobody’s born equal.
We’re not equal in IQ, we’re not equal in giftings.

Where ever I can help somebody up.

There’s a song:
“If I could help somebody, as I walk along…if I could help somebody with a word or a song…if I could help somebody who’s going wrong…then my living shall not be in vain…”

“A good man sheweth favour…”

Am I good?

If I don’t show favor, I must be evil.

But what about me receiving favor?
I need somebody to show me favor too…!

Well, the seed must occur before the harvest.

Proverbs 11:27 (KJV)
He that diligently seeketh good procureth favour….

Do you think it was just happenstance, did God just flip a coin and say, “I think I’ll show Joseph favor from Pharaoh.” ?

Do you think it was just an accident that Ruth found favor with Boaz?
>> see Ruth 2:11-13

Was it that Rebecca just happened at the well and chanced into meeting Eleazar and lucked into becoming the wealth manager for Abraham’s son Isaac?

If I want good things to happen to others, if I’m doing the right thing for others, I will attract, procure favor.

Attitude, appearance, achievement: those are the 3 miraculous words that unlock the world of favor.

Robert Hath, President of the largest employment agency in the US, wrote a book, saying 98% of people are hired based on appearance.
>> then he wrote another, more recent book saying, “I was wrong: 100% of the people who are hired, are hired based on their personal appearance.”

The Book of Esther, which does not even mention the Name of God, said, When the king saw Esther, he had favor toward her.

What schedules seasons?
Favor.

Favor ends tragedies.
Favor ends heartache.

Favor stops the season of loss, and launches the season of multiplication.

So how do I get favor, Mike? How do I get favor? I’ve prayed for favor I–

He didn’t say pray for favor.

Now, you can pray for favor, especially praying, “Lord, show me who I should show favor to…”

Don’t worry about a harvest as much as you worry about your seeds.
>> Take care of planting, sowing, favor – and let God handle the harvest of favor

If I take care of my seed-sowing, God will take care of my harvest growth.

“He that diligently seeketh good [procureth favor]”

Dr. Murdock has given away computers, cars, houses…why?

Seeking somebody’s good.

Dr. Murdock’s theme is Ephesians 6:8
>> What I make happen for others, God will make happen for me

Who’s good did I seek, did I pursue today?
Who’s mind did I settle at peace?

Who did I show honor to?
How did I show honor today?

Where did I show dishonor today?
Where did I show disrespect?

I may’ve showed disrespect and didn’t even know I did, but God did.

God did.

“He that diligently…”
>> diligence is continuous, relentless effort
“…seeketh good…”
>> good for others–what can I do for you?
“…procureth favor”

What does that mean?
So, if I try and sow favor to others, some of it will come back to me?

Was the sowing and reaping Scripture just for evil men?

Well, what do you think?

Dr. Murdock has often referenced his experience in Wilmington, Delaware:
> a friend with 5-6 children called Dr. Murdock crying, saying his kids were freezing, he had nothing, and he asked Dr. Murdock if he could possibly use his influence at the time to open some Pastoral doors for this man to preach.
> Dr. Murdock hand-wrote 27 letters that afternoon, sitting in a little Sunday school class, sitting in a little children’s church seat, and he was in that room, and wrote 27 letters.
> the man received 27 invitations
>> And from that day forward, every nation on
earth has been opened in Dr. Murdock’s life
>> And now, Dr. Murdock can’t even accept 5% of the open doors that come to him

And so God has said, if I will literally seek good for other people, I would procure favor

Let’s look at Proverbs 12:2 (NKJV):
“A good man obtains favor from the Lord…”

The proof of a good man is the good he does for others.

The proof of a good man is not that he carries a
Bible under his arm, or that he prays in tongues,
or that he wears a tie, or that he’s shy and timid

It’s in the favor that he shows to others.

A good man shows favor, he seeks good for other people.
>> And “he obtains favor from the Lord”

If a man is seeking good for others, God reacts and rewards that man accordingly.

Favor can get you a car in 24 hours.
Favor can get you a debt-free house in 24 hours.
Favor can get you open doors.
Favor can get you–your bill at the hospital, $18,000–favor can get that paid.

Favor, favor, favor, favor…!

Dr. Murdock had a Pastor friend from Houston, who feel to the floor in the bathroom at the Wisdom Center, during their World Wisdom Conference. They were rushing him to the hospital and they said, “He has no insurance…”. Dr. Murdock said, “I’ll take care of his emergency-room expenses. Make sure he’s alright. I’ve known him for 40 years.”

The bill was $20,000 (they cut it down from $28,000–one night in the ER…).

Yet, look at Dr. Murdock today: 67 years old. Not in a hospital. He can walk. He can talk. He’s in good health. Look at what God has done for him…!

The greatest gifts cannot be measured.

What causes people to be brought into favor?

One of the things that we know from the Book of Daniel is that obedience to God, an effort to please God, causes God to get involved in the equation.

Daniel wanted so much to please God that he told the king, It’s not in my religion to eat the food that you want me to eat. Give me a 10-day trial. And if I don’t produce–if I’m not stronger than all the other men, I’ll follow your law, but…meanwhile, gimme a chance to prove my difference.

The Bible says in…
Daniel 1:9 (NKJV)
Now God had brought Daniel into the favor…

Favor is a currency.
It’s an invisible territorial boundary.
Favor is not a moment.
Favor is a territory you enter.
It’s a zone.

Naomi knew that. That’s why she told Ruth, This man, with all this money, likes you, baby. He likes you! Baby, don’t go to somebody else. Stay around his house. Stay in the field with the servants. Establish credibility with those he trusts.

“Now God had brought Daniel into the favor…”

It wasn’t a moment. This wasn’t a day.

Who’s the most likely person to give you a gift?
Someone who’s already given you one.

“…and tender love with the prince of the eunuchs.” (Daniel 1:9 KJV)

You don’t need everybody liking you!
Just the right person liking you!
The decison-maker liking you.

When Dr. Murdock likes somebody, everything good happens.
When he likes somebody, he can’t do enough good for them.
There’s nothing he won’t do for somebody he likes.

God is in the favor equation.

God brings you out of the captivity zone, and brings you into the favor zone.

Bishop Jerry Grillo, from the Favor Center, in Hickory, North Carolina calls it
the FOG zone. F-O-G = Favor Of God

Dr. Murdock’s Pastor friend, from Rio de Janeiro, that he preaches so much for, on the door, when you go to walk into his huge Gulfstream Jet, it says, “Favor Of God”.

If God likes you, nobody else matters.

Favor can increase.

Favor can start off as a small seed, and end up to be huge.

Luke 2:52 (KJV)
And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.

Right words create favor.
Words that heal.
Words that give hope.
Words that encourage.
Words that are truthful.

Proverbs 24:26 (KJV)
Every man shall kiss his lips that giveth a right answer.

Favor is pursued.
The favor of great men is pursued.

Proverbs 19:6 (KJV)
Many will intreat the favour of the prince: and every man is a friend to him that giveth gifts.

That means the whole world–millions. Millions understand the power of favor.

The power of favor is not stuck in the corner.

Dr. Murdock was heading to the house of his friend and was with Bishop Jerry Grillo and had just spoken with Pastor David Cirillo, at the Inspiration Ministry. And Bishop Grillo asked him if he’d remembered many years before, when Dr. Murdock was preaching, and turned around and asked him if he’d ever been to the Holy Land. He said he had not, and Dr. Murdock said, “I’ll pay your way to the Holy Land.”

A lifetime dream was achieved in a single moment.
Something he had wanted in years was achieved in a moment.

In a moment. In a moment…

In a moment.

In a moment!

Attitude: the Bible says that Daniel had an excellent spirit [see Proverbs 17:27 (KJV) ] that attracted achievers.

Dr. Rob Thompson, who Pastors in Chicago–one of the finest humans that Dr. Murdock has ever met–he often quotes that verse that says, “A man that is diligent will not stand before common men, but he’ll stand before great men.”

Proverbs 14:35 (KJV)
The king’s favour is toward a wise servant…

If a man has the spirit of a servant, he’ll unleash a river of favor from kings and leaders.

The king’s favour is toward a wise servant…

Proverbs 13:15 (KJV)
Good understanding giveth favour…

He that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

Withhold not good from them, when it’s in the power of your hand to do so…

[prayer]
…Empty me out. Empty me out, Lord. Empty me out. Father, give me remarkable insight in identifying my warehouse inventory. You’ve placed inside of me, irreplaceable giftings. You’ve stored in me some of Your highest thoughts. Father, I’m a walking warehouse of seeds. You have given me the revelation of sowing, sowing, sowing–sowing! Looking for good soil. Looking for right soil. Looking for productive soil. And You’ve given me the reassurance, and the persuasion, that no man will go unrewarded by You. Nobody. Nobody. If You counted the hairs on our head–if every hair on our head has a number, do we think for one second that You have not photographed the favor we have planted into others? Father, let every husband–let every husband, let every husband(!) be gripped with a passion to languish favor into his home, on his wife, on his children. Let every son, let every daughter(!) embrace, embrace this. Father, if You have photographed the simple cup of water planted into the life of a Prophet, you said he will receive a Prophet’s reward. The anointing we sow into is the anointing that multiplies in our life. And I believe it. I believe it. I believe it. Lord, I’ve decide to be a good experience, a righteous experience. I’ve decided to be Your seed into the earth. I pray for every member of the Church By Phone family. Oh, God–oh, God! May we never be so selfish that all we think about is relieving favor. We will master the seed-sower’s mentality. We will develop the nature of a seed-sower of favor. And where ever we can do good, we will do it. We will do it. In Jesus’s Name…. Father, our future starts one person from now. Our future begins one person from now. There is somebody, that when we show them favor, the heavens are going to open. We don’t even know why, but the heavens will open. In Jesus’s Name.

Dr. Murdock fasted a meal today [Wed] for a man that he’d never met–a man in Washington DC. He’s never even had a conversation with him. But this man has shown such favor to Dr. Murdock and his ministry. One of the things that he asked the Holy Spirit to do for this man and his business was to expose every financial leak in his world. And to remove every deceptive voice.

If wrong people are removed from your world, right people will explode in your life.
You’ve got to leave Egypt before you taste the grapes of Canaan.
A wrong person has to be exposed before you can taste the victory of a right person.
God has to silence the voice of somebody that’s bringing the odor of disloyalty into your life.

A lady named Gail today [Wed]–about a month and half ago the letter was given to one of Dr. Mike’s assistants, and it was forgotten to give it to him. The letter contained a very generous seed. This lady has every right to expect a reward from God, a supernatural harvest for her seed. And she didn’t even know that Dr. Murdock doesn’t receive pay from the Wisdom Center.

Dr. Murdock lives by his seed–he doesn’t receive a penny from the tithes and offerings of the Wisdom Center.

Someday he’ll tell us how, and how much God has blessed him, and kept him.

Does it matter where you sow?
You bet your life.

Remember David and Jonathan?
Long after Jonathan was dead–the favor flows from generation, to generation to generation.

Bob Gass bought a relative of Dr. Murdock’s a Cadillac just because he was ” kin”.

Do you have any idea, when God likes you everybody else who likes you get blessed?

When I love somebody God loves, I get the blessing!

Jesus, our Jesus, our Elder said, If I take the burden off of a man of God, I get that Prophet’s, that man of God ‘s reward.

Three things:

1) Sow, sow, sow, sow, sow, sow, sow favor

2) Sow it into right people, good people, righteous people

3) Expect God to notice and unleash the windows of Heaven in your life.

2013 has been the most amazing year so far.

Thankful people become happy people.

The thankful will never stay broke.

The thankful will walk in Divine favor.

Praise God!

You won’t be able to sow, to give, until you’ve mastered the art of receiving.

Jesus said, You have freely received and now freely give.

Whatever you’ve received, sow. Lavish it upon others.
