Here is the outline for Rich Thoughts TV. Join us tonight at 6 PM EST.
Proverbs 21:20 TLB
“The wise man saves for the future, but the foolish man spends whatever he gets.”
2 Chronicles 24:20 NLT
“This is what God says: Why do you disobey the Lord’s commands and keep yourselves from prospering?”

“You will become slaves to your enemies because of your failure to praise God for all that he has given you. . .”
1. Our Heavenly Father is not a God of limitations.
2 Peter 1:5 AMPC
“For this very reason, adding your diligence [to the divine promises], employ every effort in exercising your faith to develop virtue (excellence, resolution, Christian energy), and in [exercising] virtue [develop] knowledge (intelligence).”
Mark 4:20 MSG
"But the seed planted in the good earth represents those who hear the Word, embrace it, and produce a harvest beyond their wildest dreams."
2. Nothing is impossible to you as a believer.
Mark 9:23 GWT
“Jesus said to him, “As far as possibilities go, everything is possible for the person who believes.”
Mark 9:23 MSG
“Jesus said, "If? There are no 'ifs' among believers. Anything can happen."

“For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment.”
Matthew 17:20 AMPC
“. . . For truly I say to you, if you have faith [that is living] like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to yonder place, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.”
3. You have the mind of Christ.
Hosea 4:6 KJV
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.”
Romans 12:2 NLT
“… Let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think….”
4. Your confession changes your direction.
First, your confession should be based on your speaking right words.
“Let no foul or polluting language, nor evil word nor unwholesome or worthless talk [ever] come out of your mouth, but only such [speech] as is good and beneficial to the spiritual progress of others, as is fitting to the need and the occasion, that it may be a blessing and give grace (God's favor) to those who hear it.” Ephesians 4:29 AMPC
Second, you can change where you are in life by what comes out of your mouth.
“God can bless you with everything you need, and you will always have more than enough to do all kinds of good things for others.” 2 Corinthians 9:8 CEV
“Heavenly Father, I praise you that my possibilities are unlimited. . .I have more than enough. . .I have everything I need to do good things for others. . . and rejoice in your plans for me. Every day, help me to focus on You and Your personal promises for my success in the Word of God. I rejoice that soon I will be functioning in the end-time office of the giver. Hallelujah. Amen.”
Third, make your confession for at least twenty-one days.
Fourth, circumstances should not never alter your confession but your confession will eventually alter your circumstances.
“And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh,… bought him from the Ishmaelites…. But the Lord was with Joseph, and he [though a slave] was a successfuland prosperous man….” Genesis 39:1-2 AMPC
“Abraham never wavered in believing God’s promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this he brought glory to God. He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises.” Romans 4:20-22 NLT
Fifth, speak your confession every day.
“In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation." Psalm 5:3 NIV
5. Excuses restrict your ability to change your circumstances.
Isaiah 45:8 AMPC
“Let fall in showers, you heavens, from above, and let the skies rain down righteousness [the pure, spiritual, heaven-born possibilities that have their foundation in the holy being of God]; let the earth open, and let them [skies and earth] sprout forth salvation, and let righteousness germinate and spring up [as plants do] together; I the Lord have created it.”
“Heavenly Father, open my eyes that I might see and act on every heaven-born possibility you set before me today. Help me to recognize divine connections. . .take advantage of supernatural opportunities and maximize the possibilities of my day. I rejoice that you will lead me in the way that I should go and that you have your eyes on me. Hallelujah!! Amen.”
6. God is no respecter of persons.
Acts 10:34 KJV
“Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons.”
Acts 10:34 NIV
“Then Peter began to speak: "I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism.”
Acts 10:34 MSG
“Peter fairly exploded with his good news: "It's God's own truth, nothing could be plainer: God plays no favorites! It makes no difference who you are or where you're from—if you want God and are ready to do as he says, the door is open.”
7. What you sow you reap.
Proverbs 18:21 MSG
“Words kill, words give life; they're either poison or fruit—you choose.”
Proverbs 13:3 NLT
“Those who control their tongue will have a long life; opening your mouth can ruin everything.”
Matthew 12:34 AMPC
“You offspring of vipers! How can you speak good things when you are evil (wicked)? For out of the fullness (the overflow, the superabundance) of the heart the mouth speaks.”
Matthew 12:34-37 MSG
“How do you suppose what you say is worth anything when you are so foul-minded? It's your heart, not the dictionary, that gives meaning to your words. A good person produces good deeds and words season after season. An evil person is a blight on the orchard. Let me tell you something: Every one of these careless words is going to come back to haunt you. There will be a time of Reckoning. Words are powerful; take them seriously. Words can be your salvation. Words can also be your damnation."
Galatians 6:7 AMPC
“Do not be deceived and deluded and misled; God will not allow Himself to be sneered at (scorned, disdained, or mocked by mere pretensions or professions, or by His precepts being set aside.) [He inevitably deludes himself who attempts to delude God.] For whatever a man sows, that and that only is what he will reap.”
Isaiah 26:3 NLT
“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!”
