Jesus Marketing Plan!

Jesus marketing plan

Matt 8:1 ¶ When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him.

As I work in ministry, how tempting it is to start networking, and knocking on doors to get speaking engagements, because truly, the Word of God burns within me, like a fire shut up in my bones!

Yet, instead, I have chosen Jesus method of public ministry, spending the needed hours quietly with my Father, praying, listening, and worshipping, so that I allow Him to open doors for my gift…He will do this for any of us, if we come away, come up the mountain, and spend the time needed in prayer.

Joshua 6:27 So the Lord was with Joshua, and his fame spread throughout the land.

He will be with you, in your ministry, your business, your promotion, if you are seeking Him first, and His leading, timing, and way of doing things.

After prayer and fasting, and clear miracles from heaven we read in  Luke 4:14 “And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.”

Again we see our heavenly Father promoting Jesus here several verses later:

Luke 4:37 And the fame of him went out into every place of the country round about.

When Jesus walked with our heavenly Father on the earth, even the king knew about it:

Matthew 14:1 At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus


When we walk with our Father, in spirit-led obedience, there is an honor that comes from heaven, that will bring promotion that no amount of networking can produce.

The ways of the kingdom, are often contrary to the ways of the world:

John 12: 25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.

26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honor.


Walking correctly with heaven is supernatural!
Needs will be met, miracles will be wrought, and people will seek you out for a Word from heaven.
I believe this works not only in ministry, but also in business, in our day to day jobs. God sets up divine appointments, and opportunities for promotion, miracles, and people who need ministry, for it is written: Eph 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Truly, we do have friends in high places, the highest – the throne of God Almighty, maker of heaven and earth.
You Have Friends In High Places!
Let us live to please Him, and He will promote us His way, in His timing.
Let’s pray:
‘Father, I thank you for surrounding me with your favor, as with a shield. Thank you for grace, and intimacy with you today. I believe that you are opening doors for me, granting me favor, promotion, and fame, Your way. I choose to believe you are making a way for me, according to your perfect will, in Your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen!’

The Friendly Counsel of God – We have friends in High Places!

Jesus over earth


The Friendly Counsel of God!

You know, in business you meet some really great people sometimes, people of honor, integrity, excellence, and great wisdom from life experience. Along the way, I made decisions to try and include these folks in my life as mentors, respecting their time, yet enjoying the privilege of being able to simply pick up the cell phone and call them for counsel, when I had a decision to make. We are friends, and because they care about me, and want me to succeed, they give me friendly, wise counsel, so I can prosper.

Well, there is One, wiser, richer, more seasoned and powerful than all of them combined, that is God, Creator of Heaven and earth, seated upon the throne, with Jesus at His right hand. Truly, if we know Jesus, we have influential friends in high places, and we are called to walk with them, seated with Christ in heavenly places, as royalty in the courts of our heavenly King!

Today, as I read Job 29:4

‘Just as I was in the days of my youth, when ‘THE FRIENDLY COUNSEL OF GOD WAS OVER MY TENT.’

I am grateful for my wealthy friends, but they are never the source of my wealth. Nope, I endeavour to live a life of holiness and obedience that ever places a smile on the face of Jesus. Living in such a way, that He might see comfort and reward for His great sufferings, doing what I can to encourage Him, as He too sees the horror, tragedy, and mess of this pain wracked earth.

He knows, He loves, He weeps, then He acts, sometimes with brutal intensity in His government, to stop evil, punish predatory people, and to protect and bless His family in the earth.

If I take the time to get to know Him, He gives me wonderful, friendly counsel…

He did it again tonight, at a moment when my emotions threatened to cause me to make some brutal decisions, decisions that would have been wrong for my life. He came, He spoke, He brought comfort, He again revealed His glory, and showed me that I was placing a smile upon His face.

I don’t know what you are going through today, but if you love Jesus, He will go through it with you, and will never leave you in the fight, and if you ask Him, He will always make a way, even where there appears to be no way.

Is it not written?

1 Corinthians 10:13Amplified Bible (AMP)

13 No temptation [regardless of its source] has overtaken or enticed you that is not common to human experience [nor is any temptation unusual or beyond human resistance]; but God is faithful [to His word—He is compassionate and trustworthy], and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability [to resist], but along with the temptation He [has in the past and is now and] will [always] provide the way out as well, so that you will be able to endure it [without yielding, and will overcome temptation with joy].

Listen, as He speaks to your heart today

John 10:27(NIV)

27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.

I am totally committed to fully obeying Him alone, no matter what people do, or don’t do to me or for me.


Let’s pray:

‘Father, I come into Your courts today, with thanksgiving, praise, and worship determined to honor You and who You are to me. Thank you for the privilege of Your counsel, comfort, wealth, provision, and direction today. May I live today, to put a smile on Your face Lord Jesus. Amen’
