One of my journals is a "Kingdom Download" journal, a place where I record impressions, words and thoughts I sense heaven drops upon me.
I write them down, pray and meditate over them, and transfer the most impactful ones to a digital list I refer to often. What some might call "pithy" statements, I enjoy seeing God's mind and heart flow through what I sense as His continuing communion with me.
Just as I do in my free resource, "31 Power Prayers to Prosper Your Business," this week ,I was led to share a few of these kingdom downloads with you.
I pray you find them both inspirational and revelational.

- We need to shift from living up to our potential to embracing His promises for our lives.
- We fight a supernatural war played out in the natural. We must therefore wage our marketplace war in the real battlefield with our supernatural weapons (armor, prayer language, spiritual gifts and so forth).
- The wisdom of the world is pitiful compared to the wisdom of God.
- You must see it (supernatural vision) before you receive it (natural manifestation).
- Do not look for a reason to do something; look for a witness.
- First-century apostles were militants with one assignment: world dominion (influence/impact). Should we settle for less?
- You do not need to know the ultimate address as long as you are moving forward.
- Kings do not beg; they decree! Speak those things that are not in your business as if they are.
- Focus on the few, then follow through.
- Stay in your marketplace (destiny) lane—there is no traffic there.
- It's not about doing more. It's about your next move.
- The defeated enemy can never stop your work for the Lord—he can only delay it.
- Marketplace warriors filled with Holy Spirit power are environment/atmosphere shifters. When we walk into a room, shift happens!
- As I'm learning, I'm journaling.
- God does not have back-up plans. So, commune with Him to reveal His plan for you and then violently execute it.
- My business is not designed for me to force results, but for Him to bless results.
- We must shift our "success" focus from traditional financial Return on Investment (ROI) to Eternal Return on Investment (EROI).
- Marketplace warriors do not deny the reality or size of a problem. Rather, they declare the power and size of God in the face of the problem.
- When God restores, He always multiplies. When the defeated enemy seems to be winning, focus on your forthcoming bounty.
- We cannot claim enemy territory (earthly marketplace kingdom) unless we have conquered it, and we cannot conquer it unless we have invaded it. Embrace your calling of a supernatural "space invader" and reclaim your marketplace for His kingdom.
