And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Romans 12:2)


A major key to marketplace success God’s way, no matter the mountain of influence, is that you have to see it first. God never expected us to do anything or go anyplace without first seeing it. Seeing is why planning and execution are so important in any business. If you don’t know where you are going and don’t have the right road map to get there, you could end up in California when you wanted to go to Mississippi. You can’t go where you can’t see. Biblical meditation is how we renew our minds to see what God sees. 

Many people think God made the world out of nothing. Not true! God did not create the world from nothing. He created it with something you cannot see with your physical eyes. That something or substance is called faith, and we are designed to create on this earth the same way. God made the earth and everything in it out of what He saw in the invisible, or eternal, realm. Then He spoke what He saw into existence: “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light” (Genesis 1:3). We are not going to bring forth anything from God in science, education, business, or our families that we have not seen or said by faith.

When you see what’s in the invisible by faith, you don’t have to stumble in the dark for solutions. The fact that you can’t see something with your natural eyes doesn’t mean that it’s not there or doesn’t exist. When our spiritual eyes are open, we can see our provision and our protection.


Dear God, I renew my mind according to Your Word and not the ways of the world. I thank You that I “see” your plans and purposes for my life, family and business, and by faith I bring forth what You show me in the invisible realm. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
