5 Quality Decisions To Move Your Life Forward

5 Quality Decisions To Move Your Life Forward

Decision-making is an essential part of moving through every day of our lives, because our lives are series of choices. And the decisions we make determine our future. They affect whether we grow in our prosperity or delay what God wants for us to have—spiritually, mentally, emotionally, relationally, physically, financially and every other way. How critical it is, then, that we learn to make the right decisions, or what Brother Copeland calls “quality decisions,” because those are the ones that will move our lives forward.

Once, when Brother Copeland was fasting in regard to his weight, as he was praying and talking to the Lord about it, he heard God speak up on the inside saying, The decision is yours. I can’t make the decision for you. I provide the material, but the decision is yours.

It was then that Brother Copeland realized not only how important our decisions are, but also that God has given us the power to make the best decisions.

If you haven’t always made the best decisions, or you want to start making even better ones, consider these 5 Quality Decisions To Move Your Life Forward, and implement them into your decision-making, starting today.

1. Make Quality Decisions to Get Your Spiritual Life in Shape

“Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.” –(Daniel 6:3, KJV)

The Bible tells us that Daniel had an excellent spirit, so much so the king placed him in a position of “president,” along with two others, to reside over 120 princes throughout the kingdom. Such a promotion made the other presidents and princes attempt to find fault with Daniel, but the Word tells us, “They could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him” (Daniel 6:4, KJV). So then, they conspired to pass a law stating that no one could ask a petition of God or man for 30 days, and if they did, they would be thrown into the lions’ den. The good news of this story is that because Daniel didn’t let go of his excellent spirit, he wasn’t harmed.

Because Daniel refused to compromise, he maintained an excellent spirit. In the Aramaic and the Hebrew, the root meanings of excellence lend to the idea of abundance and preeminence. When you put the meanings together, the implication is that an excellence spirit is where the Spirit of God is preeminent in a person’s life.

Does the Spirit of God have preeminence in your life? Do you give Him first place? Do you refuse to compromise in your decision-making? Make a quality decision today to get or keep your spiritual life in shape so you, too, can have an excellent spirit.

2. Make Quality Decisions To Choose THE BLESSING

“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.” –(Deuteronomy 30:19, KJV)

God’s going to get you for that! Most of us have said that kind of thing jokingly for years. We’ve somehow believed that God slaps us down with pain and punishment every time we sin. But that’s just not true. There are deadly wages for sin, but God is not the one who’s doling them out.

You see, the Bible tells us there’s been a curse in effect for thousands of years. And the devil is the cause of it, not the Lord God. God gave warning of it in Deuteronomy 30:19. After describing in detail THE BLESSINGS that fall upon those who followed God and the terrible suffering that would befall those who separated themselves from Him, He said, “I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.”

Think of it this way. Curseville is out there. God warned us about it and urged us not to travel the road that leads there. But He has given us freedom, and He’ll allow us to choose our own way. If we get on the road to Curseville and don’t get off of it, we’re going to wind up there. Is that because God sent us there? No! He urged us to not go.

The vital thing to realize is this: At any point of the journey—whether you’re on the road to Curseville or living right in the middle of it—God will save you from it. He’ll take you out of there and deliver you. He’ll deliver you from diseases, addictions or anything else that’s been holding you captive.

Today if you find yourself on the wrong road and see destruction ahead, you can make a quality decision, to choose THE BLESSING. Just repent and get on the right road. Just commit your way to Jesus, and He’ll deliver you from whatever may be holding you captive. You can begin by praying, “Lord Jesus, I’ve chosen the wrong road and right now I ask You to forgive me. Today I choose life by choosing Your way. Please deliver me from this bondage and fill me with Your Holy Spirit to make quality decisions. Thank You, Lord!”

Remember this: No matter what you’ve done, God doesn’t want to get you for it, He wants to forgive you of it. He doesn’t want to slap you down; He wants to save you and lift you up. Trust Him and let Him put you on the road of life today!

3. Make Quality Decisions To Prosper Your Soul

“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” –(3 John 2, KJV)

One of the easiest traps to fall into in this life is to use the idea of God being sovereign as a way of excusing ourselves from making the decisions God wants us to make. God is sovereign, but He has empowered us to make decisions. He has given us His authority in this earthly realm (Matthew 28:18-20). He has assigned it to us to bring heaven and earth together in this realm (Matthew 6:9-13).

While it’s good and right to want and pray for the will of God to be done, God has put into our hands the ability to do everything His Word tells us to do. Therefore, it’s incumbent upon us to get our souls in shape. Third John 2 tells us that’s our souls prospering is the will of God, but verse 11 tells us it’s our job—our quality decisions—to get our souls in shape and then maintain them.

“Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God” (KJV).

Our souls are defined as our minds, our wills and our emotions. What are you doing to prosper each of these areas of your life?

For example, do you want to prosper your mind? Then read Philippians 4:8 and follow its instructions: “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” (KJV).

In the same way you can take Philippians 4:8 to heart, you can find verses to help you submit your will to God and manage your emotions. That’s prospering your soul.

4. Make Quality Decisions for Your Health

“Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.” –(1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

It is vitally important that we get into agreement with God in every area of our lives and align ourselves with His Word. This is true regarding every facet of our lives, including obedience to God and taking care of our health.

When Brother Copeland was fasting in regard to his weight, he decided to look up every verse in the Bible that spoke of gluttony (overeating). What he found was that the word drunkard was in every one of those verses. At that time God had already delivered Brother Copeland from smoking and from drinking, and he discussed that with the Lord. Naturally, he asked God, “How are You going to deliver me from food?” 

God answered him saying, I didn’t deliver you from breathing; I delivered you from breathing smoke. I didn’t deliver you from drinking; I delivered you from drinking a particular substance. Now, what you going to do about all that sugar in those soft drinks?

Brother Copeland’s true deliverance was in the power God had already given him to make the best quality decisions for his health.

Is there some quality decisions God wants you to make regarding your health? Is it time to change your eating habits? Is it time to take up walking or biking or some other way to exercise? What is God prompting you to do to take better care of and honor Him with your body?

5. Make Quality Decisions To Get Out of Debt

“Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.”
 –(Romans 13:8, KJV)

If you’re drowning in debt, or just keep using it to get by, then it’s time to consider making quality decisions to get out of debt, once and for all. Now, before you start thinking it’s impossible, accept the fact that it may be—if you attempt to do it all on your own.

The best way to get out of debit is to get God involved in your finances; to invite Him in to do what only He can do. Additionally, to get God involved in your money is to start sowing and sharing some of what you do have, so He can give you what you don’t have.

Malachi 3:10 is a promise: “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it” (KJV).

If we’ll give God our tithe, then He promises to open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing, to the point there’s not room enough to receive it. In other words, He’ll do the supernatural for you. He’ll do the impossible for you, because what’s impossible with man is always possible with God (Luke 18:27).

What’s more, he goes on to promise us even more: “And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the Lord of hosts” (Malachi 3:11-12, KJV).

And those are just the promises on tithing! God has promised much to those who give. Learn more about the power of sowing your seed HERE.

When you begin walking in these 5 Quality Decisions To Move Your Life Forward, your circumstances will begin to change and line up with the will and purposes of God. Don’t turn back, and you’ll be well on track to walking in everything God has for you!

7 Principles for Living a Life of Resilient Faith

7 Principles for Living a Life of Resilient Faith Blog Post

When Brother Copeland first began to live by faith, and eventually preach faith, he knew nothing about it. He started where we all start—at the beginning. Brother Copeland learned the fundamentals of faith and how to use them the same way he learned to fly: First he studied the basic principles on the ground and then put them into practice in the air.

For example, the first time Brother Copeland flew solo, he had spent months learning the fundamentals of flying, and although he’d flown with an instructor, he’d never actually flown alone. He’d never put everything he’d learned into practice all at once, all by himself, thousands of feet in the air.

The day he did, he succeeded, but not without the help of the air traffic controller. Although Brother Copeland managed a number of touch-and-goes successfully, he had to be coached and educated even more to get back down on the ground and stay there—and to not intersect with another plane.
In much the same way, God has called us to live a life of resilient faith, but to do that, we need to first understand the fundamentals of faith from His Word, and then learn how to put them into practice in our everyday lives.
To get started, study these 7 Principles for Living a Life of Resilient Faith.

1. Faith is a force, and the law of faith governs this force.

“To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.” (Romans 3:26-27, KJV)

There are laws of physics that have developed over the years, and the reason they’re called laws is because they’re dependable. But before we knew we could trust them, pioneers and inventors tested their theories over and over. Once they experienced breakthrough after breakthrough after breakthrough, what they discovered became a law—a mathematical equation that could be trusted and adopted.

The law of faith is much the same; it governs the force of faith; and understanding it is the foundation of our living a life of resilient faith. God wants us to believe this law exists; he wants us to understand that it works by love (Galatians 5:6), and that we’re to work with it in our lives.

2. We are to live by faith.

“Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.” (Hebrews 10:38-39, KJV)

When Brother Copeland first got hold of understanding that we are to live by faith, he searched throughout the entire Bible for evidence of faith—and he found it from the beginning, in Genesis, to the ending, in Revelation. Over and over again, he read accounts where God released faith and manifestations happened—and he read where people in the Bible did the same. They were ordinary people who lived lives of resilient faith!

3. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” (Hebrews 11:1-3, KJV)

Faith is not mental; it’s a force God has given us to use. What’s more, did you catch those first three words of Hebrews 11? Do you realize they are the three words that follow Hebrews 10:38-39?

Now. Faith. Is. For every area of our lives. Faith is now, and hope is for our future—and they work together. Brother Copeland has often referred to hope as the blueprint of faith. You need hope to have faith. And you need faith and hope working together in your life to bring into this earthly existence what’s waiting for us in the heavenly realm—provision, answers, solutions, ideas, resources and change.

The Amplified Bible, Classic Edition reads Hebrews 11:1 this way: “Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].”

When God created the heavens and the earth, He didn’t create them out of nothing; He created them out of something we can’t see, which is the force of faith. What’s more, we are made in the image of God (Genesis 1:26-28); therefore, we can create with the force of faith, too.

4. Without faith it is impossible to please God.

“By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh. By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” (Hebrews 11:4-6, KJV)

When we live by faith, we please God, though oftentimes we’re tempted to try pleasing God by our work—but works alone don’t please God (James 2:26).

5. Faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God.

“O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?” (Galatians 3:1-2, KJV)
Faith comes by hearing…and hearing…and hearing…the Word of God (Romans 10:17). To walk in resilient faith, we have to read it, study it and listen to it—consistently. We need it coming into us through our eyes and our ears—continually.
We live in a day and age of Christian TV programs, podcasts, websites, social media sites and limitless access to online Bible translations. No matter where we are on the planet, we can access the Word of God 24/7, including on VICTORY Channel® and the KCM website. Take advantage of the time in which God has placed you. Position yourself to hear the Word of God, so you can get it into your heart and say with your mouth.

6. The Word of faith is in your mouth—so release it by speaking it.

“…God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.” (Romans 4:17, KJV)

We release faith by speaking it, by calling things that be not as though they were; but to do so, we have to first have an intimate relationship with the Word. For example, once Brother Copeland was preparing to fly overseas for more than 30 hours, and his doctor was concerned his body couldn’t stand up to not only the flying but also the hours of preaching ahead of him, particularly since Brother Copeland was having trouble with his left leg.

Not one to back down from a faith challenge, and not one to cancel a meeting, Brother Copeland tied two heating pads around his left leg, and turned the heat on high. Then he went out to sit in a chair in his backyard and began to do two things. In addition to releasing his faith by speaking specifically to his leg, he also began to give God glory in the face of all the pain. He spoke the truth—based on the Word—though it was not yet evident in his body. Isaiah 53:5 was the truth: “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”

As he did, the pain would ease up. But if Brother Copeland eased up, the intensity of the pain would return. So Brother Copeland matched the intensity of his pain with giving God glory and thanking Him for all the BLESSINGS around him, including his healing.
When you know how to live by faith, you come to a place where you have intimate relationship with the truth of the Word, and you believe it. Brother Copeland knew the Word—by Jesus’ stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5)—and he believed it and spoke it. What he added to that was God’s wisdom of giving God glory at the same time.

James 3:17 tells us, “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy” (NKJV). It’s not hypocrisy to have an intimate knowledge of the Word and then to speak it before there’s a manifestation of it. That’s walking in resilient faith, something God has called each one of us to do.

7. Use your faith like a mechanic uses a tool.

“So Jesus said to them, ‘Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, “Move from here to there,” and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.’” (Matthew 17:20, NKJV)

When Brother Copeland first began learning about faith, God gave him a revelation that he teaches to this day: “Use your faith on purpose like a mechanic uses a tool.”

According to Brother Copeland, when he was a young boy, he delighted in taking everything apart that he could so he could figure out how to put it back together.

This is how he approached learning about faith. He went to the Word, took it all apart, piece by piece, verse by verse. He underlined it. He memorized it. He meditated on it. He released it by speaking it. He declared it on behalf of his family, his children, the ministry, his Partners, his own physical health, the health of others—literally in every situation and circumstance of his life.

As we employ these 7 Principles of Living a Life of Resilient Faith into our lives, our circumstances will begin to change and line up with the Word of God. Because faith is a tool, it’s a force we can use. It’s a power we can release. It’s a life we can walk in. We can live a life of resilient faith!

4 Keys to Powerful Prayers that Work

As believers, we want to have powerful prayers that work—the kind of prayers that change history. We need effective praying techniques because we are called to go from glory to glory, yet we seem to witness a world that goes from chaos to chaos and injustice to injustice. We know we need to pray for our nation and the world, but sometimes it seems difficult to know where to start. It’s easy to pray for our friends and family, and even our church; but can we really take on the whole world from our own personal prayer closet?

We find the answer in two great events in history when Christians joined together in prayer for a mighty move of God in the United States.

Known as the Great Awakenings, these events awakened the church from its slumber and caused revival to sweep across the land with miracles, signs and wonders. The first occurred in the late 1700s when there was much immorality and unrest (sound familiar?). Then, in the early 1800s, America once again faced a dark time when the Word of God had gone cold in the hearts of the people and churches were not preaching the whole gospel of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit broke through and transformed this country.

How powerful were these awakenings? The first led to the American Revolution and the second ended slavery.

You may be thinking, We sure could use a Great Awakening today! Well, there is good news for us—a third great awakening has been prophesied and is expected by the Church.

The word of the Lord to Brother Copeland said this:

This is the time that has been prophesied about. And at stake here is not only your welfare in the land, but also My move in the end times, of a great awakening, saith The LORD. And it is that awakening that will save this land and others like it, for it is the time of the coming of The LORD. And you will rise up, and you will be My Name, you will be My power, and I will manifest Myself through you. And many shall come and say, Surely, He is the God of all good.

This is an exciting time to be a believer! We can expect to see a mighty move of God in this next great awakening, but we must remember that we have been called to take an active role—we cannot sit idly by and simply hope it will come to pass.

You may be asking yourself, Can I possibly be part of such a great move of God? The simple answer is YES—you can! Your prayers are much more powerful than you may realize.

To help you get started, here are four keys to bring world-changing prayer right into your living room:

1. Recognize Your Authority

“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy.” –Luke 10:19 (NKJV)

The best part of that verse? We have authority over all the power of the enemy. Have you ever really stopped and thought about that? That’s a lot of authority! But authority is only powerful if the one standing in it knows how to use it. A police officer is given authority by the government, but if he doesn’t use his authority, it is worthless.

That’s why the devil wants to keep us in the dark about how much power we really have. He knows that if we ever find out the true extent of our power, especially collectively, we won’t just change the world—we’ll bring the glory of God—which is something he doesn’t want to see happen.

Passivity won’t get the job done—we have to be bold in taking our authority over the enemy in every area of our lives—including the nation where we live.

How do we take authority over our nation?

We pray against the move of darkness in America. We curse every work of the devil at the root in Jesus’ Name. We cast down the weapons formed against the Word of God and the pursuit of righteousness, and take authority over the plots and plans of the enemy against this great country.

Then, we pray for outpourings from the Holy Spirit, including miracles, signs and wonders. We pray for God’s will to come to pass and for eyes to be opened to the salvation of the Lord. And we expect to see a great awakening that will transform our nation and our people.

2. Pray for Government Leaders

“I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them.  Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.” –1 Timothy 2:1-2

Notice in this verse the words first of all. Often, our first inclination is to complain or ridicule leaders who do not live up to our expectations. But the Bible is clear—the first thing we are to do is pray for them. Then, even when it is tempting to do so, “Don’t bad-mouth your leaders, not even under your breath” (Ecclesiastes 10:20, MSG).

“But our country seems too far gone. I don’t think my prayers will make a difference,” you might argue. With political parties at odds and protests breaking out across America, it may seem that our nation is more divided than ever. But we serve the God who is in the business of healing—even nations. Remember, politicians are not the answer. We need an awakening to God.

He makes the crooked places straight and the rough places smooth (Luke 3:5), and He wants to do the same thing in America and in our world. The Bible is clear that we are to believe for the impossible where our country is concerned and pray for our leaders, whether we agree with them or not, if we want to live in peace and see righteousness reign.

Where can you start?

Pray for the president, his family, staff and cabinet members. Pray that the Lord will strengthen them with wisdom, cause them to seek Him, and help them stand against wickedness and deception and pursue righteousness.

Ask the Lord to guide the president’s decisions and to surround him with godly counselors who will impart wisdom to him.

Then, do the same for your governor, senators, city council members and school board members. We need wisdom from the top all the way down!

Your prayers for the government work

3. Seek Unity

“Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.” –1 Corinthians 1:10 (NKJV)

Throughout the Bible, we see a mighty move of God whenever His people were in one accord. That’s why Jesus said, “For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20, NKJV). There is power in unity!

So, why does the Body of Christ suffer divisions?

We’re powerful together and the enemy knows it. Satan is the great divider—the author of the spirit of strife. His mission? Divide and conquer. Divide us over anything and everything—doctrine, politics, race—you name it.

Our job? Don’t take the bait.

So, determine to come together in the unity of faith and pray collectively for the next great awakening. Walk in love and refuse to fall prey to division and isolation. And pray for unity in the Body of Christ. It is our united prayers that will change the world.

4. Stand and Believe

“Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith.” –1 Corinthians 16:13

There is only one way to reshape our world—prayer. Not just any prayer. The faith-filled, persevering prayer that stands for victory even when there is no sign of change.

It was the faith and strength of believers in the past that brought on the Great Awakenings, founded our country and brought a revival that ushered millions into the kingdom of God.

World-overcoming prayer stands on 2 Chronicles 7:14 and believes God, who said, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land” (NKJV).

Will you join God’s prayer army?  Will you stand and believe for the next great awakening?

Let’s come boldly to the throne of grace and call in the next great awakening!

Be a believer who prays powerful prayers that work. Pray prayers that change history. Use these effective praying techniques, and let’s come boldly to the throne of grace and call in the next great awakening!
