018 – 9 Ways to Avoid a Poverty Mindset in Rural Ministry

In this episode, I am really “preaching to myself” as I am currently praying through some big vision items in the life of The RESCUE Church.  On one hand I sense God is calling us to go to the next level in some pretty awesome ways, but on the other hand I find myself struggling to believe that our little church is capable of accomplishing some of these things.

So in this episode I label the following 9 ways to avoid falling into the trap of a poverty mindset:

  1. Believe that God wants to use me for a great purpose!
  2. Believe that God actually desires to bless me and give me good things.
  3. Believe that my best days are ahead!
  4. Magnify the greatness of God!
  5. Be careful about the people I surround myself with and allow to speak into my life.
  6. Be generous, both as an individual and as a church.
  7. Learn to think like successful people.
  8. Read stories of other people’s success in all areas of life.
  9. Celebrate stories of other people’s success in life.

What are some other things you would add to this list?
