The title of my daily devotion today is entitled; are you calling the right telephone number?
I believe that every person on this earth has problems and issues to deal with every day. Most of us carry mobile phones around with us which allows us to call friends and family which is great. However, how many of us call on the name of Jesus to solve our problem?!
In Jeremiah 33:3 it says;
3 ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you and show you great and [a]mighty things, which you do not know.’
Call to me, and I will answer you. That’s powerful! So this means that when we call on the name of Jesus he will answer us! We may not see an immediate change, however, in many circumstances, I have had an answer to my question instantly!
We have to remember that when we pray and we pray in confidence and in faith and with an expectant heart, our prayers will be answered. It’s no good crying and then walking away saying, I don’t think anything will happen! This will only hold things back because you are doubting your prayers and your doubting that your prayers will be heard.
The verse also says; that I can show you mighty things which you do not know.
Once again, this is very powerful. I believe that the Holy Spirit can show us great things, I have personally seen this many times myself.
So why not today, instead of calling a friend, call on the name of Jesus and expect him to answer.
Let me know your thoughts and comments below.
In this devotional I want to ask you; what are you worrying about?
Worry seems to plague so many people, if you walk down the street how many people really looked happy, even in a church is sometimes!
If you’re not careful worry will take over, unless we stand on the word of God.
Did you know that worry is the complete opposite of faith, worry wears us out and actually make a sick and cause us to get to heaven earlier!
When worry comes start turning it into joy and start praying, develop an attitude of faith.
25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one [j]cubit to his [k]stature?
28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not [l]arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
My question is for you today; how do you react to anger?
I think anger is something that every human being can struggle within their life, however, words are very powerful we need to be careful what comes out of our mouth. In Proverbs 15:1 we read that a soft answer turns away anger and how a harsh word brings anger on. In the message version of Proverbs 15, it describes the verse like this; “a gentle answer diffuses anger, but a sharp tongue kindles a temper fire”! This is so true!
15 A soft answer turns away wrath,
But a harsh word stirs up anger.
2 The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly,
But the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness.
15 A gentle response defuses anger,
but a sharp tongue kindles a temper-fire.
2 Knowledge flows like spring water from the wise;
fools are leaky faucets, dripping nonsense.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers,
For they shall be called sons of God.
26-27 Go ahead and be angry. You do well to be angry—but don’t use your anger as fuel for revenge. And don’t stay angry. Don’t go to bed angry. Don’t give the Devil that kind of foothold in your life.
32 He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty,
And he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.
The title of my short devotional today is, “are you living in fear today?
Unfortunately, I see far too many people living in fear today, I appreciate that I don’t think any of us have seen anything like the present situation regarding the Coronavirus. Sadly, the media has also exaggerated the problem, coronavirus isn’t actually a pandemic, a pandemic is something that kills millions of people.
The great thing is that the Bible tells us in 2 Timothy 1:7, for God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
As Christians, we do not need to walk around with a spirit of fear, we need to have a sound mind and stand on the promises of God!
I have also mentioned to many people the power of Psalm 91, I really do not think some Christians understand who they are in Christ and the power we have to defeat the enemy.
1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”
3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the [a]fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
4 He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and [b]buckler.
5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
8 Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
10 No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
12 In their hands they shall [c]bear you up,
Lest you [d]dash your foot against a stone.
13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
14 “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will [e]set him on high, because he has known My name.
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With [f]long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”
The title of my devotional today is forgiveness brings freedom, I see too many people walking in unforgiveness, this is not the life that God intended for us. Forgiving people not holding on to grudges changes everything, forgiveness is the key to removing bitterness. Forgiveness changes your life forever. Joy will replace grief, peace will replace anger, love will replace hate and your mental health will surge forward and a huge weight will be lifted off your shoulders.
New King James Version
15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
Mr Could your website be worth $11,000 in 12 months?
This is a question that many people struggle to believe, did you know that this is actually possible?
You could actually build a website, write two blog posts a week, which equals around 100 posts and potentially sell your website for $11,000! Well if you don’t believe it, it’s actually possible!
The majority of people do not have a clue on how to build a website or even a web business. I avoid talking to most people about my online business and how to make money online as I still find the majority of people just think it’s a scam. I even have close family members who just really don’t understand what web business actually is and what it can do!
The best way to build a web business is to be trained properly. I have been part of a great membership site for almost six years, I will probably be a lifetime member. When I first joined the membership site, I was already making money online, because I had actually learnt the hard way! The reason I joined was that I wanted to be part of a community of like-minded people that all had the same ideas in mind.
When I first started working online and building a web business, I actually felt like I was working alone. I cannot recommend how important it is to be part of an active online community, we can share thoughts, ask questions and get trained, plus a lot more.
I was also working blind when I first started out online, I didn’t know what was right and what was wrong, so there was a lot of guesswork going on. It’s important that when you build an online business that you take regular steps in the right direction.
The training provided will take you through every step you need to create an online business and make it possible to sell a website for $11,000 in 12 months.
We are very privileged to live in an age where we have the Internet and so much access to a lot of information. Personally, the universities and colleges ought to be almost empty due to the fact that the majority of training is all available online. I appreciate there are some trades where you need to go out and learn practical skills. However, for an online business, you can learn everything from your home.
Did you know that you actually put a website up in approximately 30 seconds? You may like to see my video and blog post on this subject. It really is that easy!
Back in 2007 when I had my first moneymaking website built, I would not have dreamed of building my own website, it was just far too much work. However, 13 years later, things have become much easier.
I use the WordPress platform to build all my websites as WordPress has all the functionality that I need.
I know that there are a huge number of success stories at Wealthy Affiliate. There are over 2 million subscribers on Wealthy Affiliate. I appreciate that they are not all active, but there are certainly a lot of members that are active. Many have gone on to build their own courses and membership websites.
One of the most important things with any business is consistency. All the successful Internet marketers that I know show consistency. This doesn’t mean that everything they do always works. It just means that they keep moving forward, posting regularly and taking their business to the next level.
I would suggest creating a free account to start with Wealthy Affiliate to try out this great platform and then to become a premium member once you have tried and tested the platform. Once you are signed up you can then start the training.
Just remember that you have to take action, talking about something won’t make any difference, but taking action will. I am here to help you every step of the way. The great thing is that you have a whole community waiting to answer your questions.
Let me know in the comments box below if you are going to take action.
Today we are going to be looking at creating product sets in datafeedr 2020. Over the last few months, I have been creating a series of videos on creating a WordPress website from scratch. In my previous post, we talked about how to select networks and merchants in Datafeedr. In this video, I’m going to show you how to add product sets using the datafeedr WordPress plug-in.
The datafeedr WordPress plug-in enables you to populate your website with content very easily. It’s possible that in a very short period of time your website can be loaded with content. However, you will need to write blog posts and link to the various product pages to gain traction on your website.
One of the many great things about the data feed plug-in is its ability to update products automatically. For example, if there is a product change of price or something similar, the product will automatically be updated. Or if the product is no longer available it will automatically be removed, unless you create a rule that allows a product to stay on your website.
Datafeedr can also be used for price comparison sets and much more. The functionality that data feeder offers is huge, why not take a look at the software?
In the previous video and blog post we were adding networks and merchants to our WordPress website. The great thing is that these networks and merchants can be added at any time. However, you must be signed up to the various networks merchants before trying to add them to Datafeedr.
So, if we go to our WordPress dashboard and go to product sets and then add new. Obviously there are no product sets to show at the moment as this is our first product set. Once we have added the first product set there will be a section that says, “All Product Sets” and the product sets will not be showing empty.
So, if we go to “add new” we need to name our product set, I’m going to name the product set, “flower seeds”. You can name the product set at this stage anything you like. However, the name needs to be something relevant to your product set.
On the right-hand side of the product set page, there is a list of items to carry out which will create your product set. As you can see on the video, our first list of to-do items has a line through as we have completed the first task.
Datafeedr allows us to create different fields when we are creating a product set. I normally just use two or three fields as I find it is adequate and works well for finding the necessary product feeds. I have selected “any field” and “has image”, I will sometimes use “product name” depending what comes up in my search results. It can sometimes be a bit of trial and error, the more you use the software, the easier it gets.
We are now going to add a title for our search, my title is going to be “flower seeds” as this is precisely what I am looking for. Sometimes when I’m carrying out a search, I may experiment using slightly different titles, even making word plural can make a difference. You can practice as much as you want with different words and using different fields. We are now going to click on the search button and see what comes up, I have no idea how many items Datafeedr will find.
Our search has found 746 products on eight pages, that’s a lot of flowers!
Sometimes unwanted or rogue products will appear in a search, these can be very easily removed or added to our product set. Simply scroll down the products and check that your products meet your search criteria. Repeat the process on all the pages. If you find a rogue product, simply click on the right-hand side, on the red button, where it says, “block product” and this will put the rogue product in “blocked products” section.
If we want to put the “blocked product” back in our product set, click on the tab “blocked products” and you’ll see the blocked products, click on the “unblock product” and your product will be returned to the product set.
We now have to click on the “add as saved search” button. If we don’t click on this button, we will not save our product set. So your product set will not be able to upload to your website. I have actually forgotten to save a product set several times; I then end up with empty product sets!
We now have to go and create a product category, you can find the categories on the right-hand side of your product page. For this category, we are going to create a category called “flower seeds”. We don’t have any parent categories at the moment, so we just save our category. It’s important to name this category relevant to your products as this will be seen on your website.
Now we are already to publish our product set, click on the publish button and your products will be waiting to be uploaded automatically.
We are now going to go to product sets where you can see that we have one product set. It takes time for products to upload so we have the option to bump up a product set.
If we check the box next to the product set and then use the drop-down menu and go to; “bump product set with priority” this well tell the cron to upload the product set. This may not happen immediately, just be patient! We have to remember that there are a lot of products to upload, 746 to be precise. This will take some time.
I am looking at my product set 12 hours later and it is 85% complete, so we are nearly there. The initial product sets take time to upload. Once we have all the product set up, it’s a much easier task as the product sets are just updated automatically.

Today we are looking at how to select networks and merchants in Datafeedr. I’m making a training series of videos on setting up a brand-new website and documenting the procedure. In this video, I’m describing how to set up various affiliate networks and merchants within Datafeedr.
So I am in datafeedr and networks in the WordPress dashboard. In the video you can see various networks that the Datafeedr platform is connected with, I’m sure you will recognise some of these networks. I’m now going to connect to with some of the networks that I am already associated with. Just remember that you must create an account with each of these networks before you can use the networks in Datafeedr.
Most networks are fairly straightforward to sign up to, it’s good to sign up in advance as some programs take a few days to come back to you. Over the years I have had very few networks refuse me. Just make sure that the networks have your particular niche.
So now I am going to save the selected networks that I require for this niche. The great thing is that I can come back at any time and add another network, should the need arise. Once we have saved our networks then we can look to selecting the required merchants.
So now we need to scroll up to the top of the page and select merchants. We are still in the Datafeedr > Networks area in the WordPress dashboard. You can see in the video the three merchants that I have joined, ClickBank, Paid on Results and Webgains, once again, I can go back at any time and add more merchants.
I am now going to carry out a search for merchants that I will be using for my website. Simply start typing in the box and the merchants will appear, as I mentioned earlier, you must be approved by these merchants before you start.
I am searching for Sutton seeds and sure enough, this appears in the list. This has now been added to my selected merchants. Just for an experiment, I typed plants into the search box, but this didn’t return any search results. You need to search by the merchant’s name rather than the type of product. You can search for various networks individually on the merchant’s platform.
So, I am now adding Dobies, Greenfingers and Greenhouses direct, so I have four merchants, including Sutton seeds. I will come back and add some more merchants after I have completed this video.
If you have any questions about this blog post, YouTube video or Datafeedr please comment on the video of this blog post. I am here to help.
