In “The Art of War,” Sun Tzu dispenses easy-to-digest advice regarding military tactics and strategies. Although specific to warfare, his ideas have endured, as they are frequently applicable to life outside of military confrontation. Whether mentoring someone at the office or teaching your kids how to rule the playground, Sun Tzu is there for you.

What is less known is how he influenced Joel Osteen and his iteration of the prosperity gospel. As it is written, “All men can see these tactics whereby I conquer, but what none can see is we are able to share it with others on Christmas and every other day of the year.”

Yes, we can. We can see those tactics and we can share. Not always literally, but we can share nonetheless. We can win. Our time is too valuable, our destiny too important to go through the day weighed down by offense. Attack is the secret of defense; defense is the planning of an attack.


The enemy will try to label you with everything you’ve done wrong, so let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.


If your opponent is of choleric temper, irritate him. When you do that you are passing the test. And God promises your marked moments are on their way.


You must make a decision that you are going to move on. It won’t happen automatically. You will have to rise up and say, “There are roads which must not be followed, armies which must not be attacked, towns which must not be besieged, positions which must not be contested, commands of the sovereign which must not be obeyed.”


In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity

The key to living in victory is to learn how to get up on the inside.


There is a lot right with you.


Have you ever considered that you cannot change what you tolerate?


Supreme excellence consists of breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting.


Opportunities multiply as they are seized.

What you receive is directly connected to what you believe.


Be extremely subtle even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of the opponent’s fate.


Some things you can only learn in the struggle.


He who is prudent and lies in wait for an enemy who is not, will be victorious.


Often, out of our greatest rejection comes our greatest direction.


If you learn to pray bold prayers, it allows God to do big things in your life.


If your thinking is limited, then your life is going to be limited.


Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.


You weren’t created to simply exist, to endure, or to go through the motions; you were created to be really alive.


The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.


Mystify, mislead, and surprise the enemy.


Thus the expert in battle moves the enemy, and is not moved by him.


Great results can be achieved with small forces.


You need to be around people who know more than you and have more talent than you. Don’t be intimidated by them; be inspired.


You can be in the storm, but don’t let the storm get in you.


Be where your enemy is not.


The dream in your heart may be bigger than the environment in which you find yourself.


The worst calamities that befall an army arise from hesitation.


You must learn to follow that love. Don’t ignore it. Act on it. Somebody needs what you have.


When you are tempted to get discouraged, remind yourself that according to God’s word, your future is getting brighter; you are on your way to a new level of glory.


You have to learn to follow your heart. You can’t let other people pressure you into being something that you’re not.


To begin by bluster, but afterwards to take fright at the enemy’s numbers, shows a supreme lack of intelligence.


It’s not always easy to get over some of those bumps in the road, those disillusionments and disappointments. It’s going to take a strong will.


He will win who knows how to handle both superior and inferior forces.


If you know you have to wait anyway, why not make a decision to enjoy your life while you’re waiting?

Be the one to stand out in the crowd.


At first, then, exhibit the coyness of a maiden, until the enemy gives you an opening; afterwards emulate the rapidity of a running hare, and it will be too late for the enemy to oppose you.


God wants you to succeed; He created you to live abundantly.


Start expecting things to change in your favor. Dare to boldly declare that you are standing strong against the forces of darkness.


One need not destroy one’s enemy. One need only destroy his willingness to engage.


Do all you can to make your dreams come true.


All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when we are able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must appear inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.


Engage people with what they expect; it is what they are able to discern and confirms their projections. It settles them into predictable patterns of response, occupying their minds while you wait for the extraordinary moment — that which they cannot anticipate.


At the start of each new day, remind yourself: “I am talented. I am creative. I am greatly favored by God. I am equipped. I am well able. I will see my dreams come to pass.”


Keep on keeping on!


When the enemy is relaxed, make them toil. When full, starve them. When settled, make them move.
