Just because we walk and talk does not mean we are truly awake. Zechariah was not sleeping when an angel roused him "as a man who is awakened from his sleep" (Zechariah 4:1).
Perhaps we too need to be shaken from our slumber to possess the promises of God! Amazingly, in spite of all the signs, wonders, and warnings announcing that we are truly…

Matthew 24:12 -- And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.
Satan wants you to become the temperature of the culture that surrounds you, a believer bound by a stone cold heart. By exposure to hardness and darkness in the times that we live in, our love and passion will begin to cool by degrees.

When Jesus announced His ministry in the synagogue, He read from the scroll:

Faith is the confident speaking of God’s word:
Luke 18:1-8 Jesus told them a story showing that it was necessary for them to pray consistently and never quit. He said, “There was once a judge in some city who never gave God a thought and cared nothing for people. A widow in that city kept after him: ‘My rights are being violated. Protect me!’ He never gave her the time of day. But after this went on and on he said to…Continue

Our cry for a fresh experience of God is at the core of being open to believe for something NEW.
Brick by brick, life by life, God is creating a kingdom, a "spiritual house" (1 Peter 2:5).
The Holy Spirit gives assignments to people, "to each according to each one's uinique ability (Matthew 25:15). As He calls, He equips. To discover this assignment we must be open to something NEW.
We have an uncommon call to an uncommon life. "The Spirit has given each of us a special…
