Luke 18: 1-8 - Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart saying: "There was in a certain city a judge who did not fear God nor regard man. Now there was a widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, 'Get justice for me from my adversary.'
And he would not for a while, but afterward he…
We Believers have generally been too focused on and conscious of the imperfections of our lives. Dealing with our sins head on is important and vital, but there is a whole other glorious side to our relationship with God that goes beyond the forgiveness of our sins, as marvelous and essential as this is.
WE ARE CO-HEIRS CONFESSING CHRIST…
The tendency to embrace the concept of God being an angry Father is done in equal proportion to a person's inability to demonstrate His power. There is a connection between our belief system and what actually flows through us. If we don't see Jesus' life as the ultimate illustration of the will of God, we will continually undermine our ability to display it.
The Holy Spirit always wants to demonstrate what God says. God…
As followers of Christ, we are not immune from the difficulties of life. Scripture clearly declares that "all that will live godly in this present world shall suffer difficulty" (2 Timothy 3:12). Nevertheless, in the midst of troubles, God always provides a way of escape. The escape, however, is neither the absence of adversity nor the final end of problems. The escape is not a path toward a problem-free life; the "escape" is the company…Continue
Luke 11:1 states: "Now Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when He finished, one of His disciples said to Him, 'Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples.'"
This is our prayer, "Lord, teach us how to pray." -- we do not want to pray in our old ways, asking and begging. We want to come before Him as His Bride, drawing near to Him in a deep place of intimacy, and just…Continue
Genesis 1:26 - "Let Us make man in Our image, to be like Ourselves; let man have dominion....over all the earth."
It has always been the Lord's intent to have a "people" who would have dominion authority on the earth.
The word "dominion" (Hebrew - radah) means to prevail, rule, reign, to tread down."
"...I keep working toward that day when I will finally be all that Christ saved me for and wants me to be....forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead." - Philippians 3:12,13 (Living Bible)
Paul, the apostle, instructed us to walk purposefully toward one true goal (the DESTINY He has put in our spirit). This is not a time to wander around the…Continue

Life can get busy and noisy! This is the world that we live in, the world we get used to. How we deal with the busyness and noise makes all the difference in how we are able to walk with awareness of God's presence.
Luke 8:14-15 - "And as for what fell among the thorns, they are those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by the cares and riches and pleasures…
What would life look like if we postured ourselves as "victorious ones" and declared WHO WE ARE IN CHRIST into this natural realm?
When we yield our lives before Christ in prayer, He is then able to impart to us His heart of intercession. Inspired intercession is knowing God's plans and desires and declaring His will until it comes to pass. We can never give up or lose…

Matthew 5:13,14,16 -- "You are the salt of the earth......You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."
The entire world is poised for swift, radical change. It is imperative that the Church embrace and fully receive a bold…

2 Peter 1:4 - "By which He (God) has granted to us His precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire."
Each of us has a promised land for our lives. God's promises are key to us entering into the vision that God has given us. If you are in a desert God is ready…

"I know what you have done; I know that you are neither cold nor hot. How I wish you were either one or the other! But because you are barely warm, neither hot nor cold, I am going to spit you out of my mouth!...Buy also some medicine (from Me) to put on your eyes, so that you may see." - Revelation 3:15,18 TEV

"Anyone who loves his father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves his son or daughter more the me is not worthy of me; and anyone who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds His life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it." - Matthew 10:37-39

Jesus prophesied, "I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father" (John 14:12).
By listening to the Holy Spirit and then casting our nets where He tells us to, we will be able to haul in a miraculous catch!
This generation, as it…Continue

God is preparing overcomers – confident, bold, brave and mature children of God who fully manifest His love and will upon the earth. But many Believers are not experiencing this overcoming, abundant life, but instead are deeply wearied and discouraged.
Following are the three simple steps out of darkness and despair to advance toward the victorious life of an overcomer.…

If we are feeling "spiritually empty," it may be the Lord's intention for us to feel this way. The Lord often removes the old to make room for the new, as we are about to enter into a new season. Thus:
"Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven" (Matthew 5:3).
Rather than being discouraged or…
"Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him." - James 1:2-5
This Greek word for…Continue

Jesus Himself called on God as, "Abba Father," as He faced the Cross. He said, "Abba, Father, all things are possible for You" (Mark 14:36). Whatever cross or burden you are bearing, calling out to Abba Father is calling out for the impossible to become possible.
SET IN AND SEATED WITH…

Many Christians muddy along, hoping for nothing loftier than a short reprieve from sin and self-condemnation. Should the lowliness of our limited expectation have veto power over the enormity of God's promises?
May it never be!
For Scripture assures us that OUR CALLING to God's PURPOSE for our…

"Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit." - Ephesians…
