"So Moses brought Israel from the Red Sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water." - Exodus 15:22
For many of us, we have experienced a wilderness while fulfilling God's purpose for our life. We feel lonely, barren, and unfruitful. We have been so dry and thirsty that we find ourselves crying out to God in desperation. Our life is…Continue

Ephesians 1:17,18 -- "That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling.."
The dreams and visions God births in us brings revelation, illumination, and inspiration. The Holy Spirit instantly reveals spiritual knowledge…
Performance is a very hard taskmaster. In fact, under performance we can never do enough. For us to believe that God only loves us or approves of us because of what we DO for Him rather than WHOSE we are, is to actually demonstrate that what Christ did on the Cross is of no effect! In other words, we are believing that His death and the shedding of His Blood was not enough to place us in right-standing with God.…
"That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. - Ephesians 3:17-19

Revelation 1:6 - "And has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve His God and Father -- to Him be glory and power forever and ever! Amen."
Mary was chosen to bring forth the Son of God into the world in human flesh. Jesus Christ was a living, breathing move of God. Every place he went heaven was brought forth on the earth. He was also conceived within every born again believer at the…Continue
It is imperative that we realize our personal identity in Christ. In Colossians 2:9 we discover this central fact concerning Christ Jesus: "For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily."
Our outlook on life is changed as we contemplate: "And you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power." (Colossians…Continue
WE WISH TO SEE JESUS
John 12:21 tells us that a delegation from the Greek community came to the disciples and said, "We wish to see Jesus."
If there is an intense yearing within us, then there must be something to respond to that aspiriation or we would not possess it.…Continue
Mark 8:15 - “Watch out! Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.”
In saying “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod” He was warning them about influences of the mind that can rob us of the understanding of revelation and renewal. Three kinds of leaven are mentioned in the above verses: the leaven of Herod, the Pharisees,…Continue
There are doctrines today that allow Christians to sit back and do nothing. They defend this cool, casual leave-it-all-to-God attitude with Bible passages. Such an outlook is entirely foreign to the spirit of the New Testament.
The ultimate purpose of ministry should not be to teach people how to get things from God. The aim of the Christian life is to give and to equip fellow…
The decisions we make, the places we go, the things we say -- create images in our subconscious. First, we think a thought; then we rehearse it until it begins to formulate an image. Finally, our words speak things into existence and our actions set dynamics into motion. We are to present and display the Kingdom of God that dwells within us, releasing it in powerful demonstrations. We are not called to simply exist, but to be…Continue
"My Beloved spake, and said unto me, 'Rise up, My love, My fair one, and come away.'" Song of Solomon 2:10
The Lord has something far better to offer us if we will respond to His call to "rise up" with Him into a higher realm of spiritual reality. To this pressing call, He adds a word of encouragement:…
The very first miracle of Jesus turning water into wine in John 2 provides some clues as to how we might access the reality of what we have read and studied in His Word.
There was a wedding in Cana of Galilee. Jesus was there and a need arose. Jesus was asked, and He responded by turning the water into wine. He thus openly revealed His glory for the first time in public. This miracle opened the flow for others,…
The main idea for breakthrough comes from the breakthrough of water from 2 Samuel 5:20: "So David went to Baal Perazim (which means "possessor of the breaches"), and David defeated them there; and he said, "The LORD has broken through my enemies before me, like a breakthrough of water."
The word breakthrough comes from the Hebrew word "perets"…Continue
And He said to them all, "If any man will [willingly choose to] come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me." Luke 9:23
Each of us who desires to personally know and serve the Lord must first make this life-changing decision to "take up our cross." When we willingly do…Continue
One of the most central things in the universe is authority.
But we have lost our understanding and value for authority. In the earlier days, authority was respected and honored and greatly desired. All ancient cultures had a great respect for authority, whether in the home or in society. As we lost our sense of authority, we have also started losing our most valuable institutions, such as the family, marriage, etc. And this loss is reflected in the breaking down of society and the…Continue
Genesis 32:24 - "And Jacob was left alone. And a man wrestled with him until the breaking of the day. When the man saw that he did not prevail against Jacob, he touched his hip socket, and Jacob's hip was put out of joint as he wrestled with him. Then he said, 'Let me go, for the day has broken.' But Jacob said, 'I will not let you go unless you bless me.'"
The Lord looks for something in us…Continue
