"Finding the sweet spot" could be a phrase for living in a place of enjoyment, peace and rest in relationship with God, and staying in balance and harmony with His design for our life. This is where the maximum Kingdom result is accomplished. It isn't about trying harder or spinning the wheels faster, but about relaxing into all that God has given and then joyfully working with Him in the Kingdom.…Continue

When we have an established place of intimacy with God we then have the great responsibility and privilege to join Jesus where He ever lives to intercede in the heavens, interceding from Heaven's view. (Hebrews 7:25)
THE HIGHEST PLACE
Ephesians 2:6 - "And He raised us up…Continue

"...Consider the ROCK from which you were cut, the quarry from which you were mined." - Isaiah 51:1-2
Our adversary has been busy in an effort to distract us and dull our memory of who we are and Whose we are, where we've come from and where we're going. Religious spirits are experts at getting us to fear things we do not understand, compare ourselves to others, and compete with one another.
Even as a child, the enemy tried to subvert or supplant our…Continue
If we limit God by what we see in the natural, we can easily become double-minded concerning our future and God's promises. James 1:8 speaks about those who are double-minded as being "uncertain" (unstable) in all their ways. When we are unstable and not completely focused on God's Word, we can fall or stumble along the way. None of us enjoys stumbling – it can be harmful to our health...and spiritual vision! With today's challenges we must have supernatural vision to remain in a position of…Continue

The Scriptures tell us that the Spirit of Truth is promised as our heritage to guide us into all truth and to show us things to come.
"But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to…Continue

1 Samuel 16:7 - " ...for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."
Many people in the "church culture" of today are awakening with the increased understanding of God's Kingdom message, which has always gone from the inner being to the outer person.
"You must work out your own…Continue

The Holy Spirit is "the Helper" not "the Doer." He will do His part, but He expects us to do ours. It is good to be able to recognize the work of the Holy Spirit, but we must not stop there. We must go on to seek Him for what our part is and then do it.
You must constantly seek to understand what God wants us to become (our DESTINY). - (Matthew 7:7)…

"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…Continue

Many Christians muddy along, hoping for nothing loftier than a short reprieve from sin and self-condemnation. Should the lowliness of our sinful state 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 life, even as lowly as we feel sometimes, is an upward climb that relies…

SET IN AND SEATED WITH HIM
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…Continue

"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
