Isaiah 40:31 - "but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."
We let the Lord take our heart through a process.
Just as Peter had to go through a series of events to be ready to be used in an extraordinary way, we realize that God…

We often assume that meekness and humility are the same, when really they are two different things entirely.
Numbers 12:3 talk about how Moses was the most humble man who had walked the earth in his time. Usually, when we think of Moses' humility we think of Exodus 4:10 when Moses said to God that he could not be used by God because he could not speak eloquently. However, this…

We are entering a new season of a fresh start! We are in a divinely appointed time of refreshing and restoring:
"So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the crawling locust, the consuming locust, and the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you. You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, who has dealt wondrously with you;…Continue

Exodus 4:2-4 - "And the Lord said to him, What is that in your hand? And he said, A rod. And He said, Cast it on the ground. And he did so and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it.

Moses' rod became a serpent. A serpent was the…Continue

Ephesians 3:19 - "And to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God."
There is a place greater than knowledge where we abide in Christ's love. This is, indeed, the stronghold of God. It is a place where our knowledge of God is fulfilled with the substance of God. We cannot truly know God without, in some way, also experiencing…

Romans 8:11 (NASB) - "But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you."

Hebrews 4:1-3 - "Let us fear, therefore, lest haply a promise being left us of entering into His rest, any of you should seem to have come short of it....because they were not united by faith with them that heard. For we which have believed do enter into that rest.."
We speak, with Scripture, of the "rest" of faith. Faith, however, only gives rest because it rests in God; it rests because it…Continue

In Ezekiel 37, the Prophet Ezekiel was carried in the Spirit to a valley of dry bones. These bones represented the house of Israel, but also speak of structures, as well as anything that has been dead for so long it no longer even resembles its former appearance. God led Ezekiel to walk around the dry bones, and in verse 2, the Bible makes three things very clear:
1. Ezekiel had to walk around the bones…

We have taken hold of the world and we have taken hold of clever ideas, but the seven women (seven churches -- see Revelation 2 and 3) are about to lay hold of their Beloved. The longing of the…
