"Have you not known? Have you not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, faints not, neither is weary? There is no searching of His understanding. He gives power to the faint; and to them that have no might He increases strength." - Isaiah 40:28-29
No matter how good our intentions may be today, in a short time, we will become tired, discouraged, and…Continue

We see that the engine of the Gospel message that drives it into the world--is His presence and glory. It is not a tantalizing self-induced experience that produces no fruit, but rather an illuminating light which leads the world to Jesus and becomes the pillar of fire that leads His Church into the world. Yet often in contemporary circles, we see the opposite in effect. We want to privatize His glory and keep it shrouded in personal experience, assuming the…Continue

Hebrews 3:6 - "Whose house we are, if we hold fast our boldness and the glorying of our hope firm unto the end."
Many believers, who for a time run well, get so entangled in the business or the pleasure of life, the literature, or the politics, or the friendships of the world, that all the life and the power of their profession is lost.…

Song of Solomon 2:9 - "Behold, He is standing behind our wall, He is looking through the windows, He is peering through the lattice."
Yes, Christ dwells within us, but He is standing behind our "walls." The walls between us and the Savior are primarily the work of :
1. Unrenewed Minds
Getting in touch with God's PURPOSE for our life can have the single most powerful impact on our own life after coming to Jesus and being born again. All Christians are called to be witnesses, but we also have a CALLING in Christ that is more specific than that.
The main factors that will lead to a revelation of our earthly DESTINY and being prepared for it are the following:…Continue

Zephaniah 3:17 - "The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; He will save, He will rejoice over thee with joy; He will rest in His love, He will joy over thee with singing."
Why is it right to sing, shout, dance and leap? Acts of celebration get repeated mention in the psalmist's descriptions of how we approach God. The reason -- God is a God to celebrate. He rejoices over us with…Continue

Psalm 18:28-29 says, “For You will light my lamp; the Lord My God will enlighten my darkness. For by You I can run against a troop; by my God I can leap over a wall.”
Not only will you leap over a wall, but you will receive supernatural strength, leap over every obstacle, and position yourself to go through the opening door that God has for you. Fear not the enemies on the other side of this…

As sons and daughters of the King, we have been given authority to pray Heaven's blessings to earth.
It is God's desire to bless us and for us to witness and "see" His promises manifest.
Just as Jeremiah was given the ability to "see" his new season (see Jeremiah 1:4-12), we are present-day Jeremiahs – having our eyes opened to understand and know all that…Continue

Exodus 14:11,12 - "They said to Moses, 'Was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you brought us to the desert to die? What have you done to us by bringing us out of Egypt...It would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert!'"
There was something comforting about the past that the Israelites preferred at this point to the unknown dilemma of future…Continue
Poor Devil in my world!
Poor Devil in your world! WHY is Satan SO poor? He only flaunts his ideas of destruction; but, everything that he does is lie to people.
I see HOW he operates; and, it is hard for a person to see the evil in Satan; unless they are walking with the Holy Ghost and keeping Christ’s commandments.
Satan’s ways indeed appear beautiful and sensible; but, the cost to the human soul of following him leads to the same destruction that he himself will face…Continue

Ephesians 5:14-18 - "Wake up from your sleep, and arise from the dead, And Christ shall shine upon you. Live life with a due sense of responsibility, not as men who do not know the meaning of life but as those who do. Make the best use of your time, despite all the evils of these days. Don't be vague but grasp firmly what you know to be the will of the Lord."
As believers, we are instructed…Continue

1 Samuel 3:1 -- "In those days the word of the Lord was rare; there were not many visions."
If Eli could not hear from God, the people would not receive messages from Him.
The only words that we receive that are of help to people are words from God. If we don't spend time LISTENING to Him, then we will not receive words by which we will bless and…

Ephesians 6:12 -- "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places."
The reality is that we're in battle. We're being prevailed against. Some of us are "losing" in the fight against sin and sickness, disease and death. Some of us are…

We know we are a priesthood, chosen by God, possessed by God, holy like God and royal to God. We have immediate access to Him and we don't need a human…Continue

If we will live in the awareness of the heavenly, we must be freed from the boundaries of the earthly. To awaken faith, the Holy Spirit will take us through times when the presence of God cannot be clearly discerned.
Psalm 13:1 -- "How long wilt…

In Song of Solomon 2, the Lover (Jesus) is wooing His Beloved to a new place in verse 10, "Rise up, my beloved, my fair one, and come away," he invites.
He then goes on to declare that "the winter is past…the flowers are springing up, and the time of singing birds has come…the fig trees are budding, and the grapevines are in blossom," and then he repeats his invitation for her…
