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 this, our present relationship to the Lord, and…Continue

2 Timothy 1:9, "God...who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began."
The term "holy calling" could also be interpreted "sacred DESTINY." The Lord considers it a sacred thing for us to enter into the divinely ordained function that He has destined for us. The prophet…Continue

John 7:38 - "He that believeth on Me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water."
We as children of God are to bring forth life and fruit that was birthed and begun in God.
The word believe is in no way a shallow belief, but one of complete trust and total reliance on. Jesus is…

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 Jesus in prayer, He is then able to activate our calling in Christ and 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 hope. Instead, we stand on His…Continue

And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God." - Luke 13:11-13

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

A move of God by definition involves God moving. Which means we may not "find" Him exactly where (or how) we have in the past – because He is doing a new thing. He is not changing, God never changes (Malachi 3:6 and Hebrews 13:8). But He loves to reveal more of Himself to us in greater and greater depths and dimensions so that we can know more of Him (and thus make more of Him known to the world around us).…Continue

Zechariah 9:12,14 - "Return to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope even today I declare that I will restore double to you......The Lord will be seen over them, and His arrow will go forth like lightning."
Many believers – especially young people, ask about commissioning -- they want to know who should commission them, when they should be commissioned, and, spiritually speaking, are they…Continue

The deadness and feebleness of the saints today is largely due to their receiving and following the truth with their minds. This is nothing but the law. In spite of the exactness of the letter, it is absolutely not of the Holy Spirit.
Our understanding deals with conceptions and images of divine things, but it cannot reach the real life of the inner spirit. He fills only the pursuing hungry and thirsty soul with spiritual…Continue

2 Corinthians 11:3 -- "But I fear...your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ."
The problem is that we mistakenly strive for information when in reality we need revelation.

God's desire is that we fully understand who we really are in Him and the extent of the call on the lives of His saints. The call is immense – full of His "kabod" glory, and it is vital to our covenant DESTINY in Christ that we have His revelation on the fullness of the call in this incredible hour we are chosen to serve Him in.…

Luke 10:38-42 - "As Jesus and his disciples went on their way, he came to a certain village where a woman named Martha welcomed Him in her home. She had a sister named Mary, who sat down at the feet of the Lord and listened to His teaching. Martha was upset over all the work she had to do; so she came and said, 'Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her to come and help me!'…

We develop a resurrection mindset, not just the future resurrection but in our thinking now. There will be an ultimate resurrection and glorification. There is a resurrection power working in us now. Our spirit has been raised from the dead already (see Romans 6:3).
"And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will…
Some say, 'The River is flowing. Just step in.' But we need to say, 'Just step in, and the river will flow.'
Some are passively waiting to see what God will do, while He is waiting for us to exercise faith to see Him move with power. Mark said it well:
"And they went out and preached…

"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:
"For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear…
