The Holy Spirit now lives in our inner man to strengthen us and help us to do what we could not do without Him. God's kingdom authority, dominion, and majesty should be reigning in every believer's inner man.
"That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man.....that you may be filled with all the fullness of God." - Ephesians…
How much time do you spend in God's Word compared to taking in other perspectives from television, movies, books, magazines, and the Internet?
How will your life change as you become more extreme with your faith? Can you visualize how your relationship with the Father is changing?
As we lay down our own plans and yield completely to Him day by day, the Scriptures promise…Continue
The true success of our ministry to others will be by how it brought forth the formation of Christ within the person God has given us to DISCIPLE.
Church members need to be encouraged to "think bigger." They need to see themselves as ministers to their fellow man.
The Christian life is more than just commitment to Christ; it includes a commitment to other…Continue
As God's people we learn to live on the basis of hearing God's voice and obeying His word.
"The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority; but the Father who dwells in me does his works." - John 14:10
The reshaping of our values and our desires is the key work of the Holy Spirit. This…Continue
We meet people everywhere. Our business is TO TURN THEM from being forgetful of God, from being devoid of faith, from being prayerless, so that they become people who habitually pray, who believe in God, remember Him and do his will.
Whenever we share a testimony of what the power of Jesus has done -- any miracle, healing, salvation account -- the Spirit of prophecy is loosed over the people who are hearing it. This…Continue

The Old Covenant was a system of judgment and death, of the CLOSED Heaven. But Jesus says: 'You shall see the Heaven OPENED, and a way between Heaven and earth, between God and man, made clear. I am that way. I will open Heaven by My own blood.'
"Then He added, 'In truth, in very truth I…Continue
Maybe you feel like your dreams have died, your hopes have died, and your prospects have died. We live in a dramatic world where you may face great hindrances with excessive drama -- God has drama for you -- divine drama. God has a perfect track record, and His resume for doing special things during dark seasons is flawless.
God created us to move through spiritual seasons. And some of those seasons are spent in a…Continue
God has a life for you that has been birthed right out of the atmosphere of Heaven. It holds your identity and PURPOSE and is the key to walking in the same measure that Jesus walked in. It's not about being special or called out more than anyone else. It's a matter of how you utilize your identity and the power of the Gospel.
Do we know who we are? Proverbs says, "As a man thinks, so he…Continue

"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them." - Ephesians 2:10
We were created to serve God. We were placed on this planet for a special assignment. The enemy's strategy tempts us to wear our own identities in a lesser role than what God desires for us (our DESTINY).…

Colossians 3:3 - "For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God."
When Christ died, we died. When Christ rose, we rose with Him. Christ is now seated at the right hand of God and us with Him in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6). All the work is finished. When we hideaway with God we become absorbed into His very life. With our hearts yielded to the Holy Spirit, we become…Continue

No one wants to make another trip through the wilderness. This is not a time to walk in circles. We are to walk with a true goal, aim, and purpose, making the most of each occasion, because we know the time is short (see Ephesians 5:14-17). Paul, the apostle, instructs us to walk purposefully toward one true goal -- God's PURPOSE for our life (see Philippians 3:12-16).
Unless we enter…

It is love that causes us to rise up from spiritual sleep and open ourselves to God. Love is the call, and love is the transforming power.
Oh! That we would see Jesus at work in and through us in the days to come. The power of love made manifest in the healing of hearts and diseases. The resonance of love in and through us that results in demons recognizing the authority of the sound of love in our voice, causing them to flee.…Continue

We must be a burning and shining people who know where we are headed, fixing our eyes on our destiny, if we are going to awaken broken and disillusioned hearts!
Jesus is not looking at our intentions, wishes, or knowledge of what is right. He is looking at our works! Are we allowing the grace of God to produce holy living and ministering to others in our lives, or have we received the grace of God in…
"It is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure." Philippians 2:13
God does not see us in ourselves - He sees us in Christ. He does not see us, He sees Christ in us. If we really believed that, we would be delivered from ourselves and would indeed be triumphant Christians.

Worship is the spiritual equivalent of the power of magnification. When you begin to worship, you ascend to join the Object of your adoration. If you are soaking in His presence, then you are looking down on your problems.
"Oh, magnify the Lord with me." - Psalm 34:3
Times of difficulty give us an opportunity we don't have otherwise, and that is the…

Matthew 5:13,14,16 -- "You are the salt of the earth......You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."
Since the moment we first came to Christ, there has been an updraft of the Holy Spirit, a constant drawing from God lifting…Continue

"Go...and see what the land is, and whether the people who dwell in it are strong or weak, whether they are few or many, and whether the land that they dwell in is good or bad, and whether the cities that they dwell are camps or strongholds, and whether the land is rich or poor, and whether there are trees in it or not. Be of good courage and bring some of the fruit of the land." - Numbers 13:18-20…

"For I am the Lord, I do not change." - Malachi 3:6
God has called us to a place of peace in His presence. That peace is a witness to us that we are in tune with Him, feel connected and things are in the flow. If we don't feel that flow there is something out of sync and it is our responsibility to get that back in rhythm. God has a frequency. The Lord does not change. That means His frequency…
