Hebrews 6:18-20 -- "Therefore, we who have fled to Him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God's inner sancturary Jesus has already gone there for us."
We often live our lives without experiencing the power of hope because we fail to realize what is available…Continue

2 Kings 2:8,9,13,14 - Now Elijah took his mantle, rolled it up, and struck the water; and it was divided this way and that, so that the two of them crossed over on dry ground.

Elisha said, "Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me."........He also took up the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him, and went back and stood by the…Continue

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!'
The Lord answered her, 'Martha, Martha! You…Continue

Romans 12:3........God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.
As children of God, we should never say, "I don't have any faith." To say this is to say that God is a lair because His Word already tells us that "God has dealt to each one a measure of faith."
Why does faith of some seem to be stronger than others?
Faith is like a body muscle -- the more we…Continue

John 13:8 -- Peter said to Him, "You shall never wash my feet!" Jesus answered him, "If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me."
Peter could not imagine Jesus wanting to wash his feet -- his shocked reaction being "Lord, how can You wash my feet!"
Jesus says to him: "Peter, if I don't wash your feet, you have no part with Me." What the Lord was actually saying to Peter was,…Continue

John 5:14 - "Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee."
In saying this, Jesus shows that sin causes the tragedies that come into our lives. The reason for holiness in the life of the believer is that when we give in to sin, we yield ourselves to Satan, the author of that sin. Yielding to sin is yielding to…Continue

Through our spiritual eyes "we see Him" in our battles, challenges, opportunities and destinies -- the Lord moving great on our behalf--or there will be no lands, spoils, and victories to possess. God wants to demonstrate He is able to do all things exceedingly and abundantly beyond all we ask or think according to His power that works within us. He desires to do great miracles on our behalf and cause us to…Continue

GOD TOOK A LITTLE, INSIGNIFICANT MATTER, THE FOOD THEY ATE--AND USED IT TO SEE IF THEY WOULD LISTEN TO HIM OR NOT. HE TOLD THEM HOW MUCH OF IT TO GATHER, WHEN TO GATHER AND WHEN NOT TO, AND WHAT TO DO…Continue

Acts 1:4,8 - He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem but to wait for what the Father had promised. But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you.
THIS POWER CAME THROUGH AN ENCOUNTER WITH GOD. SOME, BECAUSE OF THEIR FEAR OF ERROR, HAVE SAID IT'S IMPROPER TO SEEK FOR AN EXPERIENCE WITH GOD.

The parable of the talents emphasizes that not all believers are given the same level of callings and gifts. The man who travels to the far country is Jesus and the servants represent us. A talent is a measure of money that represents the level of our call and gifts. Two important points in this parable:
1. All of the servants are given something -- this tells us that there is…Continue

To cleanse our ears out of any defilement,
Wickedness, garbage, gossip or slander
That has been poured into our ears,
So that we might hear…
