Oh that God would stir our hearts with passion; that we would encounter Him with such abandon, that we could all say: "God, I'm as hungry for You today as I was at any other time in my life!"
Psalms 42:1-2, "As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before…Continue

The early Church did something that few do today or even know about—they ministered to the Lord.
Salvation is more than a legal exchange affecting our position before God. Salvation also includes the exchange of deep loving affections and adoration. God first communicates His enjoyment, longing, and affections for us and, in turn, we respond in a similar…Continue

Philippians 3:17 - "Join with others in following my example, brothers, and take note of those who live according to the pattern we gave you."
Apostle Paul taught the Church in Philippi that they were to live "according to the pattern" they had seen modeled in himself and his team (Philippians 3:17).…Continue

Hebrews 11:1 - “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen."
That word "evidence" means an outward sign or indication. Faith is something that furnishes proof. Faith is not an obscure or intangible concept that a Believer's hope will bring change. Rather, it is a reality or a sign of what the Believer…Continue

"For she said within herself, 'If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.'" (Matthew 9:21)
To touch God, we are to be properly positioned to endure the "press." The woman with the issue of blood pressed past the multitudes to "touch Jesus." As a result, she was made whole. This woman was desperate. She suffered with an unclean condition and none of those who were considered…

We all need to stay in the House of the Lord. None of us lives unto ourselves alone. We must be together in battle, and continually encouraged, trained, and nurtured in the context of OUR IDENTITY IN CHRIST IN God's House. "It's me and Jesus" has never been God's plan. The Bible uses the word "TOGETHER" 484 times:

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." - Hebrews 11:1
Having faith means that we do not require proof prior to our actions. And as we stand in faith on the word of God, declaring it without doubt, we can expect evidence to be produced because of our faith (see Hebrews 11:3). It is…Continue

God is calling us into a new season. He is calling us into a new day. He is asking us to begin to understand the power we carry in Jesus' name. We need to understand the power of His Spirit that longs to pour through us. As we tarry in His Spirit, we carry it out to a broken world. We don't look to the anointed and the appointed but look to the Author and the Finisher of your faith.
He has called…Continue

The river of God is always moving, always changing, and we must change with it.
With each battle won on the victorious battleground , change happens. Once you've conquered the enemy in a certain area, it's time to move on. We move ahead in the army of God, advancing His Kingdom. As long as we keep marching, we're changing because faith moves us ahead,…Continue

"When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place." - Acts 2:1
Pentecost happened at an appointed time, in an appointed place, with an appointed people.
God is still looking for a desperate people who are longing to meet with Him in surrender to His presence, so that He might fill us up with the power of His Spirit and…Continue

We are to be the glory of His heavenly essence upon the earth. As we allow God to expose the indifference and distractions in our lives, His light and nature will supernaturally come forth in power through each of us as we reject our worldly agendas and bring forth our DESTINY in Christ.

We are called as fishers of men (see Matthew 4:19; Mark 1:17). The question posed is, “what exactly are we using to attract people to our message”?
In our quest to condemn sin, we have actually begun to condemn the people that are caught in the traps of sin. We place the focus of our message on how bad sin is, rather than on how compassionate Jesus is.…Continue

We are called to live as ambassadors of another realm (see 2 Corinthians 5:20 and Philippians 3:20). In every situation we encounter we are given a choice. We can "call it as we see it" or we can choose to "call it as He sees it."
Before we can call it as He sees it, we have to actually see it as He sees it. Ezekiel understood this when the Spirit of God brought Him into a valley of dry bones and…Continue

Although God will bless His people, there are some things that He will not agree with--for example, our religious mindsets. The Holy Spirit cannot stay and dwell in these wrong concepts as they are contrary to the truth, because He is the Spirit of Truth.

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. And the Lord said to Moses, Put forth your hand and take it by the tail. And he stretched out his hand and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand."

The Apostle Paul said he was "apprehended by Christ." Think about that. That's what a Christian is; someone who has been apprehended (stopped, and taken into the custody) by Jesus Christ.
When God gives you a promise or word or vision which you know is from Him – don't just look at it but apprehend it. Grasp hold of it – and bring it home.
In the Bible it…Continue
