Dear Heavenly Father, arouse my inner man to press in to You out of a place of desiring to be in your presence. Awaken my ears to hear your voice. Stir me up, hover over me and carry me on your wings. (Deuteronomy 32:11)
Dear Lord, initiate hunger in me as you stir up my spirit, and then I respond by calling out to You. You answer me by showing me great and hidden inaccessible things I did not know. (Jeremiah…Continue

We have recited it in private and also prayed it publicly in unison with others; we have even sung it in reverence on select Sunday mornings. It's been a familiar prayer at somber cultural events.
What was in Jesus' heart when He gave His disciples the words to "The Lord's Prayer?"
Remember, they had asked Him, "Lord, teach us to pray" (Luke 11:1). Contrary to its most typical…Continue

Revelation 1:11,12 - "Then I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Man, clothed with a garment down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band".
Here we see Jesus in the midst of the seven golden lamps.
The lampstands are allegorical…Continue

2 Corinthians 11:3 -- "But I fear...your minds may be corrupted from the simplicitity that is in Christ."
The problem is that we mistakenly strive for information when in reality we need revelation.
Ephesians 1:17,18 -- "That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being…Continue

Intimacy with God begins when we radically pursue Him with our whole heart. King David wrote, "When You said, 'Seek My face,' my heart said to You, 'Your face, O Lord, I shall seek'" (Psalms 27:8). God invites us in…Continue

Hebrews 10:12,14 -- But this man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God....For by one offering He hath perfected forever them that are sanctified.
God see us with no flaw, spot or imperfection, so we honor His Word and the finished work of Jesus by saying "Amen!"
To see ourselves as being far from perfect is not modesty, but a failure to understand…Continue

The Church will begin to take on more of a "military mentality" in the coming times. We are called to be an army, and in many ways we will start to reflect this in a much more serious and focused demeanor in the leadership and the people. There is something about conflict that does focus our senses. We have been in a war against darkness of the most desperate kind for the whole history of the Church, but not all seem to understand this or live as they would if they did understand it. This,…Continue

Psalm 13:1 -- How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide your face from me?
Believers want to know God. God's wisdom is to let us 'taste' dryness that we might become desperate enough to seek for living water.
Many misinterpret the dryness and become so discouraged that they stop seeking God altogether and even stop attending church. But God desires that, in our…Continue

1Peter 2:5 - Come and, like living stones, be yourselves built into a spiritual house, for a holy, dedicated, consecrated priesthood, to offer up those spiritual sacrifices that are acceptable and pleasing to God through Jesus Christ.
Colossians 1:27 - To whom God was pleased to make known how great for the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you , the hope of glory.
When I realize that I am the House of God,…Continue

As I seek You dear heavenly Father, You are equipping me to operate in the fullness of Your holy presence. The rivers will be loosed in me, toward me, for me, and through me. My intimacy and communion with You will reveal the seven fold operation of the Holy Spirit. You are uncapping the rivers of Your manifest presence: the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord. You…Continue
