Colossians 1:25 - "I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the Word of God..."
The word "stewardship" in the Greek is oikonomia. It is a word related to the stewardship and management of God's economy. For those chosen to be born and live in these fullness of times – in the "Day of His Power" –…

"What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him" - (1 Corinthians 2:9).
God wants to work through you in ways that would confound your mind if you saw them in advance. His plans for us are beyond anything we could imagine. He created us to fill an important role in His great plan for the ages; that of revealing Himself to…

"That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable to His death...not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that…

Matthew 12:38-40 38Then some of the scribes and Pharisees said to Him, “Teacher, we want to see a sign from You.” 39But He answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation craves for a sign; and yet no sign will be given to it but the sign of Jonah the prophet; 40for just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

It is easy to go to sleep reviewing negative ideas and pictures in our mind and wake up in the morning with a poisoned and negative spirit instead of falling asleep loving and receiving from Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
CONTINUOUSLY DECLARE GOD'S WORDS
We declare truth over any negative circumstance in our lives and we…

As we begin to see NEW growth spring forth in what was previously considered "hard places", doors connected to the ways of man begin to be shut and new doors that are connected and hinged upon the ways of God begin to open.

"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." Isaiah…

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
As sons and daughters of the King, we have been given authority to pray Heaven's blessings to earth.
It is God's desire to bless us and for us to witness and "see" His promises manifest.
Just as Jeremiah was given the ability to "see" his new season (see Jeremiah 1:4-12), we are present-day Jeremiahs – having our eyes opened to understand and know all that…Continue

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" which means "To break out." In the…

The very first miracle of Jesus turning water into wine in John 2 provides some clues as to how we might access the reality of what we have read and studied in His Word.
There was a wedding in Cana of Galilee. Jesus was there and a need arose. Jesus was asked, and He responded by turning the water into wine. He thus openly revealed His glory for the first time in public. This miracle opened the flow…

The tendency to embrace the concept of God being an angry Father is done in equal proportion to a person's inability to demonstrate His power. There is a connection between our belief system and what actually flows through us. If we don't see Jesus' life as the ultimate illustration of the will of God, we will continually undermine our ability to display it.
The Holy Spirit always wants to demonstrate what God says.…Continue
