Mark 4:26-29, "This is what the Kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain--first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has…Continue

"Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee...." - 1 Timothy 4:14
For too long, Christians have been motivated by guilt, instead of responding to the unction of the Holy Spirit. As each of us yields to what God has CALLED us to be, then God will bring each part of our lives to…Continue

The Lord challenges many in coming out of familiar places into new territory. It is part of the reality of coming into that "Promised Land" (God's purpose for our life) that so many are hoping and praying for as Believers in Christ.
It is up to US to take that step of faith out of our familiar comfort zones and into that which we have never encountered before. We also determine when and how we access our promises by…

"Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance." - Psalm 89:15

There are many Scriptural benefits concerning what the Blood of Jesus has done for us. According to Revelation 12:11, "And they (the believers) overcame him (the accuser of the brethren) because of the Blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even to death." We overcome by testifying what the Blood of Jesus has accomplished. His triumph over the powers of…Continue

"Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert." - Isaiah 43:18-19 (NKJV)
When you go through transition, as Jesus did when going from the Jordan (baptism) to being drawn into the wilderness by the Spirit, it is a…Continue

"Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him." - James 1:2-5

"Surely the Lord God does nothing unless He reveals His secret counsel to His servants the prophets." - Amos 3:7
Along with timing, it is key to understand the role we play as workers in God's Kingdom to see prophecy come to pass. Without understanding that prophecy requires action on our part, we might become upset when a prophetic word seems unfulfilled.…Continue

All the prophets of old prophetic utterances came to a fullness of time juncture when the young virgin agreed with Heaven and answered, "Let it be according to your Word" (Luke 1:38). And the Word became flesh and dwelt among men and brought with Him the fullness of the Father's prosperity.
What the world calls "the Christmas Season" was not the birthing of Christ; He was…Continue

"Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel," which is translated, "God with us." Matthew 1:23
God sent the prophet Isaiah to King Ahaz (see Isaiah chapter 7) to tell him that God would protect them from the army that was coming against them. Scripture goes on to remind us of the Kingdom principle that is necessary to…Continue

As we are called to step out into areas that are beyond our comfort zone, we may feel as if we are floundering for a season.
Yet God has called us to walk in His peace and JOY and to BRING HIS KINGDOM TO EARTH in each situation. We could easily fall into discouragement if we do not stand in God's encouragement. And part of the way He fills and refreshes us is through His spirit of JOY. Joy in the midst of…Continue

Many feel as if they are up against a gate in their life and are desperate to see breakthrough. Your identity of being "in Christ" will set you up for breakthrough.
Hebrews 13:12 says, "And so Jesus also suffered outside the city gate to make the people holy through His own…

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. God…Continue

"So may all Your enemies perish, Lord! But may all who love You be like the sun when it rises in its strength..." - Judges 5:31
There is a rising coming for the Body of Christ – a rising within Him, in His ways and in His love to be free in Christ. We are rising up in the glory of the Son. A "rising" can also mean a revolution or revolt – it is time to rise up and push back the powers…

Hebrews 11:1-3 - "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the men of old gained approval. By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen."
Your persistence to stand in faith and release the prophetic decrees of Heaven is far more…Continue

Since the moment we first came to Christ, there has been an updraft of the Holy Spirit, a constant drawing from God lifting us upward toward…Continue

Our dreams are like planted seeds. In order to sprout, they must first fall lifeless from the tree, be planted in the ground, and wait for springtime to arrive when they will begin to bloom and grow. And just as the sun rises every morning, we can depend on God's love to shine down to bring life to our dreams. Just as the sunshine impacts all living things,…

This is an exhortation for us today!

The word consecrate, in…Continue
