"For this reason, I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in Heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened [kratos] with might [dunamis] through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height-to know the…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.
THERE ARE THREE MINDSETS WE NEED TO CHANGE:…Continue

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

As Christians, we are to be "fed and led" to become His voice--fed by the Word and led by the Spirit. There are many lazy people in the Church and, for them, the easiest way to hear God is to be fed by someone who is "close" to God. Unfortunately, this mindset has crept into the Church.
The fact is, the only reason that it is important that we hear God speaking to us is so that we can become…Continue

"Once Jesus had finished teaching, He turned to Peter and instructed him to first “launch out into the deep” and second, “let down your nets for a catch” (see Luke 5:4). To this, Peter replied, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word, I will let down the net .”And when they did this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking. So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and…Continue

God's glory is what we are ultimately wanting to break into. We should want greater glory in our lives and IN OUR MINISTRY TO OTHERS; a glory that is carried out into the world. We are to live from glory to glory. It is an ever-increasing glory.
"But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the…Continue

God said to Zerubbabel, "...Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit..." (Zechariah 4:6,). And His message to us is the same.
Revival begins with repentance, and it begins with us. To repent is to "about face"; to turn the opposite way; to run from the flesh-exalting, death-empowering, grace-hindering pull of…Continue

One of the first signs of true Christian maturity is having our identity more in citizenship in heaven than our citizenship on the earth.
If our first thought, when asked who we are, is what we do for a living, then we are still married to the world more than to Christ, or at best we are still babes in Christ, regardless of how much…Continue

"Then Moses said, 'Now show me Your glory.' And the LORD said, 'I will cause all My goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim My name, the LORD, in your presence. I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. But,' he said, 'you cannot see My face, for no one may see Me and live.'
"Then the LORD said, 'There is…Continue

With the almost non-stop flow of information that is coming at us these days, it is more important than ever that we be intentional about what we focus on. Amidst this swirl of 24-hour-a-day input, it can be a battle to keep our eyes and hearts focused in faith on the good news of who our God is, our identity in Christ, and understanding our authority and our calling to advance His Kingdom in the earth.…Continue

2 Chronicles 16:9 - "For the eyes of the Lord run to and from throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him."
The eyes of the Lord are searching for those whose hearts are completely His. When God catches our attention and we focus upon Him, He will show…Continue

In Isaiah 60, we understand that darkness will cover the earth, and people will fall into deep darkness, but when we rise up and take action, then God's glory is seen on us, and nations will come to our Light, HIS LIGHT. God has a plan, but His plan involves us taking action and transitioning from being spectators to being participants in the greatest Spiritual outpouring and awakening this world has ever seen. As troubled times come, we are…Continue

"He then began to denounce the cities in which most of His miracles were done, because they did not repent" (Matthew 11:20). In anger He rebuked Chorazin, Bethsaida and Capernaum (Matthew 11:21); with tears, He cried out to Jerusalem (Luke 13:34). If He expected cities to repent in the first century, He expects cities today to repent as well.
"For if the MIRACLES had occurred in…Continue

The river of God is always moving, always changing, and we must change with it. If we stop changing...we're done! Think how many times you've read the Word and remarked, "Wow, I've never seen that before." Exactly. It was revelation for "today." We must be very careful to not become locked into a belief system that never changes. When we do, revelation is no longer revelation. Ask yourself if your capacity for the living Word is the same as it…Continue

In Philippians 3:5-10, Paul gives expression to the fact that there is much that can be apprehended and experienced beyond that which he had previously known.
"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 I…Continue

James 1:16-18 reminds us that the Father of heavenly lights gives only good and perfect gifts and that He is the God of truth:
"Don't be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind…Continue

God has a life for you that has been birthed right out of the atmosphere of Heaven. It holds your identity and PURPOSE and is the key to walking in the same measure that Jesus walked in. It's not about being special or called out more than anyone else. It's a matter of how you utilize your identity and the power of the Gospel.
Do we know who we are?…Continue

The calling on your life has made you a target. Indeed, the enemy is intensely jealous of the LOVE the Father has for you, and he hates you for having what he can never have. Yet, in the darkness of the night you've endured the enemy's hatred and now the sunrise on your trial has nearly dawned.
Awakening now, you realize that all along it was only the pruning of the Lord you've endured, and all the enemy has thrown…Continue

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." - Hebrews 11:1
The presence of the Holy Spirit teaches our spiritual eyes of faith to see this way into the invisible. God grants us visionary access to walk into a reality that is superior to the natural realm where we exist most of the time.…Continue
