"So Moses brought Israel from the Red Sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water." - Exodus 15:22
For many of us, we have experienced a wilderness while fulfilling God's purpose for our life. We feel lonely, barren, and unfruitful. We have been so dry and thirsty that we find ourselves crying out to God in desperation. Our…

Isaiah 52:1 "Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments..."
God wants us to be awakened to Who He is, His Person, His love and His Presence. In the Parables of Jesus we see how important it was to Him that we be awake, that we would not be caught by surprise. When we are awakened to His life, the reality of His Spirit is very tangible to us. We are called to live…Continue

Lord, I thank You for open heavens over my life--bringing release. Open the floodgates of heaven, Lord. Let Your healing rain fall, and water the spiritual ground around and beneath me, that I would yield forth increase and multiplication, that my life would produce fruit--abundant and sweet, and that Your Glory would flow uninhibited in and through me. I repent for the times I've settled for a predictable and limited lifestyle of compromise and irregularity,…Continue

Psalm 100:4,5 - "Enter His gates with thanksgiving And His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name For the LORD is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting And His faithfulness to all generations."
Satan’s plan is to make us somehow accept, either through our upbringing, our experiences or through Church dogma that certain portions of the life of Christ are untrue or not valid in our…

Matthew 9:37,38 - "Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest."
The Greek word translated "send out" is "ekballo", which at the root level means to "drive out." "Ballo" is where we derive the English word for "ballistic." There is force and sense of urgency, a driving out, a thrusting out of laborers into His harvest.
We see this…Continue

Isaiah 55:6 - "Seek the Lord while you can find Him. Call on Him now while He is near."
We are instructed to seek the Lord while He is near. We are reminded that we only find the Lord when we search with all our heart (see Jeremiah 29:12-13). If we make seeking Him and His kingdom our top priority He will take care of everything else (see Matthew…Continue

Ephesians 6:12 -- "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places."
The reality is that we're in battle. We're being prevailed against. Some of us are "losing" in the fight against sin and sickness, disease and death. Some of us are losing the battle for our kids to know Jesus. Some of us are battling…Continue

"When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them. I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and…
