You know there are things you are doing now that are temporary. You are doing them only until you find the thing God wants you to do, the real work you were meant to do. When the fire reaches your core, you will trash all the vestiges of harmless, powerless living.
Our best days are yet to come! God sent us to do a job and we're going to reap because He is the one who sent us to do it! When we launch out at His Word,…Continue

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." - Hebrews 11:1
Faith is stronger than belief. To believe is to give intellectual assent; to have faith is to be inseparable from the object of your devotion. Belief can be changed or lost by a more persuasive argument. True faith is so much a part of the person it can only be taken by…Continue
"Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you...." - 2 Timothy 1:6
Every believer holds a position of authority that comes with God-given talents or gifts and is hidden in Christ Jesus, above all demonic authority. So why are so many of us INEFFECTIVE?
God didn't save and deliver you so you could preserve His gift in a sealed…Continue

"As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for You. O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?" - Psalm 42:1,2
The heart cry of David is the entreaty of every true worshiper, Where is God? Why can't I find Him? How can I build a road to where He is so that I may be with Him?

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…

Jesus said, in effect, 'I am the temple of the new dispensation. I am going to take the place of this old temple and I am going to be ALL that…Continue
We as kings and priests in God's kingdom are the anointed ones, the sons and daughters of fresh oil, endued with gifts of power, strength, and grace to enable us to accomplish the WORK we're called to (our destiny).
"You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only." - James 2:24
Jesus is not looking at our intentions, wishes,…Continue
The PURITY God requires from us is impossible for us. We must allow Him to produce it in us. PURITY produces in us godliness when we consistently sit at the feet of Jesus.
"...beholding the glory of the Lord, are being changed into His likeness ....." - 2 Corinthians 3:18

Many Believers love on people by telling them how precious they are, help them out with things they need doing, and even say a prayer to bless them but never actually preach the Gospel to them. They try to explain that doing acts of love is synonymous with preaching the Gospel and that they can preach with actions rather than words.
WE MUST PREACH THE…
What happens in meditation is that we create the emotional and spiritual space which allows Christ to construct an inner sanctuary in the heart.
Salvation is more than a legal exchange affecting our position before God. Salvation also includes the exchange of deep loving affections and adoration. God first communicates His enjoyment, longing, and affections for us and, in turn, we respond in a similar…Continue
"And the sons of the prophets said to Elisha, 'See now, the place where we dwell with you is too small for us. Please, let us go to the Jordan, and let every man take a beam from there, and let us make there a place where we may dwell.' So he answered, 'Go.' Then one said, 'Please consent to go with your servants.' And he answered, 'I will go.' So he went with them. And when they came to the Jordan, they cut down trees. But as one was cutting down a…Continue
Matthew 14:28-31 -- 28 Peter said to Him, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” 29 And He said, “Come!” And Peter got out of the boat, and walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But seeing the wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!” 31 Immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and took hold of him, and *said to him,…Continue
