Matthew 6:9 - Pray, therefore, like this: Our Father Who is in heaven, hallowed (kept holy) be Your name.

Deuteronomy 30:19 - I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life.
He was saying, "Stop procrastinating and hoping you will eventually get somewhere in life. Decide whether you're going to get a curse or a blessing. Decide whether you're going to die or live."

Many people know what it means to have "common sense", which is sound, practical judgment. "Christian sense", on the other hand, involves seeing adverse circumstances through the eyes of faith and exercising your God-given…Continue

False foundations, paradigms, illegitimate structures, systems, and limitations must bow to the Father's Kingdom. His Kingdom is perpetually coming to earth, and one day will fill the earth in Father's glory, as the water covers the sea.
The Kingdom of God is within us, and whether we are noticing it or not, will continue to break through on earth as it is in Heaven. The shaking must…

John 3:27,30 - John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. He must increase, but I must decrease.
Some Christians say that they were trying to decrease so the Lord could increase in their life. This seems noble, but it is not biblical, and is actually the opposite of what John the Baptist said,
If we try to decrease before…

l Chronicles 14:2 - And David perceived that the Lord had confirmed him king over Israel, for his kingdom was lifted up on high, because of his people Israel.

Romans 12:2 - "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind."
That word transformed is translated from the Greek word from which we get the term "metamorphosis." It's used in Scripture in two other places - when Jesus was transfigured on the Mount as He spoke with Moses and Elijah - and in 2…Continue

Luke 4:28,29 -- "For which of you, wishing to build a farm building, does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see whether he as sufficient means to finish it?"
Planning is faith. God has a plan for us but he doesn't plan for us.
Planning pulls the promises out of eternity and puts them into time.

We often live our lives without experiencing the power of hope because we fail to realize what is available…Continue

Ephesians 6:10 - "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might."
The Greek word "Kratos," relates to God's manifested dominion and therefore…
