Devotional

  1. SEEING THROUGH JESUS’ EYES

    Hebrews 13:5 - "He has said, 'I will never leave you nor forsake you.'” When you fall don't waste your time trying to figure everything out. Your understanding will always be twisted when you are depressed and you will never see truth from that place. Depression is the deception that comes from seeing the world from your perspective. Truth comes from seeing the world through Jesus' eyes where He sits at the right hand of the Father. Those who abide in His presence will say "the whole earth...
  2. EXPECTING GOD-EMPOWERED BOLDNESS

    "that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, that the Christ may dwell, through faith, in your hearts, being rooted and founded in love, - Ephesians 3:16,17 As believers, we are rooted and grounded in His magnificent love (Ephesians 3:17). We have courage, the depth of which is confidence in the Lord. Today we declare that we will "Trust in the Lord with all our heart and lean not unto our own...
  3. THE SPIRIT OF WISDOM AND REVELATION

    Isaiah 54:2 - “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; do not hold back; lengthen your ropes and strengthen your stakes." When you don't think there is more to where you currently are in God's purpose for your life, you become limited. You think this right here -- all I see -- is it. This type of thinking keeps you from exploring and discovering. It keeps you from stretching yourself and dreaming about other possibilities. If you want to...
  4. UNDERSTANDING OUR DUAL CITIZENSHIP

    Hebrews 4:16 - "So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most." When we sin, we don't need to punish ourselves, because Jesus already took our punishment and He now offers us His mercy. He is extending his mercy to you right now, but you must believe it and receive it in order for it to benefit you. Don't turn away because you know you don't deserve it. Receive it, repenting toward heaven,...
  5. UNDERSTANDING OUR DUAL CITIZENSHIP

    Philippians 3:20 - "For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;" As Christians, we are wonderfully privileged to have dual citizenship. We are citizens of earth and citizens of Heaven all at the same time! Many believe we receive our Heavenly citizenship only after we die. The Bible, however, illustrates how connected to Heaven we are while living on earth. For example: • When we pray on earth, our spirit manifests in Heaven before...
  6. CONSUMED IN HIM

    "...Who of us can dwell with the consuming fire? Who of us can dwell with everlasting burning? Those who walk righteously and speak what is right....their bread will be supplied, and water will not fail them. Your eyes will see the King in His beauty and view a land that stretches afar." - Isaiah 33:14-17 The "everlasting burning" in this verse is not Hell, but rather is speaking of God. God is an all-consuming fire, and we are to become ignited so that we are fully consumed in Him. We are...
  7. MAKING KNOWN THE MYSTERY

    "Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him." - Mark 11:23 As you battle against an ungodly problem (ungodly situations could be a lingering sickness, infirmity, sin, fear, doubt, unbelief, anger, poverty, disunity, etc. anything in your life that is contrary to the Word of God) in your life, why not get really involved and roar at it?...
  8. BURING FOR HIM

    "For our God is a consuming fire." - Hebrews 12:29 God's voice dwells in the midst of the fire! Fire consumes the sacrifice, and in Romans 12:1-2 we are told to surrender our bodies and renew our minds. As we lay our flesh upon His altar, we are consumed! Mark 9:49 - "For everyone will be salted with fire." We are called to burn for Him and be voices of awakening. The Father desires to set regions ablaze with holy fire, but it will take surrendered ones who have been in His presence and...
  9. UNDERSTANDING MY POTENTIAL

    Genesis 1:26 - "Then God said, 'Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.'" God created you and commanded you to dominate the earth. God wouldn't have made that demand if you couldn't do it. You have the potential to dominate the earth because God placed within every human being the ability to dominate...
  10. UNDERSTANDING OUR ONENESS

    1 John 2:27 - "As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you," According to the scriptures, before you were born again, you were without the Anointed One (Jesus). If you were without the Anointed One you were also without the anointing. But now, since you are one with Christ, you are in the anointing of Jesus. The anointing is available to you in every situation you face to destroy every yoke of bondage. The anointing of God is God on flesh doing those things only God...
  11. WALKING IN OUR TRUE IDENTITY

    John 14:30 - ".......for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me." Pauperhood is relegated to the children of a lesser god. It is the condition of slaves who have yet to discover their freedom on the other side of the river of baptism and find themselves still captured by the dark prince of torture and torment. He is the one who assigns them to a life of poverty, pain, and depression through a diabolical play of illusion. He hopes to conceal their true identity forever....
  12. Hebrews 11:6 NIV

    "And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him." Have you ever tried to be pleasing to someone you love, especially when you know that "someone" loves you very much, and you wouldn't dare hurt him or her? At one point in this love affair you keep wondering what else you could do to prove your faithfulness to that loved one, as if everything you have done was not enough. The...
  13. MANIFESTING A RESURRECTION MINDSET

    We develop a resurrection mindset, not just the future resurrection but in our thinking now. There will be an ultimate resurrection and glorification. There is a resurrection power working in us now. Our spirit has been raised from the dead already (see Romans 6:3). "And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in us." - (Romans 8:11 ). The Bible says we...
  14. Matthew 28:19 NIV

    "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit..." A song from Matthew West depicts a conversation between the author of the song and God, where the author says, "God, why don't you do something?", and God says, "I did; I created you." Many times we want to see God work as we idly stand by and watch life unfold around us. After all, it's God's job to do as He pleases, and therefore, things are out of our...
  15. TIME TO ARISE

    "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 of darkness trying to encroach and violate our lives! We are being called to rise up and take our places...
