  1. DAILY MEDITATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS - 356

    He has called us not to "wonder about the future," but to create it through the knowledge of His living Word and prayer! What our Father gives is access to the future right now. To bring manifestation is to pray and believe for the reality of God's Kingdom to manifest on earth. "Pray, then, in this way:.......on earth as it is in Heaven." - Matthew 6:9,10 Christ pours the limitless oil of the anointing in us so that we can shine and burn continually and perpetually with the glory and love...
  2. ORDINARY PEOPLE

    Why are we so lackadaisical in our search for God? One possible answer is that we have yet to experience the beauty and power of God's manifest presence. Therefore, we don't understand that the reward of our seeking is worth every bit of our effort, and more. "One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in His temple." - Psalm 27:4 Those who abide in Jesus...
  3. SOARING IN HIS PRESENCE

    When the Lord Jesus was on the cross, He had authority to come down if He so wished. By the same token, those who are crucified with the Lord can let their old man come down from the cross if they so choose. The best warfare to engage in against the devil is to magnify the Lord Jesus in your life. The Bible declares, "Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered..." Psalm 68:1. Worship is the spiritual equivalent of the power of magnification. When you begin to worship, you ascend to join...
  4. DAILY MEDITATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS - 353

    Faith is released by speaking words. Jesus encouraged us to speak to mountains or to whatever our problem is. "...For assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain..." - Matthew 17:20 You don't need to use your faith for every single need in life. You need to use your faith to believe that you are the righteousness of God in Christ, and it will cause all the blessing you seek to come after you and overtake you. (2 Corinthians 5:21) God wants...
  5. UPDRAFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

    Since the moment we first came to Christ, there has been an updraft of the Holy Spirit, a constant drawing from God lifting us upward toward the fullness of His Presence. Let's surrender to this wind of God and allow Him to carry us into our holy future (our DESTINY). The disciples did not just pray and sit around waiting for God to enter the "playing field" to convert the world on His own. They went out into the world so that the Holy Spirit might go into the World. "The Lord worked with...
  6. DAILY MEDITATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS - 352

    "You can be sure that the more we undergo sufferings for Christ, the more He will shower us with His comfort and encouragement." - 2 Corinthians 1:5 These sufferings are not sickness and poverty as some religious teaching suggest. These afflictions are described as the "fellowship of sufferings" that the believer will encounter for doing the will of God, or the sufferings brought on by one's allegiance to Jesus. "That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of...
  7. OUR BEST DAYS

    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, we're going to catch what we need to catch, even in some instances where...
  8. DAILY MEDITATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS - 351

    Your teenager needs to hear father pray. He needs to hear mother pray for him and for herself. He needs to know that his parents trust him to God. We must go on to maturity. We must set our vision on the PURPOSE (our DESTINY for which we have been made a new creation. "For all the promises of God in Christ are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us." - 2 Corinthians 1:20 There is a union between Christ and the Christian that is so deep, so pure, so sweet, so real, that the...
  9. HUNGER FOR GOD

    "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 death. A poverty of soul must eternally torment that man who is satisfied merely to reason about eternal life, while...
  10. MOVING INTO THE LIFE OF FAITH

    Hebrews 11:6 - "But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him." Throughout the Bible, the faith of the saints was never something passive -- but rather a faith of ACTION. If Abraham never acted on His faith, He would never have departed to the "land of milk and honey" or birthed a new nation. If Moses never acted on His faith, He would never have led the children of Israel out of...
  11. DAILY MEDITATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS - 350

    The Holy Spirit now lives in your inner man to strengthen you and help you to do what you could not do without Him. God's kingdom authority, dominion, and majesty should be reigning in every believer's inner man. "That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man.....that you may be filled with all the fullness of God." - Ephesians 3:16,19 In order to hear from God, you must be convinced that God is going to talk...
  12. RULE AND REIGN

    "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 jar and live life as usual. God's people were created to rule and reign, not to be defeated. He has plans for us to rule and reign with Him in...

    As God's people we learn to live on the basis of hearing God's voice and obeying His word. "The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority; but the Father who dwells in me does his works." - John 14:10 If we are "in Christ", we are moving with the most pressing speed, for we are "in" the most dynamic man who ever walked the earth. When He says to us, "Follow me", He is inviting us to a high-speed chase down the roads of our life. On that chase there is no rest except...
  14. DAILY MEDITATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS - 310

    Psalm 17:15 -- "As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness." Many read the Scriptures simply to reinforce their current beliefs. Although they read the entire Bible, their mind only sees certain doctrines. Instead of believing what they read, they merely read what they already believe. Rarely do they find new truths in the Word. Baptists see from their perspective, Pentecostals and charismatics each have theirs, while Catholics...
  15. DAILY MEDITATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS - 307

    Getting in touch with our destiny in Christ can have the single most powerful impact on our own life after coming to know the Lord, being born, and being baptized in His Spirit. All Christians are called to be witnesses, but we also have a calling in His Body that is more specific than that. The main factors that will lead to a revelation of our destiny and being prepared for it are the following: A. Resolving to do the Lord's will as the chief pursuit of our lives. 1. All Christians are...
