  1. DAILY MEDITATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS - 205

    Hebrews 12:3 - "Consider Jesus that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds." THE SPIRIT OF WEARINESS IS TRYING TO WORK ITS WAY INTO OUR LIVES THESE DAYS THROUGH ALL THE PRESSURE AND BAD NEWS THAT SURROUNDS US. IT'S WORKING TO GET OUR EYES OFF THE WORD OF GOD BY BOMBARDING US WITH NEGATIVE FORCES. IT'S TRYING TO GET US TO LOOK DOWN AT DEFEAT INSTEAD OF UP AT JESUS. JESUS SAID IN MARK 4 THAT WHEN THE CARES OF THIS WORLD ENTER INTO...
  2. Ten Power Exhortations - July 9, 2018

    Today is the day to have a total change of heart and mind. It is time to renew and to reframe your mindset and language to speak the language of Heaven. Colossians 3:1 - "If you then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above...." We have moved into our land of promise. Let's use the language of our new location. Let's slay every opposing giant that comes to lie against our true identity. Ephesians 2:5,6 - "...He has quickened us together with Christ, and has raised us up...
  3. RESPONDING TO PROPHETIC WORDS

    "Surely the Lord God does nothing unless He reveals His secret counsel to His servants the prophets." - Amos 3:7 Along with timing, it is key to understand the role we play as workers in God's Kingdom to see prophecy come to pass. Without understanding that prophecy requires action on our part, we might become upset when a prophetic word seems unfulfilled. Disappointment can stir up questions like, "Did I hear God?" or, "Did I miss what God was trying to say?" We may even become jaded and...
  4. DAILY MEDITATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS - 204

    Exodus 33:18 - "I beseech thee, show me thy glory." Exodus 34:6,7 - "The Lord passed before him, and proclaimed, 'The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin."' WHAT IS THE SINGLE, MOST OUTSTANDING THING ABOUT GOD? WHAT'S HIS MOST IMPORTANT CHARACTERISTIC? SOME WOULD SAY IT'S HIS POWER - OTHERS, HIS HOLINESS. BUT GOD HIMSELF WOULD GIVE A DIFFERENT ANSWER. THE WORD...
  5. DAILY MEDITATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS - 203

    Acts 1:4,8 - "He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem but to wait for what the Father had promised. But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you." This power came through an encounter with God. Some because of their fear of error, have said it's improper to seek for an experience with God. For decades the church has been guilty of creating doctrine to justify their lack of power, instead of crying out to God until He changed them. The...
  6. Ten Power Exhortations - July 4, 2018

    All things belong to you, all things are yours, and you can do all things because hidden treasure of wisdom, knowledge, and revelation are in Jesus Christ, and fully accessible to you. JESUS SAID: "If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.' But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not...
  7. EMBRACING TRANSITION

    "The Lord blessed the latter part of Job's life more than the former part. He had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen and a thousand donkeys." - Job 42:12 NIV From time to time we actually have to come out of one project completely before God can transition us to the next assignment. Something that closes in our lives can make us feel like we are out of control, going to shipwreck, or worse yet, never able to rebound. Sometimes our calendars, schedules,...
  8. DAILY MEDITATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS - 202

    Ephesians 1:5 - "Having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will." CHRISTIANS ARE THE TRUE ROYALTY ON THE EARTH AND ARE HONORED BY THE HEAVENLY HOST FAR ABOVE ANY EARTHLY KINGS OR PRESIDENTS. THIS IS THE GOOD PLEASURE OF HIS WILL. NOTHING WILL EVER BE STRONG ENOUGH TO THWART HIS WILL, AND THEREFORE OUR INHERITANCE IN HIM IS MORE SECURE THAN ANY EARTHLY POSITION EVER COULD BE. EVEN WHEN WE WERE YET SINNERS, HE BOUGHT US FOR A...
  9. DAILY MEDITATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS - 201

    John 1:51 - "Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see the heavens opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man." Jesus is Jacob's ladder which we ascend and descend upon. It is our calling in Christ to both go higher and go lower. We are called to ascend into the heavenly places and be seated with Him there, and at the same time descend to the earth with the evidence of heaven's reality. As children of the King, we are members of the greatest aristocracy in the...
  10. HEALING BREAKTHROUGHS

    "And these signs shall follow them that believe;.....they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover." - Mark 16:17,18 One of the ways the enemy tries to ravage and destroy the Body of Christ is through sicknesses and infirmities. Behind these attacks is a strategic plan of the enemy to stop DESTINIES from being fulfilled. The unrelenting attacks have caused some to experience hope deferred. Many faithful Believers are crying out to the Lord as they pray for breakthroughs. The Lord...
  11. DAILY MEDITATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS - 199

    Matthew 24:12 - "And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold." Satan wants you to become the temperature of the culture that surrounds you, a believer bound by a stone cold heart. By exposure to hardness and darkness in the times that we live in, our love and passion will begin to cool by degrees. When you see churches and individuals who do not have the energy to reach out, it's an indication that their love has grown cold. In Numbers 16:37, the Lord told Moses...
  12. RELEASE YOUR NET

    "You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing...And, He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him." - Psalm 145:16, 19 NKJV. You can trust the Lord God. LAUNCH INTO THE DEEP In Luke 5, we read the story of Simon Peter fishing. He had been up all night fishing and had caught nothing. NOTHING! He, a professional fisherman, had worked all night for nothing. His friends were into fishing. He lived in a fishing village. If anyone could make a catch, surely it was Peter....
  13. What Was God doing Before He Created The World?

    Psalm 90:2 - "Before the mountains were born or You brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting You are God." This question is one of the many mysteries that man tries to figure out. While we cannot know in full detail everything God was doing before creation, the Bible does give us some hints. One thing we need to make known is that God was not created. No other higher being created God. God is the "I Am" (Exodus 3:14) and there is no other God besides Him (Isaiah 45:5)....
  14. DAILY MEDITATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS - 198

    Acts 26:16 - "But rise and stand on your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you." Paul knew that King Agrippa's dad (King Agrippa I) was responsible at that time for the execution of James, one of the 12 disciples. Yet Paul made sure the truth was on trial, rather than His personal safety or self-esteem. Like Paul we must resist people-pleasing. Once...
  15. DAILY MEDITATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS - 197

    John 1:16 - "And of his fulness have all we received and grace for grace." Most Christians believe God can do anything but experience very little. They believe that God can release His power in answer to prayer, but whether something comes to pass or not depends on their performance (ie. being holy, speaking right, studying the word. tithing, avoiding strife, etc). This view short-circuits God's power because their focus is on what they need to do instead of what Christ has already done....
