Discipleship Equipping

  1. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY – November 30, 2020

    Your longing for heaven is good because it is an extension of your yearning for Jesus. Many Christians have misunderstood this word hope, believing that it denotes wishful thinking. Nothing could be farther from the truth! The phrase “hope of heaven” highlights the benefits you can enjoy even while remaining on earth – as you overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. This hope keeps you spiritually alive during dark times of adversity; it brightens your path and heightens your...
  2. Seeking Communion – November 28, 2020

    What would you do with the might of His Spirit? Would you allow it to flow out of you? Would you allow it to change you, and raise you up in His own glory? Do not let man cause you to fall, to slumber, or to come halfheartedly before His throne. But press forward, and come in boldly, for you have an appointment through His Blood. Let His Blood come and transfuse back to you the might of His Spirit, so you too can do signs and wonders, and come to the understanding of who you are, and who...
  3. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - November 27, 2020

    Focus on Jesus -- Immanuel. If you live on the surface of life by focusing on everchanging phenomena, you will find yourself echoing the words of Solomon: "Meaningless! Meaningless! Everything is meaningless!" Live in collaboration with Him is the way to discover His purpose for your life. Begin each day alone with Him, so that you can experience the reality of His Presence. Meditation: His final statement just before He ascended into heaven was: 'Surely I am with you...
  4. CHRIST OUT OF US

    Colossians 1:27 - "To them, God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory." The mystery is that Christ is in you. That is your hope of glory. This suggests, then, that our task is not to get Christ into us, but out of us. What God sees when He looks at you is Christ. Jesus came to show us what Christ looks like when He takes on human form. But it is Christ that God's looking at. God sees Christ in you. That's...
  5. SOLDIERS OF THE CROSS

    Luke 9:23 - "If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me." Spiritual storms, winds, and billows will blow into our lives, pulling us this way and that. Sometimes, in the face of winds and danger, we know there is a place of safety in God, but still we don't fly to that safe place in Him. Instead, we fly away, resisting the wisdom that tells us to fly to Him. Why do we all seem to do this? Because we all know in our spirits what flying...
  6. TUNING IN TO GOD'S VOICE

    Jesus said, "Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear" (Mark 4:9). He also said that His sheep hear His voice (John 10:27). Not hearing the Father speak, not understanding the voice of the Holy Spirit, is the root of many of life's problems. If we would only linger a little longer in His voice, then perhaps we would live great lives of blessing and purpose that yields fruit for the Kingdom instead of frustration. REMOVING THE BLOCKAGES -- WHAT KEEPS YOU FROM HEARING? There are blockages...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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,...
  11. 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...
  12. A TIME TO ACCELERATE

    "If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses? If you stumble in safe country, how will you manage in the thickets by the Jordan?" - Jeremiah 12:5 NIV Have you been stumbling? Have you been stumbling with the footmen? Well the Lord is wanting to upgrade you to the horses. It's time for you to compete with the horses! The Lord is moving you up from running with the footmen to now racing with the horses. God is about to bring you up to the...
  13. WE ARE NEVER SATISFIED

    Philippians 3:16 - "I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." Paul spoke about the desire to attain. There is no standing still. We are renewed by the Spirit. We never get into a new place until we come out of the old one (Genesis 12:1-4). We must see revelation of God's purpose for our life and learn about who we are in Christ and our right standing with God. We can never be satisfied to stay where we are spiritually, for the truth continues to...
  14. UNLOCKING THE POWER OF GRACE

    Ephesians 2:8 - "For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God." Paul says that grace saves us "through faith." Faith unlocks the power of grace and releases it to function in our world--and faith itself is another gift of God. The difference between both gifts are, the grace-gift must be activated by the faith-gift. WE MUST: 1. Believe that God is "rich in mercy". 2. We must accept as true that God loves us with "great love." 3. We must...
  15. DRAWING SOULS INTO THE KINGDOM

    James 3:17 - "But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy." As we speak the tender mercies of the Word over a problem, our faith begins to rise up within us. We then release words of faith and plant seeds of power. These seeds then begin to grow up and become greater than the problems. They begin to bear fruit -- fruit of deliverance, healing, miracles, love, joy, and peace. Souls are drawn into...
