  1. UNDERSTANDING OUR MOTIVE

    Luke 11:38 - "When the Pharisee saw it, he was surprised that He had not first ceremonially washed before the meal." If we are still "doing" acts of holiness to get God to move in our lives, then we are still operating under a "law" mentally that is not faith (Galatians 3:12). The legalist thinks, 'I can GET God to heal me by confessing "by His stripes I am healed.'" The person who understands God's grace will not confess God's word with the motive of trying to GET God to heal him but...

    2 Corinthians 6:4 - "In all things we commend ourselves as ministers of God; in much patience, in tribulations, in needs, in distresses." The tribulations of which Paul spoke are not the tribulations of various diseases. He suffered tribulations with the people as Jesus did. There can be man tribulations within our Christ walk as we feel that our spiritual influence is not bearing fruit in the lives of others. May God give us the realization that we are so joined to fellow Believers that...
  3. DEALING WITH OPPOSITION

    Colossians 1:26-27 - "the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory." God is taking you from GLORY TO GLORY. God is LIFTING you out of a whole way of living that you've become way too used to. New blueprints and VISION are coming to you! You are in a new, unknown era and God is giving you...

    Will You Let His Peace Have Its Work? "Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful." - John 14:27 Will you receive it? Will you let it melt away every worry, every fear, and every stress? Will you let His peace come in, to pour over you oil of healing – into your mind, into your body, into your spirit, into your soul? Will you let His peace open and close doors? For even when a door is...

    Colossians 3:3,4 - "for you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God...Christ, who is your life." It requires time and thought to grasp the truth that the life Christ lives in the Father is the same life He lives in us. Christ does not live one life in the Father and another in you. His explicit words are, "Because I live, you also will live. On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you" (John 14:19,20). As Christ is in the Father, so...

    Isaiah 43:18,19 - "Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland." God is resetting us in the present to create a new history under the guidance of God's Spirit. We can too easily drift away from God's purpose for our life and then stall. We have not been called to live in a static representation of Kingdom life. Just before each new season, God...
  7. 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....
  8. ENCOUNTERING GOD

    Matthew 22:29 - "You are wrong because you know neither the scriptures nor God's power." In this passage Jesus rebukes the Pharisees for their ignorance of the scriptures and God's power. What was the cause? They didn't allow the scriptures to lead them to God. They didn't understand......not really understand. The word "know" in this passage speaks of "personal experience." They tried to learn apart from such an experience. Their study didn't lead them to an encounter with God. It became...

    Philippians 2:15 - "We are seen as lights in the world." We are the light of the world. We have taken Jesus' place. His Life in us is the source of Light. Light means Wisdom and ability to do things. He has actually come into us and lives in us and through us. We have been translated into the kingdom of the Son of His Love, or in other words, into the very Family of God. We have become partakers of His Divine Nature. The same Life that was in the Son of God is in us. The same Light that He...

    "And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, he heareth us: and if we know that he hears us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him." -- 1 John 5:14,15 You cannot ask with confidence until there is a perfect union between you and God, as there was always perfect union between God and Jesus. The moment you pray you find that the heavens are opened -- having a fidelity and confidence to believe that He...
  11. FOCUSING ON JESUS' OBEDIENCE

    2 Corinthians 10:5 - "Casting down arguments, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;" Have you ever felt condemned because of the bad thoughts you have had? You may have felt that you had to confess every one of them and seek God's forgiveness. But that is not what God's Word exhorts us to do. God wants us to bring "every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ." Whose obedience...

    2 Corinthians 12:9 - "...My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness...” It is wrong for any Christian to attempt to live the Christian life. And we are not asked to do so. The Word of the Lord says "it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me" (Galatians 2:20). This is the secret of living the Christian life. Defeat is not caused by less work, but by too much work. When we are working, God's grace cannot come to us. Likewise, in our working too much,...
  13. SPIRITUAL BATTLE STRATEGIES

    "Prepare for battle! Soldiers at attention! Present arms! Advance! Turn your shovels into swords; turn your hoes into spears. Let the weak one throw out his chest and say, 'I'm tough, I'm a fighter.'" Joel 3:9-10 (The Message) The call to arms to pray has never changed since the prophet Joel wrote these words. Today, with all the turmoil in the world and in our lives, we should consider a powerful prayer strategy. It is in prayer that we probe spiritual realities, communicate with God,...

    Ephesians 6:11 - "Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil." In Ephesians 6:10-18, the passage on spiritual warfare, FOUR times the Holy Spirit tells us to stand. Yet, many Christians are focusing on wrestling their way to victory. You are already on victory ground (1 Corinthians 3:21,23). So when the devil attacks you by saying, "Look at that small sum in your bank account! How are you going to pay the bills?" stand your ground....
  15. PARTAKER OF HIS SUFFERINGS

    Luke 9:57,58 - "As they were walking along the road, a man said to him, "I will follow you wherever you go. Jesus replied, 'Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.'" The reason why Jesus had nowhere to lay His head was because of persecution. The Samaritans, because of a religious prejudice, had just refused Him hospitality, and a place to stay as He journeyed to Jerusalem. Persecution is part of the cost of living a Christian life. Jesus was...
