Spiritual Growth

  1. Don't give up, You have a reason to keep on living...

    Do you feel like you can't go on? There are times when we have felt that today would be our last, thinking tomorrow would never come. Anxieties of Life can weigh heavy on our Mental Health. Would you believe that you can find the Answers in the Bible to WHY you feel the way you do? Please read the following scriptures. (2 Timothy 3:1-5) Did you notice the first verse reads, '...in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here'? This allotment of time is a Conclusion of a...
  2. COMMISSIONED FOR GLORY

    Zechariah 9:12,14 - "Return to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope even today I declare that I will restore double to you......The Lord will be seen over them, and His arrow will go forth like lightning." Many believers – especially young people, ask about commissioning -- they want to know who should commission them, when they should be commissioned, and, spiritually speaking, are they already commissioned? The truth is, it's God that actually commissions His people. And when God opens...
  3. ENGAGING OUR HEART AND MIND

    Psalm 1:2,3 - "in His law he MEDITATES day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper." There are specifically three areas of meditation that we can engage in as Believers so that our heart and mind will be captured in the glory of Who God is. These areas include the Word of God, the voice of God, and the testimonies of God. 1. The Word of God: – Cleanses,...
  4. EMPOWERED IN MINISTRY

    The early Church did something that few do today or even know about—they ministered to the Lord. Salvation is more than a legal exchange affecting our position before God. Salvation also includes the exchange of deep loving affections and adoration. God first communicates His enjoyment, longing, and affections for us and, in turn, we respond in a similar way. If you want to hear from God you must sit at His feet. To effectively minister to others you must first minister to the Lord. When...
  5. Scripture Of The Day - AWAKENED TO HIS SPIRIT

    "Jesus said to them, 'My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I, too, am working.'' - John 5:17 Because we are so prone to neglecting and forgetting about the needs of other people, we think that God is capable of being slothful toward us. And so we accuse Him of neglecting us when circumstances become painful, or simply not to our liking. Isn't that the way our lowly, self-centered nature works? When we are awakened in the Spirit, we see that God never sleeps (Psalm...
  6. SPIRITUAL DROWSINESS

    "Awake, sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you" (Ephesians 5:14). Just because we walk and talk does not mean we are truly awake. Zechariah was not sleeping when an angel roused him "as a man who is awakened from his sleep" (Zechariah 4:1). Perhaps we too need to be shaken from our slumber to seek and possess the purpose of God for our life! Strikingly, in spite of all the signs, wonders, and warnings announcing that we are truly in the last days, Jesus also said...
  7. Scripture Of The Day - UNDERSTANDING WHO WE ARE IN CHRIST

    "Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name!... Who forgives all your iniquities. Who heals all your diseases." - Psalm 103: 1,3 God doesn't give people disease any more than we would give our own children poison. People think that God causes all the disasters and tragedies and yet when Jesus walked the earth, He never once called for a disaster or tragedy. He always brought healing and quieted every life-threatening storm. If we're not believing the truth...
  8. WASHING WITH WATER BY THE WORD

    "Well-formed love banishes fear. Since fear is crippling, a fearful life -- fear of death, fear of judgment -- is one not yet fully formed in love." -- 1 John 4:18 The Message Stop staring into that hole of loss, and ask for a fresh revelation of His love to push out the fear and crushing disappointment. Stop waiting for people, movements, or organizations to repent and come to the Light. Stop trying to figure it all out, losing your peace and joy because someone you love doesn't "get...
  9. WASHING WITH WATER BY THE WORD

    John 13:8 -- Peter said to Him, "You shall never wash my feet!" Jesus answered him, "If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me." Peter could not imagine Jesus wanting to wash his feet -- his shocked reaction being "Lord, how can You wash my feet!" Jesus says to him: "Peter, if I don't wash your feet, you have no part with Me." What the Lord was actually saying to Peter was, "Peter you cannot walk together with Me in ministry, in service, and in effectiveness if you don't let Me wash...
  10. Scripture of The Day - STEPPING INTO THE FULL STATURE OF CHRIST

    Scripture of The Day - STEPPING INTO THE FULL STATURE OF CHRIST “Rise up and shine, for your light has come. The shining-greatness of the Lord has risen upon you. For see, darkness will cover the earth. Much darkness will cover the people. But the Lord will rise upon you, and His shining-greatness will be seen upon you. Nations will come to your light. And kings will see the shining-greatness of the Lord on you." Isaiah 60:1-3 "Those who are wise will shine as bright as the sky, and those...
  11. Scripture Of The Day – EXPECTING THE GOODNESS OF GOD

    "SURELY your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life... " (Ps. 23:6 NIV). If you set your heart on pursuing the goodness of God, you're always headed in the right direction. POSITIONING OUR HEART Moses knew that really well. Moses prayed that he would know God, to know His ways, to know His presence, and to know His glory! And because his heart was postured in the right place, requesting for the right things, praying for the right priorities, the Lord then promised to...
  12. DUNAMIS WORKS

    John 5:19,20 - "Then Jesus answered and said to them, 'Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner. For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel." We see that God shows Jesus ALL things that He Himself does. The more Jesus saw of and used the power of God, the more power and knowledge He...
  13. OPENING UP RIVERS

    Isaiah 41:17-20: "When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them. I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water. I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the box...
  14. Scripture Of The Day - BECOMING THE GATEWAY TO THE GLORY OF GOD

    Psalm 22:3 says that God is enthroned upon the praises of His people. The throne of God literally rests on the praises of His people. What does that look like? When we begin to praise God with the understanding that He is the great King of Heaven and we worship Him with this attitude and reality, the Scriptures say that His throne will literally be built upon, or come to rest on top of, those praises. Wherever the high praises of God are found on the earth is where the Throne of God will...
  15. SPIRITUAL MANTLE

    2 Kings 2:8,9,13,14 - "Now Elijah took his mantle, rolled it up, and struck the water; and it was divided this way and that, so that the two of them crossed over on dry ground. And so it was, when they had crossed over, that Elijah said to Elisha, "Ask! What may I do for you, before I am taken away from you? Elisha said, "Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me."........He also took up the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him, and went back and stood by the bank of the...
