How God sees us is completely different than how we see ourselves. Our view is clouded, our ability disjointed. We cannot comprehend the vision of the Creator without understanding His perception – love. Love doesn’t ignore what is wrong with us or those toxic, sinful traits we hold near and dear. No! His love points them out without shaming and hating. His love then proceeds to call out His original design within us – our destiny that is still a seed. God who is Love knows how to transform the human heart......
Our world is greatly influenced by the unseen realm whether you believe it or not. Powers of darkness pull on the souls of men, luring them away from all that is good, right, and true. The Lord God Almighty also tugs on the souls of humanity. He continually influences, draws, loves, and woos humanity to His heart. On the circle of the earth, He sits enthroned high above the affairs of men (Isaiah 40:22). He doesn’t sit idly by though. Our God is very much involved in the human story and where......
Life as we know it is changing. Our world is shaking, shifting, and adjusting. Compare your life to January 2020 and you will remember a completely different world. After reading that stay at home order in March, I knew our lives would never be the same. Naturally, many of us are still reaching back for the “good old days” but we can never go back. God is shifting us into a new place. He is preparing us for something better than our past. Something exciting is on the way. During these......
“I hear there are divisions among you…” (1 Corinthians 11:18) I have been hearing this over and over again in my spirit. With division ravaging the world and the Church, it comes as no surprise that God is highlighting unity. As we celebrate Pentecost, that great Jewish Festival when God sent Holy Spirit and ask Him to send another great outpouring, there is something we must remember. There is something we must face. God did not pour out His Spirit until the 120 disciples were in “one accord.” (Acts 2:1) According......
2020, we had such high hopes for you! What a wild last few months it has been! If you are anything like me you’re probably wondering how the rest of this year is going to be. Will this shelter in place ever end? Is there going to be a “second wave”? It seems like the future is very unknown right now but we do not have to be afraid. The Bible teaches that in the end, perilous times would come. Jesus told us what would take place before His coming (wars, famines,......
What does it mean to fear the Lord? Are we supposed to be afraid of Him? Does it mean He is a dictator waiting to crack His whip on the backs of humanity when they do wrong? I have heard this term most of my life and never really understood what it meant. Part of me did not like the sound of it because I had so much fear already and did not want to be afraid of God as well. After listening to Dr. Kathy share about the fear of the......
So many of us do not walk in our God-given authority, even though it has been made available to us through Jesus Christ. We go about our day feeling like victims to our circumstances, weighed down by the cares of this world. It’s not supposed to be that way saints. Jesus has paid for us to have so much more! He came that we may have life and life more abundantly! (John 10:10) There is more to what Jesus did than just simply saving us from eternity in hell. He came to......
Do you know that God is a Father? Do you believe that you are His beloved child? Sometimes we forget this important truth as we go about our busy lives. We forget He is OUR Father. If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior God is YOUR Father! He is your DADDY! Some of us have not had great fathers, stable fathers or even present fathers. Some of us have had harsh, unloving, angry fathers and that has affected how we perceive THE Father I was sitting in my......
“Am I really Lord of your life?” I heard this question in my spirit a few weeks ago and I began to examine my heart regarding His Lordship in my life. After God asked me that question He began speaking to me about Him being King of Kings and Lord of Lords from Revelation 19:16. I was completely blown away by how much God’s Word talks about Him being Lord and King. Jesus is commonly called the “Lord Jesus Christ” not just Jesus. The word Lord comes from the Old English word......
It is that time of the year again: Passover and Resurrection season. Most Christians celebrate Jesus death and resurrection but few understand how the biblical celebration of Passover applies to them. Passover is more than just another Jewish holiday. It is a commanded time of remembrance and celebration established by God in Exodus chapter 12. It is followed by a 7day festival called the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Passover was and is the holiest time of year for those of the Jewish faith and for those who honor God’s command to observe......
