Don’t Give Up, Go Through

Don’t Give Up, Go Through

When King David and his men returned home from battle, they discovered that the Amalekites had burned their homes to the ground and taken their families prisoner. They were devastated. They wept until they'd no tears left. Then God spoke to them and said, "Pursue...overtake...and...recover all." And with His help they did! So no matter how bad your situation looks right right now, don't give up. Cry if you have to, then dry your tears and go out in God's strength and take back what Enemy has stolen from you. If necessary, take it an inch an inch at time, drawing on His strength and not your...

The Power of Praise

The Power of Praise

The Bible says: “About midnight Paul and Silas were…..singing hymns to God….suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prisons were shaken……all the prison doors flew open, and everybody’s chains came loose.” Praise open doors. Praise breaks chains. Any time you praise God in spite of the circumstances, the force of heaven come to your aid.

Love Yourself

Love Yourself

God loves you so much that He gave His only Son to save you. “Save me from what?” you ask: (1) Going through this life lost, directionless, joyless, and unfulfilled.

And to disagree with God is to make yourself equal with Him, or worse put your opinion above His. Maybe you never thought about it like that before.

Jesus said: “Assuredly whoever says to this mountain, “Be removed and….cast into the sea,” and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.

Handling Loneliness

Handling Loneliness

Sometimes beyond loneliness, there’s a contentment that’s born of necessity. When all you options in the natural realm seem closed, doors can spring open in the spiritual realm. That’s when you begin to see the possibility of having the kin of relationship with God you never had before. John was alone on the island of Patmos, a penal colony like Alcatraz, when God caught him up and took him on a trip through the glories of heaven. As a result we have the book of Revelation. Paul was in prison when he wrote his greatest epistles. In Genesis God did His miraculous work of...

What Do You “See”?

What Do You “See”?

What do you “see” in your future? What’s your “vision”? In 1872 Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, yet one hundred years later African- Americans were still victims of segregation. During a speech at the Lincoln Memorial in 1963, Dr Martin Luther King Jr. expressed his vision in these now famous words: “I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave-owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood. I have dream that one day even the State of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the...
