People of Purpose

Once we know our purpose in life we won’t be so easily sidetracked. When something comes our way that doesn’t serve our purpose, it will be easily recognized for what it is: a distraction to be avoided. This very thing happened to me when a friend of mine asked me to represent the home-school community …

Become Immune to Attacks

Isaiah 53:3 is a prophetic word speaking of the rejections and abuse that Jesus would endure from humanity. It says, “He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not” (NIV). Have you ever …

Press for More than Enough

During the 12 years that Nehemiah was Governor of Judah, he refused to draw on the food allowance provided for governors. Many people who struggle financially often think that asking the Lord to bless them financially sounds selfish or greedy. Many of these same people think it sounds more godly and humble to be poor. …

A Distribution Center

During the 12 years that Nehemiah was Governor of Judah, he refused to draw on the food allowance provided for governors.

Invariably, those who fit this description were people who resisted the status quo and achieved what everyone else said was impossible, who stood …

Voice Activated

Why did Zechariah and Mary experience completely different results based solely on their response to God’s promise? Because without a voice in agreement with God’s plan, nothing happens. This is a spiritual law that God established from the beginning. In Genesis 1:2 the scripture says: “The earth was empty, a formless mass cloaked in darkness. …

Make a straight highway through the wasteland for our God!” (Isaiah 40:3 NLT). The good news is that you and I also have voices that can open divine pathways and allow God’s plan …

The Power Of Your Voice

There was a great deal involved in order to get Jesus from Heaven to the manger, into His earthly ministry, and back to the Throne again. Even though this was all part of God’s plan, it didn’t automatically happen—nothing does. For example, Matthew 18:14 says that it’s not the Father’s will that any should perish, …

God Is On Your Side

Jesus said, “Whatever you forbid on earth will be forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit on earth will be permitted in heaven” (Matthew 18:18 Phillips). We can no longer take a fearful, beggarly attitude toward the enemy hoping he will allow us to have what God has already promised. When we have that kind …
