While prayer is alignment and intimacy – it is also a battle! Why? Because we are praying against the powers of darkness to release the souls of men!

The Discipline of Prayer – Luke 11:1-13

Why did Jesus’ disciples ask, “Lord, teach us to pray?” Because they realized that all spiritual success depends upon our union with the Lord.

Victorious Christian Living – Romans 8:1-4

Ever wonder what Paul actually meant when he said in Romans 8:2, “For the Law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death”? What about the next verse (v. 3) that God’s Son has “Condemned sin in the flesh”?  How about (v. 4) “We…

The Place Called Calvary – Luke 23:32-34

So what exactly happened when “The Lord was slain from the foundation of the world”? (Revelation 13:8) How do we know that our sin debt has been paid? How did Jesus free us from the chains of our past? Why do we have access into the very presence of a Holy God? What makes it…

Sufficient Grace – II Corinthians 12:1-10

I love this text because God gives us answers to the following four questions: What does Jesus mean when He says “My grace is sufficient for you”? What does Jesus mean when He says “My strength is made perfect in weakness”? What does it mean to “Glory in my infirmities”? What does it mean “That…

A Sunday Like None Other – Luke 24:36-53

How do you go from huddled in a room in fear, to being renewed by the Person of the Holy Spirit? How do you go from feeling so undeserving to being saturated by the Holy Spirit? How and why did Jesus say, “Be endued with power from on high?” It’s all in Luke 24:36-53. Download…

The Long Way Around – Exodus 14:14

Wouldn’t it be great if God always took us the easy way in the journey? Wouldn’t it be nice if we were always comfortable? Wouldn’t it be more enjoyable if we never needed patience in the journey of life? See the power of God’s word to Israel: “Fear not, stand still and see the salvation…

When Your Vision Becomes Obscured – Acts 27:14-20

If the evil one can steal your hope, that spells vulnerability! If the storms of life can steal your optimism, that spells deep despair. If the enemy is able to kill your vision, trouble awaits.

A Spiritual Breakthrough – II Samuel 5:17-25

Sow On and Sow Forth – Mark 4:26-29

Mark 4:27 is one of the most encouraging truths in Scripture. When Jesus says that the seed of the Word will “spring up and grow” and that you and I “knoweth not how” – it is flat out liberating. We don’t have to have all the answers or know how God will answer prayer. We…

The God of New Beginnings – Genesis 13:1-4

I will never forget Jim Cymbala’s words at District Council in Binghamton, NY. The words were, “The Christian life is made up of 10,000 new beginnings.” These words come alive in Abraham’s life as he goes through a period of confusion and turn-a-round. I think you’ll love how Abraham sadly went down to Egypt –…

About two years ago I came across Ecclesiastes 11:4, a principle verse I had never really seen before. It’s a principle of life, ministry and missions.
