Jesus says, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33, NIV). This truth is exactly what we see in Elisha: The Prophet with a Double... More > Portion. In the midst of trouble, hardship, and impossibilities, we see this prophet overcoming by the power of the Spirit. He is not removed from difficulties, but He rises above them and rules in the midst of them!
Do your troubles rule you, or do you rule your troubles? Do you fight the difficulties in your life, or do you allow God to use them for your success? We can sink in the ocean or we can surf the waves; it is all in our perspective of the water.
Learn how you can have a double portion of power and abundance through Elisha: The Prophet with a Double Portion.< Less
Hebrews 11:6 says that God rewards those who earnestly seek Him, and one of the biggest ways we can seek Him is through His Word. It’s one thing to listen to a sermon, but it’s an... More > entirely different thing to dive into the Word and study it ourselves. When we begin to regularly eat and digest Scripture, it becomes real to us in a way that is not possible through second-hand carriers.
I don’t know if someone could read this book and not personally read, study, and meditate on the book of 1 John. This is not a book to fly through, nor is it possible to do so and get the full benefits. I strongly urge you to dig into John’s first epistle as you read this book, and fully digest every bit of truth that the epistle has to offer. Great riches and victory lie in the truth of 1 John, along with its deeper development through this book. Feed on the life of this epistle, and be more than a conqueror in Jesus’ Name!< Less
Nehemiah: Building out of the Rubble is a book about restoration. No matter how hopeless or helpless your situation may seem, God is always in the business of complete repair! The power of the Cross... More > is that it is a complete work, so there is nothing more to be done in order to experience absolute fullness in every area of our lives. Colossians 2:9-10, 13-14 says,
For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power . . . And he quickened[us] together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross.
As you read Nehemiah, remember that no situation—no relationship—nodisease—no prisoner—is too far gone or binding for God to rebuild, heal, or set free.< Less
In the Day of Thy Power is an effort to demonstrate the rule of God, particularly defined as revival. Evangelism should be the normal for the church; however, when God shows a glimpse of His power,... More > the fish seem to just jump in the boat!
Revival is not taught, but caught. That’s what this book is all about. Honestly, writing this series from my own view and experiences seems like “speaking of things too wonderful for me” (Job 42:3). Even though God has chosen to involve us in His wonders, they are difficult to define.
The rapid changes of environment let me rediscover what I already knew: my weakness was turned into strength by the power of the Spirit (2 Corinthians 12:10). We must never forget that Jesus went down to the valley of ministry after He was on the Mount of Transfiguration. Let’s do the same.< Less
