See Victory

They say that “seeing is believing”. What if it’s by believing (first) that we actually begin to see?? Or, put another way, what if we can see it (in our minds eye) before we see it with our physical eyes?  That’s called faith, right? Or, as some have said, having eyes of faith. I was struck recently … Continue reading

Where Do You Find Delight?

[Day 28 of my church’s 40-day REND 960 season of fasting & prayer] In the opening verses of Isaiah 58, God speaks to His people about hos they seem to want to “be near” Him and seem to want to “know His ways”. This would seem to be a good thing, except that He confronts … Continue reading

Your Light Will Break Forth

Isaiah 58 is such an incredible invitation — to allow God to share His heart with us! Can you believe that the God of the universe would rend His heart to us?? What a grand and glorious privilege.

A Feast and an Overflowing Cup

We recently had 7 days of 24-hour prayer leading up to a regional gathering for University Awakening called “The Send”. I believe the season of concentrated prayer and the event brought an incredible victory in the Spirit.  I think much work of the enemy was prevented and large amount of ground was taken for the … Continue reading

Who Made YOU God?

It’s exciting to hear about people getting their relationships cleaned up after me sharing about Jesus’ teaching on a life of forgiveness (if you didn’t hear it, I recommend you listen to it! Here’s the link). To have our heart right with others is to have our heart in the right place with God! 🙂 … Continue reading

The Mystery of Walking with God and Human Leadership

“It’s only a good fight if you win!” Psalm 144:1 Praise be to the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle. The Lord wants to teach us how to wage war in the Spirit, and His plan is for us to always WIN, by walking in Jesus’ (already established) victory.  So, there … Continue reading
