What’s in a Name?

Acts 19:13 Some Jews who went around driving out evil spirits tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were demon-possessed. They would say, “In the name of the Jesus whom Paul preaches, I command you to come out.” 14 Seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this. 15 One day … Continue reading

You’re In. But, How Far Will You Go?

“..we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all…… For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.” Hebrews 10:10, 13-14 My daughter loves gymnastics. She has class twice a week for an hour and a half. And, anytime she doesn’t … Continue reading

It’s GOOD News!

It’s funny. Sometimes when we are on the MSU campus giving out free water in the summer or the Finals Kits as a part of I Love My City in the Spring, people always seem to be hesitant and sometimes ask, “So, what’s the catch?”. A lot of times, groups/organizations/business give out “free” stuff to … Continue reading

Anointed Noise, Part 2

Have you ever watched a group of people cheering on their favorite sports team winning a game? Or, have you witnessed the squeals of a group of young children when the announcement is made that they’re going to an ice cream parlor? How would you describe these expressions? Jubilant? Ecstatic? Wild? Victorious? You could call … Continue reading

Anointed Noise

Each day has enough trouble of it’s own (Matt. 6:34). Don’t we know it? Every day there’s ample reason to run to God and say, “HELP!” — and, rightly, we should! I can’t think of a much better response to things of life that can so easily overwhelm us . . . and God is … Continue reading

Praying for America: Let the Church ARISE!

As we join in these seven days to pray specifically for our nations, I am excited because I know that God is up to something GOOD! So, as we begin this time, I believe it’s important to begin with the right focus: God. He is good! He has GOOD plans for us and for our nation. Let … Continue reading

Devotional Study of the book of Revelation

I’m collecting here a devotional study I put together on the book of Revelation a few years ago. It’s meant to help those who may be unfamiliar with the book of Revelation to connect with it at a heart-level. It’s not exhaustive at all. And, it only really works if you “participate” and do your … Continue reading

Learning the Yoke of Rest

Matthew 11:29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Jesus is such a good, kind shepherd. Oh, how we all long to know Him and find His perfect rest for … Continue reading

What I Meant to Say Was . . .

Inevitably, whenever I get to share a message in church (or to any other group), my heart is always full and bursting with way more content than time (and attention spans) will allow.  Last Sunday was no different as I shared on how to Embrace a New Season (get audio file here). The Lord is … Continue reading

Righteous Revolution

So, I walked into the Prayer Room one night to the scene above. My heart nearly exploded with joy and a mighty sense of DESTINY. . . . But, let me back up a bit… When God first called me to the MSU campus, to stand with Him in intercession, I had a prayer I … Continue reading
