Say Yes to God's Promises

(Part 1)

God can speak to you at any time. He uses His prophets in the church or the Bible, His written word. But here is a vital question: Are you ready to pay the cost and give up what is necessary to fulfill His direction and call on your life? read more

Worship is More than a Song

God created us to worship Him. Sometimes we feel inhibited to worship because we don't like who we are. God looks past our faults and abilities--He wants our hearts. read more

Go and Sin No More

Satan has long pursued the destruction of women, especially through the shame of sexual impurity. It is time we accept the Lord's forgiveness and be released to "sin no more." read more

Winning the War in Your Mind

We are living in an age of terror, but the greatest battle involves our minds. Voices inside us war for our response. We must set our minds on the things of God to know peace. read more

Who is Shaping Our Children?

(PART 1)

Raising godly children does not occur by chance. Christian parents must be diligent to plant their children in the Word and ways of God. read more

The Daughters' Inheritance

God gives His girls equality and has commisioned them to take territory for His kingdom.


Most Israelites who traveled through the Sinai desert with Moses probably knew about the daughters of Zelophehad. While other women hid inside tents and covered themselves head to foot with heavy veils, these girls—Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah and Tirzah—defied the patriarchal system of their day and earned a special place in biblical history.

We rarely hear sermons about Zelophehad's daughters today, even though they are mentioned in the Bible five times (see Num. 26:33; 27:1-7; 36:1-12; 1 Chr. 7:15; Josh. 17:1-6). Maybe this is because many church leaders simply don't want to empower women or are afraid to. But it is time we unlocked these women's secret for a new generation. read more

Ten Lies The Church Tells Women

FOR CENTURIES, A PATRIARCHAL SYSTEM OF CONTROL HAS KEPT WOMEN IN SPIRITUAL CAPTIVITY THROUGH DISTORTION OF THE SCRIPTURES. IT'S TIME TO DEBUNK THE MYTHS.

We live in the 21st century, but if we're honest we have to admit that in some ways the church is still in the Dark Ages--especially when we look at the way we treat women.

Even though the Scriptures never portray women as secondary to men, our male-dominated religious system still promotes a warped view of female inferiority. Women are tired of this, and as a man, so am I--because such demeaning attitudes don't reflect God's heart. read more

Giving Your Weaknesses to God

Insecurity tempts us to shrink back when God asks us to do seemingly impossible tasks. If we obey, however, He will equip us to accomplish and enjoy His miracles. read more

God Wants You!

(PART 1)

God has created each of us as a unique individual with a unique purpose. Our greatest fulfillment comes when we understand His love for us and realize our calling. read more

God is More Than Fair

There are times in each of our lives when we compare ourselves with others. Jesus talks about this attitude in the parable of the Prodigal Son. Most of the story is about the younger son, who took his inheritance and wasted it all.

When the younger son came home, his father welcomed him with open arms and threw a huge party. The older son heard about the party and was furious. He thought it was unfair that his father was so generous with someone the elder son judged as undeserving (see Luke 15:29-30, NIV).

The older brother wanted his father to be fair. But his father, like any father, was more than fair; he was loving. read more

God Uses Women

I must truthfully say that I have found no Scripture verse forbidding a woman to preach, pray or prophesy. Instead, I found a large number of permission Scriptures. The words preach and prophesy cannot be separated. "But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort" (1 Cor. 14:3, KJV). That is exactly what a preacher does. The word prophesy means "to speak, or foretell, under divine influence."

In the book of Joel, God said that women would prophesy. Paul the Apostle also stated that women would prophesy. Some say women should not minister to a mixed group. However, we find that Priscilla helped her husband to instruct Apollos more fully in the way of the Lord (see Acts 18:26).

Phoebe, an unmarried woman in the church, attended and took part in a business meeting at Paul's commission (see Rom. 16:1-2). The great letter to the Romans was delivered by her. And women had a prominent part in the ministry of Christ Himself. All four Gospels bear out the fact that after His resurrection Christ appeared first to women. Jesus ordained women to tell the men that He was risen.

Thank You, Lord, for using women throughout history to proclaim the glorious gospel. Use me as You see fit. In Jesus' name. Amen. read more

The Disillusionment of Elijah

Satan likes to torment successful Christians with disillusionment, hoping they will give in and miss God's best for their ministries. We must learn to resist this tactic as Christ did. read more

Unconditional Trust

ABRAHAM FACED HIS ULTIMATE CHALLENGE OF OBEDIENCE ON MOUNT MORIAH. HE TRUSTED GOD AND SURRENDERED. UNAWARE OF WHAT THE OUTCOME WOULD BE.

As the sun rose in the east, elusive early morning shadows played about the rugged crown of Mount Moriah. It was now just a day's journey away.

Abraham searched its dim outline for understanding as sand shifted beneath his feet. The words of Jehovah echoed again and again through his mind. They caused the old man's heart to pound. read more

Cast Out the Spirit of Poverty

Jesus declared He came to give us abundant life. Living in poverty and perpetual lack is not God's will and may reflect an unbroken curse. read more

Savoring the Moment

Feeling perpetually dissatisfied with your current circumstances may indicate a deeper problem. When we forfeit our agendas, God helps us discover His purposes and joy. read more

When You Pray, Believe

(PART 1)

Believing God's promises necessitates first knowing God. Our experience of God comes through daily intercourse with Him. We must learn to receive Him in order to build faith. read more

Who is This Jesus?

Christianity is not about performance or production; it centers upon being immersed in a Person. His extravagant love for us fills our hearts and transforms our lives. read more

Are You a Target for Seduction?

(PART 1)

Our past wounds and weaknesses give Satan a potential advantage over us. We need to understand where we are vulnerable so we may defend ourselves against evil schemes. read more

Who Are You Trying to Please?

People-pleasers seek to gain approval from others by never saying "no." God desires that we seek His pleasure first, and then He will help us maintain healthy relationships. read more

Through the Eyes of the Spirit

Spiritual vision can be a reality for every Christian through the discipline of prayer. A born-again believer can see the kingdom of God. His Spirit reveals to our spirit a picture of things as they are in the heavenly realm, thus enabling us to perceive all He has for us.

Long before a promise of God is manifested in the earth, spiritual vision will see it and continually hold it up so that in God's time it can become a natural reality. read more
