Armed with His Might

(PART 1)

Often it appears Satan has the upper hand--attacking our marriages, our families, our jobs, and even our identities--causing us to feel powerless and out of control. If we are to walk in victory over the attacks of the enemy, we must recognize that God is mightier indeed! In His Word and by His Spirit, God has given us the victory, showing us that He is not only with us, but also working through us, no matter what we face.

Father, help me to stop believing the lies of the enemy and judging how bad things are by the way they look now. Let me become mighty in spirit through the promises of Your Word, which give me peace, victory, supply and hope in all situations. Amen.

(PART 2)

Satan is a deceiver and a thief. He will try to get you to imagine that there is no hope. That is the time when you need to get tough with your faith and turn to the truth found in God's Word. In God's Word, you will find His assurance that not only are you protected from the attacks and wiles of the enemy, but you are also called and chosen by God and strengthened by His might.

Becoming God's Woman




(PART 1)

Once we have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, we become joint heirs with Him and daughters of the King. No matter what you have been through or how bad things have seemed, it is never too late to claim your position of dignity in Christ--as the daughter of the King! read more

The Freedom to Forgive

When we are treated unfairly, our natural man wants revenge. Jesus showed us a better way--a way to freedom. Bitterness destroys us, but forgiveness brings healing. read more

Falling in Love with Jesus


(PART 1)

Behold His Glory

(Part 1)

We often cry out for God to send His glory among us. But how well do we understand what we're asking for? God's glory encompasses His holy character revealed in Jesus.
READ Ex. 24:15-18; Ex. 33:18-23; Lev. 11:45; 2 Cor. 3:18; Col. 1:25-29; Heb. 1:1-3. read more

Revival of the Heart


All over the world, the Spirit is pouring out revival. New measures of glory expose our bitter roots and unclean hearts. Through repentance, we can be cleansed and set free. read more

Will You Ride with Him?

We know that Jesus Christ is the revelation of all God is. But our ability to activate the life of Christ within us determines the level of victory we experience.

Author Anne Graham Lotz noted the powerful correlation between the way we view Christ the living Word and the way we approach the written Word of God. In Vision of His Glory, Lotz wrote: "[God] considers our reception or rejection of the Bible to be reception or rejection of Himself. Jesus Christ, the King of kings and Lord of lords, is so identified with it, it is His Name!" read more

Messengers from Glory

The Scriptures include countless references to angels in both the Old and the New Testaments. This should convince us that God does not stand far off from His people when we need His intervention. Often, He sends angels to comfort, instruct and encourage us with a word, a song or a touch.

Because we don't always embrace the reality of angelic comfort, these encounters can go unnoticed. But we never face desperate circumstances alone. read more

Freedom in Christ

Oppression in many different forms can attempt to overtake the life of the Christian. Whether it's sickness, emotional struggles or family concerns, at those times, the tendency is to search for a place of safety--a stronghold.

However, finding security anywhere other than in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ will eventually lead to bondage. A stronghold will ultimately become a prison. But God's objective for us is the freedom to walk in the Spirit and be conformed to the image of Christ in every way. read more

Called to Be His Bride

Our understanding of the kingdom of God takes a dramatic turn when we realize our first calling is to love and enjoy Jesus Christ. More than by fear or a sense of duty, our obedience to Him must be fueled by our love for Him or it becomes reduced to rigid orthodoxy and dead works.
We are not heirs to an experience of lifeless doctrines. It is to passionate love, vibrant faith and boundless joy that we are called as the bride of Christ. read more

Ten Lies the Church Tells Women

In the days of Jesus' earthly ministry, He confronted men's religious traditions and challenged their long-held distorted beliefs regarding the status of women.

Men and women in the church have made some progress toward a more balanced view of gender roles. However, there is still a great deal of fear and confusion associated with the topic.

Freedom for women to serve God with their gifts is liberating to men rather than threatening. Women desire to utilize these gifts for His glory, and it is wasteful and disobedient not to permit them the opportunity to do so. read more

Women Transforming the World

Prophets and those who are sensitive to the currents of the Spirit of God are calling this a new era in the church in which women of strength and anointing will arise and step into the roles God has ordained for them.

Women after God's heart, "spiritual mothers," will not be hindered by anything in this hour. Rather, they will stand poised, fearlessly awaiting God's direction and enabling to accomplish His work. read more

The Ingredients of the Anointing

Under the old covenant, the anointing oil had one exclusive purpose. In a symbolic act of consecration, it was poured out on prophets, priests and kings and on the tabernacle, the ark of the covenant and all the individual utensils that were employed in the worship of God.

It was compounded according to strict instructions, and although its ingredients were earthly, everything about it was rich in sacred symbolism. Any vessel thus anointed was set apart for a holy purpose and calling unto the Lord. read more

We Must Bow in Awe

(Part 1)

The Bible predicts a time of judgment is coming to the earth. As Christians, our response to tragedies like September 11 is crucial, because others are taking their cues from us. read more

Seeing the Invisible

(PART 1)

Developed spiritual sight is a valuable tool when making decisions. If we ask Him, God will guide us in choosing the best territory for us and our descendants. read more
