Restoring Your Passion for God

Often it's said that no one backslides overnight. We become accepting of our decreased interest in prayer and spiritual disciplines, and we gradually begin to take steps away from God. Without a conscious decision to increase in spiritual passion, we will slowly begin losing the desire we have. Then it becomes easier to tolerate carnal thoughts and behaviors. But the romance can be restored by repenting, recalling the memory of "first love" and re-establishing the intimacy by doing the first works. read more

Declaring War on the Enemies of Joy

Joy is a fruit of the indwelling Spirit. Why then should there be a struggle to protect it? Daily we are forced to choose how we'll respond to circumstances that have the potential to destroy the peace God intends for us to have. Knowing those attitudes that war against the Spirit of God in us will equip us to begin to formulate an offensive strategy that will guarantee our peace and our joy.
Regardless of what we know to be right, the choice to walk after the Spirit of Truth will always be ours to make. He'll not force us to follow Him. read more

Press Toward Your Miracle

All of us have had to deal with baggage from the past--things we either willfully or innocently were a part of that we fear will disqualify us from being blessed and used of God. The infirm woman in Scripture is an illustration of perseverance. Though she had experienced incredible indignities and isolation because of her illness, she possessed an ability to overcome the odds against her. She had a proven track record as a survivor. As such, she is a model for every woman who needs to be strengthened and restored to embrace the inheritance to which she is entitled as a daughter of the living God. read more

Maintaining the Flow

We've all had the experience of being touched so powerfully by the Holy Spirit that we knew instantly everything would change from that moment. Throughout our time on earth there can be many life-changing encounters with the Spirit of God. Often we may be tempted to question whether a permanent impartation has taken place. Scripture does offer us prerequisites for staying on fire for God.

Begin using what you have. Keep in mind the fact that the anointing is not given for personal consumption. The anointing must be allowed to flow out to others. read more
