Garbage In, Garbage Out

High-speed communication has provided us with the means to reach more and more people with the gospel. Yet the same technology is being used to destroy the souls of men and women who are tempted by ungodly pleasures and entertainment. We must as women of God labor to "keep [our] hearts with all diligence." read more

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

Opening the Windows of Heaven

It is astounding to think that man in all his wisdom has never seen, heard or imagined what God has in store for a special kind of people—those who love and wait for 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

A Woman's Right to Preach

Many christians object to the idea of women in ministry because they believe the bible forbids it. The scriptures show their belief is unfounded.

How is it that women would venture to preach when female ministry is forbidden in the Word of God?

This is a serious objection to consider and, if capable of substantiation, would receive my immediate and cheerful acquiescence; but I think I can show, by a fair and consistent interpretation, that the very opposite view is the truth--that the public ministry of women is absolutely enjoined by both precept and example in the Word of God. read more

The Working Woman's Dilemma

Even today, some church leaders tell Christian women that God wants them to stay at home. But what does the Bible really say?

In the small town of Berryville, in northwest Arkansas, members of the board at First Baptist Church voted in February 1997 to close their church-run day-care center. They made the abrupt decision not because the facility was too expensive to operate or because they didn't have enough children enrolled. The official reason, as stated in a letter that was mailed to parents, was that church leaders felt their day-care center was encouraging women to work outside the home.

"God intended for the home to be the center of a mother's world," the letter from First Baptist stated, adding that working moms "neglect their children, damage their marriages and set a bad example." First Baptist's day-care center board, under the direction of the pastor, also noted in their letter that families should learn to get by on the husband's single income." read more
