Reflection of the Father

The greatest revelation of God Himself is in the face of His Son.


John the Baptist was the forerunner of Jesus Christ. He lived before the face of God—the ultimate place of favor and responsibility. Others in Scripture had more dramatic experiences with God and did greater exploits, but no prophet ever bore the responsibility that was given to him.

John had an unusual grace for recognizing the presence of God, even before he was born. When Mary was pregnant with Jesus, she walked into a room to visit Elizabeth, who was pregnant with John. When Mary's greeting reached Elizabeth's ears, John leaped for joy while still in her womb. read more

Contend for Your Promise


Do you ever feel as if you are in a season of perpetual winter, when everything in your life seems cold and dreary and there is no sign of spring in view? Perhaps you are experiencing health, relational or financial problems, and the promises of God appear to be lying dormant rather than coming to fruition as you had thought they would.

If you are going through difficult circumstances that appear to threaten the fulfillment of your destiny, you can relate to the biblical character Tamar, who was the wife of Judah's oldest son, Er (see Gen. 38:6-30). Tamar was truly a victim of negative circumstances. Not long after she was married, God judged her husband to be wicked and put him to death.

According to Jewish custom, Tamar was then given as a wife to Onan, her husband's brother, so that he could produce offspring for Er. But because Onan refused to fulfill his duty, God put him to death also. read more

Christ's Advancing Kingdom


We should not be surprised when we see tremendous blessing and great evil appearing side by side. As believers today, I think we often look at the spiritual condition of our country and the rest of the world and we're given to think that God's kingdom is not advancing as it should be.

The other day, I heard someone say that the apparent worsening of the world's condition is not the result of our lack of spiritual authority and influence. Rather, the rise in hostility toward Christianity is a response to the power of God making inroads into the devil's domain.

Reading 2 Corinthians 1 in a contemporary version really opened my understanding on this subject. Paul wrote: "We don't want you to be in the dark, friends, about how hard it was when all this came down on us in Asia province. It was so bad we didn't think we were going to make it. read more

Let the Pain Go

Every woman has endured one kind of heartbreak or another. We've all had the unfortunate experience of betrayal, and we've grieved over the difficulty of getting past it. As Christian women, how do we process the hurts we go through? And where is our God in the midst of them?

In the book of 2 Samuel, King David's daughter Tamar suffered an unspeakable violation at the hands of her brother Amnon, who afterward, rejected her and cast her away. The Scripture says: "Tamar put ashes on her head and tore the ornamented robe she was wearing. She put her hand on her head and went away, weeping aloud as she went" (2 Sam. 13:19, NIV). read more

How to Resist Compromise


We are surrounded by cultural pressures on a daily basis, urging us to "water down" what we believe and to compromise our very practices of the Christian faith. The story of Daniel is a powerful example of how to maintain your integrity in the midst of cultural forces that would pull you away from your faith. read more

Break Free from Religion

If it is for freedom that Christ set us free, why do we seek to entangle one another in yokes of bondage, otherwise known as religious traditions?

Before I became a Christian, I had a reputation for being a "worldly woman." Once I accepted Christ, my heart's desire was to be accepted as a "church sister." The problem was, I didn't look like one yet.

I wore extremely tight clothes, my hair was three colors, and I had a mouth full of gold teeth. At one church I was called "Jezebel" and asked to leave. A deacon pulled me aside and warned me that the people there didn't like "my kind." 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
