Live As in His Presence

Knowing God is always with us must inform every decision we make about how we live.


Endeavour to keep a due guard over your words, that you may habitually speak nothing but what is true on all occasions. Consider what a high offence it is against the God of truth to speak falsely, either through design or inadvertence.

In telling any story or relating past actions be careful to speak deliberately and calmly, ever remembering you are in the presence of the great and holy God. Every sin is a contradiction and offence to some divine attribute. Lying is opposite and offensive to the truth of God. Whenever you find any extraordinary assistance from the Spirit of God, either by illuminating the mind, strengthening the soul or raising the affections, be sure for some time after to keep a stronger guard upon yourself. I have often observed that after the greatest enlargements in prayer and the greatest professions of devotedness to God, we are permitted to fall into great temptations. I humbly conceive this to be commonly for one of these reasons: (1) to try the sincerity of the mind, to show us whether or not we are in our outward conversation the same we profess to be in our retirements; (2) to humble the mind, which upon such occasions is too apt to be elated. read more

Shunned for Believing

After 11 years of serving and worshiping in a denominational church, I found myself an outcast among the congregation because I received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Hurt and dejected, I felt as though a spear had been thrust into my heart. My whole world crumbled.

People I loved turned away and told me to go with my "own kind." The baptism had made me different, and to the church I was unacceptable.

I could have wallowed endlessly in my pain, but the Holy Spirit lifted me and began a work in me that exceeded my understanding. I moved out from beneath the heavy shackles of the bondage I'd been too blind to recognize. read more

Setting Believers Free

APOSTLE KIMBERLY DANIELS TRAVELS THE WORLD TEACHING CHRISTIANS HOW TO OPERATE IN DELIVERANCE MINISTRY.


Apostle Kimberly Daniels has always been a fighter. As a child, she made it a point to get in at least one fight every day and formed a gang with the tough- est girls in her school. As an adult she joined the U.S. Army and became a staff sergeant.

But today Daniels uses her strength and determination for another purpose. She's known as the Demon Buster, the leader of a small army of deliverance ministers who are exercising spiritual authority through prayer to confront demons of drug addiction, violence and witchcraft in their community. read more

Rescued from the Occult

Growing up in the Roman Catholic Church, I attended parochial schools and sometimes went to Mass six days a week. But I lost faith in the church when, later in life, I found myself divorced with two small children and excluded from communion and the other sacraments.

My twin sister urged me to attend her church and gave me a copy of The Book. At age 31, for the first time in my life, I began reading the Bible.

At the same time, a close friend persuaded me to see a psychic, and I soon became hooked. I was enchanted with the New Age movement because it made me feel as if I had special powers and was in control of my destiny. At church, I felt like an outsider--a divorced single mom in the midst of all those happy families. read more

Finishing Your Course


The Christian Race Ann Chastain, one of my former pupils, grew up to run an impressive number of marathons. When I interviewed her on my TV program, Babbie's House, she challenged me to enter Atlanta's upcoming U.S. 10K Classic race, to be held on Labor Day morning.

Reluctantly I said yes. I love to walk, but this 6.2-mile race is known as the most difficult 10K because it's mostly uphill along one of Atlanta's thoroughfares.

Ann became my teacher. The first time we trekked up a hill, I noticed that the in-shape runners took it as if it were nothing, but I found every step painfully difficult. read more

Released from Alchohol Addiction

Twenty years ago, I had my first drink and continued to drink for the next 11 years. The more I drank, the more tolerable my life seemed. But I was actually in spiritual bondage (unsaved) and shackled by my addiction.

In an alcoholic fog, I skated through a series of relationships and jobs, blaming my immoral behavior on blackouts and other people. In an ill-fated quest to recapture the first "buzz," I continued to spiral downhill. A few months shy of my 30th birthday in 1997, I suddenly wanted to stop before I hit rock bottom.

I didn't know it at the time, but the Holy Spirit was working in me. The shame of alcoholism became overwhelming. But after I was sober, I still felt ashamed and disappointed. read more

Are You Like Your Father?


One of my most poignant memories of my late father is of him seated at his desk with his Bible open, studying. My dad was devoted to Jesus Christ and had an insatiable hunger for biblical knowledge.

I remember watching him many times as he pored over passages and prayed for understanding. Years later, I had the privilege of getting a seminary education, and one day during a class lecture, I thought of him.

Surrounded by my fellow graduate students in a stately lecture hall, my eyes began to water. I was imagining how much my father would have loved being in this class. read more

Real Kids


Both my 3-year-old adopted Chinese daughter, Jessica MeiLan, and I love clothes. As a stay-at-home mom, I'm always looking for a bargain, especially since I buy for my daughter first.

One Saturday I came home from a yard sale with three denim jumpers, two shorts sets, and a princess-waisted floral dress of pastel pinks, yellows, and blues--all for only $13!

I could hardly wait to wear my "new" dress to church the next day. Usually the church women notice new dresses, and I waited, expecting compliments. But none came my way. read more
