Truth hurts!

“You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32 (HCSB) We’re told that the truth will set us free, but it can only do that if it is applied to our lives. And in most cases, truth will hurt before it frees. Truth will cause a reaction because it is […]

When joy is restored!

“He who goes out weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.” Psalm 126:6 ESV We’re in an epic battle! Recently my family watched (again) The Lord of the Rings trilogy. The battle for good against a terrible, evil foe that appears unstoppable. A handful […]

Battle for normal!

“For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.” Ephesians 6:12 (HCSB) Have you noticed the huge push for PRIDE MONTH and the loudness of the “woke” agenda?  Target with its tuck friendly […]

All people, everywhere!

“And tongues, like flames of fire that were divided, appeared to them and rested on each one of them.” Acts 2:3 (HCSB) Acts 2 is quite descriptive… sound of a mighty violent wind from heaven (v2), flames of fire dividing and landing on everyone (v3), all were filled with the Holy Spirit and 120 people […]

Just beginning!

“Suddenly a sound like that of a violent rushing wind came from heaven, and it filled the whole house where they were staying.” Acts 2:2 (HCSB) Tomorrow is Pentecost Sunday, and so little is being said about it. Though the Holy Spirit and a host of fiery angels would like to fall once again on […]

Not just a Sunday!

“When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place.” Acts 2:1 (ESV) Did you know that this Sunday, May 28 is not only Memorial Day weekend, but more importantly it is Pentecost? Just as in Acts 2, the Holy Spirit, accompanied by fiery angels, fell on the waiting remnant in the upper […]

Not their fault!

“So God created man in His own image; He created him in the image of God; He created them male and female.” Genesis 1:27 (HCSB) Yes, things in our world look pretty gloom! Yes, there is confusion of gender, and such blatant perversion. Yes, there is no sanctity of life. Yes, the world does what […]

From disappointment to reappointment!

“Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life.” Proverbs 13:12 (ESV) Over time we can become weary of carrying disappointment! It starts popping up via loss of zeal for the dream! After tarrying a long time and seeing things decreasing instead of increasing, our hearts can become sick […]

Arrows in a quiver!

“Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth.” Psalm 127:4 (ESV) The Psalm tells us that children are a blessing from God and that they are arrows in our quiver. Yet many have children who are wandering, walking in rebellion, or perhaps simply cold towards the Lord. Nevertheless, God’s […]

Shake it off!

“But Paul shook off the snake into the fire and was unharmed.” Acts 28:5 (NLT) Today there are prophetic voices warning about a slithering demonic attack going on in the Church. Key leaders are being targeted by seducing spirits. Many have already been ensnared! We need to fight for and become a prayer wall around […]
