Gary Goodell

Two very good books by Gary Goodell, who works with Graham Cooke: Permission Granted – To Do Church Differently In The 21st Century Where Would Jesus Lead – A Study In Chaordic Leadership From the second book: “Your destiny is hidden in your daily routines.” From me: Be awesome today so you can be even […]

Guarding the Anointing

Some superstars have advised us regarding keeping our anointing safe from being spoiled or stolen, including how to avoid personal contact with people and other activities that insulate us from danger – being careful not to pray for some people, be perfectly obedient, never do anything with wrong motives, the list is long. Jesus had […]

MAP AND COMPASS

A dictionary is a map. It charts where we have been to get to the place where we are. It doesn’t suggest how to use a word, but instead documents how a word is commonly being used. The Bible is a Map. It is a record of how far we have seen in various directions. […]

Words as Weapons

This charge, son Timothy, I put to you, in keeping with the prophecies already made about you, so that by these prophecies you may fight the good fight, armed with trust and a good conscience. (1 Timothy 1:18-19 Complete Jewish Bible) David fought well with Goliath and Saul and the Philistines because he believed the […]

Choosing Well

You have too many choices. You just need to choose one thing and follow it through to the finish: Learn to recognize the voice of your Shepherd and choose to do whatever He says. Part of the process of learning His voice is making mistakes. That fact doesn’t seem to surprise or trouble Him. It […]

Newness is Sweet

Our carnal, earthly selves usually hate changes in our calendar, our environment, our list of responsibilities. But, new things bring change. Yahweh’s mercy is new every day. I think that means that we don’t always recognize His mercy. It’s not just a re-wound toy that will run again for another day. It’s new. The Roman […]

Armsless Army

Like the scene described in 1 Samuel 13&14, many leaders of the church are unprepared to lead in the battles ahead. Some young people are going to step up and lead like young Jonathan did when he attacked the Philistine army with his armor bearer. Yahweh then shook the earth and spread terror among the […]

Wonderful Names

Judges 13:8 (HCSB) Manoah prayed to the Lord and said, “Please Lord, let the man of God you sent come again to us and teach us what we should do for the boy who will be born.” God listened to Manoah, and the Angel of God came again to the woman. She was sitting in […]

I am Normal

One of the biggest mistakes we may make as we interact with people is engaging them from a perspective that we are normal, but they are not. If don’t listen to you and discern who you are and how you think before I try to share something important with you, I am likely to speak my […]

You Look Great

Don’t confuse style with fashion. Fashion is what was popular to wear 40 years ago and is now popular again. It changes the width of ties and the length of collars and the prints and colors of skirts each year so that you stand out for wearing clothes that were new last year and makes […]
