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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Rich, Now or Later

1 Timothy 6:17-19 As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to […]

Hebrews 11

Some people call Hebrews 11 the “Hall of Faith.” I wondered for quite a while when I was being stretched from average church member to expecter of the miraculous, why the writer was bragging on these heroes regarding their faith when their ends included being cut in two, being whipped, beaten, poor, living in caves […]

Your Provision, Your Preparation

Joshua 13:14 Only to the tribe of Levi he had given no inheritance; the sacrifices of the Lord God of Israel made by fire are their inheritance, as He said to them. NKJV Deuteronomy 10:9 Therefore Levi has no portion nor inheritance with his brethren; the Lord is his inheritance, just as the Lord your […]

Well-Equipped Saints

The silliest of people who have learned how to listen to the Spirit of God and obey Him will do greater exploits and win more and greater prizes than the greatest of the wise who are only wise in light of the wisdom of the world. The wisdom of the world may be able to […]

Huffing, Puffing and Building

We know that knowledge puffs up and that love builds up (1 Corinthians 8). Still, what we prefer to offer to unbelievers and new believers is information instead of the costly commodity called agape. What makes new believers into disciples is fitting into a family through real relationships. They need accountability through relationships. They need to […]
