So Great a Love

So Great a Love

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13

When we love God in response to His love for us, everything changes. What and how I give back to Him are only partial expressions of my love. I also love Him in my service, in my worship, in my dedication, in my obedience, in my relationships – in everything. If my […]

The Answer to Fear

I’ve received so many responses to the “Faith, Not Fear” message last week. Especially in light of the tragedy that happened in Las Vegas over the weekend, along with the overwhelming challenges faced by recent hurricanes, earthquakes, and wildfires.

Even as our hearts have been broken over what is taking place recently and we continue to mourn over the loss and heartache, God has continued to burn the message in my heart so heavily for […]

How To Receive Your Miracle

How To Receive Your Miracle

Have you ever thought that it’s easier to believe God will work a miracle for someone else than to believe He’ll work one for you?

A woman wrote me not long ago and shared that she was a well-educated person who had made a large income—until her crack cocaine addiction ruined her life! She said that she “lived with crooks and collected aluminum cans to pay for her habit”! But […]

What are you facing today?

The Bible is filled with many glorious accounts of miracles revealing the numerous occasions during the ministry of Jesus when He supernaturally intervened in people’s lives.

Time after time in the midst of impossible circumstances, Jesus brought hope and healing to the lives of men, women, and children wherever He went.

In Mark 5, after the crowd was amazed to see the woman with an issue of blood healed, there were undoubtedly many others […]

Joy In His Presence

Joy In His Presence

It was a major time of transition in my life, and things didn’t appear to be working out. I was working for a ministry, but was having a hard time making ends meet. I was getting by month-to-month, but just barely.

I was having a hard time maintaining my joy.
I grew up in a Christian family and learned at an early age that joy was not dependent on circumstances. […]

What began with a jar of faith…

God is doing something truly remarkable among believers today, with an extraordinary anointing for financial miracles.

A recent note from a man in Australia included this exciting praise report:

Miracles have taken place in my work circumstances. My employer was having struggles, causing problems with me getting paid. We remained faithful in our giving, and I just got a lovely note from my CEO. God has worked a miracle. I am now getting paid again regularly. […]

Gravitational Pull

Few things are more amazing to watch than a jumbo jetliner taking off!

I’ve spent hundreds of hours a year in the air, but I can tell you that the sight of nearly a million pounds of metal, rubber, glass, and hundreds of miles of electrical wire defying gravity as it takes off never ceases to amaze me.

I’ve talked to many pilots through the years, and even though they’ve done it hundreds of times, […]

Apply The Remedy For Rejection

Apply The Remedy For Rejection

Accept yourself. Sometimes this is the hardest step of all. I tell Christians, “Never belittle yourself. Never criticize yourself. You did not make yourself. God made you.”
Ephesians 2:10 tells us, “We are God’s workmanship.”
The Greek word translated here as “workmanship” is poiema, from which we derive the English word poem. It suggests an artistic achievement. We are God’s masterpieces. Of all God created, He has devoted the most time […]

What’s ahead for the New Year

“Why aren’t believers around the world experiencing the presence of the Holy Spirit?” a well-known pastor asked me recently.

“Hunger!” I answered immediately.

My thoughts went quickly to my recent trip to Nigeria, with glorious services and packed crowds everywhere I went. In one service alone, 8,000 pastors gathered from all over the region. The hunger I saw among these ministers of the Gospel was truly amazing.

That happened all over Nigeria. Not only in the pastors […]
