A Deeper Walk with Him

As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?  —Psalm 42:1-2
Jesus Christ has already paid the price for us to walk and talk intimately with God the Father. For believers, it is a privilege, not a price. Only when we understand that can He become our greatest delight and His […]

A Relationship with Jesus

A Relationship with Jesus

Early in my ministry, while I was kneeling in prayer, God gave me a vision that seemed as real as life itself. I saw myself standing alone, totally crippled. My body was twisted and there was a dark atmosphere that surrounded me. Close to me stood Jesus. He was uttering only one word: “Come!” During the vision I said to myself, “Why doesn’t the Lord come and touch me?” The Lord, however, […]

Standing Strong When Tragedy Strikes

Standing Strong

More often than not, tragedy and adversity hit us without warning, like a violent, unexpected storm that leaves a person reeling from the sudden impact. Here in Oklahoma, it seems as though the weather can change in an instant. One minute, the summer sun is shining brightly, and a warm breeze is blowing. Then, only a short time later, the sky is dark, and huge drops of cold rain are crashing to […]

Divine Protection and Provision

Arise and Shine

God’s Word tells us:
“Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee…. Darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee” (Isaiah 60:1-2).
What does this mean specifically for you today? You are a covenant person! And as a covenant person, God has promised to take care of […]

Intercession For Your Family

Abraham was a righteous man who knew how to talk to God. Abraham and his nephew Lot lived on the same land for some time. When it became too crowded for them to dwell together, Lot was given the choice of where to live. He chose Sodom, an extremely wicked, worldly place. Later, God forewarned Abraham that He was going to destroy Sodom. Lot went about his daily routine in wicked Sodom totally unaware of […]

Eagle Christians Victorious in Christ

The Bible has much to say about the mighty eagle:
As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings: So the Lord alone did lead him.    —Deuteronomy 32:11-12 There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not: The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a […]

Your Greatest Insurance

The world’s greatest nations have been negatively impacted by excessive government spending, heavy taxation, and moral disregard for God’s principles. Unless we begin to pray and follow the scriptural imperatives set forth in the Word of God, the results of these actions could be devastating. Nations simply cannot spend more than they take in. No country can run up the largest credit card bills in human history and expect no consequences.

Harsh Realities

We know that if […]

Jesus is the Source Who Can Fill You

Coming to Jesus is so simple, so powerful, and so life changing, yet believers are often kept from a deeper relationship with the Holy Spirit by distractions and the daily cares of this life. Nevertheless, we must daily persist in seeking the Lord’s presence, because healing, restoration, and total recover are found in Him. A.W. Tozer, called a twentieth-century prophet, had a great impact on the body of Christ. He said:
If we progress spiritually, we […]

Walking the Way of Salvation

What is involved in having a life-changing, personal relationship with Christ? Let’s begin by examining what took place when Peter met the Lord:
“When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. He saith unto them, But whom […]
