Firm Stand

Eph.6:10 “A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.” (emphasis added).

“All merit is with the Son, all power is with the Spirit”. I came across a saying a long time ago and I believe it wraps up what Paul is saying to us really well. Read the rest of this entry


Matt.12:20 “A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.” [KJV]

Please read John 20:1-20, it is key to our study in this season of Easter and key to victory at the crossroads. The events in this portion of scripture took place mainly around the grave. Read the rest of this entry

Identify and Eradicate

Isa.54:14 (KJV) “In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.”

Fear based distractions are not to be ignored. You have to deal with the fear. So today will be going to the source of many fears and I pray that God will eradicate fear from your life. Read the rest of this entry


Heb.10:35 “So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.” (NIV, with emphasis)

We will start our time in God’s Presence today with a story that someone shared with me. A certain stranger while riding across the country, decided to stop for a drink in a little town. Read the rest of this entry


Ps.124:2 (KJV) If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us 3 Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us… 6 Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.”

From Not For?

Matt. 11:12 (NKJV) And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.


For you to take delivery of your destiny, you have to engage in purposeful violent conflict that will drive the opposition away from a place where it is not wanted or needed. Read the rest of this entry

Cheap Candy

Prov. 18:7 (MSG) “Fools are undone by their big mouths; their souls are crushed by their words. Listening to gossip is like eating cheap candy; do you really want junk like that in your belly?”


You have to make sure that gossip has no place in your life. I strongly believe that not everyone that goes around gossiping is evil; some are, but most of them are just idle and ignorant.

Damaging Effects

1 Tim. 5:13 “They also learn to waste their time in going around from house to house; but even worse, they learn to be gossips and busybodies, talking of things they should not.”

Keep Your Word

Luke 16:10 “If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities.”


The battle with purity is actually a battle with decision-making. You need to be able to keep your words in the little promises such as – I will see you tomorrow by ten o’clock, I will bring groceries home, I will take out the trash and it will be done on time. Read the rest of this entry


Isa.43:13 “From eternity to eternity I am God. No one can snatch anyone out of my hand. No one can undo what I have done.”


There is a huge difference between sustaining a life that God has taken and taking a life that God is sustaining – huge difference! If God wants to take a person’s life, He alone reserves the right to do so. Read the rest of this entry
