How an Encounter with God Changes Everything

The prophet Isaiah had a crisis encounter with God in Isaiah 6 that defined his calling. When Isaiah encountered God's holiness and presence, he cried out, “I'm doomed. I have filthy lips.” Isaiah got a revelation of his own sin in God's presence.

“Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.” Isaiah 6:5

How to Attract God's Presence

In my last post, I shared how the Hebrew translation of “presence” is “turning of the face toward.” When Moses asked for God's presence to go with him and the people, he was asking for God to turn His face toward him. Moses wasn't the first person who experienced God's presence on an intimate level.

Turn God's Face Towards You

Our ministry's anointing is to equip people to carry the presence of God. God is omnipotent and He is everywhere. Moses was a carrier of God's presence but his desire was that the people would also personally experience His presence. Moses prayed...

Create a Story

Do you remember the last time you read or heard a struggle-victory story? Like a real life testimony of someone overcoming negative circumstances, great or small, that soon sealed in a sweet victory?

A light for you this Christmas

I love the Christmas story and the many promises all wrapped up in Jesus’ birth! Isaiah 9:2 reads, “The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.”

He is light and he is LIFE. Isaiah 9:6-7 says He is the Son who was given to us! He is the Wonderful Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.

Everything we want or need is all wrapped up in Him!

Do you need wisdom? He is your Counselor. Do you need divine intervention? He is the Almighty!

Receive hope and receive your healing

Are you hurting or in pain? Is there a loved one in your life that’s sick? Sickness doesn’t always come in the form of disease – sometimes it’s your heart or soul that’s sick. No matter what the situation, there is Great Physician available for you and his name is Jesus.

Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.” He is the One who “went throughout Galilee… healing every disease and sickness among the people.” Whether you’re physically sick or heart sick, he is the Doctor you need. (See Matthew 9:11, 4:23.)

How to keep your fire burning in difficult times

There are two kinds of fire in life - the good Holy Spirit fire that helps us burn for the Lord and the fire of affliction, adversity, pain and sorrow. For some, fiery trials can be fire-quenchers, squelching your godly fire out. For others, trials can strengthen the very fiber of your being.

You can go through the trials and come out with your Holy Spirit fire burning bright – or you can allow the fires of adversity to snuff out any smoldering wick you may have left. You have to decide that trial and tribulation will not rob you of your calling and your hope.

Seize the opportunity for goodness

There is an opportunity at hand to do something good! The Bible encourages us, “Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the household of faith.” Galatians 6:10

When God sends opportunity, He also sends a responsibility. We are responsible to respond to the moment! When the chance comes your way to do something good, you’ve got to grab it and do it and take good care of the people in your life – especially other believers.

Faith that treasures

I’m compiling a prayer book for my dad, filled with pictures of those dear to him: family, friends, our wonderful staff pastors at World Revival Church… Though he’s in his later years, his faith is strong. He’s expecting great things as he brings these treasured names and faces before the throne of grace. Wouldn’t you like to be on his list?

There is a faith that treasures.  If you love and serve the Lord, you are HIS treasured possession. He will fight for you, watch over you and protect you as someone near and dear to Him.
