When You Know What’s Right


Ever had a time when you knew what you were supposed to do … but you just did not do it? Sometimes, we know what God is telling us to do, but we have a hard time doing it. And when we intentionally do wrong, it affects ourselves, as well as others. Jonah is an example of a person who knew the right thing to do and he just could not do it. The Lord said, “I want you to go and help the Ninevites Read More

Time and Opportunity

Time & Opportunity

God wants us to change our perspective on “mammon” or the “mammon of unrighteousness.” “Mammon” is an umbrella term. It means our possessions, money, talents or anything of this world that perishes. In this parable, God shows us that it’s not our possessions, but our perspective on our possessions needs to be changed. “Now He was also saying to the disciples, ‘There was a rich Read More

Faith When No One is Looking


The Lord is looking for people of genuine faith — men and women who have a faith that is clear-to-the-bone and authentic. These people naturally attract others by their lifestyle. They also attract the presence of someone supremely important — God. “Oh, Lord, who may abide in thy tent and who may dwell on thy holy hill? He who walks with integrity, works righteousness and speaks truth in his Read More

When Prayers Don’t Get Answered

When Prayers

Sometimes when we pray, we receive answers the way we expect. Other times when we pray, we don’t. Paul the apostle prayed to God three times to remove the thorn in his flesh. We don’t know exactly what the thorn was or whether it was something physical or spiritual. God answered Paul’s cries by saying, “… My grace is sufficient for you …” (2 Cor. 12:9). Like Paul, there are others Read More

The Gift of Youth

The Gift of

There are seasons in our lives that all of us will go through and one if them is the season of youth. And then you will go into single adulthood, then for some, marriage and family, and then golden years. These are seasons and we will see that there is a season of youth that comes with a wonderful privilege, but it also comes with an assignment.

Discovering Your Success Potential

discovering your

The Bible says our dreams, hopes and potentials are God-given treasures. “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves” (2 Cor. 4:7). God is saying to us that He put the treasure of dreams, hopes, vision and a potential for success in each one of us. When we realize this, we should say, “This dream is not Read More

Waiting on the Promises


Microwave ovens! Cell phones! E-mail! Fast food! We live in an age where we want things instantaneously. As it is with our culture, we have the same expectation in our relationship with God. We say, “I want it now, God! I want a fast God — not a slow God!” We want to take shortcuts; we think God is too slow! But God is not slow. He is patient! There is a purpose for waiting. “The Lord Read More

The Gift of Listening

The Gift of Listening

There are some things that are scarce and very valuable. These are things like respect, honesty and leadership. One of the things that is most scarce these days is listening. God says that listening is a very commendable thing and He talks about it often in the Bible. The Eyes of Our Heart Listening is something really commendable and God speaks about invisible ears that we need to develop. “… Read More

Setting Your Course


God has plans for our future. Do you think He would like you to know those plans? Absolutely! He would not have plans and then not reveal them. So, if God has plans for our new year, do you think you should know them? Yes! How are you going to walk in faith if you do not know His plans? How are you going to be obedient? “‘I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans not Read More

Becoming a Leader in Your Own Home

Becoming a Leader in Your Own Home

As we delve into the topic of leadership, I’d like to introduce you to one of the very first young leaders in the Church. His name was Timothy. Timothy was one of the converts that came to know the Lord under Paul’s ministry. Timothy became not only a strong Christian, but he eventually became a pastor. Timothy must have written to Paul one day and asked, “Paul, if someone wants to be a Read More
