The Lighthouse


Psalms 119, verse 130: “The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple.

For many years, lighthouses have stood as beacons of hope for fearful travelers seeking refuge in a time of storm. I can see the beam offering comfort and hope to those who might be praying for one more chance to live.

I can see something else too. I see the lighthouse keeper daily climbing the stairs to the top of the lighthouse, to make sure that the light is the brightest when it is needed the most. Truly, if he were negligent or if for some reason locked out of the lighthouse, the light would eventually go out.

Jesus said to you and I, that we are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. It’s time to let the Word of God in.

It’s time to pray.

Pray with Thanksgiving


I encourage you, as the Apostle Paul once did, to pray with thanksgiving this Thanksgiving. Philippians, chapter four, beginning at verse six, says, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your request be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

There’s no other way to pray with thanksgiving than to know the heart of God and begin to understand that it’s in His heart to give you the things that you ask for, so that you and I can become the people that God calls us to be in our generation.

We’re called to be lights in the darkness. We’re called to be healing in a very wounded and broken time. We’re called to be signposts for the people who really don’t know where they’re going in this time. This Thanksgiving, pray with thanksgiving because God is going to answer you.

The Quiet Whispers of God


First Kings, chapter 19, beginning at verse 12: “And after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a small still voice. So it was, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. Suddenly a voice came to him, and said, ‘What are you doing here, Elijah?’

There’s no need to run anywhere when you get discouraged. God will meet you right where you are. Though you would like a fresh encounter with Him to be a magnificent event, most often the deepest comfort to be found is in the quiet whispers of God to your heart. In them, you will rediscover the strength to go on. God promises to walk with you and in His strength, you will find joy and purpose again. Get up today from where you are. There are still things ahead that only you are called to do.

May the Grace of God Cause Your Cup to Overflow


King David says in Psalm 23, verse five, “You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.

There’s a cup of anointing in the lives of those who say “yes” to God. This cup overflows our natural abilities, our own reasonings and strength. It’s a cup that can be extended to others who thirst for life, for God, who thirst for peace and love, but don’t even know it.

This anointing allows those who have said “yes” to move in the realm that only God can move them into. For a generation of those thirsty for true life, may the grace of God cause your cup to overflow to those who need it the most.

Every Tuesday night at 7:00 PM Eastern Time at tsc.nyc, you can join us for our Worldwide Prayer Meeting. We are praying for the grace of God to touch our lives in such a way that it will overflow to people all around us. We believe that God is able.

If You Could Only See the Difference


Have you ever wondered what kind of a difference that your life could make? If you could only see the difference that your life could make. Some people will get to the throne of God one day, and only on that day will they finally have a vision of what their life could have been. If they would’ve just taken the path that God had set before them. If they would have refused to bow down to their struggles and saw something a little bit bigger than the place where they presently were.

I want to challenge you to get fed up with the place that you are in today. Pray that the Holy Spirit would put a fight in you to get out of that place and into the place that God has for you. It’s time to believe God for everything He has for your life. It’s time to believe God to be all that He’s calling both you and me to be. This is a kingdom of the supernatural. It’s a kingdom of the miraculous. You find it when you pray.

It’s time to pray.

We Will Stand


Psalms 20, beginning at verse 7: “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; But we will remember the name of the Lord our God. They have bowed down and fallen; But we have risen and stand upright. Save, Lord! May the King answer us when we call.

In the thousands of years of biblical history, you and I know without any doubt, this one thing: God answers prayer. He has shown that He can do all things for those who call out to Him. From stopping the movement of the sun for Joshua, to whispering words of comfort to a mother sorrowing for her children. When we pray, nothing is too big or too small to move His heart and His hand. Today, remember that when others around you see their trust failing and falling, you are promised that in Christ, you will stand.

It’s time to pray.
