Because of the Love


Today I’d like to read the beginning and the end of Psalm 133. “Behold, how good, and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!…For there the Lord commanded the blessing—life for evermore.”

The Lord Jesus Christ is giving me a new love and appreciation for His church, His body. Instead of focusing on what could divide us, I now find in my heart a willingness to see the greater good; the blessing of life that is promised of God when we learn to walk hand in hand with others who promote the cause of Christ.

May Almighty God give us maturity this coming year, to the point where the lost will see God because of the love that we have one for another. There are many good things that we could do for His Name’s sake, but the greatest we could do is love each other.

It’s time to pray.

I Submitted My Thoughts


Isaiah, chapter 55, verse eight and nine: “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

Now, I don’t know about you, but when I came to Christ, I submitted my thoughts to the Word of God. If I thought something was right, and God said it was wrong, then it became wrong. It’s really that simple. Submit your thoughts and your ways to God. Let’s be a people of the Word of God. Allow the Word of God to be the source of your thinking.

Join with us every Tuesday night, 7:00 PM ET at itstimetopray.org, where people from 210 countries and dependencies are praying and believing God with us, that we can become His people on the earth again and make a huge change in our generation.

The Kingdom of God Is Advanced by Ordinary People


The kingdom of God is not advanced through human strategy or human ingenuity. The kingdom of God is advanced by ordinary people like you and me.

As you begin to read the Bible and talk to God, He’s going to start talking to you. He’s going to raise you up out of weakness and give you strength. He’s going to take you into places to do things that you never believed you could do, and it will bring glory to His name because you know, and others will know, that only God could have done this through you.

I believe that in our generation, no matter how dark it gets, God is going to raise up an army one last time to bring glory to His name and we are going to be part of that army. So, take heart. It’s not about your strength, it’s about the strength of God. It’s not about your courage, it’s about God’s courage that He would place in your heart. Everything is about Him and all things come through Him.

Remember, it’s now time to pray.

We Say God Can, Let’s Live Like He Will


Numbers, chapter 14, verse 4: “So they said to one another, ‘Let us select a leader and return to Egypt.’ Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel.”

Once before in history, a people just like us were given a promise that the impossible could become possible. Faced with what seemed to be overwhelming odds, they concluded that freedom was out of reach and opted instead for captivity. The choice they made destined them to live and die in a spiritually barren place.

Today, you and I are being called to pray. Before us, stands a spiritual tyranny which threatens future generations. For the sake of America’s children, we must go forward. We say that God can, let’s live like He will.

I Live to See You Raised Up


The voice of God, the army of God, and the Church of God has been rendered, in a sense, powerless against the voices of darkness that are becoming dominant in our society.

The psalmist, David, lived in a society where he, too, saw evil becoming dominant. However, he was concerned about the power of God, the glory of God, and the reputation of God being made known again in his time.

I, too, share those concerns. I live to see you raised up in the power of God; to see the Church of Jesus Christ becoming a force to be reckoned with in our society once more. When the presence of God is in the house of God again, no fanciness is needed because the presence of God is enough.

It’s time the Church rises up and pushes back against the evil that’s trying to swallow up our churches, our families, and our nation. Remember, my brother, my sister, God is willing to use you, if you will just pray.

Easter


This Easter, I want to remind you of a scripture in the book of Revelation that was spoken to many, many of God’s people in their different churches. “He who has ears to hear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches.”

Now, God was speaking to His people. Some of them, He was warning to turn away from certain things that were sapping away their strength. To many others, He was giving them incredible promises of strength and power that was going to be given to them in the future to do and accomplish things that only could be done through the presence of the Holy Spirit in their lives.

This Easter, I want to be able to hear what God is speaking to my heart. I want to move from faith to faith. I want to be taken from where I am, into the very place where God promises He will take me and give me the words and the strength to glorify His name. In order to do this, I need to be a man of prayer. You need to be a person of prayer.

It’s time to pray.
