From Prayer to Care

“Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away…so now faith, hope and love abide, these three: but the greatest of these is love.” -1 Corinthians 13:8 & 13  Love looks like something.   In a cultural climate that is wrought with spiritual oppression, broken spirits, politically charged tensions and socially immoral messages, the love of Christ to transcend trouble and transform hearts is of greatest need.  Love looks like Jesus.  While the natural response to these unignorable issues we encounter everyday would be to escape, God...

NDP Synergy

How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the Lord had shut them up? Deuteronomy 32:30  Synergy is the interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations, substances, or other agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects. When two or more people combine their efforts and strength, effectiveness is increased. Power is also multiplied! Prayer synergy occurs when two or more come together as one and agree in prayer. According to Deuteronomy 32:30, “One can chase a thousand, and two put ten... Read more >>

Liberty & Justice for All

“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty.” 2 Corinthians 3:16 Liberty and justice. If you’ve ever assimilated these words into the same sentence or verbalized “liberty and justice for all” – you’re one of many millions of Americans who have spoken these five words with patriotic fervor. There’s often even a compelling sense of oneness which inspires Americans when the words “liberty and justice” fluidly roll off their tongue reciting the final line in the “pledge of allegiance” to the flag. Once the National Day of Prayer Task Force unveiled its... Read more >>

Declaring a Firm Reliance on God

“When they heard this, they raised their voices together in prayer to God. “Sovereign Lord,” they said, “you made the heavens and the earth and the sea, and everything in them. You spoke by the Holy Spirit through the mouth of your servant, our father David: “‘Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed one. ’ Indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met together with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in this city to conspire against your...

True Love is Christ's Love

“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself for her.” Ephesians 5:25 June is one of the most popular months for weddings, especially this year as people are eager to gather and celebrate the union of a new husband and wife. I had the joy of being a part of the June wedding statistic: I married my husband two weeks ago on June 6th in a beautiful chapel ceremony surrounded by our dearest loved ones. As we prepared for the day, we weren’t just preparing for a big party. We were preparing to make a holy... Read more >>

I Will Be A Father To You

“And I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to Me,” Says the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:18 NASB Father. The very word itself raises up many emotions as we look forward to this coming Sunday, and the celebration of ‘fathers’ on Father’s Day. Some grew up with fathers that we loved and admired, not perfect men, but men who did the best they could to provide for us, protect us, to be good examples, and to teach us. Men who were our heroes when we were little and our cheerleaders and coaches as we grew... Read more >>

At the Table of Fellowship

“For the One who sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one Father. That is why Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers.” Hebrews 2:11 The National Day of Prayer was a humbling time—it showed me how far I have to go in the faith, and how diverse the expressions of the Holy Spirit are in each person. I praise God that my heart was encouraged and challenged to keep running forward in the faith! As a younger believer, I’d be quick to tell anyone who asked that King David was my favorite person in Scripture, other than... Read more >>

God has called us NOW!

“But the Lord said to me, ‘Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I commanded you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you’” Jeremiah 1:7-8 Wow! God is GOOD! It has been such a joy to process what God spoke to me and taught me, and to hear the incredible things He has done and is doing across America. God is on the MOVE!!! We NEED each other. We need what God has given you, equipped you for, and called... Read more >>

The Meaning of Memorial Day

“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, Because the LORD has anointed me To bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to captives And freedom to prisoners;” Isaiah 61:1 NAS As we prepare to celebrate Memorial Day it is important to remember what this day is all about. For many people it marks the beginning of summer and is a chance to gather with family and friends and enjoy a long weekend.  It is important to remember that Memorial Day was set aside to remember those who have...

Something to Ponder on Pentecost

When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because... Read more >>
