Praying from the heart, even for a second, sending a request to our Heavenly Father, brings tremendous dynamic results according to James 5:16. Praying what God wants for our lives is what I call ‘transforming prayer’ or ‘praying strategically’. It will always be birthed by God from deep within your heart.
Yet the state of our hearts can change radically in a moment, from faith to fear. Something unexpectedly confronts us maybe that brings new circumstances for us to deal with, that may even achieve a devastating blow to us. In a moment we are in fear and confusion, without focus, with no faith. This new challenge we face may and indeed can, change the way we think, feel, or see life, and cause us to ask the questions. What should we do? Where do we run to? To whom do we turn to for wisdom and counsel?
For me the answer to these questions has been God and His Word for many years now. God has counselled me through His Word hundreds of times, and always His wisdom has come, and liberally. God’s Word has given me tremendous peace, direction and solutions have always come to answer difficulties that I have faced, even under the greatest of pressures.
This section has been put together with the idea of equipping you for a more effective prayer life.
AIA (Above it All) is a magazine style series of programs designed to teach the effectiveness and importance of prayer. It shows viewers how to be involved in effective prayer, and helps them grow wherever they are, facing the circumstances of their own lives. The testimonies from others are important of how, through prayer, […]
Military might does not make a mighty nation, but rather moral might makes a nation mighty. Proverbs 13:34 tells us that righteousness is what exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people. Our nation as with all nations needs to understand that their legacy will not be seen from the perspective of their humanly wise legislations, […]
When I think of nations I can’t help but remember that they are but a drop in a bucket to God. Think about that. How huge is God’s scope of vision? How utterly immense is His authority over all of creation? While it may be very difficult for any of us to imagine, God can save a nation, in a solitary day.
The familiar passage in Isaiah […]
I was deeply impacted by a statement Rick Joyner said at one of our conferences. He spoke of how part of God’s end time strategy that is being missed by many, is that He is releasing “wise men and scribes” to the Body of Christ. We’re so busy trying to define apostles and prophets sometimes that we miss old fashioned wise men that […]
Publishing began in scripture. Proclamation of daily events has occurred throughout history through town criers and couriers. There was a day when to intentionally communicate a falsehood meant loss of work, if not loss of life. While there is only one absolute source of truth, the Word of God without one lie in it, many listen to the lou […]
No one likes to talk much about money. In fact it is downright offensive to some. Yet while faith is the currency of heaven, money is the currency on earth with which we live and eat. Why do we have such a problem believing that our Heavenly Father, in all His wisdom and understanding, wouldn’t want to provide for us materially as much […]
God has given His promise that those who follow Him shall not want. While we may go through times of horrific privation, remember that we will go through them; not stay in them. Throughout all scripture it can be proven that the sequenced ordered outcome of righteous living always produced an abundance of provision.
God doesn’t want the […]
In James 3:1 the scripture gives an admonition to “be not many masters” or teachers, “knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.” It spoke of those whose authority or anointing drew large numbers of listeners to them, and therefore followers. Of course Paul spoke strongly in the pastoral epistles of the responsibiliti […]
Leadership is not ownership, but stewardship. God spoke and said He bestowed gifts upon men, and these gifts were varied; apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers. Any who occupy such offices of spiritual leadership does so due to God’s grace and gift to them. The office is God’s to give, and man’s to steward well.
Sometimes it is easy to understand the person who said, “I wouldn’t mind going to church, if I didn’t have to deal with people.” Some of God’s people are definitely more peculiar than others. That’s understandable though as some are brand new, some are barely walking in the faith, and some are super saints. All of them can get […]
