Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day! This day isn’t exclusively for couples, but for everyone! It’s a day when you can express love to God, your loved ones, and to yourself. “Love the Lord your God with every passion of your heart, with all the energy of your being, and with every thought that is within you.” (Matthew

Taste of Freedom

What sweet taste of freedom as we breath in the atmosphere of heaven–Sarah Soon Do you feel loved? Please don’t give the expected answer, “Of course I do,” without meditating on the answer. Instead, ask the Holy Spirit, “Do I feel loved?” Do you allow God’s love to cultivate? For me, it’s a journey. For I’ve

Love is a Weapon

What has more destructive power than a nuclear bomb? What can eradicate disease in a single touch? What can eliminate depression? God’s love. His love is so expansive that nothing can hide from its force. Like a team of Navy Seals going into a terrorist cell and slaying all the ISIS fighters in one campaign.

World Seeks Our Beauty

For he enjoys his faithful lovers. He adorns the humble with his beauty and he loves to give them the victory. (Psalms 149:4 TPT) Do you know you’re beautiful? As we identity ourselves as a newborn spirit, the ravages of the sin nature on our physical, mental, and emotional states gets healed. This is a

Know Your Bloodline

An Orphan: A child whose parents are dead. Before we were born again, we were orphans. Our fallen human spirit isn’t in God’s bloodline. We were cut off from our inheritance God originally intended for all mankind. Yet Love rescued us. Not by giving us a handout, but adopting us when we accepted Jesus. This would

Let’s Make 2017 a Year of Transformation

My prayer for you: 2017 will be a year of transformation.  A year where you advance past belief systems that held you back. With God’s grace, let’s do this! Why? How? Are you sure? Yes! God’s grace is with us: So now we come freely and boldly to where love is enthroned, to receive mercy’s kiss

What Promise Are You Believing For?

Happy New Year! This year I want to press into the promises of God. Not just the specific ones he’s given me — those are important, but the ones he promises to all believers. What I’ve realized about these promises in the word is: they’re not just about us. It’s about manifesting Jesus in the

Live in the Palace

What are you willing to sacrifice to see a dream come to pass? Your hang ups and habits? Your comfort zone? Your securities in other things instead of on God? Have you ever considered that it’s the Holy Spirit prompting you to let go of your habits, securities, and personal sandbox to live in the

Why We Are the Offensive

From the moment John stepped onto the scene until now, the Kingdom of Heaven is entered into by force, and passionate people have taken hold of its power. (Matthew 11:12 TPT) When Jesus came into the earth as a human, he made a clear demarcation between the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of this

Will You Trust Me?

“Not one promise from God is empty of power, for with God there is no such thing as impossibility!” Luke 1:37 TPT Christmas is a reminder that Christ came to earth to usher the Kingdom of God. This was the first time God came to us as a man. In other words, the impossible became

God Is Home

Christmas. It’s a reminder of what lengths our Father God took to restore his lost children. He sacrificed himself to restore us. He didn’t send an angel to perform the work. Nor did he wave his hand to make it happen. He physically sent a part of himself, through his son, to become human. He

He’s Got This

You’ve gone into my future to prepare the way,  (Psalms 139:5a TPT*) I’ve recently moved. Even writing this is a miracle because I don’t like to move. Just the thought of moving deterred me from considering living somewhere else. But before the end of last year, I became so dissatisfied with my current residence that

Living in Freedom from the Future and Past

You’ve gone into my future to prepare the way, And in kindness you follow behind me, To spare me from the harm of my past.  (Psalms 139:5a TPT*) What do you have to fear? Your future? No, because God’s already gone there to prepare the way. If we look back at our lives, we often

Do you know the Depth of His Love for You? Part I

You are so intimately aware of me, Lord. You read my heart like an open book And you know all the words I’m about to speak Before I even start a sentence. (Psalms 139: 3 TPT) When I read this passage from The Passion Translation, the words “jumped off” the page. God’s awareness and love

Don’t Stand on the Sidelines

Happy Election Day! I have incredible news. We serve the most powerful and effective Kingdom. No, not the United States government, but the Kingdom of God. A Kingdom whose power supersedes all the earthly kingdoms. For nations, rulers, and Presidents come and go, but God’s kingdom is everlasting. For he rules on high over the

Declare God’s Goodness to the World

The church needs to come out of its shell and declare and demonstrate to the world that God is good. For too long, the church has become like monks in a monastery, segregating from the world. Instead of congregating with the lost, it’s became a subculture. We have our sanitary Christian world where we don’t

Is God Always Good?

Is God always good? Ask Davie Blackburn. In 2012, he and his wife, Amanda, moved from South Carolina to plant a church in Indianapolis. They felt led by God to go on this new journey. Three years later, on November 10, 2015, Davey came home from the gym to discover Amanda, three-months pregnant, lying on the floor

Why experiencing the Goodness of God Transforms Your World

“If He is as good as many claim, how we respond to this truth will require a massive change in how we do life.” (Bill Johnson, God is Good, pg 32). Imagine what our lives would be like if we knew that, in every circumstance, God is good. I’ve said, “God is good” numerous times, but

He’s the Most Patient One

But Lord, your nurturing love is tender and gentle. You are slow to get angry, yet so swift to show your faithful love, you are full of abounding grace and truth. (Psalms 86:15 TPT) Consider how much patience Jesus had when he was walking the earth. He’s living daily with his disciples, who are sinners,

Can I Trust You, God?

Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions. With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make. (Proverbs 3:5 TPT*) “I trust you, Lord.” I’ve said this many times. Sometimes that statement is said in earnest excitement, like “Hey,
