TGIF- When Changes Come

This week I was informed that some major changes were coming in my life. My job site is moving to a new location changing my commute, two of my favorite coworkers are leaving for other jobs, and my responsibilities at work will be expanding for several months. None of these are bad things but when […]

TGIF-A Holy Moment with our King

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary, and they shall walk, and not faint. -Isaiah 40:31King James Version Recently I was wrestling with a time of spiritual weariness. As a bi-vocational Pastor, you can get overwhelmed […]

TGIF-Perfect Love Cast Out All Fear

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. -1 John 4:18 Love (Agape, divine perfect love) versus fear, the battle of the ages. Fear is a normal state of our fallen nature. Fear of the dark, […]

TGIF-But I Am Not Good Enough For Someone To Love Me

The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee. Jeremiah 31:3 (KJV) One of the great truths that one of my ministry mentors, Bishop David M Copeland, imparted to me, was that far too many people, especially women, will […]

Once Daniel was brought in for consultation, he understood that the King’s dream was a prophetic warning of God’s impending judgment against Nebuchadnezzar for […]

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.

And ye shall seek me, and find me when ye shall search for me with all your heart. -Jeremiah 29:13(KJV) Recently I was listening to a local Christian radio station on the ride home from bible study. I was disappointed in how few of the songs gave Christ even a passing mention. In spite of […]

Can We Grasp the Holiness of God?

And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory!” ~ Isaiah 6:3 Before the throne, there was a sea of glass, like crystal. And in the midst of the throne, and around the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes […]

They Had Been With Jesus…

By Wes Mason Now when they saw the boldness and unfettered eloquence of Peter and John and perceived that they were unlearned and untrained in the schools [common men with no educational advantages], they marveled; and they recognized that they had been with Jesus. ~ Acts 4:13 (AMP) In today’s church world, we put WAYYYYY […]

TGIF-GOD EVEN USES WICKED PEOPLE TO DO HIS WILL

And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar, Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from him. -Daniel 2:2 This story in the 2nd Chapter of the book of Daniel is an amazing example of God using whomever he wills to accomplish his purposes- even evil leaders. Daniel […]
