Loneliness

“The Holy Spirit led Jesus into the lonely wilderness in order to reveal his strength against the accuser.” Matthew 4:1 TPT I think people often overlook the value and treasure, that is, loneliness.  I’ve said this before. I thank God that I get hungry. Because if I were never hungry, I would never eat. And […]

God, Help

Much like King David in the Psalms, we cry out for help, yet the feelings of despair sometimes remain. We see and know God is answering prayer, yet why don’t our feelings always follow suit? The reason is God is helping, but you need to tune your eyes to the way He is responding to […]

Daddy Issues

Doing something for you, bringing something to you—    that’s not what you’re after.Being religious, acting pious—    that’s not what you’re asking for.You’ve opened my ears    so I can listen. It’s not sacrifices that really move your heart.Burnt offerings, sin offering—that’s not what brings you joy.But when you open my ears and speak deeply to me,I become your willing […]

What God Wants To Give

God sees what we’re genuinely hungry for, He has waited for our spirits to cry out, and now He’s answering […]

Lent

I’ve been thinking about Lent, mainly from overhearing conversations about what people are going to give up. Traditionally I am against how people talk about fasting today because it’s essentially become a “hunger strike” to most. It’s a good thing God grades on effort sometimes. He may admire your heart, but your hunger strike isn’t […]

Abundance

“I know what it means to lack, and I know what it means to experience overwhelming abundance. For I’m trained in the secret of overcoming all things, whether in fullness or in hunger. And I find that the strength of Christ’s explosive power infuses me to conquer every difficulty.” Perspective is the fruit of knowing […]

Gifts Are Cool But He Is Better

Someone recently told me how they wanted the gift of prophecy. The request of this person was not a grand display of dramatic pursuit, screaming out to God. But their delivery was with a purity which boldly whispered their inner affections, a way which I knew they had made up their mind and their inner-man […]

He’s Bigger Than You Think, Better Than You Believe, And ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE To Those Who Believe.

I have had this phrase burning inside me for months. “He’s bigger than you think, better than you believe, and ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE to those who believe.”  The most exciting thing I have watched this year is God’s ability to speak to people on His own. The world doesn’t need more preachers or life […]
