every promise in the book is mine

The Bible is filled with promises, promises of victory, promises of blessing, promises of peace, promises of prosperity, promises of health, you name it, and if it is good, then the Bible has a promise for it. Now some people will try to justify the fact that they are not experiencing these blessings by saying that these were written to the Jews, the chosen of God, or that these were Old Testament promises and are...read more

into the deep

God wants all of us to experience the deeper things of this life along with abundance of blessings. We are too quick to accept the bare minimums of just getting by. We tend to live on the surface, in the shallows of life and not down deep into the real issues and depths of life, where the blessings are.Jesus told Simon to do two things. He said for him to launch out into the deep...read more

breaking curses

There is a very definite similarity in family traits that can be seen from generation to generation. Skin type, texture and tone, hair and eye color, distinct facial features are all things that get passed from parent to child. There is a unique blending of these features as each new generation receives dominant genes from both mother and father to create a new and unique individual. This passing on of family traits has gone on...read more

blessing after blessing

I get so tired of hearing the skeptics and the doubters talk about how that God wants His people to barely get by. For some unknown reason to me, they cannot find it in themselves to believe that God is not only good, but that He delights in blessing His children.The devil has really done a snow job on some people. He has them thinking of God as a mean old miser who has plenty,...read more

pressing in

The kingdom of God, what an awesome concept. I am surprised that so few really know what it means to be a part of and partaker in this great powerful entity. The very name implies its wonderfulness, a realm in which God is King. Where is this realm? It is wherever there is anything, because God has created everything, and everything that God created is included in His kingdom. In other words, God rules, in...read more

he wants to bless you

God is in the blessing business. Contrary to the teaching that many have received, God is not mad at man. He is not withholding His best from us. In fact, the very opposite is true. God has already poured out His wrath and punished sin. Jesus bore the brunt of God’s wrath and the full penalty of sin on the cross so that God could pour out His love and blessing upon all mankind. The...read more

go ahead, ask him

I remember one time passing by the door to one of our bedrooms where the kids were playing. I heard them talking inside, and one was saying, “Go ahead, ask him.” Another said, ”No, you ask him.” This went on for a while and finally they decided that they would all come ask me. Now I really don’t remember what it was that was such a big deal that they were all nervous about asking...read more

the main business

The question has been asked many times, "What should be the main business of a Christian?" There are lots of answers and opinions about this, but there is really only one answer.The correct answer to the question can be found in the fact that the main business of man is God and his business! It seems that in this day of religious excitement, when we have had some indications of a stirring in the tops...read more

the fear factor

The Bible tells us in both the Old and New Testaments in several places that we, as Christians, are to live by faith.(Hab. 2:4, Rom. 1:17, Gal. 3:11, Heb. 10:38) It goes on to tell us that anything which is not of faith is sin. Most Christians don’t realize that to not live by faith is sin. You see, God is very emphatic about this, our lives are to be characterized by faith. (Trusting dependence...read more
