Everyday as I continue this amazing journey of following Jesus, I become increasingly convinced there is not a single pursuit greater than Him. (John 17:3). This life is the shortest thing we will ever do in the light of eternity. One day we will all stand before Jesus, and we will either hear the tender voice of a Bridegroom or the fatal voice of a Judge. (Matt 25:23, Matt 7:23). The voice you hear on that day is completely dependent upon what you choose to listen to now. You can either choose to listen to those who have a beginning…


Luke 10:39, 42; “…Mary, who also sat at Jesus’ feet and heard His word.” “…one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken from her.”

A few days ago when I was driving home from work, I began to feel the weight of some crucial decisions I had to make for myself, my family, and the ministry the Lord had given me to steward. These decisions had a lot of financial implications. The more I thought about these decisions, I began to feel substantial pressure in my head. (Luke 22:44). I was having…


Rev 1:14; “His head and His hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and His eyes were like flames of fire.”

God’s champion desire is your pure affection. Whenever there is a competition for your affection between the Lord and something else, that struggle is the revealer of what you haven’t discovered in His presence. Competition for your heart’s affection completely ends when you see Him. The world has nothing to offer compared to His Presence. How do I see Him? You may ask… You see Him by choosing to pursue Him instead of everything else that is…


The determining success of every decision you make in life is completely dependent on the condition of your heart. Did you know that if you do the right thing with the wrong motives it negates the full reward? Our motives are the seeds we plant into our goals and relationships. Motives of the heart are the roads that lead us to our destinies. What you do is important, but the heart in which you do it is everything. One of Jesus’ first sermons was the Sermon on the Mount. (Matt 5:1–12). In this famous teaching Jesus unleashes the Beatitudes. Every…


Have you ever climbed to the top of a mountain? Have you beheld the majestic all-encompassing view from a mountaintop? Mountains are very significant in the word of God. Numerous denoting encounters with God took place on mountain tops. Abraham, Moses, Elijah, Isaac, Peter, John and even Jesus, just to name a few, all had milestone encounters with God on mountaintops. In order to go to deeper levels of revelation in God’s word you have to ask ‘why?’ with a pure and teachable heart. Never let your questions be accusations, let them be invitations to correction and enlightened perspective. Why…


1 Cor 15:57; “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Victory does not just happen. Victory carries a weighty price tag. In order for victory to be attained there must be discipline, belief, and patience. Discipline to stay focused and consistent. Belief to be unmoved by fickle emotions, ever changing circumstances, and contrary voices. Patience to resist hasty decision-making that would abort the process and forfeit the reward.

Victory is not merely overcoming adversity, victory is Jesus. A lifestyle of victory is the direct result of a personal relationship with Jesus. Jesus…


Luke 11:2; Jesus said, “This is how you pray: (1)Father, may (2)Your Name be kept holy. (3)May Your Kingdom come. (4)Your will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. (5)Give us each day the food we need, and (6)forgive us our sins, (7)as we forgive those who sin against us. (8)And don’t let us yield to temptation.”

When Jesus speaks, there are inexhaustible rivers of revelation springing forth from each word. (John 6:63 NKJV). This simple blueprint of prayer is layers upon layers of eternal truth. This prayer was not meant to be mindlessly repeated as a tradition…


Clarity, what a priceless possession… Everyday I purpose in my walk with the Lord to gain more clarity on my family’s calling and assignment on this planet. Clarity is God’s desire for you. God wants you to hear His voice more than you want to hear it. There are countless christians that are living in frustration knowing there is something more they are to do with their lives other than the mundane day to day. They are starving for clarity from Heaven whether they realize it or not. One of clarity’s definitions are; ‘freedom from darkness.’ The absence of clarity…


Matt 5:37; “But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes’ and your ‘No’ be ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.” Yes and No are two of the most powerful words known to man. These words are the gateways to our destinies. Yes and no are not enemies, but rather loyal companions that balance everything. Jesus does not say let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes’ or your ‘No’ be ‘No.’ He specifically uses the word ‘and’…Why…? When you say ‘Yes’ to someone you are simultaneously saying ‘No’ to someone else wether you realize it or not. The key…


God has called us to conquer, overcome, and live in perpetual victory. (Rom 8:37, 1 John 5:4, 1 Cor 15:57). One of the greatest avenues to secure and build this identity in our hearts is through prayer. The power of prayer is determined by how involved you believe God desires to be in your life. Lame prayer is the product of the belief that God is distant and disinterested. When you truly engage in communion with God, limits fall off like autumn leaves. Faith prayer knows God hears and answers. (Isa 65:24, Jer 29:12–13). Lame prayer whimsically hopes God hears…
