Expecting the Increase
Expecting the Increase Are you expecting an increase in 2019? Are you expecting God to do more and more each year and do you expect personal and professional growth?! The podcast, Expecting the Increase, was a spontaneous message captured in Cincinnati that challenged everyone to consider how increase is a law of the Spirit. In Mark chapter 4, Jesus tells a parable about a man who throws seeds onto the earth and day and night, whether the man sleeps or works, the seeds sprout. That no...
This Is Me, Part 2
This is Me Part 2 The story of the woman caught in the act of adultery in John 8 gives us a great picture of all the different perceptions that we face on a daily basis. In this story, there was the opinion of those who were doing the stoning, the opinion of the crowd, and the opinion of Jesus. However, the only opinion that matters in that moment is the one the woman chooses to agree with. What she chooses to believe is what will form her paradigm. Will she believe that she is not...
This Is Me, Part 1
This is Me Part 1 No doubt The Greatest Showman inspired all of us with its theme of loving who you are, no matter the perception of the world. It presents the idea of being willing to go against the grain, challenging status quo with no concern for the world’s paradigm. I believe the song, This is Me was a hit because it gives permission to be proud of who you are and the beauty of your creation. The lyrics declare that there IS indeed purpose for everyone just as you are…no matter...
Power of a Vision
The Power of a Personal Vision The Bible says in Proverbs, “A people without and vision perish.” Whether you realize it or not, we all live by vision. I am not talking about vision of the eye, but rather vision of the heart. Even those who don’t seem to have any unction or passion for life, still have vision, they have just taken their eye off of it… or maybe have yet to discover it. But, the reality is, it is our mind’s eye that stirs us to prosper in life; it is our intentional act of...
Knowing the Person of God
Knowing the Person of God There is a difference between the works of God and the person of God. I am personally inspired by Moses in the book of Exodus to seek more of who God is. After seeing the multiple miracles of God and being a part of the manifestation of those works, Moses still had a yearning inside of him to see even more of God. It was like he knew that all the miracles were simply the arm of God, and he wanted to see His heart, His nature, and know His person. Thus the...
Power of a Story
The Power of a Story When I was recently asked to give my testimony, I wanted to be sure that the audience didn’t walked away just learning about me, but rather learning about their own God possibilities. I wanted them to sense the stirrings of their own dreams within their hearts and imagine the power of their own stories; stories that were established before they were born… ordained and written in a book. (Psalm 139) Stories hold much power. They are more than just the giving of...
Activate Your Breakthrough
Activate Your Breakthrough I think it is fair to say that we have all experienced times when we know God has promised something, but you just can’t get seem to breakthrough to your “promised land.” It is times like this that we are prone to discouragement, doubt, and weariness, to name a few. Simply put, waiting for a breakthrough can be so frustrating! Often times, in the waiting, we find ourselves in a situation where we feel “trapped” and see no way out. We feel like no matter what...
