Being A Place Of Habitation

Aligning ourselves with the Holy Spirit so that we no longer serve as a place of visitation but as a place where the kingdom of God dwells can seem like a daunting endeavor. What does that place of love and empowerment look like, how does it interact with the world? A great example can be found in Acts 5:14-16 which states that people brought the sick into the streets so that when Peter’s shadow fell on people they might be healed. This wasn’t because of Peter but because he pursued the Lord so passionately that he became a place of dwelling for the Holy Spirit. People knew that there was something holy and powerful within him. So we should also be a habitation for the power of God. As His s

But God

If I asked, I would imagine most of of would not have to think very hard to think of a dream that died or a hope that went seemingly unfulfilled? Perhaps it is a word that you feel God spoke to you that hasn't moved forward but has apparently withered and died. Are there circumstances you have faced that you feel could have no possible positive outcome? We often allow these things to stunt the growth of our faith. We allow doubt, despair and disillusionment to overwhelm us and rob the seed of our faith. Life is hard, and life as a Christian is challenging. We do not come to salvation and suddenly walk a golden life untouched by the day to day issues of life. John 16: 33 tells us “I have told

Kingdom Power

Why do struggle with God’s ability to help us with trials and challenges we are facing? If we really look into our hearts I would say it’s because we question not God’s goodness but our worth. The expectations we use as a measuring stick are based on a faulty view of who we are. The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:17 that we are a new creation! All things that are old have passed away. That means the measuring stick needs to be tossed out! We must measure ourselves in light of what God says about us! We are not citizens of a faulty, decaying earth but heirs of a kingdom of power! 1 Corinthians 4:20 says, “For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power”. That means that God is acti

Having a persuaded heart

So often when we face challenges we struggle because our heart is divided. We hope for the best outcome but we fear our expected outcome. Both of these responses center around us rather than God. We need to have a fully persuaded heart in order to see correctly in challenging times. What do I mean by this? When we are fully persuaded of who God is, we function from a place of knowing that He is always for us. His desire is always to bring blessing, even out of the darkest circumstances. He moves not to shame us, belittle or harm us but to restore us to His love and to bring blessing into our lives. Jeremiah 29:11 is on of my favorite verses "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, s

7,000 Promises

Did you know that Scripture has over 7000 Promises of God toward man. That’s 7000 examples of God reaching out to connect personally with us. Over and over we see how Jesus tried to connect personally with people all throughout the New Testament. Think of Zacheus in the tree and Jesus calling him down and wanting to eat at his home. Or the Samaritan woman at the well and how Jesus used personal details to speak freedom and love into her life. This manner shows us at an intimate level that we matter to God, that he sees us. As believers we have all been impacted by this personal love based approach. How do we carry this out to others? Walking in our Royalty is not just about our identity and
