Something Big is Coming by Tammy Lang Jensen
I think it would be fair to say, we are all feeling a shifting in the spirit realm. Like something big is coming, and we are all at the edge of the woods leaning in and straining to hear. I guess the question becomes, what will it be? Here in Texas in the summer time we have little storms I call thunder boomers. 

They happen mid afternoon when the air gets so hot and humid, that it rains like crazy for about 30 minutes, and then it is gone as quickly as it happened. However, the same storm in the winter months might last for hours. I will answer them before they call to me. While they are still talking about their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers! (Isaiah 65:24). How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow?

Your life is like the morning fog— it’s here a little while then it’s gone (James 4:14). We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps (Proverbs 16:9). The Lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way? (Proverbs 20:24). I hear the Lord saying, trust him in the mystery of it all, relax into the unknown. Life would offer very little surprise or challenge if we knew the answer to it all. It is in the darkness of the unknown that our FAITH is built. When God leads you to the edge of the cliff, trust him to make you as surefooted as a deer. Be strong and courageous, and do the work.

Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all of the work for the service of the temple of the Lord is finished (1 Chronicles 28:20). God will support those who work for him, he is not a hard task master. So when the wolf is at your door, run to him for safety. The name of the Lord is a strong fortress, the godly run to him for safety (Proverbs 18:10).

The Lord is my rock, my fortress, my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold (Psalm 18:12). Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you know not (Jeremiah 33:3). I am the God of the universe, all mysteries and secrets are in my hands. Whether I reveal a little or a lot, is up to me. Your life and times are in my hands. My future is in your hands. Rescue me from those who hunt me down relentlessly (Psalm 31:15). All power, and honor, and glory, nothing is too hard for God....

Faith Leaps On The Word by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1).

Abraham was seventy-five years old when God said to him, “Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee” (Genesis 12:1). In obedience to God, he embarked on a journey, which at the time seemed to be to nowhere, exemplifying for us what the life of faith is. Hebrews 11:8 tells us, “By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.”

Faith requires that you proceed solely on the basis of God’s Word. When He tells you to do something, you go ahead and do it without asking Him how. This was how Abraham qualified to become the heir of the world and merited the title: “the father of faith.” God willed the whole world to him, because he had the right faith-mentality. He must have considered that the whole world belonged to God anyways so, it didn’t matter where God said to go; He (God) would be there to bless him.

Faith leaps on the Word. The story of the crippled man at Lystra, recorded in Acts 14:8-10, is another vivid example: “And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother’s womb, who never had walked. The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed, Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked.”

Just imagine this man’s faith-response; though crippled from birth, he jumped and walked the moment Paul said, “Stand upright on thy feet!” He didn’t ask, “How do you expect me to do that with my crippled limbs?” No! He simply, and promptly acted on the Word.

You should respond the same way always whenever you receive God’s Word. As a seed of Abraham, faith is your lifestyle. Consciously and consistently do what the Word says, irrespective of contrary circumstances, and you’ll forever be victorious.

PRAYER Thank you, Father, for your Word and its ability to do what it talks about in my life! My faith is increased and strengthened as I meditate on your Word. Your wisdom is stirred in me to act on your Word and experience ever-increasing grace, from glory to glory, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Open Heaven: His Thoughts Towards you. by Pastor E. A. Adeboye
Memorise: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. Isaiah 55:8

Read: Isaiah 55:8-13 (KJV)
55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

55:10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.


55:12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

55:13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

Message :
The Almighty God has special and specific promises for His children. These promises are great and their operation is not dependent on the condition of the economy of the nations where His children are located. When the Lord says, “It is well with you”, He is not saying this because of the things around you. He is saying so because of the things He is capable of doing.  You can therefore rest assured, because there is no impossibility with Him. His thoughts and promises towards you are great and perfect, but there are keys required to unlock them. One of such keys is found in Psalm 37:37:

“Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.”

Righteousness is the key that ensures the enjoyment of God’s blessings in this world. The economy may be hard against other people of the land, but in the midst of the instability, God is saying it shall be well with the righteous. Isaiah 3:10 says,

“Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.”

The Almighty God knows how to make you experience peace in the midst of crisis. He knows how to lift you up when others are being cast down. He knows how to settle you while others are lamenting. This is because His thoughts towards you are not a function of the economic indices of your country. In hard times, there are lots of compromises made in business and also in practical Christian living, but the eyes of the Lord are fixed on us all the time, and He is waiting to reward us according to our works. We must ensure that our stand for God does not change even in hard economic times. We must remain righteous in season and out of season. Others may compromise righteousness for the sake of gain, but you must remember the promises of God concerning your life. If Joseph had compromised his stand when the wife of his boss seductively approached him, he would not have emerged a deliverer in Egypt. There are those who put their trust in men and connections, but those who understand the greatness of God will follow God’s rules for their lives, because they know they cannot get anything better than what God has in store for them. No matter what and who they have access to, the righteous do not trust in themselves or man. Their trust is in the Name of the Lord. Everything that the branch needs is supplied by the Vine. The Vine has the roots that bring all the water and nourishment that the branch needs. This is why Philippians 4:19 says,

“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

Therefore, trust in God’s promise and hold on to Him tenaciously. He will not fail.

Key Point
Those who follow God are always partakers of good things.

Matthew 5:13—You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing
–Edmund Burke
In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus not only told His followers that they were the light of the world; He also said they were the salt of the earth.  Salt is meant to season and to preserve.  It is important for us to be the “salt” that seasons our communities with moral virtue as prescribed in the Word of God.  It is equally important to take seriously the preservation function of “salt” by translating the truth into votes.

First we must understand that, as Bible believing Christians, our views and our political priorities will always be unpopular.  Most people are not going to agree with us on everything.  The Lord reminds us that the way to heaven is through a “narrow gate: and “there are few who find it.”  Believers are often going to be outnumbered, and if we are to prevail we must stick together and each do our part to stand for righteousness.  Because we are the minority, it is doubly important that each Christian register to vote and get involved in the political process.  Above all, it is critical that we not just register to vote but that we go to the polls and cast our vote.  The only tangible way Jesus Christ is going to have a “voice” in each election for each follower to express that voice by means of prayerfully casting a ballot on the issues.

Foundations of Faith


Where Is Heaven? By Billy Graham
I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me.—Luke 22:29

Many people have asked, “Where is heaven?” We are not told in the Scripture where heaven is. Some students have tried to take some Scriptures and put them together and say that heaven is in the north. They quote Psalm 48:2, “The joy of the whole earth is . . . on the sides of the north . . . ” The magnetic needle points north. Perhaps the Celestial City is in the north. We do not know. But no matter where heaven is, it will be where Christ is.

Many people ask, “Do you believe that heaven is a literal place?” Yes! Jesus said, “I go to prepare a place for you.” The Bible teaches that Enoch and Elijah ascended in a literal body to a literal place that is just as real as Los Angeles, London, or Algiers! The Bible also teaches that heaven will be a place of beauty. It is described in the Bible as “a building of God”-“a city”-“a better country”-“an inheritance”-“a glory.”

The Bible also indicates that heaven will be a place of great understanding and knowledge of things that we never learned down here.

Prayer for the day
Living Lord Jesus, the knowledge that You have prepared a place for me in heaven brings comfort and delight to my soul!


Choose Life by Kenneth Copeland
For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.Romans 8:6

If you were given the choice between life and death, which would you choose? The answer seems obvious. But, in reality, it's not.

You see, choosing death doesn't necessarily mean jumping from the nearest cliff. It's much more subtle than that.

The Bible says death is being carnally minded, being entangled in this present worldly realm. The Bible also tells us what life is. "My son, attend to my words," says Proverbs 4:20-22, "...for they are life!"

To be worldly minded is death. To be Word-minded is life.

In Luke 10, there's a story that illustrates this principle extremely well. It's the story of Mary and Martha. You probably remember it. Mary was sitting at Jesus' feet listening to Him teach while Martha was bustling around in the kitchen cooking dinner for everyone.

Finally Martha couldn't stand it anymore. She came to Jesus and said, "Lord, don't You care that my sister has left me to do all the work myself? Tell her to help me!" Jesus answered, "Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: but one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her" (Luke 10:41-42).

Mary had set everything else aside, so she could hear the Word. But Martha had let the seemingly important business of living take priority over the Word. She'd chosen death, not life.

You see how easy it is to slip into that?

"But Brother Copeland," you say, "if I didn't spend all my time taking care of the business of living, my life would fall apart!"

Oh, really? Martha probably thought that too. She probably thought if she didn't cook dinner for all those folks, they'd go hungry. But they wouldn't have. Jesus had miraculously fed multitudes before and He could have done it again in Martha's home. She could have plopped herself down at Jesus' feet, and they could have had a banquet at God's expense!

Don't make the mistake that Martha did. Don't get so entangled in the business of living that you choose death by default. Decide to put the Word first place. Choose Life!
