Are You Listening or Talking to Yourself? – JIM MARTIN – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); This afternoon, I read a portion of Jon Gordon’s book, The Power of Positive Leadership.  (A friend had recommended this and I was eager to read something that would be motivating.)  I love this particular section (p. 51): Dr. James Gills accomplished the remarkable feat of completing a double triathlon (two triathlons back to back with only a 24-hour break.)  Even more remarkable is that Gills completed a double triathlon six times, and the…

Do not forget or fade – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); As we reflect on the topic of raising the next generation, it is worth to consider this verse in Deut 4.9: Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them. What does passing the faith on to future generations encompass? God…

3 Ways To Have Unshakeable Faith In God (Even In The Hurricane) – Christian Article

I know men and women of such godly character that they seem to have unshakeable faith in God. No matter what happiness or heartache comes their way, their faith in God is immovable. Unfortunately, I am not one of those people. My faith often wavers, especially when I find myself engulfed by a hurricane of life’s troubles. Instead of trusting in God’s gloriously good character and unshakeable promises, I doubt and worry and fret and calculate. Instead of relying upon…

Judge All Revelations With God’s Word – Christian Article

Sometimes, people receive what they claim to be visions or revelations from the Lord without scrutinising such with God’s Word.

He had been a Christian for many years, but he became sick. While on his sick bed, he had a vision where someone, wearing sandals and…

Understanding The Benefits Of The Anointing – Christian Article

Anointing is our guarantee for unending breakthroughs. However, it does not function in isolation. To operate effectively under the anointing, the anointed needs to be spiritually sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit. That is what I call the law of divine signals. The law of divine signals is primarily the art of being spiritually sensitive. It is being led and directed by the Holy Spirit as to what next step to take. As it is written: For as…

He won’t walk or talk or acknowledge you.” The doctor left and I sat without expression. When the words finally sank in, I cried without comfort. Prayed and asked why.

How to Conquer the Fear of Man – Christian Article

From as far back as I can remember, I have struggled with the fear of man. I had a great Dad, but when it came to baseball, I just could never be as good as he had been. He’d been a catcher and had even tried out for a major league team. So I became the catcher on our little league team (plus no one else wanted to do it). But I was a lousy catcher. I didn’t have a…

All Things Are Possible – Sam Adeyemi ecclezzia.com – Christian Article

In the scriptural text, the Lord asked Ezekiel, “son of man can these bones live?” Ezekiel was perplexed because the bones were very dry and scattered all over the valley, but he responded, “Lord only you know.” There was just one key to make the dry bones live; prophecy. God told Ezekiel to prophesy to the bones. The real influencer and game changer here was the word of God. In the realm of human living certain things are impossible, but…

God is in the room – Lucy Mills – Christian Article

//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push(); Last month I shared the following when I was leading the prayers at a church service; I thought it might be good to post it here as well. It will probably feed into some long term writing, but here’s a taster. In September I started thinking of the Holy Spirit as a golden current, not literally, but as a kind of visual aid for prayer and reflection. The kind of current you find in…
