Being Open to God’s Supernatural Power

 Oftentimes we miss it. God supernaturally does something very special and miraculous and it goes by us like a speeding train as we stand on the station platform. We’re ready (on the platform) but we miss it as it goes by us because it’s different from what we thought it might be. One example from […] Continue reading…

Depending on the Spirit in Ministry

 Luke 4:17–19 gives us a condensed description of the Father’s business. It’s an example we must follow as we live in the flow of the Holy Spirit and allow Him to work, not just in us, but through us as well. Luke writes, “And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when […] Continue reading…

The Seal of Promise

 We’ve been studying the Holy Spirit in a series called Flow. We’ve looked at several aspects of the Holy Spirit and how He impacts our lives as believers. One essential Truth is our understanding of the sealing of the Holy Spirit. It’s true, when we accept Christ and abide in Him, we enjoy eternal life […] Continue reading…

Revealing the Deep Things of God

God is revealing things to us through His Spirit, and the Spirit searches all things—even the tragedies and mysteries that are hard to comprehend. He’s there to reveal these deeper things to us (1 Corinthians 2:9, 10).

Jesus Heals Our Hearts

 In my last post I wrote about how Jesus heals us through forgiveness. We looked at the paralytic and the apostle Matthew and how they were spiritually healed. Jesus told the paralytic to “arise, take up your bed, and go to your house (Mark 2:9).” He was not only spiritually healed; he was physically healed […] Continue reading…

Jesus the Healer

 Jesus encounter with the paralytic (Mark 2:1–12) is a tremendously interesting moment in His ministry.  It’s so important that all three Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke) record it. What’s also interesting is what happens immediately following this event. Both Matthew and Luke indicate that on the same day, “As Jesus passed on from there, […] Continue reading…

Liberation: Set Free from Sin’s Power and Penalty

 In my last post, I wrote about the Holy Spirit, The Helper, and His power to convict us of sin, righteousness and judgment. His conviction serves the purpose of bringing us to Jesus so we can experience the abundant life instead of a life of sin and death. As we turn our lives to Jesus, […] Continue reading…

Don’t Wait for a Convenient Time

 Jesus, quoted in the apostle John’s gospel, gives us a very clear example of one of the roles of the Holy Spirit in our lives. He says, “And when He [The Holy Spirit] has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment.” He will convict the world of sin. […] Continue reading…

The Helper Prays When Words Escape Us

 When our words and prayers escape us in times of compassion, frustration, anger, burdens, bondage, captivity, oppression, harassment, mourning, desperation, brokenness, anxiety and waiting, The Helper is there to pray for us and through us according to the will of God. He’s there and we need to let Him come alongside and be the Helper. […] Continue reading…

The Helper and Prayer

 Paul gives us some great advice about prayer in Romans 8, 26,27. He says,” Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows […] Continue reading…
