They fail to realize that God reveals His heart for them in Matthew…Read More

Today, I believe and declare that You are surrounding Your children with health, protection, favor and wisdom. We believe it and receive it today. In Jesus name. Amen.Read More
Pass the Fear Test! Take authority over fear, trust in God’s love and promises, keep the devil under your feet, starve fear, and feed your faith!
Even from an early age, life is full of tests—math tests, driving tests, aptitude tests and countless others we all face at one point or another. A test is designed to measure performance, gauge understanding and determine whether a person has mastered a particular skill. When it comes to our spiritual lives, we are not exempt from being tested; in fact, Satan throws out all kinds of “tests” or challenging circumstances, hoping we’ll take the bait and give him access to our lives. His all-time favorite? The Fear Test.

When you face adversity, have you noticed that your typical prayer is, “God, get me out of this”? It might be trouble at work, a financial setback, or a sickness. There’s nothing wrong with that prayer, but before you get out, you have to invite God in. Sometimes the miracle is not in getting out; it’s in what God is going to do in the situation. Why don’t you start praying, “God, come into this hospital room, come into this trouble at work, come into this anxiety”? What is more powerful than God bringing you out is when He comes in and begins to change things.Read More
