What Desire Rules Your Life

What desires rule your life? When I was a young boy, I gave my life to Jesus and told Him I would serve Him all the days of my life. Almost immediately I felt a desire well up in my heart. It was the desire to lay hands on people and see them healed. Each […]

Putting On Your Armor

Paul of the Bible told us that we should be putting on the full armor of God every day. Let’s look at what he said: Ephesians 6:11 (NKJV) 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Every day I put on not […]

Cut The Ties

If you have someone in your life who is perpetually prideful, always hurt, always judgmental, always bitter or angry, seemingly frustrated and always offended with people… can I ask you a question? Why would you hang with someone like that? You are either walking in obedience to God Do you know the Bible teaches us […]

Who is that speaking

Yesterday, Pastor Mark called me and asked if I would go with him to help an older woman with a need. She was asking us to come and move a piece of furniture from one storage unit to another. Mark and I both knew we had a Kingdom appointment and we were interested to see […]

The reward was prayer and prime rib

Debbie and I had fun last night in Spokane. We were invited to a Pastors appreciation dinner put on by the Gideon’s. When we arrived at the Red Lion Inn we noticed the place was packed with people. The conference had already been going for two days, but last night was set aside for pastors […]

Ungrateful People

When I meditate on the goodness of God, I can’t help but remember the multitudes of stories found in the Bible for us to learn from. I am so glad God has given us His Word in the form of a book. There is a story I want to that can reveal to you the […]

The Love of God

Recently the Holy Spirit began to whisper a single sentence in my ear. He kept saying, “The Love of God”. I wondered why He was saying this so I decided to search the scriptures to find what He wanted me to understand. I’m glad He did. What I am about to share with you will […]

Why Am I Here

The question of the ages… It’s been answered over and over again, but the battle to keep the truth from you has been intense. If you are asking, you clearly don’t know how important you are… For over forty-five years, I’ve heard people ask, “Why am I here?” There is a deep longing to know […]

Do You Dress For Success

A few years ago, my Associate Pastor and I walked into a Wal-Mart store and headed down one of the main aisles towards the back. We were on a mission from God. There was someone there who needed a touch from Him, so we were making ourselves available to whoever needed that touch. Mark and […]

How Can God Forgive Me

I often minister to people who refuse to believe God could ever forgive them. If that’s you, know that you have been lied to. God is so in love with who you are. While He doesn’t love your sin, He loves you without any reservation. In order to be forgiven by God, we have to […]

My Back Hurts

After years of praying for people with different physical problems, I began to see a pattern in how their problem related to their sin. For example, when people have problems with their backs, shoulders, legs and other major body parts, each one tells a story of how they have broken a commandment of God. Even […]

Careful What You Say

Are you ready to have a blessed life? Would you like to feel like royalty wherever you go? In order for this to happen, you are going to have to change one little thing in your life. How you speak. If you do, the rewards will be huge. Let me begin by sharing a practical […]

Sons and Daughters of God

I am writing this post just for you. Yep! You are that important. As a human being, you have been created with a blueprint not seen. God has fashioned you into a person who is so unique that nobody else on the earth would compare to you. In fact, if you looked throughout history, you […]

Great Faith

When I was young, there was a neighbor who I really looked up to. In fact, I loved bragging about him to my friends. This man was larger than life to me. You might find this strange, but what got me interested in him was what was in his garage. The first time he invited […]

Why Am I Sick Again

I was reflecting recently how I used to get sick every year. Sometimes I would be sick two or three times in a single year. Most of the time it was a cold, but there were many years where I had the flu on a regular basis. Not any more… I wonder how much I […]

What does it mean to bind

One of the most important scriptures spoken by Jesus for a disciple would be found in; Matthew 16:19 (NKJV) 19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” Thee […]

When God Meets Sickness

When I think about God I can’t help but realize how little we really know or understand about Him. What I do know though is this; He is so marvelous! I asked the old man if he was ready to be saved I want to share a story with you. It is a story of […]

The Power Of God To Change Us

I took a team of Pastors to Kenya on a missions trip. We were invited to stay with a family of pastors up in the bush area. To say that this trip was incredible would be an understatement. When it comes to spiritual experiences that I have had with God, there has been nothing to […]

My Hip Hurts

I was standing at the altar in church and noticed a woman get out of her seat and come forward for prayer. She limped up to my wife who was just done praying for another person. Debbie greeted Jill (fake name) warmly and asked how she could pray for her. Jill said, “My left hip […]
