Hitting A Wall

Hitting A Wall

Share on Facebook Share 23 Share on TwitterTweet Share on LinkedIn Share 0 Send email Mail Several years ago, I decided to hire a voice coach. I only went once, because I was so discouraged after my first lesson. I walked in thinking I was “the man”, but by the time she was finished with me, I was frustrated. I convinced myself it wasn’t worth going because the drive was too long, but I have to admit I was also nervous, perhaps because I deep down, I was convinced I wouldn’t be good enough. In my first session, the song we worked on was Kyrie by Mr. Mister. I could hit all of the notes except for one. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t hit the note. We continued that first session by doing additional exercises where she would ask me to test my range, and would push me beyond what I was able to do. I grew frustrated. What I didn’t realize was that while I was hitting a wall, she was trying to push me beyond it. The children of Egypt experienced the same thing, whether it was facing the Red Sea or coming out of the desert facing the Jordan. In both circumstance, they “hit a wall”. A wall of water that stood between where they were and where they needed to go. A wall that confined them from their destiny. God creates each and every one of us with so much potential, so many different talents and abilities, but many of us have buried this potential beneath a pile of doubt and worldly...
Host the Presence of God

Host the Presence of God

Share on Facebook Share 0 Share on TwitterTweet Share on LinkedIn Share 0 Send email Mail There is a scripture that I see all of the time and yet, it wasn’t until recently that God revealed to me a deeper revelation. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. – Ezekiel 36:27 You see, God has put His Spirit WITHIN us! That’s powerful, that means we are truly hosting the presence of God What would happen to your life and the lives of those around us if we were more aware of the revelation knowledge that we are hosts to the presence of God? It would be like enjoying His voice, His goodness, and His mercy every moment of your life! It didn’t seem like a life like this is possible; well, until I met my new friends, John and Heidi White! You see, John and Heidi are the executive producers of a groundbreaking, audio-visual experience called The Presence. They have made it their life’s work to teach and train people how to host the presence of God. The Presence is a breathtaking presentation full of music, insight, and revelation designed to equip sons and daughters to experience God’s presence all of the time by highlighting men and women — all around the world and from all walks of life — who are living daily in His Presence and experiencing the wonder and friendship of the Holy Spirit. Everyone can have a deeper and more abiding relationship with God. His presence is what helps us...
The End Times — Are They Upon Us?

The End Times — Are They Upon Us?

Share on Facebook Share 1 Share on TwitterTweet Share on LinkedIn Share 0 Send email Mail We are living in what many are calling the last days. It seems like everywhere you look, the world is in chaos. When you turn on the TV, you see images of wars, suffering, and struggle. It’s like we’re standing on the edge of the abyss, and what we can’t yet see leaves us searching for answers. I want to tell you right now that you don’t need to live in fear of what’s to come. The Day of the Lord is at Hand, written by Benjamin Baruch, is a divinely-inspired book that gives instruction on God’s deliverance plan and the part we all have to play in it. It’s more than just revelation on what’s to come — The Day of the Lord is at Hand will also prepare you with insight, understanding, and strategy on how to walk in victory with God. His book is your guidebook to revealing the times we’re living in, what it is we’re looking for, and how God is trying to change the matters of our heart. He is moving and active, and time will reveal what’s He’s doing on a personal and global level. In The Day of the Lord is at Hand, Benjamin Baruch pinpoints the start of the last days, gives his interpretation of sealed prophecies, and he identifies the Antichrist! Even if the idea of the last days seems frightening to you, you can’t ignore or hide from what’s going on all around us. It’s time to get into alignment with God’s end-time strategy,...
The Blood of Jesus Will Free You!

The Blood of Jesus Will Free You!

Share on Facebook Share 3 Share on TwitterTweet Share on LinkedIn Share 0 Send email Mail Do you understand the significance of the blood of Jesus? It gives life. It cleanses you of your sins, heals you, and enables you to overcome the works of the enemy. It sanctifies you and brings you closer to God. Every favor, benefit, and blessing we receive is because of the blood of Christ. Think, for a moment, about your own natural blood. It supplies nutrients and oxygen to every part of your body and cleanses wastes and toxins from your cells. Spiritually speaking, the blood of Jesus does the same thing by supplying peace, understanding, deliverance, and healing. The blood shed by Christ is not just a historical event that happened 2,000 years ago. It’s for today, and for all of us! That’s why Evangelist Tommy Combs has written a revelatory book, called This Blood’s For You: 39 Stripes for Your Salvation, Healing, and More. I’m telling you – I was blown away by all that the blood can do! This book contains 39 chapters for 39 stripes, each detailing what the blood shed by Christ can do in your life. The Bible does not say you are going to be healed. It says you were healed. It’s already done!!! Despite your circumstances, your diagnoses, or anything else, God’s Word says you have already been healed. When you ask, believe, and receive, you will have peace, joy, freedom, and health. Pleading the blood of Jesus is a heaven-given resource to releasing God’s power in your life. Listen, I encourage you to watch...

Are You Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired?

Are You Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired?

Share on Facebook Share 0 Share on TwitterTweet Share on LinkedIn Share 0 Send email Mail There are times in everyone’s life where stress and pressure seem to be overwhelming. When you’re hard pressed on every side, between work, bills, health issues, and relationship problems, it may seem like there’s no way to improve your circumstances. All of this stress leaves us feeling sick and tired! I’ve had the honor to host one of my dearest friends in ministry, Dr. Derek Grier, in the 1onONE studio. Today, I want to share with you one of his teaching sermons that has profoundly impacted my life, and I know it will touch yours, too. This life changing message will reach you when you’re at the end of your rope and you just can’t take it anymore. When you’re at that critical point, Dr. Grier will show you how to LET GO and grab on to God’s lifeline! So many of us feel the pressure to work our circumstances out on our own. The idea of letting go can seem like a terrifying choice. And then, when our ego gets in the way, we often can’t or won’t let go and let God be God. All of this leaves us feeling anxious, fearful, stressed, and can even make us physically sick. But the good news is it’s not our job to figure it out! It’s our job to trust God, and humble ourselves before Him. When we give our cares to Him, we get to watch Him work it out! Therefore, humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may...
