Stewardship & Increase

"Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? And if you have not been trustworthy with someone else’s property, who will give you property of your own? "No servant can serve two masters.
Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other.
You cannot serve both God and Money." Luke 16:10-17 NIV

As followers of Christ, we are called to have dominion and to practice good stewardship of the resources God has entrusted us with. Whether you have few resources or many, God is not as concerned with the “how much” as He is with the “how.”

For example, the poor widow gave a few mites into an offering in which many Pharisees were giving large amounts of money. The present day mites of what she put into the offering might have be…

Differences- Let’s Talk About It

God first appeared on the scene of human history in the role of a matchmaker.  We’re studying and applying kingdom principles of relationships right now.  I know God has revelation for you!  He is going to pour His wisdom into your heart, family, and all of your relationships so that His plan can come to pass in your life.  We must seek his wisdom!  Let’s talk about relationships.

Marriage is a special institution to God.  God created marriage so that the family could springboard from the fountain of the marriage relationship. Because God created and intended all of these things before we entered the world, we look around and find that life is relational. Life is impacted by those to whom we are connected. The goal in marriage is more than friendship.  The goal of marriage, among other things, is establishing a oneness for the purpose of God. The person you marry should be able to help carry your purpose.  This means they are supportive in every way for your destiny in Christ.  They …

Praying In The Word

There is power packed into God’s Word. God’s Word brings life, light and the Holy Spirit into the situation. God’s word is the sword of the Spirit and it cuts to the heart of things. God views His Word as being holy, to the point where He exalts His Word over His name. We all have mountains to face and battles and struggles in this world. I want to talk to you about how to get through them – praying the Word of God over them. Not that I have already arrived, because I am someone who has mountains as well, and this is how I climb them. Work the Word, because the Word of God works.

Before you pray, set the mood. Think about who God is to you. Give thanks for anything that He has done in your life. Once you get started doing this, the realization of who He is and how much He has done will hit you. If you can remember God’s character, you will remember you can trust Him. He is unchanging. He does not move from His place. He is there for you 24/7/365. He is stable and eternal. He will nev…

Prayer: The Pipeline to God

We are told to pray without ceasing, pray over your children and home, pray in the morning when you wake up and pray at night before you go to bed. If you are a Christian or have been a Christian for any length of time, no doubt you have heard the exhortation to pray. Prayer is one of those topics that we may sometimes lose the meaning of just because we have heard it for so long. Let’s go back to the basics of the meaning of prayer. So now I ask you, “Why pray?”

Why Pray?

Prayer has to do with joy. When you pray, you get into the presence of God, and in His presence is the fullness of joy. This joy from time spent in prayer with God will strengthen you. Maybe that’s why Jesus exhorts us so many times to “watch and pray, because the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Your time spent in prayer will produce joy, and that will give us strength for the trials of life.

“I tell you the truth, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. Until now you have not asked for anything…

The Mystery & The Locked Garden

No man is complete by himself.  Every man needs companionship.  To meet this need, God ordained marriage and provided Adam with a wife.  Marriage is the closest form of companionship possible between two people.  In fact so close, that the two actually become one.


From the beginning, the Bible reveals 7 principles about marriage, all of which still apply today:

God Himself initiated marriage at the beginning of human history.  Adam had no part in planning it.  Without divine revelation, man cannot understand it, much less make it a part of his experience.The decision that man was to marry proceeded from God, not from the man.God knew the kind of helper that the man needed.  The man did notGod prepared the woman for the manGod presented the woman to the man.  The man did not have to go in search for herGod ordained the nature of their life together.  It’s end purpose was unityJesus upheld God’s original plan of marriage as binding on all who would become his disciples.  It is still in f…

First Fruits

I believe that God will bless you in all areas of your life because of your obedience, sacrifice, and faith to him. We serve a great God who loves us and wants to see us blessed as we stand in faith accepting that he is our only source and strength. God alone provides for our needs and helps us overcome our weaknesses. Throughout my ministry, I have shared the principle of First Fruits, in which I have honored God with an offering of the first of my time and resources. This has proven to be a blessing to me personally time and again. I encourage you to simply tune your ear to God’s gentle prompting as to the amount of resources that he has laid upon your heart to give as your First Fruits this year. I wish to be clear, that First Fruits is a divine principle which is universal to all people, but specifically to believers who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. The Bible says that salvation cannot be gained through works, but rather through faith in God. (Ephesians 2:8-9…
