25 Oct God is God! (And You’re Not!!!)

Here's a super quick thought for launching a supernatural children's ministry. Get a grip on the fact that God actually knows what He is doing. God is unwaveringly convinced that you are THE person who has been strategically placed in THE location to minister to THE boys and girls who will launch a mighty revival. In God's understanding, NONE of this is by accident. Evidently, we aren't too convinced of this fact. Too many of us have a mindset that we are just a temporary fixture in our ministry. We are there until somebody better comes along. With our inadequacies and imperfections, surely we are a roadblock to this move of the Spirit. Excuses aren't new to God. The Bible is filled with individuals who wanted their list of "facts" to supersede God's assignment. Consider Moses. Moses had his "Top 10 I Can't List". (Exodus 4). God and Moses had two gigantic differing sets of opinions about Moses' capabilities. Then, consider Jeremiah. (Jeremiah 1). Jeremiah knew who he was and became quite vocal in expressing his "facts" to God. In Jeremiah's eyes, he was a person with great limitations. But in reading the first few verses of this chapter, God had a different opinion altogether about Jeremiah. Consider what I wrote in the first paragraph as being God speaking to you. God actually knows what He is doing. God is unwaveringly convinced that you are THE person who has been strategically placed in THE location to minister to THE boys and girls who will launch a mighty revival. In God's understanding, NONE of this is by accident. So, if this is true (and it is) then start talking and acting like it is true. You'll be amazed at the difference in you and your ministry!...

18 Oct Eliminating Satan’s #1 Lie About You & Your Ministry

Help me, Jesus. As usual, there is so much that I want to share with you about the precious Holy Spirit. Space restraints keep me from sharing all that I have bubbling inside of me.Since our Ignite the Supernatural Conference in Texas, I have received so, so many emails and letters telling of the fruit of the conference. I wish that I could share bits and pieces of all of the testimonies with you. Again, space restraints ...

11 Oct I Will Not Be Denied!

We all know that God longs to move mightily among our children. It is an indisputable fact that God wants to pour out His Spirit upon each and every child in our ministry. Because of scriptures like Isaiah 44:3, Joel 2:28, Acts 2:17, 39, this isn't even open for discussion! If this is true (and we know that it is), then why aren't we seeing this in our services? Why isn't there a widespread outpouring of God's Spirit in our services? I answered this question at our Ignite the Supernatural Conference last week when I spoke in a general session on the subject "I Will Not Be Denied". In Mark 10 we read a very familiar story, the account of Jesus healing blind Bartimaeus. Before telling of Bartimaeus in that service, I shared an insight of what happened before the two connected. In verse 46, Mark records that the great Miracle Maker went to Jericho. Common sense would tell us that Jericho was just like any other city. It was FULL of needs. Like every other city, it had the lame, blind, possessed, etc. But notice this. After stating that Jesus went to Jericho, Mark immediate says "and as He went out of Jericho ...
