“Speak faith over your business and ministry in this season. The devil prowls around like a roaring lion seeking who he may devour. Use my word to rebuke him. Behold, I am doing a new thing. The old relationships are gone. The past is gone. This season will look like nothing you’ve ever seen before. […]

Today, the Lord says, “Your time to rejoice has come.” The Night Is Over Today the Lord reminded me of the dark places and dark seasons that he brought me through over these past 43 years. I don’t know about you, but it has sometimes felt like I have lived life in various “pits,” and […]

This morning, I sat down to start in on my morning ritual with my cup of coffee, my bible, and my book of prayers. My mind has been distracted by the national news and world news in light of bible prophecy. I sat down and hugged my bible and began to cry for the lost […]
