POWER LIFT: The Fool Within

There is a TV commercial by a company named Vonage that states the following: “We all do dumb things.” They then show a man cutting a tree down and it lands on top of his car. Talk about doing something dumb. We all have the potential of taking foolish actions and making foolish decisions (doing dumb things) if we do not seek God for wisdom. What we end up doing is making a fleshly decision. Foolishness is bound in our fleshly nature, but if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation. Any time we make critical...

21 DAYS OF RELEASE, DAY 5 (June 29): Intermission is Over . . . Get Ready for Act Two!

Exodus 3:1-10. Moses had an unusual beginning. He was born during a time when the king of Egypt attempted to murder all the male babies to reduce the Jewish population. This satanic genocide is still at work today as we see so many or our men in gangs, on drugs, alcohol, struggling with illiteracy, and incarceration. Moses’ mother, being full of faith, put him in wicker-type basket sealed with tar and placed him in the river’s bulrushes. She had faith that this proper child would be protected and used by God. Pharaoh’s daughter arrived at the river, heard Moses crying,...

21 DAYS OF RELEASE, DAY 4 (June 28): Transferred Authority for Kingdom Release

When God created man, he placed Adam and Eve as managers (stewards) over his earth. He put them in charge of everything in the physical realm so that his spiritual government could be manifested in the natural realm through human government. As long as they followed his word, the authority of God’s word was released in the earth and his Kingdom initiatives were manifested. God’s original mandate for mankind is found in Genesis 1:26-28, which is still his mandate for us today. “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion...

21 DAYS OF RELEASE, DAY 3 (June 27): Releasing the Past to Grab the Present

Philippians 3:13-14 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Today’s release is kinda different from what we have done the past two days. When we are in Christ, we cannot hold onto things that will hinder the life in Christ. In most cases, it is stuff from the past that we want to hang onto. The choice becomes easy when we...

21 DAYS OF RELEASE, DAY 2 (June 26): Releasing the Hidden Blessings of Being ‘in Christ’

Ephesians 1:3 states, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who HAS blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.” Today we must release the seven blessings of being in Christ in our lives. First thing to consider about the blessings of God: He has ALREADY given us all of His covenant blessings. You are in possession (past tense) of them right now as you read this. God took care of all of this before the foundation of the world. There is no mistake. 1.      HE CHOSE US in him before...

21 DAYS OF RELEASE, DAY 1 (June 25): No Condemnation in Christ

There is NO condemnation in Christ Jesus. Romans 8:1-2 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. Story – Some children were gathering mushrooms and ate some that were poisonous. An antidote was given which, acting as “the law of life,” counterworks the poison, and sets the children “free from the law of death,” which had already commenced to work in their bodies. This is what Jesus has done for us. He counteracts everything...

POWER LIFT: ‘I Dream of Jeannie’

Sometimes, people tend to want to treat God as if He were a genie in a bottle. We want to rub the bottle and the genie will appear. Then after we get what we want, we want the genie back in the bottle until the next time. If you really think about it, the genie, of all people, would be the most powerful, but the most miserable. Why? Because it performs without relationship! The person in charge who rubs the bottle will have the genie serve without love. In the TV series I Dream of Jeannie, Major Nelson wanted...

POWER LIFT: Experience is NOT the best teacher!

It has been said a million times before that “experience is the best teacher”. This statement is only true in part. Some people go through the same experience and never learn a thing. Their experience is just that – a repeat of the same experience. Two people are necessary in the learning experience of life, and they are teacher and student. In reality, the Holy Spirit is the best Teacher in any experience. We can have an experience, but without a teacher, learning is not optimized! There has to be a student to learn from the experience. A student...
