Don’t Look Back
by Ministry Support on January 19th, 2022
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.” - Isaiah 43:18  Over the last few days, we have talked about the importance of letting go in order to experience God’s very best. The key to excelling in life is recognizing our shortcomings and working to improve them so that we don’t look back or go back to those former things that were previously a hindrance to us. This is the dilemma that c...  Read More

by Ministry Support on June 25th, 2021
“That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers” - Psalms 1:3  The principal purpose for a tree is that it may bring forth fruit.

The Fight Left In You
by Ministry Support on May 30th, 2021
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:3-5) After David suffers an immense amount of loss and oppo...  Read More

Where Is Your Focus?
by Ministry Support on May 29th, 2021
David was in great danger; for the people spoke of stoning him, because all the people were bitter in spirit for their sons and daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God. (1 Samuel 30:6) One thing I love about David is that he understands the power of focus in the face of the unimaginable. David is going through what has to be one of the most difficult seasons of his life (1 Sa...  Read More

Shall I overtake them?” He answered him,...  Read More
