New Year to Worship Part 5

GOD’S WILL, NOT MY WILL If we want to experience the deeper things of God, we have to be willing to purify our hearts.

We purify our hearts through God’s love. 1 Peter…

Matthew 5:8 (AMPC) Blessed (happy, enviably fortunate, and spiritually prosperous—possessing the happiness produced by the experience of God’s favor and especially conditioned by the revelation of His grace, regardless of…

New Year to Worship Part 2

SINGING IN THE SPIRIT Throne room experiences only happen with Holy Spirit help—listen and respond to the inward impulses of the Holy Spirit.

Eternal Life Part 2

UNION WITH GOD 2 Corinthians 3:18 (NKJV) We all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

The Spirit of Fear

THE SPIRIT OF FEAR 2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV) For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. “Fear,” in the Greek, is to become fainthearted; to lose the “moral fortitude” needed to follow the Lord. Ephesians 6:11 (CEV) Put on all the armor that God gives, so you can defend yourself against the devil’s tricks. Satan wants to steal, kill, and destroy—one of the tools he uses is…
