In discussing God’s anatomy through his eyes, hands, breath and heart… we realize that we are talking, not about a physical body like ours, but a spiritual body like God’s. There’s a big word called “anthropomorphism” and means ‘the process of assigning human characteristics to God to better understand his character and actions.’ Today […]

Bragging On My Father
Allow me to brag on my Heavenly Father for a few hundred words, will you? Our Creator has placed at least 125 billion galaxies in his universe. If they are like our galaxy the Milky Way, they could each contain 300 billion stars. And every new telescope reveals that we haven’t yet found the […]
The God I Need
A devotion written 18 years ago, reprinted 11 years ago… and really, really needed again today! “…Abraham believed in the God who brings the dead back to life and who brings into existence what didn’t exist before.” Romans 4:17 I need a God who takes death as a trade-in on life. There is […]
A Winepress Meeting
So, where are we right now? Where are those of us who are in God’s family, the Blood washed, redeemed, filled with his Spirit… where exactly are we right now? After a year and a half of mixed messages, lies and half-truths from just about everyone who leads us – where are we? We […]
Be impressed! Be very impressed. Let’s take a journey across some of God’s neighborhood.

That means that in one hour you could […]

If God is able to “[carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our […]
Fools Don’t Win!
“And so I insist—and God backs me up on this—that there be no going along with the crowd, the empty-headed, mindless crowd. They’ve refused for so long to deal with God that they’ve lost touch not only with God but with reality itself. They can’t think straight anymore. But that’s no life for you. […]
A Preposterous God
What if God says something preposterous to you? What if He expected something of you that was totally absurd and almost laughable? What if his instructions were totally unreasonable and outrageous? Guess what! When God talks and we listen, we can almost be assured that what He says will be preposterous. And it has […]
This God Lives Here!
The wily old monarch of the Old Testament – Nebechudnezzar – had a dream one night that scared him so badly that although he couldn’t remember the dream, the horror of it wouldn’t let go of him. He had to know what he had dreamt and what it meant to his kingdom. Summoning his […]
