The Firm Foundation

Are you familiar with a children’s Bible song based on Matthew 7:4 ? It goes like this, “The wise man built his house upon a rock, and the rains came tumbling down. The house on the rock stood firm.” The second verse of that song talks about the foolish man who built his house upon the sand, and when the rains came, his house “went splat.”

It's Time to Breakout

It's Time to Breakout

It’s Time to Breakout
Have you ever felt like you had “hit the wall?” You know what I mean—your income reaches a certain level, but then it doesn’t seem to go any higher. Maybe you set some physical fitness goals, and you’ve achieved some success, but you are stuck. Perhaps your church or ministry has hit a plateau in one or more areas. I have a message from the Lord for you: This is a breakout year! You will move forward! It’s time for you to break out of anything that has been limiting you!

Mental Health Affects Physical Health

Mental Health Affects Physical Health

As a ministry leader, I’m sure you are aware of the tri-part being of man. We are a spirit, and we possess a soul (mind, will and emotions), and we live in a body. That fact is clearly spelled out in various Scriptures, but most succinctly in 1 Thessalonians 5:23And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Good Fight!

The Good Fight!

As a ministry leader, you need to come to the place where you are satisfied. Some people mistakenly believe that they will be content when their ministry is a certain size or when their bank account holds a large sum of money. However, if you can’t be content today, in whatever situation you’re in, you’ll never be content.  I’ve known people who had millions of dollars and others who didn’t have a dime; both types of individuals always wanted more!

Getting Direction Under Pressure

Getting Direction Under Pressure

Every leader has been there—face to face with a situation or a circumstance that requires us to get direction and do something— but we don’t know what to do! I’m talking about real “brain stumpers”— problems that seem to have no logical, immediate answer. When the situation involves your ministry, then your congregation, partners and employees are all looking to you for clarity and direction. You feel the pressure as the leader. What should you do when you need direction because you don’t know what to do?
