God Is Good—No Matter What

I had what you might call a “divine appointment.” One morning, the Holy Spirit interrupted my thinking with the strong sense that I should leave the house and drive over to a local commercial establishment called The Factory, where I would meet somebody. I was reluctant to stir myself; I was feeling kind of down, and it seemed as if it might be a waste of time. But the Holy Spirit was persistent, so I went out the door just the same because I have learned that these things often prove to be from God. The Factory is a [...]

We are living in crazy and uncertain times. Perilous. Unpredictable. Fearful.

Everything that can be shaken is being shaken. The bigger the storm, the bigger the anchor that is needed to keep the ship secure. Hope is the anchor that holds in the midst of any situation, trial or storm—no matter how severe it gets. "For I know the plans that I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope" (Jer. 29:11, NASB). I am personally convinced that all of the hills and valleys I have passed through in the last 14 years of my life have [...]

Prophet: Has Hardship Struck Your House?

By |2020-06-01T12:05:18-05:00June 1st, 2020|Charisma Blog|0 Comments

Has hardship ever struck your house? "The Long and Winding Road" was a popular hit song years ago. I loved the haunting melody, but as a disciple in Jesus, I was sure that my path would be smooth and easy. Was I ever wrong! My life has not circled a cul-de-sac, but it seems to have steered off the primary highway and onto a trail leading to who knows where. It was a road I was unfamiliar with and one that I was not expecting. Twelve or more years were filled with winding roads and an unfair share of [...]

Holy Spirit, You Are Welcome Here!

“And you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you.” (Acts 2:2 NASB) Oh, how I love the Holy Spirit! He makes Jesus real! He makes the Father enjoyable! I roll out the red carpet to this precious Dove of God every day. I say, “Holy Spirit, You are welcome here!” In these days of observing and celebrating Pentecost, we want to welcome the Baptism of the Holy and Fire. Send Your fire, Lord! The Holy Spirit is the One who connects us to heaven. Without Him, not even Jesus could have known what the Father wanted [...]
