The Sword Of Gideon

7 May

The Sword Of Gideon…

Gideon’s army went to war with ram’s horns and clay pitchers with burning torches inside. As they advanced, they smashed the pitchers revealing the blazing fire.

2 Corinthians 4:7 says, “We have this treasure in earthen vessels…” Earthen vessels is referring to our body, our physical being. It’s like the clay pitcher.

If you are born again, inside of you is the treasure: the presence or Spirit of God – that’s the fire. So what did Gideon’s army have to do to release that power? They had to smash their clay vessels.

So with you too. Do you want to be victorious and see the power of God manifested in your life? Let your flesh (the old self) be broken through. Let the power of sin be crushed.

Let your ego be broken down, so that people won’t see the outer man any more, but the inner man that contains the Spirit of God; the fire, the blazing torch.

For if we smash that earthen vessel, then the fire of the Spirit will reign and the great miracle and your victory will come – just as it did for Gideon’s army.

For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. 2 Corinthians 4:11

Today, let the old self, the old nature, the old ego, be broken, so that the light and power of God can shine through.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,


Amazed In Cyprus

6 May

Amazed In Cyprus…

The Jewish people, exiled from Israel because of judgment, were scattered all over the world. The Greek name for the dispersion of the Jewish people is diaspora, which means to scatter seed.

The Hebrew word for their dispersion is galut, which means the exile. Exile was a curse, yet the book of Acts reveals that it was through the Jewish exile, through the Jewish diaspora, that the Gospel was spread to the world.

God took the curse of the exile and turned it into the blessing of the diaspora. He used the diaspora to sow the seeds of the Gospel, which is what diaspora means.

It is the heart of God to take curses, and turn them around for good. He takes broken things and makes them whole – turning death into life, and sorrow into joy.

Are there things in your life you feel are a curse or you regret they ever happened? When you give them to God there’s no more regret. He will not just nullify that curse, He’ll turn it around for blessing.

You serve a God who has turned the diaspora, exile, and judgments into blessings of life and salvation.

Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them. Psalm 126:5-6

Today, use the power of God to turn every bad thing, every problem, every conflict, every pain, every failure, every set back… into good, blessing, victory, and redemption.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,


The Earthly And The Heavenly

5 May

The Earthly And The Heavenly…

Eretz, the Hebrew word for earth, is singular. But shamayim, the Hebrew word for heaven, is plural.

In Hebrew, when a word that should be singular is rendered plural, it often indicates an intensity; like an exclamation point. It’s something to get excited about.

The word for earth has no exclamation point. Thus when you’re dealing with earthly things, don’t get too excited over them. Don’t treat the things of the world as the end of everything. Don’t store up your treasures here. Don’t get too attached and make idols. Don’t let your mind get all bent out of shape; panic, go crazy, or get depressed over it. It’s just things.

But the things of heaven are different, they have an exclamation point. You should get excited about heaven and the things of the Spirit. Get excited about the things of God: His love, joy, wonders, purity, peace, and His mysteries.

Then you’ll have true peace and joy, and everything will be alright. Because that’s the way it’s meant to be. The earth, eretz, is only singular. But heaven, shamayim, is always more. And that’s something to get excited about.

The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2:17

Today, get excited about the heavenly things of God and keep calm about the things of earth.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,


Sailing Away

4 May

Sailing Away…

When I came to the Lord, I had to decide what to do with my life. I fasted and prayed, and the Lord led me in a particular direction.

It would take years before I would see the real outworking of God’s purposes for my life. He didn’t tell me all the details because I couldn’t accomplish or even fathom them back then. All I had to know was the next step to take.

Psalms 119:105 declares, “Your Word is a lamp to my feet.” It’s a lamp, not a headlight. His Word and Spirit will generally lead you simply by giving you the next step.

You may have an idea, vision, or promise of things yet to come, but it’s more important that you know what God has for you today and that you do it.

Today is the only day you can fulfill His will and the first step will lead to the second, and so on until it all unfolds, and comes to pass.

Trust Him for the future, but obey Him right now. For the best way to know God’s will is to obey it.

In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:6

Today, don’t worry about tomorrow. Just take the step of obedience that you know God wants you to take for this day.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
