Part II of a now three part scripture-packed article reflecting on how to receive what you ask for in prayer.
GOD DOES ANSWER PRAYERS & GRANTS REQUESTS under two (thus far revealed) conditions…In Part I of this reflection, we will focus on the first condition (though some points may coincide with the second) and use our perfect example, Jesus Christ, to assist us in doing so.
In the midst of God’s love, nothing else exists–no sickness, no pain, no anger, resentment, or jealousy. In the midst of God’s love, there is nothing else, but Light. Weightless, fearless, peaceful–You ARE enough. In the midst of God’s love…is God’s love. Selah. Hallelujah and Amen. –Precious Romans 8:35, 37-39 Who shall separate us from […]
We Americans love a great “comeback” story. We are disappointed when the underdog, or Superhero doesn’t end up with the victory. Many times, it seems like the villain is winning, or has won, just to be surprised and ultimately defeated and brought to justice.

We should do what’s right even when the enemy sneaks in lies that tell us that what we are doing doesn’t matter, that our […]
When God has delivered your enemies into your hands. Do not lord it over them. Do not hold them hostage with guilt, or torment them with shame. For what? At this point, the Lord has already given you the victory! Remember, you are not warring against them. You are warring against a spirit that they […]
One of the greatest lies that the enemy continues to plague the minds of believers with is that our prayers for others don’t matter–that they have no real power, or authority. What an annoying and grievous lie! You may say to yourself, “I don’t believe that.” Well, in logic, you may not, but in action […]
God is faithful to expose the enemy’s “playbook” so that you’re better equipped for the win. When you recognize and are knowledgeable of the strategies and tactics of the enemy against your health, finances, your family, your workplace, your livelihood, your relationships, etc. you can wage war in the Spirit with intentionality and, ultimately, Victory.
