Maintaining Focus for Victory We must maintain our focus if we ever want to be victorious. This is the lesson Elisha giving to King Joash.

Open Our Eyes If we could only see what God is doing it would make a difference in how we view life, not to mention see how big God is and how little our problems actually are? Elisha’s ability to see what God was doing landed him smack dab in the sights of Israel’s enemy, […]

Transformational Change Needed Over this past generation our country has gone through wholesale changes in what we stand for and believe in. There are things happening today that weren’t even contemplated back then.

Blood Speaks While blood has no vocal cords, nor lungs to bring forth sound, it speaks louder than any human or angelic being. And Jesus’ blood speaks volumes if we would just listen. Taking the chorus of “Nothing But The Blood,” Matt Redman adds a new refrain: “Your blood speaks a better word Than all […]
