The Anointed One is Always Present by Robert Ricciardelli

The anointing is not something that comes and goes. The anointing comes from the Anointed One who never leaves us and is ever present to deliver His love, mercy, and grace in power. People feel the anointing like it just came upon them, when it actually just poured through them. We all have the ability to be a conduit for His ability, His presence, His anointed transactions. That is not exclusive to anyone, but inclusive to all living temples of the Living God. To some of those leaders, I would … [Read more...]

Christmas Season Faith For Miracles by Robert Ricciardelli

Christmas will always have many more advocates than detractors. Yes it is busy, yes there may be times of wrongful focus, and yes there will be those who question the origin of the day. The key for how we will engage with this season and on this day comes down to perspective. Christmas for many is an encounter, a great encounter, and the historical reminder of God's most significant encounter with mankind. God brought Himself to the world to show us His love and to show us the way back to … [Read more...]

Love Remains Dormant Until We Act by Robert Ricciardelli

To want love, or to believe in the power of love is wonderful, but the power of love will remain dormant until we decide to act upon the love of God within us. Actions speak louder than words and people have heard "I love you" many times while remaining starved for real acts of love and affection. The greatest purpose of our existence is to love and to be an ambassador for God's love to the world. God is love, and He created us by His love, in His love, for His love, and designed us to love Him … [Read more...]

Suffering That Brings Forth Life by Robert Ricciardelli

It is difficult if not impossible to grow without suffering. Without the contrast and growth that suffering provides, you cannot experience the joy and peace that you deserve. Embrace it when it comes, cherish it, and go to God with all of it. He will embrace you with love and compassion while giving you the courage to look deeply at your suffering and embrace it in His strength. Through grace, revelation, and understanding you will be able to move toward healing in your heart. You will receive … [Read more...]

Reflections from the Man in the Mirror by Robert Ricciardelli

We are all living in a fast-paced, hard driven, "make it happen" world. I have operated in this world for most of my life outside of a Kingdom worldview, even as a Christ follower. By the grace of God, the Lord took me out of the Matrix several years ago and I was able to see the world’s systems for what they were, the good, the bad, and the ugly within them. Through continued trials and errors, Father firmly establishes my faith and my view in Him alone.  I desire to see what He sees, hear the s … [Read more...]

Supernatural Victory in the Midst of Adversity by Robert Ricciardelli

“We are living in times that can cause both great fear and great opportunity. These are seasons where the faithful and wise people of God can flourish. It is not because all is peaceful or that challenges and hardships are diminishing, but these are the days that great character is forged. As we contend with difficulties, strong hearts and minds are being formed and creative new strategies for life are being birthed. Deep calls to deep and extreme necessities call upon great virtues. When minds b … [Read more...]

Great Challenges Bring Great Opportunities by Robert Ricciardelli

We are living in times that can cause both great fear and great opportunity. These are seasons where the faithful and wise people of God can flourish. It is not because all is peaceful, or that challenges and hardships are diminishing, but these are the days that great character is forged. As we contend with difficulties, strong hearts and minds are being formed and creative new strategies for life are being birthed. Deep calls to deep and extreme necessities call upon great virtues.

The Power of Gratitude by Robert Ricciardelli

Gratitude releases joy and the fullness of life. We realize that what we have is enough and in our thankfulness, even more than enough. Our thankfulness allows us to accept the things we cannot change see beauty in the midst of our life's challenges. Gratitude accelerates the journey toward peace and happiness within. It expands our worldview to see God at work in the good and bad while embracing the majesty and mystery of God. No matter what is going on all around of us, there's always … [Read more...]

One Nation Under God and Above Nationalism by Robert Ricciardelli

We have just come out of a presidential election. Some Christ followers are happy, some are not, some have concern, and some continue to live in fear. I do not have a problem with concern, but I do have a problem with fear. Fear has the ability to imprison the faith and hope within us. Without faith, it is impossible to please God, and it is impossible to live in the overcoming power of the Kingdom of God within us. God is much bigger than who is in charge of our nation or any nation. Whoever is … [Read more...]

Success is Not a Straight Road by Robert Ricciardelli

The road to success is not straight. There is a curb called Failure that you run over from time to time, and a loop called Confusion that you have to navigate through. There are speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, and caution lights called Family that may complicate your journey. You will have flats called jobs that can be blowout to your passion and a fog to your vision. But, if you pull out your spare called Determination and are powered by an engine called Perseverance, you … [Read more...]
