The Power of Treating Others Well by Robert Ricciardelli

The way you treat others has a direct impact on the effectiveness of your prayers, and the prayers of those who live righteously are powerful. When we aren't treating others with love, honor, and kindness, then we aren't allowing His righteousness to operate through us. We will realize a major power shortage in prayer and in life when we do not treat others well. We should seek wisdom and understanding in considering the needs of others. Forgive others, treat them kindly, and the power of God … [Read more...]

The Unshakeable Kingdom by Francis Frangipane

As the year 2011 comes to a close, it is hard to be unaffected by the massive earthquakes that occurred these past years. Remember, it was just 2004 when the great South Asian Tsunami roared along the Indian ocean, suddenly rising and striking the coastlines of nine nations. Over 250,000 people died and millions more were left grieving and homeless. Scientists tell us that this great disaster not only changed the landscape of Asia, it actually caused the planet to wobble on its axis.But the … [Read more...]

Hope for Despairing Christians by Tony Campolo

Hope for Despairing Christians In A World That is Getting Worse and Worse by Tony CampoloBy Tony CampoloFor many Evangelical Christians, the normative attitude is to view world history with despair. Most have been led to believe that forces of darkness are increasingly raising havoc in the world as we move toward the end of history. Many have grown up believing that evil will become more and more pronounced in the last days, and the demonic forces of darkness more and more evident in … [Read more...]

Loving Your Enemies by Robert Ricciardelli

Anybody can love a friend, but the proving of agape love comes when we love our enemies. Through the power of God's love we are able bless those who curse us and we can hold back from retaliating to those who have hurt us. We can be at peace knowing that it is God's job to take on injustices rather than seeking our own vengeance. We may hate the conduct of others while at the same time hoping and praying for redemption in their lives. We can overcome evil with good through the power of loving … [Read more...]

Rest in God Beyond the Outcomes of Life by Robert Ricciardelli

The presence and peace of God cannot be realized when stuck in the "doing" of life rather than the "being" in God. There is a rest that only can come from being one with God. It’s about not being attached to the outcomes in life, but about being present and happy whether you achieve your goals or not. We must let go of the person the world thinks we should be and enjoy every part of the journey in the integrity of who God designed us to become. Do not abandon your goals, but embrace the peace a … [Read more...]

Supernatural Trickle in the River of Life by Robert Ricciardelli

We are each a tributary in the "River of Life." There’s Living Water flowing from each one of us. Even when we think that we’re only a trickle, trickles join with others forming a stream. Streams flow together to become a river and rivers flow to nourish the land and it's people, first becoming ankle deep, then knee deep, then deep enough to swim in. We must never underestimate the power of the moving water of Spirit and Life. Trees of life grow on both sides of the River with fruit from heaven t … [Read more...]

God Will Show You “How” to Move Past your “Why” by Robert Ricciardelli

Why did I not get the job? Why don't I have joy and peace in my life? Why did this happen to me? Why, why, why? The "Why" questions in life are not nearly as productive as the "How" questions. How am I going to overcome this? How can I get that job? How can I find real joy and peace? You may never find the answers for "Why," but God can give you the insight and direction on "How." Seek God with all of your heart, soul, and mind, and He will show you how to navigate with Him through every area of … [Read more...]

Yielded to Christ: In Every Trial There is a Blessing by Victoria Boyson

There is an unclean spirit whose sole purpose is to convince us that he is God. He comes sounding very much like God and plays on our weaknesses and on our sinful thoughts and desires. It is sent to deceive those who have a strong gift of intercession, and it seeks to gain access to our hearts and minds to use our prayers to bring harm to the Body of Christ. One of its goals is to cause our mouths to come into agreement with the realms of darkness.This demon may present himself as a gift of … [Read more...]
