Enough tickling, time to grow

  |  0 Comments

Whenever there is a fresh move of the Holy Spirit bringing spiritual refreshing, renewal, or revival, there are always people who jump into the “river” and get caught up in the laughter, the “feel-good” sensations, the “warm fuzzies,” or other manifestations for their own sake. These folks are more interested in being “tickled” by their Father than in being transformed by the Spirit. Being tickled is fine up to a point, but the time comes when the Lord says, “Enough tickling. It’s time to grow.” Growth always involves transformation, and it always involves pain.

Prophecy your day

  |  0 Comments

Prophesy your day. When you wake in the morning, pray and ask the Lord for information about something that will happen during your day. Write it down as clearly as you understand it. At the end of the day, check and see if the event that you prophesied to yourself happened. Also see how well you understood the specific details of the event (s).

You are the sum total

  |  0 Comments

You are the sum total of your habits. You’ve got good ones and you’ve got bad ones, but the things you habitually do are the things that make you. The key to spiritual growth is developing good habits.
