Growing in Grace & Favor: Faith for Creatives

“…but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.” II PETER 3:18 NKJV We are told in the Word to grow in favor/grace and the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. It seems simple enough, and even obvious, really, which only begs the question, why the instruction. The answer? All of us at some point in time has struggled or will struggle with our position in Christ and the truly awesome, and completely free gift of unmerited favor. Knowing that in many things we will fail and fall short even as we walk with Him but yet are never disqualified from His grace is just mindblowing (ROMANS 5:20). The even bigger mind-blow is that when we fail and fall short, no matter how great our intentions to do good, it is His GRACE pouring out to us that brings us into deeper repentance (ROMANS 2:4). When we walk in unperfected love, and we all have, which is a fear of punishment, we don’t …

Come Out of the Poverty Mindset: A Prophetic Word by Bri Lassiter

A Message from Bri Lassiter: I’m excited to share this prophetic word as the Lord enables and prepares those entering a season of prosperity, to receive it. Just like Joseph experienced many different seasons in his lifetime, ranging from spoiled daddy’s boy who lacked nothing, to the pit, poverty, and slavery, to obtaining a favored position in a rich rulers house, to imprisonment again, and finally governing Pharoah’s house and guiding a nation through a famine, we too, experience both lack and prosperity in our lifetimes. The Lord sustained and prepared Joseph for each season, and he wants to do the same for us. “Learn how to trust Me and see My provision in times of lack, and learn how to take, as I bring you to a new season of authority and give you everything you need to do My will. Learn how to let go of fear, fear that I will not provide, fear there will not be enough, fear I will let you down. Trust who I Am, and My thoughts and …

Blessed Under Pressure: Faith for Creatives

“…being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”~PHILIPPIANS 1:6 As I sat, several years ago, and practiced calligraphy with a pen I had never used before, I noticed that when I didn’t apply the right amount of pressure with my hand, the inky lines would break and lose their fluidity. They lacked perfection. I continued to draw more curved lines all in the attempt to make the perfect, curvy, line with thick sections here and thin, fine sections there, repeating the pattern, all without breaks. As I continued to draw the Holy Spirit gave me a revelation. Just like with that pen in my hand, Christ Jesus is working with us in His hands. He is working with us to get us to do greater things that we have never done before. Just like with the pen, He must apply the right amount of pressure at the right time to get our ‘lines’ perfect, fluid, without breaks. The task …
