The Requirement of Obedience: The Key to Stepping into Manifest Promises

"God doesn't need our help, but He does require our obedience." ~CANDICE COATES We often think that when the Lord says something, instructs us in a task, that the work of bringing that which He has spoken to pass rest upon our oh-too-small shoulders.

Celebrating the Rising of the Son: A Word of Hope & Prayer of Power

It had been a long three days, long enough to make them feel like the darkest of years, slowly creeping by, snatching away hope and expectation with greedy fingers and leaving in its place, despair, disappointment, and confusion.
