Encouragement To The Remnant – A Word by Yolanda Ballard

The calling on my life is worship intercession, but there have been times where I felt to just throw in the towel because the warfare upon worship was so intense. I remember one time I actually was leaving a conference because I could not break through even to worship. One man asked me where I was going. I told him what I felt and he said not to look on the warfare, but to look to Jesus who leads us in the battle. He has the breaker anointing and He will make the way. From that day on I’ve kept my eyes on Jesus and was able to have a breakthrough in worship. Times have even gotten more intense than before. Many praise teams have been robbed from congregations. People are having a hard time singing out, because of the spirit of intimidation. There has been much oppression and deadness...

Praying Hyde—The Apostle of Prayer—The Man Who Never Sleeps – A Word by Steve Porter

This is the story of a humble man—the son of a devout Presbyterian pastor from Illinois, by the name of John Nelson Hyde. It all began when John’s older brother, Edmund, heard his father fervently pray that God would send workers into the harvest. To that end, Edmund enrolled in the seminary, planning to be one of those harvesters. But it wasn’t long before he became ill, and his dream was cut short by his death. It was then that his brother, John, then caught the vision and studied to go to the mission field in Punjab, India. During that time, there were nearly a million unbelievers in an area served by only five missionaries. His efforts required incredible patience because it was a painstakingly slow transition. After his first year on the field, he penned the following letter to his seminary. Yesterday, eight low-caste persons were baptized at one...

When Jesus Is Enough – A Word by Dawn Hill

When the thrill of the experience has waxed cold and the fog lifts and the glow of the ambient light has dimmed in the presence of offending fluorescence, there is a questioning of the longevity of this sacred romance called Christianity. As a Christian, I realize that encounter and experience once took precedence in my life. It was the thrill of God seeming to chase me and give me a word, to have the “man or woman of God” call me out and declare greatness and mighty exploits. Hot tears and those euphoric goosebumps were my litmus test that He had touched me through the years. Is this how many of us have operated with God? It was not until this year that I came to grips with the truth. I was a starving sheep, feasting on encounter and messages with fillers and lacking true sustenance while snacking on His...

I Dreamed I was crying. – A Word by Dawn Baker

I Dreamed I was crying. A Word by Dawn Baker "Jesus wept". We've all frivolously quoted that verse. We've known it as 'the shortest verse in the bible' but could Father God truly want us to delve deeply into the heart of it. Jesus wept. He is the very image of The Holy God, embodying everything good and right; yet, He is so full of compassion for 'us' that tears fell from Jesus eyes and He wept, cried for us. Wow! The longer I live, and the more interaction I have with people, the more I'm amazed and ponder hearts. Jeremiah said the heart is "deceitfully wicked". Yet, Jesus died for our hearts; that's how important our heart is to God and how much He wants it! The war has always been over 'our heart'. And a heart transformed by Jesus is undeniably recognizable as His. 'THE HEART' pumps blood...

Are you possessed? Jesus is on His way! – A Word by Edie Bayer

Are you possessed? Jesus is on His way! A Word by Edie Bayer Are you waiting for your miracle to come? During devotionals this morning my husband reminded me of this scripture passage in Luke 8. I believe this is a prophetic word that I think will help you! Jesus had just driven out Legion from a man in the Gerasenes, sending the demons into the pigs. The people then turned on Jesus and drove Him out, as they were “possessed and suffering with dread and terror,” (Luke 8:27 – 37 AMPC). Next thing you know, He was approached by a man named Jairus, a ruler in the synagogue. His daughter was dying, and he asked Jesus to come and heal her, (v. 41-42). However, on the way, his journey was interrupted by the woman with the issue of blood. She reached out to Him in faith, believing if she...
