    Begin to lift your prayer life up and enlarge your prayers. When Jesus was speaking with the woman at the well, He said, “If you knew who you were talking to, you would ask more than you are asking.” Do you know who you are talking to?
    Note: When you pray, do you now who you're talking to?

    The Hebrew word for thought encompasses the idea of intentions, purposes, designs and dreams. It refers to the thoughts and purposes that fill a person’s mind. When you think about the thoughts of God, put these five words to work:     • God’s intentions for your life.     • God’s purposes for your life.     • God’s designs for your life.     • God’s thoughts for your life.     • God’s dreams for your life.
    Note: Are you thinking God's thoughts?

    Imagining is not just seeing the invisible, but living the invisible through faith. It is living in a realm where reality seems to say one thing and your dream another. Faith is the realm that does not agree with your senses. It is the realm that seems to contradict reality.
    Note: Lord, open my eyes!
  • Les shared from Seven Declarations for an Unshakable Life by Frank Damazio
    These are powerful words, but in times of life-shaking, they can become more than just words. They become the very breath that sustains you. They are the bedrock under your feet that surges life into you when your world begins to shake. You no longer read them as simply beautiful-sounding verses from the Bible. They become a powerful force in your heart that bursts from your mouth into a faith declaration that you throw into the face of the enemy: “I am absolutely convinced, beyond the shadow of a doubt. I base my very existence on this confident determination that there is absolutely nothing...
    Note: Good word!
  • Les shared from Seven Declarations for an Unshakable Life by Frank Damazio
    It doesn’t matter what the infirmities, reproaches, needs, persecutions and distresses are. You come to a throne of grace. You come to a Sovereign Lord who reigns in power and grace. It is there you find all the help we need. It is there you find the sufficiency to stand firm in any life-shaking.
  • Les shared from Not a Fan: Becoming a Completely Committed Follower of Jesus by Kyle Idleman
    When you call Jesus “Lord,” you aren’t saying, “He’s the teacher—and I’m the student.” You are saying, “He’s the master and I am the slave.” That’s what it means to deny yourself.

    So they signed up to follow Jesus, but if denying themselves was part of the explanation, it was definitely the fine print. That’s especially true of American Christians. In part, this is due to the collision of Christianity with American capitalism. It has created a culture of consumers in our churches. Instead of approaching their faith with a spirit of denial that says, “What can I do for Jesus?” they have a consumer mentality that says, “What can Jesus do for me?”

    What the rich young ruler is really committed to is revealed when he refuses to deny himself. He wanted to say yes to following Jesus without saying no to himself.

    What is it that really gets you excited? Recently I was watching a college football game on TV when my twelve-year-old daughter came in and said, “I’ve never seen you so excited.” She has seen me baptize new believers. She saw my reaction to the birth of her baby brother. She has seen me take her out for many daddy/daughter dates. But she has never seen me more excited than watching a college football game. Ouch.
    Note: About what do you get most excited in life?
  • Les shared from How We Decide by Jonah Lehrer
    Consider this experiment: Drazen Prelec and Duncan Simester, two business professors at MIT, organized a real-life, sealed-bid auction for tickets to a Boston Celtics game. Half the participants in the auction were informed that they had to pay with cash; the other half were told they had to pay with credit cards. Prelec and Simester then averaged the bids for the two different groups. Lo and behold, the average credit card bid was twice as high as the average cash bid. When people used their Visas and MasterCards, their bids were much more reckless. They no longer felt the need to contain their...
