I just spent the day with some dear friends, some former terrorists, who are now avid followers of Jesus. They shared of amazing miracles in the Islamic world. People are having dreams, visions and opened "spiritual" eyes to recognize Jesus as their Savior.
We also talked very clearly about three important realities re: Islam. The God of Islam is the Devil. Mohammad was evil and is dead. The Quran is a lie.
Then tonight we learned of the tragedy in Ft. Hood. When will people stop putting up with evil in the name of tolerance!
Jesus, the Son of God, is our Savior, and filled with light and love. There is a difference between our Lord and the god of Islam. Psalm 96:5

No it's not Elvis. Or even President Obama. There is only one undisputed King. He wasn't born yesterday and He has never run for office. His power extends to every village, tribe, city and country. His presence is in every classroom, office, ballpark and movie theatre. His words shape the power of books, letters, emails, sms and txts, tweets and even conversations. His laws have never been over-turned and His promises are always true.He has never been overthrown, defeated or His authority ever in question. He is the undisputed Sovereign, the Ever-lasting King. He will reward His followers and bring justice to those who stand against Him. His name is Jesus.

I have read lot's of books, articles and heard numerous speeches on what it means to be a great leader. But it seems to me that what we all really need is a stronger dose of what it takes to be a good follower. I am just not sure there are enough real followers in the world. Perhaps that is because we are all looking for someone worth following??? I personally have had my fill of disappointing leaders -- now I just want to be a good follower of the only one worth following - JESUS

I have been reading through the book of Joshua the past several weeks but was drawn back to the first several verses in light of this past weeks Michael Jackson memorial service. The city of Los Angeles spend more than USD$1 million on the event and the majority of the conversation was about his detailing his accomplishments. (I wasn't there and I didn't watch it!) When God emceed Moses' Memorial he said to Joshua, "Moses, My servant is dead." 5 powerful words that outweighed every accomplishment Moses had achieved. He didn't mention his meteoric rise in Pharoah's house, his bi-lingual abilities, his multiple vocations, the miracles, the plagues, the Red Sea parting. He described Moses' entire life in relationship to himself. God was interested in Moses' character and his willingness to be a servant. What would God say at your Memorial Service?

Years ago when the nation of Iran faced a desperate situation and needed supernatural wisdom they turned to a man named Daniel. He knew God, lived with integrity and never bowed down. Let's pray for the nation of Iran and ask God to raise up a generation of Daniels in every city who will always stand up in a bow down world

I rarely ever tell my story, just because I have made a strong commitment to not draw attention to myself. BUT, this weekend at church I have decided to do it and trust that God will be shown faithful. Here is a "peak" I shared with our church family:
Born sickly, miraculously healed, spirit-filled, mocked in High School, radically changed, shunned by the 'cool' crowd, learned to listen to God, prayed for the sick, seen demons cast out, humiliated by peers/employers, rescued from kidnapping, poisoned, healed, ridiculed, written books, trained thousands of Christian leaders overseas, been misunderstood, lost friendships, helped others stay strong under pressure, growing in faith and still going strong.
It's my story but it's about: God's faithfulness, His favor and my passionate commitment to learn to make the right choices. What He has done for me, He will do for you -- and more! He has exceeded my expectations every time and I can't wait to share with you at 9 and 11am this Sunday the simple truth that "God is...Waiting"
