Find a Truth and be True to it.
When God says something about Himself, you can pick up on that promise and take it to heart. Since He is always constant, it is a key that opens the door each day to the presence of God; your own North Star that never changes.

Always Start With The Future
Life in the Spirit is about who we are becoming in Jesus. It’s easy for us to become discouraged about who we are in the moment, but God always speaks from our future into our present.

Thriving in Toxic Environments
What do you do when you’re being judged? It’s a good time to remember that it’s never about other people, it’s about the Lord and what He’s saying to you. What’s His perspective?

Pressing the Pause Button
What is possible in a life of constant peace? If you had peace right now, what would you be seeing? What would you be saying? How would you be feeling? The truth is, Jesus is never negative; He is always positive and He is always in us. Knowing this truth means we never have to react negatively to a situation because peace is so compelling.

So You Have a Problem? No Problem.
If we are in Christ, then so are all of our circumstances. He is in us, we are a habitation in Him and we can’t be separated. So if we can’t be separated from the love of God, then neither can our circumstances be separated from the presence and power of God.

God is Not Reluctant to Bless.
Heaven has a right of possession over us in Christ, giving it the right to acquire our problems and provoke God’s favor to overcome them. We have favor with God through our placement in Christ, granting us an intentional bias in His heart and empowering us to ask Him for the things that are in line with His loving-kindness towards us.

Living a Lifestyle of Rejoicing.
Rejoicing is where we match God’s purpose and intention with our own and say “‘yes and amen” to who He wants to be for us. It’s agreement and engagement with who He really is. Through rejoicing, we can see how God wants to turn everything around and make it work for our good because it empowers us to receive when we are under pressure. It keeps us away from giving into fear, doubt, and unbelief by causing us to remain fresh in faith and the Lord’s presence.

Entering a Majesty Mindset
The key to all spirituality is majesty because it gives us a sense of who God is in everything that we do and experience. Majesty governs how we think about the Lord, our expectations of Him, and our experience of His favor in our life. By entering into majesty, we have the opportunity to become the happiest individual on the face of the earth. Anything less than majesty in our relationship with God is an inferior way to live.

Discovering a New Man Perspective
The key to effective learning is your ability to unlearn something you thought you knew. When we come into the Kingdom from the world, God divests us from everything the world taught us. He is now only dealing with the new, true us in Jesus, and we don’t need anything from the old to teach us about who we are in Christ.

Encountering the Brilliance of God's Goodness & Favor
It’s not difficult to discover the depths of God’s feelings for us. We have a home in His deepest affections and favor to remain close to Him. When the enemy digs a pit to ensnare us, God promises to fill it with blessings, favor and promises so that we can become the exact opposite of what he intended.

A Prayer of Thankfulness
We can live a life of celebration, knowing that God is powerful, faithful and wonderful on our behalf by giving thanks for who He is and who we are becoming in Him. I continually give thanks to God for being the kindest person I have ever met in my entire life.

Entering a New Place of Peace
When we walk with God, peace is one of the most tangible signs of His presence. He promises that we will always have a deposit of peace in our life because He is the God of peace, the very Prince of Peace.

Developing a Divine Advantage
God doesn’t want us to know truth in our head; He wants us to know the truth in our heart and have it revealed in the way we see, think, speak and act.

Nothing Works Against the Fruit of the Spirit
The Fruit of the Spirit is an encounter with God that leads us into an ongoing experience of who He is, creating a place for us to learn how we can abide in His nature. They give us the power of God and enable us to become Christ-like, which is always His primary intention.

God Has No Bad Thoughts Towards Us
God is remodeling our lives by renewing us into our new man in Christ. In this process, He is deeply passionate about walking with us to restore our thinking and develop new mindsets rooted in our identity in Him.
Aug 29, 2018
Living As a New Creation
The old you is irrelevant, useless and out-of-date, and has no power to make itself new. However, our old mindsets, practices, language and lifestyle can contain the Holy Spirit and prevent us from discovering who we really are in Jesus.

Upgrades are Always Available In the Mind of Christ
The mind of Christ allows us to turn a weakness into a joyful vulnerability to His goodness. In Him, we get to take all negative thoughts captive and turn them into brilliant ones. Our mindset is either working for us or against us, and through our new mind in Jesus, we always have upgrades in thinking available to us.
Jul 18, 2018
You Are Dead To Sin
Transformation comes by the renewing of our mind. As we upgrade the way we see, think, and speak about what God is doing and who we are becoming, we have the opportunity to renew our spiritual lenses.
Jul 07, 2018
Walking With God Humbly
Spiritual warriors walk humbly with God because they know humility is not timidity. They live from the reality of having confidence access to God through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross.
Jun 27, 2018
The Hallmark of a Spiritual Warrior
We have the opportunity to become a spiritual warrior that fights from the total majesty and the absolute certainty of God’s unchanging nature. When we feel intimidated by life’s situations, we have an opportunity to upgrade our intimacy with His nature and come into an experience of what He is really like.
Jun 18, 2018
Abiding In First Love
Abiding is about dwelling, living and remaining in the space God has created between Jesus and Himself. This gives us a place to have an intimate connection with both the Father and the Son, and the privilege of remaining there as the beloved.
May 30, 2018
The Starting Place for Breakthrough
Every circumstance gives us the opportunity to think brilliantly about God, ourselves, and the situation we are in. The key is learning to think with Jesus and live from His mind in order to receive the upgrades available to us in these situations.
May 21, 2018
Connecting to God's Passion
Our role in the earth is to be loved by God and then respond to that love. God gives us His love so we can be restored to His passion for us, which is defined by the way He loves and speaks about Jesus.

The Key to Experiencing God's Presence
Rest is the tangible expression of God’s presence. When we practice it, we’ll feel His touch, hear His voice, and experience His presence in a renewed way. Rest allows us to guard our inner territory and displace any negatives trying to infiltrate our lives because it’s a brilliant weapon against the enemy.
Apr 23, 2018
If We are In Jesus, Then So is Our Situation
Victory is our starting place in the Kingdom. We don’t need to get anywhere in our situations because we are already there in Jesus, giving us a breakthrough and victory that has already been assigned to us. We can’t live in Jesus and not be highly favored.

Why the Church Exists
When God hears the world, He hears something different than we do. He listens to the longings, hunger, and cries in people’s hearts. Yet, do we hear the desperation and the cries of wounded people? And furthermore how are we going to display God’s original intention towards them?

You Can't Make a Mistake When You are Learning
God knows when we do something for the first time, we are going to make a mistake, but He doesn’t call it a mistake. He sees it as learning because we haven’t done it before.

Turning Your Setback into a Comeback

God Holds Nothing Back From You
There is only one life! Christ in you provides the same power and privilege that He enjoyed as a Son. When you live fully in Him, you walk in expectation that will always be greater than your circumstances. This means there is only one life for us to be living: the life that He lives.

The Key to Walking in Our Divine Advantage
The lens of the Kingdom gives us the unique perspective of Jesus, which will renew our thinking and elevate our identity in the new man.

God is Pleased with You Because He is Pleased with Jesus
Grace is not undeserved favor. Grace is the empowering presence of God, that enables you to become the man or the woman that God sees when He looks at you.
