What Do You See?

Posted on April 27

WHAT DO YOU SEE? It’s always easy to see what is wrong rather than what is right in situations. John D. Rockefeller was head of Standard Oil Company. A man high in his organization made a bad decision that cost the company $2 million. When people in the company heard about it, they were afraid to be in Rockefeller’s presence because they knew he was trying to figure out what to do to the man... more »

Communicating the Complete Message

Posted on April 20

COMMUNICATING THE COMPLETE MESSAGE I have had the opportunity to give training to about twelve thousand pastors since establishing this leadership ministry fourteen years ago. I think the area where this has made the biggest difference is in India. I have been to India five times and helped train over 3,000 pastors there. The church that hosted the conferences in northern India is New Life Assembly. It is huge. They average over 46,000 people in... more »

Seven Words From the Cross

Posted on April 13

SEVEN WORDS FROM THE CROSS Our salvation is through the cross. Let’s read and listen to the seven last words of Jesus on the cross: The PARDONING word: Luke 23:32-38 Jesus was forced to carry His cross up to a place called Calvary. There, they crucified Him along with two thieves. Hear the pardoning words of Jesus, “Father, forgive them for they do not know what they are doing.” The cross is about how God... more »

Eye Exam: Foresight – Part 3

Posted on April 6

EYE EXAM: FORESIGHT – PART 3 Not only do we need to have good hindsight of the past and good insight for the present, but we also need good foresight to see God’s magnificent future for those who believe in and follow Him. Paul writes, “You don’t have to see something before it’s there. If you see it, you don’t have any hope; but faith and hope can see things that are not actually there.”... more »

Eye Exam: Insight – Part 2

Posted on March 30

EYE EXAM: INSIGHT – PART 2 Hindsight deals with our past. Insight deals with our present. Insight is being able to look and see what something really means and apply it to our present situation. Insight is essential to deal with both everyday situations and to help us prepare for good foresight. The Bible says, “A wise man sees evil and hides himself. A wicked man simply proceeds and pays the penalty.” (Proverbs 27:12) Insight... more »

Eye Exam: Hindsight – Part 1

Posted on March 23

EYE EXAM: HINDSIGHT – PART 1 One area in life where we need to have good eyesight is in hindsight. Read the following as an eye exam to determine how good your hindsight is. In the next couple of weeks, I will offer an eye exam for insight and foresight. Poor hindsight can cause us to feel like we have accomplished everything on our own. Poor hindsight creates an attitude that it’s “all about me.”... more »

What's your plan in response to the invasion of Ukraine?

What’s Your Plan?

Posted on March 16

WHAT’S YOUR PLAN? Russia has invaded Ukraine. How should I respond? Here is my action plan! PRAY I will pray. Prayer is the most powerful weapon that I have. God has always done unbelievable miracles as a result of people’s prayers. Russia’s invasion did not take God by surprise, nor does it leave Him confused about what to do. He’s got this! I will pray bodaciously for all of us to accept God’s intervention to... more »

Listen and Obey!

Posted on March 2

LISTEN AND OBEY! God can change anybody, anytime, anywhere, and I think God has a sense of humor in doing what He does in the lives of people. I attended the men’s “What’s at Stake” dinner recently. A friend of mine was the speaker. I learned things about him I never knew. He is an example of what God can do. When he was six years old, his mom and dad divorced. His dad had... more »

From Discarded to Displayed

Posted on February 23

FROM DISCARDED TO DISPLAYED It’s amazing how God can take insignificant things, many of which have been discarded, and display them for positive results! God does that with people and places. My office is a good example. Mike Henig is the chairman of my non-profit board. Mike has a beautiful building which is the home office for Henig Furs. On each side of the home office, he has built commercial office buildings. I had an... more »
