"Power to do the impossible resides in the spirits of those who know Me," I heard the Lord whisper early yesterday morning. I am more convinced than ever that every day that we neglect God is a day that we give more ground to the enemy. What is deposited in us cannot be taken from us, but in order to be effective against the world's daily assaults, in order to do the impossible, we must tap into God's power at least daily!
Having a “Type A” personality has become synonymous with being perpetually occupied, moving quickly from one task to the next, or prioritizing tasks at the expense of relationships.

Today, on Israel's Independence Day (Yom Ha'Atzma'ut), I feel the Lord longing for the freedom of His people. There is a tendency to settle in to "comfortable Christianity" and not to press in for ALL of the goodness of God to be manifest in our lives. I feel His longing for us to change that. I hear Him saying, "Arise, Church! Take up your pallet and walk! Don't yield to the paralysis of an invalid when I have made you free! For your destiny lies ahead of you, not in the past, and you must press forward to meet it."
