We can never have a deep enough revelation of God's love. In this morning's devotional and prayer call, we prayed for a greater revelation of God, who is love, as well as a greater anointing to love God with all our mind, all our heart, all our soul and all our strength. These calls are very prophetic and relevant to your every day life. Click the headline to access a recording of the prayer call.
Many of you are in a transition, in between where you are and where God wants to take you. In this morning prayer call, we prayed for those going through transition. We came against delays, hindrances, and obstacles that are preventing God's people from entering into God's perfect will. People emailed me saying they experienced deliverance on this call!

Every year we set out hearts for a new beginning of some sort—but 2015 is different than 2014, 2013, 2012 and the years before. That’s because 2015, as the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart, is the year of new beginnings. Let this video encourage you. I'll release an article in a few days that expounds on this.
I started hearing God speak to me as soon as I got saved—and I needed to. It would be an understatement to describe my situation as desperate.
See, I got saved in a county jail. I was falsely accused of a crime I did not commit and the state wanted to send me to prison for five years. (You can read my entire testimony here.) God had a different idea and sent a group of evangelists to the jail to offer testimonies of Jesus' saving grace.
I was sold on the gospel—and sold out to Jesus—but I was still facing five years in prison on a false charge. I didn't know what to do, so I just started reading the paperback Bible they gave me after the jailhouse crusade, praying and attending any sort of quasi-church service I could find behind those cold hard walls.
Then He spoke to me. God made it clear that I would be released from that jail on the 40th day. I told everyone who would listen that I would be released on the 40th day. I told my "bunkie." I told the correctional officers. I told my mother.
I didn't know it, but I was warring with the prophetic word—and I won. I was released on the 40th day, completely vindicated. It was just as God said it would be. I write more about my testimony—and share daily prophetic words that Lord used to inspire, comfort and counsel me—in my new devotional Mornings With the Holy Spirit. But in this three-part series I want to share with you some fundamentals of hearing from God.
Pastor Ryan Bell made a strange New Year's resolution in 2014—he aimed to live a godless year.
Bell, no relation to universalist Rob Bell, kept a blog to chronicle his yearlong journey without God and even had a documentary crew on hand to film what turned out to be his transformation from a Seventh-Day Adventist pastor to a full-blown atheist.
"I've looked at the majority of the arguments that I've been able to find for the existence of God, and on the question of God's existence or not, I have to say I don't find there to be a convincing case, in my view," Bell told NPR's Arun Rath.
"I don't think that God exists. I think that makes the most sense of the evidence that I have and my experience. But I don't think that's necessarily the most interesting thing about me."
What? How do you move from accepting a call of God into full-time ministry only to turn your back on him and decide to exchange a close relationship with God to a "closer relationship with reality"?
In the days and weeks ahead, prophetic voices around the world will release prophecies for 2015. You'll read a handful of them on the "Prophetic Insight" section of charismamag.com.
But before we charge ahead to weigh prophetic mandates, directives and warnings for 2015, let's take a minute to look back at the prophetic words declared over 2014. After all, you can't always limit God's words to a 12-month timeline.
As I've said before, it's possible that some 2014 prophecies won't be relevant for years and others will remain relevant for years to come. So, again, before we move on to the next new prophetic word, let's review what prophetic voices declared last year and respond according to His Spirit.
We all get weary sometimes, and this morning I was led to pray against the weariness that tempts us to quit pressing into to God's promises.
