He had a hunger to know God personally, to call his community of faith to revival, and to disciple the new generations. Impressed by God that Marcus was an Elisha God was calling me to invest my life in, I asked...

The Prince of Peace Faced the Storm
The Prince of Peace Faced the Storm

I asked God what to do. He said it was not a normal storm, but that it was a demonic storm. He told me to preach louder. The storm grew louder. I was soon impelled to yell the message at the top of my lungs, but the storm now raged like a screaming, mythical monster. People a meter away could not hear a single thing.

On the morning we were to fly out, I received word from the bishop’s niece that the bishop had cancelled the meetings where I would be preaching. He had received word that all flights from the USA would be cancelled to South Africa. So, on the Sunday morning we were to fly he told all of his people in his churches that we were not coming. I asked God what to do. God said, “The bishop cancelled the meetings, but I didn’t. Go anyway!”

We came to Lacombe, Alberta with less than one hundred dollars in cash, and that was it. Our “river to cross” was that we needed to find a place to rent to stay immediately. We kept praying, and God impressed us to step into the proverbial Jordan River and cross it! We called the owner, and he said…

A quiet man nearing retirement ambled up to me after the service. He looked both ways to make sure no one was listening. “If God could speak through Darla today, do you think He might be able to speak through me?” he asked timidly. Two weeks later, he was...

Shocked, Elijah watched as the messenger ran away in the rain. The cold rain dripped off his head and nose. He was hungry, cold, and wet. Discouraged with the defiance of Jezebel and the spineless cowardice of Ahab, he pondered his dreary fate. Soon he would be dead if the queen had anything to say about it.

God’s Word equates the Spirit of God with the Hand of the Lord. The Holy Spirit makes things happen. The Spirit of God is Somebody, not something. The Spirit of God is the unseen Hand on God’s people, leading and guiding them. Down through time, the Spirit of the Lord has come upon His people to empower them to do what they could not do otherwise...

It is one thing to boldly exercise your faith in front of a crowd. That is scary and difficult. Elijah could have lost his life. But to pray in the secret place for what God already told you will come to pass and receive nothing in return is another danger. Elijah could have lost his...

God impressed us to come and pray and train the people again. The church promised to find more people. On the appointed night, we arrived with much hope and expectation. Announcements had been made from the front of church during the worship service. Less showed up than the first time! But we got on our knees and prayed and claimed God’s promises.
