Using “Discovering Your Destiny” for Small Groups

Using “Discovering Your Destiny” for Small Groups

My book Discovering Your Destiny was released just about two years ago, and is currently my top-selling book. Our destiny is directly connected to, and flows out of, our relationship with God. While there is no formula to walking in your purpose, there are biblical principles and patterns that are important to understand. “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should...

Testimony: Deliverance While Reading “Can a Christian Have a Demon?”

Testimony: Deliverance While Reading “Can a Christian Have a Demon?”

As I work on writing my new book, Keys for Deliverance, I pray regularly that God will use the book to bring deliverance to those in need and also to equip people to minister deliverance to others. I even recently wondered if some would experience demonic manifestations and be delivered while simply reading it. I have noticed a pattern that whenever I preach and teach on the topic of deliverance from demons, people who are under demonic...

Why I Emphasize Deliverance from Demons

Why I Emphasize Deliverance from Demons

I recently announced that I am working on a new book that I plan to release later this year. Keys for Deliverance will focus on helping people receive freedom from the influence of evil spirits and be equipped to minister deliverance to others. I hope to remove confusion, and make the ministry of deliverance both understandable and practical. Deliverance has been a consistent aspect of my ministry for over a decade (click here for an...

New Book Project: Keys for Deliverance

New Book Project: Keys for Deliverance

I am excited to announce that I am working on writing a new book! The working title is Keys for Deliverance: Freedom from the Influence of Evil Spirits. When people consider the topic of deliverance from demons, there are a wide variety of responses. Some would rather not even think about it, considering it to be too dark or depressing. Some are fearful of the subject, while others are over-fascinated by it. Some are entirely skeptical of...

4 Things that Can Derail Our Destiny

4 Things that Can Derail Our Destiny

The following is derived from chapter 11 of my new book, Discovering Your Destiny. At the end of his life, the apostle Paul could look back and know that he was finishing well. He was able to say, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith” (2 Timothy 4:7). I certainly hope that I will be able to say the same thing when it’s time for me to go on to eternity. Unfortunately, not every character in the...

The Other Side of Your Obedience

The Other Side of Your Obedience

The following is derived from chapter 10 of my new book, Discovering Your Destiny. When it comes to moving forward on the path of our destiny, time does not necessarily equal progress. Destiny is not advanced by the mere passing of time, but by our steps of obedience to God. The children of Israel went forty years wandering in the wilderness without advancing in their destiny, all because of disobedience. When it was time for them to enter...

The Season of Stepping into Your Purpose

The Season of Stepping into Your Purpose

The following is derived from chapter 8 of my new book, Discovering Your Destiny. One of the vital things to remember in walking out our destiny is that life is lived out in seasons. Ecclesiastes 3:1 says, “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.” Just as there are seasons in the natural, there are seasons in our walk with God and in fulfilling our divine purpose. Understanding this can help us to keep in...

How Passion Fuels Destiny

How Passion Fuels Destiny

The following is derived from chapter 7 of my new book, Discovering Your Destiny. We may not realize it, but our passions and desires play a key role in the walking out of our destiny. They are a part of our wiring, and can be an indication of our calling. Jesus displayed some tremendous passion throughout His ministry. He was not simply going through motions out of robotic obedience; He was consumed with His call. Obedience to His Father...

How Do We Recognize Our Gifts?

How Do We Recognize Our Gifts?

The following is derived from chapter 6 of my new book, Discovering Your Destiny. Our gifts are a part of our unique identity, and one of the indicators of what we are called to do. Therefore, it is important that we gain a good grasp and realistic perspective on what they are and what they are not. Since gifts often come naturally to us, we may not recognize that we are operating in a gift. For example, you might have a teaching gift and...
