Expecting God To Move

“And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. To Him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen.” – 1 Peter 5:10-11   Father, today we take great comfort in the reminder that…

There Is Always Something To Fear

Peter left the boat while the other eleven Jesus-followers stayed put. The impressive King David fled his own realm when his renegade son, Absalom, facilitated a coup. Peter, the aforementioned water-walker, was the same man who trembled in the presence of a teenage girl and denied his Savior. Frankly, all the disciples scattered like birds…

Drunk on Deception in America

This crazy culture is full of dark deception and frenzied with audacious lies. From the media, the government, the elites in Hollywood and the power-gripping cabals scattered across the globe, it’s a constant sewage-stream of lies. And I am not hesitant to declare this publicly. Jesus Christ came to set us free from sin, and…

Jesus Thirsted So You Don’t Have To

Jeff_Lyle

“Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, said, I thirst” – John 19:48 Upon the cross, our dying King never lost His awareness of what was happening with Him. John testifies above that Jesus Christ was fully cognizant of the precision of the process of His own suffering…

The Right Thing The Wrong Way

There is a wrong way to do the right thing. How many times must we learn that God seeks to leads us from “the what” into “the how” of the what. The Almighty is not a celestial pragmatist that merely scans to see if an objective is being accomplished by His servant. He is a…

It’s Hard To Remain Simple

So, I have been teaching on the gifts of the Holy Spirit for several weeks, with several more weeks to go.  Perhaps the thing which stands out to me more than everything else is that God’s Word constantly affirms our oneness with each other each time the variety of spiritual gifts in operation among us…

Making the Most of What Remains

Thinking about life’s pathway over the last few days, I sought to boil down what it is that I want to do with the remainder of the second half of my years.  Statistically, I’m a good bit beyond the chronological mid-point of the average lifespan for an American male, so there cannot be the option…

Here Come The Prophets

The world is getting louder.  Our culture is becoming bolder.  Shut our eyes as we might, it is no longer possible to honestly say that things are going to improve apart from a Holy Spirit initiated awakening in America.  Let’s hold to a semblance of integrity and call things as they are: America is in…

Settled No More

When I was in the fourth grade I made up my mind that I was going to be a disk jockey when I grew up. I had a dream of working by myself in a radio station with fat headphones on my ears and a big silver microphone in front of my mouth. I wanted…

Sorrow & Joy Together

“But I am poor and sorrowful: let Your salvation, O God, set me up on high.” – Psalm 69:29 The Psalmist shares a secret that all believers know.  He presents a paradox that all who hunger and thirst after God are familiar with.  He inside-out’s us, and we nod our heads in agreement with this…

A New Season for Transforming Truth

God reserves the right to initiate changes throughout our lifetimes. Nobody’s life remains the same forever. For those who are following Jesus, there is the consistent component of change. Because Jesus does not stand still but, instead, moves forward as He leads His sheep, those who follow Him experience seasons wherein He takes us in…

My 2021 Break-Up Letter

January 29, 2021 Dear Doubt, Hey there. Please forgive the formality of me writing a letter to you. I know it seems weird, especially since we spent so much time together last year. I really felt like I needed to put my thoughts down on paper so you would understand clearly what I need to…

Politics & Culture: Who Are My People?

People have asked me multiple times over the last year why I don’t speak out more on political issues. Recently, I have received a few messages from a few people who wrongly assumed I had posted something on social media as a rebuttal to something political or cultural that they posted on their own timelines.…

Positioning Yourself for Revival

All Christians would vote YES for revival to break out. We all want to see powerful conversions from spiritual death to eternal life. We want to witness an awakening sweep across a dull and dusty Church in America. I believe in healings and miracles…but I don’t see nearly enough of either one of these beautiful…

The Gospel According to Christmas

transforming truth blog

Two thousand years ago, here is some of what was occurring in the universe: God the Father declared in Heaven that the fullness of time on earth had arrived – He sent His Son to us…with an unstoppable plan of rescue. Supreme God would become fully human as the Creator entered into His own creation.…

Keep Saying Yes

“If the LORD is with us, why then has all this happened to us? And where are all His wonderful deeds that our fathers recounted to us?” – the question of Gideon in Judges 6:13 Some of you have been wondering the same thing as Gideon. Praise has felt hollow. Prayer has become wearisome. The…

The Enemy Is After Your Beans

Sometimes you come across a bible verse or two that seemingly holds nothing of importance to you in the moment. Sometimes the Holy Spirit nudges you to go back and read it again.  Sometimes, when you read it the second or third time, you discover a little treasure that you had previously missed.  That’s what happened to…

Boasting While Wearing Diapers

“God has chosen what is insignificant and despised in the world – what is viewed as nothing – to bring to nothing what is viewed as something, so that no one may boast in his presence. It is from him that you are in Christ Jesus, who became wisdom from God for us-our righteousness, sanctification,…

Where Are the Prophets?

“Elijah came near to all the people and said, “How long will you go limping between two different opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, then follow him.” And the people did not answer him a word.” – 1 Kings 18:21 We need prophets like Elijah today. Where are the men…

Addressing the Pride of the Bride

“Is it nothing to you, all you who pass by?” These ancient words of Jeremiah in Lamentations 1:12 are on my mind this morning. He desperately wanted his generation to deeply consider the destruction of their homeland due to their sin. He did not want them to push it out of their minds. He did…

Seeking Speech Therapy

Psalm 141:1-3 “O LORD, I call upon you; hasten to me! Give ear to my voice when I call to You! Let my prayer be counted as incense before You, and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice! Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of…

Reset…Bounceback…Whatever We Call It

Hi, friends. It has been a while since I have personally posted here because, well, frankly, life has been happily boring these days during my ministry sabbatical. In case you had not heard, I am now officially cancer free. My healing did not come in an instant miracle, but the end result is so good…

Spiritually Soothed by Truth & Welcome

Weakened? Forgotten? Seeking to move on from a personal fumble? Exhausted with life, people, barriers and breakdowns? I have earned a Masters Degree in those areas. More than once in my life, I have needed the help of God in my season of spiritual suffocation. “We do not have a high priest who is unable…
