8 TRUTHS FROM GESTHEMANE

8 TRUTHS FROM GESTHEMANE

by Bill Elliff January 26, 2023

I have stood many times in the Garden of Gethsemane, and I am always speechless. It is a sacred place, for this is where the final battle was won by our Savior. The cross and the tomb were outcomes of a prayer time. Without Gesthemane, there might not have been a cross and an empty tomb. The Garden of Eden and the Garden of Gethsemane are inextricably linked: bookends of our sin and God’s solution.

PRAYING BIGGER PRAYERS

PRAYING BIGGER PRAYERS

by Bill Elliff January 21, 2023

Recently the Lord asked me this question: “Do you believe in Me enough to believe that if you never preached or wrote again, your PRAYING could accomplish just as much for My glory?” It was a sobering thought, and a prayer-elevating thought. For prayer brings God into the equation and can do anything God can do.

HIS SPEAKING VOICE

HIS SPEAKING VOICE

by Bill Elliff November 07, 2022

Of all the stunning things about Christ, one of the most compelling is this: Jesus speaks. John describes Him beautifully in the opening chapter of His gospel as the Word that was in the beginning and that continues to communicate to us even now. His voice, like yours, is one of the ways we come to know Him.

ONLY BY PRAYER

ONLY BY PRAYER

by Bill Elliff October 21, 2022

I do not pretend to understand all of this. But one thing this illustrates: there are things that God plans to do through prayer that He will not do any other way. (Read that sentence again and think about it personally—for your life and ministry).

THE WITHDRAWING CHRIST

THE WITHDRAWING CHRIST

by Bill Elliff October 18, 2022

When you gaze on Christ (and you must), you observe a life of perfect serenity. We look at Him as He was on earth and see a man that was never in a hurry but always on time. His withdrawing was an essential part of His balanced life.

WE SHOULD LISTEN TO GOD

WE SHOULD LISTEN TO GOD

God hears the prayers of His children, but some have learned to pray more often, more fervently, and more effectively.

HOW DO YOU MAKE EACH DECISION IN THE COMMON DAY AND HOW IS THAT WORKING FOR YOU?

HOW DO YOU MAKE EACH DECISION IN THE COMMON DAY AND HOW IS THAT WORKING FOR YOU?

by Bill Elliff June 29, 2022

Your life is made by multiple decisions. So, what do you do first as you face the choices of each day? Sadly, most of us do not do what Jehoshaphat recommended. “Please inquire FIRST for the word of the LORD.” The word “first” literally means “as the day.” It could mean “today, right now.” But it also implies “for this day, in this particular moment.”

HOW GOD LEADS US

HOW GOD LEADS US

by Bill Elliff May 04, 2022

God created men and women in His image. We have been fearfully and wonderfully made with amazing uniqueness and abilities. But none of us were designed to run without God. Millions have tried, with disastrous results. But when a man--particularly a leader--relies upon God with simple, consistent dependency, he discovers that God is waiting to lead him and those who follow him with amazing clarity.
